There was considerable red tape to unwind before John could start for the States last week, but everything was arranged and he boarded a plane at Prestwick, Scotland, Friday evening, June 18.

When Nancy came, she too made the trip by plane, being met in New York by Russell Sands. The couple married before they came to Algona. met while Russell was in seas military service.
