Drainie, India L. (27 NOV 1917)

Louis Samsen Davis, the second youngest son of Fred Davis, sprung a genuine surprise on his many relatives and friends here when he advised them, on Thanksgiving Day, to the effect that he was a married man, and that within a week he would be here accompanied by his bride. Louis was married at St. Joseph, Mo., Nov. 27th, 1917. His bride is a Miss India Layton Drainie of that place. She had for some time past held the position of Assistant Mgr. of the circulation and advertising department of the St. Joseph, Mo. News-Press, and it was while at Ft. Leavenworth, Kan., where for the past 3 months Louis has been in the Civil Engineering Officers Reserve Corps Training Camp. Louis met her and their acquaintance ripened into love. He secured a 10 to 18 day furlough with the closing of the training camp on November 27th, and was married that evening. Then after a brief visit among her relatives at St. Joseph, this happily weed pair set out for Wisconsin, stopping only for a short visit at Madison before arriving here on Tuesday. A large reception, although limited to relatives only, was held for them at his sister, Mrs. John Pietenpol's home, Tuesday evening.

Louis is a successful young civil engineer, graduated from the Wis. State University a few years ago, since which time he has been engaged in his chosen profession in Montana and made good. He is a Captain in the Railway Officers Reserve Corps since his enlistment in the services late last summer. A young man who has thus far succeeded in all his undertakings. His bride is a young woman, prepossessing in many ways, handsome, educated and of charming manners, who makes friends of all with whom she comes in contact. May success and happiness always be theirs, is the wish of the News.
