Full Text

Of interest was the marriage in Grace Church-on-the-Hill, Toronto, on Saturday of Mary Alice, daughter of Mrs. Whyte and the late Dr. Marchant B. Whyte, to Mr. John Ross Gooderham Drope, son of Mrs. Kathleen Drope. Rev. G. Hasted Dowker officiated.

Mr. Peter Whyte gave his sister in marriage, and she wore a graceful gown of ivory satin, made with fitted bodice, long sleeves and very long train. A halo cap held her long veil of net edged with heirloom rose point lace, and she carried a white prayer book with orchids and fern.

Mrs. Arthur M. Jarvis, matron of honour for her sister, wore a tiered nylon net gown of soft green over taffeta; and the bridesmaids, Miss Judy and Miss Jane Drope, sisters of the groom, chose cinnamon shade. All had braided net headdresses and carried sprays of butterfly orchids with fern.

Mr. Jim Whyte was groomsman for his cousin, and the ushers were Messrs. J.F. Howard, J.R. Chipman, B.B. Cronyn, A.M. Jarvis and P.A. Boswell.

The reception was held at the Alexandra Palace. After a motor trip, the bride and groom will live in Toronto.
