ACROSS THE EDITOR'S DESK

"PALS," said a soldier, "are just a couple of guys who are afraid of the same thing." Shared dangers and common fears make us what we are.

It's News Tomorrow

Westinghouse has two new lamp features for your postwar home. Infra-red lamps will serve a variety of uses: drying of hair, laundry, and fingernail polish; protection of people or plants from cold-air drafts; five- to 30-minute dehydration of food; cold morning warm-up of car motors. Speed and efficiency of radiant infrared rays, which are comparable to a dose of sun, are indicated by their ability to dry an all-over automobile paint job in five or six minutes instead of the 50 minutes required by the customary prewar process.

My Home Is Not an Incubator

WE HEAR and read a lot about the postwar world-- the better world-- these turbulent days. We see foreflashes of the color and form of things to come, especially of houses and their furnishings. And from my personal observations, the ideal postwar home is to be an incubator; its furnishings will be accessories to the incubator and we shall be the eggs.

No Cars on Main Street

THERE are no cars on Main Street in Linda Vista, California. Instead, there are long stretches of lawn. Instead of hot pavements and trolley tracks there are benches to sit on, shrubbery, flowers, trees. Instead of garish store fronts and a raucous discord of signs there are the order and peace of an early village green.

If You Had a Little Greenhouse

IF YOU had a little greenhouse, right now, snapdragons, late chrysanthemums, and fragrant freesias could be in full bloom. Tulips and daffodils would be coming along to take up when the first group stops flowering. There could be Wedgewood Iris to mix with them for showy bouquets. Regardless of freezing winds and tons of snow and ice out-of-doors, buds on anemones and showy ranunculus would be set to burst into Mardi Gras colors.

Fit This House to Your Future

LAST September, when we launched our series, "Tomorrow You Can Live Like This," our editorial mind's eye saw it as a continual room-by-room storehouse of ideas from which you could pick and assemble your own ideal House of Tomorrow. Then, quite unexpectedly, we found ourselves face to face with a complete small house so typically representative of the postwar home wants of the average young family that it literally forced itself into our series between last month's "Bedrooms for Children" and next month's "Bedrooms for Adults."

January Outdoor Gardening Guide

JANUARY frequently gives a few warm days for outside work. And everything you can crowd into these days will help later when spring really breaks. If the ground is frozen and bare of snow you can sow grass seed. Action of future freezes and thaws will cover the seed for an early start. It takes grass seed a few days to soak and get ready for germination. If it's on the ground it will start much earlier in the season, and being a hardy perennial it will not be hurt by later freezes.
