2-1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon soda
1 cup cola
2/3 cup butter
2 tablespoons cocoa
2 eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 teaspoons vanilla
1-1/2 cups tiny marshmallows

Instructions

Stir together flour, sugar and soda, set aside. In a saucepan bring cola, butter and cocoa to boiling. Add the hot mixture to the flour mixture and mix. Add eggs, buttermilk and vanilla stirring until combined. Gently stir in marshmallows. Pour cake batter into a greased and floured 9x13-inch baking pan. Bake in a 350 degree oven about 30 minutes. A toothpick in the center of the cake should come out clean. While cake is baking mix 1/2 cup butter, 1/4 cup cocoa and 1/4 cup cola and bring to boil. Add 2-1/2 cups powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla. This is the topping. Transfer cake in pan to a wire rack. Immediately spread cake with topping. Thoroughly cool cake on rack.

1864 — 150 years ago: A fine lumber mill is on the course of erection at Andalusia. A flouring mill at that location is doing a fine business.
1889 — 125 years ago: J.B. Lidders, past captain of Beardsley Camp, Sons of Veterans, returned from Paterson, N.Y., where he attended the National Sons of Veterans encampments.
1914 — 100 years ago: President Wilson announced that he had received from the imperial chancellor of Germany a noncommittal reply to his inquiry into a report that the emperor was willing to discuss terms of peace.
1939 — 75 years ago: Delegates at the Illinois Conference of the Methodist Church in Springfield voted to raise the minimum pay of ministers so that every pastor would get at least $1,000 annually.
1964 — 50 years ago: An audience of more than 2,600 persons jammed into the Davenport RKO Orpheum theater with a shoe horn feasted on a Miller-Diller evening that was a killer night.

1989 — 25 years ago: A few years ago, a vacant lot on 7th Avenue and 14th Street in Rock Island was a community nuisance. Weeds grew as high 18 inches. Today, the lot has a new face, thanks to Michael and Sheila Rind and other neighbors who helped them turn it into a park three weeks ago.
