I Sexton Lady Leaves; And No One Knew SEXTON - One of Sexton's leading citizens managed what they say is impossible in a small town. Mrs. August Kirschbaum entered Park Hospital in Mason City last week for major surgery without the neighbors knowing she had left town! She is making rapid recovery and is expected home thtc u-PPl(. The hospital roll call is starting in earnest this month as George Hix, son of the Art Mixes, entered Mercy Hospital in Ft. Dodge for surgery this week, also. His grandfather, George Hix, is in the hospital at Britt for a checkup. - o - The Friendly Club will meet Aug. 28 at the home of Mrs. Elmer Phillips after a summer vacation. Roll call will be my first date (witli my husband). Ideas are also needed for a project for the club's Christmas box for the Woodward home residents. Mr. and Mrs. Steve Lovas and daughter, Mrs. JackHoeschlerof Terrytown, New York, spent the weekend at the Jack Wederquist home. Mrs. Lovas is a sister of Mr. Wederquist. They were to join their son-in-law in Wisconsin after leaving here and the two young people were awaiting assignment for a year with VISTA, Mrs. Hoeschler as a teacher and her husband, who has graduated this year from Columbia Law School, as a legal aid. It has been a busy summer for the Wederquists and still proves Sexton is at the crossroads of the country. Other visitors this summer were a friend of Mrs. Weder- quisfs from New York and a brother of Mr. Wederquist from Phoenix, Ariz. All these people managed to find the town without the Sexton signs for the highway which are slowly beginning to make their appearance. Leo Thomsen had a good idea to protect one new sign from cars at the south end of town by putting it out in an open area away from the road but he didn't count on horses being so fond of paint! Everyone would appreciate a good long rain except possibly main street residents. After the last hard rain in July a new family was discovered living on a corner of the ball park on main street. Two skunks emerged for a stroll after that rain but haven't been seen, at least during the daytime, since. Everyone in Sexton didn't sit and wait for company to come this summer, we also had some long distance travelers. Mr. and Mrs. Roy Hansen took a hint from Mrs. Opheim's experience on how easy it is to fly and made their first night. They stopped in Chicago to visit their son Harry and daughter Linda and families and then proceeded on to Maine to visit the Dick Hansen family. While there they made a side trip to the Boston area to visit Mr. and Mrs. Lane, who are parents of the Hansen's next door neighbor, Mrs. Jack Wederquist. The world gets smaller every summer. Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Gabrielson and Joyce didn't waste much time visiting relatives on their trip but they surely saw everything else on the east coast. They started at Canada and took in Niagara Falls before going to Hawthorne, New York for the wedding of their nephew, David Gabrielson. From there they covered the city of New York including all 168 steps of the Statue of Liberty, the Terrytown home of Washington Irving, the historical spots of Riiladelphia, the battlefield at Gettysburg, and much of Washington, D.C. including the White House. They followed a route home through West Virginia, Kentucky and through Mexico, Missouri where they did visit the John Gabriel- sons. The last stop on the way was at West Brahctii'iowa"af iJi^' Hoover Park. But of all this would you be willing to bet Joyce will remember longest: Catching the bride's bouquet which included a New York custom of being presented the bride's garter by the young man who caught it The Gabrielsons were also impressed by the conversations with many people in these states, wherever they happened to be the "man in the street" seemed to be just as unhappy with the Great Society's poverty program as they are in Iowa. Mrs. Art Hix and family and Mr. and Mrs. Timer Harms and family enjoyed an Iowa vacation when they joined Mr. Hix in the Mississippi River area where he is with a road construction company and they all toured the many sites of interest in our own state, One family left town this summer as Mr. and Mrs. Al Witmus and children moved to Marshalltown where he has a job. iinimmninitimiiiirufliiininiiiii SWEA-EAGLE Mrs. Kenneth Brone* iHi!iiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiHiitiii:iniiiiiiiiiuuuniiDiiiii<nni^ Mrs. Dennis Guerdet underwent major surgery Wednesday morning at Holy Family Hospital. Danny, 8 months, is at the home of his grandparents, the Leo Guerdets. The Leo Guerdets and Clarence Weises joined the Albert Paviks at their cottage on Fox Lake, Sunday for a picnic dinner and to spend the day. Johnnie and Michael Tobin attended the Twins baseball game Sunday at the "Twin Cities" along with Jim Brock and sons, Ringsted. The Arnold Duers recently moved into their new home at their farm in Eagle township. Sister Sharon Sullivan of Holy Cross and Mrs. James Jensen and Timmy of Ames, are spending the week at the parental Francis Sullivan home. They and the Sullivans were Sunday supper guests at the Bill Sullivan home. Fairmont. The William Gies, Sr. have been making frequent trips to the Fairmont Community Hospital to visit their daughter-in-law, Mrs. William Gies, Jr., who is a patient there with back trouble. Mrs. BUI Cole, Sr. of East Chain is caring for the Gies children, who are her grandchildren. Mr. and Mrs. William Gies, Sr. visited in St. Paul, Minn, two days last week at the home of his brother, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Gies.
