LATE TIPS ON Wartime Living

There are enough seeds, insecticides, and plant foods to supply everyone's needs this year. But you'll do both yourself and your country a favor if you put in your orders this month and next. Transportation is a big problem, and seed houses haven't the manpower to handle a last-minute rush come the first whiff of spring.

the man next door

WITH THE U. S. ARMY OVERSEAS-- As I muse on Christmas and the New Year, the air-raid sirens suddenly vent their mad whinny. Searchlights caress the stars. Planes hum overhead in the deep blue night. Off goes the radio momentarily, resumes with "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes," an old favorite anthem in our family.

Garden Things Yon Can Make

WANT a good solid puncheon table and some benches for that backyard picnic spot, or some small, weathered benches to blend with your garden? Want a fence gate that can't be left open to let the dogs or kids or horses swarm out?

Help the Doctor to Help You

SALLY complains, "I've got a terrible stummick-ache," and you wonder whether it's brought on by a third helping of apple pie or tomorrow's arithmetic exam. Tommy seems to have a slight rash-- measles, or just the Old Nick breaking out? Dad's snorting in the living-room. He would walk without his rubbers in a sleety rain.

you'll bask in comfort

EATING is fun. Wearing a new suit makes you feel proud and cocky. But heating is a living expense without pleasure. Heating is only a fuel bill and a lack of freezing. In the older houses it's a great belch of coal smoke fouling the air, and cold floors and cold feet and hot air that burns your nose and throat and lips and skin into two bits worth of dried beef.

4 Rooms in the Country

MR. AND MRS. ALDO LACHMAN both work on war jobs in one of the roaring production centers of Connecticut. A quiet home, then, means much to them, and when they built it, with the aid of Architect Lucius Beardsley, they turned to a region of wooded country, not too far from their work, but still completely rural.

JANUARY Outdoor Gardening Guide

FOODS gardeners, this year more than last, are realizing the need to plan ahead. They know now that the advice on more thoro soil preparation isn't mere talk but is based upon experience-- that you may fool your neighbors by scratching the soil with a hoe rather than spading deeply, but you can't fool the plants, for unless the roots can go deep the crop is miserable and drouth-stricken.
