SUNDAY, OCTOBER 9, I960. THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT JPKESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA PAGE FIVE THE GOLDIN YEARS How To Fix Things To Retire At 60 ' • - , : By THOMAS COLLINS - Retirement'at age 65, as you have'probably figured out by now,' is not something that "was designed by, or for, the 65-year-old people. , You,- could shut, your eyes and pick almost any other age . . and set up a happier retirement time. Age 65 is a little top late for most people to start again, and a little too soon to-stop. Mr. Arthur Williamson is 1 going to do something about this .Not for you or for me. But for Mr. William- "I am -59. My wife is 57. We are both reasonably- sibility -of setting up in the retirement country-where he's going an income , tax service for retired folks."" ' ' , "I'm of the opinion," says Mr. Williamson, '.'that- there's some Naed Buildings At ; .Hpojier_College$ BLOOMINGTON, Jnd! (AP) Hoosier colleges and universities should spend,$372 million dollar: on new" buildings in the 'next 12 years, the Indiana Conference^ of Higher Education said Friday.' 'The group, comprised.of Indiana's ,33 Colleges and universities, predicted enrollment by 1972 will hit. 149,000 students — compared with 83,000 reported lasf year.

And here is how he 'will carry -it, out: ; "On my 60th birthday," he says, "I am going to quit nhe "company I have served for 26 years. At that time I'can draw a bobtailed pension of $104 a month for life.'With this .$104 and some sharp f guring my wife and I. can have financial, security . . .", Mr. and Mrs. Williamson own a good house, and think, they can net $16.000 if they sell it. They have 57,200 ,in a savings account, Mr. Williamson has $10,000 in life insurance.-that-he 'can-'convert to paid-up insurance at age 60, with and savings," says Mr. Williamson. "The $10,000 insurance, plus the S7.200 savings and accumulated! interest, plus the interest accumu ' lated on. the house money, shoulc give my widow at least $19,000 If she spent this, at fhe rate ol $100 a month—which is about all she'd need in addition to her $75 a cash value'of about S4;000.' I Social Security and. the trailer— '"WE ARE GOING to sell oiir house," 'Mr. Williamson, says, "and, buy aJ4,000 "used trailer,' either'in the Arizona-California area or in 'Florfda. This will leave us-.$12,000 out;of the Jiouse money. the -$19,00.0 should-.carry- her. for about 16 years And this,doesn't count the interest she, would ''be getting each year on the unused portion of the $19,000 .-.' i. "IF I DIED at' 66, my wife "We'll spend "this 512,000, in would.be 64. if she can have this equal installments, over the five kind of security for 16 years, or years until my Social Security until age SO, we are.both willing starts. This will average out to about $2,400 a year or $200 a 'month; The $200 added .'to my bobtailed pension will give 1 us $304 a month] In- a paid-up trailer in a warm climate we'll have security,.. ...-; : ' ' Mr. Williamson plans to put the $12.000 in an 'insured savings' and Joan association where he can get to gamble on it. After all, this is more than 20 years down the'road from now. Surely Social Security and medical care for the aged will be more generous ... ;" Mr. Williamson concedes that he] has not covered all bases in his plan to retire at 60.
