PAGE TWO THE PHAROS-TKIBUNE anfl 10GANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT. INDIANA SUNDAY, JANUARY 2«, 19* THE GOLDEN YEARS An Executive Finds A New Life At62 This is one for the boss. It is the retirement story of a man who would be called an executive, if executive weren't becoming an ugly word. It is being told because an increasing number of men at management level are running into bad messes in retirement . .. . and because $100 a week guys shouldn't think they have all the problems. The man retired two years ago at age 62. His name, to a few intimates in business, was "Governor." He thinks it's best to leave it at that. His story: "I was with a large retail merchandising outfit and had about forty people under me. It was rough, but probably no more so than any similar merchandising job. And like most good jobs, it was uncertain — next month I could be kicked out the back door or promoted to vice president. "I lived the job, eating, sleeping and drinking problems ..." He made up his mind over a period of months that life could be sweeter. His wife agreed. He began quietly to search for a "retirement job" — in the business he knew best, in a small city, and in an area not too far from southern Indiana, where he was born. He found one, as assistant to the president of what he calls "a dry goods and notions chain." His pay So my wife and I gambled. We had $18,000 in our house and a couple of dollars here and there. I had nothing else, and my pension and Social Security couldn't be had until 65. We figured the money from the house would give us an easy $5,000 a year until the pension and Social Security started. I think more executives at 62 ought to use a house for this purpose. After all, you can't frame it. "2. I learned a man should not go back to his hometown after retirement. I wanted to. But I decided that unless the family name is still important, or unless you was a straight $4,800 a year. I have impressive'money, you look "I've had it for two years now. i like a has-been. I settled for near I'm happy with it. And I've learned j by. a few secrets about executive re : [ "3. I realized by simple logic tirement: Must Have Nerve that once I retired from the good jjob, I had to get out of town. I "I. You've got to have a little i would always be running into .nerve. I didn't know my new job, people who thought I had conked wouldn't turn my stomach, or that; out. There would be no occasion I wouldn't be fired in six weeks, for them to ask or for me to tell— Rewarding Program: 'MD International' By WILLIAM EWALD United Press Staff Correspondent •tiTT-iitr vrvD V 1 TTiT^l ""Mr") Ttvfnr iN-CiVV iLHviS. v UrJ — iviu i niter- national," presented on NBC-TV Thursday night, was pretty strong medicine. And pretty rewarding medicine. Filmed over a period of 79 days at such stops as Korea, Hong Kong, Burma, Nepal, Lebanon, Ethiopia and India, "M>D International" was a one-hour survey (minus a painless commercial) of American doctors at work. I watched it twice (once last week at a preview) and found it engrossing both times around. I guess the answer lies in a happy combination of things: a camera •with a feeling for composition and the essentials of a shot; a clean narration free of the tired slush that gums up so many TV documentaries; and what seemed to be a sense of dedication to the job at hand. It was' a tasty example of honesty and intelligence at work behind the camera eye. And that means a low bow to David Lowe •who produced and directed it. Gamey for the Squeamish Some of it, I imagine, was fairly gamcy for the ssueamish— an operation upon a heart, another upon an eye with a brutally close work was allabout. shot of the lens being removed, a small girl with her back deformed by tuberculosis of the bone, a shot of a leg stump. But there was never any feel- Ing that this sort of material was being injected into the program for sensation's sake. . All of it seemed a legitimatevisual explanation of just what each doctor's work was all about. There wera, I would ,,ay, only two dull moments during the show. Both of them took place when the camera left the urena of the bedside. One was a brief and dull interview between Dr. Charles Malik, Lebanon's foreign minister, and a young girl doctor. The other was a talk by Ethiopia's emperor, Haile Selassie, in his native language. However, this is carping. "MD International" was a shining and humane document. I'm sure NBC- TV will repeat it. Vacation from Murder OBS-TV's "Climax" took a vacation from murder and mayhem Thursday night and unboxed a trim one-hour drama, "Sound of the Moon." The play starred Vera Miles, a neat, blonde package, in the role of an airline stewardess who is going deaf. Miss Miles' despair in the face- of her ailment and her final acceptance of it was worked out pretty believably. And for a change, "Climax" forewent a crashing, splashing climax. Royal Dano and Hoagy Carmichael turned in creditable performances, along with Miss Miles. The