SUNDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1960. THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and .LIBRARY PAGE THREE Retired Men Enjoy Kitchen 'Engineering' BY MARIE DAERR "Don't chase your husband out of the kitchen. Encourage him to share~the chores." • . . This advice to wives of retired men come from Aaron Lipman, assistant professor of sociology at the University of Miami, Coral Gables, Fla. , . , .'••'.' In Lipman's opinion, such lowly chores as emptying the trash and washing the dishes rank high as morale-builders for men who are drawing pensions or social security, instead of a salary. "Sharing household .tasks makes for companionship and compat- ability," Lipman says. "When she is young, a woman considers being a good provider her husband's most important role. A man wants his wife to be a good homemaker. •"' . ' . "In the later years, after retirement, love, understanding, companionship and compatability are the important things." Helping with household tasks gives husbands a feeling of usefulness and worth, Lipman states. But, he warns, men don't want to be urged to learn such a complicated task as cooking. "They want to do things that require no special skill," Lipman maintains. Lipman's advice is the result of a study he made. He talked to 100 couples over 60 years of age in metropolitan Miami. More than 80 per cent were migrants from other states. Most were well educated. Most of the 'men had good jobs before retirement. Three-fourths of wives surveyed said their h-is'iands did the marketing, or helped them with it. More than half of the husbands cleared the breakfast table, wiped the.dishes and picked up and put away clothes. Other tasks the men did were: cleaning, dusting, making beds and preparing breakfast. Lipman reports that 62 per cent of the women and 5& per cent of the men thought that, when a man retires, his wife has'a definite right to expect her husband to help with the chores. "When the men were asked how they felt about doing such tasks, only 4 per cent gave a truly negative reply," Lipman states. * * ' * Q—Will you please tell me how to get a copy of the booklet, "Little Strokes," mentioned in a recent column?—L. -R B A—"Little Strokes," Public Health Service Publication No. 689, may be obtained for 10 cents from the Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government' Printing Office, Washington. 25, D.C. * * * Q—My husband is drawing disability benefits under social security.

Tony Randall Never Been Out of Work NEW YORK (UPI) — Tony Randall's mother was a cousin of silent screen vamp Theda, Bara, but he doesn't think that's why he became an actor. "I never met herj'' he said. "I do remember I saw a play in junior high school;and thought ;'I could do that Better: than they .do," Randall recalled. Whatever the reason! an actor is 'all- he ever wanted to be, back home in Tulsa, Okla. And an actor is all he ever has been - r except a wartime soldier — since he left Northwestern University. "I'm one of the few actors who has never been out.of-work," he said. "I've never had a^ black week." Back in the '40s he was .one of the "lucky actors/who .did all the work on radio," rushing from one studio ,to another with no time out necessary for makeup. Getting Established He was getting his feet well established in the Broadway stage door at the same time. And then along came television. Who has forgotten Mr. Peepers' friend? "That was the turning point in my life,"'Randall said. "I got a chance to prove I could play comedy." . He recently had a sort of black week in TV, however, rehearsing a sort of wrestling match on a dirty floor for "Hooray for Love," a comedy special on which he appears with Art Carney (and some loveable types) Sunday night. (Sunday, Oct. 2 CBS) . He and' Carney, also have a scene in Swedish,' he said, which all good Swedes will quickly discover isn't any more Swedish than Theda Bara (who grew up in Cincinnati with Mrs. Randall). '''My current ambition is -to be on stage 'at the Lincoln Square 'thing the night, it opens," Randall' said. The thing. is a repertory theatre; it may open in 1963.

"Most in the world I would like to play Othello, but it's impossible," he.said. He's not big and heavy enough. He'd settle for la- go. Randall and his wife, an Oklahoma girl he met at Northwestern, and an "earth person" (not in show business), live in an apartment on Central Park West with "the most wonderful view of the New York skyline."

Conviction could . mean prison terms of 2-14' years for Carpenters President Maurice A. Hutcheson, Vice President'0. William Blaier and Secretary-treasurer Frank M. Chapman. The three were indicted Feb. 18, 1958, on cha;ges of conspiracy to commit a felony' and of bribery in highway land deals in Lake and Wavne counties. Since that time two other men have entered, prison in the road scandals and other officials have' resigned under fire. I Eight special judges were chosen to hear the case, and four of them flatly refused to 'take it. Three others did serve, but a series of complex le^al maneuvers kept the case stalled. • Judge M..
