More than half the men qucs-+ Honed In a recent poll claimed they wanted wives more Intelligent than themselves. That poll, I hasten to add, was taken in France. American men NEVER marry wqnion more Intelligent than they arc—not if they know it. And they never know it, due to a little game American women play. In America there is an unwritten law that the man has to be the more intelligent. If he actually is—it's simple. But when he's not, the girl who wants to make him fall in love with her has to keep him from suspecting the awful truth. ' She has to pretend to be less bright than he is. And she has to make him look brighter than he is This may wear on her at limes, like when she has to listen to him explain something to her she could better explain to film. NKBD SflMK ACTING But it isn't a difficult leal at all. The girl asks questions, instead of answering them. Slic asks advice she doesn't need. She says "What do yoo think?" instead of parading her own opinions. She manages with wide-eyed admiration to make him think she is only bright enough to appreciate his superior wisdom Thanks to this little game American women are willing to play In order to get husbands, American men never—so far as they know- marry women who are more intelli- ient than they are. They not only don't.prefer wives Livestock NATIONAL STOCKYARDS III Oct. 3— (»)— IUSPA1— Hogs 10 000-' market 25-50 cents' lower than Friday's average; barely active at de- c ' m ,<-: bulk good, and choice 200- 2501bs barrows and gilts 1925-50- top 19.50; heavier weights very scarce; odd head small lots 260-300 Ibs 18.00-19.25-, mostly 180-190 Ibs 18.75-19.25; HO-I70 Ibs 17-00-18 75- very few lighter weights on sale' few 100-130 Ibs pigs 1-1,50-1675- good sows 400 Ibs down 16.75-17.75; heavier weights H. 75-16.25- mostly 15.00 up; stags 12.00-14.50.
