Plenty Going On At Sexton During Week SEXTON - After a quiet summer when most of the able- bodied kids spent their time in the bean fields or detasseling corn with all the grown-up help they could recruit, the action picked up around Sexton the other evening. In spite of the amazing collection of brand new bicycles in town, not one was involved, just a farmer from north of town pulling out on the highway. In the long run, Elmer Phillips suffered the most damage. In avoiding the farmer, a red Mustang took to the ditch and removed the Phillips' front fence. Elmer has his excuse to take the rest down now, but Ruth has a better argument to fix it up the next time the side of the house might go. Strangers passing through may think it the scene of one of those weekend fatalities for as one of the kids said afterward, you can see the screech marks all the way down the road, but for local folks it just provided a new topic of conversation. - o - Perhaps after no news for so long, regular readers are wondering - did the Don PeCoys ever discover a vein of water, so it's good to report success at last. Not only is it piped into the house, but the PeCoys made good use of their new wealth of water by building a new sidewalk around their place. But don't think we've heard the last of that drill around town, the fellows running it have gotten to like the community in the past year and have only moved out a mile north to the Evert Steven's to start another search. - o - After a long summer of worry about the many local people in and out of the hospital, there is more good news. Elmer Phillips came through an ulcer attack and a Ft. Dodge hospital visit in fine shape and is ready to go on a few more fishing trips before winter closes in. Elmer Tech is home at last after almost two months at a Mason City hospital including a return trip before he even made it all the way home. It's nice to see him looking so well and feeling like visiting around once more. August Kirschbaum also looks a lot better since he was able to put that cane away after a trip to the hospital. The only remaining patient isCoraHansen who entered the hospital for a check-up after a fall at home. A badly broken hip was found and she remains in serious condition with generally failing health. Mr. and Mrs. Max Strattonand Dickie were able to make that long-planned trip back home from California and arrived in Iowa just in time to attend a Stratton family reunion at Waterloo. They spent a Sunday at Mallard at a gathering at the Darwin Proch- askas and tried to call on all their old neighbors and friends in the Sexton area. Another Sexton "resident" returned this summer and is making her home in Algona after visiting in California and Des Moines. Mrs. Mack Wise even took a subscription to the paper to keep up with the Sexton folks and hoped to see her name included in the news so former neighbors would stop in an see her. Sorry about the delay, Metta, but welcome home anyway. Some of the quiet around town isn't just because of school starting. A number of the mothers have also gone to work. Mrs. Don PeCoy has returned to full time work at Van's Cafe, Mrs. Art Hix is putting in more hours on her cosmetics selling and Mrs. Clarence Huff has started afternoons as secretary at Trinity Lutheran church. Both the Thomson girls will be leaving this weekend for Morningside College at Sioux City, with Mary in the last year with plans to become a biology teacher, while Judy will be starting her first year. Kathy Pruisman will also be the last of the Frank Pruisman family to leave home when she enters business school at Mason City, but until she graduates and lands a job expect to see quite a bit of Kathy. She will be spending her weekends at home. Home again this year and just in time for school are the Perry Lowmans.who spent a few weeks traveling in Canada on the way to Oregon to visit their daughter and Mrs. Lowman's mother in Portland. Mr. and Mrs. Lee Lucas are visiting Mary McMahon during their leisurely trip through the midwest. Mrs. Nell Opheim has heard from her family at Mountain Home, Ark., and sounds like some mighty nice people live there, too. After spending the summer here recuperating from their auto accident, Mr. and Mrs. Junior Ray Hooper found their house and yard well taken care of and the kitchen stocked with food for their arrival home. They had all recovered amazingly well from the numerous injuries although Mr. Hooper returnedhome on crutches and will remain on them for several weeks. Since there is a possibility of some stiffness, he has been assigned a desk job at the phone company. The Labor Day weekend brought out a lot of travelers. Guests at the Elmer Phillips' were his niece and nephew, Mr. and Mrs. Earling Williamson of Lyle, Minn. Mr. and Mrs. Leo Thomsen spent the weekend at 'Paton visiting his sisters and a nephew who is on his way to Viet Nam. Mrs. Dorothy Dammerell of Chicago spent the weekend with her sister, Mrs. Nell Opheim, and enjoyed a family gathering at the Herman Wise home at Wesley. Mrs. Art Hix spent the weekend at Oelwein where Mr. Hix is spending the summer with a road building crew. It was a busy week for Mrs. Martin Mimbach. She was hostess to the Sexton Friendly Club, with an old friend, Mrs. Brown from Emmetsburg, enjoying the meeting during her visit here. The next meeting will be at the home of Mrs. Roy Hansen with election of officers. Friends called on the Martin Mimbachs on Tuesday evening in honor of their silver wedding anniversary. Rumors still circulate in small towns and the latest is a buyer has been found for one of the older houses which has been empty for some time. A CLASSIFIED AD .
