From far away Alaska comes the news of the wedding of a former popular Humbird (Clark Co., Wis.) young lady, Miss Laurel Hart, daughter of Mrs. Ralph Andrews, now of Seward, Alaska, and the late Ben Hart of this village.


The wedding took place at Cordova on Oct. 6th, 1945, and the news of the happy event was kept a secret from all relatives and friends until a week ago.


The groom is Samuel Ragona, a member of the coast guard, who has been with the naval service at Seward since the troops were sent to that territory.  His home is in San Francisco.


The wedding party took a plane from Seward to Cordova, where the ceremony was performed by Commissioner Marvin Roark.


The bride was prettily dressed in a two piece silk jersey gown.  Her bridesmaid was Miss Mildred Kirk, an English instructor in the high school and a close friend of the bride.

Following the ceremony a wedding dinner was served at Cordova and then the return trip was made to Seward.
