SUNDAY, DECEMBER 31,196L THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS. LOGANSPORT, INDIANA PAGE FTVe m GOLDEN WARS Retirement Check List For A 60-Year-Old Man . "For several years I had been trying to get some idea,-or make 'some plan, whereby my husband and ] could work-out our retirement when the both of us had to quit our jobs. "Many couples our age were in line for a pension, or for .two pensions if both worked. We were not. Many others had 'been able to save money and make investments that would provide retirement income. .We had not ..." And so, a year ago last April .this woman's husband fell victim to asthma and was forced to retire . • • still with no plan for retirement worked out. He 'was 66. The wife, doing' office work, was nearing 62. ' "AH we had in income was Social Security, my husband getting his right away. I had to wait several months until my 62nd birthday. We also had a nice equity in a piece of city property where we lived, and where taxes were going higher each year. . ." "We found a beautiful location. I believe it has the most beautiful valley view in .all of Kansas. It has a stucco house on it, good outbuildings, a small orchard CHEERS ^ TO ALL IN '62 and thanks for your patronage JBAVS PIZZERIA 13th At Broadway Phone 5926 and a strawberry patch. It also has two big ponds, stocked with fish. It has worlds of'blackberry bushes, which furnish us with more, berries than we can ever pick. x "We have a wooded, area where there is good hunting. We are near a large lake where there is fishing and boating." What sort of retirement satisf ac tion does this setting bring to Lois of luck and succm* to our good DJAL 2374 a couple who has only Social Security for income?. A splendid one, according to his wife. "People say we are too old to be on a farm, that the work is too hard. But we are very happy. We do not have a boss over us. We get up and go to bed when we please. We can go hunting or fishing' any time we want, or if we choose we can just sit on our-front porch and enjoy the beautiful view God has given us.. "We have a phone, good roads, and are near, a small town where we'can attend church and social functions. We have friends who love to come to the farm to visit us.' We are not lonely. . ." This woman and her husband have cows and chickens on their farm, and have developed a large garden. They have a freezer. They also have -started canning. They are providing a large part of their own food. They have started a herd of calves on the place and hope in time to supplement their income' with it . ."Life is much better than if we were trying to exist in a small city apartment Of course we may not always be able to continue this country living. But we do not think we are old yet If more people would not get to telling themselves they are old. when they reach their 60's they would learn there is much happiness waiting [or them in retirement." This couple, like others before them, proves that a retired cou- ple can move to a farm and find the good life ... if ; they have the stuff for it. Not all couples'do. There is isolation -on, a farm, even if not loneliness. There is day-by-day confinement if cows and chickens are to be taken care of. There is: work in producing food. As imporaht as anything lelse, perhaps, is the fact that.-the niceties of city life do not always carry, over to the farm. A barnyard, for instance, is no-perfumed patio. — Still, if you have the stuff, there is probably more personal satisfaction for a retired couple : on a Farm., than anywhere else . what jwith'the work with.the hands that must be done, and the closeness to nature.

Here is one played by Bill Acker of Freer, T*x., at the Corpus Christi tournament When Bill looked over the dummy after the diamond lead, his first impulse was to with the king or queen, let East make his ace and eventually discard one of his clubs on dummy's remaining high diamond. This way, the slam would be lay down provided the hearts broke 3-2, but Bill decided to insure against a 4-1 heart break. He knew that West was not the sort of player to lead away from an ace against a slam- contract, so Bill called for the four of diamonds from dummy. As long as East held the ace of diamonds, Bill had nothing to lose by this play because he would be able to lead the king of diamonds through East later. Now put yourself in East's position. What would you do? You would go up with the ace of diamonds just as he did. After this Bill was able to draw trumps and get two discards on dummy's diamonds to wind up as the only South player to make a slam. In Science Listings J. W. (Jack) Stuart, son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Stuart, 1018 Twentieth, was listed in "American Men of Science" for his work as a contributing author of the recently, published book, "Digital Applications of Magnetic Devices."

TO VISIT U.S. TOKYO (AP)-Gen.

