ACTION in EDUCATION starts with YOU!

EDITOR'S NOTE: The first faint signal of the Soviet Sputnik relayed to earth and transmitted to Americans by radio was a menacing "beep-beep-beep." Maybe it sounded more like a Russian nursery rhyme than an ominous challenge to our educational system, but to many thoughtful Americans that echoing, hypnotic "beep-beep-beep" rhymed with "sleep-sleep-sleep."

This kitchen welcomes you indoors or out

You can enjoy the conveniences of a modern, indoor-outdoor family kitchen even if you live in an old home. Remodeling is your answer. No, it may not be inexpensive. But better financing is now widely available, and if your home is in generally good condition and well located, the cost of remodeling compares favorably with buying or building a new home. Proof is this redo of the Herrick Allens of Tacoma, Washington.

Four children pressured this kitchen addition

Four active children, two parents, and a tiny house can be a strain on family harmony-- especially if there's practically no living or play space. Mr. and Mrs. O. B. Jones, Jr., Carmel, California, hit upon this solution: a kitchen-dining room addition. It automatically helped extend the living room space by 119 square feet, provided a kitchen eating area, and opened up the house plan with a more workable arrangement.

America's amazing high country

EACH man has his own symbol for a country he knows. What is a certain place? Perhaps, to you, it is the look of a tree hanging above a creek; to someone else, the sound of waves on a shore; to a third, scent from budding trees in spring. But whatever the symbol, to the person who owns it, this symbol makes real the land or the city or the remembered sea, far more than facts and populations, areas and produce.

Summit meeting of flower arrangers

A TIME to remember, Spring 1959 was eventful for the members of Ikebana International who met in Tokyo to study ikebana at its best. Translated, the group's impressive title means, very simply: flower arrangers from all over the world. It was my good fortune to be in Japan at the time and to visit many famous flower arrangement schools.

How to tell a story

No one is a born storyteller- it is an acquired talent; it must be learned-- and it can be. It has transformed dreary politicians into attractive candidates for office. It has made top comedians of school teachers and violinists. Best of all, it can make you a favorite guest, or a raconteur in your own living room.

DEATH rides with the SLEEPYHEAD

A 43-year-old Chicago steelworker recently signed out after the night shift and hurried home where his wife and teen-age daughter were all packed and ready to start on a vacation jaunt to Norfolk, Virginia. Pausing only for a quick shower, he grabbed a snack to eat en route, loaded his eager family beside him, and was on the road by 5 a.m. Thirteen hours and 422 miles later, on the Pennsylvania Turnpike, he was still grinding out distance with fierce determination when nature intervened.
