4-At0eno (lo.) Upp*r Dei Moin*l Thursday, May 27, 1965 Linda Ackerman Of Burt It Engaged To Wed ETIQUETTE IS DOING THE PKOPER things In the proper way, hut most of the etiquettp l>ooks are not very practical. They tell you how to perform at fancy dress balls, which fork to use at banquets, who goes first in the chow line at a formal fish fry and things like that. What they don't tell you Is how the av«rage wife Is going to manage to browbeat the average husband into going to these affairs. A lot of husbands never go and a lot of others don't plan to go again. - o - WHAT MOST PEOPLE REALLY GO TO CS stuff like football, Softball and basketball games, pinochle and bowling tournaments, Cub Scout Pack meetings, the supermarket, Rotary Ann and Kl- wanis Kween sweetheart nights, the wrestling matches and drive- in movies (these are not necessarily the same event), the supermarket, Brownie Fly-ups, family reunions, etc. Obviously the etiquette books should be revised to include these and In case Emily and Amy are too busy, I plan to help out a little. - o SIXTY-THREE PERCENT OF A wife's time, and 98.52 per- ent of a husband's money Is spent at the supermarket, so we'll start with proper behavior there. The first thing to remember is to observe the speed limit. It's 40 miles per hour on the aisles straightaways and 35 on the curves where the canned spaghetti Is stacked. It Is allowable to slow down to two miles an hour where the assorted soup Is on sale this week and overtime parking is permitted at the frozen food counter when Ice cream is special at 59 cents a half-gallon. Throwing cans of tomato juice Into the path of another's cart to keeplier from getting at the limited supply of half-price cake mix is improper and unsportsmanlike. - o - IF YOU HAVE A CART LOADED to capacity (one and seven- eighths tons) be sure to dash into the pay line just ahead of a cartless shopper who is carrying only three popslckles or something. Always manage to forget five or six items (preferably Items whose locations In the store are three miles apart) In case you reach the head of a particularly long pay line. At this moment you are expected to search through your purse for your 7-cents-off coupons and return all your old pop bottles for refund. It is not proper to start eating the food from your cart while waiting in the pay line unless you have been In line for more than three days. - o - A TRUE TEST OF WHETHER A shopper is a real lady or gentleman, as the case may be and frequently Is, is how he or she behaves at the produce counter. Little credit can be given for refraining from pinching the tomatoes because It can be taken as an absolute certainty that tomatoes are all tough nowadays anyway. The real criterion of refinement Is to be able to pinch, smell and stroke the cantaloupes without remarking to your fellow shoppers that you never can tell about cantaloupes until you cut into them. Special honors go to the shopper who can make the most grapefruit roll In the aisles when she removes the bottom one from the pyramid. . - o SINCE IT IS EASIER TO behave properly if you know you are dressed properly, we'll talk about correct supermarket apparel. It Is perfectly acceptable to wear a nice, neat housedress while shopping - but only for those women wearing sizes 5 through 9 Junior Petite and for misses sizes 10 through 12. All gentlemen and larger lady shoppers are expected to wear pants of some sort - slacks, blue jeans, tight stretch, Bermudas! or pedal pushers and the really well-reared lady from size 48 on up will choose short shorts. - o - STANDARDS IN THE HAIRDRESS departments have been relaxed recently so that it is no longer absolutely mandatory that the really savvy homemaker put her hair up in pink rollers before setting out for the store. However, most of us still feel a little out of place if we don't have at least a couple of clips or a few bobby pins in our tresses. Another social event where It is perfectly proper to let your hair down and go without curlers is the formal church wedding after five o'clock In the evening. Only the bride wears pink rollers at a ceremony like that. She has to look nice for the reception 1 - o - WHEN I BEGAN WRITING THIS column, I planned for It to be a really comprehensive etiquette guide for every social situation. But here I am almost out of space and we've only gotten as far as the supermarket. Come to think of it, the supermarket is as far as I got this week in the way of a social situation I So, until I get in a little more research, surely Emily and Amy can take it from there. - o - DURING THE WEEK OF MAY 23 through 29 people having birthdays include Rick Post, L. C. Wallace, Lil Sefrit, Orlan Ott, Opal Bourne, Howie Clegg, Karin Ericksou, Gaylord Shumway, Chuck Hardgrove, Lynn Buchanan, Thelma Tschetter, Mike Cogdall, Harold Menke, John Behr, Jeanne Milder, Betty Holt, John Hayes, Lora Segar, Becky Wetzel, Debra Ann Taylor, Barbara Colwell, Alice Fristedt, Corean Bronson, L. Jack Keith, James Alan Sindelar, John Scott Sindelar, Jean Owens, Bonnie Miller, Bill Finn, Mary Hlnken, Danny Frank!, Virginia Hardgrove, Billy Kuhn, Linda Lampright, Nancy Cole and Nell Norton. Mr. and Mrs. Irving Miller celebrate their wedding anniversary on her birthday and Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd Bohannon also have an anniversary. - o - THIS WEEK'S RECIPE IS FOR Chocolate Meringue Shortbread and it can be baked in a pizza pan. 2 1/2 cups sifted flour 1 cup butter 1/2 cup sugar 2 egg yolks 1/4 tsp. salt 3 - 1-ounce squares semi-sweet chocolate, melted Meringue-pecan topping Lightly grease a 13-inch pizza pan or baking sheet.

