Citizen Tells From Danzig * European Retirement Nice But It Also Involves Risk BL BEULAH STOWE 1 fin in • i *• i TI 1 1 1 ii ii H Mr. B. 'of Akron, Ohio, has a pension of $175 a month. He- and his wife are getting by, living carefully. But in West Germany, where they have relatives, they would be able to live well on much less than $175. The B's visited their brothers and sisters in Germany last year. They both liked the country and the people. Mrs. B. wants to live there permanently, as their relatives urge 'them to do. They, could rent a "nice" apartment, Mr,.B. says, and live comfortably on about 5100 a month. Should they do it? _ . Mr. B. is 75. He has been in the United States for 52 years and his wife has been here for 35 years. . . . "We are set in the American way of life," says Mr. B., and we like it very much. I think changing to a new life at my age might prove quite a problem. But living gets more expensive here and the pension does not increase." ' . . - . The B's and other retired people who. consider moving to foreign shores 'where living costs are kinder to a- fixed income should consider these four points: . . 1 Your chance;; of coming back, at age 75, are slight. This move, if you make it, will take you to the place where you will end your may like the -life you have right here better than you 1 realize. It's familiar and it's safe and it is filled with many ties whether or not you have- members of your family nearby. ' -. 3 You may be more patriotic than you think. You might spend the rest of your life trying to explain to the people .in your chosen country just how good things were back in the United States.

DETROIT—Michigan teen-agers who want to drive are put through a tough course in proper motor- ling. Michigan is the first and only state in the nation where young people under 18 are required to take a driver's training course before they may obtain a driver's license. The state's schools have set out to teach 70,000 students what it means to be an adult behind the wheel. Those who learned to drive on back country roads after 10 minutes of instruction from an impatient parent may wonder what driving teachers find to occupy 42 hours of class time. Only 12 hours are spent actually behind the wheel. But after a suitable time of verbal dissection of the auto in class and hours spent studying charts and graphs, a student finds himself at the wheel. At some schools he does his driving on a range on the school grounds. All Phases Where most schools have rolling lawns and carefully trimmed hedges, at least six schools in the Detroit area have curving roadways —complete with stop light, stop signs, yellow lines for parallel parking- practice and a concrete maj(>r studio celMoid for nes.

PH. 4th at Broadway Phone 3131 The indoor activity embraces the history, ' physiology, psychology, anatomy, economics and sociology of man and the automobile. Driving instructor David Russell, 34-year-old former history teacher, listed auto maintenance,- insurance expense and liability problems, traffic regulations, courtesy, vision and depth preceprlon, money-saving hints and map reading as just a few of the topics discussed in his classes.

The revolutionary method w&Ig'hs cars without stopping, witching or uncoupling them. "This" is the .biggest advance in ailroading since .the diesel locomotive," says-'Samuel H. Leven- on of Cincinnati,, president of the nternational Railroads' Weighing Corp., Indianapolis. The firm developed the system wifti the 'cooperation, of the Monon Railroad.' The method' utilizes special tracks which'break, the bind between couplers by causing the weighed car to rise a few nches higher than ! the railroad )ed.- Top railroad and business .executives at the demonstration were told.-the system will increase the speed of rail shipments by 7.4 per cent and put the equivalent, of 25,000 new railroad cars into service as well as increase rail earnings _n excess of a quarter of a billion dollars annually. Levenson said it will enable railroads' to compete with trucks on more equal terms, especially on short hauls. At present most weighing operations require every car to be detached from its .train, then placed on the scale alone or coasted over the scale at a predetermined speed. Auto Agency Sold to J.D.
