This is not to say that older adults should deny their ages or failing abilities or fool themselves regarding difficulties. It is to say, however, that acceptance of these realities with positive outlook of what can be done and what is enjoyable to do will make the end years better years. " The old are but people with strengths and with weaknesses, just like anyone else. SUMMARY Beliefs about old people are different from attitudes toward them, although the research literature does not often make this distinction.

Men were judged more effective and more independent than women as both 25- and 50-year-olds, but not as 75-year-olds. Thus, as Ryan and Capadano found, women were judged more harshly than men. Men tended to judge men more positively than they judged women. Women, on the other hand, judged the sexes similarly. This is compatible with Kogan's (1979) data of age preferences where women were more even-handed in regard to the sexes than men. Although men were seen as more effective and independent, they were also seen lower in personal acceptahility at each of the three ages.

Except in broad statistical terms, however, deterioration of cardiovascular function with age is not preordained (Fries & Crapo, 1981, p. 91). The rate of organ deterioration can be slowed, the onset of infirmity can be pushed off, and satisfactory function can be extended. In other words, the organ system is plastic. Lifestyles can affect the plasticity in both directions-hastening infirmity and death, or delaying it. Drug use and, as already indicated, cigarettes, hasten deterioration of cardiovascular and other processes.
