We don't know everything about people, but we try...

One of our aims at Better Homes & Gardens is to be the magazine that knows the most about people and their homes. We have several ways of going about this-- and always are looking for others. We have regular get-togethers with people in what we call Housing Forums. These two-day sessions are co-sponsored with successful, forward-looking builders, and we have found them to be a valuable pulse-taking tool.

What it's like to move to ARIZONA

Somewhere in Ohio, or Vermont, or Minnesota, a man shovels snow off his driveway, drawing freezing air into his lungs. He wakes up in a hospital under treatment for a heart attack.

How to cope with the high cost of putting youngsters through college

For three of the ten years the Hafners will have children in college, two will be attending at the same time. They already have one girl about to start her second year. A boy will be ready to go in two years, another girl in four. To snare those three high-priced sheepskins, the Hafners have (1) an income of $120 a week from Fred's job as an insurance claimsman, (2) a twelve-year-old Cape Cod house with reasonable carrying charges of $85 a month and a half-paid mortgage, (3) lifetime savings of $4,500, including a few shares of stock, and (4) the carefully-conceived plan that will be outlined in this article.
