Sexton Bounces To Life After Bitter Cold SEXTON - A few Sexton residents took advantage of the sudden spring thaw to get out for some visiting. Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Phillips are spending a couple of days at a family gathering at Elmer's brother's home in Minnesota. Mrs. Nell Opheim spent the weekend at Remsen with Mr. and Mrs. Bob Schumacher and family. - o A familiar sight around town over the weekend was the Wilford Ward station wagon. Since moving to Norway, Iowa they have taken an apartment and Mrs* Ward has begun a full-time job as bookkeeper for a Norway business. About the time we start asking what happened to Art Olsen he turns up at Iowa city again. Once more one of his one-day checkup trips has turned into a long visit. Mrs. Olsen got a ride to Iowa City for a visit this weekend. Sunday evening callers at the Clair Hovey home were the Jim Zauggs of Algona and Henry Pergande of LuVerne. The big surprise of the week for the family was the visit of Mr. Hovey's brother, Dwayne. He had been flown home from Germany to receive some special army train- Ing and when given a leave decided to drop in on the family unexpectedly. Fred Shilts of Algona and Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Gabrielson accompanied Mr. and Mrs. Everett Steven to an Eastern Star meeting at Corwith Saturday night. This was an initiation meeting after an afternoon of instruction in Eastern star procedure by Mrs. Shilts. A number of residents attended the funeral Saturday for Ed Fitch In Algona. Although 88, Sexton's oldest resident still lived alone and cared for himself and usually walked up town daily. He was found by a neighbor shortly after dying in his sleep Wednesday morning. The heavy fog and slippery roads resulted in a couple of dented fenders Monday morning when a car coming from the north and one turning north met ; at the corner near Eischeh's" i station.' One Sexton boy making the most of his hitch in the Army is Rick Steven. Shortly after being sent to Maryland in the Aberdeen proving grounds area for special school, he joined in a tour through Washington sponsored by the USO. Included were the White House and Kennedy grave sight, but he was most impressed by the guards at the tomb of the Unknown .Soldier, perhaps, because he has been on guard duty a few times. But, who would have thought an Iowa boy would have to go east to find out about snow. Writing about the recent blizzards, he mentioned tanks being used to clear a path for snow plows. He has also forgotten Iowa temperatures as he said it was getting cold at 30 like back home, only when his letter arrived it was closer to 30 below here at home. Next Sunday will be a big day in the Doan area with the celebration of two silver wedding anniversaries at the Doan church during the afternoon. Guests of honor will be Mr. and Mrs. Fred Asa and Mr. and Mrs. Ray Cunningham. The two ladles are sisters.
