Moorman Captures Heart of a Ma'm'selle Whom He Saw in Brest. The following clipping from the Telegram., Ft Worth, Texas, gives a very interesting account of the ro mance and announcement of the ap proaching marriage of Frank L. Moorman, a former Cloverport S)oy, who is the son of Mrs. Sallie Moor man. Mr. Moorman's marriage took place on Wednesday, September 24, in Ft Worth. And this is how it all happened: Ma'm'selle Suzanne Marie Elinoire Genaille. formerly of Paris, erstwhile interpreter for Admiral Wilson of the American fleet recently attached to the American Naval Aviation Force at Brest and later at Washington, dropped the French "handle" when she cans to Toae. She becatiM plain (that is as plain as a tres jolie ma'm' selle could become) Miss Suzanne Genaille. And now she's going to Americanize even more, for within twenty-four hours, her calling cards will read "Mrs. Frank. L. Moorman." There's a romance! Ah! Ottil Frank L. Moorman was in the avia tion section of the navy which put him on land duty. Moorman frequently visited Ameri can Naval Aviation Force headquar ters at Brest. And he frequently saw an extremely pretty French girl who acted as interpreter. They passed within a few fact of each other in the office and met in the street. But they never really, truly "iret" as Ameri cans term it. Eventually the war was over. Miss Genaille wa sent to Washington. Moorman came home and in the course ot human events, got out of the Navy. Miss Genaille made friends with Mis Nell Davenport and came to Fort Worth, to see Indians and buffalo and oil fields. The Gypsy Hurk Oil Company opened offices, in the Continental Bank building. A nice looking young man sat in as executive of the com pany He was Frank L. Moorman, formerly ot the Naval Aviation Forc es. Alors! If you haven't guessed by this time that Moorman unexpected ly saw Miss Genaille one day, hunted up mutual friends secured an intro duction and since July made a whirl wind campaign and captured the heart of Miss Genaille wel, you're not nearly entitled to know that Rev Forrest Smith will perform a mar nagc ceremony at :t P. M Wednesday at the Broadway Baptist church in which Miss Genaille and Moorman will be the principals, with Miss Davenport and Mrs. Walker as aides. BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION.
