THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA SUNDAY, JUNE 24, 1962 Cliff Patients Enjoy Recreation Program There should be no age barrier on recreation..and this is exactly the sentiment of the recreation staff at the Logansport State Hospital. Men and women of all ages participate in some form of physical endeavor from long walks and picnics to Softball. Recreation Director Carl Luebbert and his staff have a tough problem in getting some of the patients' to take part, but have succeeded in a vast- majority of cases. LUEBBERT HAS Sid Sitter as Recreation Superintendent -and three recreation leaders in Rosalie Brown, Guy Mills and Frank Smith. Frank Thomas, Doug Lake, Ann Smith, and LaVern Parme- tor are recreation aids, Sue Jargstorf is the clerk librarian and Jack Lane is an institutional work. eiv Helping in the department during the summer are several college students; Jim Cox, Sue Hively, Ken Isles, Lawrence Vander- weiler and two life guards at-the hospital's swimming pool,'Ed Fitzgerald and Eugene Harkin. Almost any day ,of the week a visitor can find the patients earnestly competing on the miniature golf course, playing Softball or swimming in the hospital's beau-, tiful outdoor pool. THE MINIATURE course was built several years ago by the patients themselves and it is usually filled to capacity. Luebbert has the recreation program divided into three groups —Games and Sports; Social Rec- reation; and Special Activities and Events. The first undertakes the softball program, basketball in the winter, andi many, sports and games. many other The hospital has its own intramural program for the patients and Longcliff also has a 'softball team, made up of patients and employes, that plays the best softball teams in the area. -LAST SUMMER the hospital had its own invitational, tournament in which teams from Lafayette, Kokomo, Peru and Logansport took part. The hospital team was good enough to finish second. The social recreation provides dances, picnics, etc. There is a rathskeller in the middle of the grounds where patients can play cards, dance and in general relax and enjoy themselves without supervision. . In the special activities department the patients have a big Fourth of July celebration for which there is a parade and floats. The 'floats are made by the patients themselves and ideas for the parade are gathered by the supervisors. This year a group of amateur circus performers from Peru will be the headliners on the program. IN AUGUST the hospital holds its annual carnival. For this, each department at Longcliff has a booth where the patients dunk for apples, throw darts, etc. An almost countless list of other activities are available to the patients. There are garden clubs, nature clubs, flower clubs and the hospital newspaper. The BOXBORO Model T307S Elegant Danish Modern console In genuine voneors and select hardwood solids.

The Golden Years $92 A Month At Age 62- How To Retire And Live By THOMAS COLLINS Here is the financial story of a man who wants to retire at age 62 on an income of $92 a month. He can do it, if he is smart, because he has a couple of extra resources and a 59-year-old wife who approves, "We have .savings of $21,000," the wife says, "and we have two small houses fully paid for. We would live in,one house and rent out the other, planning to use the rent to take, care of taxes, insurance and upkeep on both houses and the heat bill in the house .we occupy. "My husband's retirement income will be $92. In three years I will be eligible for Social Security of $74 a month. We have a new car that is paid for, paid-up life insurance, and a paid- up cemetery plot. "The house -we will occupy is not in a our cost fashionable, section of living . will not clothing and we need. "Therefore, heavy. I have figured that $50 a week ' will take care of food, what other things if we take $110 a month from our savings until my own Social Security starts, we can do fine for three years. At that point, with our two incomes totaling $166 a month, we will see what is best to do. "Is our financing sound? Can we make it?" The answer to this couple is that they can make it. Bui; their financing is not too sound, and their 'arithmetic is weak, as it often is with people now approaching retirement. The couple ,as a matter of fact, is quite wealthy. There are several ways they could manage a safe retirement. One way would be this: Take '$17,000 of the $21,000 savings, and invest it at 4% per cent (through a reputable investment broker or in a savings and loan association). This would return $765 a year or about $6'* a month. When added to the husband's $92, it would give $155 a month. The wife says they can live on $50 a week. That means $2,600 a year or $217 a month—$62 a month more than the $155 income. So, out of the $4,000 they have left over from the savings, they should draw $62 a month, which would total $744 a year or $2,232 in the three years before the wife's Social Security starts. Meanwhile, there would be over $1,700 left put of the $4,000 for emergencies. When the wife's Social Security starts, (hat $74 a month plus the $92,, plus the $063 should make everything lovely . . . with no more withdrawals from the savings. There could come a day of re- figuring on this plan. An expensive illness by either the husband or wife could wreck everything. To avoid that, the couple should take out some type of disaster medical insurance, maybe a policy with a deductible clause for minor illness. Some form of Government medical care for people in their 60's seems on the way, but is-not here yet. The death of the husband ,and the loss of.his $92 income also could bring problems. The wife would have left only the $63 from investments and her $74 Social Security, for a total of $137 a month—hardly-enough even with two houses. The husband can help [his situation by going to his life insurance company and arranging for his policy to pay his widow an annuity for life. The size of the annuity would depend on the face value of lh« policy, but even $20 or $25 a month from this source would see her through. Coming down to essentials in retirement, as this couple is prepared to do, usually proves to be a happier Ife than most people think it could ever be. Material possessions Jnd luxuries are nice. So are the simpler (lungs when you get to 'oiow them. (COPYRIGHT 1962, GENERAL FEATURES CORP.) Ever season cooked beets with a dash of tarragon vinegar?
