Disfigured, But Still In Ring
Male Contingent of Wedding Party Makes Sorry Appearance Owing to Auto Wreck
Special to The Daily Times
Chicago, Jan. 20 An automobile crash at Forty-seventh street Drexel boulevard in which the bridegroom, his parents and his best man were more of less injured, was not enough to prevent the marriage of Dr. Philip Frank Shaffner to Miss Beatrice Weil, according to schedule last night.
Dr. Shaffner, his wedding suit torn and dirty, and several bruises on his face, took the hand of his bride and answered questions put to him by the minister. The injured best man limped and was considerably mussed up, but did duty effectively as if he had not been hurt.
The parents of Dr. Shaffner had to be propped up in chairs, but they gave their blessings to the bride and groom.
