Reception Honors Ensign Barlow and Bride

As a charming courtesy to welcome home their Ensign Alton Murray Barlow and his bride, the former Caddie Condon, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C.F. Condon of 3724 Berry Drive, Mr. and Mrs. Elliott Barlow entertained with a reception Sunday evening at their home 11048 Hortense street. This was the first trip home for Ensign Barlow since his enlistment three years ago in the U.S. Navy. He is assigned to a destroyer and leaving soon for oversea duty.

Miss Condon accompanied by her mother flew to New York in the spring where she was married May 9, in the chapel at the Marine Academy at King’s Point Long Island, where the bridegroom was stationed. This is the first time home for the bride. She and her husband left Tuesday after a short stay, for San Francisco where Ensign Barlow had to report.

More than 150 friends assemble to congratulate the young and extend greetings to them. Both have a host of friends in the Valley where they have lived and attended school. The bride is a past queen on North Hollywood Bethel Job’s Daughters, an accomplished pianist and teacher. Mrs. Barlow expects to remain here while her husband is overseas.
