HOSTS AT DINNER
Miss Bertel Plaut and Miss Leah
Sobel of Oklahoma City, were din-
ner guests Sunday evening of Mr.
and Mrs. Alfred Plaut and daugh-
ter, Lenore and son, Harvey, 1113
Mr. and Mrs. O. K. Curry, 704
South Macomb were guests Satur-
day in the home of Mr. and Mrs.
Paul Loy in Shawnee.
Mrs. Harris said brides seem the
calmest of all on the big day; may-
be because their big problem,
catching a man, lias been solved.
She would rate bridegrooms next
to fathers in nervousness. One
bridegroom in particular she never
“I noticed he was pretty shaky
beforehand,” she said. "And he
swayed a little as he walked to the
altar. But the ceremony went off
smoothly. The bridegroom made
all the proper responses, slipped
the ring on the bride’s finger, kiss-
ed her—and fainted.”
Mrs. Harris said such occasions
fortunately are rare, that most
weddings do go off smoothly, or at
worst with such “minor” mishaps
as a lost bridal gown.
Mrs. Harris, an attractive bru-
nette, was herself a victim of for-
getfulness when she was a bride.
Her wedding was scheduled for
the Waldorf-Astoria hotel, and
when she was ready to dress, the
bridal gown was nowhere to be
“Whoever was in charge of it,
had forgotten to bring it over from
the apartment,” she said. “We sent
a maid home to get the gown, and
the cab broke down on the way.
By the time my dress arrived, I
was ready to go to the altar in slip
and bridal veil.”
Mrs. Harris joined her husband
in business during World war II.
“Somebody had to run the shop
while he was in the service,” she
said. “I came in to help . . . and
here I am.”
She and her husband say they’ve
noticed many changes since the
studio was opened 20 years ago.
“Mothers of the brides are pret-
tier and younger-looking now,” she
said. “Some of them you’d mis-
take for the bride.”
Couples arc marrying at a young-
“But what worries me,” said
Mrs. Harris, “is the attitude some
of them have. They approach mar-
riage with the idea, ‘Well, if this
one doesn’t work out, we can al-
ways get a divorce.’ ”
Matter of fact, the Harris stu-
dio has had several return cus-

married again, and asked how

He’s like any normal husband with a new Chrysler

"borrow" it than any other car!
It seems that once a wife or husband gets to know
the ease and control of Chrysler’s Full-time Power
steering, any semi-power steering feels clumsy and
heavy-handed. They both prefer Chrysler's smoother-
acting Power Brakes ... and the alive feeling of
unlimited power in Chrysler’s great new V8 engines!
They like the utter smoothness and silence of
PowerFlite Automatic Drive ... and most of all
they enjoy being seen and admired in America's most

Now two Chryslers would really keep a family like
this happy. Nevertheless, they’d be the first to tell
