Sexton Lays Claim To 'Growingest' Area Town By Sexton Sue SEXTON - While the rest of our great state cries there is no California, this small community has shown what can be done. What other town has doubled in population in the last ten years ? Now the Sexton Boosters club will have to begin a search for an industry to keep our children home. Mr and Mrs Clarence Golwitzer, the newest residents of our city, nave added a great, percentage to the gain. They have five small chil- 1 dren and more, it's if it seems like even because two of the youngsters have the brightest red , hair. ; Mr Golwitzer is employed by Wilford Ward as a driver for one of his grinders. Mr Golwitzer has also been helping out in the evening at the Glenn Gabrielson farm on the edge of 'town. Although Sexton was pretty proud of it's own private boating area, Glenn was probably pretty glad to see Lake Corrine finally dry up as it was putting him behind in his field work. Although Mr and Mrs Palmer Rurup moved to the C. E. Detrick farm house west of Sexton, Palmer must still be getting up mighty early to commute as he still drives the other grinding truck out of the elevator at the "crack if dawn". A big welcome home to some of our gadding residents and a special welcome to the big increase they brought back with them. Mr home where he spent the winter to return to his house in Wesley for a summer of batching. The gang at the elevator can re lax; yes, they will be able to watch a garden grow again this year Mrs Clarence Huff has at last started planting. Seems she was waiting for a nest of baby rabbits in the middle of the garden to get big enough to move on before the lettuce came up. It looked mightly good to see Arl Olsen out hauling beans to the elevator after the rough winter he has had, in and out of the hospitals but it must have been just toe much. He entered the hospital at Iowa City with another asthma attack. This also left Mrs Olsen with the tough job of finding a hired man just when spring work was starting. Sexton had more than its share at Iowa City. The Everett Stevens took their young son Craig to a lung specialist for tests and were very happy to hear the good news he did not have a serious infection as they had been told before. You would never know it to see him out playing now, but George young son of Mr and Mrs Art Hix has had his third operation for removal of adenoid tissue. He is now the happy owner of a new parakeet, but what a hard way to earn it. A familiar sprite figure is to be seen walking around town again After looking after home and stock for a number of farmers the pasl years when they vacationed, Arch Burger finally took off on a trip of his own and spent two weeks with his son Frank at Carlisle. It must have been nice to be welcomed home with a new neighbor in his yard. John Shier has moved into his nice blue trailer parked in Arch's front yard. More proof this is still a growing community, the first building project of the summer has been started. Leo Kirschbaum is adding another room to his house. Mack Wise won't have to make his long threatened vacation trip after all. The young lady came to see him. Tina Wise of Savanna Illinois, spent a few days last week with her grandfather. She was accompanied by her parents, Mr and Mrs Lloyd Wise. Mr Wise is employed by a newspaper at their home town. If you see youngsters scattering away from the Art Hix home, a regular gathering place, there is a mostjunusual*reason, Art is back onThls 24 hour a "day" schedule o working all night for Everds Bros construction and then doing his "farming" and driving as extra man for the elevator during the day. But when the kids scatter it means Alice is trying to get things quieted down a little so Art can Stratton has left the Cla'rence Huff get a few hours sleep during the and Mrs Martin Mimbach home in time for Martin to are get his garden in after spending the winter at Roy, Utah. Mothers who have been wanting to get out after the long winter will welcome this 'news as Mrs Mimbach is a favorite baby sitter for many i?i this area. Returning with them for a visit is their daughter, Mrs Lawrence Taylor and two sons. Sgt. Taylor is stationed at the Air Force base in Utah. The first signs of spring were mighty late this year, although they are a little different in this town. The first sign was August Kirschbaum out raking his yard for the first one done as usual. August is to be congratulated on taking such good care of main street this winter that the season ended with our street in much better condition than those in some nearby cities. This also left August enough time to begin a long needed project in this town of many boys. With the aid of his • tractor, and numerous young help- Rng"harids' "August has built aT>tTsb- "bnll diamond by cleaning up Ed • Fitch's lot south of the Kirschbaum house. Three cheers for a good job well done but Bertha watch out for those foul balls when you come out your back door. Another sure sign of spring, John TAKE THE HELL OUT OF HAIL PROTECT YOUR LABOR, EXPENSE AND CROP INCOME WITH HAIL INSURANCE It doesn't pay to put off buying your Crop Hail Insurance.

We don't like to see our ladies leaving for Des Moines right now but since they spent the day at a Baptist Church convention it was safe enough. Anyway welcome home again to Mrs Nell Opheim and Mrs Don Mains. That wasn't a wedding train stuck in town after all, just "Swede" Witham's horn got stuck. Maybe with a new manager at the station they will be adding a lunch counter considering the number that stop at the store during the summer for the makings for their dinner. Too bad they can't package and sell all that excess energy at the John Jennings. Not only is Mrs Jennings up and very much on the go after her bout with pneumonia, but John just can't seem to stay retired. After investing in a tiller to make his "gavJen farming" easier, John is going out in the country to help farm again.
