THE DIARY of a Plain Dirt Gardener

If you should ask why our dog goes around on three legs today and David has one hand bandaged, the answer is that I failed to report an exciting event yesterday; to wit, that war has reached our neighborhood. Our dog and a strange one engaged in battle on Neighbor John's rear lawn yesterday.

The Home--Foundation of Great Causes

SOMEONE has told me that bricks are made and are laid into a wall today just as they were in ancient Mesopotamia 2,000 years ago. With all our invention and science, a brick Avail built yesterday looks just like one in Nebuchadnezzar's palace in Babylon.

AT HOME IN THE "White" House OF EMPORIA

WAY BACK IN 1893 young Will White married pretty little Sallie Lindsay, and took her out West to honeymoon. When they'd been there just two weeks, there came two wires-- one to tell young Bill that he'd been fired from his reporter's job, and the second to announce that every cent they had went in a busted bank.

THE EMPORIA GAZETTE

Maybe you haven't heard a lot about William Allen White, because he's a man who prefers to keep in the background. Actually he is a man who has helped chart our nation's history --and whether or not you like it-- has guided your own personal thinking and acting.

Outdoor Gardening Guide

IN JUNE it's clearly evident that the garden is just a reflection of the gardener as the moon's only light is a reflection of the sun. Without a good managing gardener there'll be no design, no continuation of bloom, no shapely, vigorous plants.

Saved by a Pretty Face

THERE was nothing wrong with the two big houses that a pretty new face wouldn't cure, the architects decided. Two different architects and two different houses, but the same problem-- each house had a good inside plan, but a face that was heavy-jowled, dismal, and forbidding.

Confidentially, I Like a Riot

ONE DAY we found we owned a field on Cape Cod. Wild roses and Queen Ann's Lace grew there in the summer, blue asters and goldenrod in the fall, and bayberry all the time. East of us was the sea. The salt spray blew over our dunes-- and there was nothing between us and Spain. But we had no house.

Read the Label on the Can

Lifetime Food Habits Start at 12 Weeks Mother, it's up to you

WHY did America, overnight and with a bang, become nutrition-minded? Here's why. When draft board and army doctors began examining selectees, we learned with a terrific shock that we hadn't been doing the job of child-feeding the past 20 years that we thought we had. Far too large a proportion of our young men were handicapped in some physical way that could have been prevented if, from early infancy, they had had the right kind of food and formed the right sort of eating habits.

I Pleat Wallpaper for My Fireplace Fans

SOME folks pleat newspaper fans for fireplace decorations-- but I've a better idea. I use wallpaper. Every proper basement or attic has a few oddments of brightly patterned paper stored away. When you've exhausted these, the next port-of-call is your store's wallpaper department.
