Dept. of History and Arofcto, Des Moines 19, Iowa SEPTEMBER 18,1962 Mi SEPTEMBER 18, 1962 Christmas In September At Sexton Home Sexton—It's been getting mighty cool in Sexton for this early in the year, but the Algona neighbor* of Sarah Nell Stebbins must have thought Christmas cnme a little early this year. Alice Jean Stebbins and her cousin completely Christmas-decorated, their garage even to an artificial tree borrowed from Mr Bomgaars. The surprise party was for the first get-together in eight years of Mrs Stebbins and her brother and two sisters. Mr and Mrs Andy Phillips, Mr and Mrs Garnet Pickard and Mr and Mrs Milton McBride. Mrs Max Stratton has been putting in eight hours working at the hospital, but beginning Tuesday she will be there 24 hours at a time. Sue enters St. Ann's hospital for major surgery as this week's guest from Sexton. Main street gossip: Will the United States mail win it's parking rights now that the state highway has put up no parking signs along the right-of-way through Sexton? Seems the local driver has had some disagreement about his right to park along the highway, but the latest word from the postal inspector seems to say the mail truck can park any place. Seems everything happened on Main street this week, or haven't you seen the left front fender on that new blue car? Her only statement for the press about the accident was, no comment, but we are all mighty thankful it wa? only a crumpled fender.

Mr and Mrs Martin Mimbach spent Sunday afternoon in Minnesota with her cousin Anna Pirot to keep her company after some bad news. Her brother, Leo Spilles, died this week at his home in California. Mr Spilles at one time operated a hardware store in Algona. Have you ever wondered what you would do with your guests at a home sales party if the demonstrator couldn't come at the last minute? At a recent morning coffee party that Mrs Art Hix and Mrs Joe Penning co-hostessed, Mrs Hix showed the Christmas selection for the' kids when Mrs Fred Schoby was unable to come. The kids really enjoyed the air show Glenn Gabrielson put on here early one morning but the low flying act must have had something to do with corn dusting, too.
