Better Homes & Gardens January 1947 Magazine Article: Among Ourselves

Pages: 6, 9

Among Ourselves

We've seen so many pictures of General Dwight D. Eisenhower that we almost feel we could say "Howdy, Ike" if we met him on the street. But we can't say the same for Mrs. Eisenhower, rarely pictured in newspapers or magazines. So when this picture of the general and his wife came across our desk, we thought we'd pass it on to you.

Teaching "Please" Takes Patience

IF YOUR child's manners, or lack of them, worry you, take a look at the adults around him. Too often we grownups, while extremely polite to each other, forget courtesy when dealing with children. Aunt Ethel, who remarks in front of 4-year-old Jane, "It's too bad she isn't pretty like her sister," has no right to be shocked when Jane refuses to kiss her good-bye.

New Under the Sun

Adding fluorine to garden soils isn't likely to make the food more valuable in preventing tooth decay. Fluorine in drinking water helps make better teeth, but its presence in foods seems unimportant, according to the U.S.D.A. Plants seldom absorb much fluorine from the soil, regardless of how much is added. The standard phosphorus fertilizer, superphosphate, already contains about 1½ percent of fluorine, and practically every mixed plant food contains superphosphate.
