Sexton Hiway Sign Group Still Busy SEXTON - The Sexton Friendly Club at their pot-luck supper meeting Monday night at the Jack Wederquists had their usual good luck of having a little bit of everything and all of it good. The business meeting once more heard from the Hiway Sign for Sexton committee and in the general discussion which followed their lack of progress, it was decided to make 1 x 4 signs in white with orange fluorescent letters. The problem of putting the materials together before spring was handed to Mrs. Clarence Huff. Entertainment interspersed throughout the meeting was provided by Mrs. Nell Opheim's account of the hard way to get to California and back. Mrs. Sam Miller, as guest for the evening, was also given the opportunity to find out just what kind of neighbors she has moved among at Sexton I The next Friendly Club meeting will be the last Monday in March at the home of Mrs. John Jennings with roll call of "a storm I remember." Perhaps by then we will have a brand new one to talk over. Mrs. John Jennings was unable to attend the meeting because of a freak accident that has resulted in a lot of discomfort and a trip to the doctor. She dropped her ironing board which resulted in a large toe nail splitting and left her certainly not in a party mood. - o - TURTLE, ANYONE ? Anyone who has ever made the effort to catch and clean a turtle knows what a hardworking fellow we have for the newest resident in the Sexton area. Sam Miller "laid by" enough turtle this fall to provide a turtle supper for 48 people helping the Millers celebrate getting moved into their new home west of town. Guests enjoying the results of his effort and Mrs. Miller's cooking, came from Corwith, LuVerne, West Bend, Sexton and Minnesota. - o - DIRT,- YOU BET I This will be the year Glenn Gabrielson takes off a year from farming to travel. He might as well. His neighbors will confirm at least the top six inches of his farm is now covering Sexton. Local housewives finally know why Glenn needs such a big tractor to get through his fields. He has the stickiest topsoil in the county, at least when its applied to windows and children's shoes. The only ones enjoying the mess must be the so-so housekeeper. For once, her house isn't any dirtier than her most particular neighbors. The only bright spot left in town is that new red pickup with the matching red and white camper that Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Witham brought home from Forest City. Maybe Glenn should get together with his neighbors on summer travel plans. - o - Our first returning vacationer came back with a glowing description of the paradise to the far west of Iowa. After being grounded at Omaha and making an all-night train ride to get home to a day of below zero weather and the aftermath of a dust blizzard, Mrs. Nell Opheim still said it's so good to get back home! If only the Industrial Development Corp. In Algona could figure out what Iowa has to bring people back from Paradise they could make a fortune bottling and selling it. There was one hint of trouble, even in Paradise, as Mrs. Opheim was also grounded by fog when she reached Oakland and had to complete her trip to San Diego by bus. After her first plane trip, Mrs. Opheim also thinks there's nothing quite the equal to flying if you could only get to where you wanted to go in the first place. Plans seem to be under way for another couple to make their home here. Mr. and Mrs. Pratt are going to remodel the house formerly occupied by the Martin Mimbachs in preparation for Mr. Pratt's retirement next year. Mr. and Mrs. Roy Hansen and Mrs. Jack Wederquist visited Cora Hansen at the Good Samaritan Home Sunday and found her in good health. They were also able to chat with a former Sexton resident, Mrs. Christine Didriksen, who was most interested in the changes made by the Sam Millers at her old home. One more local housewife has made the big jump to "working for pay" for just a little while and is finding it turning into a regular job. Mrs. Perry Lowman filled in for a few weeks at a hot lunch job at the Annex for a vacationing worker, but finds she is still needed "for just a few more weeks." Just a news Item to let local folks know the Art Kleins are still at home on the farm, we Just don't see them is all. Mr. and Mrs. Duane Sheppard spent Sunday evening with the Kleins and their daughter, Virginia, was also home from her teaching position at Clear Lake this past weekend. Haven't heard much from the Glenn Gabrielsons for a while but they are still active in a few things since Mrs. Gabrielson accompanied Mrs. Fred Shilts of Algona to Sheffield for an Eastern Star meeting. Glenn Gabrielson's sister and family, the George Clarks of Ames, were guests last weekend as a farewell to the Clark's son who is leaving for service. John Stratton has received word' the Frank Strattons at Thornton have bought a, farm at Alexandria, Minn, and with the aid of their sons also plan to work the farm at Thornton for at least one more year as well as the new place in Minnesota. Sunday callers at the John Jennings home were Mr. and Mrs. Everett Hanna of Lone Rock and Virgil Jennings of LuVerne. Mr. and Mrs. Chris Englebarts and daughters of Ledyard also came to see their aunt, Mrs. Elizabeth Gettman, who is making her home with the Jennings. Mrs. Jennings also received a birthday card from her sister-in-law, Mrs. Julia Taft, who has spent some time at Sexton in the past. Mrs. Taft and her daughter have now settled at Northcrest Apts., which is a co-op for retired people at Ames. There must be more winter expected as the trips to California continue. Mr. and Mrs. Ole Frendahl are the latest to leave for a few weeks' visit. Word has been received of a fire at the Delbert Sank^y home with almost total loss ol household goods. They had just moved to the LuVerne area from Wesley last fall. Mrs. Sankey is the former Donna Jean Smith and a Sexton area resident for years.
