Here is a reprint from a previous edition of The Collectors Newsletter:

In 2001 my aunt passed away at the age of 81. She lived in the house in which she was born and grew up. My grandmother had lived there as well until 1983. When my aunt passed away she was living alone in the house. When I, being her only living relative, began to clean out the house, her longtime friend told me that my aunt had instructed her to tell me to be sure and get the things from the attic. I grew up visiting that house at least once a week and never knew there was an attic there. My husband climbed up into the attic through a very small opening in the 10 ft. kitchen ceiling. As we started to open the many boxes he passed down from the attic, we discovered gift cards in the majority. The things we found were wedding gifts that had never been unpacked from the original gift boxes. She was married in 1944 and her husband was in WWII. When he left to go to war they had been living with my grandparents and had stored the gifts in the attic. Shortly after he returned, they were divorced and the gifts had never been removed. I am still in awe at the beautiful old things I found and want to remind your readers to always check the house for attic openings that you may not have been aware of. They may hold many treasures. - Joy E.

over medium heat. Add hot milk mixture to batter a little at a time and
mix well. Bake in greased 9X13X2 pan at 350 degrees for 35 minutes

My Mom usually used the following Topping on this cake.

-- Topping --
4 Tbs. margarine
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped nuts

3 Tbs. milk

Combine topping ingredients in small saucepan. Stir over low heat until
