As the pipe organ pealed forth the strains of the wedding march, the bride and groom, attended by Miss Rose Grady of O'Neill, Nebr., and Robert Ryan of Worthington, moved down the aisle and took their places in the Sanctuary where the marriage ceremony took place.

The bride was becomingly attired in a gown of white silk with point lace trimmings. A bridal veil and wreath of orange blossoms most fittingly completed the costume.

Immediately following the ceremony the wedding party was driven to the home of the bride's uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. Homer V.

The house was tastefully decorated with potted plants, cut flowers and autumn leaves.
