On this day in 1910, the Athens Banner published the winners of the Young Women's Christian Association Cake Contest:
Though the Y.W.C.A was quite modern, as an organization that not only recognized the need for young, single women to work and be educated, and therefore, also need a safe place to stay when they came to cities on their own, they realized that barbeques, bake sales, other contests remained an acceptable way to raise money for these efforts.
