COUPLE, REMARRIED AFTER 50 YEARS OF WEDDED LIFE, APPROVE YOUTH
Three hundred persons crowded St. Nicholas R.C.Church yesterday morning
to witness the "marriage" of Mr. and Mrs. William GOEHRINGER, in
commemoration of their fifieth wedding anniversary.
A high mass was celebrated. The celebrant was the Rev. George
GOEHRINGER, rector of the church, son of the couple. The deacons were the
Rev. Rudolph KRAUSE and the Rev. John MULZ.
The "bride and bridegroom" walked slowly up the centre aisle while the
organ played Mendelssohn's wedding march. Behind them was Mrs. Theresa
WINDSCH, who 50 years ago, in the Church of the Annunication, N. 6 and
Havemeyer sts., served as bridesmaid. She was again the bridesmaid.
As soon as the ceremony was over the couple were hugged and kissed by
nearly everyone in the church and then taken to the rectory, adjoining the
church, Devoe and Olive sts., where they were congratulated by a number of
priests from adjoining parishes.
At noon a "wedding dinner" was served in St. Nicholas Catholic Club,
opposite the church. The celebrants were seated in golden charis, and there
they received their guests, about 200 in all. The interior of the clubhouse
was appropriately decorated. The decorations and preparing and serving of the
meal was in the hands of a committee consisting of Mrs. Catherine WOLTER,
Mrs. Mamie VOGEL, Mrs. Madeline ZWICK, Frank WOLTER and Lawrence ROTH.
Following dinner, there was dancing and general merrymaking.
When asked if they had any comment to make on the present style of the
young women, they smiled and said:
"Leave them alone, they are all right." said Mr. GOEHRINGER. "The boys
and girls will have their way. There is an old saying that one might just as
