(la.) U>p*f 6*s Maine* thimdoy, July 21, 1955 Sexton Getting Its Quota Of Salesman Calls By The Village Gossip Sfcxlon—Algona's efforts to eliminate the traveling salesman ."perns to be driving them out to the country. Sexton has been visited by everything from pretty girl? 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 rlean 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 blamed was Mr and Mrs John Jennings. Accompanied by their daughter and her husband, Mr and Mrs Leo Sabin, of Algona, they drove tc Emery, Wis. over the weekend t( visit another daughter, Mr and 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 was going. Reports say he was seen heading north with all his fishing tackle; along. Joan Ward is the btest 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 luck closer to home. Roy Hansen was able to 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 for the fourth with twenty-five attending. Other visitors at the Jennings home during the week were Mrs W. E. Patton and Mrs Mary Stainbrook 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 dinne>r 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 Stratum is selling an assortment of brooms and napkins for the Doan Church Aid. The loud crash the other even- ing wasn't very serious, just ;i local riders motoneyelo taking uff on its own. If the 5 Ophrim children look a little weary this week it's because they just returned from church camp at Okoboji. Mrs Fred Soefeldt of Wesley deserves a little sympathy. Mr. Sepfeldt is a checker enthusiast and also a bee keeper so you can imagine the long wait she has when Mr Sepfeldt and L. A. Copp get-together at the depot.
