"SOME GAVE ALL"
MISS RUTH PLATZEK, JACK MOSELEY WED IN CHURCH CEREMONY
Ruth Platzek of Myers street and Jack Moseley, son of Mr. and Mrs.
A. R. Moseley of Thermalito, were married in the First Methodist
Church last Saturday evening. The bride was attired in a white wool
crepe dress with white accessories and wore an orchid corsage. Her
jewelry was a pearl necklace. The Matron of honor was her sister
Mrs. Maybelle Shelton of Chico, who chose a blue wool dress for
the ceremony. Her corsage was of pink camellias. Best man at the
ceremony was the bridegroom's brother, Dick. The Rev. Mr. Ellis
E. Peterson performed the double-ring ceremony. Organist was Peter
Gibson. The couple are honeymooning in San Francisco this week.
Both are graduates of Oroville Union High School. Since her graduation,
the bride has been attending Chico State. Moseley, who will join
the Army soon, has been doing graduate work at the California School
of Fine Arts.
RICHVALE SAILOR SERVING IN PACIFIC
Ronald Lindahl, 19 of Richvale is now on duty in the Pacific
as a member of Uncle Sam's navy. Lindahl, a graduate of Biggs high
school, enlisted July 28, with Danny Owens, 18 of Oroville.
The youths trained together at San Diego naval training station,
but after completion of boot camp their paths separated. Owens went
to Guam, and his buddy was assigned to duty aboard ship "somewhere
in the Pacific."
NAVY MEN RECEIVING TRAINING AT SAN DIEGO
Two Oroville men are now in training at the San Diego Naval Base
following their enlistment in the Navy through the recruiting center
in Chico. They are: Leo Franklin McInturf of Route 5, son
of Mr. and Mrs. Leander McInturf. He attended Yuba Collage last
year and is a metal smith by trade. His enlistment was for four
years. Paul Martin Ryan of Woodleaf Star Route, son of Mr.
and Mrs. Raymond Ryan. His enlistment was also for four years. Both
will be assigned to a Navy trade school, ship or station after they
complete boot training.
WWII MARINE SAYS, SALMON FISHING SEASON ENDED OCT. 15.
Salmon fishing in the Feather River ended Saturday, Chester Ramsey,
state game warden announced today. The law provides that fishing
for salmon is illegal after Oct. 15, in "spawning areas." These
include the Feather River from Marysville to Las Plumas on the North
Fork and to Forbestown on the South Fork, Ramsey explained. (Stu
says it's hard to believe the salmon went so far.)
Stu's notes: As we know Jack Moseley was killed in Korea. I wrote
about him some time back. As for Ruth Platzek, could she be related
to Norma Mae Platzek, the little girl that died in a fire July 1946
at Safford Street and Marysville Road? Since then the Platzek family
has donated that land to Feather River Recreation and Parks.
That is where the new Bike and Skate park is currently being built,
thanks to Vene Thompson and many others. There is a plaque at the
site in memory of the little girl who died so long ago.
