Wives Failures No Avers Sociologist Good As Brunettes Claim NEW YORK May make excellent wives and are just as divorceproof as brunettes if not more so according to Prof Ru dolph M Binder who is head of the sociology department of New York University The statement made recently by Judge Graham of San Francisco that men should never marry blondes if they wish to be happily married is utterly absurbin the opinion of Dr also ridicules the pudges warning to avoid a blonde with blue eyes which he says is positively a fatal combination which leads only to the divorce court with a subse quent high alimony tax for the gul lible husband What about all the golden haired princesses in the fairy tales said Prof Binder whenasked to give his opinion on a blonde versus brunette Legends and fairy tales invariably describe the good and beautiful ieroine as haying long flowing hair the color of the brightest gold in the You may say that they are only fairy series but all of them are woven around basictruths This par ticular one is based on the fact proven by that the Nordic race was the founder all reat civilizations the Greek the loman and so on down the list The reason that so few blondes are left n the southern countries where they once reigned supreme is due to their nability to acclimate themselves So each charming and wonderful rincess was described as having londe hair with blue eyes the color of the bluest sky immemorial men and beentrying to find their appropriatematch for a wife or hus said that the human soul was created in two halves one male MOTHER AND D A U G HT E R

civic dead and buried on what is known as the old links located south with tin cans twisted broken bottles and a decayed a tomb stone If it were not It would never offer a stranger residence onits unsightly combination of play and burial Yet that Is precisely what it offered the Al G Barnes circus for its exhibition ground yester day The cook and mess tents of the circus comprised an oasis entirely surrounded by debris One climbed overthe heaps in inirninent danger of tripping over wireiand slipping over rusted cans only to fall headlong into a heap of broken bottles It was a touching could imagine nearby residents coming to their favorite burial ground almost any evening to mourn over the lost contents of their tin cans and mayhap to pour outtheir woes and add another touching sentiment of tin cans and broken whisky bottles First Impressions It is said are the most lasting In this event the Al G Barnes circus per sonnel must think the civic pride of this city is ashollow as the tin cans on the dump of the golf inks and the other female and when the twa complements met it would form an ideal marriage This is perhaps the best expression of the theory of ideal mating sorts of devices have been resorted to in the hope of making the vperfect marriage One was to marry only persons of the same race and faith This still perhaps is the most universally accepted rule It has been broken into many times An the fact that mankind has made progress is due to the non observ ance of this rule Numerous smaller schemes have been devised to suit Individuals Phrenology is one of these which guarantees to find the perfect match for your own bumps of knowledge or visa versa But it was discharged long ago by scientists and in even unscientific circles It seems strange that a man of such status as Judge Graham should hark back to that ancient If he advises men never to marry blondes he seems to act contrary to the oldest principles along this par ticular line Brunettes have almost invariably been adventuresses Because two persons are dissimil ar only broadens their basis of sim larity Natures may differ to a cer ain extent but that very fact should make for better complement with each other An ideal match does not mply that husband arid wife should 3e as nearly as possible of the same emperament and physical equip ment It requires rather some dif ferences
