IS 65 YEARS ENOUGH?
Senator James Couzens of Michigan, now 55
does not care to live beyond the age of 65 years,
“ 1 hope I do not live more than ten years long
er. That would be about right. 1 will have had
enough of life bv then. This, of course, applies to
me only. I would not presume to judge a span of
life for others.”
While Senator Couzens states hat he is speak
ing only for himseif. yet it is m >st unbecoming
of a United States senator to give expression to
a sentiment of this kind even tho'.gh he may se
cure some public notice, which he did not crave
so keenly a few years ago when he entered the
American senate. He is one of the wealthiest men
that ever held a seat in the senate.
A contrast to this opinion is expressed by
Count Ilya Tolstoy, son of a distinguished father,
who is visiting America, who says:
‘‘At the age of 65 I am as active mentally and
physically as I was 20 years ago. I expect to re
main so for at least another score of years, al
though I am looking forward to thirtv-five years
more of life. Every normal person has tre right to
expect to live a whole century.”
The harm done by the senator’s statement is
that many elderly people will get the idea that
they are iooked upon as ‘‘has been” after they
reach the age of 65. Nothing could be farther
from the truth. The greatest statesmen of all
times have been men beyond the age of 65. Hun
dreds of examples of men and women could be
cited, who have made their greatest successes be
yond the age of 65.
No, Senator, you have another guess a coming
even about yourself made privately and express
ed publicly. You should read the lines of Brown
ing’s “ Rabbi Ben Ezra,” which run as follow s:
“ ‘Grow old along with me— the best is yet to be.”
And don't throw out the gloom about being
through at 65. Don’t you know that we are all as •
old as we feel, or as our friends think we are?
ADVERTISING COMES INTO ITS OWN
“ Public utility companies will spend $28,000,-
000 for advertising this year.” Here, in this news
item, is food for thought. It makes one wonder
if there are still reactionaries who insist that ad
vertising is useless and a waste of investors’
Statistics on the strides that advertising expen
diture and space have taken, would be of tre
mendous interest to the studerit of modern indus

doubled itself many times.

ant of all, the newspapers, advertising and pub
