Reading Room WORLD OF FANTASY "Useless Ones"

As more and more Baby Boomers retire, will the vast number of retirees still be considered...
Or will they finally get the respect they deserve, and perhaps even envy from stressed-out workers?
This never-reprinted tale from Atlas' World of Fantasy #1 (1956) takes a rather patronizing attitude towards the older characters.
And, if written today, the scientist might be shown as envying the retired couple, who are able to enjoy their now-free time!
Ilustrated by Tony DiPreta, the story's plotter/scripter is unknown.
