Brooklyn psy chiatrist who described the illu sions to Lincoln as Insulting Dr Hicks entered a formal protest against the speech with officers of the association Describes Split Tendency Schizoid is a word of Greek deri vation meaning to split and the ex pression applied to Lincoln does not mean insanity Dr Brill found the trace of dual personality In a reputed tendency to tell offcolur anecdotes which bubbled up as part of Lincolns humor The split personality source was traced to his conflicting inheritances from his mother and father two natures that never became fused in him Dr Brill ranked Lincoln as a wit with Mark Twain Uncle Remus and other great American humorists He confined his study to the emotional side of the emancipator Whatis Lin coins stories Dr Brill his owii and those he priated from others is the fact that many if not most are of an aggres sive or algolagnic nature treating of pain suffering and death and that a great many of them were so frankly sexual as to be classed as obscene Most of his biographers speak of the latter but are at a loss to explain why Lincoln resorted to this form of wit Was Quite Human Thus Beveridge remarked that he had faults extremely human such as his love of a certain type of anecdote a taste which he overcame and the expression of which as will appear was so marked a feature of his manhood and so shocking to the eminent men among whom he did his historic work Dr Brill named as other authori ties for the anecdotes Carl Sand burg quoting Henry Villard and Dr Hollands Abraham Lincoln Looking at this behavior with present day eyes Dr Brill said I cannot be shocked by any of Lin colns stories that I heard or read To be sure he called a spade a spade and having been brot up In the back woods of pioneer days

Brill psycho analyst at Toronto today has added further refutation to Dr Brills statements that some of Abraham Lincolns humor was off color The Lincoln anecdotes Dr Hicks said today were farm folklore fa miliar in Greek plays in 500 B C and are still being told in rural America Dr Hicks after reading an ab stract of Dr Brills speech which among other things stated that Lincoln was a chissoid manic per sonality whose baser nature was under rigid control had previously asked that the speech be stricken from the program Subsequent discussion of the mat ter according to Dr Hicks brot
