In a setting of beautiful cut flowers and ferns, Miss Shirley Corinne Poore became the bride of Carl M. Smith of Madison, Wis., son of Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Smith of Unity, in a quiet ceremony at 8:30 o’clock Friday evening, Feb. 18th, at the home of her father, Mr. William E. Poore, 8257 Merril Ave., Chicago, Ill. Rev. G. C. Vogel, pastor of the community Presbyterian church officiated, using the beautiful ring service.

The bride was lovely in an entrained gown of white canton crepe with accessories of white, and white satin sandals. Her flowers were white gardenias and lilies of the valley.

Mrs. Ilif Lynch, sister of the bride, acted as maid of honor, and wore a floor length gown of pale blue crepe romance, and silver slippers. Her corsage consisted of sweet peas and lilies of the valley.

The groom was attended by Wm. Poore, Jr., brother of the bride.
