Usfaciion fa-m leisure than they did from work. Ours is a work-oriented society, with work the means of assuring success in our personal lives. "All our earlier educational training and experience has taught us very well ho* to work and earn a living, but has not necessarily shed a blinding light on how to enjoy life." Mrs. Dial says. She advises: "Well planned leisure should provide some time for work, some time for play, and some time that is free for just loafing if we want to. Too much unplanned and unoccupied free time can be terrible But. for goodness sake, don't feel that every minute of your leisure must be rigidly scheduled. That's no fun. either." The lesson. "How Avoid the Retirement Blahs." suggests several retirement activities: »· Second Career. Some folks retire from one career and are soon involved with another one. Spare lime activities such as refinishing antiques, writing short stories and articles, raising prize flowers and other hobbies can develop into small businesses. ·· Group Activities. If you have been too busy earning a living to have much time for social activities, now is the time lo remedy the situation. Do a liltle investigating and find out which groups are active in your own locality. Join these in which YOU feel at home. gners Show Fall Collections By Eugenia Sheppard NEW YORK-Bill Blass likes to please everybody, but in his new fall collection, seen" for the first time the other day in .1 crowded showroom, he is out to please himself. The result, is the blondest, handsomest, most independent group of clothes he has shown for a long time. Bill was a pioneer in the boy look for girls, but he softens the literal approach of many collections with yards of cashmere, his trademark sable, and flattering colors. The blazer is not news but the Blass 'versions are special-peach cashmere over gray flannel slacks, shadow plaid over a one-piece jumpsuit with a vest lop. burgundy velvet and lodcn cloth over silk prints. There arc more culottes and gaucho pants than skirls bul no knickers. Though the Blass collection is basically sporty, many of the items reappear in red or black satin for parly wear, favorites this season. Typical is the red satin coat over a black satin culotte dress. » Volutttf Work- You have special talents and skills you have perfected through the years. Don't let them rust away.
