By The Vilage Gossip Sexton—Friendly Club mem- bei's had ' unuSUal luck fit the Pot Luck dinner at the Bob Kelley home. For once at such an occasion each one brought a different kind of dish. Although the variety was enjoyed the whole afternoon wasn't spent in eating. In spite of a shortage of old-fashioned darning needles a beautiful new quilt was tied for Mrs Kelley. A birthday cake brought by Mrs Glenn Gabriel- sort, was cut in the afternoon in honor of Mrs Art Klein's birthday. Since after 21 the day is remembered and year forgotten there were only 10 candles. Guests were Mrs Orville Johnson of Jolley, Mrs Louis Kelley of Algona and Jo Lickteig. The May 31 meeting will be with Mrs Merle Hoover. The sale of household goods of Mrs Carrie Olsen marked the end of the residence at Sexton of one of the oldest members of this community. Because of poor health Mrs Olsen makes her home in Algona with her daughter, Mrs Leslie Huff. Mrs Huff and Mrs Benschoter were the excellent salesladies in charge Saturday. The latest flu victim spending a few days home from work is Mother-Daughter Banquet Held At St. Benedict Si. Benedict — The St. Bene,- dict school hall was filled at the Mother and Daughter- banquet on the evening, of Wed., April 25 at the 6:30 dinner which was a good one. Father Ernst gave the invocation and Father Cooper of St. Cfecelia's parish was toastmaster. Mrs Wilbur Daley — Grand Regent of the C.D.A. court, gave the welcome. The tribute to the mothers was given in the form of a poem by Ida Mae Kutschara. Two vocal numbers with Mrs Clarence Siemer as accompanist were given, one as a solo, the ither a duet, Jeanne Capesius singing "Autumn Leaves," and Ellen Siemer sang a duet "Little Child." Catherine Seller gave a generalized tribute to the daughters, very ably done. Bonnie Froehlich played two accordion numbers. The address of the evening was given by Father Leo Schumacher. A trio consisting of Donald Froehlich, Ronald Briggs, and Ce- , cil Schilmoeller displayed their j Don Prew. When it was muddy earlier and Francis McMahon parked his neiv car in a dry spot by the depot a few wondered if there was a new depot agent.

Mrs Arthur Klein's happy look wasn't just in honor of her birthday as the Kleins are the latest to start a new home.

Many home garages look like "boxes" set upon the ground Where there is no foundation planting to take away the boxlike effect and blend the structure into the landscape. The garage requires a foundation planting the same as the home. An otherwise beautiful property often can be spoiled without it. Planting the home garage is easy, according to the American Association of Nurserymen. It may require only a few flowering shrubs or evergreens at the fr\>nt corners, where the garage is at the extreme rear, of'the property. Usually, where the garage is part of the house, the house founda- tion planting includes the garage, the planting being an extension of the former. Sometimes a couple of climbing roses or othpr vines one on each side of the garage doors will suffice. In cases where the sides and rear of the garage are visible from the rest of the property a few evergreens and flowering shrubs, or a low tree whose branches may extend over part of the roof, when combined with lower shrubs will tie the structure into the landscape.

Well, you can. The biggest single change you can make does not lie in replacing your furniture or your fabrics, but in changing the room's background color. This, you yourself can do... easily, quickly and inexpensively — with the aid of the countless eye-delighting hues of paint that are now available. Actually, the ceiling, walls and woodwork of an average room can be repainted for less than $10. And as for the time it takes, you'll be surprised how rapidly you can apply the* color ... in a very few hours, at most. Before re-painting a ceiling— or any other surface, for that matter — make sure that all cracks ar.e carefully filled, then smoothed level with tho surface Small hairline cracks can be filled with spackling material. 'It sets very rapidly, so you'll be wise to smooth tho surface before the filling material is quite dry This lessens the amount oi 1 .sanding, you'll need to .do Inter.

Mineral wool batts or blankets aue the material used for the job. Stapling is preferable to hammer and nails because it's faster and easier. The insulation should first be fastened between the floor joisls, i.uin me eaves to the knee walls of the room. Then carry the insulation up between (he knee wall studding, and between the ratters to the collar joists of the room. The insulation should be fastened between the ceiling joisfs and also between the studs of the gable ends. Thick black line shows where Mineral 'wool insulation goes when attic room Is finished for living. Blankets should be fastened every 6 inches for a tight fit. The vapor barrier side of the insulation should always face the heated side of the room. Never carry the insulation all the way to the roof peak. A ventilated area should lie between the celling joists and the roof peak. Electrical Experts Warn "Don't Do It Yourself"! The attempts, by many laymen having only casual knowledge of wiring techniques, to install their own electric wiring has long been a great concern to safety authorities. "A course in first aid doesn't make a doctor'' they say, "so why should a smattering of electrical know-how make an electrician?" They urge, "Engage a professional electrician to diagnose your home's electrical ills, to prescribe the cure, and above all, to make operable your home's wiring system." Electrical contractors and their employees have spent years learning their profession. It .is their business to understand the latest installation techniques. They know every safety requirement of the National Electrical Code. In most communities, their work is inspected by the city or state electrical inspector, or by an inspector for the Fire Underwriters Bureau.
