NO USE CRYING OVER SPILLED MILK (Feb, 1909)

I like that dropping in an elevator is presented along with someone falling from a street car. I’m pretty sure that the danger of elevators is one of the reasons you’re always supposed to let women and children off first. This seems to be one of those problems that has been completely licked because when was the last time you heard of an elevator accident?

NO USE CRYING OVER SPILLED MILK

Accidents will happen. Crying won’t help pick up the milk or mend the broken jug; but a little forethought will insure you money to buy more.

Suppose you should drop with an elevator tomorrow, or fall from a street car, and be picked up with a broken leg? Where would you get the money for the doctor and the landlord and the grocer? Not out of your pay envelope, for you wouldn’t be earning any pay for a while.

Canned Airplane (Sep, 1947)

Canned Airplane

THE Navy has begun “canning” more than 2,000 surplus carrier and trainer aircraft, to preserve them in near fly-away condition for periods up to five years.

The “canning” process seals the complete planes, with wings folded, in metal containers constructed from 10-foot panels of corrugated steel.

In each “can” relative humidity is kept at 30 percent. Vapor-tight access doors afford entry for inspection, and glass windows allow easy reading of five instruments that indicate temperature and relative humidity.

MUIR GLACIER VISIBLE AFTER NINE YEARS

SOMETHING wonderful has recently taken place in Alaska. This is the drifting away of icebergs from the front of Muir Glacier in Glacier Bay so that for the first time in nine years this famous glacier, the father of all glaciers, and the most noted on this continent has been visited.

Her Cookie Time Is Christmas Time (Dec, 1950)

Her Cookie Time Is Christmas Time

When her fellow townsmen found out about a Milwaukee woman’s Christmas cookies, they swamped her with orders, with no consideration for price.

Mrs. Earl Jacobson of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, has proved that Christmas cookie baking is not only easy and lots of fun, but profitable too. To those of us who may spend an entire day struggling with one fancy cookie recipe, Mrs. Jacobson’s record of 325 dozen cookies in three days seems unbelievable.

“Should auld acquaintance be forgot”

Somewhere today there is someone who would like to hear the sound of your voice.

A friendly visit by telephone is the next best thing to being there in person.

A GIFT FOR GIFT WRAPPING (Dec, 1950)

I still say this magazine should be called either “Profiles in Sadness” or “Profitable Hobbies for Widows and Widowers”.

A GIFT FOR GIFT WRAPPING

Imagination, not expensive materials, produces the most attractive gift packages, says a California woman noted for her original wrappings and lectures on the subject.

THE SUCCESS of Mrs. William J. Roth’s hobby of gift wrapping sometimes causes her to live her seasons in advance.

Why Homosexuals Resist Cure (Feb, 1964)

This article is interesting in what the author doesn’t say. He doesn’t say that homosexuality can or cannot be “cured”. He also doesn’t say it should be cured if it can be. He says it is “advisable” but there are a lot of ways to take that. And in the last paragraph he recommends liberalized sex laws.

In all it seems like a sort of big hypothetical to ease people into being slightly more understanding and compassionate towards gays.

Here is a scan of the article referenced at the end: “A Radically New Sex Law”.

Why Homosexuals Resist Cure

Some of the reasons that make it difficult to change homosexuals by psychotherapy.

by Donald Webster Cory and John P. LeRoy.

Mr. Cory is the well-known author of “The Homosexual in America” and editor of “Homosexuality: A Cross-Cultural Approach.”

Mr. LeRoy is a free-lance writer.

Amid a tangle of contradictory reports, there is a growing belief that homosexuality can be “cured” and that the homosexual can be changed — if he wants to be.

“Mine says made in Japan” (Jan, 1969)

I didn’t realize the fear of Japanese manufacturing went back to the sixties. I wonder what flavor it was. “All this cheap crap is made in Japan” or “Oh my god Japan is 20 years ahead of us, pretty soon they’ll own all of America and we’ll all be living in a William Gibson novel.”

“Mine says made in Japan”
