Here's A Notebook By THOMAS COLLINS Here, as the new year comes on, is a retirement notebook for anyone past 50 years old. It is condensed from the retirement experiences of people over the country in the last 12 months. It's not gospel—very little you read on retirement is. But it's a guide that may be valuable to you. 1. Take with a grain of salt everything told you by a person already retired. A man will retire to Hog Hollow, Ga., tell you it's .wonderful—when he wishes to Heaven he had never seen the place. He will -tell you he's too busy to do everything he wants to—when he's had' nothing to do but sit for four months. He will tell you he's getting along fine—when he 'can't pay the milk bill. And these are nice people, not bad ones. It seems to be an occupational disease of retirement" to color the facts. So use your own good judgment. 2. Be satisfied with 4 to 5 per cent return on any money you have to invest. Go hunting for more and you can lose your pants. 3. There is no good place for retirement. There is no bad place. V/here you are right now is probably as good as anywhere else. People, not climate, determine whether you'll be happy. 0£ course people look prettier under an orange tree than they do in a blizzard, and I don't thintf you can kid yourself about that. Provided you will know somebody under an orange tree who will talk to you. 4. Traveling, which every 64- money, and go to your children for it, you may find—if you're an average parent—that it's like getting gold pieces out of a village pump. Again, it's the order of things in this atomic age. 6. A retired' couple can live in Arizona, California, or Florida on an income of 5200 a month. Not too well, but adequately. In a small, unpublished town an income of $200 a month carries prestige with it. 7. A person, particularly a man, feels a loss of prestige and a loss of financial security when he retires. He also feels 'the loss of a big brother. A company can, and does, throw its weight around for more than a handful of idle retired people who -were happy. I have not seen a single busy retired person who wasn't. 11: Retired people who hold 'to their home, to live in or to rent, fare better . . . Husbands who fail to teach their wives the facts of life about insurance, investments, and Social' Security before they retire are foolish . . . Wives who don't dedicate their major efforts to keeping their retired -husbands healthy are foolish. There are too many widows around.. 12. Why don't you take next week to bring the family Bible up to date . . . with births, deaths, marriages, etc.? And put in a few notes about your honors in business.

Make a will. It's a bother. It may cost you up to S50 or so. But it 'can keep your heirs from pulling hair. 9. America is pretty well standardized now. You get the same brand of coffee everywhere. At about the same, price. Arkansas seems the most economical place in the U.S. to live, but you may have to make the coffee at a well. Mexico is economical, and alluring. But you'd be a foreigner. 10. I. have seen, during 1957, about half a dozen people making more than $1,000 a month in businesses entirely alien to the one they retired from. I have not seen NEA Calls On US For School Aid ' By HERMAN "B. ALLEN WASHINGTON Iff)—The National Education Assri. called on the federal government here to start an edu'catipnal support program of indefinite length which would reach a cost of at least $100 per school-age child per year within five years. The program would cost $25 per child the first year, a total of about a billion dollars. In the fifth year, with -the school-age population rising, it would cost about 4Vz billion dollars all told. The program, drawn up by the NEA's legislative commission, also proposes: 1. College scholarships for at least 20,000 high school graduates each-year — a total of 80,000 in four years. 2. At least 5,000 fellowships per year for university graduate study —15,000 in three years. 3. At least 25 million dollars a year for expansion of services of state education agencies in all fields, not alone in science and mathematics education or in testing and guidance. 4.

Women would not complain today, perhaps, if every man. in the world resembled Charles Boyer, Clark Gable, John Wayne or Cary Grant, .monotonous as it could become.

A statement prepared by the legislative. commission suggested scholarship awards might average $1,200 per year to start and fellowships $3,000 per year. This would make the total starting cost about 40 million dollars annually, rising toa bout 160 million in four years. head? Horrors! Mirror breaking would be ear shattering. What about the female of the species? There are some indications that women are beginning to look alike. They dye their hair in conforming shades, some use the same makeup. But no woman want* to be found dead looking like any other woman. 'You ran't get wome nto agree on anything, anyway, much less in the matter of beauty and fashion. Sometimes they follow fashion blindly, sometimes they disagree violently, as witness, the 1957 slipcover for the female carcass—the gunnysack. /Some do, some don't like it. i Men may hope that the female looks trend takes a Marilyn Monroe turn, although it could become too much of a good thirg, like Mom's apple pie. Then too, by that time, we may have Martian ladies making inroads on sex appeal standards of Earth men. Who •knows—we-may find our men really like four-lipped girls. Or maybe Martian ladies will be the silent, button-lipped type American men have admired through the years —greater competition no Earthen, lady could have. The suspicion is that men will control this looks and image deal. Male scientists running rampant with slide rule and advanced calculus in their noggins may classi- fy us by type. Dark haired, long nosed, small mouth types, may be XYZ's who may marry only dark-haired, short nosed,' large mouth types, classified XNS. These types may marry, and their offspring become YNS, perhaps .the ideal type. Or if scientists prefer blondes when we get on this look-alike kick, two brunettes may not be able to meet under an apple tree without a license. That way we could all wind up looking alike in no time at all.
