Wearing the wedding veil worn by her mother 35 years ago, Miss Dorthy Olson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Olson, Colby, exchanged marriage vows with Benedict Fitzel, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ferdinand Wucherpfenning, Colby, at a ceremony perfomed Wednesday afternoon in Zion Lutheran Church at Colby. The Rev.O. A. Hoffman rad the sevices at 4 O'clock. The same wedding veil had been worn by the bride's sister, Mrs. Elmer Schmidt, Marshfield, at her wedding nine years ago.

The bridesmaids, Mrs. Byron Olson and Miss Helen Yost, were attired in net dresses, in aqua and blue, respectively, and wore face veils and headbands to match their frocks. All three wore corsages of pompons.

Mr. Fitzel was attended by Elmer Schmidt, Byron Olson, and Wayne Olson.
