Mr. Harry Zimmerman and Miss Ruth Free were quietly married Monday evening, Jan. 1, 1923, at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Free on Court Street, Rev. Walter Trench Scott officiating. They were attended by the bride’s brother Thomas Free and Miss Viola Schultz. Only the parents of the bridal couple and a few other relatives were present. The bride wore a beautiful dress of cream colored lace over yellow silk taffeta, trimmed in pearl and gold. The Christmas decorations of the home had been left intact, giving the rooms a fitting holiday atmosphere. The groom is the youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. J. G. Zimmerman. He has grown to manhood here, graduated from the high school and last year completed a course in Commerce In the State University. He had from time to time worked in the Zimmerman store, and thus became quite widely acquainted with people in and about the city. His ability as a student, his gentlemanly and courteous manner made him a favorite in school and college and won the respect of all who know him otherwise. He will continue to take an active part in the work in the store where his education and training will be of signal service to the public.
