A visit to Haughton's thinking room reveals that he is the cham pion chair tilter of the country. 'If there is anyone who can tilt back' in a chair and balance himself long er than Haughton can he has not been advertised. A visit also discloses that he is not the sort of man who would be sus pected of wearing a wrist watch. He's a fighter.
