The common attitude in this country among both men and women is that a poor husband is better than none. The woman wKb marries a man who isn't her equal in brains or character feels infinitely superior lo an "old maid," and is so regarded by others. All of the friends of the perfectly "wonderful gjrt" who has never married keep saying to each other, "I do wish Helen could find herself a husband"—not a "good husband," mind you, Just a hus- | band. The sorry-Ionking objects these friends trot out in' the matchmaking zeal are further lestlr.ion.v that they .think a poor husband Is better than none.
