Topping: Idaho fresh purple plums, 10 or more \f2 cup granulated sugar 1/3 cup flour Vz teaspoon cinnamon ] /i cup soft butter Cut purple plums in half and remove seed. Then cut halves once lengthwise. Arrange quartered plums on their sides in desired pattern over top of batter. Mix together topping ingredients, using a fork. Sprinkle over top of plums and batter. Bake at 375 degrees F, (a moderately quick oven) about 35 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Make sure the batter under the plums is baked through. Cut in wedges or squares in the pan, removing with a wide spatula. Serve hot with forks. Provide butter to be slathered on by those who may like it, though it really isn't needed! This will make 6 to 8 servings. The taste of the purple plums cooked atop this coffee cake is so different from that of the uncooked sliced-in-a-bowl plums that you'll hardly know it's the same fruit! Demonstrates Floral Design For HEA Unit Ted Ferris of Anderson Florists demonstrated the arranging of both fresh and dried flowers for members of Lombard Homemakers Extension Unit at this week's meeting in the home of Mrs. Clem Bellinger at Lake Bracken. Mrs. Virgil Elliott was co-hostess. Talking as he did the flower arrangements, Mr. Ferris mentioned three things to consider in creating a floral design—line, color and quality. He showed how effective just one flower arranged with a little greenery can be, and cautioned against using too many kinds of blooms, a practice which can lead to confusion. He noted that fruits make a nice addition of color to fall arrangements. Mrs. Ben Sanford conducted the business session. Guests present were Mrs. M. R. Babbitt, Mrs. Dorothy Bayaert, Mrs. Carl Johnson, Mrs. J. Liston, Mrs. Max Mathers, Mrs. LeRoy Morris, Mrs. Alice Neilson, Mrs. James Riley, Mrs. Richard Hallberg and Mrs. D. I. Suydam.
