Wl, THE WOMEN •r ftntk, NEA SUM Writ* Men Who Put Off Marriage May Wind Up Regretting It Perhaps the men are learning what girls have always known. That If you pul oCI marriage too long—the cream of the crop has lre«dy been skimmed off when you get around to looking Cor a mate. Here's a letter from a man who figures that is just exaclty what he has done. "I made the mistake of going to college Cor eight years and sectir- two degrees. Then I served i period in the army before looking around (or a wife. "Then I found the cream hart all been picked oCf. I am 29 years old, an average-looking fellow, neither fat or lean, neither rich cr poor. But to the girls of 19 and .'0 I am too old. "If I had it to do over I would marry one of the cute ones I know at 18 and let her work while I went to college." That's exactly what a tot of young men of his generation have done. Married young and let their wives work while they eithci finished their educations or eot A start in a business or profession. And maybe they were pretty smart at that. They got the "creom oc the crop 11 —at least in their op- nion—for they pot first choice oC the girls ther own age. And now many of them have safely weathered the lean years and are setting down to rearing Camilics. This, of course. Is a farily recent problem Cor men. it used to be that a man waited to marry until h; could support a wife—and then usually married, a girl considerably younger than himself. Now that many young men aren't wives (without'their he I pi the young man who does wait may feel left out in the cold. That, of course, is exactly tlw reason so many girls are willing to marry a man before he has completed his education or made a start In the world. They see other girls marrying young and they figure that thev'd better grab a husband before the best ones are all taken. Now, it seems, nen m«y be facing the same problem. And apparently they'll have to meet It in tile sume. way. Phtbian Class Officers Meet With Mrs. King Officers of the Pheblan Sunday School Class of, the first Baptist Church met last night for a business meeting at the home of Mrs. Fletcher King.
