A-6-- INDEPENDENT C.II/., M.,,F.». 1M1 iGOLPEN YEARS I Here's Way ·1to Reunite · · the Family p By THOMAS COLLINS ' You are living, in retirement now. Your housing, along with your income, is smaller than it used to be. Your children are married and, as is the custom -of the day, are somewhere'far away. " You worry that you don't see them more often. You worry, too, about what may eventually happen to this clan you have created. Your children's spouses hardly- know one another. How could they when one lives in New York and another in Texas? And all those little .first | cousins--your grandchildren-have little chance ever to know one another well enough even to figjjt. In this age of'scattered families you, as the parents, are the only rallying point. -You must fihd some way to keep the children in touch, with one another and you, or else they will start a-drirt that in two or-thrce generations will make most of your descendants strangers to one 1 another. Your own grandparents didn't · have this problem. There was ;the old family homestead to pull '.everybody back home.'And anyway," the children settled oh 40 acres down by the creek in- Istead of scampering away. ' · And grandparents didn't phll 'UP' and retire to the sunshine, . * * « » - ; A RETIRED lawyer, George 'K. Bannister, has been worry- 'jhg' about' all this. He has de- Voided to spend 81,000 to do · something about i t . . . and have , some fun in ^the deal. · ' You may be able 'to do the ; same for le^s. ' : -Bannister and his wife have .; retired to a two-bedroom bun- "galbw in California. Their three, Tcfcildren are married. Qne lives 'two days away by auto, one I four days, and one five. They 'are going to invite the children .! to come to California next Au- · gust and spend five days with Itliem at Papa's expense. -."·The total days the children I spend on the road will be 22. At -$25 a day'the Bannisters write, '.off $550. That will be simple. ;But the three children- are ~ bringing seven grandchildren. -f * * # ··THE BA2OTISTEKS will clear out one bedroom, placing the furniture in the garage. They will rent seven cots. Four|| go in the .bedroom (they've! measured it), three in the liv-' ing room, and one in the kitchen. The grandchildren stay with the Bannisters. The three sets of parents go to a nearby motel where the Bannisters can get a rate of $S per day per couple. It will give the cbuples freedom, free evenings in California, and a chance 1 to get acquainted with one another without distractions. "The feeding is where we've got troubles," Bannister says, "but I think we have it licked. We'll run the children through! the bathroom in the morning on an assembly-line basis, and as each child emerges he'll pick ' up cereal, fruit; toast and .milk and head for the back yard -to eat. "On lunch and .dinner we'll have the parents with us, and we're going to serve all these · meals outdoors, either in the yard or as a picnic in a nearby park. 'We can gamble on the weather being dry in July and August ..." * « » * BETWEEN MEALS the- children -will have swimming, the park, horses and sight-seeing.. The youngest child is 5, and the Bannisters think they'll largely amuse themselves. B e t w e e n supper and bedtime there will be an extra TV set (rented) to. keep the children quiet while the adults talk. ."All this is not going to cost Quite $1,000," Bannister thinks, "so we can probably have two or three meals at restaurants. We won't go in for outside entertainment, except to let the young parents out a night or so: I want this to be a close- knit family meeting." Bannister is -getting the 51,000- from dividends on life insurance he never cashed. · YOURICHILD^ f trmMiMI*UUU^I^lliUld- A Buntlnt rectal itch r* oftaa tell*V tkl* ilKi of Pin-Woruas . ..
