LATE TIPS ON Wartime Living

War correspondents noted the trim figures of Parisians after several years of war-enforced bicycling. Now that U.

Will He Be Changed?

"DO YOU suppose he'll be changed much?" Thousands of mothers, fathers, wives, and friends are saying it. With hearts swelling to the bursting point, they are waiting to welcome Bill home. The nights of dread and uncertainty are almost done with, and nine out of 10 of our boys will be back home without scars, the way they were when we delivered them into the service of our country.

Decorations You Can Make or Buy

IT'S Christmas time! Time to dust off that box of ornaments and take inventory. Likely as not, the contents are sadly depleted and definitely the worse for wear. Budgets may be limited-- replacements scarce-- but not ideas and ingenuity. Even tho familiar doodads may be missing, this Christmas can be a festive, gay, and happy one the young fry will always remember.
