SATURDAY, MARCH 16, 1946 BLYTHEVIT/LE (ARK.)' CbUUIKR NEWS PAGE THREE Plans Wedding In Atlanta Park Pacific Veteran Asks Permit To Wed Where Romance Started ATLANTA, Ga., Mar. 1C. (UP)— fc'.p. Ernest Shafto, of Fnrmlng- ^le, N. J., and lovely Kathleen Jordan of Atlanta, are going to have the "prettiest wedding Atlanta has ever seen.' 1 That's the word of Atlanta mayor William B. Hartsfield. Shafto, Just returned from the Philippines, asked city officials 11 It would be all right for him and Kathleen to be married in Hurt Park here where they first met. Both were In service and stationed at Lawson General Hospital here "Every night when I crawled Into my foxhole," Shafto said, "I would hear two things—the buzzing of mosquitoes and the whine of bullets. But I could see that beautiful fountain in the park. And could see Kathleen, prettier thai ever, standing beside the Iridcs cent, illuminated water. I prayed that I might be spared just to re turn and see that fountain am squeeze Kathleen's hand as I heart her say, 'I do.' " Mayor Hartsfield, n cupld heart, not only gave them permis slon for the ceremony on the night ! of March 21. He immediately pledged to give the bride away and to "see to it that this Is the prettiest wedding ever staged in Atlanta." "We're going to have potted plants all over the place. Thai beautiful green carpet of grass will be combed with a fine-toothed comb, and that beautiful shrubbery trimmed within an Inch of its life," Hartsfield said today. ^ Park officials are already ar- H.mging an altar and a covered trellis. A soloist will sing "O Promise Me," and "Because" those two traditional wedding songs," and Hurtsfield is seeking an organ for the event. Mendelssohn's "Wedding March" will be played as the young couple come down the steps leading from the city auditorium to the fountain. As they file away, Hartsfield has requested, "Here Conies the Bride." And the parks beautifully-lighted fountain with its rainbow effect—lighted only on special occasions—will be flashing Its brightest. For as Hartsfield says. "This is a special occasion. Atlanta's never seen anything like this." T.nvora Society—Personal L, K. Moore of Winona.
