Algona, Fenton Cooks Share Prize Money New One For Next Week Foreign Foods Whether you use a packaged mix for your cake, or whip it up from your own ingredients, n good frosting and filling can't help but improve it. And pood frostings, icings and fillings are what we have for you this wcc!< in the Eighth Upper Des Moines- Algotia Merchant's recipe contest. We had lots of very fancy concoctions and several of the plainer, old-fashioned variety, and though every last one of the 51 entries were excellent, the judges tried to come half-way between the plain and fancy. The prize winners this week are Mrs Ben Reid of Algona with her Snowflakc Frosting and Mrs Floyd Duncan of Fenton with her Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting. The other entries that came closest to being in the money were Mrs Anna Berte of Livermore with her unusual and simply made Apple Frosting, Mrs Albert Schwarzenbach of Fenton NOTICE All Landowners or Tenants Are Requested To Mow Roads To Prevent Holding Snow In The Winter. If Possible Mow The Entire Ditch, If Not, The Top Swath Will Be A Great Help. Buckthorne Also MUST Be Taken Care Of and Destroyed This Winter. BOARD OF SUPERVISORS with her Fruit Nut Filling, Mrs W. A. Hammond of Wesley with her Orange Coconut Filling and Mrs Ken Geilenfeld, Algona, with her Broiled Chocolate Mar- shinaljow Frosting. Mrs Georgia Thaves sent a filling which sounds wonderful— Creme Au Beurre. It's made of sugar, lots of eggs, milk and beaten until fluffy. Her date filling also sounds super. If you'd like a good Tutti-Frutti filling, there's a good one from Vivian Button of Burl and Mrs Floyd Duncan, one of our winners, sent a Cherry Filling which uses gelatine. Unfrosled Cakes, Too Th"re are people who like their angel food cakes unfrosted, but Audry Frye's recipe for Lemon Butter Icing may change that line of thinking. Mrs Irwin Hildman of Wesley sent a Creamy Quick Frosting which makes enough for two angel foods and Mrs Albert Schwarzenbach of Fenton has a Chocolate Seven Minute Frosting that would probably bo good to top an angel food. There were seve'ral recipes designed to save home-maker's most precious commodities—time. Mrs Margaret Fraser of Cylinder has a Busy Day Frosting, Mrs Ken Geilenfeld a No-Cook Puff Frosting and a Minute Fudge Frosting. Vivian Dutton has a Marshmallow Nut Frosting that you run under the bi oiler instead of cooking it. Chocolate Frosting arc always favorites. Mrs Joe Kcnne of Irvington sends her recipe, Nelle Frimml of Corwith has a Never Fail Chocolate Frosting and others of the same flavor came from Mrs Albert Schwarzenbach, Fenton and Mrs Ben Reid. Car- mcl Icing recipes came from Mrs Allan Bollinger, Fenton, Vivian Dutton, Burt and Audry Frye. Mrs Bollinger also sent a Cream Frosting and a Milk Frosting and Nelle Frimml also has a Creamy Frosting. There's a fine Ice cream Topping recipe from Mrs Joe Kcnne of Irvington.

Cedar Rapids Entry Mrs Gladys Barker of Cedar Rapids sent an unusually interesting entry. Several of the recipes were taken from a 1913 cook book put out by the Mothers and Daughter's Club of Union Township. The recipes were Filling of Fruit by Mrs Carrie Gilmore, Icing, cither canncl or white, by Lizzie Salisbury and another frosting recipe by Mrs Ida Bils- borougii. Mrs barker said that Mrs Carrie Bourne and Mrs Kate Annis also had recipes in the book but they didn't come under this week's category. Among Mrs Barker's own recipes were Prune Whip and Prune Frosting, Jell Frosting, Lemon, Raisin and Spicy trull Fillings and a Choc- oJate Cream Frosting. Our winning recipes for this week will be found on our special recipe contest page together with the messages Irom the Algona Merchants co-sponsoring these weekly Cook's Conclaves. Last week there was a slight slip up and we left the 2M> cups of milk out of Mrs John Button's Golden Dairy Soup, so make a note of it before you try her recipe. Next week's contest should be a super-duper for the category is Foreign foods. It might be a good idea to label these recipes with the nationality of their origin, just in case the judges don't understand the lingo. It's also a good idea to label the outside of the envelope "Recipe Contest" since the Upper Des Moines also has a Grid Guessing Contest with two separate judging boards. We wouldn't want your recipe for Hungarian Goulash to end up with the forcasted score of the Iowa-Wisconsin game or vice- versa. —GRACE.
