Jim Both professions are honor- able; both help their fellowman. Law is one of the oldest profes- sions; social work one of the youngest. Because it's relatively new and just coming into its own in prestige many don't recognize it for what it is. The following information may interest you-- and your father. PREPARATION FOR SOCIAL WORK demands four years of college with courses in sociol- ogy, economics, social anthro- pology and psychology, plus two graduate leading to a Masters De- gree. A heap of training? Yes. ~B u t scholar- ships at t h e graduate level are numerous. And 40 per cent of all those in Doris R. Petersg r a d u a~t e schools are men, Salaries compare favorahly with teachers and psychologists. The national average starting salary for graduates is $5,000. Because of the innumerable openings (12,000 per year)' ad- vancement can be rapid and salaries for supervisors and ex- ecutives range from $7,500 to $15,000 per year. THE JOBS ARE MANY, var- ied and interesting. You can choose to wor~ with the old or young; the disabled or the im- poverished; as a group worker or in research; as an executive or director.

The only danger is that after umpteen rinses you're generally tempted to use a dye. And: while there is noth- ing wrong with that either, it's Dear Doris: When picking a gift for friend is it polite to ask her what she wants or should it be a sur- prise?

The thoughtful person goes to a great deal of troub!e to find the gift she hopes will be appreciated She spends time shopping for just the right color. She looks for something to please her friend -- not to make her over. A gift is your way of telling someone you like her --,as she is.
