On December 24th, 1921, at Caldwell, Idaho, Mr. Albert E. Hankins and Mrs. Harriet E. Massey, both of Nampa, Idaho, were united in marriage. Mrs. Hankins is the daughter of Mr. and mrs. John R. Ellis, of Jerome, and is well known and popular here.
The newly married couple are making a visit this week at the home of the bride's parents in Jerome. Mrs. Hankins is one of the teachers in the Nampa city schools and will complete the school year as such.
Mr. Hankins holds the responsible position of general yard master of the Oregon Short Line railroad at Nampa and is an old employe of the company. He is a former service man, having served eighteen months with the American expeditionary forces in France.
Many Jerome friends will extend their congratulations and best wishes to Mr. and Mrs. Hankins.
