Filling the Empty Places in Life

"SPACE," said an astronomer, "is interesting precisely because it is not empty. I should find nothing to study in a void. But here, at night, I see the stars and clouds of stars that form our galaxy. I find great massy clouds of tenuous gas and random atoms between the billions of stars in our galaxy. Far away from our galaxy of stars, I find millions upon millions of alien galaxies, each with its unnumbered millions of suns, scattered thruout the five hundred millions of light years that lie in the range of our greatest telescope.

Wartime Worries Dept.

Q When I came back home after only six months overseas, my 18-months-old baby didn't recognize me, and my three-year-old son resented his mother's interest in me, my intrusion into the home setup, and my attempts to make him mind. They plainly regarded me as an outsider trying to crash a family group that was quite complete without me. Is there anything I can do to overcome this during my next absence from home?

The Man Next Door

Which of the sexes is the vainer is still a moot question. But I observe that many a wife who needs only a 60-watt light to perform her magic at her boudoir dressing table has a husband who needs at least 100 watts to shave by.

"Gardening Is a Way of Life a Profoundly Happy Way of Life"

FOR better or for worse, I am an inveterate amateur gardener. I shall die one. I am a bit "touched" about every green-growing thing on earth. This queerness has not put me in any institution; it has kept me out of one.

A Bath-Dressing Room

WE HEAR splashes from all sides as trick bathroom designs are dropped into the postwar pool. Some are nightmares of gadgetry, others are the same old stuff fluffed into an idiot's delight of kaleidoscopic colors.

Make Mine Roses!

WHEN men gardeners begin to take their "off-time" hobbies seriously they almost always decide to concentrate on one flower family. I choose the rose because for me it does everything: it fulfills every desire I ever had to grow flowers that can grip and hold my interest thru the entire gardening season.

I Choose Chrysanthemums

I COULD hardly sleep the night after I first saw massed beds of the hardy outdoor chrysanthemums now known as the University of Chicago Strain. This was four years ago during the first week of October and those were the most beautiful mums I'd ever dreamed of.

I'll Grow Delphiniums!

I LIKE to grow exciting flowers in my garden! Growing ordinary things never appealed to me. I think I first grew delphiniums because they were regarded as difficult. The challenge of that did appeal to me. And I like a garden that "grows up" to look you in the face. That's why now delphiniums rank first among all my fine flowers.

Pansies Are My Favorites

EVERY year seeds of nearly 4,000 different species and varieties of flowers pass over my desk, seeds for the greatest single collection of annuals and perennials in the world. Many of these I grow in my own garden, while others I check in trial grounds operated by specialists. Before the war it was my duty and my privilege to travel thousands of miles every year to examine and evaluate the latest masterpieces of the world's leading plant breeders. As far as was humanly possible, I have tried to see every important flower at its best.

They Live to Eat

DUNCAN HINES, the all-American gourmet, has been telling people since 1936 where to get a good meal when dining out. His red, pocket-sized book, Adventures in Good Eating, packed in the glove compartment beside the road map in prewar days, now peeks out of the back pocket of dusty G. I. trousers and the crowded traveling cases of tagalong brides and wartime businessmen.

It's NEWS to Me!

Shredded redwood bark is a year-'round mulch. Spaded into your garden, it keeps heavy, lumpy soils broken, and binds light, crumbly soils. It lasts several years. As a surface cover, it insulates roots from heavy frost. This is free of weed seeds, and fungus resistant.
