A pretty holiday wedding was solemnized here on Friday evening at the Methodist parsonage when the lives of Miss Vergene Renwick, attractive daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Renwick of Sycamore and James Richard Murdock, son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles J. Murdock of Columbus, Ohio, were united in marriage, the impressive ceremony being read by Dr. H. H. Hough. They were attended by Miss Carrie Considine and John Renwick, Jr. the latter a brother of the bride.

The bride was becomingly attired in an orchid suit with which she wore black accessories and a corsage of gardenias. Her only piece of jewelry was a mother of pearl lavaliere, a gift from the groom.

Miss Considine chose an acqua (sic) suit with brown accessories. White carnations comprised her corsage.

Following the nuptial rites, a delectable turkey dinner was served at the home of the bride's aunt, Mrs. Charles Rosene of this city. Places were laid for 19 at a table beautifully decorated in poinsettias and centered with a large tiered wedding cake. After felicitations had been extended the happy young couple departed on a brief honeymoon trip.

The new Mrs. Murdock is a graduate of the DeKalb Township High school and is now employed at the Interstate Aircraft in DeKalb. Her husband is also employed there.

Their many friends are extending best wishes to them for a happy wedded life.1

The bad weather of Sunday evening appears to have been direct cause of two DeKalb county accidents, one of which brought injury to a Sycamore woman. She is Mrs. Oscar Lawton, 68, suffering with chest and head injuries and was yet in Sycamore hospital Monday.

The first crash involved three cars and occurred about 6:45 o'clock three quarters of a mile north of here on Route 23. Oscar Lawton, 61, Sycamore, was south bound.

His car and a north bound car driven by Jervis Milam, 18 (sic), of Gurnee, Ill. collided head-on. He suffered a bruised left eye, received first aid but was not hospitalized. Frances A. Milam, 18, accompanying Jervis injured her left eye.

L. W. Wilkins, 53, of Lydon, Ill., was also north bound and following the Lawton car. The latter car rammed the rear of the crashed Lawton car. He was unhurt but Evelyn Wilkins, 38, who was with him suffered cuts about her face and head. Also riding with Wilkins were Nancy Skibbe and Mrs. Samuel Kain but the latter were unhurt.5
