Wartime Thanksgiving on the Home Front

TODAY we thank God that we have food and clothes; that there is a roof over our heads and a fire in the furnace; that no enemy struts in our ruined streets or shuffles thru the ashes of our crops. We are grateful that we may labor with hand and mind, without the spur of fear of the concentration camp or the firing squad.

DAD'S GAME ROOM Solved Their Fuel Problem

FIRST off, don't start feeling sorry for Dad (Harold Hahn, of Kansas City, Mo.), for he's proud as shucks that "his" room is voted such a whale of a success-- even if, at present, it's not exactly the "men only" hideout he'd plotted.

Ideas FROM A HOME A Hobby FURNISHED

ONE evening, about two years ago come Michaelmas, a young man by name of Frank Brach, walked into a neighborhood Make-It-Yourself shop, showed the instructor a miniature grandfather clock, and said, "I don't know the difference between a hammer and a sack of nails, but I want to make this clock in life size."

HOW TO Garden IN Stone

SAYS Herbert West: "Winchester (Massachusetts) was founded in 1638, and in the course of time the wilderness was tamed-- all but one spot. That was a mess. In the highest hill was an abandoned stone quarry, at its base an ancient swamp adorned with forest litter, boulders, and ferns. Thru this swamp flowed a brook fed by seasonal springs.

Will You Live in a Prefabricated House?

Keep toilet tissue handy. A small shelf over the bath table is a handy thing, and handier yet if you have a toilet-paper holder fastened under it, containing a roll of facial-type toilet tissue. Use it when you change the baby, to wipe his chin when he drools, etc.-- Mrs. J. S. Burnette, Lakewood, Ohio.

We Moved in With Our Eves Shut

That, in brief, is what happened once we'd bought a nine-room house that was way past its prime. But it doesn't explain why we passed up all the neat-but-small bungalows for a creaky antiquarian. You see, after nine years of being jam-packed into a four-room apartment, we weren't in the mood to count our space in inches. Besides, a small city like South Whitley, Indiana, has few houses for sale these days, so it isn't advisable to wait until a "For Sale" sign is tacked on the Perfect Home.
