Sgt. and Mrs. Jack W. Hammes are now at home at 406 E. Fifth street, Grand Island, Neb. The bridegroom is the son of Mrs.
George Hammes, 902 Z court, Sheboygan.
Before the marriage which was performed by the Rev. Albert Godlewski on June 16 at the St. Mary's cathedral in Grand
Island, Mrs. Hammes was Miss Mary Ellen McLain, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Glen McLain of Spalding, Neb., and her father
presented her in marriage. Miss Lucille McLain, the bride's sister, was the maid of honor, and S/Sgt. Allen J. Haydell of
Louisiana was the best man.
After the nuptial mass and double ring ceremony, a luncheon was served to the immediate families in the Oriental room of
the Hotel Stratton, and during the evening a reception was held at the home of the couple.
In 1942 Sgt. Hammes graduated from North High school and later he enlisted in the air corps. For the past year and
one-half he has been a senior control tower operator with the 106th Airways Communications squadron at the Grand Island
army air field.
