MAIN FRIDAY MORNING 9:00 A.M. the squire Garden City, Ks. Many American Retirees Are Attracted to Ireland By ROBERT PETERSON DUBLIN, IRELAND — The older I grow the more meaningful becomes the maxim, "It's Later Than You Think." So when a friend called ami asked if I'd like to fly along on a quick jaunt to Ireland I heard myself asking "When do we leave?" We hopped a jet in New York | and just 360 silky minutes later j the Emerald Isle hove into view and I felt no regrets whatever for the $305 round trip fare invested- in the excursion. Every plane and ship headed i this way carries retired Ameri! cans destined for a residency in ! Ireland—some for a few weeks or i months, others for a year or two, ! and many for the rest of their I lives. Some are rich, some are i poor. But most have a few thou' sand (dollars stashed away, plus a splendidly dependable U.S. Social Security check winging jt-s way to their post office box each month. At the airport there were cab drivers eager to carry suitcases and open doors — a courtesy I thought no longer existed. A room and bath awaited, at a leading hotel for less than $10 a day. Dinner under the crystal chandeliers of the grand dining room was a delicious, full course extravaganza which cost one pound or $2.80, including the tip. And the first day ended seeing a hit play at the famed Abbey Theatre from an orchestra seat which cost ten shillings, or $1.40. What attracts so many elder Americans to Ireland? Many are drawn by the legendary charm and wholesome delights of this tiny island which are only slightly exaggerated. But a more practical magnet is the hope of stretching dollars in this country where most things cost less. The first retiree I met was Frank Connery. He and his sister Nancy were born here but emigrated to the States in 1937. They became U.S. citizens and What they SAY oJbtttif J FLOYD BREEDING The Garden City Telegram i editorials Page * Garden €ity Telegram Friday, October 12, 1962 Our Nod fo Breeding 'THOSE OF US in this ridiculously large First District of Kansas •wfto gx) to the polls ne*t month •will have two distinct choices in the man we want to represent us in Congress for the next two years. One is the Republican candidate, Bob Dole,.an xiltra^conservative whose. greatest claim to fanie is Jiis dilifrent work in probing the Billy Sol'Bates scandal. The other is J. Floyd Breeding, the well-seasoned Democrat who can wear with pride his ability ,to be elected and twice re-elected from an area of Kansas not known for Democratic, sentiment. Our choice is Breeding 1 . This isn't a blanket endorsement of the present administration and its policies. We have opposed some of them which the Southwest Kansas Congressman has supported with his vote, , But taking all things into consideration, we be-' Heve Breeding has clone an acceptable job in representing his di?trict. Aiid we are convinced he will do a better job for the new First than his November opponent. We have lonjr argued for a farm program which would Tnit controls on' production as the only realistic approach to a problem which has been created by the type of thinking Dole has manifested so far. Breeding 1 has supported a bushelage program as backed by the majority of wheat growers in Kansas. His opponent could not have had the interests of his constituents uppermost when he sided with, the Kansas City Board of Trade in jts protest against moving Kansas wheat to the West Coast. The wheat growers in Kansas have worked hard, through their agencies, in getting Asian markets for hard, red winter wheat as grown in the Great Plains. And it wa<? onlv through freight reductions from this area to the West Coast that our wheat could be priced competitively with other markets. We must elect a Congressman who will Work for the man who raises the crops — not for one who will sell out to a higher bidder. J* FLOYD DEMOCRAT CONGRESSMAN . . FIRST DISTRICT — pol. adv. for a quarter of a century Frank clerked in a. copper firm and Nancy toiled as nurse. Then last year they retired and now plan to divide their time between the U.S. and Ireland. "Our money goes further here," said Connery. "Back in Brooklyn, N.Y., we paid $150 a month for the four room apartment we shared. But here we pay half that and the rooms are larger. Groceries and clothing are bit lower. And stage plays, sports events, and transportation are/ a lot less. "People are really friendly — even more so than in the States. They don't rush and hurry so much, and there's less crime and violence. "But th» weather's better in the States, and we miss the central heating and supermarkets. That's why we plan to divide our time — a year or two here, and then a year or two in the States. We love variety and with travel so cheap these days we think everyone who retires should enjoy the change and excitement of living in different places." Connery's right. More men and women who retire should spread their wings and fly off to enjoy brief residencies in far-flung places. If you budget your dollars wisely you can do It for little more than it costs to stay home, and in the proces you'll be treating yourself to the new experiences so essential to a stimulating retirement. ludte WALL PAINT the amazing new paint from Never before a paint (Ike it!
