EAST LANSING, March 16.-()-
Only one out of four Michigan State
College coeds believes in love at first
sight, and one in every nine thinks
war is an excuse for hasty marriages,
a survey conducted by a college class
in news writing indicates.
Only 12 per cent of the 85 women
interviewed, approved of hasty mar-
riages even in war, and half of this
number qualified their approval with
"if they have known each other for
some time." Instead, they favored

formal engagements of from six
months to one year. Those who
doubted possibility of love at first
sight declared "there at least could
be strong attraction."
Several girls, asserting that coeds
have more emotional stability than
they are given credit for, .pointed to
their own experience: They had re-
fused to be married on the spur of
the moment because they wanted an
engagement period to become ad-
justed and sure of therselves.
Most of those interviewed said they
thought a girl should marry a serv-
iceman only if she would have mar-
ried him if there weren't a war.
The average age of those inter-
viewed was 19, and they represented
all four classes. They indicated they
considered the ideal age for mar-
riage as 22 for women, and 25 for
men, with mental or emotional sta-
bility the deciding factor.

men are cordially invited to attend a
