Mrs. Eugene Simmons entertained the Washburn Homemakers club last week Thursday with a large attendance.  Mrs. Adolph Mazourek and Mrs. Ernest Kuhn presented the project, "Prepared Mixes and Master Mix."  After the meeting they had a ‘silent auction’ of articles of food or unused articles, which netted about $4.
