ACROSS THE EDITOR'S DESK

MORE than half a thousand people leave for their homes each evening after a happy day's work at the Meredith publishing plant. Gigantic presses roar thru the day and night. Carloads of paper roll in, are caught up by the presses, and pour out again in millions upon millions of printed pages, assembled and bound together by the magic of machinery. Friends come from far and near to visit with us and to see how the magazine is made.

The Pocket Gopher, Night Raider Works Alone

HAD it not been for the rhyming qualifications of the word, a certain little rodent which pestered my flower beds last summer would never have been honored with the dignified name Ophir. And had I known as much about Pocket Gophers then as I do now, I certainly should have called him Pluto, for his method in dragging posies down into his underground labyrinth was very similar to that employed by the dark and gloomy god in kidnapping the fair Proserpine.
