Engagement of Prof. Warren A. Rose, Principal of Milltown School, to Miss Fisk, of Newark, Announced – other Notes of Busy Town

MILLTOWN, Jan. 26.—The engagement has been announced of Professor Warren A. Roe, son of Mr. and Mrs. George W. Roe, of 11 Mount Pleasant avenue. Newark, to Miss Charlotte E. Fisk, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Manson Fisk, of 1153 Broad street Newark. Professor Roe graduated from Lafayette in the class of 1905 and has since finished a course at New York University.

He is a member of Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity. In 1907 he took the position of principal of the Milltown public school which he still holds. The school under Professor Roe’s direction has been improved in many ways and has graduated many pupils who were properly trained to enter upon a high school course. This year Professor Roe was instrumental in starting a night school which has proved a great success and many are taking advantage of the opportunity. The attendance at the school exceeded the expectation of the board of education and it was necessary to obtain Professor Spring, of Highland Park as an assistant. J. M. Fisk, father of the fiancée, is a member of the law firm of Fish and Shaw, New York City. Prof. Roe and Miss Fisk are very popular in Newark society and have a host of friends from whom hearty congratulations are being received. Miss Fisk, this coming Thursday will give a tea at her home in honor of her friend Miss Mildred Cadmus, of Newark, who has announced her engagement to William Randolph Childs, also of Newark.
