July 13, 1975 S* * *«» V*r*mii» --- Otherwise.. Tom Fesperman River Much Colder Than the Future. . Edward Die is 79. He lives and has his being in Parkersburg, W.Va. One day not long ago he let his mind wander back and forth, sizing up things that had happened and things that hadn't. He decided he had run plumb out of iuture. So he went to the Belpre Bridge over the Ohio River, climbed up on the railing, looked down 80 feet to the water, and threw himself overboard. It was a better dive than he had meant to make. He cut into the water too cleanly. Nothing broke. And he rose to the surface, surrounded by the present, still facing the future downstream. Some people with good intentions pulled him out. "I'm never going to do that again," he said. "That water's too damned cold." It's a lesson. The river is colder than the future. I'M ALWAYS picking up lessons like that from our elders. They make me feel less fearful, in the highly unlikely event I ever get old. Henry M. Wriston is 85. He used to be president of Brown University. He has wisdom to share about how you need to prepare to shift gears, when you're no longer young. You might wake up one day and find the old job isn't there. Stay off the bridge. The world doesn't end at bridges. "Years ago," he says, "I made a study of careers. To my astonishment I found most successful men changed their occupations in middle life." When Hoyt Catlin of New Canaan, Conn., was 65, he and his wife visited England and saw some cubes of potting soil containing vegetable and flower seeds. He came home and started his own company, Fertl Inc. He's 85 now. Fertl is a multimillion-dollar business. The Barpee people bought it from him, but kept him on to run it. There are 16 employes,, all in their 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s. This has advantages. There's no hank- pank at coffee break. A MAN OUGHT to stay active, I learn, but not get too frisky. Osro Fairchild of Maumee, Ohio, is 99. He's been driving cars for 62 years, not a single ticket. Then the other day he tippy-toed through a red light and some kid cop got him. The judge gave him down-the-country, told him he'd better watch it, fellow. I'm inspired by all this hustle, but it can go too far. I'm worried about Anna Nachreiner of Vallejo, Calif. She's 67. She got restless. She converted her '62 Chevy sedan to stock-car racing, and is out there zipping around Vallejo Speedway, really hitting it on the straights. She handles fine. But you can never tell about some of these young damfools, who don't have a lick of sense about coming out of a curve. They drive as if the future were a warm river.

(AF) - The nation's ice cream industry says business is booming as economic hardtimes send millions of Americans in search of a cheap way to lick inflation. Industry spokesmen say per capita consumption of ice cream is up for the first time in many years - an average of almost 15 quarts a year per peson - and they credit the economy for it. "With food in restaurants and other kinds of entertainment so high, people can't afford to take the family out," says William Manseau, vice president of the Carvel ice cream chain. "But they can come to the ice cream store for a treat, enjoy themselves and have dessert and still spend less than $5." A Miami psychologist says the search for a less expensive form of entertainment is not the whole reason why people are eating more ice cream in bad times. "We're looking for things that are sim- pie and give us pleasure. We regress to (jity fc l tO Utter being kids," said psychologist Dr. Ronald r j _ Tikofsky. adding that many people are Adult 3Wlm Uiass "trying to recapture the American home life style before things run away from them. ; "It's the same reason movie attendance is going up. We're looking for something satisfying, yet relatively inexpensive," he said. i ram Koooery; Margrave, uara Reeve; Hearon, Hannah's House; Lessing, The Memoirs of a Survivor; Little Parthian Shot; Lorenzo, Heart-Of-Snowbird; Matlow I Loved You Wednsday; Moore, The Great Victorian Collection; Pitts, This City Is ours; Weld, Engagement; Winthrop, A Little Demonstration of Affection.
