FIRST FLOOR AND AT SPRING VALLEY „ Julius Garfinckel & Co F Street « Fourteenth Massachusetts Avenue at 49th Modern Marriage Boys Are Less Tolerant Os 'Dumb' Date Than Girls By Dr. Paul Popenoe Some girls are stiU parroting the old story that they can’t be popular with the boys unless they act as if they were feebleminded. Let’s examine this superstition and see where it came from. Ip this column today it came from Willamae, who is explaining to me why she doesn’t date more regularly. “There’s nothing un usual about me.” she asserts, “but I do have normal intelli gence, and I’m not going to waste my time trying to conceal the fact. A girl has to act dumb if she wants to be popular with, the boys. I’d rather act natural. If all they want is % “dumbelle,” they can dance with somebody else.” You’re all mixed up, Willamae, and so are some other girls who have written me lately on the same subject. The fact is that boys are less tolerant of a “dumb" date than girls are. At least, that’s the finding of two sociologists, Eleanor Smith and ‘J. H. Greenberg Monane. who canvassed 368 students at the University of Colorado. They asked these students of both sexes, what is the most important attribute in a date, and got these replies: Companionability 44% Desirable physical appearance IS Social graces __ 10 Intelligence and education 8 Miscellaneous 25 lOO^v Women, they found, stressed the importance of social graces and attached little weight to good looks. Men reversed this, listing good looks as more im portant than social graces (maybe they couldn’t recognize the latter!). But both were un important compared with com panionability.

I . • V ■ 1 Jt 1 " - 1 1 sense, I think. Men are not looking for a dumb date. Neither are they looking for one whose education is offensive—one who is continually trying to show off her smartness and make them feel inferior. That stands to reason, doesn’t it, Williamae? You’d have the same feeling about it, yourself. If these student opinions are representative, a girl doesn’t have to be brilliant, glamorous or socially gifted to be a good companion on a date, and get a second and third date out of it. She needs to be companionable. What do you think that means, Williamae? I’d sa/ it means that the man enjoys being with her because she can talk (and listen) about things in which he is also interested: because she isn’t catty or a show-off: because she isn’t continually trying to* make herself seem superior by telling about the swell fellows who took her to swell places and spent a lot of money on her last week; be cause she isn’t paying attention to other fellows and neglecting her own partner. She gives him the impression that she enjoys being with him. Naturally, that makes him pleased with himself. Try being companionable, Wil liamae.
