Red Cross

Miss Barbara Howard



Miss Barbara Howard, who has served since October, 1943, overseas with the American Red Cross, writes her parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. E. Howard, 100 Kingsley avenue, of her "fascinating Cook's tour" across the European continent. "I can't help but feel," she writes, "that if all the discontented souls, strikers and such, could take their Sunday afternoon drive through the Bastogne area, their ideas might change."

Miss Howard Becomes Bride of Capt. King

Wed Monday in two European countries and planning to spend her honeymoon in a third was Miss Barbara Howard field director with the civilian war relief of the American Red Cross overseas and daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. E. Howard, 100 Kingsley avenue.

Miss Howard and Capt. Robert M. King of Washington, D.C. exchanged civil vows in Luneville, France, Monday and then traveled to a church near Heidelberg, Germany, for a second ceremony. They were then to spend a wedding trip to Chamonix, Switzerland, according to a cablegram received by the bride's parents.

The couple met at Camp Bowie, Tex., and the groom has since served with the infantry in north Africa, Sicily, Italy and Austria. Mrs. King, a graduate of Iowa States Teachers college in Cedar Falls, where she majored in physical education, was an instructor in the schools at Tipton and Davenport before entering service with the Red Cross.

She has been in service since June, 1942 and has recently been serving in Germany.
