Miss Alice Mae Alexander, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Alexander, became the bride of Myron Edward Beck, son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Beck, Dorchester, Wednesday morning, Jan. 14, before the nuptial High Mass at St. Bernard’s Catholic church. The Rev. Francis J. Brockman read the double ring ceremony at 9:00 o’clock.

The bride wore a gown of white slipper satin with a long train. The bodice was made with long sleeves and a sweetheart neck line, accented by a pearl necklace. Lace bordered her finger tip and blusher veil. She carried a bouquet of white and red roses.
