Article

Don't be a neutral parent

The average high-school senior does a lot more and a lot deeper thinking than his temperamental ways and his fractured English would suggest. One problem is bound to be with him: "What kind of work should I go into?" Sooner or later, if his home is well regulated, he raises this matter at the family dinner table. And what happens?

How to keep fit in hot weather

Long, lazy weekends, gardening, country vacations, and sunny days that lure us outdoors help to make summer the healthiest time of year. But, the hot months bring some seasonal discomforts and ailments of their own. Don't let kill-joy hot-weather hazards sneak up like poison ivy at a picnic to spoil the family's fun.

Have you heard the Latest Garden News?

Room air conditioners

That's the big story behind these window and console models that "condition" a single room. But the whole traffic in refrigerated and revitalized air (including the big-brother central systems) is booming as never before. Why? The industry began its growth from the very moment it turned to home comfort. Manufacturers of room conditioners have tripled in number the past two years, and this is your best proof that "luxury" taboos-- especially in price-- are off for good.

How to beat the blues

Yesterday you felt wonderful. You had a sense of well-being; the sitting-on-top-of-the-world feeling that makes a man glad just to be alive. Today, for no apparent reason, you feel low. The world seems drab and cheerless. Nothing seems particularly worthwhile. And you're at a loss to account for this fact. You're happily married, financially solvent, and in good health. Everything is rosy-- except the way you feel.

A three-in-one vacation: Glacier, Banff, and Jasper

From the southern edge of Glacier National Park in Montana to Canada's alpine village of Jasper, 100,000 years of sculpturing has built a vacationland you can't afford to miss. In its cluster of six national parks, there are more than 150 peaks with crests above 10,000 feet, most of them snow-crowned all year. Glaciers, bulldozing many centuries before the dawn of history, carved these turrets and citadels from the backbone of the continent. Then Nature did a mammoth landscaping job by adding countless lakes, hundreds of waterfalls, and great patches of color that are alpine meadows ablaze with flowers.

An experiment with floor space

A somewhat immodest rule of house planning says that you should start with the thought of using every foot of floor space better than it has ever been used before. Every important house reflects this rule, reflects the experimentation it calls forth.

You can be a timesaving expert, too!

The home sends the family into business, industry, volunteer jobs, and schools rested and able to do a day's work, or tired and discouraged. If housekeeping is efficient and family relations are good, the home, industry, and school all profit.

More mileage from your tires

"Why do I get only 20,000 miles out of a set of tires when some of my neighbors get better than 50,000?" How many times have you heard this complaint? Perhaps you've said it yourself. Actually, you, and not the tires, can be at fault.

The diary of a Plain dirt gardener

June 1 This has been "Howdy Day." As I went out to work, the main first job was to say "howdy" to my old friends that are back. They were all through the rose beds-- back again and coming out in bloom-- World's Fair, Golden Dawn, Crimson Glory, Fred Edmunds, Helen Traubel, Peace, and Fashion.

THE MAN NEXT DOOR

Although Ned Preston grows more roses and finer ones than anyone else in town, he never seems to have any to enter in the annual rose show. But this year, they're secretly planning to give him a prize, anyhow. The inscription will read: "Special award for the best arranging-- always arranging to show up at neighbors' front doors, when they are ill, with roses that most folks would keep for themselves."
