At least it is thought that the bakeries must have something to do \vith'it when two boys, Ray Cook of the Wilson Bakery, and Bill Finn of the' Algona Bakery, entered into "the blissful state of wedded life at about the same hour Saturdays-night. I don't know; who wrote that item 25 years ago but according to my standards, they goofed. The names of the most important parties, •,the brides, were omitted. 'So to* clarify-the item', I'll add Raymond Cook married Kather- .ine "Pat" Cavanaugh and Bill Finn i married Nelda Crawford. * * * And what were the "brides" doing while the men were working in the bakeries? Well, Katherine was just'out of school and unemployed. ,N£lda, a Registered nurse, was .working .for'Nita Isaacson right hte/e'where I am at Good Samaritan which* was then the Kossulh hospital. To the Finns were born Carol and Jimmy. To the Cooks were born Don. Both Couples are parents-in-law, Carol having been married a couple of years ago, and Don was married about a year ago. -Union Aletheans Plan Mother Tea Union Aletheans met April 13.
