senior citizens is a praiseworthy mark of our era Sometimes however I feel we proceed from a wrong atti tude at least a faulty empha sis prone to ask What can we do for these old peo pie At least half of the time I really think more than half of the ought to reverse that question and ask What can they do for our com munity and for society in gen eral For the normal person theres a lot more satisfaction in help ing than in being helped Thu principle is at the center of an old gag about the lad who sought to make somebody grandmother the beneficiary o his daily good deed by helping her across the street There wa just one thing wrong She didn want to go across the street The thing Im talking about here is by no means new or original with me Its inherent in the ancient observation that experience is the best teach er Experience and wisdom are usually synonymous Its the worst kind of bad business to let these values go untapped Thats what happens when our senior citizens are put on the shelf prematurely of tha most inspiring and unforgettable men Ive e v e r known spends a great part of his waking hours practicing what I am preaching in this commentary He wastrying to do

article about him in the Satur day Evening Post It is my contention he as serted that a person who has accumulated a stock of this worlds goods has no moral right to go to Florida sit under a palm tree and wait for the un dertaker This man of means is no more independent than the sen ior citizen who lives on a pen sion He relies entirelyon the labor which earns the dividends on his securities He has no right to accept this labor and not give back something in return Heshould work for the community for the church for civic affairs Maurice du Pont Lee is de scended from the famous Du Pont family and from the Rob ert E Lee family Just about a decade ago he retired from a career as a chemi cal engineer with the Du Fonts In the views Ive been quoting he wasnt talking about some body else

students abou newspapering as a career he talked to them about the chemi cal engineering field But in his contacts with u other Old Masters socalled he would pour out his conviction that theres an element of crim inality in permitting the know how of our aging people go un used just because they happen to have reached a certain con ventional retirement age As theoretical proposition SAME leader

Gaillot said The Archbishop warned a 11 three in a personal and confi dential letter last month to stop opposing the church on school integration or he would have them excommunicated M r s Gaillot
