June Bride-to-Be WHEN" WE SAY "mid-June," referring to Ann Whitehead's wedding date, we mean just that, because she has set June 15 as the day for her marriage to Woodruff Boyd Crouse.

Mrs. James Frazer Whitehead, Jr., will be the matron of honor and the maid of honor will be Sarah Booth Whitehead. Woody's attendants will be announced later.
