"It is difficult to believe, but my wife has taken up skiing at 54 and does pretty well at it. She's trying to interest me but. at 62, I'm scared to death of the slippery sticks. Do you blame me for hesitating?" A. No — skiing fS dangerous for the average person past 40. Unless one has developed skiing •kill as a youngster or is umisa- ( ually well-coordinated he has no business fooling around on skis. Bone fractures take months to heal when you're along in years and it's a wise cider who knows his sporting limitations. Q. "I'm 58 and can afford to retire from my job as an insurance broker. I've always thought I'd , like to go into the ministry. Would 1 be foolish to consider it at my age?" A. Net If you've got a real en- thusiam for it. The seminaries of most denominations these days welcome men who have retired early from other professions. The studies won't be easy and you'll probably have to complete your colhge education if you haven't 1 already done so. But if you're determined and zealous you can ! doubtless qualify for the ministry j and what may conceivably prove I to be the most satisfying cwcer of your life. Q. "I'm 62 and would like to supplement niy income by learning to write fiction. What do you think of my chances?" A. Pretty slim. The writing' field is overrun with professionals, and unless amateurs are unusually gifted they don't stand much chance of selling their output. Why not experiment and see if any publishers will use your material for free before aspiring to write for pay. Q. "How can retired peonle supplement their incomes if no one will give them a job?'' A. They, can (a) start home businesses, such as making furniture or breeding poodles, (b) they can go into direct selling on I a commission basis, or (c) they I can start small businesses, such as guest houses or coffee 'shops. Q. "I'm a retired postal clerk and would like to start a mail order service. What do you think of my chances?" A. Not very bright. The mail order business is new so highly developed by professionals with plenty of financing and know-how that it's extremely difficult for a newcomer with limited means and experience to compete with them. However, if you find an item that is unusual, ilsoful, and not readily available at stores there's alw.ays the chance that you can succeed in marketing it — if not by mail then through retail stores. If you would like a booklet "35 Ways to Make Money at Home" write to this column in care of the Garden City Telegram enclosing a stampsd, self-addressed envelope and ten cents to cover handling costs. Breaking Out? SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (AP) — Police said a broken garage door was an inside job. Someone, perhaps a prowler, got locked inside the garage and had *-,pry the door open to escape. Centenarian ToStay Active VALDOSTA, Ga. (AP)-May* be it's the smell of printer's ink or his interest in everything, but E. L. Turner intends to keep an eye on his newspaper as he retires at 100. The title of publisher emeritus gives him the right to do just that. As for the years ahead, he says, "I'll let them take care of themselves." Turner will be loi on March 6. "After 75 memorable years, time has taken its toll," he told the board of directors this week as he retired from active management of he Valdosta Daily Times. Ht ittppcd down as publisher and turned his job over to another Turner, his son E. Mann Turner, who at 75 is following his father's example of longevity. The elder Turner came to Valdosta in 1889 as a $40-a-month printer. He nurtured the newspaper with thrift and wit from a tiny weekly to a daily with a circulation of 14,500. The son of a weekly newspaper publisher at Alapaha, Ga., Turner worked as a printer at Hawkinsville and, Thomasville, Ga., before taking the job in Valdosta. By 1905 he had become general manager of the then biweekly South Georgia Times when it became necessary to report the proceedings of a bizarre murder trial. He decided to print the paper daily to cover the trial. The Times never went back to the biweekly schedule. Sues Animal Hospital CHEYENNE (AP) - A Cheyenne animal hospital has been sued for $3,225 as result of a lost cat. Laura and Bill Hooper, Cheyenne, claimed the animal hospital lost their cat which was left there. The suits seeks $25 for the cat $200 for advertising in an effort to find it; and $3,000 for mental and physical anguish. Diana Wants to Be Lady Astronaut ' MALIBU, Calif. (AP) - Flying, j is a profession for some and a I j hobby for others, but for Diana I ; Dorr — who just became one of the nation's youngest helicopter pilots — it's a ball. j j Miss Dorr. 17, soloed after I I nine hours of helicopter training, ! ! and says, "Flying a helicopter is i I the most satisfying experience of' I my life, to date." j ; "To date" is right, because ! I Miss Dorr has set her sights on j : being a lady astronaut. But, j she says "I don't know how I'm going to beat that jet flying time qualification." Dlera, *f toun., hasn't limited her flying to helicopters. She has her private license and is licensed to fly multi-engine craft, and even holds a license, to fly hot-air balloons — though she's never even seen one. "I got the balloon license for fun. I just applied for the thing and got it." An incentive for learning to fly is provided by her father, who was a pilot during the war. The family usually goes on flying vacations in their own multi-engine craft. "The rest of my family is now in Idaho, where they plan to take a boat trip down the Salmon River. We often take flying vacations to places like Mexico and Idaho," Dianft explains. Her tnefher flit* too and has her private license. What about the rest of the family? "Well, my oldest brother, Johnny, is 14, and really wants to fly, but he isn't old enough to get a license yet. He'll probably begin learning when he's 15. and be ready for the license by the time he's 16," Diana says. Her DIANA DORR— 17-year-old 1 , 9001 up into the clouds in •n egg beater. three other brothers, Danny. 11, and Kenny and Donny, 5, have shown no interest in learning to fly. They probably will someday, though. Diant'* »etlvitl«* aren't however, limited to flying. During summer Vacation she's working for International Business Machines Corp., where her father works. She also finds time for skin diving and sewing. She graduated this year from Santa Monica High School with honors, a'nd plans to attend the University of California at .Berkeley. Men's Fashion Changes Sneuy By AP Newshahirtt Men in their fashion are the quiet types. Their designers never have world-shaking Paris shows. They never grab front page space by raising or lowering cuff lengths, or changing the place to hitch the belt. But men's fashions do change. And men, resistant at first, accept them after some prodding from their wives. A check of manufacturers indicates that these sartorial trends are just around the corner: Shirts. Look for disposable collars soon. Sports shirts will be more conservatively patterned. Sweaters. Smooth refined knits with neat round or V necks are in. Bulky stitched sweaters with ring or turtle necks are going out. Tie*. Narrows continue in favor- Strings are losing out. Suiti. The British, who inspired the Bermudas, are now pitching for a knicker suit. Slim, continental style is status quo. Jackets. Madras plaids are growing less inhibited, as the businessman's color sense grows less inhibited. Evening clothei. Red, white and blue dinner jackets are available in wash and wear fabrics, ideal for the musician, the waiter or the very careless eater. Ck? U.S. Invites Ethiopian Beauties ADDIS ABABA (AP) — Ethiopia is planning to enter the next Miss Universe contest in the United States, but there ar» problems in selecting a condi- date. The choicest part of the local beauty contest to nt»me Miss Addis Ababa may be held in a secret room with the doors locked. Kebbede Asfaw, Assistant Minister of the National Theater, who is running the show, says, "We are very pleased to receive the invitation to participate, but bathing suits are a difficulty." The mlnltter explains that many Ethiopian girls, whose habits are sober, austere and conservative, would be reluctant to parade in such undignified costume before the huge crowds "that would be bound to turn up to enjoy such an unprecedented spectacle." Asfaw's idea is to have a panel of elderly matrons from Addis Ababa's best society examine the girls' physical charmi — and measurements — in a secret room and then pass along the statistics to the judges, in writing. The girls then could parade la gowns, and the judges would concern themselves only with faces, and the written documents. There it some concern, how* ever, that Ethiopian girls from outside Addis Ababa might bt discomfitted in reverse by the conservative precautions. A girl from Aroussl province, for instance, which enjoys local fame as the home of beautiful women, would feel embarrassing' ly overdressed by appearing in public in a gown — or even • bikini. In Aroussl, she wears only a string of colored beads and a sheepskin loincloth. » itz A BEN FRANKLIN DOLLAR DAY DOOR BUSTERS POWEF FUL, PDF TABLE, ELECTRIC VACUUM CLEANER FOR NOME! WORKSHOP! CARS!
