Across the Editor's Desk

IN THIS Thanksgiving season I am sure you are all thankful that our form of government is elastic enough, and was so wisely planned by the fathers of the Republic, that great and sweeping changes can be made without violent revolution or the stifling of free press and free speech. So many nations these days are undergoing great hardship, and their people are submitting to injustice and violence because of the demands of change, that we of this country can feel a special sense of deep gratitude for the blessings of our own form of government.

It's News to Me!

In our living-room Nick and I have a chair. We've had it so long, this Queen-Anne type rocker, that its varnish is practically rubbed off, and the left arm's uncertain. We've sent it to the furniture hospital, have applied home treatments. Still at most inopportune moments, blump!-- that arm jolts loose! For a long time close friends have been patient.

IS YOUR Family Frowsy?

IT WOULD be interesting to go exploring thru an average American community to find out some of the basic reasons why members of families are impatient, irritable, and snappish toward one another-- why relationships are strained-- why they find one another hard to live with-- why, tho they love each other, they often wish each other in Jericho, and yet don't dare give plain expression to what they really think for fear of precipitating a family row.

Save Your Muscle

YES, I admit it. After using several "makes," I've come to depend on the electric-mixer or beater as one depends on a good and trusted helpmate.

A New Home in a Style 100 Years Old

THIS home breathes the dignified charm of a style popular a hundred years ago. It was known as the Greek Revival and its rise was due to the widespread interest in ancient Greece, which was brought about in that period by new researches and much literature by the writers and poets of that day.

The Fighting Fish of Siam

ONCE in a while, when you are enjoying one of Seth Parker's inimitable radio evenings, the pleasant rural placidity of the proceedings will be interrupted by a rapid-fire burst of Lizzie Hooper's staccato conversation, bristling with such learned-sounding terms as scalares, bettas, Anabas scandens, and occasional English terms almost as cryptic: live-bearers, mouth-bearers, guppies, and mud-springers.

For the Love of Peat!

WHEREVER swamps have existed for a long time on the earth's surface we have had an accumulation of material which today we 'call peat in its young stages, and coal when it becomes deeply imbedded beneath the surface of the earth.

Betty Forgot the Salt but Nobody Cared!

JANE SMITH was the first member of our Mothers' Study Club to have a child reach the adolescent age (12 to 18 years old). Naturally the rest of us were interested to see what would happen. Therefore, when she saw me approaching on this particular day, she laughed and patted the bulging shopping bag on her arm.

The Diary of a Plain Dirt Gardener

Nov. 1 Yesterday business took me near my folks, so I stayed with them last night. After I ate half a yard of country sausage and a skillet of mother's fried mush as an anchor, I set out homeward this morning. As I went by a nursery I just couldn't resist. I drove in to gossip and ended by ordering the new shrubbery I've been wanting.

Linoleums for Old and New Homes

GREETINGS-- and step right in! We don't mind your shoes a little bit; rain and dirt won't harm our hall floor. You see, it's linoleum-covered. No, I'll admit this hardly seems like linoleum in the utilitarian sense, either in hall or sunroom. But it's the same which, thru the years, has proved so durable, economical, and easy to keep clean.

A Woods Picnic

THE appetite-provoking fragrance of a broiling steak... tantalizing aroma of coffee bubbling in the pot... acrid tang of wood smoke in the nostrils. Is anything as perfect as a woods picnic on a crisp day in autumn?

Wave-rocked Oysters

FROM flat, comfortable, wave-rocked beds far under the quiet blue waters of the Chesapeake Bay (world's largest natural oyster-bed), from hillside, hilltop, and valley beds in the cooler and more robust waters of Long Island Sound and the North Atlantic; from rope park-bench beds in Italian "oyster parks" (they really call them that!); from bamboo poles erected in the bottom of Japanese bays and inlets-- comes the juicy-morseled oyster.

Afghans for Gifts

SO COMFORTABLE to snuggle down into, these new quilted afghans! Let the cold winds blow. Designed for aunts and uncles and cousins, and for big and little, we think these afghans are a most original idea for that suitable Christmas gift, or as a gift to the church's holiday bazaar. Every modern youngster naps in the daytime, so we include a child's and a baby's quilt-- the former, wonder of wonders, has an exact duplicate for dolly.

Tune Up

HOW long since you have given a look at the electric motor on your washing machine? Yes, I thought so. Not since the last time "something got wrong," and you called John to come and fix it. Not since-- well, that was months ago.
