Across the Editor's Desk

FRANK BUCK isn't the only man who "brings 'em back alive." Do you know how much you owe to the plant-explorers of the United States government service and of specially endowed foundations? They are especially equipped men-- of good physique and mind, well trained in botany and horticulture-- who search the far corners of the globe for new plants that may be fitted into the American scheme of things.

THE Diary OF A PLAIN DIRT GARDENER

This morning over all outdoors there were frost crystals that made things look like fairyland. By the time the sun had melted these, I could tell from afar that summer is over and fall is here for sure.

IT'S News TO ME!

1 Nick found a portable wall lamp (Sketch 1) which has an opal glass bowl tucked inside to prevent glare-- its I. E. S. tag is sketched. This tag on any lamp means the design has been approved for close work (and no eyestrain!) by the Illuminating Engineering Society.

The Family Parasite

MARCIA is the youngest daughter of the Brown family. Most of the Browns are self-reliant, upstanding people who pull their own weight in the boat, draw out of difficulties under their own power, keep their troubles to themselves, and consume their own smoke.

I Know Something New About

BUT who believes all that nonsense from the dark past from which this Spanish proverb arose? Today things are altogether different. Women, of course, just won't stand for any of that treatment, and even the modern dog trainer knows that a piece of juicy meat is more effective than the whip, while in the world of trees, flowers, and plants, learned horticulturists with specs make elaborate notes of comparisons between happy and sulky specimens.

Our Five-Room Garden

NO ONE lives in a one-room house if he can help it-- so why have a oneroom garden-- a garden all of which can be seen at a glance-- a garden bereft of a single surprise? If a quick walk around one's place reveals all there is to be seen, the time has come to take action!

Keeping the Home Wheels

ONCE the fireplace was the center of domestic activity. Now it's the electric meter and its twin, the gas meter. Bed-making is about the only domestic operation that hasn't yet been geared to an electric motor. And some electric-appliance manufacturer may right now be concocting an ingenious apparatus that pops out from under the bed at the flick of a switch, unlimbers its chromium-plated arms, smoothes and tucks each sheet and blanket into place, fluffs and pats the pillows, and finally folds up its crazy arms and crawls back under the bed.

WHICH Garden Books DO YOU READ?

Harry R. O'Brien, the "Dirt Gardener": It wasn't a garden book at all, but rather an elementary high-school textbook of botany, written by Dr. L. H. Bailey, that first turned my interest to flowers. I no longer own the book. I've forgotten its correct name. For all I know it may be out of print.

That Beloved Air of Being Lived In

THE day we went to see the George Halls in their pleasant Colonial house set on a steep bluff overlooking a winding little street in Westport, Connecticut, Mrs. Hall was standing on the sloping lawn, bareheaded. She wore a red sport coat, the while shading her eyes with her hand as she superintended a pair of Italian workmen who were building flagstone steps up to the front door from the street.

Quilts With Ancient Heritage

FADS come and fashions go, but beautiful quilts are in the heirloom class forever. For quilts are quality folks, with traditions and ancestry. "Star of the West" traces its lineage back thru "Henry of the West" and "Clay's Choice" to Henry Clay himself. Names of great enterprises and ideals, of statesmen, heroes, and even presidents, of battles and campaigns, snug neighborhoods, and sovereign states are all abundant on the family tree of quilts.

Sometimes the pilot light accumulates so much carbon on the hood that it makes fumes and burns unsteadily. The simple remedy is to unscrew the pilot light from the range, put it in a vise, and bore a large hole in the top of the hood. The amount of gas used by the pilot light is adjusted by a screw at the button end.

IT'S IMPORTANT, whether you're building a new home or not, for you to know what the "latest things" in home construction are-- materials, equipment, techniques. You may not approve of them all (not all change is progress!), but you will have done what you owe yourself as a homeowner: you'll have given careful consideration to everything that makes up your home.

Fleeta Brownell Woodroffe, authority on rock-garden plants, Oriental Poppies, and bulbs: It's a confirmed "Bowles-ite" I am when it comes to favorite garden books. It was a long time ago-- when I should have been studying my first-year Latin-- that I discovered among my mother's garden books the first of the matchless trio-- "My Garden in Spring," "My Garden in Summer," and "My Garden in Autumn and Winter"-- three fat and delightful volumes written by that kindly humorist, careful student, eager collector, artist, and admirable English gentleman-- E.
