(Mueller Studio Foto) Might Meel Anyone On Sexton Stop SEXTON - Sexton was the scene of a truly surprise meeting for two former residents. BobKelley of Evansville, Wise, stopped on his way across country as a salesman for a steel building company. While visiting with Mack Wise, he was surprised by the entrance of his brother- in-law, Jim Johnson and family of Jolley, on their way to a Clear Lake resort for a weekend vacation. Which only proves if you want to see someone, drop in at Sexton, sooner or later they will show up here. - o - ' The summer must have been mighty short after last winter because so many were taking advantage of even the very last week before school started for a vacation. The most enjoyable must have been the few days that Mrs. August Kirschbaum used quite well. She entertained her sisters, Mrs. Maynard Nail of Phoenix, Ariz, and Mrs. Tom Wilson of Kanawha for two days, including visits at the Leo Kirschbaum and Roland Bode homes. Butthe sisters musthave had a lot to talk over for they persuaded Mrs. Kirschbaum to accompany them on a two-day tour that included the Chester and Cleo Eisenman homes'at Britt and the Willard Eisenman home at Forest City. Mrs. Art Hix accompanied an Algona lady on a weekend trip to the area where both their husbands are employed on road construction south ol Decorah, Barry Huff spent his first weekend away from home at the farm of his cousins, Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Huff, Titonka. Kathy pruisman made it home from a visit with her sister near Cedar Rapids in time to get in a little work before school started. Mr, and Mrs. Perry Lowman . stayed until the last possible day on their trip to Portland, Ore., but were back in time for the boys to make the school bus Monday. Leo Thomson's youngest daughter won't do as well since she left the past weekend for a trip to Washington, D. C. with a chartered busload of 4-H youngsters and theirchaperones. They plan a week's tour of historical sites at the capital city, Perhaps they will learn more than they would have from the week of 3U| school they "missed, or at least .', they are sure* to remember it longer. Stopping for a short visit with former neighbors were Mrs. Wil- .ford Ward and Melvin of Norway, and Melvin gained a week of school since he started earlier in his new home town. The large group of last year's Sexton klndergartners will have to get along without each other's moral support this year as they have all been separated into different schools Instead of all remaining at Bertha Godfrey. One of our busiest young couples spent some time at the Lawrence Miller home taking care of the place and two of the youngsters while the Millers vacationed in California. Then Mr. and Mrs. John Jennings spent Sunday afternoon, being guests of honor at their own golden wedding anniversary with a lovely party being held in the social rooms at the Presbyterian church. Quite a number of the large crowd present were the couples' own grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Also able to attend were the couples' attendants, John's sister Fanny and brother Fred of Titonka. In spite of the cold, rainy day It was a warm and sunny celebration inside the church. Mrs. Nell Ophelm was a guest at the bridal shower for Linda Halstead, daughter of the Archie Halsteads of Emmetsburg. Mrs. Art Klein was a guest at the Bob Arndorfer home in Algona where a surprise baby shower was held for Mrs. Roger Arndorfer of Sexton. The guest of honor also made it to the shower after scouts were sent out to persuade her to go for a little ride that afternoon. Mr. and Mrs. Frank Stratton of Thornton were visitors at the Clarence Huff home to help celebrate John Stratton's 78th birthday. The family also had a call from the Max Strattons in Pacoima, Calif. Mrs. Clarence Huff attended a reunion of five former Algona high classmates at the home of Mrs. Charles Dear sen of Algona. Also attending were Mrs. Martin Huber of Algona, Mrs. Gordon Wegner of Klamath Falls, Wash., and Mrs. Curtis Johnson of Glendora, Cal. The coffee party lasted until the late hours because some of the class members have been around the world since the graduation a few short years ago and there was much to catch up on, Including the whereabouts of about 75 other classmates. The Sexton Friendly Club met at the home of Mrs. Harold Gatton with a good representation in spite of all the last minute vacationers. Also attending 'as guests were Mrs. Jack Weder- qulst and family. If the roll call answers to what is the nicest thing a friend has done for you are any Indication, It sounds like a mighty nice world we live in around this part of it. A delicious lunch of apple crisp a la mode was served by Mrs. Gatton. The September meeting will be at the home of Mrs. August Kirschbaum with a very good attendance needed as there will be an election of new officers. Sexton is still plagued with dog troubles, but of a new variety this summer. The third family pet was lost from the town when the August Kirschbaum's dog was struck on the highway. Mrs. Art Klein must have thought she had Inherited Sexton's honor of being the place to dump dogs when a new one showed up two days in a row. Next door neighbor, Mac McMahon, took the first off her hands and he now has a friendly black Labrador to keep him company. The next was a bright little pooch Mrs. Klein would have been glad to keep, only to find out he had wandered over from Charles McMahons where he had been boarding until owners, the Perry Lowmans returned home. Now that the parking problems seem to be under control, Sexton's street commissioner is getting a new one to handle In the form of the two-wheeled motorists racing down Main street.
