Victory Personal on the Home Front

All OF us are agreed that victory in this war will be won most easily and at least cost of life and money if, here and now, we throw ourselves into the struggle for all we are worth, holding nothing back. If we are half-hearted or dilatory in doing the duty that lies nearest at hand-- whatever it be-- if we hesitate over sacrifices which we know to be inevitable, we may be sure that we-- and others-- will pay a double penalty in days to come.

THE DIARY OF a Plain Dirt Gardener

Note-- I have come to California on business matters. It is no pleasure trip and I am working hard and fast to get my work done. The whole family is helping. Donald does much of the driving, looks after the car, sees that the tires are inflated and rotated, that greasing and oiling are taken care of, and he takes part of my pictures.

BEES CAN MAKE YOUR SUGAR

A SPOT no bigger than your kitchen table will be the best and busiest in your garden if it has a beehive. There is fun in back-yard beekeeping, and as for honey-- well, one good hive can provide 40 to 60 pounds, which helps a lot with any family's sugar problem.

They'll Grow on You These Hedqes

NATURALLY you want privacy in your yard, and a nice hedge of living green is the way to achieve it. Some peculiar neighbors might consider any fence you build a "spite" fence; but a newly planted hedge looks so innocent, not at all the real barrier it's sure to grow into eventually.

HOMES FROM

COLLEGE TOWNS are known as idea towns. Not all the ideas are confined to the campus, tho. As an example, notice the thrifty way college-town home-owners turn unused space into rentable rooms and apartments to accommodate the annual population boom when college opens. That's an idea that can be profitably copied by homeowners everywhere!

THE BEST OF Yesterday--A DASH OF Today

WELCOME HOME spells out the antique cross-stitch sampler over the fireplace in the Collier Youngs' inviting study. And that bit of embroidered sentiment is eloquent of the whole spirit of their delightful home. You catch the feeling the moment you enter the white Dutch door and come into the friendly hallway with its New England bird-print wallpaper and oldfashioned hooked rugs that splash the tavern plank floor with color.