channel swim: OBS-TV's next big Dupont spec is beginning to look like "The Prisoner of Zenda" — the date is in May. . . NBC-TV's "Omnibus" liad to cut out 26 minutes of new routines from its "Suburban Revue" last week because they couldn't coax star Bert Lahr into using the -new material. That's why "Suburban Revue" was so strangely un-suburban. Susan Douglas, star of OPS-TV's "Guiding Light," is expecting her third little light in July. . .according to the latest Nielsen survey, the highest rated daytime show on the air is ABC-TV's "Woody Woodpecker." The mighty have fallen dep't: Elvis Presley finished 20th in a field of 21 for male vocalist honors in "Playboy" magazine's 1958 poll. Terry O'Sullivan, who left CBS-TV's soap, "Search for Tomorrow," two years ago to concentrate on nighttime TV drama roles, returns to the daytime show Jan. 30 as leading man again. And Walter Brennan of ABC- TV's "The Real McCoys" reports his first case of stage fright when he turned singer recently to record the theme song of his show. "When I looked at the mike and knew I had to sing," says Brennan, "I felt as trapped as a cow in the hands of a frost-bitten farmer." they would just add two and two, and be 'considerate.' Also I had to get a lowered standard of living out o£ sight of neighbors and friends who had grown accustomed to more. "4.1 made one mistake an executive is a fool to make. I didn't set the stage for one of my own subordinates to take my job. He would have been my friend for life, extolled my virtues, sold me things at cost, let me use his typewriter, hide in his rest room, and sleep in his office. An outsider was brought in, and I've been a jerk in the place ever since. Life Became A Narcotic "5. I made another mistake in letting big-town executive life become a narcotic—I should have quit it at 55. Executive lite isn't living. It's striving, maneuvering, and hurrying,. with some junkets, some luncheons, some speeches and few material rewards to sweeten it. If it weren't for male vanity, the whole system would collapse. "6. An executive has contacts. He's an executive because he has some sense. He can get a retirement job with a great deal more ease than anybody else. He should always seek it with a smaller firm or in a smallef town. But he must get the new job while he still has the old. If he"s out of a job, he's a bigger bum than a bum. "7. I discovered it was wise to find a retirement job where there was no acute competition. With competition you are back in the same grind of beating somebody or beating last year. Without it, as I am now, you work six or eight hours a day, play golf a couple of afternoons a week, and leave the office at the office. I know that doesn't colonize the West, but at 62 I didn't want to colonize the West. "8. City men develop a stupid, blind snobbery toward smaller towns. What are you living for? To live, not to work. I belong to a country club here. I have position and prestige and know all the nice folks in town. On four times as much money I never could touch such satisfaction before."

(International) How You Con Keep Your Husband Alive BL BEULAH STOWE There are too many widows and too few couples, after 65. The most priceless possession a woman can have is a husband of her own- even if she doesn't like him very much. A husband is companionship, instead of lonliness. Belonging, instead of longing to belong. A husband is invitations out, a place in social affairs, more money and more pension, to most women. Practically speaking, a husband is worth taking good care of. And if a wife not only finds him useful, but loves him, life without lim is something she dares not contemplate. Here's how to keep this valuable man alive as long as possible: 1. Feed him wisely, but not too well. (He has probably never stayed home all day before he retired, and he may find the kitchen all too available.) Follow your doctor's advice. 2. Assure him that he is more important to you than any household obs which require unusual physical strength from him. A' man past D5 should not handle an extension ladder, re-roof his garage, or work at anything until exhaustion. Men who are accustomed to heavy ihysical labor may be exceptions to this general rule. 3. Share and share alike. You can spare him some of the lifting and moving jobs around the house .He can-spare you some of the cooking and home beautifying and gardening, thereby finding a new nterest in his home. 4. Respect his wishes. If he says he is too tired to go oiit, he's oo tired, If he says he thinks he needs a short nap, he needs a short nap. 5. Encourage him to do something—in hobbies, social service, in >usiness—which will maintain a keen interest in living. Q—"I am a widow, 64, and am entitled to Social Security benefits )oth because of my husband's past earnings, and because I am employed. I plan to retire next year. Can I get his benefits and mine, ;oo?" —A.L.C. A—No. Yon are entitled 'to receive whichever is larger of the two benefits, not both.
