Martha Hinshaw, James
Clark Wed In Roselle

Miss Martha Hinshaw and James Clark, two Roselle young people, were united in marriage July 12.  The 5:30 o'clock ceremony took place at Roselle Methodist church, with the Rev. H. Langdori reading the vows.  

The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Hinshaw of Elmhurst.  

The floor-length white bridal gown was fashioned with a bodice of lace over satin, and a skirt of nylon tulle over satin with lace insets.  Mrs. Clark carried white roses in a cascade bouquet.  

Mrs. Laverne Gieseke, the bride's sister, was matron of honor.  She wore white organdy over green taffeta, with the bodice of eyelet organdy.  Eyelet organdy insets adorned the skirt.  

Mrs. Jayne Harmening, bridesmaid, was similarly gowned.  Both carried yellow carnations.  

The groom's brother, Roy Clark, was best man, and Laverne Gieseke and William Saxon served as ushers.  

The marriage service was beautified with vocal solos by Mrs. Howard Turner.  Her selections were "Because" and "I Love You Truly".  Mrs. E. Schaefer, the bridegroom's cousin, was at the organ.  Church decorations consisted of white and yellow gladioli.  

One hundred twenty guests were entertained at a wedding dinner and reception, immediately following the ceremony, at the Lutheran school hall in Roselle.  

The newlyweds are spending their honeymoon at Yellowstone National park.  Upon their return, they will reside at the bridegroom's address, 31 E. Pine st., Roselle, until going to Lafayette, Ind., in the fall for Mr. Clark to continue his schooling.
