Weight, Not Strength, the Problem
for Walnut Street Firm.

Safe-movers, six stalwart men trained in the handling of heavy things, were the only people to whom it was considered wise yesterday to entrust the transfer of a mammoth York State Cream Cheese into the show window at Fred Wolferman's.

The monster delicacy weighs 2,207 pounds, more than a ton. To admit it it was necessary to remove the glass from the display window, and the flooring had been solidly reinforced Tuesday afternoon to withstand such great weight.

This is the largest cheese ever brought to Kansas City. In speaking about it yesterday, Mr. Wolferman said: "It required special machinery and the efforts of ten expert cheese men to produce this cheese. No one but a student of dairy products or one who had devoted his life to cheesemaking would attempt it. The day's yield of more than a thousand cows, or 22,227 quarts of milk, were used. The extracting and cooking of the milk was all handled in one day, but the curing and other handling took practically two months."

The date for cutting this component of welch rarebits has not been set.
