Better Homes & Gardens June 1951 Magazine Article: Are nice

Pages: 6, 9, 126, 127, 128, 129

Article

Are nice "things" necessary?

Number 300 Mulberry Street is a drab old brick-and-graystone building with chipped, high front steps and two fresh coats of soot. You'll find it in one of downtown New York's unlovelier sections. It was built just after the Civil War, and in the subbasement are dungeons the size of two cots, and iron chains that say it used to be a prison.

Don't give your children the jitters!

Without even realizing it, and with the best of intentions, you may make your youngsters afraid. Afraid of the everyday events of living, afraid to try new things, afraid of vague and imaginary dangers. You may think you are just being loving and protective, but if you're tense and anxious all the time, your fears will spill over onto your boy or girl. The result may be chronic anxiety, which will handicap them now and in the future as adults.

Are you in the market for a Four-bedroom house?

The family that can't put four bedrooms to good use is almost nonexistent. If you have three children or more, you can't live comfortably with less than four bedrooms. If you have two children, the extra bedroom can be a study and guest room. If you have one child, you have both guest room and study. If your children are grown and gone, you need the space more than ever when they bring their children back to visit.

Seven vacations for the price of one!

George Washington, who is supposed to have christened it "The Empire State," must have been a vacationing man himself. For the commonwealth of New York is an empire of mountains, lakes, rivers, farms, peoples, impressive buildings, and historic shrines. There's no like area in America with more different things to see and do.

The most abused grass in the world

There's ripping, tearing, crushing action on the grass at the Stadium, home of the American League's Yankees. It starts with the first jolting impact of horsehide and second- growth ash and a runner streaking to first in the mid-April opener. It lasts through some 70 home games and the World Series (13 world championships since 1923) in October. To one Yank of 23-years standing, the Stadium is considerably more than the site of team conquest.

How to fish if yon don't know how

Many a family has shied away from fishing because it doesn't know a fly from a fishworm-- or which you use to catch what. The editors of Better Homes & Gardens, who don't know much about fishing either, asked us to write a piece for amateurs, and their wives and kids, who get tangled up in the tackle, and let even the little ones get away.

Help your kids keep busy this summer

Each year when summer approaches, do you get that "Well, school's out-- here come the kids again!" feeling? Not that they aren't fun to have around, but oftentimes their inability to round up interesting things to do makes inroads into your domestic routine. Vacations frequently become boring for children after the first few hectic days and often are breeding periods for troublemaking.

The diary of a plain dirt gardener

June 1 After a long and loud oration by me, the family task force sallied forth after supper tonight. David went to work to get more ground ready for late vegetables. Donald cultivated earlier vegetables coming up and also went over prepared ground not yet sown. His idea was to kill out a few million little weeds now germinating.
