And there are a- goodly number of washable white leather shoes*— some in combination with brown or black leather. The new featherweight leathers made for summer shoes are cool and comfortable in any temperature. A true suburbanite, the moccasin is equally at ease on the patio, under a backyard tree or stepping along behind a power mower. Its ultra-pliable leather sole will give Dad all the support he needs all week-end long, yet, won't tire him out with unnecessary weight, . Slip-ons' in glove and brushed leather are designed for the easy life. Dad can slip in or out of them at will. Afoot they feel just as comfortable as a slipper. A smooth leather lining makes walking- a cool, friction-free experience. Slip- ons tend to be a bit dressier this summer with" tapered toe, perforations and wingtip designs. If Dad- is the 'active outdoors type you'll do well to select a pair of high-reaching desert boots. The soft, supple leather — glove-soft or brushed — keeps.,him happy at any pace.

BROADWAY 'PHONE 41 86 The Golden Years . . . 'Coward' Believes Best To Retire In Home Town "I am not going to move away from my home when I retire 'because I'm a coward. I think a lot of other people would be better .off if they were, too " This is how a man named Miller answers a man named Harris who advocated last'week that retired people move away from the old home when the pension came. '•• ' • • "I kid you somewhat when I say I'm a coward," says Mr. Miller. "At my age th'e word is 'conservative.' But it's all the same. I am simply afraid of what, I would run into if I moved from a community that has been my friend for 21 years. "Suppose I retired • North, say to Chicago or Philadelphia. The awful cold, the racial problems, the big-town politics—I wouldn't know how to cope with those, problems. Suppose I moved'West, or South. I'd run into weather problems, insect problems and air conditioners. Again, I wouldn't be equipped to cope. "But here where I live I know the problems intimately and know how to handle or dodge very one of them. I know which are good folks and which bad folks, safe streets and mean ones, where to buy things for the lowest price, and where I can go see a doctor for $5 per office call instead of going to a specialist for $15." Mr. Miller is afraid to swap his problems for^some he won't understand. He says he's afraid, too, to give up his status as a law- abiding citizen, his reputation as a reasonably decent fellow, and his credit rating . . . and try to establish them again in a com- munity th~at doesn't know him. "This is .very important," ~he says, "and some people don't realize it. If my wife and I moved into a new area the people there would presume we were nice people, but it would take a while to convince them. And credit in the corner store or at the hardware, which I have now, would probably never come-~not to a pensioner in a new town. All right, you don'.t need it. Still, it's a great comfort to know you don't have to prove things all over again to get it if you do. "I am almost as big a coward about giving up my reputation as I am about giving up my problems. . ." Mr. Miller also feels qyite negative about the effort he and his wife would have to make to gain new .friends if they move away. "I don't Want to have to promote us in the right places, inject us into new groups, always be care- ful to .go to the proper events and say the .proper things. After all these years of being comfortable among the people around us I would be embarrassed to be a pusher again." Loneliness looms large also on Mr. Miller's horizon. He admits that he and Mrs. Miller have only a few intimate friends where they now live, and says they go out only occasionally. '.'Still, we know most of the neighbors for four blocks around and there's companionship of sorts in that. I would feel like I lived on an abandoned island if I lived in a-neighborhood where I knew nobody." Mr. Miller has figured that it will cost him $1,730 a year to live on in his $14,000 house, and $1,800 a year to move away to a retire- ^ent apartment. "It'll take $150 a month to get an apartment that is even close to the level of living we have in our six-room house," he explains. "All these people who' talk about moying away to cheaper quarters are talking about lesser quarters. . ." He breaks down the $1,730 per year on his house as follows: $600 in taxes, $200 in insurance, $300 for upkeep, and $630 he could get in interest on the $14,000 if he sold the house and invested the money. "And you mustn't forget that you don't sell and move for nothing. You pay a commission on the sale of the house, and you pay a big fat sum for transfer of all the stuff your wife won't throw away. "I don't doubt that you can get out of sight in retirement and go barefoot and eat flapjacks, and you won't be embarrassed because nobody knows you. But is this a good retirement? Dollar for dollar', the couple who stays where they are in retirement (if it's in their own home and not in an apartment) are going to come out about as well as the other fellow. . ."
