War Bride Elopes
UTICA, N.Y., April 9. (AP) - Utica police were searching today for an English war bride whose husband reported she had left a note saying she was going away with another man.
William F. Clark, a gasoline station employee, told police that his bride, Mary Walker, 18, of Snibson, England, left a note at the hotel where they were staying informing him she had met another Utica boy, that she "loved him" and was going away with him.
Mary arrived in New York Thursday on the Queen Mary.
