Sexton Club Cools Off But Gets Coffee SEXTON - The loss of electric power would have made a cool Friendly Club meeting at the home of Mary McMahon except for the warm conversation. No heat or water and a house full of guests may have made the hostess a little nervous but at least power was restored in time to make the coffee. Guests at the meeting were former members, Mrs. Ambrose Licktieg of Algona and Mrs, Glenn Gabrielson. The February meeting it is hoped will be at the home of Mrs, Nell Opheim with Mrs. Alfred Opheim as hostess if she has not moved to Sioux City before then. LGONA SAT-MAT.

Walter Ostermeier officiating. The bride's attendant was Mrs. Don Glaser, matron of honor, while Keith Will served as best man. Ushers were Tim Klein and Gus Berninghaus, Jr., and Mrs. Tim Klein was organist. The bride was attired in a street length brocade white dress and wore a small white ring hat. A reception for guests was held following the ceremony in the church parlors. The newlyweds are making their home at Omaha, Nebr. where the bridegroom attends a mechanics school.' Mr. Howe made his home with Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Householder at Lone Rock. (Nicholson Photo) It's not the best time of year to be taking a vacation in Iowa but Mrs. Nell Opheim had two good reasons for spending a week at the Bob Schumacher home in Remsen. She had to take her vacation while her substitute, Mrs. Alfred Opheim was still here and she helped granddaughter Tona Schumacher celebrate her birthday. Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Gabrielson and Mrs. Vinnie Laymon made a trip to Cedar Falls to be guests at the graduation from teachers college of GlenndaGab- rielson. But don't expect to be seeing Glennda around home now, she was only here long enough to turn around and go back to college where she is beginning study on graduate work for a degree. Mrs. George Hix has spent a few days in the hospital again, this time at Britt where she received transfusions. It turned Into an interesting week at the Jack Wederquist home. Their son Jon has been chosen as the March of Dimes poster boy for Kossuth county but he is such a photogenic fellow we think he would qualify for a national poster boy at least. This week the Wederquists received a large crate from the east coast containing some monster size lobsters fresh from the ocean. They are fortunate enough to have relatives back there who have friends on a commercial fishing boat. All the excitement must have been too much for Dave Wederquist as he is home from school for a few days with a sore throat. We can only hope it comes under the class of "wild rumors" because if all the people rumored to be moving from Sexton really do go it will look like a gold rush town after the gold was gone.
