Bowyer, Hollywood, writes that in recent Advance mention of the marriage of Melvin Henderson and Leeta Stebbins, both of Pomona, Calif., the bride was referred to as the daughter of Ross Stebbins, "Kalispell, Mont." Mrs. Bowyer thinks this was confusing Ross Stebbins, Pomona, with Ross Robison, Kalispell, formerly Irvington, and she is right, but the erroneous reference occurred in incidental mention subsequent to the original story in the Society column, where it did not appear. . . Mrs. Bowyer adds that Melvin is the only son of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Henderson, Pomona, formerly Algona, and his wife the only daughter of her parents. The bridegroom's wedding trip to New York City was a reward from the Equitable Life Assurance Society for completing a quota as salesman.
