ft-Algana (la.) Upper D>s Mdinei Thursday, Sept. 8, 1955 Signs Point To Summer's End In Sexton Area By The Village Gossip Sexton — One Htrn of summer's end is tho K'turn of some local housekeepers. Gene Cink. James nnd Mike ;md Joe Cink took in the hall grime.' and other altrae- tions in Chicago reeenlly and then visited al Frankfort. 111. Mrs Gertrude Valentine returned home with them to be chief cook at the Joe Cink home. Her granddaughter, Ann Eristrom. of Frankfort also came for a week's visit. While here they all visited the West Bend Grotto. The dust is starting to fly at the Goeder's home now that Bill's sister. "Aunt Marie" has come baek. Guess the ladies don't believe a couple of bachelors can clean house right. While Ralph Yanser was on a fishing vacation Mrs John Mahoney of Algona took care of his father. Joan Ward visited a week at Colo with her grandparents. Mr and Mrs Wilford Ward and Melvin were there for the weekend while Mr Ward put in two hot days at the State Fair. Since it is his first year, Sammy Prew has looked forward to starting school. Mothers of school age children will understand Mrs Frew's comment that she felt pretty sad about it all. Starting school seems to mean they aren't babies anymore. The newest member of Kirschbaum and sons arrived at St. Ann hospital Aug. 26—Roger, son of Mr and Mrs Leo Kirschbaum, weighed in at 9 Ib. and 7 oz. He is being eagerly awaited at home by his brothers, Kenneth and Allan. Their maternal grandmother is Mrs Elizabeth Mergen of Whittemore. New residents for only two weeks are Mr and Mrs Larsen and family of Marshalltown. He will operate the Sexton depot while Mr L. A. Copp is on vacation. Care of Mr Copp's hound dog, Tony, will be part of the job and maybe the dog won't be locked in the depot overnight so often. A reminder of the good old days was the Conservation Day held at Ingham Lake. Roy Hansen and Con Swanson attended and said it reminded them of the Field days held here before the war. It was done so slowly most people didn't notice the barn on the Krieps place being lowered. Lich- ters of Algonu cut off the bottom and then lowered the top- half onto the foundation. It will bu used for corn storage. Being on a main highway Sexton isn't hard for a stranger to find. After traveling in the east, Mr and Mrs Arthur Nightingale of Fairmont, Minn., came home this way so they could visit with Mrs Julia Taft at the Fred Jennings home. Other visitors were Mrs Mamie Spiker of Titonka and Mr and Mrs Jesse Hunt of Iowa Ft. Dodge Man Named National Moose Leader Paul E. MeCarville, prominent Iowa attorney and former State Senator, was unanimously elected to the highest elective office in the Moose fraternity. Att. MeCarville, of Fort Dodge was named Supreme Governor of the Moose for the ensuing year at the fraternity's international convention held in Philadelphia. He has been a frequent visitor in Algona. The new Supreme Governor has served his f r a t e r nity for more t h a n a quarter century. He has held the following offices in t h e Moose during that time: Supreme Junior Governor; S u p r e m e Prelate: Deputy Supreme Governor: member of the Supreme Council: and district Governor of the Legion of the Moose, the Order's second degree. McCarville was born in Moorland, la., on June 30. 1901, and was educated in the parochial schools of Fort Dodge, getting his law degrees at C'reighton University in Omaha. Nebr. Falls. Mrs Jennings also did some wheelchair traveling, going tovisit with Mrs Taft providing the pushing power. If you should see Johnny Kain setting by a fire on one of his hillsides don't think he is in the dog house. He might be observing an old southern custom of listening to the hounds trailing at night, now that he is boarding a number of coon hounds at his place. Mrs Arch Burger gave her neighbors quite a scare when she fell at her home and cut her forehead. She is fine now and looks good except for the beautiful black eye that came with the bump. Mr and Mrs Julius Heng of Clear Lake and Mrs Vinnie Layman visited at the Glenn Gabrielson home a week ago. Mr and Mrs Gabrielson were to arrive home last week but after their glowing accounts of California maybe they won't want to return to Iowa with a long winter ahead. Mr and Mrs Gus Norte Jr and Joey and Mrs Gus Norte and Charlene of Waterloo visited with relatives at the Max Stratton and Clarence Huff homes. Mrs Norte reported her son, Gene, was injured in a car-train crash in Chicago, but with the aid of modern miracles of medicine he is able to walk again. The Norte family formerly lived on the place occupied by Mr and Mrs Merle Hoover. Mr and Mrs John Jennings accompanied Mr and Mrs Clarence Cannady to Riceville where they visited with old friends, Mr and Mrs Joe McGovern and family. Mrs Jennings attended the wedding of Peggy Palton and Richard Lallier at Whittemore. Mrs Ralph Parsons and family visited at the John .Tonnincs home and the children visited with former friends here. Mr and Mrs Martin Mimbach and the Gabrielson children visited with Mr and Mrs Wesley Dutton in Algona. Hi Jinks Devoled lo "BeftSnd The Scenes" Items From Algona High School. The "doors open lo all who wish lo learn" opened last week, and school off to its usual snappy start witli an assembly. State Student Council Secretary and AHS Student Council President Cheryl VandeiWaal included in her welcome to the students a quote from the National Student Council Convention designed to put students on the right track: "Choose your rut well. You'll probably be in it all year." * * * It did take a while for the students to quiet clown and resign themselves to the fact that school is here to stay. Quote from a study hall teacher trying to quell the noise: "Be quiet. Remember, there's a lady sick in LuVerne." *' « * It's obvious that the school has an appreciation for good literature. You can tell by that girl bent industriously over a copy of "True Confessions." <t f * Believe it or Not Dept. — With the weather at the beginning of the school year threatening to be as hot as the American League pennant race. Miss Miller threatened to wear bobby sox if the hent continued. * * * The Back fo School in Bermudas gang turned out in force with their shorts or skirls and knee socks. All the school needs now is a course in yodeling and a mountain to climb. * * * Davy Crockett lovers will re- joicc at the news that the AHS marching band is dedicating the program at the Emmetsburg game tomorrow night to the man from Tennessee (or is it North Carolina?). To Be Group Leader Wendell Christenscn. Wesley, is among the 300 Iowa State College upper classmen who have been invited to return to the campus lo act as group leaders during "Freshman Days" at Iowa Slate. Chrislensen will represent the Division of Agriculture. Each group leader will be assigned 20 new students. MACHINE AGE Postal carrier Arnie Robinettc, of LeMars, found a way to make his burden easier during the heat wave recently. He mounted his mail sack on a golf cart, and pulled it on his daily rounds.
