Advances in dentistry

Restoring individual teeth, rather than extracting them, is becoming routine. New materials and techniques make this possible even if decay or an accident requires grinding the original tooth down below the gum line-- if the root is sound.

When your child goes to the hospital

A heartsick mother and father who had just "abandoned" their six-year-old daughter to the Children's Medical Center in Boston were asked if they'd like to see how little girls spend their time at the hospital. When they answered that they would, a nurse took them to a window looking into a large sunlit room. There, a dozen small patients, some busy with toys, some sitting cozily around child-size tables, were completely engrossed in play, and right in the middle sat their daughter, quietly cuddling a doll as she giggled at the antics of a television cartoon.

Meet a house that's "true to life"

When the Phillip Egans first went to Architect Louis Huebner, they described a simple and graceful house-- one having elements of much-admired Japanese design, without the look of an Oriental curiosity. It had to meet a budget and fit their 75×150-foot lot in Glenview, Illinois.

Carl Sandburg

You remember back to many years ago when you talked in Dayton, Ohio, with Orville Wright, and how he told you, "The faster you go, the less power you need." You remember how he described that first precarious air adventure at Kitty Hawk. And now you're witness to man's latest daring and intelligence, an airplane that moves as fast as the arc of the sun and is itself longer than the distance of Orville Wright's first flight.

HOW THE GOOF-OFF GULPS YOUR BUILDING DOLLARS

WE AMERICANS pride ourselves on hard work, knowhow, and the ability to do a job and do it right. We don't appreciate people who shirk their duties-- whether it be in a professional office, at a white-collar desk, in a factory, or anywhere else. Nor do we put up with deliberate inefficiency, obstructionism, and plain stalling.

15 GREAT HYMNS

In 1824, when his Ninth symphony finally fulfilled Beethoven's dream of creating a work "celebrating joy, the conqueror of grief," the composer was too deaf to hear the tumultuous applause that greeted its premiere. But when he faced the audience, he saw a demonstration almost unequaled in the annals of music-- people standing, waving handkerchiefs, and weeping.

VEGETABLES

Nature is profile. Wish your help, a relatively small garden plot will produce tremendous quantities of vegetables. In fact, it is quite easy to plant too much of one vegetable. So before you plant the first seed, determine your family's requirements: how much will be used fresh, how much will be needed for canning or freezing, and how much is to be given away to friends.
