I got to know my boy

AS a father of three boys, I've had (and will have) my share of the problems and more than my share of the happiness that comes with being a dad.

That trip was an experience I'd like to tell you about.

HAVE YOU HEARD?

If you're one of the millions who consider White Dutch clover in lawns a nuisance, here's good news. The new weed killer, 2,4,5-T (a close relative of 2,4-D) has been found to be deadly to clover.

At least one manufacturer now includes 2,4,5-T in his 2,4-D weed killer, and has had excellent kill on all broad-leaved weeds that ordinarily infest the lawn.

Live in comfort on your porch

You'll still find them on elm-shaded side streets that look like a page out of a Booth Tarkington novel-- wide porches that sweep around the front of the house like the brim of a Stetson. The big veranda with its fancy balusters has gone the way of other types of Victorian elegance. But the summer habit of sitting out is as popular today as it was when Grandpa hooked his heels on the front porch rail and loosened his celluloid collar.
