Tuesday. July 2, 1963 Of Most Men By ItAL BdlhLtS NEW YORK <A3P)-You can tell how old A man is by tJie contents A bfrth certificate or a passport only gives his chronological age. frit What he Carrie in his pockets is a better index to his real age —how old he feels, If you turn his pockets inside out, you can also tell pretty well what his problems are, and the kind of hopes, fears and dreams he has. You can tell a lot about his personality. Tills index gets more accurate as a mart gets older. At the age of 10 months, it isn't worth a hoot as a fellow then is still wearing those wraparound loin clothes common to both sexes. But by the time he's 10, our little man's pockets have become a calendar of his being. They are stuffed with the trinkets and treasures of what is known as ft Phone ringing? "the crow age" of childhood. At 20 all of this wonderful baggage of boyhood is gone. His pockets now contain such items as a handkerchief with his initials on it, some cribbed notes for use in his next exam, a photo of his best girl, a little book list* ing the names and addresses of all the other girls who 6vev said hello to him, a pipe and tobacco pouch, the keys to his jalopy, 35 cents in hard cash, and a letter from his father saying if he wants more money he'll either have to earn it—or get better marks in college. At 35 his pockets show another great change. Now they hold an address book noting his business contacts, photos of his mate and their cubs, a half-empty cigarette pack, a note from the bank saying a payment is overdue on his last loan, a plastic five-year calendar presented to him by an insurance agent, a ballpoint pen, and $1.35 in change doled out to him that morning by his wife for lunch money. At 50 our man's pockets are stuffed as they haven't been since he was 10. But now what do we find? We find two or three pens, a pad on which to write memos to himself, children photos five credit of his grand- cards, two dozen cards of business acquaintances, a letter from an old friend Whether you're fixing formula, wielding a mop f or just plain taking it easy ... there's no nicer time to have your | £L *?

At 70 our man's pockets bulge no more. They contain a piece of string he thriftily picked up while strolling, and the wallet the boys at the office gave him when he retired at 65. The wallet holds an faded letter from the boss saying what a good job he did for the firm for 40 years, and a card saying whom to notify in case some day he doesn't make it back home from the park bench where he sits and watches the world go by. His pockets have come circle. full INTRQ STQTE TELEPHONE COMPRNY Business Office Phone 343-1112 Buoy oh Buoy MIAMI (AP) — A yacht sales broker placed the following signs on restrooms in his showroom: "Buoys" and "Gulls."
