The Leader office has moved into new quarters and everything is one huge mass of disorganized confusion. All this week electricians, plumb ers and carpenters have been stumbling over each other t -\ ing to get everything in operation so the paper could come out on time Services held Wednesday For Mrs. F. B. Claxton Funeral services for Mrs. Forrest B. Claxton were held Wednesday, June 25 from Hie First Methodist church in Fayette, with the Rev. Jerry Wolcott officiating. Ruth Christine Dubbcrt was born June 15, 18W. at l.riu-ens, Iowa. Early in her childhood she moved to Fayette, where her father was on the faculty of Upper Iowa university. Later the family moved to Cedar Falls where she obtained most of her education, and was g -aduated from Iowa State Teachers college. After teaching for two years at Adair, Iowa, she was married to Forrest D. Cl.ixton at Cedar Falls on June 12. 1918. Thereafter, except for tinii- spent with her husband in military servue, she lived he-i 1 ttititv li r e in Kayette. She was vitally inti'irstrd in people and because »f this she was very active in many u/ganlzntions. She was a member of the First Methodist church where she had served as n -gunist and an active member of the 1 Women's Society of Christian Seivice, of which she was a P;ist Presid( nt and recipient of the 1 i'o Membe'ship pin. In the Ord • of the Kast.-rn Star she was a Pa t Grand officer and District instructor, in addition to having beoi Wo thy Matron in her local chapt-'". AITTIII; the other organizations in which she was actively interested were P.E.G., Shakespeare' Viub, American Association of Univers'ty Women, Fayette Woman's club, and American Legion auxiliary. She was interested in many things. Music was important in her life, and she taught and played the piano from her early youth. She was interested in anything of beauty, whether made by man or nature. She appreciated the flowers and birds, and dearly loved the scenery of Northeast Iowa. She was interested in everything and everyone about her, and desirous of helping wherever she was needed. She is survived by her husband, Forrest B. Claxton; one son, Forrest B. Claxton, Jr., of Dallas, Texas; and one brother, Karl E. Dubbert of Rochester, Minn. A daughter, Barbara Ann, preceded her in death. Those who were here to attend the funeral were from: Oelwein, West Union, Randalia, Viola, Clear Lake, Cedar Falls, Green Lake, Wis., Quinnesee, Mich., Wahpeton, N. Dak., Fergus Falls, Minn., Iowa City, Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, Britt, Clermont, Mason City, Guttenberg, Houston, Minn., Decorah, and Maynard. as usual. And the editor has been making more frequent trips to the medicine cabinet for Iranquilizer pills in order to avoid a complete nervous break-down. In the moving process numerous things were unearthed, the possession of which had been completely forgotten. And more numerous things have been misplaced, most of wlii h art 1 Deeded in the everyday operation of the plant. Moving of any household or business is always quite n chore. But moving a newspaper plant is more so, because there are thousands and thousands of pieces, all of which must be in a cretain place for efficient operation. Kven Die type Ikv have their own particular spot, and after they have become accustomed to iK-'ing in one spot for years, n sudden move leave's them bewildered and slightly annoyed at having to take up new housing. They are no doubt the cause of many things being lost or misplaced, and until they are completely settled the plant will remain in a turmoil. And to make matters worse a holiday fulls on the first'press day in the new plant, giving the editor and staff less time than usual to prepare the edition. But, as the old saying gws. lime waits for no man, nnd the presses will roll on schedule. Due to the difficulty in locating essential items, several substitutions may be made in this issue. And due to the hurry and scurry to meet the holiday deadline some- things may be out of place. So if one ad is printed on top of another or the corners of the letters are turned up or down, the entire situation will be remedied. In the meantime business will go on as usual in the new building formerly owned by Ralph Mc- Lt'ese. All news stories and ads will be accepted as long as the> toilet tissue holds out. room, classroom space, offices for faculty and staff members as well as a dormitory over the foyer to accommodate male students. Plans call for the completion of the gymnasium in the fall of 1963. Campaign solicitation has started in most areas of the nation. The incoming results are very encouraging with the first 69 pledges totaling $50,000. There are approximately 5,000 prospects with 3,500 residing -in Iowa. President Eugene E. Garbee, Upper Iowa university, announced today that the date for taking bids on the Dorman Memorial Gymnasium would be moved to July 12 at 2 p. m. Dr. Garbee said the change was due to a request from a group of contractors who attended a pre-bid conference held yesterday. The new gym will be one of the most modern facilities of its kind in the midwest. MOVING DAY AT THE LEADER.
