Miss Laird has grown to lovely wo- manhood in Potlateh, having come here with her parents when the town was in its infancy. A. W. Laird, father of the bride, is general mana- ger of the Potlatch.

Decker of Moscow and is a native son of Idaho. He is a graduate of the school of forestry of the University of Idaho, a post graduate of the school of forestry at Yale, and, previous to coming to Potlatch was professor of forestry at the State college of \Vash- ington. At the present time he is land agent for the Potlatch Lumber com- pany and secretary of the Potltacb highway district and is one of the most polmlar and sterling of Idaho's song. The date chosen for the wedding was the thirtieth wedding anniver- sary of Mr. and Mrs. Laird, who were married on the evening of October 7, 1891, in Winona, Minnesota. The home was attractively deco- rated with greens, yellow chrysanthe- mums and small lavender asters.. The altar, in front of a lattice of greens, was at the end of the long living room opposite the stairs~where the bride entered. On either side were tall baskets of asters and chrysanthe- rollinS. As the great grandfather's clock chimed the hour of 6 the bride, pre- ceded by her sister, Mrs. C. L. Alas- worth, of Chippewa Falls, \Visconsin, approached the altar to the sLrains or Lohengrin's wedding march, where the bridegroom, attended by his brother, Harold C. Decker, of Spo- kane, was in waiting. The impressive Episcopal service which made them man and wife was spoken by Rev. W. A. Hitchcock of the Union church. Little Allison Laird Ainsworth nephew of the bride, carried the ring in a tiny wreath of flowers. The bride's gown was of white Chantilly lace over white satin, with a rose embroidered court train which was worn by her sister, as was also the veil. She carried a shower boqt~et of Ophelia roses, orchids and sweet alyssum. The matron of honor wore her own white satin wedding gown trimmed with rose embroidery and Duchesse lace and carried an arm boquet of yel-i low roses. After the bride and groom had re- ceived the congratulations of their friends a wedding supper was served. Later the happy couple left by motor for Spokane and the coast. Mrs. Decker's going away suit was of taupe duvedelaine trimmed with marmot fur and shewore a hat to match. They will be at home to their friends after December 1 in Potlatch. The guests included J.
