• A simple but lovely wedding of considerable interest to northern and central Arizona was solemnized Friday evening at Phoenix, when Miss Cecil Genevieve Kuykendall of Tempe became the bride of F. Evarts Wells Jr. of San Diego, Calif. The young attractive bride wore a powder blue ensemble with rust accessories and a corsage of gardenias. The groom was in his service uniform.

The young couple came to Williams Sunday to visit the groom's parents and his friends. They departed today, via Boulder Dam, for San Diego, where they plan to reside for the present.

• The Foursquare Church Friendly Acres Camp northwest of town will be teeming with activity for four days beginning tomorrow when members from all over the state gather for a weekend of worship and work. Meals are being served at the camp, and non-members as well as members will be accommodated for a reasonable fee.

This is a good thing to keep in mind, with a Labor Day crowd expected in Williams this week, all available eating space may be taken.

• A national shortage of steel posts has delayed the installation of new road signs on the Williams Ranger District. The old road signs were removed in anticipation of erecting the new signs during August. It appears now that the new signs will not be installed until the spring of 1974.
