Beecher Lane Appliance CY 4-3613 TIRMS Algong A BROOKLYN.COLLEGE FACULTY member, Dr. Eric Riss, 32, feels that a scientific approach to marriage pays off in greater wedded bliss. He backs up his theory in a practical way, and incidentally makes himself some money, by running a.scientific, machine-made mating bureau. The bureau does as much as possible to eliminate chance. Whether or not Dr. Riss is himself happily married it does not say. » « * I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN ONE TO think that although marriages may be made in heaven you have to live them right here on earth. Science didn't have much to do with it in my clay, but if Dr. Riss can 'do something about taking the risk out of one of life's most important adventures, I suppose I'll go along with him. And if his bureau, by scientific methods, can also teach couples how to cope with marital problems after the knot is tied, it would have my unqualified support. * * * THE WAY THE BUREAU OPERATES is to submit each marital prospect Id an exhaustive interview to find his likes and dislikes, family background, and goals in life. Some 70 personality traits are indexed on a card for each person and the cards are' then run through an electronic sorter. It picks out the people, who according to scientific theory, have the host chances for a successful marriage. * * * I DON'T WANT TO BELITTLE A MACHINE, but it should be very simple for anybody to sort out the ideal wife for a man according to the prospective husband's business or profession. I'm not saying; that marriage would work out successfully because the traits were right, but if the machine came up with this particular set of personality traits, I think I could pick what business her husband should be in: * * , * 1. DEFINITE MUSICAL ABILITY. 2. Is able to stand having a man around the house a lot of the time. 3. Meets people readily and is able to soothe "ruffled feathers". 4. Has willpower to keep her weight down. 5. Doesn't mind being in the public view most of the time. * * * WITH THIS SET OF PERSONALITY TRAITS. I would say that this woman should be the wife of a preacher. She needs her musical ability to play the church organ or sing in the choir, and ministers, especially those with their study in the home, are around lots of the time. All minister's wives get lots of chances at peacemaking and with all of those meetings to attend, with a rich dessert served at every one of them, getting too fat is indeed a hazard. Her living room, at least, has to always be in order because people drop in at all. hours. Though her home belongs as much to the congregation as it does to her, at least she never has 10 worry about the mortgage payment. * * * NEXT, LET'S CONSIDER another woman with this set of personality traits. 1. Doesn't mind being a widow at least three days out of the week. 2. Is able to cope with problems by herself. 3. Can type. 4. Can laugh off jokes about her husband's way of making a living. 5. Is flexible in her attitude toward a permanent home. • * * ' * THAT SET OF PERSONALITY TRAITS indicates to me that this woman, should be either the wife of a traveling salesman or a cross- country truck driver. Most of them are left alone quite a bit of the time and that's just when the furnace acts up or the kids come down with the measles. The typing ability would coma, in. haridy with all those reports her husband has to make, and lacking that ability she should at least be.-willing to,give up. an evening out while her husband works on themvJokas about^ th'e-"farmers daughter'.' and. her husband living it. up on an expense account are so prevalent she wouldn't;, dare take them seriously. Company policies being what they are, she 'often is required to move to ah entirely new town every few years. T * * * .. • : - . ANOTHER SET OF PERSONALITY traits might be: 1. Able to stand telephone interruptions. 2. Recipes for many dinner dishes that are still good after waiting for several minutes or hours. 3. A lack of jealousy of other women who share their most intimate problems with your husband. 4. Patience with people who rob your husband, and your household, of precious sleep for trivial reasons. 5. Sympathy. « * * THIS SET OF ATTRIBUTES INDICATES to me that this woman should be the wife of a doctor, because in that exacting role a wife needs a great deal of patience and sympathy. Or this set of attributes might indicate that she should be the wife of a plumber! You didn't know those two ways of making a living had any similarites ? Well, I've seen the time when a heatless furnace or a plugged drain could be just as much of an emergency as a sick child, and a plumber knows till sorts of intimate things about other women, including what her basement look like and what stopped up her drain. (Most of the time he won't tell them !) Besides that, a plumber's wife has to put up with jokes about marrying him because she didn't want to be called the "plumber's friend." But in the amount of money earned in the professions and the trade •— there the similarity ends. Doctors have it all over the plumbers. * * * SOME GAL MIGHT COME UP WITH THE following attributes: 1. Has had a course in accounting. 2. Is a good quantity cook. 3. Has a strong back, 4. Has considerable mechanical ability. 5. Can cheerfully limit her social engagements to rainy days during the planting and harvest season. 6. Understands economics — home, the law of supply-demand and government-support variety. If a gal has these, she should certainly be the wife of a farmer. * * « A FARMER'S WIFE HAS A GOOD chance to do bookkeeping because these days her husband is involved just as much in business as he is in agriculture. She also has to cook for several additional men, many on short notice. She needs strength and energy because, despite the multitude of conveniences farm homes have now, there are still many things that muscle can accomplish better than machines. And most farmer's wives, so I'm told, take their turns at being extra-hands and at driving the tractor. Farmers' wives must also have an answer ready for their town friends when they say, "You farmers must be getting rich — judging by the price we have to pay for beef at the grocery store", * * * DR. RISS' MACHINE DOES NOT claim to be a final matchmaker. It just picks out the people who, according to scientific theory have the best chances for a successful marriage. However well-intentioned he might be, and no matter how scientific the attributes, I will bet my bottom dollar that match-making will go on the way it has always gone. A boy will meet a girl, notice that she has a neat figure, the kind of face he's always liked, and that certain something that says, "she's for me!" Wham ! They'll be in love and science will have nothing to do with it. » * » I HAVE KNOWN A GIRL WHO SAID she couldn't stand preachers; a woman whose closest contact with a farm was to eat a bowl of corn flakes; and a girl whose philosophy had always been that if you had to wait around for some guy, he wasn't worth having. But they fell in love and married, respectively, a preacher, a farmer and a doctor ! Without a single scientific attribute, they are now ideal wives to their husbands. The science part, it seems to me, comes in adjusting to your life after you have done your match-making. * * * THIS WEEK'S RECIPE COMES FROM A wife of 50 years — Dot Smith, who with her husband, Don, celebrated their golden wedding Sunday. When they were married, an old friend of mine tells me, they were the handsomest couple in town. They still are, and they get such a kick out of living. Congratulations to them ! The recipe is for Baked Chili: 1 pound hamburger 1 can red beans % cup rice 1 pint tomatoes 1 medium onion, chopped. Salt, pepper, chili powder to taste. Brown the hamburger until it is crumbly. Add the beans, tomatoes, washed raw rice, onion and seasonings. Place in a casserole and bake in 375 degree oven for at least one hour. This gets better if it is reheated the second day. — GRACE. 60 YEARS Bert Snodgrass O f Lament will observe his 60th anniversary with the railroad next May. jje has been Lament depot agent for 57 of those 60 years.
