Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - September 1, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 10A The Cedar Rapids Gazette: San , Sept I. 1974 Handwriting Tells Tales Bx Sieve Hello \ lover would bo better off not to look at what his beloved wrote, but at how it was written More specifically, honesty and sincerity are expressed more convincingly by the slant, size. etc. of the handwriting than bv the words chosen In fact the only traits that an analysis of handwriting does not reveal are sex. age and whether the writer was left or right-handed, according to local handwriting experts Otherwise every persons unique style of handwriting is a “mirror of their feelings." according to Leona Haworth. .*09 Sixteenth street NL. a student of the science Robert Larson, MIMI Regal avenue NL, the leading expert in the area, claims that a handwriting analysis can even diagnose illnesses “Kvery-thing from a headache to heart trouble is shown in handwriting." he said "Even 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 by the nervous system "Asthma, eye problems, hearing, organic disorders—if ifs an illness then ifs shown in handwriting.” Far-fetched ’ Not to a medical research group from the Quad Cities that has been using the technique since ISHO, according to Larson Both Larson and Haworth concede that their findings are met with raised eyebrows and 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, but ifs really quite a science.” said Haworth "It involves a lot of psychology.” "No longer i" it inst a parlor amusement." added Carson To back up his assertion. Larso.i pointed out th.it different handwriting experts come to the same conclusion when working with the same example . Their are established guide lines to follow (hat take many years to master, said Haworth How hard a writer pushes a pencil, the manner in which the i s are dotted and the Cs crossed, whether a person writes straight across a blank page or tends lo let the pen wander up or down—all these are significant in inak ing an analysis, she said There are a multitude of ways that an analysis can be applied.

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 individuality, 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 indicate hesitation or anticipation—the 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 beginning of the crossing line shows a person who wants to hang on to what he has whether it s material 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.

"But as a Parisian I must admit the park is very good discard is trying to keep our • tty from being ruined by-sky scrapers. ” Canceling the trade center in the Medieval area of Los Hailes was the fifth act the new president has taken since his May 19 election in his effort to save the historic areas of Paris. He rescued tin* beauty of Notre Dame cathedral by pulling the rug out from under a plan by the city council to timid a four-lane auto expressway next to the 800-year-old structure The president promised to review the entire surge to turn Paris into a Chicago-on-the-Seine, launched by his predecessor (ieorges Pompidou, who declared Paris should not he a museum but should adapt to the automobile age Sugar, Shine Trigger Battle OSLO (UPI)—Following two centuries of peace, Norway and Sweden are at (‘ach other’s throats again—this time over a lump of sugar. With heavy taxes causing exhorbitant liquor prices, moonshine has become Norway's most popular social beverage. The Norwegian type of home brew needs a lot of sugar Because Norway imports sugar at world market prices, currency about H5 cents per pound, Norwegians have been flocking across to the Swedish border towns, hoarding gov • ernment subsidized Swedish sugar at half the price. Recently    the Swedish    gov ernment decided to halt the sugar traffic and said that no foreigners were allowed to buy more than five kilos (ll 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 Sale End* Sal. .):.'{() P.M.
