(VEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 23. 1053 BIYTHEVIUJJ (ARK.) COUKIKP N'KU'S PAGE THIRTEEN TV Isn't Answer To Free Ti After Retirement Loafing Not Enough Without Work to Do, Experts Contend CHICAGO (AP) — If you would be happier after you retire from your job you had better try lo find a sulnfit'itc for work* Watching TV or following an isolating hobby will not do the trick. « This is one of the preliminary 'conclusioas reached bv .sociologists at the University of Chicago who have a three-year studv under way in six Florida communitios. First reports on the studv appear today in the American Journal of Sociology in an i^ur- devoted entirely to the subject of growing older. L. C. Michelon, assistant professor of industrial relations, says there is a difference between the leisure of the job holder merely pausing between work activities and the full-time activity of retirement. Hobbies Not Satisfying "Leisure of the individual busy at work is welcome," said Michelon, "because there is the knowledge that there will be a return to the vital business of work. With retirement, the individual must live for himself, rather than worry- in? about a job or what other peo- , pie require of him." "Looking: at television, taking 1 a ride in the country and engaging in hobbies are called leisure for the person engaged in work, but actually they are only a 'pause' between activities." He added that hobbies a man undertakes in isolation are satisfying during his working life be.,-cause It is good to escape the bus- ^ftf:le and bustle of daily living. •• Tn retirement, however, isolating hobbies are not .so satisfying, he said, since the new leisure should force a person into activities with others. i -UXCRA NEWS ; By MKS G C.

Churlsi£ Little, clement'\ry school principal, brought them in a school bus to get the most beautiful dolls their dancing eyes ever saw. would have melted your heart. One little girl was asked. "Whul will your mother say when you show her your doll?" Her reply was; "She's too |'nr away to see it. She's in heaven." Somebody was thoughtful enough to teach her where her mother had gone and when she spoke of her mother her eyes had neither sad nor gay expression, l couldn't ex-' press it on paper, but it has haunt-j ed me; she was the most grateful little piece of humanity I have ever encountered in a child. Her first reaction was to grab me and kiss me when I handed the little doll to her. She looked up into my face, her big brown eyes say- Ing a thousand words. I asked her name. "Mary." was all she toldj me. I might have known. , THE DOM, I handed her .must have been the nearest thing to an angel she ever dreamed about. After lifting up its pale yellow satin dress and examining- the underclothes she said, "It must have*took Jesus to make them ruffles." No other phrase she could have used would have expressed it any better. One tiny»rader stood so close to me i could hurdly reach over her to hnnd a doll to thu little 1 girl behind \\n\ { noticed the tears in her eyes nnd thought perhaps, the tears were caused from being over."

In years to come, when these little girls' thoughts and memories go back to that wonderful Christ- mns of 1953, perhaps they will hunt up a small child and gladden her heart as these women have done for them.
