Miss Pennybacker'a wholly unexpected triumph the congregation of tho church will Install a big gas range in their new edifice In Sixteenth street. Said Miss Pennybacker after the con test: "Why, the Idea of my winning in u cake competition! It Is astonishing. I never dreamed of It. I simply uttended several of Prof. Snyder's lectures, heard hlin talk on cuke baking and went home and followed his Instruction. I had no Idea my cake would win. for I have seldom or never hud any success In cake bnklng. "I prize the gas range most hlghb. asid for the sentiment I think I Khali kpep It In my kltrhen as a reminder of the biggest surprise of my life. I have a much bigger new gUH range in my kitchen anil one euMer to operuto than the one I received In the contest. I think I fihall give the church my big, new slmpU range so that nnvono who knows how to cook can ue It ' Awarded Vacuum Cleaner. Mrs. Katherlne Puette, who was awarded the vacuum cleaner for the best layer cake, was enthusiastic over her victory, but not nearly so much as Miss Pennybacker, for winning oake prizes is no new sensation for Mrs. PUette. She has won u number of them p)th for layer and loaf cakes. In fact, she relied more heavily upon her sexeial loaf cake entri-s to win a reward than upon her layer cake. Mrs. Charles "Whltobread, who led "the entire field In the bread buklng division, uIho took her victory calmly, for she, too, Is a repeater us a winner In baking contests. Miss Pennybacker s victory seenied a popular one, Judging from the apilausn giver her by other women members of Mt.

I n irroat ili.nl l.v varliltic lt-,.r I " " ' Snyder and Mrs. Snyder at, they went about their big task, of selecting tho winners. The points considered in Judging the cakes were appearance, tuste, grain, texture, molstuie, tenderness, spiinui ness, and velvttnoss. In tho bread di vision appearance, grain, texture ."liv ing of tho ingredients, ki.eudlnt and baking wero considered. Each housewlve who entered .1 cake, was given a coupon with a number on It. A number corresponding to this wi placed on ths cake. In a closed Ittr 1 were placed duplicate numbered coi1 poiiH containing the nsmes and ad-1 dresses of the entries. The jar was not I opened until artcr the calces had hern Judged. Then Prof. Pnyder and Mrs. Knvder ascertained the names of the holders of the coupons. From among the forty-six loRf cakes, Prof. Snyder selected sixteen of the best, after poking holes in the slices cut off, testing the springiness and moisture and sizing up thn gen eral appearance. Then, as if ap pealing to the supreme court, he call ed In Mrs. Snyder, who went over all the entries, but failed to add any to the sixteen selects. Tho two then stood by the table on which the six teen cakes rested and viewed the cakes with most critical eyes. How They Judged. They massaged, squeezed, and poked the slices. They turned the pieces over and over. They tore the slices Into Blireds and mashed the mass up Into a lump In their balled fists. First they tore hunks from the slices, then they broke off bites, and wound up by breaking off flakes, testing tho big and slnall pieces as they broke them off. Not entirely satlslled, they seized knives and cut Into the cakes again to test the uniformity of tho grain. The loaf cake required almost an hour for decision. Prof. Snyder and Mrs. Snyder nar rowed the competition for tlrst honois down to No. Gl and No. 78. 'Jme and time again they tasted these cakeJ, cut' slices from them, and laid them side by sldo to compare the texture, irrain. etc. anJ flnallv agreed unon No. 61 as the winner.
