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.
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

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.”
