Wegner, Helen (2 JUL 1924)

Mr. Arthur J. Haugen and Miss Helen Wegner were united in marriage at Winona July 2, 1924, Hon. Robert E. Looby, Judge of the Probate Court, officiating.

The groom is one of the best known men of this locality (Neillsville, Clark County, Wis.). He was born and brought up here, graduated from Neillsville High School, and has spent most of his life here. At a very early age he took great interest in military affairs, and has been continuously connected with the local military company since 1900. He went out with the old Co. A. to the Border service in the summer of 1916, and again when the World War called for military services in April 1917. He went out as a sergeant and was promoted during the war to First Lieutenant. He saw strenuous service overseas, remaining in the army till June 1919. In 1920 he was appointed to a position in the Neillsville Post Office, where his efficiency, promptness and courtesy have made him deservedly popular with the public. He is a man of clean cut practical ideas, one who can speak forcibly and intelligently in public, and has a genuine interest in the affairs of the community and the nation.

The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Wegner of Pine Valley, Clark County, where she grew to womanhood at their farm home. She had a position in the office of Dr. Brooks for some time, but owing to the frail health of her mother, she resigned this place a few months ago. She is a young lady of a very winning personality and disposition. Her kindness and helpfulness in her home mark her as well fitted for the new duties she has assumed. For the present they will be at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. Haugen driving in each day to his work in the Post Office. He has the old Haugen home in this city, which at some future time they may occupy.

The Press joins with a large group of other friends in wishing them success and happiness.
