Wallace Larson Is Citizenship Winner, Ringsted Stay Awake When Driving Thru Sexton! Soxton — It doesn't seem pos sible Sexton could be such a quiet town anyone could drive all the way through it sound asleep. Bui a Buttertop Bread truck driver did and then proceeded to wake up much of the town when he ran off the highway at the west edge of town at 4:30 in the morning. Mack Wise has finally learned not to come to the door every time someone rattles it before hours so the driver went to the Don Pecoys to call for help. When the wrecker came it was believed the field the truck had landed in belonged to the farm home we. c t of it so the Jack Wiederquists were aroused. The wrecker was sent to the Art Mix home where they wen 1 given directions for entering the field from a back road. The truck driver should consider himself very fortunate to be uninjured after running off the road and then waking so many people.
