Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - September 1, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 10A The Cedar Rapids Gazelle: Sun., Sept. 1971 Handwriting Tells Tales Ky Sieve llelle A lover would he heller off mil In limk :il what his heluveil wnite, hut at liow it was wrillen. More specifically, honesty and sincerity are exjiressed more convincingly hy the slam, sine. etc. of the handwriting than by the words elKisen. In fad the only trails that an analysis nf handwriting does not reveal are sex. aye and whether the writer was left or right-handed, according I" local handwriting experts. Otherwise every person's unique stylo of handwriting is a "mirror of their fceliass." according to Leona Haworth, 5119 slreel SK. a sludenl of the science. Robert Larson. Wliii iicgai avenue NE, the leading experl in (lie area, claims that a handwriting analysis can even diagnose illnesses. "Every- thing from a headache to heart trouble is shown in he said. "LOveii a cut in the writer's finger or elsewhere will show up in the writing." he added. "Anytime a nerve is severed it influences the writing which is controlled hy the nervous system "Asthma, eye problems, hearing, organic it's an illness then it's shown in handwriting." Far-fetched? Not to a medi- cal research group from the Quad Cities that has been us- ing the technique since according to Larson. Both I.iM'siin anil llaworth concede Ilial their findings are met with raised eyebrows anil a touch of skepticism. They note that handwriting analysis has not been well-applied in the Midwest although it is in other areas such as Chicago. "Most people classify it with the occult or psychic, hut il's really quite a science." said llawiirlh. "II involves a lot of psychology." "No longer is it just a parlor 'added Larson. To back up his asser- tion. Larson pointed out that different handwriting experts come lo the same conclusion when working with the same There are established guide- lines lo follow that lake ninny years to master, said lla- worth. How hard a writer pushes a pencil, the manner in which the i's are dotted and the t's crossed, whether a per- son writes straiglu across a blank page or lends to let the pen wander up or these are significant in mak- ing an analysis, she said. There arc a multitude of ways that an analysis can be applied. Screening job ap- plicants, determining vocation aptitude, learning more about line's emotions, discovering marriage compatibility. "Several Catholic priests in the area use handwriting ana- lyses to point mil characteris- tics that a person should watch out for in his marriage partner." remarked llawiirlh. "II can really help immensely in working things out. "In seme two people may Ihink a lot of each other bill an analysis shows they really arc just not compatible as far as marriage is con- cerned." she continued. "Bui at least the analysis cnii pinpoint characteristics thai the partner should guard against lo conflict." "Handwriting analysis can help a person cope in her association with her husband, family and others." Larson said. llawiirlh said she ignores content when analyxing handwriting or printing. She often blows up individual characters in I he writing In a II by 12 inch picture so they can be more clnsely scruli- for pen pressure and other aspects. Sound conclusions in form- ing a composite of a person are drawn from an entire ex- ample of handwriting, not from any one stroke or indica- tor, she stressed. Signatures be deceptive. "A signature is practiced for years." llaworlh said. "You choose it. you like it, you think your signature tells other people what you are. But your other shows what you really HIT." A person who wilh a slight slant to the right, for example, relates well with people and lends to express feelings. Haworth noted, f the other hand, a person w] it's Your Business!

There is a souther: accent and a northern am middle accent." said Dr. Him 11 rri Winn, a University n Rhode Island oceanographcr. He said whales near Hi Bahamas sing in a dialcc which differs from whales ii I he Puerto Rico or Virgin Is lands areas. When a whale sings, he cai he heard by another whale a leasl 211 miles away am "perhaps even hundreds n miles." Winn said. "II is possible that the sing ing serves as a birth contro device." he said. "When tin banks become crowded will whales the water may be lj) erally salurated with tin sound and the whale reproduc live system may be upset." Winn said the singing humpback whale was liar pooned early to near exlinc lion but now is making comeback.

You may be giving more away about yourself in such a simple act as omitting to dot an i than you realized. A heavy dot over an i indicates intolerance or anger; a circle dot indicates individual- ity, while lack of a dot could indicate carelessness, thoughtlessness, shiftiness or shrewdness. A person who crosses his t above the initial stroke is likely to be a daydreamer whose ideas are born but never carried out; a cross to the left could indi- cate hesitation or person might say he will do something but never get the energy to do it; a t crossed to the right of the stroke indicates an aggressive person; a t with a short hook at the be- ginning of the crossing line shows a person who wants to hang on to what he has whether it's materi- al goods, his family, knowledge or whatever, and a t crossed as in the fifth example indicates persistence "He's going to cross that t or else." Three Faiths Joined One of the most heroic acts of World war II occurred on Feb. 3. 1943 when the U. S. transport Dorchester was torpedoed. The World Alma- nac recalls that four chaplains For War's Brave Act gave their lifebelts to soldiers aboard the ship, linked their arms and prayed as they went down with the vessel. The chaplains were of the Catholic, Jewish and Protestant faiths.

"As a shopkeeper. 1 must say it isn't so good because everybody who would have worked in the trade center would have bought something in my he said. "But as a Parisian I must admit the park is very good, discard is Irving to keep our city from being ruined by skyscrapers." Canceling the trade center in the Medieval area of Los llalles was the fifth act the new president has taken since his May election in Ills ef- fort In save the historic areas of Paris. Hi; rescued the beauty of Noire Dame cathedral by pull- ing the rug out from under a plan by the city council to build a four-lane auto express- way next to thi! Sllll-year-old structure. The president promised In review the entire surge to turn Paris into a Seine, launched by his prede- cessor, deorgcs 1'umpidou. who declared Paris should mil be a museum but should adapt to the automobile age. Sugar, 'Shine Trigger Battle OSLO I wo centuries of peace, Norway and Sweden are nl each oth- er's throats lime over a lump of sugar. With heavy taxe.-> causing exhorbilanl liquor prices, moonshine has become Nor- way's most popular social beverage. The Norwegian type of home brew needs a lot of sugar. Because Norway imports sugar at world market prices, currently about 115 cents per pound, Norwegians have been flocking across to the Swedisli border towns, hoarding gov- ernment subsidized Swedish sugar at half the price. Recently the Swedish gov- ernment decided lo hall the sugar traffic and said that no foreigners were allowed lo buy more than five kilos (11 pounds) per person. This restriction angered Norwegian housewives and distillers of illegal liquor and now thirsty Norwegians are demanding that Norway strike back by banning the sale of Norwegian subsidized mar- garine to Sweden.
