Married. Sally Seymour, daughter of President Charles Seymour of Yale University; and James Merriam Howard Jr., Yale senior newly enlisted in the Marine Corps; in New Haven.

Married. Jive-diva Ella Logan, 29; and Writer-Producer Fred F. Finklehoffe, 32; in Greenwich, Conn. He collaborated on Brother Rat, produced Show Time, now starring his bride on Broadway.

Married. Ogden Ludlow, 43, ex-husband of Actress Katharine Hepburn; and Elizabeth K. Albers, 24-year-old Bostonian; ten days after his doubt about the legality of the actress’s eight-year-old Mexican divorce led him to divorce her in Connecticut; in Washington, D.C.

Married. Julie Bradley Shipman, sixtyish, longtime fixture of Newport society; and John C. Fremont, 62, retired Navy captain, grandson of famed frontiersman General John C. (“The Pathfinder”) Fremont; in Manhattan. Widow of the late Suffragan Bishop of New York, she owns the palatial “Seaview Terrace,” famed $1,000,000 Newport showplace (twice put on auction, once for taxes, twice withdrawn for lack of sizable bids).

Separated. Cinemactress Ann Sheridan, 27, fire-haired oomphoriginal; and Cinemactor George Brent, 38; after eight months. He has quit cinemacting for the duration to work as a civilian flying instructor at California’s Oxnard Field.

Died. George Warwick McClintic, 76, retired U.S. district judge; in Charleston, W.Va. Famed in the Prohibition era for his merciless punishment of Dry law violators, he sent more than 7,000 violators to jail, in one four-year period gathered in some half-million dollars in fines.

Died. Ralph Adams Cram, 78, architect, medievalist; in Boston (see p. 48).

Died. The Rev. Dr. Wilson Carlile, 95, “Bishop of Billingsgate, Archbishop of the Gutter”; three hours after the death of his brother, Sir Hildred Carlile, 90; in Woking, England. He resigned his curacy at London’s St. Mary Abbots to play trombone or trumpet at street meetings in the London slums. Thus he founded the Church Army of the Church of England in the early ’80s, built it into a vast organization of aims and size comparable to the Salvation Army. (His parishioners disapproved. One objected that pocket picking had gone on at one of the street meetings; Dr. Carlile rejoiced that thieves were attending.) To the day of his death he eschewed “luxuries such as slippers and cushions,” never sat on a couch if he could avoid it, always worked on a high, uncomfortable stool, as he had a great dread of feeling comfortable.
