Thanksgiving Without Smugness

EACH year, in November, we Americans traditionally pause for a moment to thank God for His bounties. We think then of fat cattle, their warm breaths white in the frosty air; of shocks of corn, with snow in the crannies; of pumpkins-- bright ovals of color on the hard ground.

The General's a Gypsy--AND HIS FAMILY HAS NO HOME

THE tough sergeant's stomach was behaving like a buck private's. Sure he was seeing home for the first time in two years, but why should a street-- gravel, at that --and a plain, brick house with a few trees around it make a fella feel that way? Well, even generals were softies about home. No harm in acting like a general.

THIS GARDEN THRIVES ON Three Hours a Week

IN OAKLAND, California, are two high school instructors who wanted a small house, a just-right place where they could relax during out-of-school hours; entertain their friends; live easily and graciously. They wanted a garden, too, a garden that would more or less look after itself.

Amaryllis

BEGINNERS, and even well-informed window gardeners, sometimes complain to me that while they successfully flower newly purchased amaryllis bulbs the first season and perhaps the second year, the bulbs then become smaller and flower unsatisfactorily afterwards. To this I answer-- the sole reason is failure to keep the bulbs actively growing during the summer months.

Enjoy Your Roses Longer

WITH roses, half the fun's in showing them. And more often than not we show them as cut flowers. If our garden roses haven't been standing up as well as those we buy from the florists, it's our fault. Florists have made it their business to know what varieties to grow, when to cut the blooms, and how to handle them afterwards

G.I.'s Build in Sardinia

WHEN the boys in the B-26 squadrons in Sardinia return from a quiet afternoon's work, like blowing up a railroad bridge in northern Italy or shooting down a half dozen ME 109s, they frequently hurry out of their airplanes and as quickly as possible get to their living sites, to see if the color of the paint they ordered for their new homes has come out exactly right.

Guaranteed to Please

IT'S color we're hungry for, long before spring is due. It's color we want, and brilliant patches of it, from our spring-flowering bulbs. Lonesone tulips polka-dotted thru a border are practically lost, while the same number clustered below a flowering bush or two and tied in with friendly huddles of pansies make pictures to start your day with a smile.
