The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York even added a selection of his photographs to its library. Leslie's prescription for retirement that brings, not oblivion, but a new, successful, career is: "Find out how to be wanted ... get into something." Obviously "wanted" can be defined in various ways. One . doesn't have to be a professional. Most amateurs, whether photographers or anything else, find sufficient satisfaction in the acclaim of family and friends. To gain a public reputation is a nice bonus, but by no means indispensable. Retirement is a state of mind.

ALL MAKES-USED PORTABLES. 19.95 to 34.95 By ROGERS FRANKLIN Retirement Counselor If the average retiree had to choose a word which described his new status after retiring, it might well be "oblivion" from the Latin root meaning "forgetfulness." Yet no one likes to think of himself as a forgotten man in the sense that the word portends. Trouble is too many people, who should know better, often think of themselves in this way. For them, retirement from the job implies virtual retirement from life. All kinds of barren images arise in their minds a stream running dry, leaves falling from the trees, and so on. This type of thinking should be short-circuited before it does permanent damage . . . advice that's commonplace among experts who deal with retirement problems. But not so long ago, even the biggest men dreaded their coming leisure time as if it were an approaching plague. F. P. Leslie of Wayzata, Minnesota, reminds me of the case of James Forrestal, our first Secretary of Defense. The day after Bernard Ba-ruch retired, Forrestal sent the elder statesman a telegram reading: "What's oblivion like?" Mr. Leslie says in his letter: "Forrestal was my friend and my boss. As he shoved the copy of the telegram across my desk, there was more than a good-natured grin on his face. There was anxiety. He sat behind a huge desk, with the American flag and his Secretary's flag on standards behind him. He was an important man soon to face oblivion himself." I don't know what kind of reply Forrestal received. It should have been consoling since Baruch never became acquainted with oblivion, or anything close to it. He remained an adviser to Presidents until the day he died, full of years and honors. He couldn't have thought himself a forgotten man. Whatever the answer to the telegram, Forrestal evidently couldn't take any consolation from it. The termination of his connection with the U.S. government may have had a direct bearing on the tragic manner in which he took his own life. There's no point in harping on a tragedy that moved us all. Many other factors seem to have been involved overwork, poor health, and so on. It's better to stress that his assistant found a marvelous "use" for retirement. Mr. Leslie took up photography. Accompanying his son across Europe, he snapped pictures wherever they went. Gradually his technique Improved from poor to good to excellent. He made himself so proficient that after a time NEW 1968 SMITH-CORONA FIGUREMATIC ELECTRIC ADDER Penncrest washer and dryer makes short work of your wash days!
