Many men become uneasy about job loss or change in Uieir laLe 30s because o[ fear they won't be able lo get an- other job because of pension or insurance strictures. Mr: Douse said this old -excuse for rejecting middle-aged appli- cants no longer holds tme. He no'ed that in 1067 a fed- eral study found there was "nothing inherent in tlie na- of a pension plan to make it impossible Jor an em- ployer to hire an older worker .0 retain him beyond nor- mal retirement age." study found that re- s t r i c t i v e clauses "were thought to stem more from employment policy than from pension policy."

As for insurance "the ef- fects of age on a large group would be small on an individ- ual cost basis unless the aver- age age group was extremely "Sh." Because workers aged 45 over constitute almost one-third of Canada's labor force, Mr. Douse feels upper age limits in hiring don't make much sense. limits might simply screen out "the most quali- competent and stable "S."

How Bountiful Is Your Memory Crop? Those Were The Good Old Days lly HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) The human memory is like au- tumn, a season of bolli recol- Jeclion and premonition. It is also like autumn in that it is a harvest. The re- ward of the green and grow- ing years is the golden sheaf of memories one is left with in the Indian summers of life. Your own memory crop is hountiful if you can look back and remember there really wasnt much r "d Tor an alarm clock be- c luse there was always a rooster somewhere in the neighborhood to announce lie dawn. Many a farmer made pin money by hitching up his team of horses and charging Sunday motorists to haul (licir stranded cars out of mud holes. Everybody seemed to start munching raisins at once after word was spread that they put more iron in your system.

Many a man who lived a long life died in the same bed and same room he born in. Neither babies1 nor dogs were expected to subsist on canned foods. You could become a local celcbrily if by some chance you had met heavyweight champion John L. Sullivan in a bar anil shaken hands with him.

WIND UP PUOi'lSLEIt It was a sentimental day for mother when she got a new gas stove and threw away the o 1 d wood-and-coal-burning iron monster that had been m the kitchen long years. In most of the country a fel- low had to think real hard to find a reason for staying up after midnight. Before taking off in an air- plane, the pilot first had to wind up its propeller. The favorite pinup girls ot the Second World War sol- diers were Faye Emerson and Betty Grable. Kids when digging a back- yard cave always conjured up the dream of going all the way through the earth nnd wondered if the first person they mot on the other side would speak Chinese. Every child also hoped to be the first lo cntch any new dis- ease lhat appeared in his class. The most popular air condi- tioner in hot weather was R cardboard fan. Those were tlie member?
