SCANDINAVIA

SMALL HOMES in Stockholm, Helsinki, Copenhagen, and Oslo are much like ours. People do their own housework, are just as home-loving as we are. Probably that's why Scandinavian-style furniture has become so popular in the U.S.A. during the last 10 years.

You'll want to use this all-purpose meringue mix for easy meringue kisses, tortes, baked Alaska, too.

Recently, a number of orthopedic surgeons have noticed many cases in which toddlers' legs from hips to feet were turned either inward or outward in a marked degree, rather than being held in the normal midline position. The orthopedists noted, also, that there seemed to be a definite relationship between these distortions and the manner in which the children had been accustomed to sleep since early infancy.

Our young friends, the O'Reillys, longed for the country life. "City living's too hectic," protested Judy. They were going to find a "country" house, just right for commuting.
