.Li^t week Alvin Fergpson re
ported to the News that a double
wedding had taken place at the
Free Methodist parsonage Sun
day December 3. That the con
tracting parties were Rufus Fer

Alvfh Ferguson and Mi9s Rosella
Magee and that Rev. Long of
Portland performed the cere
mony. Since then we have learn
ed that the statement was untrue
as only Rufus Ferguson and Miss
Ruby Magee were married. Just
why he should give such a report
we are at a loss to know. It
places the young lady in a very
unenviable position and certainly
was a very lame attempt to joke.
While we do not feel that we are
in any way to blame for this un
fortunate occurrence, we are in
deed very sorry that it was made.
