Miss Robert Ruth Braatz and Everett Dan Davis were married by Rev. Maas at New London, Conn, the marriage taking place at 7:30 p.m. on May 6th in the Lutheran Redemptors Church of Christ. The attending couple was Mr. and Mrs. Garlyn Hardwood of Westerly, Conn.

The bride wore a rose-colored ensemble with beige accessories and Mrs. Harwood was dressed in a darker rose suit with navy accessories. Both wore corsages of pink tea roses and white sweet peas. The groom and his attendant were in navy uniform. Many other shipmates attended the church services.
