8 Fridoy, September 15, 1944 gaherrtietb Calif ornfan SHARING between the SHEARS Hy MAE SAINDERS Girls in their twenties are looking for "sterling" qualities in their husband, judging from preferences expressed by nine attractive Hak- ersfield misses. They date frequently, they dress attractively, they do not believe in wartime marriages, apparently preferring ;to wait until life settles down to Imore stable values. They do not ••rule out the possibility that they might marry "if the right one comes along." Four trails were set up as being desirable qualities for a husband, including "character," "personality," "money" and "looks." Five of the nine girls named character as the most Important ,J7i a prospective husband. t\vo • thought pcmiiuility would make it •easier to live with another person, ami two thought money should b<; a prime requisite, and many men might be found with the other qualifications. Voting for money first, a pretty, brunette paid: "It's only being realistic", and "I think men like their women to appreciate that they can and do make money". The second voter "or money, an attractive southern girl, said, "Men often marry for money, and •while 1 wouldn't marry for money solely, I certainly think it makes for success in marriage. Lots of men are good-looking and have pel sonality and character traits." A five-foot brunette spoke for "porsonaality" as her first, choice, put character second, money next and looks last. "I consider character important, too, b'lt J might be swept off my feet". "Personality is my first choice, for who wants to live with a boring person all of a lifetime," said this voter, who is artistic by nature, and gifted with a sense of humor. Another charming brunette declared she voted for character first as being all important, but she would like personality In a husband because she thinks she wouldn't like to live with anyone who "ate with his knife or didn't clean his fingernails." "Looks" came third, and "money" last. A pretty girl in the WACS bracketed character first, then personality, then looks, and money TWO GUESTS • ONE PRICE THE MAYFLOWER S3* >O. ORANO AVI.

"The more you meet men the more you admire men with character," she said. Said a career woman: "I choose character first because I think a man with character is a pretty safe choice for a life partner, and you can always count on a person if he Is self-reliant, ambitious, a man of integrity and industry. Money is not so important. A mnn of character may have money, or he may have other values as a life aim that arc more important. Personality is a highly desirable attribute and certainly makes home life enjoyable—if not too many other women are attracted to !he same qualities. "Jf he has good looks, 1 would be pleased, but 1 do think that some of tho most interesting men I have met, and unfortunately have not married, have not been too good looking. "Money Is something that you may have today and not have to morrow, so why base a lifetime choice on it." An enterprising secretary, who is doing a patriotic job, said: "Character, personality, look?, and I'm not interested In money." Only one of the five misses voting for character as the first prerequisite for a husband stipulated that he should be of the "same religion," because "it Is most important to agree on such an important subject in order to found a home properly." "It would help if he were euto and I certainly would like him tall, so that wjicn we dressed up we would look nice together. Furthermore, I would like him to boss me. I would want him to like the things I like and make mo like the things he likes. Money is not so important."
