protest from the police commission

Your Face and

The "Normal" Expression.
When the analyst first looks at
you, he notes your expression not
the fleeting, transient expression
that flickers over your face in re
sponse to some passing thought, but
the permanentl normal expression
which the face assumes when in re
pose, and in ordinary conversation.
The analyst classifies expressions
somewhat like this: the alert, live ex
pression; the passive, negative one;
the calm and courageous, and the ex
citable and irritable. Look at your
face in the glass as you know you
look most if the tint. Where docs

What It Tells
Dress reflects character, conscious
ly and subconsciously. If some
women knew what secrets about
themselves and. their state of mind
they are telling through their dress
to the character analyst and psycho
analyst who meet t! .n on the street,
those women would "go home and
get a blanket," as one slangy young
Omaha psychologist puts it.
It is not the expensiveuess nor
cheapness of clothes that are notcll
by a character analyst. It is the con
dition of the clothes, the color com
binations and the way they are w orn.
L'nshined shoes point to a careless
ness somewhere else in the make-up
and the analyst is then instantly on
the watch throughout to find where
this carelessness shows up.
There will be a later article, more
in detail as to dress, especially di
rected to women.
