Population Shift Reported For Sexton Area SEXTON-There was asudden increase in the Sexton population the past week in a most unusual way. Mrs. Jim Zaugg and Angela are now making their home here for a few weeks with her mother, Mrs. Claire Hovey. Mr. Zaugg Is taking a training course in preparation for working In a new factory at Mountain Home, Arkansas, and his family will join him there this spring. One more resident was added when Mr. and Mrs. John Jennings provided a home for an elderly lady who is no longer able to take care of herself alone, But the town just can't seem to gain too much as one of our more lively residents has completed her business school at Mason City and Kathy Pruisman was once more making plans to go to the big city of Minneapolis to work. One of the nicest fellows around town is Roger Arndorfer but have you noticed how very popular he becomes this time of the year when there's another snowstorm. Must have something to do with that well equipped tractor or most of the town would stay snowed in until spring. Mrs. Nell Opheim was enjoying her long planned vacation in California with even a little "beach combing" among the sights, but it all ended with sad news. Word has been received of the death of her sister, Mrs. Charles Stratton at Denver, Colorado. The Sexton Friendly Club finally managed to have it's January meeting in February with an art stencil session at Mrs. Art Hixes. Hopefully the February meeting will be a potluck supper at'the home of Mrs. JackWeder- quist on Monday evening at 6:30. Members should bring their own dishes and something to put on them and maybe the Monday night bad weather linx will be broken.
