Bedtime comes easy at our house

Before our son was born, my husband and I were frequent spectators (and occasional victims) of the bedtime shenanigans of our friends' young ones. They would finally fall asleep, of course. But their parents would be limp and spent, and a social evening spoiled.

WHAT'S NEW in home furnishings?

Now that summer's half over, it's a good time to take stock of your porch and outdoor living areas. Think back over the parties and family fun you've had the last few weeks, and see if there's anything which would make outdoor living easier and more comfortable.

How air conditioning will work in your future ear

If you've been wondering when they're going to offer air conditioning (refrigerated air) for automobiles, the answer is, it's here. As you might expect, air-conditioning systems are being manufactured in Texas where summer heat is the incentive and where the price doesn't discourage wealthy oilmen. The price (installed) for most late-model cars is about $700, but one company is preparing to offer a unit for low-priced cars that can be installed for $400.

INSECT BITES

How much you use and enjoy the outdoors in summer depends largely (zinngg) on how soon the mosquitoes drive you indoors (slap) in the evening, and the extent to which you and your family are plagued by other biting and stinging insects (scratch). It boils down to that.

All-in-a-line house planning

One of these days you'll wake up wanting to build a new house. Your eyes will take on a faraway stare. Your mouth will be dry, your cheeks flushed, and your brow feverish. Unless you're exceptional, you'll likely have doubts about your state of mind.

If your lot leaves you little leeway--Try this house for size

Most modern houses take a good deal of space. But, as you probably know if you're thinking of building, big lots are hard to find, and the ones 'you find are hard to pay for, especially if all you can afford is a small house.

Arrange furniture from your easy chair

The way you arrange furniture in your rooms can make space-- or steal it. You can place a chair one way, and block a passageway; move it a foot or two, and clear the way for family traffic.

For a relaxing vacation, there's only one CAPE COD

Would you like to make an ocean voyage at the wheel of your own car? Then the place you should visit is Cape Cod. On this enchanted 64-mile peninsula, jutting out into the Atlantic from the mainland of Massachusetts, sand and surf, dunes and moorlands, pine forests and warm summer sunshine combine to transport you far out to sea-- but at a cost that is only a fraction of the tariff charged on any ocean liner. This year, the 350th anniversary of the discovery of Cape Cod, you can make this memorable trip in solid comfort, visiting not only the Cape but also the islands that lie drowsing just offshore-- Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard.

Cooler-offers

When it comes to living comfortably in summer's heat, Fido has the right idea! A smart dog simply crawls under the porch or a leafy shrub and dozes the day away stretched out on the cool, black earth. But since we can't very well do likewise, here are other, more practical ways to beat the heat:
