CHAOS in the SUBURBS

IN Miami, Florida, stands a grotesque symbol of the chaos engulfing our large cities. A six-lane expressway built to carry traffic from northern suburban towns through the city to the southern suburbs runs right into a 20-acre project of the Miami Housing Authority. The expressway is partially blocked and a section of the project has had to be abandoned.

Now, space unlimited in a new house!

Every once in a while, we discover a house that offers a startling amount of useful space-- far more than its size or cost suggests. Usually it has a simple plan and clean, uncluttered lines.

Washington's dizzy diplomatic whirl . . .

A successful diplomat should have the brain of a statesman, the feet of a New York cop, the charm of a movie siren, the tact of a bellboy, and the digestion of a billy goat. Between the serious side of diplomatic life and the social whirl of Washington, an ambassador is a combination fact-finder, public relations man, and trouble-shooter for his government. Sometimes a popular diplomat has to appear at a luncheon, three or more receptions, and full-course dinner in a single day.

"What a wonderful place to live!"

Living qualities of a home really stand up to be counted when shorter days and turning leaves announce the return of fall. Families used to move indoors for what amounted to hibernation. Nowadays, in such an accommodating house as this, it's a pleasure to look forward to company for football weekends, children and friends in from school, the family together for Thanksgiving, and all the happy holiday parties upcoming.

LET'S HAVE NO MORE NONSENSE ABOUT Weight!

WHAT really makes you fat or thin? For generations, we've believed that some of us just naturally garnered weight. Heredity, faulty glands, or "change of life" made some of us fat, while others stayed slim. Recent studies prove such factors are rarely, if ever, significant.
