Read any good books lately?

The great ease with which books are turned out these days, for all that might be said for it, imposes on the casual reader an almost insurmountable task of selection. Not so long ago, a man had time to read most of those volumes that pleased him, or at least the ones his salary could afford. Today, with a busier society and a more exhaustive and inexpensive choice, he has trouble keeping up with the reviews, let alone the books to which they lead.

Drivers' eye tests: a nation-wide farce

A New York automobile publication recently pulled a stunt with shocking implications.

Remember Memorial Day?

The way we celebrated it, there was little gloomy about Memorial Day; everything we did was gay and life-giving. Early in the morning my sisters and I would be out cutting flowers, wrapping the stems in damp cloth. It was important that we take our own flowers to our own people. My older brother would come out with his pocket knife, the big blade honed to an edge so sharp he would take a hair from my head and hold it up, and as he slashed at it like a scalping Indian he would shout proudly, "Couldn't feel it, could you?"

Got weeds in gravel? Chemicals do the job!

You don't have to put up with a ragged ribbon of weeds down the middle of your gravel drive. In fact, it's a lot easier to get weeds out of gravel than it is to get them out of grass. That's because you can use chemical controls that are much stronger than would be safe to use on a lawn.

A house to end your search

Nowadays, as families, jobs, and ideas change, a young couple may migrate through more houses in 10 years than their parents saw in a lifetime. That's pretty much the history of Jack and Dorothy Tolzien. The handsome house you see here is the fourth they've lived in since 1949.

Antiques... at home with modern

When Mary and Jack Baumgardner moved into their new Northbrook, Illinois, home, their biggest problem wasn't affording new furniture. It was what kind of furniture to get. For Mary, there was nothing like the sleek, smooth lines of Contemporary. To Jack's mind, though, when you talked about furniture, you were talking about antiques.
