Before a circle of intimate friends and relatives, Helen Evangeline Ball became the bride of Arley R. Libby Thursday afternoon at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Clifford A. Ball. Rev. William Wallace Youngson, district superintendent of Methodist Episcopal Churches, officiated.

The bride, clad in a ruffled silk net gown of her own design, made a dainty picture. She carried a shower bouquet of bride and Cecil Brunner roses.

Miss Mildred Fenimore sang “At Dawning” and “O Promise Me.” The Lohengrin march was played by Miss Alice Gholke, who also played Mendelssohn’s “Wedding March” during the ceremony.

The rooms were artistically decorated with roses, English ivy and garden flowers. The Misses Bessie Davidson, Sophie Henderson, Doris and Mary Alice Ball assisted about the rooms.

Mr. and Mrs. Libby both graduated from the State Normal at Monmouth last June. The bride has just completed a successful teaching year in Wasco County. Mr. Libby, son of Mr. and Mrs. A. C Libby, of Jefferson, is accountant with the American Can Manufacturing Company.

After a brief wedding trip the young couple will make their home in this city.
