The new "factory" at the local elevator is making good progress and should be finished soon if the weather cooperates. In spite of the rumors of a number of workers needed, there's a better chance that Leo Thomsen will take care of the operation all alone. There was good reason for another local business place attracting so many youngsters the past week. The Eischen station had on display a king-si zed lollypop and only those under 12 could sign up for it. The boy who won the extra Christmas present was Ricky Rosenmeyer. Too bad Charlie couldn't take advantage of all that boy power to help fix up the new home he is working on next to the John Jennings. Sexton folks think their neighbors are pretty special people and they had added proof. Jack Wederquist was one of three employees of the Soil Conservation Service in the state of Iowa chosen to attend a special month of school at Lincoln, Nebr. in January. He was picked by the district office in Ft. Dodge because of the outstanding Job he has done on engineering projects in this area. Mrs. Nell Opheim enjoyed Christmas dinner the way all mothers should be able to. She was a guest of the children, Mr. and Mrs. Bob Schumacher and family of Remsen and Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Opheim and family of Fairmont, who took her out to dinner this year. And speaking of hard working elevator operators, they don't have to work so hard after they get away from Sexton. For proof, take at look at Tom Arn- dofer and the 30-some pounds he has added since taking over the elevator at Mallard.
