St. John's Church, Winona, was the setting for the marriage of Miss Frances Coster Scovil, daughter of the Venerable Archdeacon G.F. Scovil to Flt. Lieut. John Frederick Evans, son of Mr. and Mrs. W.W. Evans, Saskatoon. The bride's father officiated.

Rev. G.C. Coster Scovil gave his sister in marriage. She wore a princess gown of white slipper satin, with train, her veil held with a lace cap, and carried white and Sweetheart roses. Mrs. John L. Campbell of Toronto, her matron of honour, chose minuet blue net, matching hat of stiffened net, and carried a nosegay of roses and forget-me-nots. The groomsman was Flt. Lieut. D.L. George Turvey, DFC of No. 1 Wireless School, Mount Hope, and the ushers were Lieut.-Col. Leo Smallwood, Ottawa, and Mr. John L. Campbell, Toronto.

A reception followed at the rectory. The couple will live in Gimli, Man. Both returned to Canada the first of the year after service overseas, where the bride was a Red Cross welfare officer in Africa and Italy, in which countries the bridegroom served for 5 years.
