Ladies All Invited to Enter Loaves in
The rapidly increasing attendance at
the Y. M. C. A. at Mrs. Carrie Ives
Saunders' classes in cooking shows the
great Interest taken in her work of
demonstrating home making as well as
cooking. Mrs. Saunders has compiled
an excellent cook book, filled with her
own recipes, which are of great assist
ance to the housekeeper. Yesterday a
lesson was given on sponge cake and
salad, both being great successes and
they were pronouced delicious.
Monday, by request, the lesson on
bread baking will be repeated and one
woman was heard to say, "I am glad
the lecture on bread will be heard
again, as I have baked bread for 30
years, but have changed my whole idea
of bread baking since I heard Mrs.
Saunders." Wednesday there will be
a bread baking contest, and everybody
is invited to bring a loaf of bread. The
loaves made from Pillsbury's flour will
be examined by a committee of Rock
Island ladies and a prize of $3.00 for
the best loaf and $2.00 for the second
best will be awarded. Ladies all bring
your loaves, whether you think they
will win a prize or not as they will be
given to Bethany Home after the con
test is over. Remember that next week
Mrs. Saunders will give her best lec
tures and also that you are helping
