Pacific Grove Tide, CA April 8, 1938
Betrothal of Doris Cook, Ralph Wilmot Announced
Spring has arrived with a vengeance. There can be no doubt of it for there is always the infallible rule. If, wherever you turn you meet a bride and bridegroom-to-be, you can be sure “the hounds of spring are on winter’s tracks” and June is not far off. One of the latest recruits as well as one of the most popular to join the ever-growing list of young Pacific Grove brides-elect is Miss Doris Cook, who announced her engagement to Ralph Wilmot of King City, in a novel fashion last Friday at the home of her parents, Mr. & Mrs. Walter G. Cook, on Oak street. Using an Easter motif, a basket was filled with varied-color paper eggs to which ribbon streamers were attached, and was suspended from the chandelier in the dining room. Each egg contained a miniature newspaper bearing the news. A similar motif was used to decorate the table, set buffet style from which the guests helped themselves to a later supper after an evening of cards. The cloth was a green and yellow lace and was centered with a pastoral scene complete with barnyard fowls, a mirror pond and a tiny fence. Guests at the party were Mrs. Cyril W. Church and the Misses Marjorie Banta, Thelma Philbrick, Helen Randol, Dorothy Orchard, Moretta Hansen, Katherine Littlefield, Winifred Van Ess, Frances Hodges, Lucille Killingworth, Jean Perkins, Olivia Davis, Betty Draper, Ivy Watson, Peggy McDonald and Ethel Wilmot. Mrs. Margueritte Wilmot of King City, mother of Miss Cook’s fiancé, assisted her and Mrs. Cook in receiving the guests. Miss Cook was graduated from the Pacific Grove High School in 1936 and attended the Salinas Junior College a year. Here she edited the year book, “LaReata,” for 1937, and was a member and officer of Upsilon Gamma Chi sorority. For most of the past year she has been on the staff of the Carmel Pine Cone. She is the sister of Jack Cook. Her fiancé is the brother of Miss Ethel Wilmot and Merrill Wilmot and was graduated from Black Fox Military Academy in Hollywood, where he was captain of the football team. He has since attended and played football at the Salinas Junior College, the University of Southern California and the University of California at Berkeley. The couple are planning a late summer wedding and intend to make their home on Mr. Wilmot’s ranch near King City, where he is now engaged in farming.
