On Way To Sexton For Visit, 5 Hurt In Mishap SEXTON - i\n accident near Des Moines brought home to Sexton residents the terrible results of "just a car accident." Mr. and Mrs. Junior Ray Hooper of Mountain Home, Arkansas, were on their way to spend their vacation with Mrs. Hooper's mother, Mrs. Nell Opheim of Sexton. Rounding a curve at 45 miles an hour the station wagon slipped off the edge of the highway and attempting to bring it back, Mrs. Hooper lost control of the vehicle and it swerved across their two lanes of highway, the median, and the other two lanes of traffic before being stopped. Fortunately no other car was involved and their own car remained upright but the family still sustained the following injuries. Mr. Hooper has abroken leg, loss of teeth, broken jaw and will undergo surgery to re«| build his nose. Mrs. Hoopeir was severely bruised and daughter Susan has four broken ribs and a skull fracture. The two sons, Steve and Scott, escaped with only bruises but the baby was returned to the hospital after he was brought to his grandmother's home and x- rays have revealed broken ribs and skull fracture. Mr. Hooper, Susan and the baby are hospitalized at Methodist hospital in Des Moines and Mrs. Hooper will remain with them until the children can be released so they can join the boys here at Mrs. Opheims. It will no doubt be a number of weeks before they will all be able to return to their home in Arkansas because of a small accident at a very moderate speed in comparison to the average on the highway today. - o • < : The< annual -Wise family reunion ; was" held at Clear Lake THURS Thru SAT.

Mrs. Art Hix and family visited at her mother's home at Forest City on Sunday and Mrs. Hix visited with her step-father, Jim Poplslcle who Is In serious condition after being hospitalized for the past month. While there the family also received word that Mrs. Mix's brother, Frank Smith, had suffered a heart attack and was hospitalized at Columbus, Ohio, where he Is an engineer. The Smith family had visited here this spring* The Sexton Friendly Club held their annual kid's picnic at Crystal Lake last Thursday and the outing was well-named as four adults and 18 "kids" attended this year. There were no complaints from the kids as there was the usual amazing variety of food and plenty of it and it was a perfect day for swimming. After a July vacation for the adults to recover, the next meeting will be the last Thursday of August at the home of Mrs. Martin Mlmbach. They haven't struck oil yet I But the people around town with kids can tell when they hit another new layer of "sand" in the Don PeCoy's well by the color of the dirt to be washed off the kids at night. The Sexton ball field has been put to good use lately but if the kids keep recruiting all those grown-ups to fill In the teams the -field Js going to have to be expanded to get the left fielder out of the cornfield. The Dalmatian who took up residence at Sexton has passed on because of an accident on the highway instead of the usual fate of strays around here. But the remaining strays will no doubt be meeting their end In some way If surrounding farmers continue to catch them running livestock. Last word from Albert Tech was that Elmer was getting along fine and able to be up and around at the hospital and hopefully he would be home this week although planning to spend a few days with his sister at Britt flrst.
