Mental Jar Of Unexpected Idleness One Of Hazards Of 'Growing Old' strfiMvitfia lorvtit*. *%-_ .* ..« .... ... . *^ 'S tfOTEt One af the hazards of turning old is the phyclatrle jar of unexpected Idleness. Some people who can't adjust to it become bored and resentful. People accept the deterioration of their bodies with better grace than the restlessness of their minds.) WASHINGTON (UPl)-There s a popular belief that old age tself Is a disease and that people die from It. Nothing could be further from the truth. "There Is no known case of death from old age," says Dr Edward L. Bortz, a Philadelphia expert on aging. "No pathologist has ever established at the autopsy table that a person dy- ng of natural causes had body issues correct and adequate in ;very way except that they had worn out in the process of liv- ng. In other words people do not die of age. They die of dis- ases which occur with passing ime. These diseases are recog- lizable and can be studied." What does happen is that here is likely to be impairment )f some of the faculltles. Eye- ight can deteriorate. About one n eight persons aged 65 to 74 as an impairment of hearing nd after 75 the rate becomes •ne in four. Old people lose heir teeth, but the experts are nclined to blame it more on ack of care than on advancing vears. The American Automobile Association has found in simulated driving tests that reactions of persons aged 70 are a tenth of a second slower than those aged 20. Foremost Worry Probably the one thing that worries old people more than anything else is a decline In the powers of memory. In other words they become absent minded, and that rouses fears that they are drifting toward mental trouble. The President's Council on Aging gives this example of the problem: Recently In St. Petersburg, jFla., Joseph Letter was address- 'ing an audience of 5,000 old people who had assembled to hear a concert. He opened his remarks this way: "There's a brown Bulck parked on the street behind us here. The owner probably won't remember the license number, but perhaps he will remember ihis Buick was brown. It's not .in the way or anything. The | owner simplv walked away and I left the motor running. Many old persons accept the I deterioration of their faculties iwith good grace and a sense of , humor, but for millions retire- |j merit from an active life is a i shock. Women make the transition better than men because there still are floors to sweep dishes to wash and beds to be made up. A man who retires ;it 65 can be in for serious trouble as Dr. Alexander Reid Martin explains in "education for life off the job"Common Symptoms "Sleeplessness, the inability tu 6 Santa Feans Vying For Fiesta Queen SANTA FK IUP1 - One i.f six Santa Fe girls will be selected t o n i q h t a* the H«i5 Santa F?

The Fiesta Queen will reign over the Santa Fe Fiesta scheduled for Labor Day weekend. relax and the fear of leisure are among the earliest and most common symptoms of so-called psychiatric illness. These symp- tons are, of course, unrelated to pain and any demonstrable physical disease. "When these patients are confronted with leisure, they are restless, dissatisfied, irritable and they show great intolerance of inactivity and waiting. They have great feelings of guilt If they read a book, go to the movies, watch TV or do anything for sheer pleasure. They are especially Intolerant of children. They can overcome this feeling of guilt somewhat if they place all these activities under the heading of necessity — TV and theater are musts for education and vacations are musts for health. "Unless they give a logical purpose and good practical reasons for what they do, their feel- Ing of guilt persists. Many things that should be openly I pleasureful are done rebeliouslyi — or defiantly. This, in turn, then is followed by a deeper sense of guilt." This question of mental attitude is a measure of the size and diversity of the problem of the aged. What does it avail us i to see that old people are well! ed, well housed and given ade-i quate medical attention if mil- ions of them are going to be bored and resentful because of :heir new freedom and leisure? Misses Fact The answer of many psychiatrists is that the aged should be encouraged to go in for self education. They want people to buy phonograph records, read novels and history and learn a "oreign language. The idea sounds attractive, but it ignores j .he fact that in many cases old' people would have to break the \ Dattems of a lifetime to get any jenefit from it. A man who has i gnored books and music all of his adult life, is unlikely to acquire a sudden taste for them on his 65th birthday. More like- 1 y he will sit in the living room ! and worry and speculate on what is going on down at the j office or factory. i For persons who make the i xansition into old age graceful-: y the activities fall into two categories: Active and inactive. \ The most popular in the inac-i tive field are watching televi- j sion, listening to the radl, read-1 ing newspapers and reading magazines. But the most successful of all old people are the ones who go in for activity, and this is the order of their preference: Collecting things (stamps, coins etc), traveling, card playing, gardening, fishing, bowling, sewing, hunting, photography, boating and handicrafts (do it yourself activity'. ..(Next: .The .dollars .and cents problems oi the old peo Watershed Project OK'd WASHINGTON - Two watef. shed projects In New Mexico have been approved by the Sen* ate Agriculture Committee, but one still must be approved by the Mouse.
