INFORMAL LIVING IN THE OPEN By Elizabeth Atwood THINK that every mother should, at someperiod of her childrens lives, give them thejoy of real camping. Not in a roughly-made house with all the accessories of civ-ilized living, but out in the open. Out ina tent with the beds made of pine boughs.Such a mother will renew her youth, make her childrenwildly happy, for they are little animals, really, and loveand enjoy the wilderness and freedom which can only befound under actual primitive conditions. I know of what Iam asserting, for I have done this more than once. First of all decide upon a location lending itself to allthe actual needs of a party spending a month in the open.Ive always selected a spot not more than half a mile froma farmhouse. This meant a base of supplies such as milk,butter, eggs, ice and vegetables. It also meant gettingour mail at least once a day; also, it put us in communica-tion with the stores of the village five miles away. Suchplaces may be found all through
