Life Begins at Forty Ex-American Publisher Retires to Emerald Isle By ROBERT PETERSON , DUBLIN, Ireland — Among the j thousands of Americans who have retired to Ireland is Tom Farroll, fi". former publisher of a cosmetics trade journal in New York. Although hi s grandfather! was horn here, Farrell had never laid eyes on the Emerald Isle until 1957 when he and his wife — who have It grandchildren — came for a visit. They liked it so much that they came again in 1959, and again the following year when they rented a house for the summer. Convinced that their infatuation with Ireland was genuine, they retired last year and moved here bag and baggage to a roomy, six^room apartment on the second floor of a private house in a neighborhood of stately brick residences. Farrell has a touch of heart trouble and stays close to home, devoting nin^t nf his time to rending and visiting with friends who stop by. He takes a leisurely walk every afternoon with his doe and claims the charms of Ireland haven't begun to run thin. His wife is animated, outgoing, and active in church groups, civic affairs, and charitable functions. She claims these are her most exciting years. "There's something thrilling about settling in a different country ami putting down new roots. Sometimes we miss the U. S.,; but it's Just momentary." What's so special about tre- lad? "It's the people," she enthused. "I had no idea folks could be so warm and friendly. Although we're newcomers, they have taken us to their bosom and we already have as many friends as we had in the States. Folks drop in more often for visits, and we get together at teatime and after church and club affairs. "It costs less to live here — that's one of the reasons we came. You could never get an apartment like this in the States for what we pay. And my cleaning woman gets half what I used to pay and is glad for the job. "Groceries cost about the same, and you can't be quite so fussy about fruits and meats. But when you go out to dine at a fancy restaurant it cost s less than you would pay in the States.

You can see real plays for a dollar. When there are charity drives and functions they don't expect very much. And .hospital and doctor bills are a fraction what we were accustomed to paying. Any liabilities? "There's the weather," she sighed regretfully, "It's not as sxmny as we'd like — too much cloudy, squally weather. And, of course, we miss seeing our grandchildren. But we plan to stay — at least for two or three years. If you've got the capacity for happiness you can be happ*y anywhere — particularly in a country like this where the people go out of their way to be pleasant, and you can get extra mileage from your retirement dollars." Moving to a new land won't answer everyone's retirement dreams. But those with a hint of Irish ancestry who can adjust to new circumstances and seek adventure may find an extended sojourn in Ireland a great refresher in later vcars.

(AP) -A flashing light "firefly" satellite soared into orbit today to measure the size and shape of the earth in an experiment which could produce more accurate world maps and establish guide lines for tracking men to the moon. The 355-pound satellite, named Anna, rocketed away from Cape Canaveral at 3:08 a.m. atop a Thor-Able-Star booster. An hour later the Defense Department announced it was in a successful orbit about 700 miles above the earth. The first stage pushec' the package to the edge of space. The second fired for two minutes, then shut down and coasted for 25 minutes before restarting its engine to eject its satellite into orbit high above Ethiopia at a speed of ^nearly IS.OO'J miles an «i jr. Officials reported that clear signals were being received from the payload. Because the rocket was fired on a northeast heading in the direction of th e Soviet Union, the Defense Department announced time and direction of launching in advance. Sources said thte was •" me to alert the Soviet Union so that the Russians would not mistake the rocket for a hostile missile. Official name of the satellite is Anna IB, with the letters standing for Army, Navy, Air Force and NASA, the participating agencies. Th'e "Firefly" nickname derives from four high-intensity xenon gas lights designed to be photographed against a background of stars as they flashed on and off at designated times. The first launch in the program, Anna 1A, failed last May because of rocket trouble.

The Internal Revenue Service also reported that total collections in the state for the same period came to $2,313,439,000. Diverted Acres Open to Livestock Beginning November 1, most of the acreage diverted under the 1892 feed grain and wheat programs will be released from program restrictions on grazing, Gilbert W. Egbert, chairman, Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation state committee, has announced. The authorization does not extend to (1) diverted acfeage which is devoted to wildlife food plots and (2) diverted acreage on which oil-seed crops have matured in 1962. Egbert explained tliat We grazing restrictions are being relaxed as part of the general effort to keep provisions of farm programs in line with practical farming operations. Many farmers normally salvage dropped corn ears and other crap residue by turning livestock onto harvested cropland in the late fall. Since the diverted acreage on many Lnns is not fenced separately, the program change will permit these farmers to salvage this feed without being put to unreasonable work *«•* ftnrrien City Telegram Wednesdoy, Pet. 31. 1762 time and expense for protective fencing. According to Egbert, the main objective of the ban against livestock on diverted acres has been to prevent grazing that might partially offset tile corn, grairi sorghum and wheat adjustment under the diversion programs. With killing frosts likely by November 1 over the main grain- producing area, the objective of th e no-grazing ban would be satisfactorily met by that time. In addition, the important period for protection of the diverted acreages also will have passed in most areas, and there is small likelihood that conservation cover would be severely damaged by permitting livestock on this acreage on o*- after November 1.
