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.
Scale-Model Farm (Apr, 1948)
I really like the glossy saturated color printing they used in the mid-40’s.
LEOPOLD ARMBRUSTER, recovering from a leg ailment, found he was a top-flight miniaturist.
He laid a board on his lap (for a bench) and started whittling out a farm building. His fingers flew. His farm grew. In six months it was a vast table-top establishment complete with eight buildings, cows, horses, sheep, hogs, rabbits, chickens, pigeons, people and wagons—all boiled down to a scale of 1/4 in. to 1 ft.—a masterpiece of fine detail.
His buildings come apart and are fully equipped with rooms, furniture, stalls, chutes, etc. Animals and men are molded of clay.
He Found Comfort in Copper (Mar, 1950)
I have about a half dozen issues of this magazine and most of the articles are like this. I’m pretty sure around 1958 they changed the title to “Profiles in Sadness”.

JOHN S. KREUTZER of Brooklyn, New York, has found an exciting and creative hobby to fill the lonely hours of his now solitary life.
The 70-year-old naturalized American, who came to the United States in 1905 from a part of Hungary, which is now Czechoslovakia, has worked as a tool and die maker for the greater part of his life.
