Pretty Wedding at

County Residence

The marriage of Miss Mildred L. Bohlken, daughter of

Mr. and Mrs. H. C. Bohlken, near Auburn, and

Herman A. Eltiste Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. H. A. Eltiste Sr., of

near Johnson, was solemnized at four-thirty o'clock last

Thursday afternoon, July 31, at the bride's home.

Rev. G. K. Wiencke, pastor of St. John's Lutheran church,

performed the double ring ceremony before an improvised altar

decorated with gladiola and fern.

Only members of the immediate families were in attendance.

Special piano numbers were played by Mr. G. K. Wiencke.

The bride wore a street length dress of navy blue crepe trimmed

in white starched chiffon and her accessories were white. She

also wore a gold necklace of her mother's and carried a

bouquet of white lilies tied with white tulle. The groom was dressed

in a dark business suit and wore a gardenia boutonnière.

Following the ceremony a three course dinner was served by

Mrs. Floyd Bohlken, Mrs. Kenton Eltiste, Ora Torbeck and Miss

Avis Bohlken. A color scheme of pink and white was carried out

in the table appointments and the centerpiece was a tiered

wedding cake topped with a miniature bride and groom.

Pink and white tapers also added to the table setting.

During the dinner the newlyweds received a telegram,

extending congratulations, from the groom's brother, Kiel Eltiste,

who is at Camp Robinson, Little Rock, Arkansas.

Mrs. Eltiste is a graduate of Auburn high school, class of 1938,

and attended Peru State Teachers college, where she was

a member of Gamma Chi. For the past two years she has been

teaching at the Prairie Hill school.

Mr. Eltiste graduated from the Johnson high school in 1938 and

since that time has assisted his father in farming.

The young couple left on a trip through the Ozarks, and will

visit Mr. Eltiste's brother, Kiel, at Camp Robinson, en-route home.
