Miss Helen 0. Johnson and Louis J.
Robinson Wed Despite Parents.
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.
