.PAGE TWELVE THf 6MKJV- TEARS THE PHAKOS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPOBT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA A Job After Age 65 ... And No Embarrassment By THOMAS COLLINS ;•• Retirement comes to you in about the same way ^Christmas comes to a child—that is, if you are a reason•ably normal person. C Y ? u find the days leading -up to it filled'with expectation On Betirement Day itself your cup runs over Then comes the letdown. Then the settling down to .quiet cold winter—or a ride on a-bobsled. ;* Eugene J. Garrett chose the bobsled, and since ;1358 has been having a good retirement ride. jy. Mr. Garrett was wliite-cqHar, had a supervisory 'job over 14 other employees/and had reached a salary peak of $175 a week. -:. "The'crucial point of a retirement," says Mr. Gar- 'rett, "is when the letdown Tvears off and the settling down begins. . ;;"You can't do much about the build-up to retirement that the: company puts you through. I tends to make you a bum during your'last year on the job.

Still, the boss thinks the build-up is a big deal so you ride; along with it. "You can ? t do much about' the Retirement Day ceremony either^ The boss again—and you're an oddball if you don't let' hinrmake his little'talk? .-'../ "THE LETDQWN, following tributes' that ^give the -impression the company would never'-haye made 'it without Good Old You, is natural'.. .. ." But then, according to Mr Garrett, comes the moment you CAN do something about . . . the moment you decide whether you'll sit down with the pension and drift, which is easy, or venture forth to; find something new to do with your life, which is tough. "I prodded myself into the bobsled -ride,".Mr. Garrett says. "I ventured forth . . ." And Mr. : Garrett insists that the problem here is ' not what you :hink it is. "Naturally-a retired man who -does anythingought to do something that pays him money. Money is our yardstick oi worth. And it's not too difficull for the . average retired man to sell his labor. Almost any retiree person can get a job' if, willing to accept the kind of job and pa) that is available . . ."

Third Strnt Dial 3751 INSURE IN SURE INSURANCE MR. GARRETT SAYS this is the problem. A retired person is usually ashamed, to'accept wha' is available. "I couldn't find : thingjthat would give me 14 people to boss' and, ?175 a week after" I retired," he "explains. "But any thing less, would have, been em barrassing "to --me," with iny neigh borsilwith the people I had worket with, with friends, around town arid with iny' own ego. "Don't think this is trivial. For a man it is virtually unbearable especially when—as an alternative —he can' sit down on his 'pension and say nuts-to-it-all. He doesn' want fellows back at the com pany saying 'Poor Old George. Also, he/doesn't want a new boss who pushes him around . . . am the boss he has on the level oi the job he can get 'is often the pushy type. There's none of this 'Now, Mr. Garrett, I'd' appreciate your doing this tomorrow.' "More likely it's a matter of 'Hey, Garrett, get th« lead out of your pants and get that job dqne!' : . "This'.all/makes a bobsled ride a seriously distasteful prospect to a retired man," says Mr. Garrett. FOR ABOUT TEN months he endured it. But instead o! giving it up as a bum guess he set about figuring a way to make it palatable. Which he did. He made a deal with a large real estate company engaged in building and selling homes. The deal provided that he would be "Special Assistant to the President." That sounded big with friends, neighbors and former coworkers. The deal also provided ,that he could work when he felt j like it. That took care of any straw boss who wanted to yell "Hey, Garrett." The deal, actually, was for a job selling subdivision houses. In exchange for his fine title and an understanding that he would stay on the job from spring to fall he agreed to three-iourths as much commission as the company's other salesmen were getting. ... Since last May-Mr.. Garrett, as of .this date, has banked $4,200 commissions., He and-Mrs. Garrett will spend the. winter on ;t, in Hollywood, Fla., and nexl May he will .return in glory to his ''executive" position which incidentally, he has found : quite enjoyable.
