I3TH. WHITE HOUSE
EVENT, OFFICIALLY BRILLIANT
HAD A DISTINCT TOUCH

BRIDE AND GROOM
Both Have Dedicated Their Lives to
By Associated Press.
Washington, Nov. 25.—Simplicity
with dignify—the same ideal which
President "Wilson has cherished for
hisJ administration since its inaugu-
ration—was the predominant note
in the arrangements for the marri-
age late today of Jessie 'Woodrow
Wilson, second daughter of Presi-
dent and Mrs. Wilson, and Francis
During the 113 years that have
elapsed since the white house was
built, twelve weddings have taken
place there and it falls to the lot
of Miss Wilson to be the thirteenth,
a coincidence all the more remark-
able because the president often has
told his friends that the number
thirteen has run through his life
as a harbinger of good luck. Curi-
ously enough the bridal party and
minister number just thirteen.
The ceremony was solemnized in
the historic East Room, majestically
decorated in masses of flowers for
the occasion, at 4:30 o'clock this af-
Indian summer ushered in the
Carriages early began rolling up
to the white house, though the in-
terior of the white house was quiet.
Many wedding guests went early
to the executive office to pay their
respects to the president, whose
business engagement of the day was
a cabinet meeting.
A luncheon for the bridal party
by Associate Justice Lamar of the
supreme court, and Mrs. Lamar was
the last prenuptial function.
Notwithstanding its official bril
liancy, there was a distinct touch
of homeliness in the day's affair
The Rev. Sylvester W. Beach, pas-
tor of the First Presbyterian church
at Princeton, N. J., where the Wil
son family worshipped for a score
of years, had been selected as the
officiating clergyman. The maid of
honor was the eldest daughter of
the president, Miss Margaret Wilson.
The best man was Dr. Wilfred T.
Grenfell, with whom Sayre spent
many months ministering to the
sick and needy on the rock-bound
The bride and groom—both blonde
and of about the same height, she,
known * as the white house beauty
because of her classic Grecian fea-
tures, and he, a tall, lithe young
man athletic in appearance with
sharp features and a fair complexion
—were busily occupied during the
fore part of the day mingling in the
bridal party, their relatives and
house guests to whom alone the
white house was accessible before
the wedding hour.
The two young people who have
lived the hardships of the poverty
settlements in big cities and who
have inquired into life's social and
economic problems first hand, would
have preferred a quiet wedding, lim-
ited to the family circle and close
friends—such as it might have been
had not the parents of the bride
been elevated to the foremost social
position in the gift of the nation.
Reluctantly was it made an official
affair. The diplomatic corps, it
was realized, had never been omitted
on any important social occasion at
the white house, nor had the mem-
bers of the cabinet and the supreme
court. To Washington society to-
day's was the supreme event of the
■eason, yet the guests were hardly
drawn from official life but from
the vast circle of friends of the
two families throughout the land.
There were but four hundred In-
vitation Issued—600 less than at the
Roosevelt wedding seven years ago—
but the Wilsons are newcomers In
Washington, whereas the Roosevelt
administration was then five years
old and officials and their wives
bad had a greater opportunity to

Washington, Nov. 25. — Similar
tastes, a devotion to the same ideals,
and a desire to dedicate their lives
to work of Christian usefulness and
social service is the characteristic
quality of Miss Jessie Woodrow

A fondness for outdoor sports,
desire to spend more time in the
work of social welfare and service
rather than in the comforts of the
drawing room, and an ambition to
live simply and quietly and without
ostentation, have developed a mu-
tuality of interest in the young
couple aside from their congeniality
of disposition. They have known
each other about two and a half
years, during which time the two
families have become intimate as

Carranza's Troops Shooting Federal Officer in the Back
This photograph was taken at
Juarez during the capture of that
city by the troops of Carranza
for the control of Mexico. It was
taken about the time Carranza
made his statement that he would
not permit looting nor extreme
cruelty by his troops.
An officer of Huerta's small army,
some 140 men, in Juarez, was
driven out In the aarly morning by
2,000 Constitutionalists. Some of-
ficers escaped across the bridge to
El Paso. Others were captuerd and
at once shot The officer shown
here was shot and was prone on
the ground wounded. An officer of
one of Carranza's companies delib-
erately drew his pistol and fired
another Bhot into the wounded
nan's back, killing him.

ZAPATA, THE DREADED
OUTLAW OF MEXICO
Zapata Is the man feared next
to Huerta In Mexico. He is the
leader of the strongest band of
outlaws in the country and is pow-
erful enough to march on the City
of Mexico were troops withdrawn
from the capital long enough to
give him a chance. He has been
within thirty miles of the city.
When Huerta forced a loan of
$9,000,000 from the Mexico City
tankers this year one of his pleas
was that if he did not get the
money for the maintenance of his
army Zapata would march In and
loot the banks. That was sufficient
to frighten the capitalists Into com-
