Jack Carlson, the new executive director of the American Assn. of Retired Persons, said Friday that Congress should abolish the rule that reduces Social Security benefits for those who continue working until age 70. The earnings penalty is "dumb" and discourages older workers, said Carlson, who will become the chief operating officer of the 26-million-member organization next month. Elimination of the penalty would expand retirement benefits by $5 billion a year.

Only one concession is made because of the age of John Bogosian, according to Bob Talbot, operations manager of the Ralphs Supermarket at Woodman Avenue and Sherman Way in Van Nuys. "Every wrapper is assigned an hour to get the carts from the parking lot," the operations manager said. "During these hot summer months, we allow John to be exempt from this." Other than that, the 82-year-old Bogosian takes his place at the end of a counter from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

He ends the day telling his wife: "I don't know how they ever got along without me." More "Now Hiring" signs are in evidence at some businesses, and more near- and past-retirement-age men and women are responding.
