A VALENTINE BRIDE
A valentine bride will be Miss Oro Root, who is to wed Guy Whitmore on Wednesday evening at the home of her mother, Mrs. Milton Burdette Root of Alice street. The ceremony will be unostentatious and simple in detail. The bride-elect is a state university student and has many friends in this vicinity who regret that her marriage will take her away from Oakland. Whitmore is interested in the ranching industry and has extensive peach orchards in the southern part of the state. He is a former university student and is a Delta Tau Delta fraternity man.
