    Miss Henrietta Ferguson, daughter of Mrs. Ethelyn Ferguson, of Alma, became the bride of Lieut. Russell Minnis in a double ring ceremony read by the Rev. B.A. Rogers at 3:30 p.m. Easter Sunday at the First Methodist Church in Manhattan.

    The bridegroom is the son of Mr. J.R. Minnie of Manhattan.

    As the guests arrived Mr. Charles Stratton, organist, played the wedding music and accompanied Miss Wilma Kathryn Price, who sang, "Until" and "I Love You Truly"; Mrs. Irene Campbell played "Liebestraum" and "One Alone" on the violin. Miss Winifred Emert and Miss Kathleen Emert lighted the tapers and wore pastel gowns of yellow and pink.

    The bride was given in marriage by her uncle, Mr. Morris Bond. Her gown of gardenia satin was fashioned with a fitted bodice of satin and lace, and a flared skirt that lengthened into a train. Her full-length veil of tulle fell from a halo of orange blossoms and she carried a shower bouquet of Tallisman roses and white sweet peas. Miss Blanche Burris, her only attendant, wore a gown of powder-blue chiffon and carried a bouquet of pink carnations.

    Dr. F.H. Oberst of Manhattan, was best man. Mr. Kent Pearl and Mr. Evan Crumbaker were ushers.

    A reception for close friends and relatives at the Methodist Temple followed the ceremony. After a short honeymoon the bride will return to Alma, where she is a member of the teaching faculty at the high school.

    Lieutenant Minnis will return to Chicago where he is a First Lieutenant in the Veterinary Corps. Both Lieut. Minnis and Mrs. Minnis are graduates of Kansas State College, Mrs. Minnis receiving her degree in Home Economics, and Lieut. Minnis, his doctor's degree in Veterinary Medicine.

    Mr. and Mrs. J.C. Campbell of Rossville, Miss Maggie Jeffrey and Miss Kathleen Emert of Manhattan assisted at the reception.

    Guests from Rossville included: Mr. and Mrs. C.L. Emert, Mr. and Mrs. J.C. Campbell, Mrs. Edna Campbell, Kansas City, Mo.; Mr. and Mrs. John L. Pearl, Mr. Morris Bond, Miss Lorena Foreman, Miss Bernice Herron, Miss Joan Emert, Mrs. Winifred Stach, Mr. Kent Pearl.
