''Money is our yardstick of worth. And it's not too difficult for- the average retired man to sell his -labor. Almost any retired person can get a job if willing to accept the kind of job and pay that is available . MR. GARRETT SAYS this is the problem. A retired person is usually ashamed to accept what is, available "I couldn't find a thing that would give me 14 people to boss and $175 a week after I retired,"" he explains. "But anything less would have been embarrassing to me with my neighbors, with the people I had worked with, with friends around town and with-my own ego. "Don't think this is trivial. For a. man it is virtually unbearable, especially when—as an alternative —he can 1 sit down on his pensior and say nuts-to-il-a)l. He doesn't want fellows "back at the com' pany saying 'Poor Old George.' Also, he doesn't want a new boss who pushes him around . . . and the boss he has on the level of the job he .can get is often the pushy type. There's none of this *Now, i ,Mr. 'Garrett, I'd appreciate your doing this tomorrow. "More likely it's' a matter of 'Hey, Garrett, get the lead out of your pants' and get that job done!' "This 1 all makes a bobsled ride a seriously distasteful prospect to a retired man," says Mr. Garrett. THE NEW-NEW HOMEOWNERS COVERAGE DWELLING-CONTENTS- CRIME & LIABILITY PROTECTION in -.-•...
