Lady Helen, the 28-year-old daughter of the Duke of Kent, is 21st in line for the throne. Being that far down in the succession, she has generally avoided the spotlight that follows Queen Elizabeth II and her close family. Lady Helen wore a plain white, silk dress with a gem-encrusted V-neck at the front and a V-shaped back cutaway, followed by a 6-foot train, to marry commoner Tim Taylor, an art dealer. But for a country fascinated by the marital troubles of Prince Charles, Prince Andrew and Princess Anne, the royal guests were far more interesting than the bride. Their actions at the wedding surely will prompt new speculation about whether reconciliations are coming or whether rifts are widening further. Prince Andrew arrived without his estranged wife, Sarah, and walked to the chapel with Prince Charles, whose wife, Princess Diana, is reported to be bitterly unhappy. Princess Diana came hand-in-hand with her 7-year-old Ammons JACKSONVILLE Funeral arrangements for Mrs. Clemmie Ammons, 73, of Wessex House in Jacksonville, will be announced by Ervin Funeral Home.

The action left the spacecraft orbitirlg Venus and recording radar images but unable to transmit them. A backup radio is continuing to transmit information on the Magellan's condition and a steady stream of data from which scientists expect to map gravitational variations reflecting the planet's interior structure. Officials of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., said Friday that they still did not understand the source of the transmitter's problems. Static has repeatedly overwhelmed the signal when the transmitter has reached certain operating temperatures. Jim Doyle, a laboratory spokesman, said the transmitter's behavior was erratic, sometimes performing clearly at one temperature only to erupt with noise at the same temperature another time. cepted tor tall preschool registration for ages 3 to 4 years at the Calhoun County YMCA.
