Good sense for SWIMMERS

Anesthetic drowning. Swimmers who learn how to hold their breath under water for a considerable time may unwittingly be inviting death by drowning. Two drownings from a little-known type of accident have been reported by Dr. J. H. Davis, of Miami, Florida. Both involved expert swimmers in calm and shallow water. The victims were trying to prolong the time of underwater swimming. When you hold your breath, carbon dioxide accumulates in the lungs and makes you gasp for air.

JULY GARDENING WHERE YOU LIVE!

THE well-tended garden has about it a touch of paradise-- roses and spring flowers are still putting out sporadic blooms; summer annuals and perennials are reaching their height of display. It is imperative that we give the garden the same good care and enthusiasm that we gave it last spring. The rewards will be a colorful summer garden and a vigorous and beautiful one this fall.

Doesn't everybody love a MOTHER-IN-LAW?

Let's face it. The reason for the happy relationship I have with my husband's mother is probably partly sheer luck. But I also think a lot of it can be traced to our attitudes from the start. Thank goodness, I've never had the typical comic strip idea of a mother-in-law as someone to fear and dread. And Bill's mother certainly showed no symptoms of being one of those Moms who regards every female as a rival for the affections of her precious son as some of my friends report of their mothers-in-law.

Roll out the RED CARPET

Just what is the red carpet? For one thing, it's a lot of small details-- some as inconspicuous as a firm handshake at the door, the cigarette box filled and invitingly open, the lacetrimmed guest towels crisply straight in the bathroom; others as eye-catching as a bright display of flowers, a centerpiece created with skill and thoughtfulness for this special occasion. Every family creates its own aura of hospitality, its individual version of the red carpet.
