The Battalions OF LIFE

A CERTAIN man who fought in the last war is unable to understand how this war can possibly be won, because he isn't enrolled in the fighting services. It is incomprehensible to him that a military leadership so obtuse as to be indifferent to the value of his experience and patriotism could possibly lead to victory. Perhaps he hasn't stated the case to himself quite so baldly, but such is the real essence of his thinking.

"TODAY We're Planning for TOMORROW"

Dear Editors: I guess the reason we like Better Homes & Gardens so much is that you don't lose sight of the main issue-- that most of us are going on living in spite of everything, and the plans we make now will determine how worth while that living will be in the future.

Grow the BIG 3

THESE THREE-- tomatoes, beans, carrots-- are probably your best three all-around home-garden vegetables. Tomatoes and beans produce more food per square foot of garden than any other. All three are comparatively easy to grow. Successive plantings give you food thru the season. And tomatoes can be juiced, beans dried, carrots pit-stored to give you vitamin-rich eating thru the winter, too.

Why Waste the Front Yard?

IT'S a queer American notion-- that gardens belong only in the back yard. If you haven't planted your place yet, or if you've no room in the back yard for vegetable and fruit-growing because your back yard is your flower and ornamental garden, how about moving some of the flowers around front?

Nimble Fingers Did It!

"WORRIED or weary? Put your fingers to play!" That's the sort of thing Marion Bowen believes in, and practices, whenever there's a spare hour to be smuggled out of her strenuous days. And the beauty she's woven for her home in these forget-it-and-relax moments will set your own 10 fingers dancing!

Six-Room Success Formula

TOO MANY small homes are a hodgepodge of undersized rooms thrown together with no particular theme in mind. At any rate, that's how the Dr. E. E. Butlers of Louisville, Kentucky, feel about it. The important thing in home-planning, to their way of thinking, isn't the number of rooms, but how they're arranged. Rooms have to be shifted and mixed according to a careful formula before any house is a well-integrated home.

Help Yourself to These Food-Savers

I've found that the fruit sirup from my home-canned fruits is a grand sugar-saver, and makes desserts twice as good. I use it as part of the liquid in rice puddings, brown betty, and tapioca, also in gelatine salads and desserts. I even add it instead of water when baking apples.

Grow These "Different" Annuals

LAST summer I had a very unusual border for the annual garden. The flowers came on from the middle of July until frost and a daintier border can't be imagined: the plants stood less than a foot high, and the blossoms, about an inch across, suggested the pleasant faces of violas. Colors were fantastically lovely-- white, yellow, pink, lemon, orange, crimson, rose, blue --many shades, with piquant markings on all.
