Seneca Girls' Team Lost to WMttemore. Seneca, December 15. Special: Last Tuesday night Whittemore girls gave the Seneca girls their first defeat in a scheduled basket ball game in two years by defeating them 19 to 14 on the Seneca floor. Beside the Whittemore team, the Seneca girls looked like pigmies and though their team work was for the most part good, the size of the opponents was too much for them. If Iowa ever produced a team of bigger girls on one team than that of Whittemore we'd like to sea them. Not. onJy were they big, but they played good ball and we congratulate them and will try and beat them next time. The boys' game was fast and furious until the final whistle which found Seneca leading 21 to 19. 8. Knnt- scn was oificial for both games. 'needs * of South America and the Rev.

The double ring ceremony was performed by Rev. R. W. Kabelitz. Edmund Wittus, church organist, playing the wedding march. Miss Linda Dau, of Whit'.emore, a cousin of the bride, acted as bridesmaid and Frank Dreyer, brother of th'i bride, attended the groom. Little Marion Henpel and Elaine Swan were the flower girls. The bride was attired in a gown of white silk lace over white silk crepe and carried a bouquet of pink roses, white baby chrysanthemums and gypsophelia. The brides- maid wore a gown of orchid silk flat crepe and carried a bouquet of pink and white flowers. Immediately following the cermony about fifty relatives and friends were invited to the home of the bride's brother, Everett Dreyer, where they enjoyed a six o'clock wedding dinner. The bride is the youngest daughter of Mrs. Minnie Dreyer of this place. Mr. Schmidt is the son of Mr. and Mrs. August Schmidt who were old j residents of the Lone Rock neighborhood, and who retired to Algona this fall. Both bride and groom were born and reared in this community and have many friends here who wish them a happy future. The wedding was not complete without a charivari and in the evening a large crowd gathered and judging from the noise, which shook some of the houses up town, it was a regular one. The young couple left for various points in South Dakota and southern Iowa for a honeymoon trip. Besides visiting relatives they intend to visit the Gurney broadcasting station in Yankton, South Da- okta, and Earl May and Henry Field stations at Shenandoah. They expect to be gone a week or more after which they will go to housekeeping on the farm of the groom's parents.
