- Popular Young People to Marry
Announcement is made of the forthcoming nuptials of Marjorie Ruth Mateer and Milton Miles Beckwith, Saturday afternoon, September 24th, at 4 o'clock, in the auditorium of Fullerton Church. The Rev. Roy H. Brown, D. D., former pastor of Fullerton and beloved by all, will come from Des Moines, Iowa, to read the marriage ceremony.
Both Marjorie and Milton long have been actively identified in the work of the young people of Fullerton, the former being a teacher in the Bible School and the latter for several years acting as associate superintendent of the school. The young couple are immensely popular with the membership of Fullerton, as a result of their intense interest in the affairs of the church and for their own genuineness. The coming bride is a graduate of Chicago Teachers' College and taught in the grade schools of Hammond, Indiana. Mr. Beckwith was graduated from Northwestern University, where gained considerable fame as a member of one of that university's numerous collegiate championship swimming teams. He is a member of the Phi Mu Delta fraternity.
Mr. and Mrs. Fred D. Mateer of the Granada Hotel, the future bride's father and mother, extend a cordial invitation to all friends to attend the wedding.
Although no formal invitations will be issued, the numerous friends of the young couple are expected to tax the capacity of the church auditorium.
September 24th also is the 25th wedding anniversary of the bride's parents, which will be celebrated at 8 o'clock that evening with the opening of the winter season at the Granada Hotel. All friends are, through these columns, tendered an invitation to be present at the informal reception and musicale in honor of the elder Mateers."
"One of the most beautiful weddings ever held in our old edifice was that in which Margorie Ruth Mateer became the bride of Milton Miles Beckwith, associate superintendent of the Bible School. Marjorie and Milton were the happy lovebirds at the reception which immediately followed the ceremony at the Granada Hotel. The bride's sister, Miss Dorothy Mateer, was bridesmaid, and the groom's brother, Willard, best man.
