Enclosed please find sample of my handwriting for analysis. Name ...... Street... City and State ..... By LOUISE RICE Noted Graphologist Dear Miss Rice: “I am 22 and seem to have gotten nowhere in life. I have mostly girl friends and don’t seem to be inter ested any more in the fellows. I am very unsettled. Can you tell me how to overcome this?” “LORALEE.” Why, dear child, there is nothing the matter except that you are grow ing up and that you need a real oc cupation, strong ambitions and train ing and stimulation of your mind. It is not natural for young people to be concerned solely with social life and with mating, natural as those two interests are to such a time in life. This is especially true of people like yourself who are so in ately thoughtful. As for getting nowhere in life . . . Loralee. 22 is just infancy! I don’t care how old and serious you feel, that’s a fact. Make up your mind that you are going on growing up for at least the next eight L4j J&'TrMufao 'd&fa/JL fUd- &L-, years, and that self-training and mental training are the things to which you need to turn your atten tion. Then you will be interesting to interesting people, and will slowly build up a circle of friends who will mean something to you. Do not have such a “do-less” atti tude toward life. Your nature has some laziness in it. You are too easy going. Try to make a more deter mined stand toword life, in general. I know that you have courage and that your mind is an excellent one and that you are more or less men tally efficient. Try to do mental work. How about being a librarian? That pays well, would interest you and would bring you in contact with the people whom you could genuinely like and respect. Put the thought of marriage out of your mind for a while and when you do decide to marry, it will probably bring you happiness. HOW TO DO IT Showing a Happy Diapoaitlon It is not possible to judge the dis position by one indication in writing. We have to make a composite picture to be sure of this deduction. The basic line which slants upward is one of the most positive signs of a happy disposition, but if the writing is angular that upward slant is more of a sign of energy and am bition than it is of a really happy nature. The upward writing which is angular tells us of people who fight against unreasoning depression. The rounded writing which has an upward flung basic line expresses a nature which does net have to fight, I HOW WELL ARE YOU KNOWN AT YOUR BANK?

Rozell Auctioneer IF IT HAS VALUE I CAN SELL IT AND GET THE MONEY San Benito, Texas but accepts life with joy and assur ance. If the cross-bar of the letter “t” flies far in advance of the letter and if the “i” dot does the same, the writer has the instinct to accept life hopefully and in it usually can find amusement and interest, no matter what its trials and tribulations. The writing which is even and well spaced and written at a slow pace may be the expression of a good and sweet tempered disposition, but it is never the exponent of gayety. KLAN SLAYING NEARING JURY Former Organizer on Trial Third Time At Sweetwater SWEETWATER, Tex.. Oct. 12.—(JP) ith the court's charge to the jury completed and attorneys’ arguments well under way, as the result of a special night session, the trial of L. P. Kirk, former Ku Klux Klan or ganiser, for the murder of Crawford Tabor near Whitney in 1924 was ex pected to reach the jury today. Tabor was ahot to death near the farm home of his father-in-law, J. N. Wells, after Kirk and four companions hid called, according to their testimony, to take the deceased man to a Klan initiation. The state has attempted to prove that the five klansmen had Intended to inflict bod-1 ilv injury upon Wells. From the witness stand yesterday Kirk related events of the night of Tabor’s death, consistently refuting previous testimony of Wells, the father-in-law. Wishing to initiate Tabor into the klan and having learned that Wells, with whom Tabor lived, was opposed to the organization, the five klansmen decided upon a ruse to get Tabor away from the house without arous ing his father-in-law’a suspicions. Kirk testified. Upon reaching the vicinity of the Wells home, Kirk said, he left his companions in the automobile and went to the house afoot, intending tn plead motor trouble and ask Tabor’s assistance. Tabor, the would be klansman, then was to have been taken into a neighboring field and initiated. Welle volunteered to accompany him to his automobile. In walking to the car, Kirk said, he was in front, with Wells and Tabor walking behind. Just before reaching the machine, Kirk testified, he heard a shot and turned to see Tabor grappling with Wells, who held a 1 pistol in his hand. One more shot was fired, he «*id. According to Kirk’s testimony, he then got in the automobile with his companions, one of whom had been wounded, and drove away. Two previous trials of Kirk re sulted in hung juries.
