Why Thanksgiving This Year?

IT IS NOT quite easy to get into the right mood this year for celebrating Thanksgiving. We know, of course, that we are still by far the most fortunate country in a sorely stricken world. But for this very reason something within us revolts against thanking the Giver of all good for advantages which are denied to multitudes of others as deserving as ourselves. It is, we think, no time for gloating --for reveling in a banquet of abundance amid a picnic of privation.

This Kitchen Got a Common-sense Cure

THERE was no doubt about it, Professor and Mrs. George Sneath's kitchen was ailing. Year after year it had grown a little more faded in looks and feeble in service until finally, even to the familiar eyes of the Sneaths, it needed some doctoring.

Tiny Gardens Chock-full of Big Ideas

I'VE been looking around a lot lately. In fact, I've been looking around a lot of lots. And it seems to me that two things are happening. First, folks with a small amount of garden space are learning how to crowd a great deal of charm and comfort into a few square feet of ground. Second, people with larger lots are breaking their gardens up into a series of outdoor "rooms"-- one room for barbecue business, another for a cutting garden, another for vegetables, and so on.

Give Roses a Head Start

NOVEMBER is the month to finish your selection of roses and get them planted. There are several species of roses that can be used as shrubs. The Rugosa Roses grow three to five feet high and make a fine appearance when planted in masses. The foliage is soft and the upright stems are spiny, making a good background for their semi-single flowers.

Gay as a Splotch of Sunshine

IT TAKES a song writer to wax really eloquent about home. He can make the most hardened realist go misty-eyed and soft-hearted over a "little gray home in the west," or a "cottage small by a waterfall." He describes home so movingly that sometimes you wonder where a song writer hangs his own hat when the day's over.

How to Live WITH Less Heat

BR-R-R-R-- there's a long, cold winter ahead. Maybe it won't be colder outside, but Uncle Sam's making the weather inside your home this year and it's going to be decidedly cooler. How cool's it going to be? Cool enough so your heating plant will use about 25 percent less fuel than normal. (This percentage was used in the Government's original announcement on fuel-oil rationing. It may be raised or lowered, but you should anticipate at least a 25-percent cut.)
