Ceremony Performed Monday Evening In Portland at Dr. Boyd's Home

Miss Amy Olmsted was married Monday evening, June 17, 1918, to Lieut. Arthur
E. Welch, who is employed in the production of spruce for the United States aviation service
. The ceremony was performed by Dr. John H. Boyd of the First Presbyterian church of
Portland, at his residence. Aaron L. Olmsted, brother of the bride, was the only
member of the family present.

Mr. and Mrs. Welch will keep house at Vancouver or Portland, as the lieutenant's duties,
it is expected, will keep him at the mills while the war lasts.

The Olmsted family, and a few of the bride's intimate friends, knew the wedding was to
take place this year, but expected it would be delayed until fall. So their surprise was not
great at learning of the marriage. Mr. Welch was here for several weeks last summer. He
could not get away from his duty to come to Enterprise for the wedding, as the family had
hoped. He and his bride have been friends for upwards of four years.

Miss Olmsted is one of the most capable and energetic young women who have grown
up in Wallowa county. She was graduated from the University of Washington, and then took
a number of special courses, giving much attention to music. She has taught school at Lostine
and for two years was instructor of music in the Enterprise schools. Her work was marked
by thoroness and a conscientious insistence of pupils doing their work well. She found spare
time enough to take a prominent part in public activities, and was a forceful speaker. Her
address at the unveiling of the Federated church service flag made a distinct impression, and her
talks on the various war causes showed her ability. She was matron of the Wallowa Valley
chapter of the Eastern Star, and went to Portland, as its delegate, leaving home Friday, June 7.

Mr. Welch is a New Yorker and has degrees from the University of Washington and the
Michigan Agricultural college, logging engineering being his specialty. After working for a
lumber company in California and being engaged in biological research for an Idaho
concern, he went to the Presidio, San Francisco, where he entered the second reserve officers'
training camp, where he won his rank as lieutenant. Because of his scientific and technical
training he was placed in the spruce division.

The best wishes of many friends go with the couple.
