Sexton Women Have Lengthy Xmas Party SEXTON * The December meeting of the Sexton Friendly Club was a Christmas dinner at a restaurant in Algona, It was a real Christmas atmosphere with the red carpet and it some of the husbands are wondering why the dinner lasted so long, that might explain where the ladies were, A gift exchange was held and a box of gifts prepared for the Woodward home, The January meeting will be at the home of Mrs. Hell Opheim. - o- Mrs, Clarence Huff and Mr. John Stratton accompanied Mr. and Mrs. Frank Stratton of Thornton to Mallard where they all enjoyed an open house at the Lutheran church in honor of the golden wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Prochaska and a visit at the Prochaskahome in the evening with a number of relatives. Mr. and Mrs. L. W. Baldwin of Waterloo returned home with the Strattons for a visit and will return to Waterloo this Tuesday when Mr. and Mrs, Stratton take their son Kenneth to Davenport to visit school facilities for next year. As long as the weather holds up warm we are keeping Mr. and Mrs. John Jennings with us. Mrs. Jennings' sister, Mrs. Sumner Parsons, has already left for Texas because of the arrival of twins in her daughter Barbara's . family. But it's not so quiet at the Jennings home. While in the area their son Don was an overnight visitor and Mr. and Mrs. Mike Koppen of Whittemore were Sunday afternoon callers. Mr. and Mrs. Jennings are also looking forward to attending the wedding of another grandchild this year., Steve Canaday, soi of Clarence Canaday and the late Jean Canaday. It's too bad so many of the young people who have left the area aren't making their homes here as the town has lost a large amount of its population the past year and the empty houses are beginning to look lonesome these cold evenings. The latest to . leave are Mr. and Mrs. Martin j Uimbaoh wiioi'have moved to the I \ Francis McMahon house east of .' • town. They're not so far away we can't see them once in a while, but it did leave one more dark spot on the street. Last week was another of those that has become known as a Gabrlelson week around here. Mrs. Gabrielson spent the time at Cedar Falls welcoming the arrival of their first grandchild, Mark David, weighing B IDS., 1 oz., and equipped with a dimple in each cheek and a good pair of lungs. His parents are Mr. and Mrs. Wally Murphy of Cedar Falls and the young man arrived Noy. 29, Just missing his great- grandmother's birthday. Mrs. Laymon accompanied Qie new grandfather to Cedar Falls over the weekend and Mrs. Gabrlelson returned home with them. They stopped at Clear Lake on the way home at the Don Gabrielson's as,he had .been seriously ill after finishing cornpicking last month but is now much improved, they also had word that the Gabrlelsons* mother, Mrs. Florence Gabrielson of Starbuck, BOOST THE V INCOME POTENTIAL ON YOUR FARM It makes family labor pay big dividends Find out more about boosting your income potential SAVE $3 per 100 Pvilitt - Order For Spring by Pec. 18 WHITTEMORE HATCHERY Phono 4161 Minn,, is making good recovery from surgery last week. And just to make life interesting, Mrs. Gabrielson also packed up and sent on his way their son, Kenyon, the day before she left for Cedar Falls. Kenyon accompanied Tim Claude of Algona to California where the two boys have an apartment together at Westminister, Another new arrival of interest to local folks is another very pretty little girl at the Clarence Golwltzer home in Wesley. No, not another redhead. Some news of the boys in service; Mrs. Evert Steven and Craig accompanied Mr. and Mrs. Bob Kiess of Charles City to Ft. Leonard Wood where they were very fortunate to see Rick Steven. He had been ill and confined to the army hospital before their arrival, but did secure a weekend pass. They rented a cottage at Lake of the Ozarks and the men talked over army training while the ladles just enjoyed the roses blooming at the door while back home we were enjoying the first blizzard of the winter. This is not the only area with unusual weather this year as a call from Mrs. Max Stratton in Pacoima, Calif, admitted it was pouring down rain for the past two weeks. They are all well in spite of the strange weather and she is busy working as a nurses aid since October.
