10—Algeno, Qo.) Upper DM MotnM Trturtdoy, March 16, 1*65 Sexton News Is Good As Spring Hears SEXTON - With spring just arouacUhe. corner, our little town has foft§n blessed with good news for a.'iai4%e. The Jack Weder- quists finally made It to Minneapolis between billiards for Jon's checkup at University hospital. This time the results were excellent, with ever}' possibility the boy's kidneys will return to normal after successful surgery. He does not return to the hospital until October for another check. At the Martin Mimbachs, news was.--.dven more miraculous. TheiV"grahdson, Larry Taylor, 9, was able to start to a special school,. lor the first time this winter, after successful brain surgery last spring. He travels by bus to Ogden, Utah for an all-day session and at last word is doing well. Because of this new development, Mr. and Mrs. Mimbach will remain here for all of the winter as they didn't wish to disturb the boy's new routine with a visit. - o Guess the fears were unfounded that Sexton would turn into a ghost town with so many of our residents leaving us. Instead, according to rumor, tills could be quite a city if there were just more homes available. Right now the only ones with a definite departure date seems to be the Steve McCalls, who plan to move to the Dr. Shey home in Algona the first of April. The"* Alfred Ophelm's departure was delayed by the injury of his^boss, Jim Kelley, in an auto accident, but they have now received .word that the move may be any., ^lay. A farewell party was held at the Roger Arndorfer home for the Opheims with Mr. and fMrs. Tom Arndorfer of Mallard and Mr. and Mrs. Dick lijckteig attending. Mrs.^Nell Opheim has become reconciled to seeing her grandson Doug leave for Sioux City with his parents and now she won't be so lonesome after all. He'r niece and family, Mr. and Mrs^CIair Hovey, Carol and Jimrny-of Algona, will be moving into the home vacated by the Steve).. McCalls just across the street At this time the Clarence Gol- wijzers are planning on remaining here .until school is out, as are jUj&ilford Wards. Snj6$?or no snow, we'll bet one frlocal lady is getting her spring house cleaning done early th|s year. Mrs. Glenn Gabrielson is to be hostess to the Wesley WSCS Methodist ladies and alfo the Plum Creek Homemaker§ thl£ month. Were will be no shortage of pretty girls in this town pretty soon. TJid you notice two local girls were chosen as queen candidates for their 4-H club for Fun night, Sharon Hix from the Irvlngton Ideals and Joyce Gabrielson from the Plum Creek club. The Everett Stevens must have just gotten home from visiting their daughter In Texas in time for the kids to come here. Robert and Ann Kiess arrived in the middle of one of those blizzards as he had received an unexpected leave from the Army. They also visited his family at Charles City. And speaking of Texas visitors, someone must have sent the John Jennings the news on our weather as they are making an extra long stay at San Antonio. A card from them §ajd they did make it to the rodeo and sure enjoyed the riding-' of the bulls and wild horses, but we think they meant they watched the cowboys doing the riding. Mr. and Mrs. Amand Dangelser have moved back to the home farm north of Sexton after farming in the Titonka area for a few years. Former residents also continue to come back for a visit. Gary Cooper of Algona spent the weekend at the Clarence Huff home while his brother Mike stiyed' 'at the Leo Kirschbaum hoine. ^he March meeting of the Sex- toe Friendly Club will be held at the home of Mrs. Roy Hansen and will be a pot luck dinner at | QUILT %lrs.- William Hoepner of Greenfield lias an unusual "Birthday" quilt.