GRACE LINDA ACKERMAN BURT - Mrs. Muriel Ackerman announces the engagement and coming marriage of her daughter, Linda Lou, to David Bunkofske, son of Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Bunkofske, Burt. Both are graduates of Burt high school. She is employed at St. Ann hospital and he is an employee of Weldenhoff Co. A July wedding in being planned. Nothing Sleepy About Sexton On This Day! SEXTON - After last Thursday don't say around Sexton that nothing ever happens In a small town. In the morning Janet Hlx, youngest daughter of the Art Hix's, fell from a truck parked In the yard. When brought In by her sister Joann, Janet had no marks on her, but was sleepy, began vomiting and later bleeding from one ear. Mrs. Clarence Golwltzer drove Janet and her mother to the Britt hospital where X-rays were made. She was found to have a skull fracture and spent two days at the hospital and Is to be kept as quiet as possible for a five year old for the next two weeks, at home. Main street residents had their scare in the afternoon when a man was seen lying along the highway in the vicinity of the store. It turned out to be an elderly resident, Ed Fitch, who had fallen while walking. He was rescued by Ralph Witham and returned to his home. The same evening Mrs. Clarence Golwitzer became seriously ill and was rushed to the doctor by her husband who had just returned home from work at Wesley. Although feeling much better now there must have been moments when she wondered if she would be joining Janet In that empty bed she had seen in her room at the hospital. - o - There were more Sextonites on the disabled list, Art Olsen left for Iowa City for another round of checkups and treatment and If lucky would be home in a few days. After three weeks in the Veterans hospital in Des Moines Frank Prulsman has had his surgery and came through in very good condition. It's a good bet he's starting to count the days now until he can get home and unlimber his fishing pole now that he's heard they're biting. The Jack Wederquist family is following right along with the rest of the town. Although David has recovered from his measles, Jon fell prey to a severe ear Infection and on top of it began breaking out with measles and was Joined by his baby sister, Christine. Big sister Jill is expecting her spots to show up any day also. The season for summer visitors has officially opened this week. Mr. and Mrs. Don PeCoy are hosts this week to Mr. and Mrs. Carl Kernen from Sheboy- gen, Wisconsin, Mr. PeCoy worked for Mr. Kernan a number of years ago when they made their home in Sheboygan. Mrs. Nell Opheim is planning on the company of her daughter and three children, Mrs. Junior Ray Hooper of Mountain Home, Arkansas. Mrs. Hooper was met at Sioux City by her sister, Mrs. Bob Schumacher of Remsen and will spend a few days there before coming to Sexton. They are arriving Just in time to help Mrs. Opheim forget losing her family here. Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Opheim and Douglas and their trailer home all finally got moved to the Sioux City area after a number of delays. Word was received of the death of a former Sexton and West Bend area resident the past week at Waterloo. Gus Norte, who farmed In both areas for many years before his retirement, was found in a chair at his home on Sunday. He had suffered heart attacks since his retirement. Attending the funeral were John Stratton, who accompanied Mr. and Mrs. Frank Stratton of Thornton and Mr. and Mrs. Charles Prochaska of Mallard. Mr. and Mrs. Lyle Alexander planned a party at their home on Monday evening in honor of the graduation of their son, Nicholas, from the Titonka high school. Mrs. Roger Anderson of West Bend spent an afternoon visiting at the Art Hix home last The Sexton Friendly Club will meet this Thursday at the home of Mrs. Wilford Ward with plans to be made for the annual family picnic in June. There shouldalso be a good turnout as this will be a farewell meeting for Mrs. Ward, who is planning on moving to their new home at Norway, Iowa in June. Mr. and Mrs. August Kirschbaum attended a music recital given by their granddaughter Susan Bode, daughter of the Roland Bodes, last Sunday. As a newcomer, Carol Hovey became initiated as one of the bandaged regular members of the town last week. She now has a finger in a splint as the result of a collision In a game of tag. Trouble comes in big doses around this town as considerable damage was done when lightning struck three poles south of town and lit up the area. At the Clalr Hovey home the TV and furnace were burned out and they must really be wondering what kind of welcome they are getting as newcomers. Next door at the 1 Frank Prulsman home the TV, furnace and deep freeze were hit, but worst of all the house was left "fully charged." Touching any number of things including the plumbing resulted in an electric shock and family members didn't feel any better when told it could be fatal. The mile of light poles south of here seems to have a fatal attraction for lightning bolts, but they are getting closer to town each time. The Sexton citizens meeting was held once more last Monday to deal with the street lighting problem and it is hoped an ironclad contract agreed upon and signed. Payment for the next six months is due the first of June and is to be sent directly to Mr. Carl Frick, Manager of the light company at Britt. Another meeting will be held the first of December to collect for the next year and Mr. Frick will be on hand to hear any complaints and to see if the agreement has worked satisfactorily. The meeting was ended on a congenial note with coffee and doughnuts provided by Mr. Frick who has done his utmost to see that Sexton stays lit up at night.
