MANY SERVICE MEN HAVE NOT BEEN HEARD FROM
The American Legion committee that is sponsoring the honor
roll of all men and women in the armed forces said today
that it is ready to have the names printed but realizes many have
not yet been turned in. Relatives of those in the services should
send the names and other data at once to Albert D’Amico. He wants
the full name, address, rating, and branch of service. Unless relatives
and friends act, the names of their men and women will not appear
as those in the services are not prepared to act for themselves.
SAILOR AND BRIDE OF 17 YEARS AGO HONORED ON THEIR ANNIVERSARY
A colorful party honoring Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Marders on their 17th
wedding anniversary was given at the Wagon Wheel Sunday evening.
Pastel colors were used at the banquet table. Sweet peas and maidenhair
fern formed two large Vs and two large white lighthouse candles
added to the beautiful effect. Small individual place candles in
various colors and designs were also used. The large wedding cake
was decorated in pastel colors and was inscribed with “Happy Anniversary
Glenn and Gladys, 17 years”. As the guests of honor entered the
dining room, they were greeted by a loud speaker. This was the beginning
of a series of surprises for them. In addition to being an anniversary
celebration, the party was also a farewell for Glenn Marders, a
physco - neurotic technician with the rating of pharmacist mate
first class in the U. S. Navy. He has received his orders for service
outside of the Continental United States. A gift of a large flower
bowl and mirror was presented to the bride and groom of seventeen
years ago. Dancing followed the dinner. Mr. and Mrs. M. L. Marders,
parents of Glenn Marders, report they heard many expressions of
pleasure and congratulation from the management and other guests
regarding the beauty of their table. Those present were Mr. and
Mrs. M. L. Marders, Mr. and Mrs. M. L. Marders, Jr., Miss Mona Marders,
Mrs. Verna Kennedy, Mr. and Mrs. Marion Williams, Mrs. Jimmie Baker,
Mr. and Mrs. Glenn B. Marders and Wayne Crabtree.
DAUGHTER BORN TO ENGLISHES
Lt. and Mrs. English are the parents of a baby girl born
this afternoon at Oroville Curran Hospital. English is a press censor
on General Eisenhower’s staff and a recent dispatch from a Reuter’s
correspondent reported the lieutenant had made the remark, just
after crossing the Rhine, that he was more worried about the “coming
event” not giving him a son. Than he was about the German shells
bursting nearby. Mrs. English is the former Miss Betty Cook of Thermalito.
The pair already had a daughter.
Stu notes: Where is the honor roll? I would sure like to see
it. No one seems to know. My friend Howard insists it is somewhere,
well where? I imagine this was the Wagon Wheel on the old Marysville
River Road. Surprise, Lt. English got a daughter, well daughters
are wonderful. I know; I have two. A man called and said he knew
Pfc. Robert Lewis Kendall, K.I.A. Last week’s story. I didn’t get
to talk to him. I hope he calls back.
Two calls on where the Dutch Haven was. It was between the State
Barbershop (my friend Jim Townsend the barber now) and the State
Theater on Myers Street. More to come soon on the Heroism of Maj.
Raymond Leonard. The picture (Carmen wanted a picture of me) was
taken at the Sacramento Airport, Sgt. Deborah J. Shaner returning
