The Unspent Spirit

What Your Boy at the Front Is Thinking

THIS is a letter your son asked me to write you. He knew I'd written for you before in this magazine, articles and things like that; and he asked me, the next time I wrote you, to tell you that I'd seen him. Mail takes a long time coming from a battle front, sometimes.

OUR first long, cold, fuelrationed winter is over-- and never have Americans given spring such a glad-hand!

Streamline Your Spring Gardening

THIS year organization of all the garden work will be of infinite value. Here's my plan: Set Mondays aside for spraying. Vary the spray according to the season and the pest at hand. You'll need to do some spraying and dusting every week during the summer, especially with roses and vegetables. In this manner you'll keep diseases from getting started and will have a definite time to smack down the insects as soon as they appear.
