Down the hall, Amandus James Jansen, who say he's 105 and was a bodyguard of President Williaim McKinley at the time of his assassination in 1901, was napping to save up his strength "for a big party I've got to go to tonight" In the lobby oldtime cow boy actor Art Mix, 68, (no relation to Tom Mix) sat in his Stetson hat and with cufflinks the size of poker chips, watching the world of the Commodore Hotel go by slowly. I tell you, pardner," said Art, "I used to turn over stagecoaches and wagons and come up with nary a scratch and now, pardner, gotta be careful steppm' off the curb!" More Show Business There was show business reminiscence in the air, too, in the cluster where Carrie Swiggum, 79, was chatting her eyes still sparkling and her cheeks a flaming rouge. "Honey, said Carrie with a wink and a nudge, when asked if she were a widow, let's leave that out I'm an oldtime chorus girl!" Other elderly folk may be lured to the desert or the seashore for retirement, but the sidewalks of downtown Los Angeles roll past the Com modore for those who lived in the bright lights of the ci ty and wouldn t want to leave for a minute for fear of missing some of the action And, strangely enough, the man who serves as hotel manager, recreation direo tor, diet watcher and some time lonely-heart consultant is a 22-year-old hotel schoo graduate, William K. (Bill) Shanley, a bachelor. Active. Retired Living Eighteen months ago the Continental Pacific Hotels added the Commodore to their chain of five in San Francisco, Oakland and Fresno converted to "active retired living" city-style .The charge is $95 to $150 a month, which includes two meals a day,' maid service once a week, free movies and bingo. Shanley, with shoulders broad enough to be cried on occasionally, also finds he can be firm enoughor even wise ' enough to solve the petty squabbles that brea the calm. "Were not a nursing home," he said, "because these folks don't need that." While he talked he toyed with a wire coat hanger, which had been decorously woven over with colored yarn. "Oh, this? One of the ladies fell down last week " he said "and she gave me this gift for picking her up. Far-Fetched Tales Some of the stories out of the past to which Bill listens are taller than the late Baron Munchausen's but no one in the Commodore is about to disturb anyone else's dreams of past glory, for then they might not find listeners for theirs. Then there's the kindly' faced old gentleman who sits ramrod-erect in the lobby, whose clothes seem to be o the finest cloth but of a pre-World War I cut. He doesn't talk of the past yet, this, too, gives him fu ture ss the ujmmoaorea oid of mystery., Kli family. REMEMBERS Carrie Swiggum, 79, who traveled with vaudeville team of Gallagher and Shean. Times Phota name is that of one of the w o r 1 d's great munitions kings of the early 20th century- "But there must be no publicity thait is one of tha agreements, he smiles enigmatically. No word on with whom he has the "agree ments." No Patience Herr e Ask white-haired Aman dus Jansen about his career, though, and you needn't worry about the proverbial light being hidden under the bushel. If he was McKinley's bo dyguard, where was he at the moment the President was shot in Buffalo by the wild-eyed Leon Czolgosz? "I, he said, clearing his throat and looking down through his pLnce-nc? at the palm tree print on his tie, was In the rcftjtroom." Then there' the grand dame of the ante-bellum South, the widow Pauline Chidester, with her accent thick as clover honey and the refinement of a turn-of-the-century belle. Paying her court is Frank W. Howell, 76, a miner of the Old West. And near them is Jerry Latch, 68, who was a chauffeur for the Wrlgleys of chewing-gum fortune now serving part time as bellman at the Commodore.
