Presents a follow-up study conducted to determine anomic & egotistic theoretical factors of contemplated suicide among voluntary and involuntary retired males. Significant differences were found in the Ss contemplation of suicide when considering degrees of anomic & egoism; as anomic & egoism went up, responses of comtemplated suicide went up & vice versa. Involuntary retirement tended to increase the probability of contemplated suicide under each condition. (10 refs) (LH)
