While recent concern about food costs has been largely triggered by spectacular price hikes of the past year, the fact is that our national grocery bill has been steadily rising for quite some time. It has almost doubled in the past ten years, from $80 billion in 1964 to the nearly $160 billion it's predicted we may spend in 1974.

WHEN THE BLUES REALLY GET YOU DOWN

If the Fifties were the age of anxiety, one psychiatrist has written, the Seventies are the age of melancholy. Depression-- serious, debilitating, deep-down bouts of gloom that drain the energy and paralyze the will-- has risen to the status of a national epidemic.

Little cars that act big

Automobile manufacturers in our country, as you may have noticed, are no longer producing small cars that are just low-priced, scaled-down copies of their full-sized sedans. Instead, today's small car, through design and use, is displacing the traditional family station wagon as all-around utility vehicle, at a savings in size and price.

HOW TO GLAMORIZE A BATHROOM

If you're planning a new bathroom-- or if you're about to rejuvenate an old one-- the design options open to you are virtually limitless. So, why settle for a conventional grouping of fixtures surrounded by dull shapes and drab surfaces? With careful planning, you can make your new-- or renewed-- bathroom as imaginative and as expressive as the rest of your house.

How to make the most of your eyes

Our eyes give meaning to the words we speak. At one time or another, each of us has searched someone's eyes for their silent message. More than a finely chiseled nose-- or a cupid's bow mouth-- expressive eyes get attention.

Skimp and splurge vacationing in HAWAII

The tropical enticements of the Hawaiian Islands are marvelously democratic in their availability to all. You don't have to arrive loaded down with tons of money to savor the ingredients of Everyman's dream of paradise: lovely beaches interspersed with dramatic rocky shores; lush forests against a backdrop of lofty volcanoes; countless hours of sunshine pleasantly softened by balmy breezes; luxuriant plants and exotic flowers; tumbling waterfalls and soaring mountains; rice paddies and ranches; and always the proximity of the purely blue Pacific and of the joyfully lyrical people of Hawaii, who generate an every-day-is-a-festival mood that turns noises into melodies, motion into dancing, and dragons into bright, cheerful kites.
