[Fresno Bee, Tuesday, September 22, 1953]
The engagement of Ruth Rita Aronstein to Donald Noel Bricker was revealed at a barbecue held in the home of Dr. and Mrs. Carl M. Secrest, with their daughter, Bonne, as the hostess.
Miss Aronstein is a kindergarten teacher in the Del Mar School, the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Ernest Aronstein. Bricker, a former member of the Brooklyn Dodgers' squad, is taking training as a coach in the Fresno State College.
The couple are planning a November 21st wedding in the Aronstein home.
The guests at the Sunday night party learned of the betrothal when they, were served individual ice cream cups. On a second lid in each cup was an abstract drawing of a catcher's glove, guard and a baseball and the names of the couple.
Bricker is a senior in FSC and a member of the Varsity F. He attended the College of Sequoias and the Visalia High School. His parents are Mr. and Mrs. Harry Bricker of that city.
Bricker was with the Brooklyn Dodgers in Vero Beach, Fla., last spring and then was sold to the Calgary Stampeders and with that club this season in the Western International League.
