i: * . Life Begins of Forty Some People V/ant to Grow Older There are only a few really good geriatric stories. And I me as a fine story. But in the intervening years guess it's inevitable that the best I the stor*y with only slight varia ones will keep popping up at intervals attributed to different celebrities. When I became interested in the subject of aging 20 years ago \ clipped a newspaper story about the late FDR who was suffering a siege of grippe. After an examination his physician commented, "Well, I can't make you any younger." At this FDR was said to have quipped, "That's all right with me — just see to it that I continue getting older." It struck tions has been revived featuring a succession of seniors, including Herbert Hoover, Bernard Baruch, Ben Gurion, and Konrad Adenauer. Now that ex-President Harry S. Truman has reached the venerable age of 78, I note that one of my fellow columnists has resurrected the tale in his honor and this apocryphal bit of dialogue is now supposed to have transpired between the Man of Independence and his physician at the Medical Center in Kansas City, Mo. Young Hobby Club Dictionary, 2 Other Books Grand Prize By CAPPY DICK A big Thorndyke-Barnhart Advanced Junior Dictionary, plus two other books — "Everyday Problems in Science" and "In all Our States" — is the national prize in today's word-square puzzle contest. Tlie two latter books are large and beautifully illustrated with color pictures, but the dictionary is the biggest of the set. It conains 68,500 defin- . ed words. All three books, published by Scott, Foresman and Company are helpful in school work. Five sets of these books will be given away to the national winners to today's contest. To win one of the sets, a contestant must first win a local prize in the contest. This prize will be a packet of 100 postage stamps from different countries of the world. Ten p a c k e ts will be awarded in the Garden City area, one to each boy or girl whose contest entfy is judged to be one of the 10 correct ones that are the neatest and most original in appearance. Winning local entries will b: where this column is published A flrw report from the National Opinion Research Center in Chiago states, "Many medical practitioners, hospital administrators, isiting nurses, and family social vorkers would have us believe ihat most older people are very sick. "But the 16 million people 65 years of age and over in the U.S. — and those relatives and 'Fiends to whom they turn in a health crisis — give a different answer. "Most older people, as many as eight or nine of every ten, say, 'I've got a lot of things wrong with me but I'm not really very sick.' " So let's not grow pessimistic and start fearing that we're doomed to encounter disastrous illnesses in the years ahead. Chances are we'll be able to get around handily on our own steam, and with only minor aches and pains well into advanced years. arguments that are just plain stupid, ignorant, and dim-witted we are not afraid to say so." During my recent vacation I observed that nearly half the vacationing motorists traversing the ri-bbons of asphalt lacing the Rockies and national parks were either driving trailer-car i combinations known as "campers," with cooking and sleeping quarters behind the front seat, or regular autos with a trailer behind or camping gear lashed to the top. It's obvious traveling Americans have discovered that rhe best way to save money while sightseeing is to tote your own food and lodging. If you would like a booklet "Retiring to Mexico" write to this column in care of The Garden City Telegram, enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope and ten cents to cover handling costs.
