retirement and the care of our aging What gives it spe cial interest is the fact that one day soon or not so soon all of us will have to face up to the problem And theres the further fact that the aged are becoming more numerous The questions most often asked are 1 At what age should retire ment take place 2 What should be done to ease the burden of the aged The nations concern in this field was highlighted in Presi dent Kennedys economic mes sage to Congress Feb 3 when he recommended that the Social Security Act be amended to let male workers as well as wom en retire on reduced benefits at age 62 instead of the pres ent age of 65 That suggestion was in line with growing pressure for great er flexibility in setting the re tirement age It would encour age earlier retirement thus pro viding more jobs at a time when millions are out of work its reasoned On the other hand many would like to work be yond the age of 65 We find then these two oppos ing pressures on efforts to fix the age of retirement On the one hand are proposals for larg er pension benefits which would encourage earlier retirement On the other hand are proposals to let people work beyond the conventional retirement age THIS PARADOX is explained by a growing recognition that there are wide differences in the rates at which the physical and mental capacities decline with age There are differences in their economic and psycho logical needs for useful work These considerations suggest flexibility in retirement age This principle was recognized at the White House Conference on Aging in January It recom mended that more employers consider giving workers some choice as to retirement age Management labor the Amer ican Medic a 1 Association through its committee on Ag ing were all heard on this ques tion mostly in support of letting retirement be determined by the facts and factors in indi vidual cases Strange as it may seem not much has been done about get ting the authentic feeling of the older workers on this question of when they should call it quits Only now a special effort is be ing made to gain this informa tion THE COMMITTEE on Em ployment and Retirement set by ho national organization in this field has asked 254 large corporations to question their 64yearold employes on wheth er if given a choice they would elect to retire the following year Most of the firms however refused to comply on the ground that it would give employes the impression that a change in company retirement policy was contemplated Of the 1442 em ployes who did answer the ques tion most said they would pre fer to go on working past age 65 Another fact developed by the admittedly inadequate sampling of opinion is that more than half of those wishing to defer retire ment said the primary reason for their preference was finan cial They felt they just couldnt afford to retire Others but not so many said they wanted to keeping on working because they like their jobs and feel better physically and mentally when working THAT FINANCIAL CONSID crations play an important part in the workers preference to keep on working was indicated too whcni an official of the United Auto Workers told the

between them would be close In golf that is Who would Ike or Kennedy WASHINGTON Ml Who would win in a golf match President Kennedy or former President Dwight D Eisen hower It would be close a golfer who has played with both said Monday Thats because he said Eisenhower has played more golf in recent years than has Kennedy who has far more potential as a golfer THE GOLFER who made the comparison asked to re main anonymous But he said that Kennedy with practice could shoot in the 70s Reporters never have been permitted to watch either Kennedy or Eisenhower on the golf course Occasionally they were permitted to watch Eisenhower off the first tee and on greens near the club house Kennedy has permitted reporters to watch him tee off only once so far The golfing friend of Ken nedv and Eisenhower made these comments about their games Eisenhower normally was a high 80 shooter Thats about how Kennedy scores now Kennedy has a good golf swing A golf pro would not say the same about Eisen howers swing Kennedy learned golf as a child Eisenhower took it up as an adult That may explain the difference DRIVING IS the best part of Ikes game Hes generally down the fairway 200 yards Kennedy is very likely to slug a few 285 yards and then hook a couple into the rough On the middle and long irons Kennedy is better but Ike has the edge around the green Jacks main fault here is that hes moving too fast And Kennedy is the better putter Summing up the friend of both presidents says this about Kennedys golf When hes on his game hes as tough as a cop More for Polaris Asubs billion
