CAREERS AFTER FORTY

The Miracle Worker comes to the aid of the down-and-outer-over-forty and tells him (or her) not to go in for riveting or farming as it requires too much physical energy, but to enter those fields where competition is less keen. He gives all sorts of suggestions, many of them rather obviously revealing that he has not given the subject the study it needs from the angle either of job analysis or openings for untrained workers. His point of view is too much that he himself expresses -- ""If I were Mussolini in the United States --"" as if by stating a fact to be so, he made it so. His attempt at adult guidance does not live up to his high purpose....But -- watch out -- Pitkin's name means sales.
