Across the Editor's Desk

A VERY valuable and important new agency for the relief of home owners was created by Congress last summer, and approved by President Roosevelt June 13, 1933, and will probably be in operation when this issue reaches you. It is called the Home Owners' Loan Corporation, and its purpose is to refinance homes, not exceeding $20,000 in value, which are already mortgaged and in distress.

It's News to Me!

THERE ARE cheeses and cheeses, some fit best one time, some another. And, so help me, it takes a man to discriminate! Grated Parmesan over spaghetti, nippy Camem bert on crackers, Swiss nut-sweet and ice-cold for a lunch, good old American and apple pie.

What October Means in California

IF YOU were to ask a California gardener which is the most important garden month to him, he would say "October"-- that is, if he is a planner as well as a planter. For, while most other sections of the United States are putting their gardens to bed at this time, we are planning how to keep up a continuous succession of bloom so that there may never be a dull day.

Put on the Pan--the Right One!

THE largest part of the cooking done by our average family is done on top of the stove. Yet how haphazardly we choose our kettles and saucepans and other top-of-the-stove cooking utensils. But when we know that the right kind of utensil will actually save fuel, make cooking easier, and produce better-cooked foods, then it becomes a matter of some importance.

JAPAN'S countryside is beautiful at cherry-blossomtime. Then each year the Japanese hold a national holiday just to admire the beauty of the cherry blossoms. Holland, too, has its season of floral loveliness, when the tulip and the hyacinth fields bloom, enlivening with bold patches of brilliant, glorious colors the flat Dutch countryside, with its windmills and its canals.

Caveman Food

MORE than 12,000 years ago a low-browed fellow sat in the doorway of his cave in southern France and carved on a piece of reindeer bone a surprisingly good picture of a salmon.
