How The City Family
Spends, Income
"Recently the Bureau of Labor Sta
tistics painted us a fairly accurate
picture of where the average city
family spends its income. According
to this government source, the aver
age city family in 1950 made $4,330,
after persona ltaxes.
The average American is 30 years
old, married, and the father of two
children, in the process of paying off
a morteasre on his own home. He has
a car, a refrigerator, and a radio and
by the time this editorial is published
he has probably bought a television
Set' :.':
Out of the $4,350 income, $1,300
is spent for food and alcoholic bever.
ages. To break it down even further,
only about $65 a year is spent on al
coholic beverages. About $600 a year
is spent buying or renting a house,
Buying a car and other transportation
expenses run around $500 a year, and
recreation, reading and education
takes $350.
Clothing cost $400 to $550 a year,
with the women of the family spend
ing 50 per cent more than the men
on wearing apparel. An estimated
$200 out of the family budget goes
for insurance.
As a matter of fact, what the sfa
tistics really revealed was the fact
that the average city families spent
$350 more than it had coming in
1950. iNow the question that comes
to our mind is Just where did the
average American family learn about
deficit financing? ', .. .
Resistance To
Mandatory Retirement
There are many men who have
reached the mandatory retirement age
of 65, many women who have readied
wr 60. who do not wish to retire
This growing resistance to mandatory
retirement became stronger witn tne
announcement that the cost of living
has risen to a new high.
Compulsory retirement at fixed
ages is much less attractive with the
cost of living at 190.8 per cent of
the 1935-1930 average. (With the cost
of living more than 12 per cent high
er than it was before the Korean war
started, many workers eligible to re
tire would prefer to keep working
rather than retire on pensions with
little purchasing power.
A recent study of the Metropolitan
Life Insurance Company revealed that
"at the older ages particularly after
65 years employment falls off; nev
ertheless, at ages 65-69 close to 56
per cent of all men are still working,
and nearly 3 per cent are looking for
work" and further revealed that "even
at 70-74 years almost 40 per cent are
in some gainful activity."
It is difficult to select any manda
tory retirement age because there are
bound to be individuals who are men
tally alert and physically active after
reaching that age. At the same time
there will be others who should re
tire before reaching the selected age.
'Another thing that adds to the prob
lem is that ever increasing life span.
Practically everyone that we know
would like to be in a position to stop
working and retire when he reaches
a certain age. if he then elects to do
so. A great many individuals who
have passed the so-called retirement
age continue to work, however, al
though they do not need the money.
' Work, it seems, can be a source of
Happiness, and under normal condi
tions it seems a pity to deprive any
one of a job well done, a contribution
to well-being of society.

Farm Bureau Executive Vice-IPreai-
dent R- Flake Shaw, of Greensboro,
says that the total supply of peanuts
on hand at this time is substantially in
excess of last year, and called on farm
leaders in the North Carolina, and
Virginia peanut-producing counties to
make arrangements at once to provide
adequate storage iaciutiea for this
year's crop.
Shaw said the total consumption of
shelled peanuts, including oil stocks
for crushing, totaled 699 million
pounds through July of this year.
This is about 29 per cent less than
the consumption of 082 million
pounds at the end of July last year,"
he added. , , 1 . -
The Farm Bureau chief pointed out
that information released by the vari
ous crop reporting services indicates
a somewhat smaller peanut yield-in
the southeast and southwest growing
areas tins year due to recent drought
conditions. "This information mav be
misleading because it neglects to men
tion the large stocks of -peanuts on
hand and gives the farmer the im
pression that a short crop will in
crease the market demand," he said..
Shaw said under the arrangements
for handling this year's peanut crop,
the buyers would not be bound to any
support principle, and unless the farm,
er is in a position to protect him
self, he may have to sell his crop
for considerably less than the sup
port price. :" ' i-v- -
