Final Tribute For Mack Wise Of Sexton SEXTON - A number of residents heard from Mrs. Mack Wise the past week. She is now living with her son, Dale Culbertson in Des Moines, but plans to leave in the near future for her daughter's home in California, perhaps to stay permanently. Her farewell to Sexton was a poem she wrote in memory of her late husband which expresses not only her feeling but that of the community in their loss. SEXTON IS NOT THE SAME Sexton is not the same anymore Without Mack there to keep the store, The friendly warmth doesn't exist somehow, Some customers that were, don't come now. The bell doesn't ring as it used to do, The coming and going has slowed to few. Older customers who loved dear Mack, Come in and look, but don't come back. No longer do kids, come in and hear A cheery voice say "hello dere"; They miss all this, and even more, When they come for a treat at the store. Our little village is hurt and sad, Many hearts bruised and feel very bad. Someone is gone so many adored, Gone forever, to dwell with the Lord. Folks come in with a solemn face, And know at once, it's not the same place, Many of Mack's very dear friends Can't bear the gloom, so the visit ends. Though shelves are filled, the store looks bare, And a sense of sadness fills the air, Mack isn't there to call our name, Yes, it's true; Sexton is not the same. - o - HOSPITALIZED There seems to be an extra ration of bad news this week. Nick Eischen, operator of the local station, has entered the hospital at Mason City in serious condition with the possibility of surgery being required. After becoming ill during the night, Art Olsen was returned to the hospital at Iowa City. Mrs. Gordon Davidson has returned to the hospital at Britt where she is in serious condition. - o - Visitors at the Art Hix home this week were Lois Smith and a friend. Miss smith of Forest City is a sister of Mrs. Hix. She is looking forward to the travel plans in her future after graduating from college as she has passed her physical and has been accepted into the Air Corps as a second lieutenant. The Air Corps must give its college enlistees some mighty special treatment, as a major came all the way from Des Moines just to make out the papers. A couple of very talkative evenings were enjoyed by the Glenn Gabrielsons. They entertained the Warren Hummels of Westminster, Calif., and also enjoyed an evening with them at the John Claudes in Algona. Since the Hummels have been "home" for Tim Claude and Kenyon Gabrielson while they are in California, both sets of parents were very anxious to hear how the boys were really doing the first time "on their own." The boys are in charge of the apartment house while the Hummels are here. The boys will be leaving for home about the middle of March and so it won't be too much of a shock to the hometown, Kenyon's hair has turned quite pale during his California stay.

Kretzschmar, Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, State University of Iowa College of Medicine, is the 1966 volunteer cru- sade chairman for the American Cancer Society's Iowa Division* He will speak at a meeting 01 Estherville, March 15, at p. m. in the City Hall.
