About that time we printed a little piece predicting that the "Looking-Glass Writers of Amer ica” would support Dick Nixon be cause he possessed that rare treasure, a looking-glass name. Hold this page upside-down In front of a mirror and you’ll find that all the words on the page are complete gibberish except Mr. Nixon’s name itself: DICK NIXON Well, apparently the Looking-Glass Writers’ vote was not enough to carry the day. Maybe they were all so busy writing to This Week that they forgot to go to the polls. Some of the letters we received were even addressed in mirror-writing. Most fascinating of all Has a letter from Mrs. John W. Rodger, of St. Louis, who said she was born left handed and finds it convenient to write upside-down, from left to right. What’s more, she also writes right- RECOGNIZE THESE “MIRROR FACES '?

"Because of this,” she states, "I have few correspondents and grow lonely at times.” All of which reminds us of another looking-glass game that you can play at home with a small mirror and the Sunday newspaper or a magazine: Find a full-face photo of some person ality, and holding the mirror at right angles to the page, place mirror’s edge Hr 2 a BK >* AH ■ I ft 3 on the center of the face. It will show you a new face made up of two left sides (or right sides) and the effect is pretty amazing. It seems like a differ ent person, entirely.

Douglas, a \—( leading New York neurologist, "but per haps the simplest way of putting it is that the average person is ’right-faced’ as well as righthanded. His right eye is the dominant of the two, he chews on the right side, and tends to use the right side more strenuously for facial expressions, such as smiling, scowling. Thus the right side is more developed in appearance and the left side blander.” Below are some pictures of famous personalities as they look when their faces are "mirrorized."
