The disappearance of business was blamed on the automobile and the "new" highway, aided by a number of disastrous fires. The 45 mile speed limit the town tries to enforce makes it safer nowadays as the area had a number of auto accidents in the good old days when Model T's were flipped over on the highway quite often. But one tiling hasn't changed, Lawrence Welk is still quite popular as he was when he appeared in person at the dance hall before TV was heard of. The most amazing thing is how could such lively young ladies of the club remember back to when hitching posts lined both sides of main street unless they are just passing on Sexton history they heard from the old folks. The May meeting will be at the home of Mrs. Wilford Ward. * * * The town was really jumping last week as the annual appreciation day. and the serving of ham sandwiches and coffee at the Federal North Iowa Elevator drew a big crowd all day.

It's been quite a while since the fire trucks have made a run to Sexton but they sure could have been used at the Harold Gallons from the looks of the burned area that took in the parked farm machinery. ^ ..»_- .«_ . _..•-.-._ QUADRUPLETS A five year old Shropshire ewe owned by Mr. and Mrs. Ezra Peter sen of Humboldt, gave birth to quadruplet lambs March 29.

E CHICAGO AUTO SHOW TO * THE ALGONA AUTO SHOW "CHARGER II" DREAM CAR FROM DODGE Many Changes Noted During Sexton Meeting SEXTON - On one of the first perfect spring days, the Sexton Friendly club had a good turnout for a meeting at the home of Mrs. Don PeCoy. Mrs. Clair Hovey was a guest and new member and Mrs. Dick Lickteig and Pamela also were guests. A gift exchange was enjoyed with the revealing of secret sisters for the past year, and this year the memebers are getting smarter. Everyone didn't claim Mrs. Mack Wise for their secret sister just because so many of the gifts are left at the store to be passed on. All the afternoon wasn't spent on fun as there was also a serious discussion of what to do about the collection for street lights when the present collectors, Mr. and Mrs. Wilford Ward, move at the end of the month. Club members also volunteered facts about the past of Sexton, to be seat to the meeting of the Kossuth County Historical Society at Burt.
