WEDDING VOWS IN BATHING SUITS

There was quite a unique wedding on the Miller dock at Midas Sunday. Miss Opal Miller was made the wife of Sidney V. Rollins of Washington, D.C. by Justice of the Peace Mryvin Davis of Sandpoint. The bride, groom and their attendants were costumed in bathing suits of the one-piece variety. The bride, in a Persian silk suit with a helmet-shaped bath cap tied under her chin but allowing her luxuriant curling hair to form a frame for her piquant brunette beauty, was certainly a picture long to be remembered. The many pleasure seekers spending the weekend at Garfield Bay thronged the docks and showered congratulations and rice over the happy pair who, thus suitably attired, started on the good ship Matrimony for the Port of Happiness.
