Mr. and Mrs. Henry C. Johnson of 1942 9th street northwest have received word of the marriage of their daughter. Miss Helen E. Johnson, to Louis J. Robinson of Brightwood. The marriage, which was the culmination of an elopement, took place last Saturday, the young couple first being married In Washington by Rev. George W. Swift, and later going to Baltimore, where a dispensation was secured and a second marriage was performed by the pastor of St. Charles* Catholic Church. Miss Johnson, who is Rpvontecr ,-c old, was 'employed for two years as an operator at the "north" telephone exchange, and met Mr. Robinson about four months ago. Owing to the youth of their daughter, the parents objected to an immediate marriage and the oouple decided to wait until next spring. The elopement was carried out with much secrecy, no hint of their Intention being given until a telegram was received an* nouncing the marriage.
