^ Gala Party At Sexton Elev. SfcXf ON - The Federal North Iowa drain Company at Sexton, managed by Leo Thomsen, decided It was aboat time there was a party on the west side of town and as usual a grand time was had by all. It was called an Appreciation Day for elevator customers and it turned out to be one for Leo also as he greatly appreciated the many who joined him from 9 to 4 on Thursday for Betty Rose SPRING-INTO-SUMMER STATUS COAT So good, Betty Rose does it for you a short version, to wear with everything this season — and on. A real status symbol ! Elegant, new textured fabric is cotton/rayon, bonded to cotton — ideal weight when nights are cool and when you're traveling. Easy-fo-accessorize colors: Oatmeal. 10 to 16. $40.00 ham sandwiches and coffee. Door prizes were given. - o - There is a hospital in Mason City that certainly appreciates the patients it gets from Sexton, they just won't let them come back home again. Latest to experience this hospitality is the Sexton postmistress, Mrs. Nell Opheim. She went for just a checkup a week ago Tuesday and hadn't been heard from by Sunday so Mr. and Mrs. Clair Hovey made a trip to do some checking up, too. They found Mrs. Opheim enjoying her complete bed rest with no bad news from the many tests and X-rays completed so far and hopefully planning to return home early this week when all the tests were completed. Our sympathy of the week goes to Mrs. Don PeCoy as the mother of three girls who not only served as hostesses to the Irvington Ideals 4-H Club on Saturday but also gave demonstrations. Probably only another 4-H mother would understand what the past week has been at the PeCoys and will they ever eat carrot curls again? Mr. and Mrs. Leo Thomsen attended "The Sound of Music" at the Algona Theatre in celebration of their wedding anniversary, this week. They are at the awkward number of years for celebrating - too many to still be making a big occasion of each one and not enough to make it one of the great occasions. No doubt making this an especially happy one was the news their daughter, Judy, had made the Dean's List at University of Northern Iowa, Cedar Falls, and was honored at a banquet given by her dormitory for honor students. Inquiry brought the information that what looked like a disastrous fire on the west side of town was set on purpose. GlennGabrielson was getting into the spirit of our early spring by getting an early start on his lawn mowing the easy way. The state highway department must have really been affected by our spring, too. Are they really taking down snow fences in the middle of March? Those fences may be needed yet, to keep the drifting farms off the highway. Mrs. August Kirschbaum should have acted on her woman's intuition last week. She went to town with Mrs. Leo Kirschbaum for a short shopping trip although she had a feeling she was going to have company. Shortly after she left her two brothers and sisters-in-law from the Britt area came for the afternoon. Mr. Kirschbaum served as host until her return much later. Don't be surprised if there is a row of cabbages growing down Sexton's main street this summer. If s going to be the richest ground in the area by the time all the farmers are done hauling their supply of fertilizer from the elevator in those assorted open vehicles. -60th- Mr. and Mrs. C. C.
