Henry J. Bailey obtained his first full-time job at the John Waters dry goods store. He then worked 10 years for Dewinter the Hatter before he bought out the John Ford Tailoring Store $16 No More No Less in 1912. Thai store was located on East Broad way and is now part of the Gold en Rule department store. The late James Porter' of the Porter shoe store was his first customer after he started in business for himself. After three years, Mr. Bailey started adding men's furnishings such as hats, shirts, and ties. It was not until 1918, when he moved the store to its present location, that he changed the name to Bailey's. THE STORE at first occupied only the first floor of 425429 East Broadway, but after three years Mr. Bailey opened a clothing department" on the second floor. In 1938 he purchased the building at 431 East Broadway and expanded the bdys' department into the new Section. Since the founder's death in 1942, the business has been opei'- ated by his three sons, Edwin, Paul, and Richard Bailey. The store was remodeled five years ago into its present arrangement. An elevator was installed at that time. Bailey.'s clothing store always has stressed quality, and all of its merchandise consists of well known brand names. The Golden Years . . . Wife Wants Younger Spouse To Retire By THOMAS COLLINS "I am 69 years old and my husband is 63, and more than anything in the world I want to take him away from his job before it kills him . . . and save him for my own." This wife has lived through 34 years of marriage without letting her husband know she is older than he is. And 'she is not about to let him know now. But neither does she intend to lose him at a time of life when she could hope for nothing beyond being a "lonely old lady." "My husband, so far as I can tell, .is secure enough in his job," she says. "He has been with the company almost 30 years, and is thought well of. But for the last two years or so he has been | ~, more apprehensive about!band retire .now'. This would in- his security. "Maybe it was because he passed 60. Maybe something'hap- pened at the office he never told me about. Anyway he has been trying harder and harder. At first he began staying after hours in the afternoon. Then he started going to the company on Saturdays. Then he began going earlier in the mornings. "He is working himself to death. I can't stop him. I argue. I threaten. I purposely become disagreeable all day Sunday whcii he goes in on Saturday.

The .next step is to look around for enough additional tricks to insure making the contract. After that, you can and should think about overtricks, but not before. South can count two hearts, three diamonds and two clubs for a total of seven sure tricks at his three no-trump contract. He has two potential extra trick's in hearts if he can finesse successfully for the queen and break the suit. He may also gain an extra trick in dubs if the finesse for that queen works. But finesses don't always work and if South looks further he can find two sure tricks in the spade suit. All he must do is to leac spades twice. The defense will take the ace and king, whereupon South will wrap up those two needed tricks. inspades. Can anything bad happen to South while he is setting up those two spades? No! He still has two stoppers in each of the other suits and has plenty of time. What about the finesses? He can try them later if he wishes, but his first job is to make sure of his contract. elude her own Social Security though she hasn't figured, out yet how she is going to prove to Social Security that she's old :nough without revealing it to her lusband). "My husband wouldn't have to retire into nothing," says the wife. "For years he has been col- ecting old-fashioned lamps, and U.S. postage stamps—no, I don't see the connection between them either. But they've been his hob- 3.y. And one dresser drawer is filled with the 'latter of those, and the basement is half full of .he other. "I don't know whether he should become a stamp trader or whether he should go into the lamp business. But surely one or the other would give him something to occupy his time if he retired, and I imagine would give us some income if we need it. don't think we do. "How can I make him quit?" By giving him a carrot instead of the whip. But first, a couple of thoughts: This wife is smart. She kept her man from knowing she was six years his, senior for 34 years, which would have taken some fast thinking along in the 40's, and now at 69 she has the gumption to know that husbands do die and that it shouldn't happen to 69-year-old woman. She was smart in the first place —since' men usually die before women do, it's a clever woman who-marries a man younger than herself. Now down to cases-r Most husbands after 60 feel se cure in their jobs and quietly start tapering off. Some don't A psychiatrist might figure thi husband was campaigning tc make himself so valuable the ompany couldn't afford to retire lim at 65. Whatever, the wife hinks he is overworking. A wife hould know. Most men can be lured into hings that bulldozers couldn't [rive them into—retirement, for nstance. And this husband seems be all set up for luring, because of his lamp hobby (stamps won't do much for you in retirement) and because of what must surely be an interesting wife. The old lamps can be converted quite simply into a cubbyhole an- ique shop in some resort area. They can provide work with the lands, 'and an artistic outlet, as .he husband converts them to modern use. They are a fascinat- ng collector's item, and the hus- jand and Ms wife can find some of their finest adventures by roaming through the Tennessee Valley and through rural areas almost anywhere looking for the old automobile and buggy lamps and the old parlor- oil lamps . . . and electrifying them for sale at profit. A wife can sell this sort of thing to her husband and lure him right out of his job. Some books 'rom the library and some tours .hrough antique shops will help. Also, she can prove to him that .he $254 income they'll have will be enough. The wife who has concern about lealth of her older husband must act, and act firmly. A husband, 5eing a man, simply cannot believe he will ever die.
