Lift Begin* «t Forty Boredom May Result in Tired Blood By ROBERT PETERSON . "My blood is so tired I can hardly drag myself out of bed mornings. I retired three months ago and my health has declined. I manage to get up and fix lunch, but this tires me so I have to go back to bed for the afternoon and then face a sleepless night If this is old age it's even worse than I thought." A. A complete physical checkup will likely reveal there's nothing wrong with you that some brisk daily exercise and • job and new interests won't restore. The so-called tired blood afflicting many elders is nothing more than ennui, apathy, lethnrgy, and boredom — all caused by Inactivity and the lack of purposeful things to do. Q. "You're always urging folks to get more exercise, but my doctor tells me exercise can lead to lack of balance, ringing in the ears, and a string of other ailments. What do you say to this?" A. I think you ought to get another doctor. Regular, moderate exercise is the most healthful tonic available. No competent physician will dispute this. Q. "We'd never had peta until last year. Then a couple of stray cats came along and my wife took them in. They had kittens and she couldn't give them away, so now W3 have eight cats roaimng the house and my wife refuses to part with them. Am I right in putting my foot down and saying half-a-dozen of Proctiturion Cleanup Promised in Ceylon COLOMBO, Ceylon (AP) — A cleanup of prostitution at the government's Scavasti hostel for out - of • town Parliament members was promised today by Hugh Fernando, speaker of Ceylon's House of Representatives.

Chettnut •« 6-3111 MIMIER GARDEN CITY INSURANCE •OARD them must go?" A. I'm on your side. I love cats, but eight of them underfoot would drive me batty. When folks acquire dogs or cats as pets they should see to it that females are spayed immediately so they don't trigger i runaway pet population. Q. "You popped off your big mouth recently saying nobody had to live in citv slums. You said all a slumdweller hud to do was move t* » small town somewhere and settle down. Do you really believe .bis?" A. W«ll, I boltov* the Lord helps those who help themselves. If s a free country and nobody is forced to live in crowded, crime- infested city slums. If a slum- dweller wants to change all he's got to do is hop-a bus and head for any of hundreds of prosperous small towns and find a better life for himself. Sure it will be tough at first — but he'i not going to starve. If he's willing to work he'll eventually find a niche. If settlers of yore could move, to the wide open spaces and build new lives for themselves, tt should be ten times easier for modern day pioneers. Q. "You've written several Garden City Telegram Saturday, February 15, 1944 pieces about jobs available at $1.50 an hour for older people. How is anyone expected to live on that? If you had any real Interest in old folks you'd insist they get a decent wage." A. It would be fine if there were higher-paying jobs around. But there's a definite Job shortage and part-time work at ft or $1.50 an hour is welcomed by most older people as a supplement to Social Security and savings. If y«v would like a booklet "Exercises for Folks Past 40" write to this column in care of the Telegram enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope and ten cents to cover handling costs.
