      From "Fulton County Daily Ledger" [?]:

      Miss Mildred Linn and Leonard N. Twomey Wed; to Reside in Monmouth

      Mr. and Mrs. Albert Linn, rural route 1, announce the marriage of their eldest daughter, Miss Mildred Linn, to Leonard N. Twomey of Monmouth, Ill. The couple pledged their nuptial vows in an impressive double ring ceremony solemnized Saturday evening, July 20, at the Hyde Park Methodist church in Chicago, with the Rev. Garfield Dawes officiating.

      To the strains of "The Bridal Chorus" from Wagner?s "Lohengrin," members of the wedding party took their places at the altar, which was beautifully decorated with garden flowers and lighted candelabra.

      Little Miss Alma Lee Linn, sister of the bride, was first in the bridal procession, wearing a ruffled frock of pick organdy. Mrs. Alma Lee Rice, the bride?s aunt, was a charming matron of honor in mavy blue lace.

      Miss Linn chose a lovely bridal costume of French blue chiffon, designed on simple lines, with pink chiffon trim. Her roll brim felt hat was of the same delicate shade of pink, and her shoulder corsage was of tiny rosebuds and orchids.

      Lester Rodgers of Evanston served as best man.

      Mrs. Twomey has many friends in Canton and Monmouth. She was graduated from Canton High School in 1929. Since her graduation, she has been private secretary in the general office of the Bowman Brothers Shoe company, which was transferred to Monmouth from Canton a year or so ago.

      Mr. Twomey was graduated from Monmouth High School. He later attended Monmouth college, where he became affiliated with Phi Kappa Pi fraternity, and received his degree from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor in 1932. He is now assistant actuary in the office of the Illinois Bankers Life Assurance company of Monmouth.

      Upon their return Sept. 5, from an extended trip through the north, Mr. and Mrs. Twomey will be at home in Monmouth.
