Miss Opal Robinson Is Bride
Of Mr. Ansel Solenberger.

     A very beautiful ceremony was solemnized at twelve o'clock today when Miss Mary Opal Robinson became the bride of Mr. Ansel Benjamin Solenberger. The Friends' ceremony was used, and was followed by a prayer by Dr. W. F. Locke, of Washington.
     The wedding took place at the home of the bride's mother, which was beautifully decorated with cut flowers and fern.
     The bride was attired in white lace, over satin made along old fashioned lines, and wore a bandeau of orange blossoms. She carried a shower bouquet of Killarney roses and lilies of the valley.
     The mother of the bride and the mother of the bridegroom each wore white crepe dresses and shoulder corsages of Briarcliffe roses. The ceremony was witnessed by members of the immediate families, and following the ceremony, a wedding breakfast was served at the home of the bride.
     Mrs. Solenberger is the daughter of Mrs. Robinson and the late James L. Robinson, who was one of the pioneers of the apple business in the Shenandoah Valley. She is a graduate of Swarthmore College and has done extensive summer work at Harvard. She is a member of the faculty of the Handley High School and was one of the organizers, and is now president, of the Girls' Athletic Association.
     Mr. Solenberger is the son of Mrs. Solenberger and the late B. F. Solenberger, who was a very successful farmer in Frederick county. He attended school locally and later studied at V. P. I. at Blacksburg. He is the manager of the Shawnee Building and Loan Association.
     Mr. and Mrs. Solenberger left early this afternoon for an extended trip and upon their return, will make their home in Winchester.
