IT'S news TO ME!

From the Vermont hills-- and simply delicious! We lifted the lid to find this log cabin neatly filled with pure maplesugar hearts. A new process makes them firm for handling, yet creamy and smooth. Maple-sugar flavor inspires my February entertaining: for a Lincoln's Birthday luncheon table, ecru (or unbleached muslin) cloth, set with pottery, and a cabin at either end, to be opened later and the sweets served for dessert.

LIGHT! A candle blown by the wind, flickering, stabbing the darkness in some wilderness hut. The bright lights of Broadway. The comforting beacons of light that guide the ships of the sea and the air. What is it?

Sturdy Youngsters Guaranteed

MARIETTA sat at the small table in the nursery school and chewed and chewed.

Each Cutting Job needs its Special Knife

JANE had been a school-teacher before she settled into a new four-rooms-and-bath in the suburbs. I spent a week-end with her recently in this attractively furnished home.
