The bride is the former Teresa Larkin, 26, of Dayton, 0., who has been with the "iron lung" boy almost constantly since he was stricken in 1936. Fred Snite, In Iron Lung, Is Married To Pretty Brunette; Off On Honeymoon CHICAGO, -Aug. 11 (IP):— Fred' Snite, Jr., who has lived, in "iron lungs" for three years and four months, married-Thursday a pretty brunette who cheered and comforted him during his valorous struggle to shake off the shackles of infantile paralysis. The unheralded ceremony—-it sui*- prised some relatives and amazed friends the smiling "Boiled Kid" had made on three continents—was performed in the home of Suite's banker father in suburban River Forest. Young Snite and Miss Teressa Larkin, of Dayton, Ohio, were married by the Rev. J. W. Morrison in the large living room in the pres- ence of a small gathering of intimates before a fireplace draped with white and decorated with flowers. Snite lay full-length in the boiler type iron lung which he has slept and rested most of the time since the spring of 1936. The bride stood beside him, clad in a knee- length white chiffon dress. She carried orchids. The groom, observed his twenty- ninth birthday anniversary July 31; the bride is 25. A wedding breakfast was served after the ceremony and the newlyweds then set off on a brief honeymoon in the $15,000 trailer espe- cially constructed to facilitate Snite's travels. The plans called for cruising about neighboring Oak Park and returning home to receive guests in the evening. The young couple had kept its plana pretty much to itself, said the groom's father, commenting: "I guess they're just going for a trailer ride, all right. So far as I know they haven't said anything to anyone about, making a long trip." Young Fred epitomized the day's experiences with the radiant declaration, "I've got a new boss now, and I'm very happy." Snite's long fight against infantile paralysis has been characterized by consummate courage. Stricken in Peiping, China, while on a world tour, he was committed to an artificial respirator April 1, 1936. Science despaired of saving his life. But the patient grinned, displaying a will to live, that astonished physicians. Since then he has travelled more than 25,000 miles in his respirator "prison."
