Following her marriage in 1913, Mrs. McVey lived in Washington, D. C., where she took an active part in establishing Children's Hospital. In later years she lived in Havre de Grace, Md. She served on the Board of the Harford County Hospital and the Ravre de Grace Library.

She was a member of the Governor William Paca Chap- ter of the DAR and served as re- gent for many years. Prior to coming to West Vir- ginia in 1961, Mrs. McVey made her home in Bradenton, Fla., where she served as regent of the Osceola Chapter of the D.A.R., and was a member of the Wom- an's Club of Bradenton. During these years she enjoyed extensive travel in the United States and Mexico, and made several trips to Europe. Mrs. McVey was a member of St. John's Episcopal Church in Harpers Ferry.

St. Joe Knocks Off Berkeley Springs The St. Joseph's Catholic High cagers of Martinsburg bounced right back onto the victory road Tuesday night after having been temporarily stopped by Charles Town Friday night, when they scored a 70-51 victory over Berk- eley Springs on the St. Joe hard- woods. The Crusaders jumped out to an early 20-7 first period lead behind a well-balanced scoring attack and held to a slim lead through the second and third per iods and then broke the game wide open in the home stretch. Ie was the second Bi-State Con- ~ terence win for the Crusaders and their fourth victory in five games. The defeat was the second for Berkeley Springs in seven games.
