Newest Sexton Resident Feted By Neighbors SEXTON - Gina Marie Hovey, the newest Sexton resident all the way from Korea, must think American life is just one big round of parties. She arrived at her new home with the Clair Hoveys just in time to take in Halloween Tricks or Treats, which she greatly enjoyed. She has been guest of honor at two "baby showers" the past week. The first was given by the ladies of the Baptist church of Algona and the second by her new neighbors in Sexton. Gina is enjoying her new life so thoroughly she has begun using the American language to express herself. - o - After finishing basic training in the Navy and a leave at home, Tom Gatton has returned to his base in California where he has started training as a medic. His brother, Joe, has also finished basic in the Army and been assigned to Fort Rucker, Ala., but without benefit of a trip home. He is making strong plans to spend Christmas here with the family. Joe has been assigned to a fire-fighter unit for further training. The boys have also hinted pretty strongly they are a little homesick and letters from back here do help. John Stratton was quite sick over the weekend with an infection but with the help of modern drugs was in shape to enjoy a lot of surprise company. His sister, Mrs. Charles Prochaska and niece, Mrs. Darwin Prochaska stopped in on their way from their home in Mallard while going to visit another sister, Mrs. Floyd Hatch in Northwood. Mrs. Hatch has been confined to a nursing home there after suffering a severe stroke this summer while visiting here from California. On Saturday evening Mr. Stratton's sister, Mrs. Gus Norte and Mr. and Mrs. Virgil Norte of Waterloo stopped on their way to Fenton where they planned to visit Mrs. Norte's relatives. On Sunday evening, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Stratton stopped to see his father after visiting Mrs. Stratton's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Walter Will in Sibley. Mrs. Will was to enter the hospital for a week for treatment of a lung condition. Mr. and Mrs. Martin Mimbach are saving their final farewells this week before leaving happily after the latest snow flurry for their winter in Arizona. They have a one-way train ticket, not because they won't be back in the spring, but they are just not sure there will still be trains running six months from now as hard as it is to get connections anymore. The nicest thing about the last snow this week was seeing Mrs. August Kirschbaum out sweeping it off the front steps. It's one good sign things are back to normal after she has spent most of the fall recovering from surgery. Corn picking is well along and looks so much easier with the big equipment in the fields. But it probably wasn't a great joy to Evert Steven as he is getting the job done with some mighty uncomfortable ribs after a fall across a beam in the corn crib. That still doesn't explain that pretty sling Mrs. Steven has been wearing on one arm and we just refuse to believe the reason she is giving. At least one person doesn't believe the small town is done for. Ed Eischen is confidently building on a large addition to his station along the highway to make a mighty comfortable social gathering place for the fellows in the long winter ahead. Ed would still like to know who started that nasty rumor he was building a dance hall! In spite of the looks of it all there isn't a new business in town. Those big trucks parked here now are just being driven by Don PeCoy in his new job with an Algona trucker. The Sexton Friendly Club managed a grand turn-out for the October meeting so that much business could be completed. New officers are: president, Mrs. Clarence Huff; vice president, Mrs. Don Mains; and secretary-treasurer, Mrs. Art Klein. The club's annual dinner out was set for Thursday, Nov. 30 at the cafe in Burt. Members are to notify Mrs. Nell Opheim before the first of that week as to whether or not they plan to attend. There will be a Dec. 14 meeting at the home of Mrs. Clarence Huff so that ten boxes can be packed for the patients at the Woodward School. All members are to bring cookies, candy and a suitable gift from the list sent by the school. Anyone interested in becoming a new member should contact one of the officers before the new yearbooks are made.
