Not only is it important for your sense of independence and peace of mind but you may desperately need it to cover emergencies which may arise in coming years. Give the children your affection and moral support. And give them occasional monetary tokens. But don't im-1 poverisli yourself. They musl j learn to stand on their own feet, j Q, "I'm 42 and need a grandmother badly. My drinking husband and I are getting a divorce and 1 must w:rk to care for ,my three small children. Since my hours are sometimes late a I teenager is out of the question j and I can't afford a regular ' nurse or maid. There must be ! an older woman somewhere who' would like a home and small ] salary in return for watching my babes when I'.m working. Can you help?" A. Every community needs a registry designed to get older people who want homes together with young people who can use ' their services. Three things you can do are (1) put an ad in your local paper, (2) talk with local ministers about elder members of their flock who may be interested, and (3) notify golden age clubs 'that you'd like to adopt a 'grandmother. Q "I'm single, 52, and love the 4-room apartment I leased last year in a new building. But I just can't afford the $130 monthly rent, which is nearly half my pay as a sales clerk. Should I take in a roommate or keep my privacy by moving to a smaller place?" A. Unless you know someone who would be just right, I'd vote for the latter. As most people get along in years they value their privacy. Many single peo- ple have written me that they'd rather live alone in a furnished room than share a spacious apartment with a roommate, Q. "I recently asked a girl of Spanish descent what she wanted to do most upon graduating from high school. Her answer was, 'Go to work so I can give money to my parents.' This struck me as one of th e noblest remarks I've heard to date from the younger generation. Wouldn't it be fine if all children thought along these lines?" A. It's important that children feel an obligation to their parents and a desire to help support them. But young people must also be concerned with personal needs, and this means saving money to buy homes for themselves, educate their children, and accumulate funds for their own retirement. 0. "I've finally hit 65 and live in constant fear of getting some dread disease and becoming another one of the ailing oldsters we read about." A. Stop worrying. Most elders s;kiD through the later years without serious illness. In fact, Dr. E. V. Askey of the American Medical Association recently quoted a Chicago survey of people over 65 in which it was found that less than ten per cent had need of regular medical attention. If you would like a booklet "Basic Health Rules for Older People" write to this column in care of the Garden City Telegram enclosing a stamped, self- addressed envelope and ten cents to cover handling costs.

(AP)—American school children are under too much pressure to get high marks and are getting too little love, s ay a college professor. As a result, he says, half of them are potential neurotics, drug addicts, alcoholics and suicide cases. "We are teaching reading in the nursery school and algebra in the first grade," said Dr. James A. Smith. "What for?" Smith, a professor of education at Syracuse University, told a teachers conference. "We make children con form, until we kill their creativity. We know people cave in under pressure.

'Cameo' Word in By BOB THOMAS AP Movie-Television Wlter HOLLYWOOD (AP)—"What did we do before Mike Todd invented the term "cameo'?" said a film producer recently. "It's the magic word that can get a star to do a bit part." The dictionary defines cameo as "a gem carved in relief." That was the word that helped Todd, the great persuader, talk a platoon of top names into accepting tiny roles in his epic "Around the World in 80 Days." Producers today can thank the late showman for starling a trend that continues. In the old days, a star wouldn't think of accepting a role in which he had less than 80 per cent of the footage. Now you see stars taking roles their agents would have scoffed at years ago. Frank Sinatra, Burt Lancaster, Kirk Douglas, Tony Curtis , Shirley MacLaine and Robert Mitchum will be seen heavily disguised in tiny roles in "The List of Adrian Messenger." The all-star comedy "It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World" will feature in brief parts such names as Jack Benny, the Three Stooges, Buster Keaton, Don Knotts, Carl Reiner and Paul Ford. "The Longest Day" has an entire cast of cameo players. Stars like Anthony Quinn and Alec Guinness find themselves playing support to the actor in the title role of "Lawrence of Arabia," Peter O'Toole. Tony Curtis plays a 'bit in "Paris When it Sizzles" Is Magic Filmland as a Tony Curtis-like movie star. If you want to be technical, you could divide the non-starring roles of stars into three categories: 1. Walk-ons. These are brief scenes of perhaps no more than two or three times, in whi*h the star appears for shook-eomedy value. The Hope-Crosby "Road" pictures were full of these. Page 10 Garden City Tolngram Monday, October 29, 1962 2. Cameo*. The cameo player usually has a well-defined though brief role extending through an important sequence. 3. Supporting roles. These extend for a long sequence or even throughout the movie, but remain secondary to the starring roles.
