Delayed Marriage Notice
Married, September 27, 1920, at Decatur, Ill., Miss Pauline Lamphier to Henry Hettinger. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Loyal Lamphier, and is a young lady who has a large circle of friends. For a long time she was the rural carrier on route three out of Lowell. While the notice of her marriage is a little late, her many friends will join us in extending congratulations and best wishes. They will make their home in Whiting, where Mr. Hettinger has a position with the Standard Oil Co.
