Writer Finds Several Ways To Tell Age By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (Af») - How can you tell whether you ate middle- aged? This point is puzzling to many who have heard that the harvest years are the best years, but aren't 'quite sure whether they themselves have reached this landmark of living. Actually, however, there is little doubt about it once you really do reach middle age. You're there for sure if— You feel too old for touch football but too young for croquet. Your scalp gets sunburned higher up than it used to, and it takes you less time in the morning to comb your hair. While reading the evening newspaper, you reach down more often to pat your old dog—and hope he won't insist on taking you for a walk. v Every new joke you hear reminds you of an old joke that seems funnier. In fact, anything that happens reminds you of something that happened earlier— and was better. It comes as a big surprise that Stan Musial is retiring from baseball. Why it seems like only yesterday he was a kid just breaking into the game. Everybody in the house seems to be engaged in a conspiracy to leave the lights turned on and run up your electricity bills. The only time you really sleep well is while listening to an after dinner speech. You no longer have to attend PTA meetings—and kind of miss them.

It bores you to death to see a problem $ay at the theater. All you want is a front-row seat if a cheerful musical' comedy with a snappy chorus fine. You think your neighbor's high school son is spoiled because he isn't interested in digging crabgrass out of yeur town for four bits an hour. Why, At His age you'd have been glad to do it for half that kind of money. On election days you get up early so you can be the first to vote against any candidate who wants to reform anything—be' cause you're cynically certain that no politician will ever carry out a promise. You have no vices left. . .but your chief remaining delights are the bad habits your doctor tells you it is now time to break. That's middle age—the harvest time!
