Smith, Shirley (Marriage -5 April 1952)

April 5 has been announced as the wedding date of Miss Shirley Smith, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Smith, formerly of Neillsville and now of Milwaukee, and Robert Ebert. In a previous issue of the The Press, Robert Ebert was confused with a local Ebert. The two men have the same names, the same parental names, and work in the same plant in Milwaukee, almost side-by-side.
