Highway hazards and how to avoid them

Let's be frank. You're reading this article because you are interested in protecting your life while driving. Of course, you're interested in saving other people's lives, too. But first and foremost, it's your own tender neck you're looking out for. In driving, however, you can't be downright selfish. When you look out for yourself, you've got to look out for others, too. It stands to reason you can't get into a great deal of trouble alone.

Article

Marriage isn't a reform school

The missionary lurks in most of us-- the potential reformer. And in no relationship in life are we more prone to spit on our hands and yield to the itch, "I'll make him over," than in marriage. For here, as nowhere else, is the poor benighted heathen (male or female) so completely captive. He may howl and beat his bosom; he may even, in sheer desperation, reform as we intend. But short of getting a lawyer, he literally can't escape!

Planning your estate doesn't end with a will

What happens when one spouse is left to manage a family's business affairs? One thing is certain-- they (the affairs) won't be left unchanged, and delayed or unwise action can be costly.

The hospital that atom-bombs cancer

On the University of Chicago's campus, Stagg Field-- named after Alonzo A. Stagg, "grand old man of football"-- has long been closed to fans. The gate is now barricaded with boards and barbed wire. Near the entrance is a plaque which reads: On December 2, 1942 man achieved here the first self-sustaining chain reaction and thereby initiated the controlled release of atomic energy.

Space-makers for small rooms

WANT TO MAKE your rooms look larger and actually "live larger"? You can. Here are live space-making ideas which apply anywhere. We've tested them in a budget-size builder's house on the next six pages. Color is your biggest aid. A space-making color scheme uses closely related colors. It avoids big, eyecatching designs which look busy and crowded, or strong color contrasts which chop up wall and floor areas. If you can't re-do a room, you can use this trick when choosing new additions Lighting is a space-maker when it makes dark corners usable, turns the seldom-used chairs into comfortable reading spots, draws attention to tall draperies and ceiling.

John Daly's day

At the height of the after-theater rush in mid-Manhattan, a rangy 6-footer was futilely waving and whistling for a taxi. "I'm trying to catch the 11:25 to Rye," he explained as the traffic cop glanced over crossly. In the grossest violation of regulations, the cop promptly made a cab U-turn in the busy street. "Get along home, Mr. Daly," he said. "You're working too hard."

THE MAN NEXT DOOR

Our 10-year-old Judy decided not to pull her favorite April-fool trick on me this year. Last year she did it, but it almost fell flat. She put some salt, instead of sugar, into my coffee, and I absent-mindedly thought for a moment that her mom had overslept and I'd made it.
