But although eTery' body concerned is in a highly emotional state, the side remarks at a wedding are apt to be very mundane.

But what did I say _ r h»™ ^t M^J ^ R reallze W lon e dream of havi "g a oo I have ritten published, if I keep running true to form my first remarks will be, "But I don't like the color of the cover." And when my days on earth are over, and they lean over to catch my dying remarks it could very well be something like this-'Td feel better if I could just Durp! HOWEVER, IT IS SOMETIMES small talk that saves an occasion For example when there is a death in the house, it can be quite a comfort to fall back on inane remarks about the weather. At times like these ones presence counts more than one's pronouns. And when we are real worried about something, ordinary words are like ordinary tasks in keeping a person going. If we didn't have to keep up with our ordinary routine, get the meals on the table and wash the clothes no mat er what is bothering us, there might be times when we'd bog ONE ALGONA TEENAGER, DELTIHA SHIERK. is mighty glad f i«h P h a f te n t u5!. to . her weekly current events ma gazine last year in high school. Delthia is spending the summer with her brother, Cameron, at a suburb of Washington, D. C. and has recently been doing some sight-seeing[ini city. In a letter to her parents, Dr. and Mrs. t. C. Shierk Delthia tells of seeing two men talking near the Attorney General s office. One of them she recognized as Arthur Goldberg from a picture in the news magazine. Sexton — It's not as quiet as, you might think it would be down on the corner with two families gone on vacation. Mostly because five of the Bernard Cooper youns- sters stayed home with their grandmother, Mrs V. Cooper of Sioux City in charge. Mr and Mrs Cooper, Mike and Kathy are on a tr .'P to the Black Hills and a visit with the Bill Rusted family at Wall, S. D. Grandmother Cooper has been mighty busy with the younger ones, but most of all trying to keep the oldest son Gary interested in some hot checker games. He was unable to make the trip because he has the mumps. Just across the road Mrs Nell Opneim and her new car have left for a week at Mountain Home Ark. Mrs Jim Stebbins and Jimmy went along and will bring back her daughters after their visit with Mr and Mrs Junior Ray Hooper. J Things have quieted down for a while on the farm so Mr and Mrs Perry Lowman have taken off-for the west coast where- three*of- their daughters are now living. The boys David and Dean accompanied their other sister Marilyn in the same trip a week earlier as she is now moving out there to teach. There were also a few visitors coming here instead of more well- known vacation spots. Mr and Mrs Leroy Burger and Stephen are spending a week with his father Arch Burger and at Burt with Mrs Burger's brothers. Some of the visitors are mighty young for the length of the trip they have made. Almost three, Joan Domino of Rockford, 111. accompanied her grandfather John Graham of Cedar Rapids and stopped off here at the great-grandparents, Mr and Mrs Martin Mimbach and her aunt's home in Algona, the Jack Scobbas. Kathy Pruisman is home again at the Frank Pruismans and also visiting is her young nephew from Cedar Rapids. This time, Mrs Martin Mimbach had visitors who didn't give up until they had found her. Mr and Mrs Bill Wermersen, Curlew, former residents here, started their search with a clue from Mr and Mrs August Kirschbaum. The Mimbachs were found in Algona at the Joe Namers home. Also visiting for the afternoon was a sister of Mrs Namer and Mrs Mimbach, Anna Borches of Cassville, Wis. She is now making her home in Algona as housekeeper for Chet Williams. So many Sexton folks were making it to the hospital we now lave a private nurse there from this area. Mrs Max Stratton has >ut her nurses' aid uniform back on as a special nurse for private patients at St. Ann hospital. Her :harge now is Mrs L. A. Copp, a requent visitor in this area a few years ago when Mr Copp was Sexon depot agent. Looks like each patient is a little ougher as Mrs George Mix un- erwent surgery at her doctor's ffice without making it to the ospital and is doing fine. The lumber from the old Quinn uilding store is making a real last ditch" stand against being loved away. Before Ralph Hauer got his last load home he had o have help along the way from ugust Kirschbaum, Dave Seller and Merle Moxley. Did anyone notice that not onlv Wilford Ward but his assistant, Tom Arndorfer had their pictures on TV to help advertise Leo Greco's music. Wonder if the young fellow who was.going to show the kids how \ViJford Ward's ponies should be ridden has recovered his dignity yet? Seems he mounted and at the first crack of the whip went sailing head first. Hospital isn't the nicest sounding word at the August Kirschbaum's right now. Mr Kirschbaum's sister, Mary Carman is at St. Ann hospital in critical condition while his brother is also seriously ill at the Forest City hospital. Another couple taking advantage of the slow down on his farm job were Mr and Mrs John Jennings. They visited at Fairmont, Minn, with his sister, Mrs Julia Taft and daughter Helen. Mrs Taf! spent some time here a few years ago caring for her sister-in-law, Mrs Fred Jennings. The Jennings also have their new neighbors to the south this past weekend, and now it can ipnestly be said Sexton is for the birds. Mr and Mrs Darrell Steven and children have moved into the Kelley house and Mr Steven brought along his hobby, raising sigeons. Has anyone noticed one of (hr nicest looking gardens in town i? the work of our oldest resident? Eil Fitch is still a pretty good homesteader. Mttle league is over for the year and some of the mothers are a little relieved to have their driving chores done. The Sexlon youngsters should be mighty happy to have such a good record, in their first year for many of them. The boys in the younger group didn't get much training in being good sports at losing as they remained unbeaten for the season and ended up with a tie for first place. Wilford Ward's group of older boys ended the season with a 4-4 record and held third place in their class. Seems they had pretty good chance at second place until the last game 'ound them with five of their best jlayers missing because of vaca- 'ions and mumps.
