During April, the American Cancer Society will be reaching every home with a vital educational pamphlet and to ask for contributions for support of the Society's research, education and service program. Sexton Lady Hosts Club Despite Many Problems MRS. BJUSTROM Mrs. Francis Bjustrom of rural Whittemore today was named chairman of the two-pronged educational and fund-raising cancer crusade to be conducted throughout south Kossuth in April. Announcement of the appointment came from Mrs. Ted Hoover, Jr., chairman of the south Kossuth chapter of the American Cancer Society, who said, "plans are already underway to reach each and every adult resident with life saving information about cancer during the April crusade." The goal is to urge all adults to have regular physical checkups and prompt investigation of any of cancer's seven warning signals. Mrs. Bjustrom is a graduate of Whittemore High School, is a housewife and mother of four children. She is a member of the Good Hope Methodist Church and was Plum Creek township chairman last year for the crusade. Duane Warden, M.D., Council Bluffs gynecologist, is chairman of the Iowa Division's 1968 crusade effort. "Far too many lowans are dying needlessly of cancer," reports Warden. "The current cure rate is approximately one out of every three cancer patients, but there is considerable evidence Find Stolen Truck; Solve Local Break-In A truck owned by Schiltz Electric, Bancroft, and reported stolen the same night as the attempted bank theft at Burt (during the wee hours Tuesday morning), was found by police officers at Mankato, Minn, early Friday. Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst, who had an all-points bulletin out in Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin after the truck theft, was notified Friday that the truck had been found by officers who had put a parking ticket on it. Condition of the truck and its contents, which was wire and conduit, was not learned, but it was to be checked by the FBI before being returned to the owner. Meanwhile, two Algona Juveniles were arrested by Lindhorst and gave statements admitting they broke into Al's Northside Texaco station here the same night. They will be turned over to juvenile authorities for action. A total of $10 was reportedly stolen from a cash box at the station after a rear window was broken so the youths could gain entrance. Gas Customers At Fenton May Pay Bills There North Central Public Service Co., which serves Algona and many towns in surrounding areas, announced this week that residents of Fenton can now pay their gas bills at the Fenton Drug Co. there. Through an arrangement with Paul Eigler, owner of the drug store, payments may now be made there by North Central customers at Fenton. When your thoughts turn to Spring, you can turn to the CHRISCHILLES STORE . . . where you can shop in a Spring-like atmosphere . . . hundreds of yellow daisies to put you in the mood . . . SEXTON - Friendly Club meeting was held at the home of Mrs. John Jennings in spite of the many handicaps the hostess had to overcome. The Jennings had their hands full of looking after the Leo Sabin home while the Sabins were on a trip to Florida and also taking care of things at the Clarence Canaday farm while Mr. Canaday and his bride were on their honeymoon. Then, on one of the Jennings' trips home to check on their own house, disaster struck. Mrs. Jennings found one of the kitchen chairs burning. In her attempt to take the chair outside, it fell, setting fire to the floor and kitchen cupboards. John entered at the right moment and was able to get the fire under control. Mrs. Jennings hadn't planned to, but she entertained the club with a new kitchen floor and new curtains throughout the house as they disintegrated from the effects of the smoke from the fire. In answering the roll call for club on their first sewing project, an example was given to the younger generation on early training. Mrs. Vinnie Laymon related she had put together her first quilt at three years of age. You can't say the club meetings aren't educational. At least one member learned during the discussion that thieves can get by with hiding stolen liquor outside during freezing weather. Those glass bottles won't break because liquor seems to have its own anti-freeze in the form of alcohol. Let's hope Mrs. August Kirschbaum has an easier time being the hostess to the March meeting of the club. - o - The Jack Wederquists may wonder how close they came to having a real housewarming. When only their lights kept going out, an electrician was called to check, but nothing was wrong in the house. Luckily, they didn't give up and a man was called from the light company and he found some mighty hot bare wires where the electric line entered the house from the outside. News from the folks out west for the winter-Martin Mimbach is harvesting his garden crops In Arizona. If we can believe the, signs of spring in Sexton, two robins and Ralph Witham getting his boat and camper ready to go, then we are really going to have that impossible Iowa year of no winter and we can start putting in gardens here. There is a possibility the Mim- bachs may not, return until June this year and the way Iowa springs go, that may be just in time to plant his garden. Just when it looked like the perfect year to organize a campaign to run Glenn Gabrielson for Senator since he is supposed to take it easy for awhile, a flaw showed up in the plan. He won't be able to accept the nomination just because they included Washington, D.C. in their tour of the east coast last spring, and Corrine is not about to make a return trip. She thought the place smelledl Well, at least that is an answer to that city fellow who was complaining about the terrible smell of the Iowa air coming from the farms as he drove through the state.

CO-OPERATIVES PRODUCE ECONOMIC STABILITY IN TODAY'S WORLD it takes more than buildings, stock, land and equipment to operate a farm successfully. IT TAKES ability to put up strong resistance to the cost-price squeeze. COOPERATION protects farm income by helping the farmer keep his costs in line with the prices he receives.
