Mr. and Mrs. Edwin C. Evanson this week announce the marriage of their daughter, Agnes E. M., to Arne H. Matheson, Jr., of Neillsville, Wis. The marriage took place at Glencoe, Minn., April 30, 1937, at 2 o’clock p.m. at the residence of Rev. H. Streufert, the double ring ceremony being used. Ena Fladmark, Pelican Rapids, Minn., a friend of the family, and E. Stanley Evanson of Glencoe, a brother of the bride attended the couple.

The bride was charmingly attired in an ankle-length, white lace dress, princess style, coat effect, over white silk taffeta and carried a huge bouquet of pink tea roses. The bridesmaid wore a pale blue lace gown with gray accessories and carried carnations and sweet peas. Mrs. Matheson was graduated from the Greenwood High School in 1930, coming to Neillsville with her family 6 years ago. For the past four years she has been employed as cashier in the Schultz Bros.
