PAGE SIXTEEN THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE -and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA SUNDAY, OCTOBER 30, I860. Josephine Lowman Activity Clubs Are Helpful to-Oldsters Many people^ave found an answer to old age in the "Over 65" Clubs. The vision of gerontology is riot so much to lengthen life as to add life to later years, or to prolong the youthful portion of life. Long life without this-is- an uncertain blessing. ^ ; '• The fact;that more and more folks,are.living past the age 65 poses many problems for older people themselves and for their children. In the .United .States there are around 15 million -men and women past 65 years of age: There-were only.three million in 1900. Since 2,000 people a day .join this age group, it is easy to foresee the terrific problems of the future. 4'08E.MARKET ST SENSATIONAL BARGAINS Monday Only! 'Sanforized. 14 to 17.

Families are scattered anc the big family house has practically disappeared. The trend is toward smaller.. homes in which there'JS "no.-, room /for -the bidet- generation. Then, too, compulsory retirement at the age of 65 is a damaging factor. Many who are well and. active and valuable:are forced; to sit on the sidelines. In most cases the psychological effect-on the employee is most drastic. Our'saentists-:>and researchers are saying over and over again that hard work never hurt anyone, that both physical and mental activity are essential to a youthful older age. After all, age is a question of condition rather than years. In the United States .'many people have: found an answer to old age Jn the "Over 65" Clubs. These are becoming quite widely 'dis-^ tributed over the country. One' of these, which is m the Bronx in New York City,'now has a membership of 700. They have a clubhouse and all sorts of. committees and are as busy as bees. The exciting thing to know is that since its formation the visits of" its members to clinics and hospitals for medical aid' have been cut in half: Who can estimate the killing effect of loneliness and boredom, of not having a niche in which one is wanted 'and' needed'by others? arid ''the rejuvenating effect of eager interest is a known 'fact. The distinguished Dr. Howard Rusk says of the "Over 65" Clubs, "This is the preyentative medicine of the future." Tomorrow: "Teen-agers Should Not neglect Skin Blemishes." ..
