Josephine Lowmon Activity Clubs Are Helpful to Oldsters Many people have found an answer to old age in the "Over 65" Clubs. •t The vision of gerontology is not 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 mojre 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.. 408 E..MARKET IT SENSATIONAL BARGAINS Monday Only!

The .trend is toward smaller homes in which there is no room for the older generation. Then, too, compulsory retirement at the age of 65 is a damaging factor. Ma'ny 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 scientists and researchers are saying over and over again that hard work never hurt anyone, that both physical and mental activity are essential to i 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 in the "Over 65" Clubs. These are becoming quite widely dis tributed over the country. One of these, which is in the Bronx in New York City, now has a membership of 700. They have a clubhouse and ail sorts of committees and are as busy as bees. The exciting thing to know is that since its 7 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? and the rejuvenating effect of eager interest is a known fact. The distinguished Dr. Howard Rusk says of the "Over 65" Clubs, "This is the preventative medicine of the future." Tomorrow: "Teen-agers Should Not neglect Skin Blemishes."
