Courtesy was demanded by a large
per cent of the ladies. "Chivalrous,"
however, was an adjective used only
once. Maya Gruhzit said, "Someone
who doesn't always have to be funny
-who can be chivalrous at one time
and facetious at another."
Prefer Good Dancers
The Fred Astaires come in for their
share of the laurels too. Most of the
lassies indicated that they wanted a
good dancer, though most of them
seem to feel about this somewhat the
same as did one girl who said. "I pre-
fer a good dancer, but if he's not, we
can always go to a show."

Blonds And Brunettes O.K. i
There was not much differentation
made between blonds and brunettes.
Only about 15 of the answers seemed
to contain any prejudice one way or
the other, and these were pretty even-
ly divided up between the two types.
No one said anything about red-heads.
Consideration seems to be another
important qualification for a man,
and after this comes sincerity. Other
qualities mentioned were poise, cheer-
fulness, nonchalance, sweetness, am-
bition, vivacity, shyness, and awk-
wardncss. Other various opinions
were that a date must be crazy, hap-
py-go-lucky. clean-cut, little boyish,
