Marital Advisor
Dr. Paul Popenoe, who spoke in
Schwab Auditorium last night on
"How To Make A Successful 3,11ar..;'
Happy Marriage
Needs Coopeialion
"Cooperation is the greateit
factor in .the establishment of a
successful marriage," declared Dr.
Paul Popenoe, nationally known
marital adviser, in an address be—
fore 500 students and faculty
members in Schwab 'Auditorium
I -
last night..
Dr. Popenoe pointed out that a
balance betwen three forces or
factors must be obtained before 'a
successful marriage can be ob
tained. These requirements 'are a
sincere . and - -cooperative attitude
toward marriage, possesion of
technical information, and the' , '
conviction-that the opposite sex
is not a natural 'rival.
"Newspapers are also contribut
ing to unwholesome attitudes," re
vealed the noted marirage prob
lem consultant. They use seven
column headlines to cry out that
prominent people are not- getting
along with each other. They
never print anything about the
millions of happy marriages. •