First,, he went • to the regular convention called for mid-April, in Charleston, South Carolina, probably .about the most important, if net actually the. largest, city in the nation. .The South was actually the dominant section of the country then: But that .first Convention broke up in a row after a ten,'days session without having accomplished anything; they made no nominations, but adjourned* to meet again in Baltimore in June. Not only was the Democratic Party hopelessly divided; the entire country was in the same shape. The cause of all the trouble, of course, was'slavery. Not alone the mere^atter of .holding slaves, but there were new territories west of the Mississippi clamoring for admission to the Union, and the 'southern states, which were slave-holding,"insisted that these should come in as slaveholding states, while the northern states were equally insistent that they must be free-soil. The political party line-up was different then. There was no Ee- publican party;, the Whigs opposed the Democrats before 1854, when the Eepublicans came into the field with their first presidential candidate, General John C. Fremont, who was beaten by James Buchanan. While the Republicans" didn't adopt an anti-slavery platform at, first, the current of events seems to have forced that role upon 636 Cass Business Firms Listed In Dun And Bradsfreel There are 636 local manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers in Cass county listed in the annual Dun and Bradstreet business publication. The report, which covers all fifty states and lists approximately three million businesses, covers the four principal communities in Cass county—Logansport, Walton, Royal Center and Galveston. The breakdown by communities: Logansport, 503; Walton, 35; Royal Center, 33. and Galveston, 24. This list does not include some of the- service and professional businesses, such as beauty and barber shops, security dealers, and real estate brokers. Clarence W. Shearer Rites Here Tuesday Final services for Clarence W. Shearer, 76, .of Detroit, former local resident, will be at 10:30 Tuesday morning at the McCIos- key-Hamilton-Kahle funeral home. The Reverend Irving Phillips will officiate and burial will be in Mt. Hope cemetery. Friends may call at the funeral home after two o'clock this afternoon. His marriage was to the former Myrtle Phillips, who survives. Other survivors in this area are a nephew, Carl Scubach, 626 Culbertson; Mrs. Fred Muinzer, East Market street; Mrs. Hazel Stephens, route 2, city. Another nephew and a niece live in Marion and a fourth niece lives in Ohio. His death occurred at 12:15 a.m. Friday at Mt. Carmel hospital, Detroit. He had lived in that city 42 years. Born in Huntington Aug. 19, 1885, he was the son of William I. and Ida Teal Shearer. Car Damaged Kevin P. Hooley, Jr., 311 Twelfth, reported to city police that a lit-and-run driver struck his car sometime between 4 and 8:30 a.m. Saturday while parked in front of 206 Fourth. He said the left front fender, grill, hood and door were damaged. them. They were soon k n o w n among the Democrats,; especially, in the south, as "Black Republicans". That epithet was applied to Abraham Lincoln, .especially, after he became the presidential •nominee in' 1860. , So Sam Hall attended his second National' Convention in I860 in Baltimore, Maryland, in June. That one did better than its-predecessor, for it made a nomination; two, if the vice-presidential nominee is counted. Stephen A. Douglas, of Illinois, was their choice. Because he was a northern man he failed to suit southern delegates,-.who "seceded"," went to Richmond for a second rump convention, /and nominated a southerner, John C. Breddnridge, a Kentucfcian,- 1 and vice-president of the United' States under James Buchanan. . j , '.. Action Splits Ticket ' .That split the.Democratic ticket and, as such, action always does, and assured the election of the candidate of the opposing party, Abraham Lincoln in this case. While Douglas had been an opponent of Lineolri for a long time in his home state,—Lincoln, you remember, was also an Illinois man —after Lincoln's election Douglas forgot partisan matters, assured Lincoln of his hearty support, and actually did support him until his death, which occurred a year or so later. '-• While Breckinridge's state, Kentucky, didn't secede, he joined the Confederate army, becoming an'officer.of "high rank before the close of the war. He had also become a United'States senator, taking an unexpired term, but was expelled within a year because of his entry into the Rebel army. Not all northern Democrats were as loyal as candidate Douglas. Thousands of them, joined disloyal groups, such as the "Copperheads", "Knights of the Golden Circle", "Sons of Freedom", and several others, all about alike in their disloyalty, if not actual tr son. Such a group existed in Adams township, Cass county, during the war. Joseph Lease, for whom Lease's comer was named, joined the group for the purpose of exposing them, which he succeeded in doing, according to Dr. Powell. Members' of the ' Circle were so greatly incensed against him th.it he had to go into hiding for some time, according to the Doctor. Sim Hall, like his candidate, Douglas, proved his loyalty throughout the four-year conflict. He was active in everything pertaining to the successful conduct of the war. His name appears on many committees, and he was in attendance at practically every public -meeting held to promote the furtherance of the Union cause. : «k (f^ Happy New Year To All from Everyone at 326 East Broadway New Year's Resolution . . . to'be an asset to our community through service.
