      Going 12,000 Miles to Wed
      Miss Louise Broecker Will Marry Lutheran Missionary in India..
      Are Childhood Friends 
      Wedding to Rev. Richard R. Goerss of Martinsville Will be Culmination of Romantic Courtship - A Girl's Devotion to Her Lover.
      Miss Louise Broecker, daughter of Charles Broecker of the Nash road in the town of Wheatfield, who has just graduated as a missionary nurse from the Concordia Seminary at St. Louis, will leave next week for East India, where she will be married to the Rev. Richard R. Goerss, son of Mr. and Mrs. William F. Goerss of the Tonawanda creek road, at Martinsville, who is now a missionary in that country. On her trip to the missionary field, Miss Broecker will be accompanied by Miss Helen Gerbing of Gotha, Ga., a classmate who will marry the Rev. Jean Williams at Ambur in East India. The marriage of Miss Broecker to Rev. Goerss, which is to take place in September, will culminate a romantic courtship. Rev. Goerss and Miss Broecker have been friends since childhood. Four years ago. Rev. Goerss left Martinsville to study for the ministry. He was ordained a year ago. Under the ruling of the church, of which the young clergyman is a missionary, the wife of a missionary must be a seminary trained nurse. In order that she might marry Mr. Goerss, Miss Broecker went to the St. Louis seminary a year ago to study to be a nurse. She graduated a fortnight ago and returned to her home. Miss Broecker is now spending a few weeks with her father at St.Johnsburg The trip, which Miss Broecker will make, will require six weeks and will cover about 12.000 miles. She will be met by her fiancé at Colomba, Ceylon. The marriage will take place there. After the wedding, the couple will journey to Nagercoil, Western India, where they will make their future home. The Rev. Mr. Goerss is now a Lutheran missionary at that place.
