Starter:
Place starter (in plastic bowl with several holes punched through lid) in refrigerator 4 - 5 days. Then take out and feed the starter ingredients. Mix starter ingredients in small bowl and add to starter. Let stand out of refrigerator 8 - 12 hours (in plastic bowl with holes punched through lid). This will not rise, only bubble. At end of 8 - 12 hours, take one cup of starter out to make bread and return remainder to refrigerator. Keep in refrigerator 4 - 5 days and then feed again as above. If not making bread, give or throw away one cup of starter. Repeat all the above steps whether making bread or not. It must be fed.

Bread:
In large bowl make a stiff dough of the bread ingredients. Mix well. Grease bottom and sides of bowl as well as top of dough and let rise over night (8 hours or more) out of refrigerator, covered lightly with wax paper. Knead lightly a few times on floured board and divide into 3 parts. Place each into a greased loaf pan, lightly covering top of each loaf with oil or oleo. Let rise 4 - 5 hours covered lightly with wax paper. Place dough on lowest rack of oven and bake at 350 for 30 - 35 minutes.
Dough may be used for rolls, sweet rolls, etc. (3 regular size loaves, or 2 loaves and 1 dozen rolls or 5 little rolls).

Personal Notes:
This is Mrs. Bea Woodard's famous homemade bread recipe. She often shared her homemade loaves of bread with our family. Jenny got the starter from her several times and made homemade bread to share during the holidays.
