LOGANSPORT, INDIANA SUNDAY, DECEMBER 22. 19ST n GOLDEN Are You Over 50? .., 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 evei-ything told you by a persoji 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. Where you are right now is probably as good as anywhere else. People, not climate, determine whether you'll be happy. Of course people look prettier under an orange tree than they do in a blizzard, and I don't think you can hid yourself about that. Provided you will know somebody under an orange tree who will talk to you,' 4. Traveling, which every 64- year-old dreams of, is great sport for six weeks after retirement. But whether by car, plane, train, bus, ship or oxcart, it's for the birds after that. 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 $200 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 In a small, unpublished town an income of $200 a month carries prestige with it. 7.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 an employee occasionally. It is less inclined to do it for a pensioner. So any connection you can maintain with your company that is official, even if it brings no money, 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 busi ness. Some descendant, some fu lure day, will love you for it. (COPYRIGHT 1957, GENERAL FEATURE CORP.) 5 Your children will not pay is always wise.

It's a bother. It may cost you up to $50 or so. But it car; keep your heirs from pulling hair. 9. America is pretty well standardized now. You get th« 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.

ALLEN WASHINGTON TO—The Nation al Education Assn. called on the federal government here to start an educational support pro gram 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 4% 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.

If we could stick around until the year 2500, we'd find out if the quote attributed to Tokyo educator Dr. Vibul Thamavit comes true—-"Everyone in the world will look alike" 600 or so years from now. .

Continuation of such federal activities as vocational education, library services and school lunches until it can be demonstrated that the need be met from other resources. 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.

But no woman want* to be found dead' looking like any other woman. 'You can'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. , Men may hope that the female looks trend takes a Marilyn Monroe turn, although it could become too much of a good thing, 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.
