Pages: 6, 185, 187

Article

We can vaccinate against T.B.

In a little Hungarian village, a nurse, wearing a "Danmark" shoulder patch on her gray uniform, paused while vaccinating a ragged urchin and looked out the window of the drab dispensary. Starting at her desk, the long line of toddlers, teen-agers, and adults carrying babes in arms stretched clear across the dusty town square.

There may be a Fortune around your home!

Have you dreamed of hunting for buried treasure-- an iron cask filled with "pieces of eight"? Most of us have, at one time or another. Thousands have attempted to find the buried loot of pirates, have engaged in expeditions to faraway places in the hope of finding riches. Thousands have invested their life savings in mining or oil ventures, hoping for rich rewards. Few have been lucky, for it would appear that more has been sunk into the ground than has ever been taken out.

They walk in the dark

I'd never seen Pontiac, Michigan, before in my life. So when we got out of the station wagon on a side street and Fred Maynard, trainer at the Leader Dog League for the Blind, tied the black blindfold over my eyes and handed me the dog's harness, I almost called off the idea.

Article

Northern California

The Northern California sweep is a wonderful combination of sky-high lakes (Tahoe) and live volcanoes (Lassen); of mountains that are a sum total of what mountains should be (Sierra Nevada cloud-nudgers in the 10,000-14,000-foot class); of the oldest living things (the redwoods which were old when Christ was born); of beautiful ocean shores which remind globe-trotters of Cornwall in some places, of the Riviera in other spots, and which look out to infinity-- or in the direction of China, depending on your imagination.

If your child shows signs of Selfishness or discontent

Our 10-year-old daughter brought her friend, Ruth, home the other day. Ruth lives in a nice house on the next street. There's a television aerial on the roof, and I've often noticed a good-looking, new car parked outside. But what impressed Ruth at our house was our old-fashioned, battle-scarred piano. "Oh!" she said to my daughter. "You have a piano! Do you take lessons? Gosh, I'd give anything if I could take piano!"

Figured walls or backgrounds should be taken into consideration in any grouping. In the picture on the left below, notice how the leaf arrangement in the vase on top of the cabinet seems to be lost in the pattern background. You need a large, plain object to stand out against the wallpaper, as in the other picture. This is the same principal you use when hanging pictures on a highly patterned background-- good, wide mats so the picture won't get lost.

You'll be ahead at least five ways if you start flower and vegetable seeds indoors now. You can grow the newest and best varieties-- exactly what you want-- in preference to standard kinds you can buy as plants. You will save money, and your plants will produce earlier. They will be ready to set out when you are ready. And you'll have fun doing it.
