(Continued On Page 2) The Curry-Barnett Nuptials Baltimore, Maryland was the scene of a beautiful wedding when on the evening of February 5, 1949.

A native of Ohio, Mr. Curry is a veteran of World War II, he served as Mas ter Sergeant in the European theatre. Currently, the Currys are making their home in Washington, D. C. The dates for the summer school have been set for June 6 to July 13 for the first session, and from July 14 to August 23 for the second session.

By the adding of certain courses such as Chemistry and Anatomy, it is hoped that more students will come to the institution for the ex pressed purpose of getting pre paratory work for such fields as Nursing, Medicine and the like.
