JLUJOJJJJ.JJJJJJJJ, WHAT YOU INHERIT AT 65: A RIGHT TO GET IN TROUBLE Y ou inherit, on the day you retire, a special "fight" you probably have not had in your adult lifetime, and it can be a precious asset to you. It is, in brief, the right to get into trouble. Lyle W. Tomlinson, who retired four years ago from an industrial job and is now in trouble, explains how it works. "My wife and I moved to our small town after 1 retired, and settled down to become, part of the landscape. We joined the church, helped the good causes, and came to know most of the people in town. We didn't amount to much ... we were just growing older. But it was a nice life. "Then last year the Mayor came to me and asked me to serve as a member of the town's Housing Board. It paid ' $10 a meeting, and was an honor. It also was a can of worms. The Board had been involved for months in a fight over a Federal housing project just off the main street of town. There was a racial angle to the issue, and a good many people weren't speaking to each other because of it. "Well, my first reaction was to ask myself why I should be drawn into that kind of mess. Then I wondered why not? At my age it didn't really matter if some people grew angry at me, called me names and wouldn't speak to me—provided I did something I thought was right. In my 40's or 50's I would have avoided such controversy as a matter of policy. At 69,1 reasoned, it didn't matter much. And nobody was going to do me physical harm. . ." He pointed out that he could not have afforded to get into such a controversy while on his iob. His company would not have stopped him, but it would have wondered why, for Goodness' Sake, he couldn't have become involved in the Boy Scouts instead ... Mr. Tomlinson accepted the (lousing Board job, publicly stated his views on the housing project, then set out to convert people of the town to his views. He has been at it nearly a year now, has made enemies, has been asked twice why he didn't move back where he came from, and has lost a couple of friends. "The town is about evenly divided on the housing project, so there's usually one person who thinks I'm a hero for every one who thinks I'm a bum," Mr. Tomlinson says. "But as I explained, this isn't important in retirement. The vital fact is that after 65, with your income guaranteed, you can afford to stand up and be counted, to fight for things you think are right. You don't have to be afraid to get into trouble. . ." Mr. Tomlinson believes all retired men or women should candidly appraise the changed circumstances that have come to their lives, and ask themselves honestly if they should not now champion every cause they believe in. Mr. Tomlinson suggests that every important political campaign, every local bond Issue, every important decision faced by the local and state governments should bring the retired man and woman into action.
