6-Algonn (la.) Upper Des Moines Thursday, May 4, 1967 Sexton Cleanup Planned, But Not This Way SEXTON - Sexton folks certainly take things calmly. Or maybe it was just they didn't know they were in the middle of a tornado until they read it in the UDM the next day! Sexton folks are also trained to know what to do in case of a tornado. Like the couple who stood in the breezeway watching the big hailstones fall, or the couple who ducked into the trailer house in the yard. Now Elmer knows he really has a solid little trailer that should be safe any place. We're just all happy it was the steel bin east of the trailer that sailed over the top of the chicken house and landed in the middle of the highway. The local ladies club had been talking of promoting a clean-up the town event but they surely didn't plan on doing it the easy way — with a tornado i Much of the damage was confined to destruction of old buildings, but don't mention this to Corrinne Gabrielson while she is still trying to dean up the mess resulting from windows going out on the south side of the house during the storm. But the best evidence there really was a tornado is the row of mangled trees on the Joe Mergen farm south of town. The Glenn Gabrielsons had their own exciting weekend with a lot of company, even for them. The center of all the attention was the wedding of Kenyon Gabrielson and Kathy Ites of Buffalo Center. Mr. and Mrs. Gabrielson were hosts to 20 of the wedding party at a rehearsal dinner Thursday evening. Among the guests here for the wedding were Mr. Gabrielson's mother from Starbuck, Minn., accompanied by her daughter, Mrs. Donald Anderson and children; Mr. and Mrs. Wally Murphy of Cedar Falls; Martha Anderson of Ellsworth; Mr. and Mrs.Ger- ald Gabrielson of St. Paul; and Mr. and Mrs. Don Gabrielson of Clear Lake. Visiting at the Gabrielson home Sunday afternoon were Mr. and Mrs. Harold Hunt, Mr. and Mrs. Kyle Keith, David Gabrielson, who was best man for his cousin, and his fiancee, Chris Martone from New York. All hands pitched in to help mop up water at the height of the storm and Miss Martone found it all a fascinating experience — they don't have things like this in New York. If you're going to entertain company from out of town, you might as well go all out. Spending a few extra days with his grandparents, Mark Murphy wasn't too happy with lights-out situation at the Gabrielsons Sunday evening. Mr. and Mrs. Murphy went to Vermillion, S.D. to inspect the college campus. 1 By Marguerite Hayes Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Dole drove to Knopp, Wise, to spend the weekend with his uncle, Mr. and Mrs. Leo Dole. Mrs. Marie Frankl returned home Thursday after spending several weeks at the home of her son, Gerald Frankl and family at So. Sioux City, Nebr., then by plane to California for a month with relatives there. Mr. and Mrs. George Schumacher of Austin, Minn, were Sunday dinner guests at the home of Marguerite Hayes and in the afternoon attended the 40th wedding anniversary open house at St. Benedict for Mr. and Mrs. Al Rosenmeyer. Mr. and Mrs. F. C. Stork and Rosemary of Bancroft were Sunday callers at homes of her aunts, Mrs. Marie Frankl and Marguerite Hayes. Mr. and Mrs. Jack Schulz and daughters visited their son John at Des Moines where he is attending school. Now In Office Doyle 0. Carpenter, area school superintendent, will be making his office at Estheirille Community College building for the next two weeks. The phone number is 362-2650.
