Better Homes & Gardens introduces FIVE smart gardeners!
Month by month, gardening differs in every region. Sometimes just a little, but mostly quite a lot. Because we want you to have the best information for your region, we've asked five experts from as many areas to bring it to you each month. Most of them might be called professional amateurs. They garden because they love it, and because they love it so much, they make it their profession. Introducing . . .Read Article
SEPTEMBER GARDENING WHERE YOU LIVE!
THE countryside will soon be ablaze with color. Why not use nature's own paint pot to enliven your garden? I've always preferred a Fall Planting schedule for most trees and shrubs (your nurseryman will warn you of exceptions), because that's the time of the year I can best judge the effect of new plantings. Get conifers in right now-- wait until the end of the month for winter-bare trees. Select some of the trees with their fall color in mind.Read Article

THE STRANGE THINGS PEOPLE EAT TO STAY YOUNG!
Ponce de Leon didn't find the elixir of youth because he didn't know where to look. But who would have thought the secret of everlasting youth might turn out to be one part steers' blood? At least, that is the testimony of that fountain of youth himself, Sugar Ray Robinson. And if we add Archie Moore's "youth juice" and British marathon walker Dr. Barbara Moore's chickweed juice, we might just have the complete formula for youthful good health.Read Article

Walter Cronkite: On and off the air . . .
WALTER CRONKITE' S activities and interests are designed (1) to accommodate his demanding schedule and (2) to allow five people, ranging in age from 3 to 43, to do them together.

Grow grass that can take it!
First of all, imagine the problem. A football field is the average home lawn multiplied in size eight times. It is 57,600 square feet of grass that is mauled, ripped, pounded, torn, and slashed into chunks of mutilated turf. It is on the receiving end of all the punishment that 22 cleat-footed, husky men can give it during 60 minutes of playing time--week after week after week.Read Article

A long-term study of the "surprise" drug is reported in Annals of Internal Medicine by Dr. J. Paul Young of Asheville, North Carolina.
