Life Begins at Forty All Persons Have Different Strength, Resistance Levels By ROBERT PETERSON Q. "How do you account for the fact at 70 I'm never sick and am strong as a bull. But my wife who's the same age is sickly and in bed half the time?" A. We're all different based on inherited genes which determine our strength levels and resistance to disease. Of course, attitudes and emotions play a great role in health, too. Anxieties and* insufficient work, interests and exercise may bring on frailty and chronic illness. You may be strong as a bull, but in most families It's the oilier way around. As shown by statistics, women on the average have greater inherent strength than men, arc more resistant to diseases, and outlive their husbands by nearly six years. Q. "Last week I took mother to a nice restaurant on her 75th birthday and she shocked me by putting her leftover steak into a plastic bag she carries in her purse. She said she saw no reason for lotting good food go to waste, She's not rich, but she's not so poor that slw> has to Give your whole family filch leftovers. Do you blame me for being annoyed?" A. Maybe tht etiquette authorities won't approve, but it seems to me that any thrifty soul is justified in taking home leftover stenk from a restaurant — provided he does it discretely — pro- in such a way that others don't notice and aren't offended. Younger people tend to be sensitive about such things and embarrassed by any departure; from standard manners, whereas older people are more realistic. Q. "Six months ago I spent $100 enolling for an oil painting course and am very discouraged. The teacher assured me anyone can paint, but my granddaughter at ten can do better than the dozen landscapes I've produced. When the school held a public show, most pupils sold at least one painting. But I didn't get a bid even though mine were priced at only five dollars each." A. Maybe you lack artistic talent. Ikit I suspect your problem is impatience. No one who's been painting only six months should expect buyc'l; to be snapping up his paintings. Be persistent and work hare! at the principles you have been taught. And stop com- pairing yourself with ten-year olds who may have greater natural gifts than yours. Anyone Page 12 Ganlnn City Telegram Tuesday, August 27, 1963 can learn to paint well — provided he is willing to study and practice. Q. "I'm sick of all this baloney about how lucky old people are to be alive. I'm 72 with arthritis bad in one ' e g, my wife gone, and no family. What's so wonderful about living?" A. There's only one alternative to life, so unless we want to pass on before our time, our best bet is to make the best of things. Here are three suggestions. First see if you haven't some talents or interests that could be developed and 'Which might prove a source of pleasure. Second, acquire a companionable dog for a pet. Third, join one or two senior citizen groups in your neghborhood, and if there is no such group get on the phone and round up some sexagenarans and septuagenarians and invite them over once a week.
