Vassar Senior
In Pittsburgh
Michigan Athlete Marries
Eleanor Merrick; Plan
Ann Arbor Residence
PITTSBURGH, Jan. 11- (Special
to The Daily) - Frank S. Bissell,
University of Michigan athlete,
was married here today to Miss
Eleanor Merrick of Vassar College -
despite last week's announcement by
her mother that the two young Pitts-
burgh socialites would not be married
until "they both graduate in June."
The marriage, which was held at
5 p.m. in Calvary Protestant Episco-
pal Church, climaxes an amusing
episode in which Bissell told the mar-
riage clerk, only last week, that he
"wouldn't need the license for 60
days," which was followed by a strong
statement from bride's mother, Mrs.
Frederick I. Merrick, of Norwood
Heights, to the effect "that it would.
be a lot longer than sixty days."
Bissell will return to the campus
next week accompanied by his bride.
According to the mother the girl is
not returning to Vassar where she
was a senior but will take up Ann
Arbor residence instead.
Thomas O. Cowdrey, Bissell's room-
mate, was one of the ushers at the
