THEY'RE PLANNING Your Home in the Sun
ARCHITECTS at Princeton University have come up with a three-step system for designing your home of the future. They see such a house properly oriented to the sun, and plan it with the sun constantly in mind. • The first step is to position the house on the site. In the architectural lab, a basic model of the home is placed on a movable board. A powerful light bathes the board in "sunlight." The model then is moved to positions corresponding to the angles of the sun at the house site. Through such experiments the architects determine the best position of the house on the lot.

Teen-Agers Learn to Hunt SAFELY
By George Laycock IN AN EASTERN state last year a youthful hunter aimed carefully at what he thought was the head of a deer. He made his kill, but it was not a deer. It was another hunter. Such hunting accidents break into the news every fall as legions of hunters take to the fields. In the more crowded sections of the country the danger has become so great that even seasoned hunters often stay home on opening day. But now officials think they've found a way to cut down the number of hunting tragedies. Their answer lies in education. All across the country boys and girls are enrolling in hunter-safety courses. The training is producing results. Several states have cut down hunting accidents among young hunters.

The machine we call "Mr. Meticulous"
Bell Laboratories scientists, who invented the junction transistor, have now created an automatic device which performs the intricate operations required for the laboratory production of experimental model transistors. It takes a bar of germanium little thicker than a hair and tests its electrical characteristics. Then, in steps of 1/20,000 of an inch, it automatically moves a fine wire along the bar in search of an invisible layer of positive germanium to which the wire must be connected. This layer may be as thin as 1/10,000 of an inch!

HOW TO MAKE INCREDIBLE PICTURES
LAUGH-PROVOKING trick pictures are fun to make and more fun to show. Contrary to popular belief, such pictures can be produced by the amateur photographer, even though he has only limited equipment. Trick shots involve two steps: cutouts and pasteups. The equipment required for them, in addition to a camera and enlarger, is a sharp knife, a sheet of clear glass large enough to hold an 8 x 10 glossy print, and a piece of heavy cardboard of the same size.
