French War Bride's Role Happy
One as Housewife, Worker Here
By Larry Kott
When petite Andree Perry dis
carded her white uniform and hair
net and shook out her dark locks
to appear in a golden blouse and
tailored grey skirt behind the in
formation desk in the lobby of the

direction of a successful adjust
