       "Miss Crawford, School Teacher, Leaves Charge And Is Married.
       "Several weeks ago Miss Mildred Naudain Crawford, 540 North Fulton avenue, was appointed principal of the public school at Barnesville, Montgomery county. She was to have taken charge Monday, but when the pupils assembled they were disappointed. Later in the day Prof. Earle B. Wood, county superintendent of schools, received a short note from the new principal that she was no longer Miss Crawford, but Mrs. Albert Curtis Bowersock, and would not be able to accept the appointment.
       "Miss Crawford, it was learned, went to Rockville Saturday afternoon. Mr. Albert C. Bowersock accompanied her. Professor Wood entered the scene and, introducing himself to Miss Crawford, was informed that she expected to go to Barnesville that following day.
       "Shortly afterward Miss Crawford and Mr. Bowersock started uptown. Mr. Bowersock hunted up Deputy Clerk Talbott. He quickly secured a marriage license, and almost before Miss Crawford had forgotten her arrangement with the school superintendent Rev. Thomas J. Packard, a Rockville minister, had been sent for and she had become Mrs. Bowersock.
       "They will live at 540 North Fulton avenue."7
