r Life Begins at Forty Rather Bake Than Retire By ROBERT P ON It's gralifyin^ to encounter healthy, ambitious elders who spurn inactivity and cling to the delights of remunerative work. When 1 was in Wyoming a few weeks ago 1 found r s-"' smitten with the breads and biscuits served at a dude ranch. They were Hyhl in texture, but had a substance and succulcnc • suggesting solid nourishment — which is more than can be said for most commercial breads these days. When I asked the waitress who had created these culinary Masterpieces she replied, "Our baker — who's 79 years old.' I trolled out t;> the kitchen and was soon talking to Jeff Butler, a slim, wiry old-timer in white shirt and trousers who was busily kneading u mass of dough. 1 asked how come he was still working. "Cause I like irking," lie replied briskly. "I'm out here ! summers, and winters I'm the baker at a boys' s.hool in v^olo- rnc'o. I can still make good money and my skill is in 'emand. So why should I sit around won- dering'what to do with my time?" Why indeed. * * * IT'S SMART TO BORROW cash for house repairs I* "Do-it-yourself" or pay cash and make big savings on the cost.

H r said his mother discovered the wide open spaces when she was approaching 40 and nearly every year thereafter spent her summer vacations at Western ranches. She loved riding and would sometimes get two or three women friends to join her on horse- hack and ride 18 miles fro.,1 j her favorite ranch into the town of Sheridan, Wyo., where they'd have dinner, spend the night, and ride back the next day. She often attributed her healthy longevity to the physical and spiritual refreshment of ranch vacations. Although I occupied Mrs. Rinehart's former collage at the ranch, it didn't impress my literary muse. 1 hoped a n ;.ntle of creativity might descent at nightfall and inspire some, vivid, exciting prose. But the day's exercise and fresh air had me falling asleep an hour after supper. * * * Among several souvenirs which I purchased at a rustic trading post in Cody, Wyoming, was a handsome, beaded Indian belt. When I got home I 'g^-ve the belt to my son and told him it was an authentic example of craftsmanship by American Indians in the wild and wooly West. He examined it carefully and asked, "Then how come it was made in Hong Kong?" Sur e enough. Some fine print under the buckle indicated that | the belt had been manufactured ' in the Far East — far from the Indians who had conceived the original design. It got me to wondering what has happened to labor costs and to our initiative and our pride in heritage. It would seem someone should be smart enough to Page 16 (•onion f'lty Tol«grnnt Wednesday, Oct. 17, 1962^ • work out. a manufacturing system which could compete cost- wise with the Orientals and would i permit some of our impoverished Indians or our unemployed blind, handicapped and t. ly to put their fingers to work and endow our Western souvenirs with the i authenticity of American manufacture. i If you would like a booklet !

Through binoculars the painted birds can be studied as to migratory habits, survival and other phases of their life. White (AP Photo) can is stationed at Emporia. PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP)-Birds of a feather aren't necessarily flocking together this fall in eastern Kansas. Among conventional hued birds are some white, others pink and even others green and orange-yellow. They have been painted. The painting is a new phase of a study of freed quail in the wild. Through binoculars the painted birds can be studied as to migratory habits, survival and other phases of their life. The study, begun this fall, augments research with banded birds that are trapped, or shot, for checking. In the initial stage Con White, quail project study leader with the State Fish and Game Commission has sprayed some birds with paint. About one-fourth of recently released quail from the state quail hatchery near Pittsburg were painted. White says this is the start of what he hoped will develop into 'a six-year conclusive study. The painting followed a check to determine what type of paint would last, would not injure the birds and would be best suited for the visual part of the project. The color problem is not fully understood, so several colors were used. It was found that the odd hues on the birds did not make them anti-social. / Quail identify quail by their heads. Therefore care was taken not to get any paint on their heads. Cocks and hens identify the different sex by the heads. In the first stage whe the birds were touched up,' the result was the craziest mixed up bunch of birds imaginable. Khrushchev, New U.S. Envoy Confer MOSCOW (AP)—U.S. Ambassador Foy D.
