The home of Mrs. Agnes Schutt was the scene of a very pretty wedding Friday evening at 8 o'clock when her daughter, Helen, became the bride of Howard La Due, son of Mr. and Mrs. Lewis E. La Due. The ceremoney was performed in a setting of ivy and ferns arranged in the livingroom of the Schutt home. Rev. R. M. Furnish of the Rock Falls Methodist Church read the single ring service that united the lives of the young couple. Attendants were Miss Fern Freeman and Burdette Miller. Miss Virginia Schutt played the piano during the ceremony.

The bride wore a gown of aqua crepe and carried Johanna Hill roses. Miss Freeman was dressed in sunset crepe and wore a corsage of Talisman roses.

Mrs. La Due graduated from Rock Falls high school and attended the Scovill Business School in Sterling. Mr. La Due is a highly respected young man of this community and at the present time is employed at the Northwestern Barb Wire Co., in Sterling.

Following the ceremony, Mr. and Mrs. La Due went to Chillicothe, where they visited the groom's uncle and aunt, Dr. S. B. La Due, and upon their return will make their home in an apartment with the bride's mother they have furnished at 215 - 4th Avenue., Rock Falls. Their many friends wish them much happiness in their life together
