Couple Married In Pretty Ceremony At Methodist Church

Miss Ruth Olive Haizlip, only daughter of Mr, and Mrs. P. T. Haizlip, Hamilton Street, became the bride of Staff, Sgt. Wilford B. Caffey, of Rockwell, Texas, Friday morning, at 9 o'clock at the First Methodist .church in a service impressive in simplicity and reverence.

The bride's pastor, Rev. J. Elwood Carroll, heard the vows in the presence of immediate members of the families and intimate friends.

A program of wedding music was rendered by Mrs. Lawrence Wilson, organist, and Miss Iva Campbell, vocal soloist. The ushers were Billy Goldston and Joe Chandler, who also lighted the candles. The couple entered unattended to the strains of the traditional wedding march.

The bride wore her travel suit, a tailored model of light blue, with navy accessories. At her shoulder was a corsage of white rosebuds. She carried a white Rainbow Bible showered with lilies of the valley.

The altar was banked with ferns as background for floor baskets of Queen Ann's lace and hydrangea and trailing ivy and flanked by seven-branched standards with gleaming white candles.

Mrs. Caffey graduated at Leaksville High School and continued her education at Woman's College of the University of North Carolina. Staff Sgt. Caffey is the eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. E. T. Caffey, of Rockdale. Texas. He was educated at Rockdale and Houston, Texas. He is now stationed at Pope Field, Fort Bragg, N. C. The couple left immediately after the ceremony for a wedding trip. They will make their home for the present at 113 McNair Loop, Fayetteville, N. C.
