((«.) Uppw 00* Moinw fhiwdoy, July 21, Sexton Getting Its Quota Of Salesman Calls By The Village Go&sip Sexlon—.Algona's efforts to eli* minate the traveling salesman seems to be driving them out to the country. Sexton has been visited.,by everything from pretty girls with magazines to some very talkative roofing salesmen. With the farm weather some people have been holding a few late evening parties on the elevator's sealed -bin grounds. The elevator manager wouldn't mind so much if they would take their empties, with them so he doesn't have to clean up. Bud Elberts had an unusual excuse for making a trip to Spirit Lake recently. Seems two of his nephews visiting from Kansas City were given'the key to the Elbert cottage and after they left it was found they had the wrong key. There were a few law breakers the past week judging from all the noise the illegal fire crackers were making. About the only couple who couldn't be blamec was Mr and Mrs John Jennings Accompanied by : their daughter and'.her husband, Mr and Mrs Leo Sabin, of Algona, they drove to Emery, Wis. over the weekend to visit another daughter, Mr anc Mrs William Norland and family. The moving Parsons have done it again as Mr and Mrs Ralph Parsons and family now live in a different home, two blocks north of the jail in Algona. Mr and Mrs Martin Mimbach are a good team to get a iob done. One- example is the nice work done painting Glenn Gabrielson's garage. Francis McMahon has taken his vacation but didn't know where he-Vwas going. Reports say he was seen heading north with all his' fishing tackle along. Joan Ward is the latest measles victim and they are not just the three day kind. It will be o long summer for Mrs Ward if Melvin catches them too. We're not sure if Bud felt like fishing after he got there but another neighbor had much better Juck closer to home. Roy Hansen was able to j bring home a. 6 Ib catfish from the river and he had Wilford Ward along to back up his claim. Mr and Mrs Bob Kelley and family spent Sunday assisting with the open house of Mrs Kelley's parents. Mr and Mrs Orville Johnson of Jolley celebrated their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary. Since. Mrs Fred Jennings can't get out, her brothers and sisters brought the picnic to the Jennings •home 1 for the fourth with twenty-five attending.- Other visitors at the Jennings home during • the week were Mrg W. E. .Patton and Mrs Mary Stainbrbok of Whittemore and Mr and Mrs Robert Ringsdorf of Titonka. The new family around town for the week were Mr and Mrs Harold Taft of Ames visiting here with his mother, Mrs Julia Taft at the Jennings home. Mr and' Mrs Don Prew are keeping up the summer reunions }by going to a picnic dinner at the Call Park given by Mrs Frew's mother's family. There is more than one Copp in railroad work as the "kid brother" of the local depot agent is now visiting here. He has done better than follow an example as V. R. Copp of Springfield, Mo. is consulting engineer with the Frisco line. Also visiting is a sister, Mrs James Grant of Homewood, Illinois. All the salesmen in town aren't strangers as Mrs Max Stratton is selling an assortment of broomt. and napkins for the Doan Church Aid. The loud crash the other even- ing wasn't very serious, just a local riders motorcycle taking off on its qwn. If the Opheim children look a little weary this week it's because they just returned from church camp at Okoboji, Mrs Fred Seefeldt of Wesley deserves a little sympathy. Mr. Seefeldt is a checker enthusiast and also a bee keeper so you can imagine the long wait she has when Mr Seefeldt and L. A. Copp gel-together at the depot. .
