DGPQi ALGQNA, IOWA SEXTON - Sexton's newest business had a more than standing room only crowd for the grand opening Friday night. A total of 149 guests had signed up by 9 p. m. when the party was just getting started at Ed Eischen's remodeled station and new cafe. Sending flowers for the occasion were the Kirschbaum Garage, Sexton Store, the Federal North Iowa Grain Co., and a group known only as The Sexton Boys. Providing music for the evening was a new combo with a big future, composed of Virgil Bierl, George and Ed Lickteig, Russ Cole and Frank Hrubes. Guests who pitched in to help in the kitchen were Mrs. Peter Kirsch, Mrs. Ed Eischen, Mrs. Maurice Eischen and Mrs. Art Hix with Charles Colwell, Dick Grandgenett and Emil Listekow serving the crowd and Art Hix on patrol duty. Among the sponsors of the prizes for the evening's drawing were Dick Grandgenett, Dick Lickteig, Roy Hansen, Oscar Froehlich, Larry May, Dave Seller, Kirschbaum Garage, Emil Listekow, Don Bormann, Al Bormann, Elmer Youngwirth, Don Carroll, Ralph Simon, Roger Arndorfer, the Colony Inn and Monsanto Fertilizer. Winners in the drawing were the following, for a case of beer each: Irene Klein, Irene Bierl, Don Bormann, Clarence Elbert, Marie Jackson, Gary Green, Frank Hrubes, Beverly Colwell, George Lickteig, Jan Ruger, Bob Maahs and Frank Youngwirth. Cash winners were R. Rosenmeyer and Palmer Rurup, $5, and Larry May, $10. Gas winners were John Kain and Don Bormann, $2; Bonnie Esser, 25 gallons; Si Simon, 25 gallons; Earl Zeigler, 50 gallons. Linda Froehlich won a knife set and Jerry Kisch, a case of Pepsi. Since the cafe was covered with wall-to-wall people on the night of the opening, a description of the new building might be in order. The interior walls are finished in a medium brown wood paneling with matching dark brown tables, with bright orange chairs providing a touch of color. The floor is beige tile and the curtains a modern design of gold, brown, white and orange. So, at last the town has an appealing place for a passerby to stop for lunch. - o - The Sexton Friendly Club meeting for January has been cancelled after being postponed, as the hostess, Mrs. Leo Thornsen, had planned to go to a wedding last weekend. But things just didn't work out as she is the latest victim of a mighty strong virus. The club meeting was to be held Saturday as the hostess works during the week in Algona and not a weekend meeting because the club secretary happened to win a case of refreshments last week at the grand opening. The February meeting will hopefully be held on the joined other members of Mrs. Andre's family, the Louis Lammers of Graettinger, at dinner Saturday evening at Sioux Valley. The dinner honored their parents, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Lammers, on their 40th wedding anniversary. Sunday School classes will resume again Sunday morning, Feb. 4, at S:45 a. m. at the Blakjer Lutheran church following a month's vacation. Mrs. Ordean Kabrick is the Sunday School superintendent.

Mrs. Nell Opheim is making a recovery from a week at home with pneumonia, but she and Glenn Gabrielson will both have to do some shopping for clothes to fit their new slender sizes. Glenn is making a good recovery from his surgery at Rochester as long as he follows orders not to lift anything heavier than his shoes. It will probably take the longest to get him unspoiled after all the attention. The Gabrielson's daughter and family, Mr. and Mrs. Wally Murphy and Mark, came from Cedar Falls for the weekend. Glennda is now teaching at Janesville while Wally is employed in an abstract office in Waterloo. Even the accident victims are making good recovery as David Hix looks much better after being cut on the face by a flying sheet of steel while on the job in Algona. It required 12 stitches, but healed quickly if only the black eyes would go away as. easily. Ed Eischen has found a lunch counter isn't even a safe job as he seriously cut a finger while slicing cheese I Mrs. Art Hix accompanied Mrs. Roger Anderson of West Bend to Grinnell where they visited the Val-Hi dog kennels. Mrs. Anderson raises boxer dogs at her West Bend farm home. Mrs. Glenn Gabrielsonaccom- panied Mr. and Mrs. Evert Steven to an Eastern Star meeting at Charles City where the Steven's daughter, Mrs. Robert Kiess, was installed as Associate Conductress.
