She Is in now from Holly- cod to receive her first papers, visit Orant'w Tomb, 'Wash Ington Square, the Statue of Liberty, and tell •Jie world that she Is becoming an American oltlzen just ae fast &a she can. She ii going Ic take a moonlight rtde. too, on the Stalen Island ferry ferry and visit tho Central Park zoo Olympe Bradna ....but that has nothing to do with her going native.
