B«a4 TJb* AOt— It UVERMOREBOY, NOW TEACHER IN EAST, COMMENTS Raymond Wallace Ex plains Study to Analyze Woes of Marriage A farmer LJvermore youth, Raymond Wallace, now a professor at Connecticut State College, Storres, Conn., declared that a child In Iowa has two and one half times the chance of getting a college education than does one in Connecticut, in an interview here last Wednesday. Mr. Wallace, his wife and their Tour children were guests of Mrs. H. A. Van Alstyne, who is a sister of Mr. Wallace. From life at Livermore, young Wallace departed to take a four year course at the University of Iowa, in 1920. Four years later he way graduated, working his through school. Then he attended the University of Minnesota, obtaining a Master's degree, and from there went to Columbia University, New York City, on a scholarship, where he obtained his Ph. D., the goal of all scholars. He has been at Connecticut State for the past seven years teaching plant physiology and botany. One of the experiments being made is a seven year test of 300 couples, by one of the professors at the school, to ascertain what causes matrimony '.o go on the rocks. The couples are being traced through courtship, matrimony and parenthood, and thus far the old theory that opposltes make the best married couples has been blasted. Mr. Wallace says. The best marriages and most happiness occur when people of similar likes wed. He also predicted that President Roosevelt would win the forthcoming election, basing his view not on surveys but on the fact that the city worker and farmer are pretty certain to vote for Roosevelt, and that the metropolitan dallies who are so bitter against him, are not going to carry much weight. Mr. Wallace stated that there is a definite trend, a very noticeable one, among many easterners, of understanding the problems of the middle west better than ever before, and they seem to realize that the prosperity of the nation depends on the prosperity of all sections. He also prophesied that there would be a growing demand for a more liberal government, based on the theory that rewards would go to those who deserved them because of superior ability, and that many of the ideas believed in. past years to be radical and socialistic would come to be accepted as part of our everyday life.
