,,'.? It was in the fall of 1950 when I decided to go to the World's Fair in
New York. I planned to ge h '1,f the Northern Route and come home by the Southern.
I left Fort Wnyne on Friday afternoon and reached the city of Toledo in the
evening. Before going to the hotel, I purchased the evening paper from a

Fort Wayne to join his fiancee, Betty george, and was to be married the
following Saturday by the justice of peacef-Richard Geeglein, at his farm
at Haples. I congratulated him.and went on mv Way.
I spent the next evening at Cleveland. I stepped at a hoarding house
and as I was inquiring about rooms, in walked Evelrn Marshall with a pile of
books and papers. She looked at me and spoke and recognized nw as an old
School Chum. So I told the lads I would take the room. Evelyn told me she
was teaching at a large higl school here. Much to my surprise she told me she
had never marriedls She informed iw that Marjorie Bell was in the near city of
Akron, working on the city newspaper. She was editor of the gossip column,
so I thought I would drive over and see her. Evelyn had given me her address,
but on finding her house she was not at home. I learned that she was taking
in d wedding of great importance to get the story for her paper.
So I journeyed on m' way and reached Pittsburgh Monday afternoon. There
I went to the Memorial Hospital where I was greeted by Naxine mblf who was on
the staff as dietician. After visiting she told me thatmDveIyn Osborn was a Y
nurse here also. As Evelyn was on duty I didn't get to see her. I spent the
evening with Maxine end left the next morning for Gettysburg, where I visit-

told me he had married and was-the proud father of the cutest twins.
