GI Bridegroom Can’t Get to U.S.

London (AP)
Thomas Thompson complained Sunday: “They welcome GI brides in the United States, but no one except my wife seems to care about a GI bridegroom.

Mr. Thompson married an American WAC in England three years ago. For two years he had been trying to join her at her Utica (N.Y.) home.

He said he obtained all necessary British papers to travel, but American authorities required evidence he would not be a public charge. He had cabled his wife, Jane for an affidavit to that effect.
