Retired Teachers in Indiana Village Are Busy and Happy By MERRILL SWEDLUND GREENWOOD, Ind. £>—The pioneers in Indiana's new village for retired teachers are showing no signs of fading away —they're going to school again. Although the population is still less than half the 200 eventually planned, the place is already abuzz with lectures, forums and classes in ceramics, handcraft, weaving and painting. The big, H-shaped layout of 132 apartments, mostly two stories high, is one of the few communities built strictly for. former teachers. One of comparable size at Ojai, Calif., is a cottage layout. Teachers themselves started planning the village in 1957 through Indiana Retired Teachers Association and its parent body, the Indiana State Teachers Association. Officers of the two groups are in charge of the establishment. Outside Indianapolis The 47-acre site borders on farm fields at the edge of the Indianapolis metropolitan area, with 60 buses a day going by on U.S. 31 on the 15-mile trip to the city. The well-filled car-ports show, though, that many of the teachers still like to drive their own cars. Most of the teachers started payments on their lifetime leases on an apartment before they re tired. The prices run from $7,000 for an efficiency apartment to $18,000 for a suite with living PRINTEDJPATTEKN room, two bedrooms and two baths. They must be at least years old to move in, and the ease must be paid in full by hen. The 73 residents m the home his summer range in age from 32 to 92, averaging 73.4. Construction is still incomplete, but 150 apartments are under lease at some stage. The teachers pay $250 a month or meals in the central dining room, and for laundry and medical care. The amount just about quals the average pension of a retiring Indiana teacher, not counting Social Security bene- its. The $5 million layout was financed with a 40-year FHA loan. The lifetime lease rates represent one-third of the cost, based on an estimated 13-year life expectancy for the residents. Activities Started The teachers began moving in ast November, and they lost no :ime getting activities going. They brought their own furniture, and some found room for a piano or organ in their apartments. They pooled their books :o stock the library off the lobby. Some of the nine men—a bit outnumbered—set up their own woodworking shop. Shuffleboard courts were laid out, indoors and out. Croquet wickets sprouted on the lawn, and bridge tournaments flourished in the colorfully decorated 'obby and lounges, scattered through the building. Lectures sometimes come in two or three times a week, and :ravelers drop by to show their picture slides. "Nobody complains about having nothing to do," said Dr. Sumner L. Martin, the 75-year-old superintendent. Miss Ruth Lucas missed the library she had retired from in Washington High School in East Chicago, so she volunteered for the chief librarian's job. 'I didn't come here to just sit," said Mrs. Violet Huston, I former Indianapolis elementary school teacher, heading for a stint as helper in the library. "I love It," said Miss Blanche WeJlons, former English teacher in Bloomington and Indiana University. "There are stimulating people for good company, and the privacy of your own apartment when you want it. And we're not regimented here the way we were in school." She said she has trouble finding time to finish the letters she starts writing to relatives, Green Thumbs In the spring, Bernie Stewart a former high school principal in Budget-Bright PRINTED PATTERN Picture this flattering, soft brimmed cloche in jewel-bright velveteen, bengallne, linen or cotton — the perfect finishing touch to a new outfit.

Madison and Seymour, Ind., was kept busy digging up small areas for gardeners. He feels some proprietary interest because he invested some of the money used to buy the land for the village site. With 10 religious denominations represented in the home, somebody's minister and choir are usually on hand for Sunday afternoon vespers in the lobby. In the colorful dining hall, birthday parties are held every month. One of the unfinished areas is a layout of 26 rooms which could provide permanent quar- ers for chronically ill. So far, ailments and injuries have required only one room or two at a time in the infirmary sec- ion on the second floor. Only ambulatory residents are admitted, but if they become incapacitated after making their down payment they will still be accepted. Leases can be canceled within the first three months, but Dr. Martin said there have been few departures. Cooking Cues Ever fold tiny pickled onions into a lemon aspic that's planned for a salad mold? Let the gelatin mixture begin to thicken be fore adding the onions. Turn into your prettiest mold and the concoction can grace a buffet supper table that features cold meats. If you want a sugar topping on rolled-and-cut cookies, brush the dough with lightly beaten egg white before sprinkling on cookies. On some drop cookie doughs, tiie sugar will stick without adding the egg white Colored sugar makes a pretty topping for vanilla cookies. Ever make up a package o lemon-flavored gelatin with cup of ginger ale and a cup o water? Delicious background for fruits that are to be folded into the slightly thickened gelatin.

A Lovelier You Mechanics of Dieting By MARY SUE MILLER Seriously now, would you attempt to rebuild a house unless you knew how? It's not likely! Yet the majority of us girls try :o reconstruct our figures—our precious personal housing—without the slightest notion of the mechanics involved. As a consequence our reducing members lose too little or too much weight, and most of their bloom. For successful weight losses you first must learn the purely mechanical processes of counting calories and balancing menus. Then you must come to an un- f derstanding of the possible obstacles ahead. No project ever went off without some hitch. Reducing is no exception. Awareness of diet's stumbling blocks enables you to sidestep them. Here's a run-down: —Expect to be hungry during the first few dieting days. When you expect the worst, any hunger pangs seem mild. Indeed you may not feel them at all. In any case they soon pass. —After some weeks of dieting, anticipate a period when your weight losses taper off. The occurrence is known as the "dieting plateau." It happens because your system needs time to adjust to less food, just as you do. If you stick with your diet, your weight starts again also consider all three as pretty and inexpensive Christmas gifts. Fringed Carryall: 1. Cut a rectangle of fabric 14Vi"x24V&".

According to an advance report, colors will be slightly deep- der than usual cast in forest tones. Gray will be strong alone and as the mixture color in tweeds. Too, gray will appear in a range of new pale to medium-toned colored neutrals. Grayed heathers of sandringham blue, haze green, tapestry rose and smoke are soft and subtle. The top shade in the blue family is mallard, a rich greened- blue. Duck, its brighter counterpart, is seen as an accent color, In the red family, the blued reds of cranberry and bordeau are fashion favorites. The pre ferred young red is a classic blazing shade. A deep purple-rec is outstanding paired with breen (brown-green) Plum and purple are mentioned for high fashion only. Newest browns reflect a red er than usual cast in forest tones. Although camel will not disappear rom the fashion picture, vica- mel, a warn medium brown, will be the newer, slightly darker replacement. Clear bitter gold adds bright accent.
