Fun Is Less Expensive As a Person Crows Old By ROBERT PETERSON An old chestnut says, "V\\ n j s like insurance — the older you! get the more it costs." But don't! believe it. Add up the pros and oons and you'll find it's less expensive to have fun when you are old because by then you've got a better sense of values and gadgtry. You're no longer fascinated by the latest fashions, newest cars, hi-fi sets, posh restaurants, and other standard status sym- 3 Pkgs.

Instead, you awaken to tho refreshing fact that man's keenest delights derive from the basic comforts, health, observation of Nature, creative activities, and camaraderie wih a few cpn- genial friends. And this kind of iellght costs little or nothing. * * * Speaking of friends, here's a note from a retired lawyer of 72 saying, "Last month I got to thinking about an old classmate with whom I've exchanged Yule cards but whom 1 hadn't seen in years. I began figuring the elapsed time since we'd been together and was astounded to find it had been 27 years. He lived only 150 miles away, so I phoned and said I was coming over to join him for lunch the next day. > "The following morning I got in my car, arrived at his place at noon, and we spent a wonderful three hours together. When I got home I told my wife the reunion was one of the pleasant- est incidents in my life. He I tvrote me a day or so later expressing similar sentiments. Today I picked up the paper and read that he had passed on. That's life. We shouldn't wait too long to enjoy the friendships with which we are blessed." Fin e letter Probably we all have friends or acquaintances living just a few hours away whom we profess to cherish but whom we haven't bothered to visit for years. Let's not wait too long. When it comes to annual vacations, it's my observation that women prefer a lengthy vacation — going to one place and staying put. Men, on the other hand, prefer two or three shorter vacations — and enjoy moving around. It's probably because men are tied more rigidly to their occupations, and are less accustomed to using leisure time. We relish a short vacation which gives us a change of scene. But after five or six days we grow fidgety. We contemplate the work piling up back at the office or plant and yearn to get back in harness. , Last Fall I tried to get my wife to fly along with me on a four-day junket to Ireland. But she said it appalled her to think of going such a distance for s'Jch a short stay. So I went by myself and had a great time. She figured I must have been up to •^ame mischief when I returned home and reported that four days of intensive travel and new experiences gave me greater satisfaction -and refreshment than the four solid weeks we spent on our last vacation encamped at a ranch in the Big Horn Mountains. Says historian Arnold Toynbee: "The best time of life for traveling is when one is in one's 70's, It's thrilling to set eyes at last on some town, river, monument, or mountain that one has /tnown only from pictures and maps and . . . has been longing to see for perhaps 50 or 60 years. 1 ' REAL ESTATE AUCTION PROPERTY OF MRS.

Residents of Kingfisher, Okla., indicated last month that, they didn't want a new post office. A. B. Heiligman, assistant regional postal director, said Monday Rep. Robert Dole, R-Kan., had written the Post Office listing .several objections apparently sent by residents of the First District. Dole said residents indicate that Wilson has several vacant buildings and. that a new post office would mean another vacant build- in,?. Heiligman said postal officials reassessed th« Wilson situation and found that none of the existing buildings could be remodeled lo lit specifications. Economic Rise Expected In Business World Soon By Sim Dawion AP Builneti N«wi Analyit NJBW YORK (AIM—SljminR of the nuclear test ban treaty may give some defense industries pause but could mean stepped up activities in others. So many strong spots are reported elsewhere that the business world seems largely expectant of an increased, if moderate, gain in the total economy after Labor Day. The threaty still has n long road to go in the U.S. Senate. And the skepticism expressed by many Americans as to the reliability of Russian promises could assure increased spcnling in forms of defense untouched by the treaty—to be ready just in case, and to meet pressure in other form s of the cold war. Total disarmament — with its cancellation of defense orders— isn't a factor yet In any but the most long-rnnge economic planning. Defense Department appropriations aren't involved in any important degree, at least at present. Rising government spending as a whole, however, is a sure thing. Corporation economists ns n whole, are hountlng on t.hl s us one of the factors sure to bolster the economy In coming months, The spending is going up at state and local levels as well n« federal—as many taxpayers are well aware. Even more Important Is the continuing large outpourings from consumers' purses and a moderate, but reassuring, rise in business spending for new equipment and plants. Such outlays by business In re- dends, as the current reports of cent years are now paying rilvl- increased profits show. Th» new equipment Is turning out more goods per man hour, thu cutting production costs faster than wage scales have been rising. Thanks largely to the high rate of auto sales, consumers have been increasing their total of In- stnlment AM. Some economists worry about, the stretching of payment' periods in some areas, but most consider the credit gains on a firm basis.
