The St. Andrew Episcopal church at Grayslake, Illinois was the setting for a pretty wedding Sunday, June 7, at 4 p.m. when Miss Alice Roder became the bride of Oliver D. Barronof Grayslake. The church was beautifully decorated with baskets of cut flowers and the Episcopal rites were observed. The Rev. Charles of St. Andrews performed the ceremony in the presence of immediate relatives and friends.
