Muckerheide joined in holy matrimony, at nuptial high mass, Mr. Francis Bujalski, son of Mr. and Mrs. H. Bujalski of Stanley, and Miss Alma Hickman, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Hickman of this village (Thorp, Clark Co., Wis.).

The bride was given in marriage at the altar by her father.

Other attendants of the bride and groom were, Miss Edith Bradle of Laona and Francis Lauer of Stanley.

The bride was beautifully attired in a gown of white brocaded satin with train and long veil. She wore a pearl crown and her fan shaped bouquet was of roses and snapdragons.

The bridesmaids and maid of honor wore fuchsia rose chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of mixed flowers.
