Whence came we? Whither are we bound? Except we accept the words of Divine revelation, then indeed are we adrift upon an unchartered sea. But we are here. We grow up, imbibing book know- ledge to a degree, but generally un- willing to learn from the experiences of those who have gone before--so burn our fingers amt undergo other painful experiences. Then comes one of the wonderful experiences of human life: We get married. Have to learn to bear and forbear--with all that those words mean--both on the part of man and woman. Another experience, usually' a hap- py one, is the birth of our children-- boys and girls What a puzzle they are, with their questions, their" sur- prisingly queer tastes and ideas! Why art they, so often, quite different from either parent ? The years pass, and then we are so frequently shocked upon discovering that some one else has become more necessary to the life of son or dau- ghter than either father or mother. They marry, or are given in marriage. And then came the time when you were dubbed "grandma," or "grandpa." Wasn't there a kind of thrill of pride in your heart at that ? And the gramlchihtren grow up. Then, first thing you know you are invited to a wedding--that of one of your granchildren. Well, that is as far as our persona/ experience goes. The ceremony took place in Yoeman's Hall, Santa Moniea, at 9:30 p. m. on Wednesday evening, July 16th. The high contracting parties were Miss Ferol C. Wallace, (laughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. Carl Wallace (net Smith), of Santa Monica, and Mr. Frank C. Stone of Los Angeles. The bride and her father art both officers of tile American Yoeman fra- ternal organization and 250 members of the lodge were guests of the occa- sion. The-hall was decorated in dahlias and chrysanthemums. Before the cere- mony Miss Otile Macintosh sang "Oh Promise Me," "The Sweetest Story Story" Ever Told" and "Because," ac- companied by Claudine Reed, who also played the wedding march. Preceeding the wedding party the drill team of California-Pacific lodge of the American Yoeman o~[ Los An- geles, composed of fourteen women in white nniforms, entered, each carrying a cnrved wand covered with ferns and sweet peas. These formed a flowered arch through which the bride and her attendants marched to the center of the room, where the minister and bridegroom waited. The team then formed a half-circle behiud the minis- ter, their wands making a background of greenery and flowers. The bride was proceeded by little Saralyn Emory, who carried the ring in a large rose, and the flower girt, Lenora Isabelle Montero, The matron of honor was Mrs. Rolland Putnuln, who wore blue crepe and carried sweet peas. The bride came to the altar on the arm of her father. Her gown was sand-colored crepe beaded in gold and pearl beads and she carried a shower boquet of golden Ophelia roses and sweet peas.
