Wedding Bells Rang Out at St. John's Lutheran church at 7 o'clock,
Sunday evening, February 27, for Dale Eltiste and Opal Torbeck, who

were united in marriage before the same altar where their

baptismal and confirmation vows were said. The pastor, the

Rev. G. K. Wiencke, read the lines of the impressive service, using the

double ring ceremony. The bride was dressed in a two-piece suit of

powder blue crepe trimmed in appliqué embroidery and wore a

lovely corsage of sweet peas, and the groom wore a dark suit and

white boutonnière. Alice Torbeck was bridesmaid and wore

afternoon frock of brown crepe trimmed in chiffon. The best man,

W. Kenton Eltiste wore a brown suit.

Using the Psalm verse "The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places,

yea, I have a goodly heritage." the pastor spoke of the joy of this

their wedding day, and of the Christian hope of eternal heritage as an

anchor for their future life together. Present for the ceremony were

the immediate families of the bridal pair. The music for the occasion

"Bridal Chorus" from Wagner's Lohengrin

and the choral "Jesus Still Lead On."

After the ceremony a bounteous wedding supper was served

at the bride's home by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Torbeck.

The table was set with white embroidered cloth and decorated with

tapers in tall crystal candelabra. A large bouquet of pink and white

sweet peas formed the centerpiece.

Guests were: Mr. and Mrs. H. A. Eltiste, Mr. and Mrs. W. Kenton Eltiste

and Ronald Gene, and Rev. and Mrs. G. K. Wiencke.

 Mr. and Mrs. Dale Eltiste are receiving the hearty congratulations

of a host of friends. The bride has been reared in our community and is

one of our most accomplished young women. She has always been

most generous of her talents, especially in music, for the pleasure

and good of all. The groom is a progressive farmer, having come to

this community from Overton, and has made his home while here,

with Mr. and Mrs. Harry Eltiste.

The newly married couple will make their home on the

groom's farm near Vesta.

Our sincere good wishes are expressed for their

happiness and prosperity.
