PALAS - ORR It used to be said of a certain Senator years ago that he could walk over a tin roof with six inch spikes in his boots and make less noise than a pussy-cat would walking over a brussels carpet, but Postville has a young couple that have the Senator backed way off the map. We refer to Lieut. John A. Palas and Miss Edith Orr of this city, who a week ago Saturday, at 9:30 p.m., walked over to the Congregational parsonage in this city and had Rev. L. W. Wiltberger link 'em up for life, and kept the blooming fact from their friends for nigh on to a week without their even becoming suspicious, and the entire community has been waiting and watching for the event for a long time as they knew it was bound to happen sooner or later. It was a slick job of slipping one over on a suspecting public, but as they are both just the finest young people ever we will forgive them this time, and join with friends innumerable in wishing them all the happiness, health and prosperity this old world affords. For the present Mr. and Mrs. Palas will make their home with the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Darius Orr. ~Postville Herald, Fri. December 26, 1919 - contributed by Reid R. Johnson
