Adams, Mr./Mrs. Ardin L. (50th Anniv. - 27 Sept. 1953) 

Mr. and Mrs. A. L. Adams celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with a family dinner at their home Sunday. For the occasion, Mrs. Adams wore a royal blue dress and a corsage of yellow roses and white baby mums. A large wedding cake decorated with gold roses and topped with a golden wedding piece served as a centerpiece at the family table. Yellow roses were used in the home decorations. 

Those of the family here for the Sunday observance were Claude Adams of Wauwatosa, Mr. and Mrs. Roy Peterson and daughter, Carla, of Abbotsford; Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Peterson, and four children of Rockford, Minn., Miss Barbara Peterson of Minneapolis, Minn., Mr. and Mrs. Orson Adams of Hancock, Mr. and Mrs. Lyall Adams of Fond du Lac, and Dr. and Mrs. Robert Plasch and six children, of Minneapolis. In the afternoon, Mr. and Mrs. Swan Peterson and son, Harley, of Owen, joined the group. 

Mr. and Mrs. Adams were married at Hancock Sept. 29, 1903, at the home of her parents. Mrs. Adams was born Cora Hubbard, May 28, 1879, at Hancock. She was employed there as a telephone operator for two years, prior to her marriage.

Their first home was at Deer River, Minn., then Nestoria, Mich., and later Phillips, after which they moved to Abbotsford in 1918, and have lived here since then. Since 1921, they have been living in their present home on highway 13, where Mr. Adams also has his chiropractic office, a profession he has followed since 1919.

Mr. Adams has one brother, Otis, of Woodruff, and a sister, Mrs. Anna Miller, of San Antonio, Tex. Mrs. Adams has four sisters: Mrs. Charles Kent, Mrs. Bertha Coggins, Mrs. Lana Abbot, and Mrs. Fred Meirhofer, all at Hancock. 

On Tuesday afternoon and evening, friends and neighbors called to extend greetings.
