Algona Municipal Utilities "LIVE BETTER ELECTRICALLY" IN ANOTHER PART OF THIS week's Algona Upper Des Moines, there is a wedding story which says Gwen Egel became the bride of James Kildow. It sounds like a lovely ceremony, and it was — eventually. But until the time the couple said their vows, just about every- lliing that can go amiss at a wedding ceremony did go amiss. In fact, to anyone who got in on the behind scenes havoc, the thought that the affair went smoothly at all is nothing but a minor miracle 1 « * + ORIGINALLY. GWEN AND JIM HAD planned to be married in March and they started arrangements very early so everything would »o well. When they were in Algona during the holidays, they applied 'or the permit so that the three-day waiting period wouldn't give them any trouble when they arrived from Kansas, City just before the planned March date. But something happened to make them change their plans, so they notified the home folks they would be married Jan. 29. . Vi * * , * . THE FIRST INDICATION THAT THE event might turn into a comedy of errors came at the rehearsal Saturday night. There was a mix-up on the time and the bridal party was about an hour late. Then, on Monday things really started popping. The bridegroom thought he would iave plently of time to get a haircut and the bride was going to contact he photographers. Both,establishments are closed Mondays. Finally, Soup Briggs and Nels Isaacson were rounded up and they graciously obliged on their day off. * * * IT WAS TO BE A DOUBLE RING ceremony according to original ' ilans. The couple had arranged with a Kansas City jeweler to make ;hem a matching set. When the plans were advanced, they found the rings not ready so the bride's mother loaned a family ring. It would iave to be a single-ring ceremony and the bridegroom could get his jand later. * # * AT THE FINAL COUNSELING SESSION the minister, Rev. Myron Brower, asked the couple for their license. It was taken care of, they assurred him, all excepting for the blood test and Dr. Bourne was landling that. However, they found that a permit is not the same as license and a quick check with the doctor revealed that the test must lave*'been lost somewhere between Algona and the laboratory at Iowa City: Rev. Brower told the couple that he absolutely could not perform, the ceremony without the completed license. It was already late afternoon. What to do now-was indeed a question. * * * . FATHER OF THE BRIDE, ERNIE EGEL came to the rescue. A laboratory at Mason City could take care of the blood test and clerk of court, Alma Pearson would stand by to issue the license. The highway patrol,was asked for an escort in case Ernie would fly his car too low on itie way to Mason City, but although the patrol said they would like itp'bjB of assistance, they .could resort to'such tactics only* In case of llfeW death. A) .wedding, does not come under this category. ' - '.,"•. -,#.'.. *:-..• * .'• . , • • ..,••:.. .• MEANWHILE, THE PROSPECTIVE .bridegroom "was iryln^'tb "be helpful by delivering some flowers for the reception to the church. They were" in a much-prized milk glass bowl. In the process, the bridegroom slipped and fell flat on his face. The bowl bounced nicely and the only Inmage was to his dignity. * * # THE CEREMONY WAS, SET FOR seven o'clock and it was a little after that the mission to Mason City arrived back in Algona. Mrs. Pearson had waited until after seven to issue the license. Only two summonses from the law were issued as a result of the trip — one for the father 1 ; of the bride, for failing to dim his lights properly, and one to Cliff Carlson of Wesley for speeding. He was rushing to the ceremony to take slide pictures. * * * THE GUESTS WERE ASSEMBLING in the sanctuary when Rev. Brower went into the study to see if the ceremony could start within a few minutes. There he found best man Phil Egel comforting his sister, the bride, who was nearly in tears. The minister thought it was natural jitters from all the confusion, but Gwen wailed, "I dropped my gown in the mud !" Rev. Brower did what most husbands do in an emergency — he called for his wife, Thelma, * * * MRS. BROWER TOOK THE, BRIDE and the gown to the church kitchen and with the help of Edna Skow and Dottie Martin attempted to sponge the mud from the top of the dress. They borrowed some lemon juice, slated for the punch, from the refrigerator, but it failed to bleach the stains. They were about to try scouring powder, when they discovered the dress top was washable lace, so they filled the sink with suds and plunged the whole top in. The spots came out, an iron was hurriedly borrowed, and mother-of-the-bride," Vivian, sewed her daughter into her finery. * * * IT WAS A LOVELY, THOUGH SLIGHTLY damp bride; who walked down the aisle on the arm of her father only an hour or so later than the scheduled time. But the misadventures were not quite over.yet. Half-way down the bride murmured, "Oh, Daddy ! I forgot my-bouquet !" "You can't go back after it now", her father answered firmly. * * * FLORIST TUNNEY HUENHOLD was in the congregation and he nearly died. He thought the absence of the bouquet was due to his om- mission in filling the flower order. The bride, upon reaching the altar, whispered to the minister, "I don't have my bouquet." Rev. Brower, who by this time was somewhat unnerved himself, whispered back, "You don't need it." * * * "WILL YOU HAVE THIS MAN to be your lawful wedded husband ? — to love and to cherish from this day forward — as long as you both shall live —". The age-old ceremony was as meaningful and lovely as if the preceeding events had gone like clockwork. The reception, too, went very well. But the following day, if you had been down at the bride's parents, you might have heard Mrs. Egel say to the brides' much-younger sister, "By golly, Becky, when it gets time for you to be married, I hope you elope !'" * * V tN CASE YOUR SUPPLY OF JAM from last summer is running a bit low, you might try this week's recipe for thrifty orange marmalade. I got it from some leaflets Mary Ann brought home from her homemaking class in high school. 4 cups prepared fruit (4 oranges and 2 lemons) 6V 2 cups (2% cups sugar) 1 box, commercial pectin. ••Cut skins from 4 large oranges and 2 medium lemons in quarters, lay flat. Shave off, and discard about half of the white part. Slice, chop, or grind rind very fine. Add 2Vi cups water and 1/8 teasp. soda. Bring to a boil and simmer, covered, 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Chop peeled fruit; add to cooked rind. Simmer covered, 10 minutes longer. Measure 4 cups into a large saucepan. Measure sugar and set aside. Add pectin to fruit in saucepan; mix well. Stir over high heat until mixture boils hard. Cook gently 1 minute. At once stir in sugar. Bring to a full rolling boil and boil hard 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; skim off foam. Then stir and skim by turns for 7 minutes. Ladle quickly into glasses. Cover at once with 1/8 inch hot parrafin. Makes about 10 medium glasses (5 Ibs.) marmalade. — GRACE.
