Little Of This & Lot Of That From Sexton SEXTON - The Sexton Friendly Club will meet a week early this month because of the Memorial holiday and because the hostess, Mrs. Nell Opheim, will behaving a houseful of company for the holiday weekend. Roll call will be "my most useful kitchen gadget" and plans are to be made for a project for the patients the club remembers at the Woodward home. It's finally beginning to feel like spring in the air what with so many robins all over the place and now the martins are coming back this week. We can only hope for the Mimbachs that it stays warm so they won't have to turn around and head back to Arizona. Mrs. August Kirschbaum and Mrs. Vinnie Laymon accompanied Mrs. Glenn Gabrielson to the Mother's Day tea at the denter School where the hostesses were the Plum Creek 4-H girls. Virginia Klein, teaching at Clear Lake, invited her parents, the Art Kleins to dinner in honor of Mother's Day Sunday. They found the place closed they had planned for their dinner but had an interesting day after all, at least for Art, as they stopped at the Airport Cafe and now heartily recommend it for a "different" place to eat. Mother's Day celebrations aren't always what they seem to be. That big crowd of children and grandchildren arriving at the John Jennings' home over the weekend brought along three birthday cakes to celebrate John's "39th" birthday. It came mighty close to being hospital news again for Sexton. When Pamela Llckteig, little daughter of the Dick Lickteigs, was taken to the doctor it was found she had bronchial pneumonia but she came through just fine. A family dinner was held at the Glenn Gabrlelsons last Monday with Mrs. Vinnie Laymon and Mrs. Kenyon Gabrielson attending. This was a farewell for Kenyon Gabrielson who is spending some time at Ft. Campbell, Ky., all courtesy of the U.S. Army. He's not really homesick in his home away from home, he's just called the folks twice already only because it was Mother's Day last weekend. The electric light company isn't taking anymore chances on the high winds in the Sexton area, they are busy putting in brand new poles west of town this week. Sexton residents on the eight- party phone lines shouldn't give up hope. The rumor is revived once more that eventually we will all be on two-party lines and this time the story came from an employee of the phone company. According to him, the extensive damage of last year's snow and ice storm put the company way behind schedule. Bet he thinks at least one line out here could really use the new set-up after he spent considerable time trying to get the line to test a new phone he had installed. Mrs. Glenn Gabrielson had a day of music last week with some real opposites. Mrs. Gabrielson and Mrs. Claire Hovey were guests of Mrs. Evert Steven at the Bel Canto tea which was held at the Algona Country Club in the afternoon. In the evening Mr. and Mrs. Gabrielson attended the concert given by the Algona Community School bands of which their daughter, Joyce is a member. Other local youngsters in the bands were Sharon and George Hix, Kathy Skow, Carol Mains and Barry Huff. These youngsters' parents also attended the concert which had a full house and an appreciative audience for the excellent music provided by the young people. It's a good bet the rain storm of the afternoon and night fit in much better for sound effects for the band, especially the number called Hurricane ! Mr. and Mrs. Evert Steven and Mrs. Glenn Gabrielson were among those in two carloads from the Algona area who attended a special Easter Star friendship meeting in Mason City, They also met the Steven's daughter, Mrs. Robert Kiess of Charles City, who had been invited from her chapter of the Star. The need for the Sexton highway signs lias now really become desperate. This week saw a new roof of green shingles put on the Kirschbaum Garage so the big yellow Sexton sign Is gone and even low flying drivers can no longer find their way. Titonka Club Women Tour Union Slough TITONKA- Titonka Federated Club met on Thursday evening at the home of Fay Callies with Mary Schroeder assisting hostess.

J Make Strong Communities /-^ : r; "Hear the voice of my supplication, oa / cry to thee for help as I lift nv my handy toward thy most holy sanctuary. " J P — Psalms 28:2 None of us are so self- reliant that we can always stand completely alone. Yet, many of us are often too proud to admit that we need help or guidance. We make misery a companion and do not turn to those who would gladly lend assistance. There is no reason why we should hesitate to ask God for guidance. God is a friend. If we have the humility (for some) and the courage (for others) to look to God for guidance, the mere effort of asking will usually bring added strength and faith. •~>° — <isk — expecting not an immediate miracle but some kind of a blessing that you will surely receive.
