JUNE GARDEN REMINDERS

Lawns: It's still not too late to give the lawn a late spring feeding. Spread a balanced plant food over the entire area, working carefully to see that no spots are missed or get a double portion....

Preview of cars to come

A banner crop of new features is always the by-product of a highly competitive year in the automotive industry. Currently outstanding is the retractable hardtop, a complex amalgamation of the best features to be found in convertibles and sedans. In blueprint form, the design has long lain dormant on engineers' shelves.
