H. S. Theobald Is Married

The following news items taken from the Sheboygan County News, published at Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin, will be of interest to readers of the Review, as the young man mentioned herein was for many years a resident of this city; prior to his entering Beloit College:

"At eleven o'clock on Tuesday morning, July 31, 1917, at St. Peter's Episcopal Church, in this city, a pretty wedding took place amid beautiful decorations of pink and white roses. The happy occasion was the marriage of Miss Lucy Malvina Sanford, younger daughter of Mrs. B. H. Sanford, of this city, and Mr. Harold Stephen Theobald, son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Theobald, of Waterloo, N. Y.

"The church was filled with invited guests and while they were arriving two selections, "The Swan" and "Berceuse," (the latter by Godard) were played by Mrs. O. H. Hertzberg at the organ and Miss Irene Solle, of Fond du Lac, violin. The bridal party entered the church to the strains of the wedding march from Lohengrin, also played by Mrs. Hertzberg and Miss Solle. The couple was attended by Miss Hazel Sanford as maid of honor and Mr. John Royer as best man. The ribbon bearers were Misses Ruth Thomas, Katherine Smiley, Margaret Smiley and Katherine Thomas, all very pretty in white dresses.

"The solemn and impressive wedding service was read by the Rev. N. D. Stanley, assisted by the Rev. C. S. Turquand. The bride was very charming in a gown of white Georgette crepe with a hand made silk veil that was worn by her mother at her marriage. The bride also carried a bouquet of pink and white roses. The maid of honor was equally attractive in pink Georgette crepe and she, too carried roses. Following the ceremony, as the bridal party left the church, Mendelssohn's wedding march was played.

"At the home of the bride's mother where the decorations were also in pink and white, a dainty luncheon was served to a few intimate friends of the couple and Mr. and Mrs. Theobald took the 2:04 p.m. train from Sheboygan for Waterloo, N. Y., his former home. They will also visit Niagara Falls and other points of interest in the East. After October 15 they will be at home at Oshkosh, Wis., where Mr. Theobald has accepted a position as head of the department of chemistry in the Oshkosh high school.

"Both bride and groom are accomplished and worthy young people who have the sincere good wishes of a host of friends. The bride graduated from the Sheboygan Falls high school, {class of 1911} and later from Grafton Hall, Fond du Lac, and for the past four years has been instructor of music in the public schools of Sheboygan Falls, while the groom, who is a graduate of Beloit College, has filled the position of assistant principal of the Sheboygan Falls High School the past three years with marked success."
