Who said 'Desperate times call for drastic measures'?
It may be so old a saying that you won't be able to find an original attribution. To go a bit older than 1964: according to the Oxford dictionary in quotations, on the 6th November 1605, Guy Fawkes is reputed to have said "The desperate disease requires a dangerous remedy"... which is very similar to "extremis malis extrema remedia". But it does not credit this as the original source.

It means that when people get into trouble, for example financial trouble, they may be "backed into a corner" and feel forced to do things they wouldn't normally do in terms of survival. For example, suppose that you get lost in the woods. After a few days without food, you become desperate for a …meal, and so you may find yourself eating plants, bugs, animals, fungus, etc. that you wouldn't normally eat just to survive. This portrays the meaning of the phrase "desperate times call for desperate measures" - the desperate time, or desperate situation, is that you are stuck in a forest without any normal food or means of obtaining such food; the desperate measure is the action plan you follow, namely, to eat anything that is edible until you can afford to eat normally again (i.e., when you find your way out of the woods).

HELP you are in desperate need of decoration in your room you have recently moved into a drastically smaller room leaving you with little room and little light and you want to brighten it up?
Light colours will help in this situation. If you like yellows, a soft butter-yellow on the walls will add brightness and warmth. Use cool blues and greys in your linens and accessories for a comfortable style. Try to avoid painting the room white, it usually just looks unfinished. That said, …shades of white on white as a purposeful decorating look is lovely, particularly if you accessorize with soft blues and tans. This results in a "beach house" style. Also, bring in additional lighting, not just task lighting at desks and in reading areas, but other forms of ambient light will help to keep your room from resembling a cave. If the furniture you brought with you is too big for the room, think of getting rid of some of it. Decide what is essential and remove what you don't need. One way of saving space in a bedroom is by changing your bed, lift it higher off the floor and add drawers under it. You can purchase a "Captain's bed" or make one yourself. This will give you storage and at the same thing eliminate the need for a dresser. Remember, a clean and tidy space tends to look bigger, so keep clutter to a minimum. ( Full Answer )
