ie«AfB<»n* (lo.) Upp*r DM Moinet Thurtdoy, Aopuit 5, IMS Sexton Girl Home; Boat, Car, Bus Trip To Alaska The medaj for Sexton "traveler-of-the-Apar" will have to go to Virginia Klein dauchter of the Arthur Kleins. Stie saw ire- beres. whaJes and porpoises la fulfilllne her wish to see Alaska. No, it was not a hitchhiking trip, as she and Joan Byam have just returned from Junemi after making the trip by car, bus and boat. They reported a beautiful, excitinp trip, but an awful long way. Virginia returned home in time to see a visitor at the Klein home as Mrs. Klein's cousin, Clifford Schaben of West Chicago, 111. was there. Other visitors the past month were Marie Geinitz of Litchfield, Minn, and Mr. and Mrs. Richard Ackermaji and three children of Lancaster, Wisconsin. - o - Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Klein recently accompanied Mr. and Mrs. Duane Sheppard to Rochester where Mrs. Sheppard had a check-up at the clinic. Later In the day they visited the Frank Cunninghams, former Algerians. They found the Cunninghams building a new house after fire has destroyed their home. Mr. and Mrs. Don Mains had a busy, out not especially enjoyable time with two trips recently. They took Don's mother to Iowa City, where she remained at the hospital for care for a diabetic condition. They went to Grundy Center to attend the funeral of Mrs. Mains great uncle, Morris Phillips, 95 years old. Carol Mains had the real vacation of the family as she spent •a week at the Baptist camp at Clear Lake. Mrs. Lyle Alexander has been taking an unusual vacation from the farm. She Is looking after the apartment house owned by her father-in-law In Ft. Dodge. Jim Alexander recently had surgery at Ft. Dodge hospital and Mrs. Alexander will spend about two more weeks there while he Is recuperating Mrs. Nell Ophelm, Mr. and Mrs. Don Mains and Mr. and Mrs. Clalr Hovey attended an unusual service at,the Bap- . tlst church In Algona Friday evening. It was the conclusion of the ordination of their minister, the Rev. Arthur Hicks. During the afternoon representatives of some 80 Baptist churches In Iowa, Omaha, where Rev. Hicks attended school, and Michigan which is his home state, were invited to question the Rev. Hicks on theology in preparation for his acceptance as a minister. Rev. Hicks has been here at the Algona church for a year with his wife, son and two daughters. A supper was served in the evening to all visitors who stayed for the evening service. Mr. and Mrs. Harold Martinek arrived at the scene of tragedy when they went to Boone to have a picnic with his sister Ailene Martinek, who teaches at Boon* schools. They arrived at the Ledges State Park just as the six young children were being removed from the river after drowning last Sunday. Mr. and Mrs. Bob Pergande of Key West, Florida were callers at the Clalr Hovey home this week. Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Phillips are also entertaining visitors frnm a distance this week as Elmer's brother and sister- in-law arrived from California. Maybe Sexton doesn't need proper identification for highway traffic, visitors from every corner of the country seem to be finding the place without any trouble. Mr. and Mrs. Jack Wederqulst have found the perfect time to take a vacation. Their visitors from Massachusetts for the past three weeks had just left when the Wederquists took off for a long weekend at the lakes to recuperate I Duane, Joann and Janet Hix spent a few days with their grandmother, Mrs. Jim Popisicle of Forest City. Craig Steven, son of the Evert Stevens, spent a week with his aunt, Mrs. Evert Hodgin before making a less pleasant trip, are- turn checkup trip to the hospital at Iowa City. Richard Dreyer and Kenyon Gabrielson accompanied Glenn Gabrielson on a trip to Chicago to sell steers. All the steers, but one that is, and once more a steer managed to Jump the fences during loading and escaped across the fields. Since it is still on the loose do you suppose Glenn would throw a beef barbecue, if all the neighbors got together and helped him run it down? They might Ix? able to round it up in time to celebrate the completion of the now cattle shed lx?inp Uiilt at the Gabriel- sons'. Mrs. Glenn Gabrielson was one of seventeen hostesses meeting at the home of Jean Benschoter to plan a bridal shower for Audrey Gardner, daughter of the Stanley Gardners. Miss Gardner will marry Allan Bartels of Estherville on August 14. Miss Gardner has also completed her nurses training this month, at Chicago. Peggy Gatton, daughter of the Harold Gattons, was honored at a sixth birthday party last week. Guests were Janet and Joann Hix and Bryan Huff. Betty Gatton started work in Algona this week at a restaurant. Another local lady has been added to the list of working women and Sexton ladies should lie well perfumed from now on as the town is part of Alice Mix's cosmetic selling territory. Sexton attracts a surplus of dumped stray dogs, but keeping our own pets seems to be getting more difficult. KatliyPruisman's much loved little Twobits was bitten by a larger dog last week and didn't survive the night. There Is one way to find out Clear Lake has three parks, just plan a family reunion there without saying which one to meet at. The Sexton and Thornton branches of the Stratton family had dinner at the state park, while the Waterloo, Mallard and California group had dinner at the city park. Some of the youngsters of both groups had been sent out scouting for the rest, but since the last reunion was 16 years ago the kids didn't recognize anyone. All ended well when some of the older generation made a trip around and found the other group for an afternoon of visiting. Clarence Huff has been hearing a few comments about spending his days dressed up in white shirts, but"he has'a good excuse, the station where he works has put employees in uniform, including the white shirts. ..... It would be worth a 'stop at Glenn Gabrlelsons Just to see how easy the modern farmer has things. For Instance that tractor he "works" on now has a large umbrella to shade the new reclining seat complete with extension steering wheel, a very loud radio, and a well supplied tractor lunch box. So no more comments on poor hard work- Ing Glenn, not even stopping for a coffee break.
