SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 17,1957 THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPQRT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA He Retired Once— And Once Was Enough BL BEULAH STOWE "I was retired once—for eight months. But I couldn't stand it," said Mr. H. T., 50, an ad agency vice president. Mr. T. retired at 49, with enough money to live happily ever after. He and his wife went to the West Coast to find their personal-dreamland. They found the climate, the flowers and the leisure time they wanted. But Mr. T. missed one thing for which he found no satisfactory substitute: work. He came back home and sold himself and a well-packaged idea to a national advertiser, pocketed the contract and associated himself with another advertising agency as a vice president. Why didn't he like retirement? "No prizes, no competition, no excitement," he sums it up. Can he retire again—successfully—when he's 65? "Sure I can," says Mr. T. "That's 15 years from now. I may get tired of running before that. My wife and I both feel w e have profited from our trial run. We'll know what we're doing.and we'll be ready for it. I think I'll buy into a small business in some California town and build it into something big." And if everyone like Mr. T., could retire tor eight months between the age s of 49-50 and then recoup—it might be easier to retire successfully at age 65. * * * Selling on the road, traditionally a young man's game, has possibilities for the man past 65, says Mr. Joseph Cullen. After his retirement from a -position with a large utility company he found a job with an electrical supply company, selling to retailers over a six-state area. Mr. Cullen drives his own car on. his selling trips, and Mrs. Cullen goes along. No children at home to worry about—they're all grown. And while Mr. Cullen sells, Mrs. Cullen suf veys the town with an eye to chosing a permanent homa. * # * - Q—"My husband and I are planning to build a small house, and since we are in our GO'S, we want it to be on one floor. What other features should we watch out for, in making our plans? We ar e both in good health, as yet."—A.R.S. A—Location within walking distance of church, stores, and community center is of primary importance to older people. Few steps to climb, easy maintenance inside and out, wall plugs at a level where you can reach them without stooping, floors that are not slippery, and a kitchen that's designed to put supplies and utensils at arm level— with no reaching up and no crawling into—will be practical. A bathroom with a low tub that's easy to step into and firm handles installed in the wall will add safety. Railings or banisters should be part ol any stairway, inside or out.

How To Decide It By THOMAS COLLINS J "How do you decide," a businessman wants to know, j "whether to stay where you are or move away when you i retire?" . His name'is Robert J.

It's just the nature of people. So, taking your own counsel, apply the following eight points to your circumstances. And you'll come up with an answer. FOUR REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD MOVE: 1. If your friends and social life are tied up with your business and your job, and you want to stay because you don't want to lose them, move. You can't keep them after you retire. They'll rush on in their same busy way, and you.will watch from the sidelines. And you may grow bitter. 2. If you cannot maintain a standard of living your friends expect, move. You can't be apologizing the rest of your life for your shiny pants and old car, or for declining invitations to see shows and play golf. 3. If the loss of your position 1 , the importance and prestige that went with it are going to gnaw away at your pride, move. There are a thousand little towns that still think a city man with a pension is important. 4. If you just want fo, move. The Lord knows you've 'earned it by staying alive and working until 65. It's a reward that's yours for the taking. FOUR REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD NOT MOVE: 1. Friends will not be easy to Story of Christ will be worked over -and played with for weeks before. Christmas. Plan some other decorations for the house and put them up as the children work on them. Try to add a few new items every day or so. Make a big batch of Christmas cookies. Cut them in interesting shapes and decorate them with bright colored sugar. These can be stored until needed, and make wonderful gifts for visiting children during Christmas week, or even before. Perhaps some of the children would like to send a fancy decorated cooky as a Christmas card to a special friend. Christinas Cards Christmas cards can be planned well before Christmas. As much as you can, interest the children in making their own cards. If you have kept those that were sent to you last year many of them will supply pictures which the children can cut out and paste on cards or colored paper. When children buy their cards let them mekc their own selections, deciding which cards goes to which person. Let them sign their own names and stamp the] envelopes. Keep the children Interested in doing things for Christmas, doing things for the family, for their friends and taking part in community plans. Their interest in others helps to keep down the pitch of excitement in what is being done for them and it also helps to give them a real feeling of lov« and concern for others. This, much more than receiving, is what we want our youngsters to feel about Christmas, (ffl make in a strange placei Cities in Arizona, California and Florida will try to help you.

A way of life, 65 years in the making, goes when you go. And not to the same place, j Whatever you decide, by best advice to you—apart from making up your OWN mind—is to hedge on your bet. If you decide to stay,! travel far and wide for a few months. If you decide to move, rent—don't sell—your house and possessions for at least a year.
