Having completed the major part of her nurse’s training at Saint Joseph’s hospital, Ottumwa, Ann Neal, United States Cadet Nurse, has been assigned to the Naval Hospital in Seattle, Washington, to complete her course.

Miss Neal went to Ottumwa Tuesday afternoon after spending a month’s vacation with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ray Neal, in Greene, and is joining her roommate, Mary Virginia Wickenkamp of Sigourney, who also has been assigned to the Seattle hospital.

The girls will go together to the West Coast, where they will be training for four months.
