Hie aroma of freshly cooked doughnuts, beauty of a colorful array of cookies, the five layer wedding cake, all were evident of the ability as William Jones, owner of the bakery, busied himself greeting customers and handing out tasty jelly-filled doughnuts as they passed thru the tgle and span show-room peering at the goodies.

The Dur ham community should grasp now the opportunity offered It to start the job of self-rehabili tation of the poor.
