America's Opportunity in a Hungry World

THIS fall's harvesttime once was counted upon by many authorities to ease the world's food crisis. But the easing, if any, will in all likelihood be largely statistical, and not something quickly converted into meals for the hungry. For a long period to come, perhaps for a year or more, a vast multitude of human beings will still languish in the shadow of starvation, and great numbers of them will die.

We Took to Our Wheels

1896 "Mother screamed, father swore, and the horses shied at our first encounter with a horseless carriage. Tho we'd seen pictures of rich folks riding around in imported French runabouts at Newport and places like that and had heard Uncle Will describe the 'Famous Duryea Motor-Wagon' exhibited by Barnum & Bailey last summer, this was a terrifying experience, at least to Mother. Bicycles-- Americans owned 10,000,000 of them-- were bad enough, with village sports pedaling like mad halfway across the state, and nice girls coasting down byways in shorter and shorter skirts, even bloomers!

Less housework, obviously, means extra hours of leisure for the varied activities of contented living-- playing more with the children, golfing or movie-viewing, playing bridge, reading, or even keeping a diary.
