Ill Corpus Christi Hall-Hatridge Nuptials Susan Delaine Hall and John Irvin Hatridge exchanged wedding vows Saturday in the Church of the Good Shepherd in Corpus Christi. Parents of the couple, both residents of Galveston, are Mr. and Mrs. Loren O. Hall of Corpus Christi and Mr. and Mrs. 1. C. Hatridge of Corpus Christi. MRS. JOHN IRVIN HATRIDGE The Former Susan Delaine Hall Rental Service Goes To Extreme NEW YORK (NEA) - Bonnie Schachter doesn't audition or screen her chickens. When someone calls her company, Rent-an-Event, and says, I'd like to arrange for a chicken to show up at Harry's party next Friday, she calls a chicken place downtown and orders one. Then the chicken shows up at Harry's party — escorted — walks around the living room a little, and leaves. Harry's friend spent $30 for that which isn't bad for a good laugh and chickens are funny, Ms. Schachter says. Not turkeys, though. "We've done five chickens in the month we've been open. No turkeys." But gorillas — now you're talking funny. She averages seven gorilla calls out of 30 a week. "Men like to surprise their wives with a gorilla in the morning between 8:30 and 10," she says. "The doorbell rings and the gorilla delivers the mail or comes in wearing a hula skirt and says, 'what's for breakfast.' " The gorilla, who costs J150, is one of the 50 or so unemployed actors who prefer this kind of work to temporary typing. "Some have even found their calling with me," Ms. Schachter reports. The people who rent them from her seem to be middle- aged, she says, with a special fondness for gags. "They want to retain some of the kinkiness from their youth. This isn't a cheap service and they're willing to spring for a good joke." The Rev. Charles Dobbins performed the ceremony. Wedding music was provided by Julie Blackard, vocalist, and Harlan Laufman, organist. Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a designer gown of ivory fabric adorned with lace. The gown featured a lace collar and bodice, redingote skirt and cathedral length train trimmed with the lace. Her veil of lettuce-edged net was held by a cap of ivory satin and lace. The veil extended to cathedral length. She carried.a bouquet of ivory roses and stephanotis centered with orchids. Pamela Hall of Bryan was the maid of honor.
