It's a habit they somehow acquire in early years and by the time old age creeps up they are wallowing in a sea of possessions of dubious value. Thus comes to mind because I recently served as executor for an elderly widow who never threw or gave anything away. If every item had been counted I think there would have been 20,000 "things" in her house. The attic had a narrow passageway through clutter that included discarded furniture, trunks of old clothes that hadn't been worn in decades, bundles of faded draperies, boxes of old china and glassware, and crates of receipts and boo'ks. And every room in the house was crammed with furnishings she had inherit' ed from two sets of relatives.

Wheat Lands Motel. —IGtf By SAM DAWSON AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP) — Money is getting tighter and short-term interest rates are rising. At the same time, Americans are increasing their instalment debt to new heights and banks and other lcnder s are competing hard for new outlets for thei r cash on hand. The opposing trends are alarming some on both sides of the credit fence. The debate over cheap money vs. dear—never entirely stilled—is due to break out loudly again. The spurt in the cost of short- term borrowing i s reflected in the rise this week in the U.S. Treasury's 91-day bills' yield to 3.335 per cent, highest since May 26, 1960. The money managers had planned it that way. They recently raised from 3 per cent to 3.5 per cent the discount rate which member banks are charged to borrow from the Federal Reserve banks. The aim is to put yields so high that idle dollars will stay in this country instead of flowing abroad to upset further our international payments, with resulting strain on the dollar and on our gold reserves. . Some feel the money managers are also convinced that credit has been too easy. The conservatives cite the rise of instalment credit outstanding to more than $50 billion, due FOR SALE OR TRADE: 1959 Chevrolet Impala sport coupe.

Prinple 4 Meat Bargains Broaden at Mart By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Meat bargains are broadening at supermarkets, with pork cuts and lamb attracting special attention. Pork marketing has picked up sharply from it s seasonal low and prices have accordingly taken a drop. Midwestern markets report a wide range of bargains, including chops and spare ribs. In the Northeast, smoked hams are a star. On the West Coast, Pork loins are off as much as 5 cents a pound in some California markets. Most regions offer lamb cuts at attractive prices, with Midwestern tags on leg roasts and shoulder and rib chops now at springtime lows. In the New York area, one national chain is featuring leg of lamb at 49 cents a pound. Beef prices are also competitive, with marketing running about 10 per cent higher than a year ago. Best buys run in the roast categories, but many shops also are pushing steaks. Broiler marketings have passed their peak but broilers still are an economical main course. Canned tuna fish, fresh scallops' and peanut butter are other protein features. Vegetable counters continue to sparkle with entreating variety. Best buys nationally include green beans, potatoes, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, squash, cabbage, beets, topped carrots, sweet cdrn, lettuce, onions and peppers. Cantaloupes are priced the lowest they've been in years 'n some markets and there's a wide selection of other fruits. Plums, grapes, peaches, watermelons, blueberries, limes and pears are among the stars. Historical Site To Be Dedicated WELLINGTON, Kan. (AP) Governors and highway officials of Kansas and Oklahoma are being invit«i to the dedication of an historical marker Sept. 9 at the Wellington Service area of the Kansas Turnpike. The marker's central theme will be the Chisholm cattle trail which ran parallel to and just west of the Kansas Turnpike and the connecting Oklahoma Express w a y. The famed old trail, which had it s P ea k business following the Civil War, started just west of Oklahoma City and ended at Wichita. Also featured on th e marker will be the 1889 Cherokee Strip opening into Oklahoma territory from Arkansas City, Caldwell, and oilier border communities in Kansas. ! Anoint s for Fi-titioneis ATTEST: I M. C. SchriUer Probate Judge The bronze tablet was prepared jointly by the Kansas Historical Society and the Kansas Turnpike Authority. largely to the near record sales of aulos and increased purchasing of big ticket appliances on time. They also note that some banks have been stretching the tim c in which auto loans can be repaid, and charge that some financial institutions have b^en lending money on mortgages where the credit risk was higher than they would have approved awhile back. Increased use of credit by stock speculators also is charged. Conservative financial circles always shudder when credit standards are being relaxed. But those who see economic growth as today's main goal disagree. They want even easier money. They argue that cheaper short- term money aids smaller businessmen in their da'y-to-day activities. They contend that longer term borrowing- must be easy and cheap if business is to expand and thus create new job s for the unemployed, a sizable group that threatens to increase. Easier money advocates also wants more homes built with financing readily available at terms that middle and lower income families can afford. And the huge instalment debt has been a bulwark of many consumer industries that otherwise would see their sales dwindle. HEALTH CAPSULES l»y Michael A.

It is nor intended to be of a diagnostic nature. I asked her son and heir what he was going to do with it all. He said, "I'll keep a chair or two for sentimental reasons, sell whatever a secondhand dealer will buy, and burn what's left." Very often, the tendency to hoard and accumulate signals a mental aberration. Or, it may simply signals a lack of generosity toward others; an exaggerated sense of frugality or foresight which causes one to say, "I'd better hang on to it, for I might need it someday." It's possible that these people enjoy squirreling away every buttonhook, blouse, book, or bedpost which has outlived its usefulness. But I doubt it. I suspect they would receive more pleasure disposing of things which are no longer needed, and in the process clearing their minds of the confusion which stems from living amid a rummage of possessions. Semantlcists have noted that the prefix "sen" as used in senior and seniority gives a favorable picture of maturity. It is complimentary to be considered a senior vice president, or to have seniority over someone else, or to be a senior citizen. The words senate- and senator stimulate equally stolid and favorable responses. Yet this same prefix contributes no dignity to the word senile. Webster defines this word to mean, "Of, pertaining to, exhibiting, or characteristic of old age" and affixes 'no unfavorable meaning to the world. Yet society has chosen to cloak the word senile with interferences of mental incompetence. It is only with the word senility that Webster suggests mental impairment defining the word to mean "Old age or its physical and mental infirmity." I don't know who's the champion geriatric visitor, but I'm ready to pin the blue ribbon on Mrs. Grace E. Bender of Jamestown, New York. She's ,93 years old and last year visted 1,314 persons. Seems she carries a notebook in her purse and whenever she drops in to visit with someone she enters their name and the date. When I called her the other day she said, "When you get old you can sit at home and feel sorry for yourself. Or you can visit the sick, the shut-ins, and the lonely. I don't stop for race, creed, or color. Soon these people you visit are your friends and look forward to your coming. One little old lady in a nursing home told me, "They keep me warm, clean, and well-fed. But it doesn't mean a thing if nobody comes to see me." If you would like a booklet "Things Churches Can Do for Older People" write to this column in care of Garden City Telegram enclosing a stamped, self- addressed envelope and ten cents to cover handling costs.
