discover the " false " they put down in the
previous test wasn't exactly correct. But
in psychometric analysis, ability to guess
the correct column in which to mark an
"X", or to fit the right blocks into the
right holes, or to tell whether an ink spot
looks like a butterfly or a flying witch,
doesn't count. If the person being tested
wants a high reading, they'd better have
done a lot of preparing for it in advance
-- say a few thousand years ago, or something like that.

To make an analysis, you draw a 2-inch
circle -- a clock without hands -- on a piece
of paper, crossed with two equally dividing lines. Top is 12 o'clock, right line
3 o'clock, and so on. Inside the "clock
face "are smaller circles. To make a reading, you hold a pendulum above the circle, after explaining to your Low Self
what it's all about and assigning him his
role in this important drama, and from
then on, you let " George " do it -- (George
being the Low Self). Vertical swings (up
and down or diagonally) tell you what the
Middle Self has in the way of will power
-- strong, influenced, or negative. Next,
you "read " the Low Self, which is done in
the circular swinging of the pendulum over
the smaller circles. From this, you know
the person's health, and personality. And
when you have this all properly logged,
you lay out a 72-inch chart and start
finding out how " dumb" or "smart " the person is whose picture or handwriting you
are reading. This is the High Self you're
reading now -- and the part that takes the
most work and concentration. In the first
place, you need this chart, which is six
feet long, and hardly what you'd call
pocket size. You'd not pull it out down
town and start reading the " intelligence"
of the slick salesman who was offering
you the deal of a lifetime; you'd have to
excuse yourself while you went where you
had more room, and could work without
attracting a crowd.

We neglected to tell you that in making
these readings, you need a signature, or
picture, in front of you while you're
"working". In the case of an infant, or
someone from whom these objects are not
available, you can get the same result by
holding your hand over the end of their
thumb. This, obviously, takes the co-operation of the person being read -- unless
they are a confirmed hand-holder, and are
intrigued by your particular technique.

We doubt if you can take a needle and
the scanty information given here and
go into the business of analyzing people.
It isn't that simple. But you can get the
book -- and find out all the tricks we purposely
left out, or didn't include because we wanted
to gripe about politicians. The book sells for
three bucks, and can be obtained from Max Long,
at Box 875, Vista, Calif. But don't ask Max,
or the Editor, to make a reading for you --
either from your own signature or that of someone you want to check up on. They might do it
-- and you'd not like it. If they had time.

the Biometer process after many changes
were made in Dr. Brunler's system following his death in 1952. "Psychometry " is a
coined word, Max says, meaning measurement
or analysis of something without the use
of the usual physical means. Use of the
five senses is barred. Even space and
time are shelved as physical things.

And the machine -- that intricate piece
of equipment which no one dared manufacture
and sell -- is no longer necessary. All one
needs is a human mind -- and, as yet, this
has not been banned from interstate commerce, altho it has been placed under
some pretty severe restrictions.

Oh, yes. One needs something else -- a
pendulum. But you don't have to buy one,
unless you're the type who likes to use
fancy gadgets. You can make your own peniulum with a darning needle, a thread,
and some waste foil -- and if it's going to
work for you, it'll work just as well with
this jerry-built contraption.

In using the pendulum, you make three
readings -- one for each of the "selves",
the conscious, or Middle Self; the subconscious, or Low Self; and the superconscious, or High Self. Max says that
each self has its own astral body, or
double, which, during physical life,
either interpenetrate the physical body,
or, as in the case of the High Self, may
usually remain 'way off somewhere, keeping contact with a so-called "silver
cord" of invisible substance.

But what has this to do with "reading "
what's right/wrong with Mr. X and Y and Z
and their invisible affiliates? Well, it
seems that the Low Self puts out a sort of
web to everything it touches, and this
web may stretch but it never goes away --
not even after the physical body is "six
feet under", or burned in a fire, or
splashed over the windshield of a car in
the great American game of highway caroms.
As you can see, someone living a fairly
active life would have quite a network of
invisible threads running here and there.
And these contacts, like fingerprints,
can tell the psychometrist what kind of
guy or gal you are, what can be expected
of you in the way of rational action, and
if you're a safe person to have around.
Max suggests cats and dogs, that are able
to find their masters after weeks or more
of "being lost" -- when there can't possibly be any scent -- may be merely following
one of these invisible cords.

Max says the psychometric readings are
much more reliable than the accepted I.Q.
tests, since these depend upon answers to
a set of questions, and the shuffling of
blocks. One school, famous for its boast
of increasing the I.Q. of attendees, gives
the same set of questions at a "graduation" test as given initially, and yet the
school is proud when students come up with
different, and more acceptable, answers.
"Look, we've upped their I.Q. !" they yell,
altho even the most "unable" can write
