Clutter Makes Life Meaningful By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) — I cannot understand people who like to throw things away. A friend of mine, as soon as he gets this week's issue of a magazine, immediately takes last week's issue and thrusts it into the incinerator, whether he has finished reading it. or not. Another friend, when he buys a new pair of shoes, has the habit of discarding an old pair. He follows the same policy with suits, neckties, hats and girl friends. When 1 ask him why, he says in surprise: "Why not? Who wants to clutter up his life?" Well, for cne, 1 do. 1 believe that clutter is one of Ihe few things that make life meaningful. It is my philosophy that when a person throws away anything that lias belonged to him, he is discarding his own immortality. One of the happiest men I ever met was a string collector. He wound it into a great ball several feet thick and put it on display outside a filling station lie ran in a small Kansas town. "People think 1'rn a bit odd," he said cheerfully. "But so far as I know, this is the second biggest ball ol this particular kind of spring in the whole wide world. "The only guy who has a bigger ball is getting pretty well up in years, and 1 think in time I'll beat him. Meanwhile folks who have heard about my ball of string corne from miles away to see how much it's grown, and while they're here they usually have me fill up their gas tanks, so it's good for business." So far I haven't become a specialist in saving like that string collector. 1 save just about everything—old friends, old enemies, old love letters, old menu cards, and old clothing. I still keep and wear a sweat shirt 1 bought in 1939. 1 still keep and wear an overcoat 1 bought in Canada in 1941. i still have one of the good luck combat boots 1 wore through the World War II and took later to Korea. The reason ! don't have both of them is that the other one was stolen from me by a housemaid in Tokyo who thought that, if one was missing, I'd leave the other behind. Well, I didn't. Now and then my daughter Tracy complains about the mounting debris in our apartment. "Dad," she says, "you can't save everything!" Why can't 1? I just jumble some of it together in a big paper box and put in storage in th c basement. I've got 22 boxes there now, and getting my 23rd one ready. "It's nothing but junk, Dad," says Tracy, who is neater than most teen-agers. Junk? Nonsense. That's nol junk—it's me. It's living history, a cross-section of one man's life. One of these days when Uncle Sam does his duty by me and puts me on the Social Security rolls, I'll move it all to a small house in the country and spend the rest of my years pawing through it and live again the world 1 once knew. MOSCOW MOD should lit right intu the teen-age fashion scene in any big city of I he i-iipitalisi West if l,'ub« Cheicshinova's outfit is any example. The 15-y c u r-old schoolgirl, spotted at a Moscow exhibition, made the black velvet jacket over white hell-bottom trousers costume herself.
