so. buffet serving is the means of
melting down any formality which
might otherwise exist among the

easy for the hostess and pleasant
for the guests.
Cake Making
Several hints for making cake
that is light and fluffy were ex
plained in detail. Proper utensils,
accurate measurements and care
ful methods were stressed as all
important in making good cake.
Mrs. Ihrig said that the air cells
which are wnipped mto the various
ingredients of a cake must be pre
served. Whipping the cake "over’’
not "around", is the proper method.
The discussion of cake baking
led to some novel suggestions in
flavorings. "Two Rose Geranium
leaves placed in the bottom of the
pan in which an angel food cake Is
to be baked will add a most un
usual and pleasing flavor.” Mrs.
Ihrig told her audience. A combina

heirs in the Mary Kingsbury Forto
will, which donated a small fortune
to the Catholic church, was sus

the ground that the appeal bond

church were represented by Hall

Mrs. Forto. who died here about a

The will was contested by the heirs
