Dr. Straub MlTerentiated between an obession and a monomania, stating that an obession necessarily Involved a constituent of a religious belief while a monomania did not.

As to the length of time in which ha considered monomania was develop ing in McQuaid, Dr. Straub stated .ha believed that, the form of monomania had been gaining strength In Mc-' Quaid's mind for a period of about two years. "I believe Mint lie was acting under an impossible fate that compelled him to think of his, wile's infidelity al ways," said Dr. Straub, "I ihluk that this idea was Hupreme in his mind to the exclusion of all others, as indi cated by his absolute period of obli vion when he was thinking of his wife's inllilelity an.i finally cams to himself in Kakaako." Under further cross examination by Cal heart Dr. Straub emphasized hid views on McQuaid's condition of the time of Hh'.ioling by stating that "his abstraction was sufficient to make him absolutely unconscious of what ha did." . , Straub stated that if McQuaid had been placed In a hypnotic state, dur ing the period of his monomania ht could have been divorced from tt, it least until some- new circumstance, Involving the fidelity of his wife was brought to his notice.
