4-Algene (la.) Upp*r DPS Molnet Tueidey, April 6, 1965 IF YOU REALLY DESIRE IT— YOU CAN PROSPER AFTER 65 All of you approaching retire-i •** mcnt can't do what Mr , Robrrt T. Fairoy. Sr.. has done ' But most of you can follow his | pattern, and find a better life j than you're likely to have other- : wise. | Mr. Fairey. who is 74, retired j to a town called Latta. S C.. i which has about 2,000 inhabitants I This was in 1959 Since then he ( has become a distinguished ] citizen all over again, has taken over some of the community's more responsible jobs, and added considerably to his retirement income. A wide-ranging career had preceded Mr. Fairey's retirement. He graduated from Wofford College in South Carolina, taught school for three years. He served in World War 1. Then, returning to teaching, he moved to Latta and became superintendent of schools. He moved on to other schools and eventually served 10 years as supervising principal at Avon Park, Fla. By 1937 he was state adjutant of the American Legion in South Carolina, then went with the Veterans Administration as a specialist in claims and rating procedures. Meanwhile he prepared a history of the American Legion in South Carolina, and as a result was named national historian of the Legion in 1953 and held the job four years. "When 1 first retired," Mr. Fairey says, "we built a small home, and 1 gave most of my time to yard work and a vegetable garden. But I soon realized I had to take some interest in other things. Also I needed a little more Income . . ." His first move was to got a job as loral correspondent for two daily newspapers that were circulated in thr Latta area From that base he moved into the Latta Merchants Association, and was askrd to br its secretary A year apo he was circled to thr Latta town council for a four- year term Then ho was named to the executive committee of his County Chamber of Commerce. A little later he began work on his local newspaper, The Latta Observer, and now writes a column called "Facts and Fairey Tales" His latest job is as correspondent in his county for the national firm of Dun & Hradstrect. "I find myself going too fast at times and have to slow down," Mr. Fairey says. "Hut 1 believe 1 would rather wear out than rust out. 1 am in reasonably good health, although 1 have been hospitalized three or four times since I retired . . ." Mr. Fairey retired to a town where once he had an important job. Many men like to do this, hut 40 years elapsed before his return, so he tackled the town with few advantages any other retired man wouldn't have in any strange town of 2,000 people. Mr Fairey chose n town in the state where a large part of his working years were spent. This, too, was no particular advantage since in this day of transient America state loyalties arc breaking down. New nOI.DIIN Vl'.AHS .in-iiRie booklet nnw rrndr. Srnrt Me In rnln (no nlnmns).
