m GOLDEN WARS AGE 65 OPENS NEW PATTERN ON HOW YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE u really don't have to go to bed at night after you retire. You don't have to do a lot of other things either. And you may have a gayer retirement if you don't. The pattern of the daily life you have been living was not set by you or by any divine formula, but by conditions imposed largely by the working world. NeaHy everybody was up and about in the daylight hours, and that's when they wanted their gdods and services. Which is why your company operates in the daytime. The fact that school children (which you don't have anymore) went to classes in the daytime contributed to setting the pattern. So did the lack of electric lighting, because until fairly recent times kerosene lamps gave people little to do at night except shuffle oif to bed. 'A growing number of men and women are making a gradual change in their sleep habits when they get their pensions, with some men who live in areas of extensive television coverage staying Up until 1:30 A.M. or so to watch movies, arising about 7; A.M., and then taking a two- hour nap in the afternoon. Along with your sleep, you might also question your eating habits. They too were set largely . by the work world, with break- .fast to fortify you to start the day, a noon lunch to break the work day (since few people chop wood for a living now to build .up a noon appetite), and an eve ping feast to break the day off from the night. : You don't need this particular pattern when you retire. Nor does your body usually require as much food. You might consider two meals a day instead of three, the first at 9:30 A.M. or so, the other between 5 and 6 P.M. . . . with trips to the icebox, of course, during the TV commercials at night. The box you live in, called a house, can't be blamed on the working world, though it was a suitable and economical means of giving shelter to a family (yours, by retirement, has abandoned the nest). Surely there is something more suitable for a retired couple to live in than a compartmented box with square walls. Just what doesn't come readily to mind. You don't have to mow the grass or fix the carpet sweeper on Saturdays, or play polf and fish on Sundays — you can go to church now. Because along with your job you have lost the five- day week. On your social entertaining you don't have to wait for Saturday nights anymore. Monday night is fine, provided your guests aren't still on the job. On your trips into town you don't have to go and come during the rush hours, and stand up on the bus. Or try to get a clerk's attention during the lunch hour when all the stenographers are buying. The things you don't have to do in retirement that you have had to do all your working years are many and varied. Why don't you turn off the TV for a little while and add them up?

JVUrry-Go-Round tflllUIIIIIIIIIIHIIIIIIillllHIIIIIIIIII By Drew Pearson (Editor's Note: Drew Pearson is in the Holy Land. During his absence the column is written by his associate, Jack Anderson.) WASHINGTON - Despite all peace in y^et, Nam,,.President Johnson remains pessimistic. He is exploring any and all reasonable approaches, but he feels the hard-core communists controlling North Viet Nam, including the Red Chinese, are still more interested in making propaganda than peace. And he feels the . odds are heavy that it will take a long time to change their thinking. Our military planners share 'this view, and they have many hard facts to back them up. ';'', • - 0 •• North Vietnamese regulars are still pouring into South Viet Nam at the rate of 2,500 a month. -Some 30 North Vietnamese army battalions have been identified In South Viet Nam, with even more reserves believed assembling under the jungle cover along the borders of Cambodia and 'Laos. Intelligence reports say the Ho Chi Minn network is 'clogged with traffic at night, bringing both men and supplies southward. New routes are under 'construction. The communists are continuing their barbaric treatment of U, S, and South Vietnamese prisoners and their terrorist attacks on villagers. 'this in turn means that our own involvement will spread, American forces will be greatly increased, the bombing of North Viet Nam will be intensified, draft calls will be larger, and many men now deferred will be called to active duty - possibly including even students who are at the bottom of their class in school. AU< this means that the year ahead will be extremely difficult, not. only for the President but for Congress and the nation, It .Will be reflected in the budget estimates the President will send to Congress later this month, calling for heavier military expenditures and suspension or reduction of many cherished domestic programs. «• o This in turn vmi DC reacted In the debates in Congress, This is an election year, and Republicans unquestionably will be castigating the administration more than usual, with more ammunition at their disposal, There will be other bitter criticism from those who feel that cutbacks in the war on poverty cannot be tolerated, especially as they bear on civil rights progress, On top of all this, we are facing the danger of inflation, of higher prices, of economic dislocations, that will sharpen the irritations we already feel over our seeming ^inability,Jo get N anywhere_ in Viet^ "Nam. v "'"' '•'•''" '"" "-'""It is not a pleasant outlook, for the President or anyone else. - o - — PIRATE TELEVISION- In Europe they don't have the television networks we do, although commercial operations have been permitted in recent years to some extent. As a result, European