IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN THURSDAY, MAY 20,1965. The Doctor Says By W. G. BRANDSTADT, M. D. A few decades ago men worked 60 or more hours a week and still managed to squeeze a little fun out of life. Now, for most workers, a week's work is 40 hours or less. As automation is applied to more and more tasks, a further shrinking of the work week is inevitable. I am still a little apprehensive that for many persons this trend is fostering an altered attitu d e toward work. Truly fortunate is the man who has found a worth- while job to do and who enjoys doing it. If you don't enjoy your work, you are in the wrong line. It is all right to grumble a little now and then, but, if you really want to quit working, you're sick. When I see some of our teenagers wearing large cellulo 1 d buttons with the slogan "I HATE WORK" I cringe. I can only hope that they think this is a huge joke and that they do not take this motto seriously. In I the words of Thomas Carlyle, "Blessed it h« who hai found his work; let him.ask no other blessedness." What have our extra lets are hours provided thus far? The answer varies, but In many cases they have made It possible for a man to take a second Job so that he can buy a (aster car. In the heavily populated areas that are ever expanding this leads to the frustration of traveling bumper to bumper and hub to hub. In other cases the new car has enabled the buyer to shave a few seconds off his race to a collision. To others Increased leisure means more sodden hours watching violence on television. In tfiis ease It is not the diversion that is at fault but the use of It to the exclusion of the development of inner resources. Setting aside 20 or 30 minutes a i day for contemplative thought or Improving one's mind with great literature, music and art can heal a troubled spirit as no tran- quillzer or miracle drug can do. Everyone should have a restful nobby, a place to pursue it and a special time for Its enjoyment. The dictionary gives as one definition of "retreat" —! a safe, quiet, secluded place. If ever each man needed such a place it is now. Many of us, in 1 the turmoil that surrounds us, 1 have actually become frightened of solitude. I believe we should try to recapture some of its healing propensites before it hat completely vanished from tht face of the earth. Williams Leaves on 10-Day African Trip WASHINGTON (AP) — O.
