Osand By Hal Boric ' • NEW YORK (AP)—Tell the average woman she's a genius, and what happens? * -/'• She Immediately begins wondering if you are trying to break It to her easy that her years are show- Ing, her nose needs powderlng-^r her face needs lilting. In any case she takes the compliment with deep suspicion, But If, on the other hand, you remark to her, "you're no genius, Esmeralda," she gets downright annoyed. She unsheathes her claws and demands to know why,'' Waverley Root gives some of the reasons In an American Mercury magazine article flatly entitled, "Women Are Intelectualy Inferior." Naturally Root doesn't infer that women arc mentally lower than Barbary |pes, the giant panda, polar bears or the praying mantis. He simply rates them lower than the only other sex they share'the human race with—that simple creature of good will, man. •At least he holds this to be true on the topflight I.Q. level. Genius, the man says, is strictly confined to the iiitilc. • . v Barked by Woman Researcher Root says this isn't just one fellow's uplnEon. Il'e cites a study made by Mrs. Cora Sutton Castle who sifted six encyclopedias looking for eminent women and fauna only Tiny figurines o rmammoth China pieces are also sure to be ' found In another place where looks and durability arc watched by the customer and the seller. at PENNEYS PAY Wontens CCTTCN HCLJ/E DEE/JEJ A widt selection of fine prints in a variety of stylet, some with zipper*.

"It Is a sad commentary o» the MX," commented Mrs. Castle dismally, "that from the dawn ot History to the present day less than 1,000 women have accomplished anything that history has recorded as worth while." Getting nt the root of the matter, Hoot says that genius Lf creative and that while many women have shown fine talent—such as June Austen, the Brontes, George EJtot and Emily Dickson—none have reached the peak of greatness. "There are absolutely no feminine names, none at all, which can stand beside those of the really peat—no Beethovens, no Mlchuel- angelos, no Shakespearcs, no Tol- stoys." And Root says women can't escape this truth by blaming It on tlie tyranny In which men have held women through the ages. He says you can't explain female lack of ger:ius by lack of opportunity--the girls Just don't have the geutus factor In their chromosomes, those llt- e gadgets in the sex cells that ntrol heredity. Some lucky men Fewer Feminine Idiots But listen, ladies, to the masculine unity for being so smarty— "It is also a fact that idiocy is ore common among men than mong women, who may \veli con- der themselves happy to rank low- in genius for the sake of rank• higher In sanity." Root Inclines to the belief that nluo, anyway, is only the rich usln of madness. "You are indeed, mesdames. bard from genius," he said, "But what it? Genius. fron»= nature's point view, is a dangerous abnormality; nd she has dealt handsomely by e women hi exempting them from But Mr. Root certainly loses any aim to genius himself if he thinks at will satisfy the girls. This Is e day of the demanding female,! nd if she wants genius she'll get j —even If she has to carry her ual rights campaign to every Lrbmosome under the American Rg: It ought to be easier to change a umb little chromosome than the Ind of a determined woman.
