LIFE IN SPOONER -- When the Soldiers Are Married, the Town Celebrates.
SPOONER, April 30. - Village folk made it a real family affair in celebrating Wednesday night in the auditorium, the marriage of three Spooner men.
Carl H. Stenberg returned that morning from Duluth, where he had been married to Miss Martha Stenberg Monday afternoon. Carl is a member of the village council. He served overseas in France and in the army of occupation as a member of the 54th Pioneer infantry.
Then Arthur H. Chamberlain, the News foreman, had brought his bride from Winnipeg Saturday night. She was formerly Miss Lizzie Coe, who arrived three weeks ago from Essex, England to be married at the "Peg." Because of immigration rules she was unable to come down with her husband until her passport had been vised at Washington. Arthur helped win the war with the First Canadian engineering and while overseas won his bride.
The third happy man was Erick A. Swanson, who was married here to Miss Guilda Johnson Saturday night. Erick was another vet, and, while he didn't get overseas, he fought sand at Camp Cody. He is employed by the Spooner Mercantile company.
The Spooner orchestra gave the program and the newly weds were then marched out in the center of the auditorium and showered with all sorts of kitchen utensils, groceries, linen and "what not." This was followed by an old fashioned charivari staged by the younger folk.
Following lunch, there was dancing and the newly-weds were given the well wishes of the community.
