Nominate Two A.H.S. Students For Overseas American Field Service President, James Andersen, announces that the selection committee for the local AFS chapter have selected Rich mack and Max Laird as candidates for the Americans Abroad Program. Rich is a senior and Max a junior at Algona High School. The Americans Abroad Program was started in 1950 by AFS exchange students, who, once they had returned home, wanted to offer young Americans the kind of opportunity which they had been provided in the U.S. Host families accept AFS students into their homes voluntarily; they are not paid. In all but the English speaking countries, Americans Abroad students must commit themselves to intensive language study. The selection committee from the local chapter included Elgin Allen, James Andersen, Mrs. Floyd Bode, Mr. and Mrs. Dale Laws, Debbie Laws, Richard Schneider, Mrs. Mitch Taylor and Mrs. Rex Taylor. New Arrival At Sexton ForHoveys Sexton — The newest member of this community is truly being brought by a big bird. Little Gina Marie, age 16 months, will arrive at the Chicago airport from Korea Friday night and will be met by her new parents, Mr. and Mrs. Clair Hovey. They plan to return home immediately so that Gina may become accustomed to her new home and meet her family who will soon teach her the English language. There's nothing like a full week to keep your mind off your worries! Mrs. Hovey will also be hostess to the Sexton Friendly Club Thursday at 2p.m. There will be an election of officers as there were not enough members present at last month's meeting at Mrs. Harold Gattons for a quorum. After a trial of a year of having Monday night meetings, it has been decided to return to Thursday. For one thing, it was difficult for members to make their way home after the night meetings after the sidewalks were rolled up at 8 p.m. Work will be complete on the projects for members of the Woodward home, -o- Mr. and Mrs. Roy Hansenwent to Colo last week to attend the funeral of Mrs. Nellie Weir, who died suddenly following a stroke. Mrs. Weir will be well remembered as a frequent visitor here at the home of her daughter, Mrs. WOford Ward, former long-time resident of Sexton. Mr. and Mrs. Martin Mimbacb are enjoying a few days visit with relatives in Minnesota this week. The trip is just a shakedown cruise in preparation for leaving for their annual winter in Arizona with Mr, and Mrs. L. Taylor Nov. 1. Another generation of little ones has grown up. The latest new members of the Irvington Ideals 4-H Club are JU! Weder- quist, daughter of the Jade Wederqpdsts, and Pat and Pam PeCoy, daughters of the Don PeCoys. Another sure sign its later than you think and Christmas is just around the corner: Fran See- felt delivering the loot from her recent toy party. It just takes grandchildren to keep your weekends busy. Mrs. Nell Opheim spent last weekend with the Bob Schumachers at Remsen and this week entertained Mrs. Bernadine Opheim, Dawn and Johnny at her home here. It takes an out-of-towner to make us appreciate just how good our Upper DesMoines newspaper is. Paul Robison, Vancouver, Wash., spent some time here with his cousins, Mary and Charles McMahon and Mrs. Ambrose Lickteig in Algona. He found the local paper such fascinating reading and commented that the pictures were much better quality than the city paper carried so he took out a subscription while he was here. It was a full house at the McMahons this fall as other visitors have been Ann CPRorke of Phoenix, Ariz.; Mrs. Hugh O*Rorke, Rochelle, fll.; Mrs. Mary Mulry, Omaha; Mrs. Tom Mulry, Emmetsburg and Mr. and Mrs. Charles Hennigan and Gerri of Dallas, Texas. Makes you think there might be some Irish ancestors in the McMahon family. Virginia Klein spent a busy weekend at home here with the Art Kleins. This included a checkup 'for her hand which has not recovered full use after an auto accident last spring. Virginia did get up the nerve to try again after a long wait as the weekend also included the purchase of a new bright yellow carl There have been a lot of doctor visits for the Kleins recently as little Joe Lickteig, son of the Dick Lickteigs, had four stitches above his eye after a fall at home and his grandmother, Mrs. Art Klein, went along for moral support.