television has something we haven't"pirate" ships which anchor off the coast and send their own television programs to viewers on land in England, Holland, Sweden and other countries. Now merchant sea captains are complaining that the pirate television programs are interfering with ship communications. They want something done to outlaw them. I - o - —CHINA'S ATOMIC SPEEDUP- Secretary of Defense McNamara a few weeks ago warned publicly that Rod China is making progress not only with atomic weapons but with the means to deliver them. He said the Chinese might perfect their intermediate- range missiles within the next two or three years. Some Pentagon experts believe the Red Chinese are doing even better, that they will have intercontinental rockets within the same period, which would mean they could use them against the continental United States. Now there are reports that they are on the verge of another scientific breakthrough - the ability to explode an H-bomb. If true, it may be due to the efforts of an American woman scientist who went behind the bamboo curtain more than a decade ago. - Joan Chase Hinton, daughter of Mrs, Carmelita Hinton who once ran a school at Putney, Vt, Joan graduated in physics and worked during World War H at the Los Alamos atomic laboratory, She married an American, Erwig Sidney Engst, and went with him to attend a Peking peace conference, There she expressed her shame at having worked on the U, S, project, but reportedly swallowed her shame when the Red Chinese asked her to help on their A-bomb, Joan and Erwig later leaked out word that they had gone to Inner Mongolia to breed sheep. Intelligence agents soon dis- covered a small atomic laboratory was located near the'' sheep camp," and concluded that Joan was really breeding atoms for the Chinese. Out of the "sheep camp," at Plaetown, Inner Mongolia, has now risen a modern Plutonium plant. So, thanks to this mysterious U. S. woman, Red China may blast its way into the H-bomb age ahead of the expected timetable. - o - -HUMPHREY'S PRESS AGENT- Vice President Humphrey dropped his paid press agent, Robert Jensen, after a strong hint from President Johnson. LBJ remarked that he never had needed a press agent while he was Vice President. Humphrey's friends are worried, however, about his slipping publicity and popularity. So his personal attorney, Max Kampelman, now will serve as his unofficial and unpaid press agent. - o - —McNAMARA'S SQUEEZE PLAY-For months Secretary of Defense McNamara has been trying to get money to convert the controversial TFX supersonic fighter into a B-lll bomber to replace the obsolescent B-52. He secretly sounded out key members of the House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, who turned him down flatly. They agreed it would save money to convert the TFX into a bomber, they weren't at all sure it would make the best weapon for the country. Finally, McNamara tried a new tack and issued a public announcement that he was junking the B-52 fleet. This produced an immediate outcry, which McNamara soothed by offering to replace the B-52's with the converted TFX. Air Force generals oppose the idea, argue that the B-lll lacks the size, range, and capacity to carry out the nation's bombing assignments. They warn that a B-lll fleet would have to rely on tankers to reach many targets. This contrasts with the B-52's ability to go 10,000 miles without refueling. Congressmen already are complaining that if McNamara starts junking the B-52's and they don't let him replace them with the converted TFX, then Congress' will" get ; the"blame.'for the cut in our bomber strength^ So, once more it looks as if a McNamara squeeze play will work. - o - - ADVISERS MISLEAD- The President's chief weakness as chief executive is that he has had little experience In foreign affairs: When he was in Congress, he was a member of the House Naval Affairs Committee, then the Senate Armed Services Committee, and chairman of the Senate Preparedness Committee. All his contacts were with military men, so it's only natural he should rely on them. He did take a few quick junkets around the world as Vice President, but just enough to give him a veneer of foreign affairs knowledge, and such a veneer can be a very dangerous thing. Other military advisers have differed drastically with the group now advising the President, In 1954 when Eisenhower was urged by Vice President Nixon to get involved in this same area of Indo-China, Ike's military advisers said no. Gen. Matt Ridgway, tnen Army cmei of Staff, was so vigorous he almost threatened to resign. Gen. Nate Twining, Chief of the Air Force, was almost equally opposed, Admiral Arthur Radford, Chief of Naval Operations, advocated airplane strikes from carriers stationed offshore, but was very much against any land operation. Eisenhower took their advice. He would have had a rebellious Joint Chiefs of Staff it he had done otherwise. But the present Joint Chiefs of Staff have urged Johnson to do just the opposite. Perhaps this is because they have not been through the terrible ordeal of fighting massed oriental troops in the Korean War, where Gen. Ridgway took over from MacArthur as top commander or, as commander. Or, as some State Department advisers, attending Army War College briefings, have said privately: "The Army is out to get revenge for Korea and wants war in Viet Nam at any price," At any rate, Johnson's military advisers have given him the wrong advice time after time, In any successful 'business firm, those who give the wrong advice are demoted, Perhaps it is time for LBJ to get a new set of advisers.
