No one was seriously injured in any of them. However, a number of hogs were killed In a one - vehicle crash. Daniel Wilson Fish, 50, of Rutland was driving a 1960 Ford truck north on Highway 18 a mile and a half north of Cylinder about 7:30 p.m. Saturday. Fish reportedly rounded a curve too fast and the truck swung onto the shoulder of the road, Highway Patrolman Dick Fellin said. The truck then landed in the right ditch, crossed it and ended up on County Road C, according to the officer. It came to rest cross ways on the road. The rear axle and box were torn off. It was loaded with 57 hogs and about 10 of these were killed. Fish was charged with failure to have control of his vehicle. New Name For Ledyard Firm LEDYARD - The Sunray Fertilizer plant at Ledyard began operation under the Hawkeye Fertilizer Corporation name. The Sunray plant has been leased to the Hawkeye Corporation. There will be no personnel changes according to information released by Fred Munyer, manager of the plant here. They will also continue to carry the same line of products as in the past. Sexton Might Put Up New Highway Signs SEXTON - With the beginning of a new club year a number of changes were made in the Sexton Friendly Club. New officers elected at the meeting at Mrs. Roy Hansen's were: President, Mrs. Nell Opheim; vice- president, Mrs. Art Klein; and secretary, Mrs. August Kirschbaum. Because of the number of working women and those with small children, it was decided to try night meetings beginning with the first on Monday evening, Oct. 24 at Mrs. Clair Hovey's. Since the ladles need a reason to be out at night a project has been added to the club agenda. Work will be started on Christmas decorations for the rooms of the nine patients at the Woodward home on the Sexton club list. After much talk about signs to identify Sexton in past years, the ladies decided to do something about it. Mrs. Jack Wederquist and Mrs. Leo Thomsen were appointed to contact whoever necessary for permission to place the signs on the hiway. Just by coincidence those two ladies have husbands who are pretty handy at lettering and carpentering! - o - Visiting Mr. and Mrs. Everett Steven the past week were her uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. Ray Haller of Paradise, Cal. They also visited Mrs. Steven's mother, Mrs. A. Genrich at the Rotary Home, Eagle Grove. They were Very much impressed with how nice it is to retire when they saw the color TV in the lounge, coffee pot always on and Mrs. Genrich's room, complete with her own furniture, making it seem just like home. Mrs. Steven and her brother, Stan Genrich, have also been impressed with the class of entertainment they have just happened to see while visiting their mother. During the fair, the accordionist from the Lawrence Welk orchestra spent an afternoon at the home playing request numbers and visiting all the residents. Also spending an afternoon was a grandson of one of the residents who happened to be a concert pianist willing to present a program. Of course, not to be forgotten is the group of ladies from Eagle Grove who sponsor a regular biugo game with prizes for all at the home. There still seems to be a jinx on anything to do with the PeCoys new well. The jeep digger started last week to make a ditch to connect the Art Hix home and the Eischen station to the deepest water supply in town. It has already snowed in the ditch once and it has stopped at tiie edge of the PeCoys yard all because of a broken chain and delays in repairs arriving. Of course, everybody is waiting for cold weather and end of road crew work so they can all stand and give advice to Art Hix as he digs that ditch by hand this winter! A carload of boys from Sexton learned about the good old days when they spent Saturday afternoon at the Roland Bode's picking a load of popcorn by hand. Of course they don't realize the pay wasn't that good in the good old days of handpicking. It's a good thing Judy Thorn- for 1 -plus a penny Rexall ORIGINAL sen came home for a weekend so the Leo Thomson's found out how well she was getting along her first year at college. Among the things she hadn't included in her letters were her appointment as hall representative, playing piano in a talent review and election as one of four members on the council. After a little inquiry, we found the explanation for Francis Esser slowly moving toward Algona each day along the hillne. He had signed on as helper to a fellow who is digging up the electric poles that were put in after the storm last March. They didn't have time then to treat the bottoms of the poles against decay so the two men have been doing some mighty hard digging this fall to complete the job. If there is going to be a day off from school what better time than v on your birthday was Jill Wederquist's thought. She took advantage of the day by having Pat and Pam PeCoy and JoAnn and Janet Hlx over for a dinner party, although the girls had a habit of calling it supper. Hope folks driving around here have noticed the sudden Increase in trains through town at odd hours of the day and are taking a few precautions while crossing the tracks. Candidate In Talk At Swea City, Oct. 15 Mancil Hurlburt, candidate for the state legislature from Kossuth county, was the guest speaker Saturday evening at the Swea City Legion hall at a meeting held by a woman's group from Harrison, Eagle, Grant and Swea townships. Hurlburt emphasized several points including education, taxes and highways. On the subject of education he said he favored an increase in state aid to the schools, possibly from the state surplus now existing. Hurlburt said that he believed there should be, if there is not at present, a program to eliminate the existing narrow bridges on some state highways, and that the curbing which is still found along many highways, should be removed. He said that Iowa, even with industry, is still an agricultural state and that every possible effort should be made to have rural and small town living made as financially sound as possible, and that the state itself can continue to help in this direction.

Through the years, cooperatives have enlarged the scope of their operations... starting first with retailing of petroleum products, then expanding into wholesaling, refining and production. Cooperative action has helped to maintain the quality of petroleum products, raised standards of service, and has been a factor in restraining the upward trend of prices. i . . '!.•:!..
