Males, Females Disagree
On Number, Cost Of Dates
A University pollster Gallup-ed through the
secret love lives of 35 pinned couples and reined
up with a few startling revelations.
The women questioned indicated that ihey
dated on the average of 5.4 times a week, while
their pinmates answered that they dated only 4.5
times a week.
The women estimated that their boy friends
spend $4.09 a week on the dates, while the males
placed the figure at $6.91.
Women, by a vote of 22-13, thought the pin
was in lieu of a ring, but the men thought It was
not, 2-14. (Twenty-three of the couples disagreed
between themselves, the poll revealed.)
The poll, conducted by the Rev. Rex H.
Knowles, pastor of the Presbyterian-Congregational
student house, consisted of a series of ques
tions concerning pinning and dating.
The 35 couples polled rated love of pinmate
and respect for pinmate as the most significant
factors bringing about the pinning. Other im
portant factors varied between men and women.
The males listed these reasons (in order):
1. Love of pinmate.
2. Respect for pinmate.
3. Convenience in dating.
4. Desire not to hurt pinmate.
5. Social Prestige.
6. Exploitation of other.
7. Pressure of friends.
8. Financial considerations.
9. Parental pressure.
10. Desire for popularity.
The women, on the other hand, rated the rea
sons as follows:
1. Love of pinmate,
2. Respect for pinmate,
3. Social prestige.
4. Pressure of friends.
5. Desire not to hurt pinmate.
6. Convenience in dating.
7. Desire for popularity.
8. Financial considerations.
9. Exploitation of other.
10. Parental pressure.
In asking the women, "When you wear his
pin, are you engaged?" Knowles discovered that
25 answered yes and only ten said no.
A similar question asked to the men brought 20
yes anwsers and 15 no's.
Twelve couples disagreed between themselves
as to whether engagement was implied by the pin.
Six of the men and six of the women (in no
case were the 12 pinned to each other) said they
had thought of becoming "de-pinned." Only one
man thought he actually would take back his pin,
the poll revealed.
Five men and one woman confessed to having

The De Paur Infantry Chorus,

Infantry men, will be accom

The chorus was the first im
portant aggregation to spring
from World War II. The unique
group was organized in 3942 by
men of the S72nd infantry regi
ment stationed at Fort Dix, N. J.
A succession of notable appear

as a morale unit to entertain
other troops and, during the next
three years, the chorus sang for

The program will include music
from the many lands the group-

ARMY CHORISTERS . . . Appearing in person at the Stuart
theater Tuesday night will be the de Faur Infantry chorus, s

dates with others after their pinning. However,
Knowles pointed out, all 70 men and women
considered themselves in love, and all but one
thought the love was mutual.
In only one instance was there parental dis
approval of the pinmate. (Thre men said their
parents did not know of the pinning.) In no case
was there any stated disapproval by friends of the
Asked "To whom does the pin mean the most?"
all 35 women thought it meant the same to both
pinmates. The men were not so sure. One believed
it meant most to him. "Four said it meant most to
her. (And one really honest fellow admitted it
meant most to the jeweler.)
The women, 33-2, believed the pinned couples
would get married at once if economic, parental,
etc, problems were solved. The men, again, were
not so sure, giving the affirmative answer, 20-15.
In asking, "How long have you been pinned?"
.Cnowles discovered that the men answered in ap
proximates one year, six months or four week.
The women, however, had the exact length on the
tips of their tongues 11 months and four days,
five months and 17 days or three weeks and two
days. Most men, Knowles reported, overestimated
the length of time.
Following the inquiries concerning the number
of dates a week and amount spent, Knowles asked
the pinned couples if the women ever went
"Dutch." Eight of the women said they never go
Dutch; five often do; the remainder do occasion
ally. One lucky man confessed that his girl often
pays for him. They simply pool their spending
money at the beginning of each month and then
spend it on each other.
Although Knowles admitted that no conclu
sions can be drawn from the poll, he had these
suggestions to make:
1. Man and woman should know what the pin
means. It should mean the same to both and it
often r'oes. It can mean engagement, trial period
or convenience but it should mean the same to
2. Girls should, in many instances, consider
the cost of dating to the man. Less expensive en
tertainment or a sharing of expense should be
thought of seriously.
3. Girls seem to be pressured into pinning a
little more than men. The act seems to be some
what more of a group triumph. For men, how
ever, considerations are primarily indivduat
4. Girls seem to put more significance into the
pinning as an act affecting the fuutre.
5. Pinning attitudes are, generally speaking,'
wholesome and helpful. Knowles "wholeheartedly
approves so long as people know what they are
doing and are honest in it"
