The recipe was sent in by Mrs Ethel E. Farrell, of Whitlemore, and-took first place under the first week's classification "Hot Weather Dishes". Mrs Farrell is thereby ten dollars richer, having been sent a check for the award. Many Super-Duper Recipes The board of judges, headed by "Grace", writer of the well- known Woman's World column, report a difficult time choosing the winner, due to the fact that the broad category of "Hot Weather Dishes" for the firsi week brought in an amazing variety of food ideas. Among others, Mrs Georgia Thaves, Mrs Ben Reid, Evelyn Cady, Mrs Harold Kuecker, and the final winner, Mrs Farrell, ai! sent in salad recipes that were "super-duper". Freelove Weisbrod sent in a good recipe for Triple Deck Meat Loaf, Edna Teeter submitted a good casserole and hamburger recipe and Mrs George Bauman a sausage and cabbage casserole. Thus, it may be seen that "the classification "Hot Weather Dishes" at- tracted many different kinds of recipes. Two Runnet • Ups A Burt woman, and another frbm Algona also sent in top recipes, which were nudged out by a bare margin by Mrs Farrell, Mrs H. W. Sankey, Burt, sent in an unusual macarbtti and cabbage salad,' While from Mrs W. H. Raney of Algona came a luscious Chicken Rice Loaf. .

Merchant Sponsors Especial attention is drawn tn the many interesting messages presented on the Recipe Contest page, by Algona merchants who are co-sponsors of this already dramatic and interesting contest.
