NKA Staff Writer 'Good Dates' Don't Always Become Best Husbands Three n - y ea r - olds enc losed in * a recent letter to me a list of qualities which they believe make a ' good date. In order the In which they wrote them down, they are: Tall, good-looking, good dancer, self-assured, knows how to have a good time- That is, perhaps, fairly typical of what a girl of 17 considers a "good date." The only trouble !s r a lot of girls — particularly who marry young—confuse those qualities as the important ones in a good husband. But the best husbands <| .en don't come from the list of ooys who are considered the best dates. The best husbands are just as likely, if not more likely, to come from the ranks of the "not good- looking but terribly smart," or "terribly shy but nice when you get to know him," or "kind of funny-looking and a terrible danc- er-^bttt a wonderful sense of humor"—and many other such cat- egorie.s into which marriage-minded girls pigeonhole the young men they meet. Other Qualities N'cedctl After Marriagu Not that there's anything wrong with a young man's being tall, E:floil- look ing, n good dancer, and self-assured .But if those are his main assets, he Is better ciate- mnterial than husb^d-material.
