The enchanting cherub may arry an electronic bow and arrow the future, and fly on Jet-pro- *lled wings. Thl* la one of the more de- irtssing of the flood of forecasts which swamp an editor's desk at his time of year. It comes In the orm of a Christmas greeting from ne Hugo Gernsback, publisher of Radio-Electronics magazine, who nparently makes an annual habit >f this sort of thing. If his predictions come true, the romance the future will go something Ike this: Boy meets girl at the club dance, notes her golden curls and big blue eyes, tests her agility and conversational ability through a w turns of the samba and says, the time-honored way: "Baby, where have you been all my life." Girl already has listed mentally :he Important facts that the boy is :all, dark and handsome, a smooth dancer and possessed of unusual charm, so she. too, sticks to ritual and replies: "Just waiting around for you." Science Steps In Matters proceed along the usual route from this point until it's time to announce the engagement. Then cience rears is ugly head. Girl's father, being a gentleman who keeps up with things, has a heart- to-heart talk with the young people. He admits that boy's social and financial backgrounds are impeccable, but adds: "Now, kids, there's Just a little matter of routine to go through with before we can make (his official. I'd like you both to go down to the testing bureau and get your MQ. marriage quotient. If it- checks, I'll give my blessing and furthermore, I'll be doggone sure you'll live happily ever after." So boy and girl go through the tests. These start with perhaps 100 questions, Inquiring In detail Into such matters as heredity, individual taste, sex habits, education, I.Q.i general health, hair texture, complexion RK blood factor, odor preferences, mi -,ical and artistic sense, religious leanings and ethics. Extensive Tests After the young lovers have sweated through this exam, they are conducted Into a germ-proof laboratory where they are allowed o go into a clinch, while an electronic devise records their reac- tons. This diabolical little ma' chine will determine norm of each, and the e'leclric classify the With the Courts Chancerjl Cecil L. Earls vs. H. B. Long, tutt to require specific performance.

This result Is added to the general questionnaire, and all the nformation is then transferred to If'ge punched cards, which are fed Into an electronic calculator. This "electric brain" then will compute the results of the tests, and the kids will find out whether they passed or flunked. If they get a grade of 90 or over, the wedding bells may peal out in triumph. If between 70 and CO, their chances of happiness are so-so. But if tlie grade shows less than SO per cent compatibility, all off. Of course, after going through all this rigamaroJe, boy and girl may lose interest in the whole thing anyway, and decide getting married Is too much trouble. As for me, I'm glad I grew up in an unscientific age. when all you had to worry about was whether you liked the guy. Science Is a wonderful thing, bul I think it should keep it's hands off Cupid.
