Across the Editor's Desk

A GREAT amount of publicity is being printed and many speeches are being made these days about housing. Elaborate surveys have been made which show a deplorable condition in many communities. There is a great lack of even the simplest sanitary equipment. More light, air, sanitation, and comfort are imperatively required to bring a reasonable degree of happiness to millions now inadequately housed.

THE Diary OF A PLAIN DIRT GARDENER

By 7 this morning I was out in the garden. Chester, a neighbor boy, who's been helping me catch up, was on hand. By noon we had finished cleaning up the whole back part of the garden; that is, he did, for this being Saturday, I had to go after groceries and so on. I took the weeds we hoed out of the iris and peonies and used them to mulch the broccoli and the dahlias.

IT'S News TO ME!

IT'S TRANSPLANTING time, lawn-making time-- and this year we have new incentive: "I'm after a medal!" says Nick. "Twelve lucky families will win a medal in the Individual Home Grounds Division of the More Beautiful America Contest [see May, 1935, Better Homes & Gardens, page 64]-- have their places pointed out for real planting achievement. Why not we? At least we can try.

HOME

MY FRIEND Colonel Charles Sweeney, of the French Foreign Legion, pointed to the bit of wall that was still standing and to the pile of brick and mortar that once had been a home. It was during the summer just past and we were tramping thru a tiny French village between the River Aisne and the Chemin des Dames-- a village that had been under shellfire for almost four years.

5 STEPS TO A Good Lawn for Next Year

ONE garden question asked more frequently than any other is: "What can I do to make my lawn succeed? How can I have that velvety smoothness, that emerald green, that fine texture which makes you feel like you were walking on a heavy rug?"

Yesterday's Furnishings Meet Today's and They Get Along Beautifully

WHEN you were little did you ever make a visit of state to your grandmother? Do you remember the parlors so crowded that you couldn't see your aunt for the furnishings and the golden oak dining-room with its cut glass dishes?

Five of a Kind

TO THE scientist the life story of Marie, Annette, Cecilie, Emilie, and Yvonne is a climax of technique. To the dietitian it is a document on nutrition. To the world in general it is an almost incredible chapter in the mysterious processional of the centuries. To every parent it means an indescribable vicarious thrill of love and devotion, for there is nothing in human experience more sweet and compelling than the blooming of tender, groping, helpless babies and their first cries asking, yearning, pleading for a place in our dazzling, turbulent world.

This is an age of simplification-- simple lines in gardens as well as in swim suits, furniture, and architecture.

Childhood Quarrels ARE PUPPY STUFF

BIRDS in their little nests agree, or so the story goes. Ornithology is one of the subjects I know little about, but if the facts are correct, then birdlings are the only young I've met who can lay claim to such a state of affairs.

Enemies IN THE PILE

TREAT your rugs with kindness and respect-- they'll repay you well for years to come. Proper cleaning is an important part of the care of rugs and carpets, but it's not all. Hotel housekeepers, for instance, know that old-fashioned rolling casters play havoc with rugs. Instead, furniture glides are used under the casters, or broad-based, smooth, bakelite glides are brought into the picture instead of any casters at all.

YOU don't like to wear aprons? We don't blame you if yours resemble some of the prosaic, unfitted slip-overs we've seen. But give an apron charm plus utility and we predict that the most frivolous fudge-maker will step right into the sensible things, that frocks will stand unsullied by the sink, housework be lightened and homemakers brightened.

"STEAMED cucumbers in January!" My guest's face was a study. I'm sure she thought I had either spirited the luscious things out of a tall silk hat for that especial luncheon last winter or that I was the most shameless of hothouse spendthrifts. The fact is I'm neither a Houdini nor an extravagant hostess-- just an enthusiastic home canner!

PICKLING week in the old-time kitchen brought forth, through those warm and spicy aromas, such appetite-enticing morsels as can never be forgotten. So many of us who remember with a fleeting wave of homesickness those aroma-rich occasions, haven't tasted real old-fashioned homemade pickle since.

SIT with me on this cool porch and look down the September garden path. The trees will soon drop their leaves-- copper; molten gold, and flame. The tinge of Jack Frost will soon touch the flowers. The home view will change-- will it still hold our interest?
