New Under the Sun

DDT and rotenone dusts answer the prayers of strawberry pickers and cooks tired of having their hands gummed by the sticky froth the spittle insect leaves on strawberries. Cornell's Dr. F. G. Mundinger finds 5 percent DDT or 0.5 percent rotenone highly effective against the insect, which sucks juice out of the berries, making the fruit seedy and distorted. The froth does no damage, but is a nuisance to pickers and picker-overs.

What? You're Scared of Architects?

SOME people approach an architect with fear and trepidation. Probably they've never consulted one before; they don't know what to expect. So let's get one absurd idea out of the way once and for all. Architects are not queer birds. They're neither recluses nor wizards.

Tips to Take Yon Southwest

ON YOUR own, you'll find highways in the Southwest are good for the most part, if you keep to well-traveled roads. Prepare yourself for the jolt that comes when a first-timer is exposed to the vastness of the country, the endless, uninhabited miles, the sparseness of even little villages and trading posts.

If Stevie Won't Eat

SO MANY of your letters have to do with mealtime problems. This seems strange, doesn't it, when the impulse to eat should be as natural as breathing? I sometimes think we vitamin-taught mothers are a little too grim about feeding our children. Perhaps if Mother would relax a little and realize that Stevie will eat the right amount for good nutrition of his own accord, some of these hectic crises would disappear.

How We Tamed the Budget Bugbear

THE advent of a budget in our family was a calamity; or so it seemed. No longer was ours the happy little group that had existed when we were spending more or less haphazardly. To any fun that entailed unplanned spending the answer had to be "No." Since I had drawn up the budget, I was always the sourpuss who turned thumbs down, and I didn't like it.

November Garden Guide

YOU can still plant shrubs and perennials. In cold regions, newly set plants will need to be mulched with peatmoss, leaves, straw, or a similar covering. For the northern half of the country, dividing perennials-- except to split a big clump in half-- should be delayed until spring. Plants split into small pieces need time to grow a big root system before the ground freezes. It is seldom wise to divide coreopsis, gaillardias, veronicas, or anemones this late. If they must be moved now, you can replant them in large clumps, then divide them next spring.

Should I Mulch My Plants This Winter?

W. D. Holley says: "Yes, anywhere that peaches and forsythia don't bloom every year, cover all perennials. This is the region where you can never be sure that there will be a good snow blanket covering your plants all winter. Mulches prevent extremes in temperature. Where snow comes early, stays late, mulches have little value. There isn't a better covering than snow."
