ANNE HIGHLEY, DR. WILLIS GLAS REPEAT VOWS Miss Anne Catharine Highley, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Aiden Marvin Highley of Berkshire Rd., was united in marriage to Dr. Wayne Willis Glas, son of Albert Wagar Glas of E. University Ave., in a ceremony held yesterday afternoon in the chapel of the First Methodist Church. The couple repeated their vows before the altar where the bride’s great-grandfather, grandfather, and three great-uncles, all Methodist ministers, had stood in worship. The altar, which was part of the old Methodist Church, was transferred to the chapel when the new church was erected. Delicate greenery of cybotium fern formed a background in the chancel for arrangements of white regal lilies, gladioli, and shell-pink delphinium. Rev. Robert H. Jongeward read the marriage service in the presence of 85 relatives and close friends. Wears Cinnamon Brown The bride chose for her wedding a suit of cinnamon brown natural silk, the jacket of which was fashioned with a rippled peplum. The hand-fashioned blouse of ivory chiffon was styled with a vestee of Chantilly lace and the narrow cuffs and standing collar of sheer satin were edged with narrow frills of the lace. Her large picture hat of patterned straw was of a caramel shade with a notched edge, while the crown was banded in a wide meshed brown veiling tied in a large bow reaching to the shoulder. She carried an heirloom handkerchief of rose pointe lace and wore a corsage of gold Peruvian lilies centered by a cattelia orchid. Mrs. John Ingersoll of Melrose Ave. was the bride’s only attendant and wore a suit of powder blue rayon mesh. Her crownless hat of cream colored straw was edged with straw lace and she wore pinned at her shoulder a corsage of sweetheart roses and pale blue larkspur. Wagar Glas of Ardmore Dr. assisted his brother as best man. A reception for 135 guests followed at the home of the bride’s parents. Dr. and Mrs. Glas received the guests before the living room fireplace which was banked with greenery and white and shell-pink flowers. Uses Grandparents’ Table Cover In the dining room, the table was covered with the same deeply fringed white damask cloth patterned in ivy and moss roses which had been used by the bride’s grandparents at their wedding. Assisting at the reception were Mrs. James B. Edmonson, Miss Marion McLellan, Mrs. Max Peet, Mrs. Ira Smith, Mirs. William Laird, Mrs. Ralph Sawyer, Mrs. Theophil Klingman, Mrs. R. G. MacKenzie, Mrs. James Williams, Mrs. Clayton Lewis, Mrs. Kevin Jones, Mrs. Arnold Goss and Mrs. Carter Taylor. Barbara Piper and Johanne Smith served at the punchbowl, while Joan and Jane Badgley were in charge of the guest book. Dr. and Mrs. Glas left for a month’s trip to Montreal and Quebec and will be home after Sept. 1 at 2753 Parkwood Ave. The former Miss Highley is a graduate of University High School and the University, where she was a member of Kappa Alpha Theta sorority. Dr. Glas was graduated from University High School, the University, and the University School of Medicine. He is a member of Nu Sigma fraternity. Before her marriage, the bride was honored at a shower given by Mrs. Clayton Lewis and Mrs. George Sallade and at a bridge party given by Mrs. Kevin Jones. Mr. and Mrs. James Williams honored the couple at a household shower, while Wagar Glas entertained at a dinner for his brother.
