War Bride Unhappy About Arrival
in U.S.

NEW YORK, June 7(AP)
Ė The sight of American soil only produced more tears when Mrs. Margaret Garrett arrived by plane from London.

The British bride of former Sgt. John Garrett, of Orlando, Fla, sobbed to news men, saying she didnít know why she had refused to make the trip before. But it was altogether apparent she was unhappy at being in the U.S.

Mrs. Garrett was scheduled to reach Florida yesterday.

She said, ďIíve got to find him and decide what weíll do. He didnít want to come to England and I didnít want to come to America.
