What Are Children Being Taught?

THE little fellow was only three, and he had lost his mother in a department-store crowd. If you had seen his expression when he found her again, you would have laughed at the relief written upon his face. Unhappiness to him consisted in having no one to depend upon, to make decisions for him, and to fend of! the world. Since we are all like that when we are little, is it any wonder that many of us spend our lives unconsciously looking for a substitute for our lost mothers, drifting from one leader to another, desperately avoiding decisions and determined courses of action in the crises of life?

Your Emotions Can Make You Sick

ILLNESSES caused or intensified by nervous and mental tensions-- worry, fear, guilt, hate, frustration, aggression, anxiety-- are on the march. Even in peacetime their toll is staggering. Doctors estimate that about half the cases seen in their ordinary practice spring from emotional conflicts or are aggravated immeasurably by them.

Wartime Worries Dept.

Q Why is it that everyone is telling the families of us furloughed or discharged servicemen how they ought, to "treat" us when we come home? Some of us are getting pretty fed up. Does everyone think we're all sad sacks?

NEW USES FOR YOUR DINING ROOM

OF ALL the rooms in your home, the most maligned is the dining room. No one condemns the kitchen, the living room, bedrooms, or bathrooms as useless or easily dispensable. And yet, in thousands of homes recently built or remodeled, the dining room has been scorned completely or admitted only as a characterless nook in the living room or a space in the kitchen. NO USE trying to force it-- you can't fit Yesterday's dining room gracefully into Tomorrow's house. Why this sudden condemnation of the good old dining room?

Do Modern Children Need Modern Discipline?

HAVE modern theories of discipline broken down? Is that why there's so much delinquency-- because American parents have been relying upon "reason" and "understanding" instead of spanking? Must we return to the Biblical rod to save our children, and to prepare them for the stern realities it now appears they will have to face?

The Men Come Out of It in the Garden

HOME FROM AMERICA

Gardening With Pots

WHEN we garden with pots we're after concentrated color and immediate effects. So we use stocky plants already in bloom, or close to it. The color of the pots, kegs, and boxes counts in the picture, too, and here's where a little paint can do wonders.

FRESH PAINT for Porch and Outdoor Jobs

PAINT is more than a brightener-upper these days. It's a veritable lifeguard to your irreplaceable possessions. Take that metal porch furniture you'll be toting up from the basement, those wooden garden chairs you can trundle out into the sun, your awnings, terrace umbrella, and fiber porch rugs. They're now treasures to be cared for lovingly, to be protected against rust and rot with their own special brand of life insurance paint.

Hints for liny Travelers

YOUNG MOTHERS don't have to be told, I'm sure, not to take any unnecessary trips with their babies. Those of you whom we see on the trains and buses aren't traveling just to see the country, but to join a dad who is so hungry for his family he can't stand it any longer. Or to see one who is shoving off, or to meet one who has a brief furlough. Such trips are necessary for the morale of our fighting men and to build a family Spirit that will last thru long separations.

Try These Pot and Pan Preservers

Proper Pan Handling is a gentle art. Avoid dents and breakage-- spare knobs and handles by washing one pan at a time, storing in such a way as to avoid collisions-- lids in a file, pans well arranged on shelves, not loose in crowded drawers.

Cut Flowers Last Longer When You...

DO: Carry a bucket of water to the garden when cutting flowers, particularly roses. Much of the vitality of a flower is lost the first few minutes after cutting, especially during abnormally hot days, if it isn't plunged into water immediately.

June Gardening Guide

JUNE brings early vegetables and loads of color from perennials and the very early annuals. A home gardener can really enjoy himself this month. The peak planting period is past and downright hot weather hasn't brought the need for heavy watering and bug fighting. By the first of June, the main crop of tomatoes may be set. Marglobe, Rutgers, Pritchard, and Stone are good varieties to choose.
