Two popular young people of Red Deer town -- the groom belonging to one of the older families of the city and giving gallant service in his three years overseas -- will receive the heartiest of good wishes on their marriage on Wednesday afternoon at 3 o'clock, when, at the residence of the bride's parents, Mr and Mrs Wayne Rutledge, First St South, Red Deer. Mr Roy Malcolm, eldest son of Mr and Mrs John Malcolm, was united in marriage to Miss Lois Rutledge. The wedding company consisted of the immediate families and near friends, and the ceremony was performed by Rev W G Brown. The floral decorations of asters and sweet peas, with arch of evergreens and floral bell, and the decorations of sweet peas which adorned the tables added to the festiveness of the occasion. The bride was given away by her father, and was attractively gowned in white satin with Georgette overdress; she carried a shower bouquet of sweet peas. The young people were unattended. The music was a delightful feature of the happy event. Mrs B Carlton singing before the ceremony "And Yet" -- Jane Hattway, Miss Cousins playing the Bridal Chorus from Lohengrin, while Miss Cardwell sang "Because" -- Guy de'Hardelot, as the register was being signed. A dainty luncheon was served to the guests after which Mr and Mrs Malcolm left on the evening train for Edmonton, the bride travelling in a suit of navy blue tricotine with hat, a black Knox sailor. On their return they will spend a couple of weeks at Sylvan Lake before taking up residence in town.

The out of town guests were Miss Marguerite Cousins, Calgary; Dr and Mrs Plaxton, Calgary; and Mr and Mrs B Carlton, the bride's uncle and aunt, from Early, Iowa.8

The many friends of Mr and Mrs Roy Malcolm will regret to hear of their removal to Waterloo, Iowa, next week. Roy has been one of the best sports Red Deer has ever had from his boyhood days with the school kiddies to the present time. He was very prominent as a hockey player, and could always be relied upon in a pinch. He served his country overseas, and will be greatly missed in his old home town. Mrs Malcolm was always prominent among the young ladies, and will also be greatly missed. Mr and Mrs W W Rutledge, Mrs Malcolm's parents, arrived from Waterloo on Friday last, and will go back with them. Waterloo is a town about the size of Calgary, and Roy will find ample scope for his artistic abilities as a window dresser, he having had charge of that department in the W E Lord Co store for a considerable time. We all wish Roy and his wife every prosperity in their new home.10
