DEAR MARY HAWORTH: I have a brother who angers me quite often by making the statement that a man's brains can be determined by the amount of moneyed success lie has acquired in his lifetime. He furthermore Actually 'believes 'that he is'just as much above his fellowmea as his amount of success has raised him; and quite often he uses; the "above." expression "better" or Now it is my contention that intelligence cannot be measured by, such a limited yardstick, although I grant full credit to all successful and wealthy people.

Botli Parties Have Comparable Anxiety DEAR- G. S.: Apparently your brother has achieved some degree or financial affluence, the materialist yardstick of worldly "success," and is inclined to be boastful .ibout it,.after'the manner of the Pharisee who smugly thanked God he was superior to "the common man" of his day. ' . . ' Also I gather that you .aren't so clever at money-making as he, and doii't possess nearly - so'much of this : Tvorld's goods, and that his assertions anger .you, therefore, firstly because you reel disparaged by them, and, perhaps -suspect that bis intent is'to belittle you; and secondly because you don't know how to deal a logical or philosophical comeback that Tvould conclusively deflate..-his brag, at le^se to your, satisfaction. And it's the latter "rub" that hurts ; most, of course. Your brother's tedious self praise, as well as your touchiness, have identical • significance. Both are sparked by an inferiority complex at the 'core ol character. Thus 'regardless of his sell- advertised brain's, he'h.asn'; achieved personal composure, and is no .happier in'Ms "success" than you are about, your life-showing. In all probability the intrinsic 'difference between you and' him' isn't one of braias, .but of temper-' araent. He . reacts with driving anxiety to 'his hidden self dissatisfactions, and seeks to silence them. / ' Many Fine "Brains" Don't Chtise Money . As for Brad's'view that a . man's intelligence is commensurate with the degree of wealth he accumulates, I don't agree.

It fcfclps Illustrate yesterday's Case Record. CASE S-258: Frazer W., -aged 47, is a famous American, wealthy, a college graduate, a business* executive with hundreds ol employees, and a brilliant thinker. 'Dr. Crane, I have a confession to make to you," he began recently when I stopped off to visit him on a speaking tour in the East. "If I hadn't been such a fool,, and afraid of shocking you, I'd have come to you six months ago. But I didn't friends to know the aiv'ulj truth." . ' ' Then' he told me of his trip to i California, the past winter. Because' he had a slight cough, he, visited, a supposed physician.'The latter made a cursory examination, flashed a light in his eyes, and then said: "Why,- you have syphilis! Didn't anybody ever, tejl you before?" "But surely. that.coujdn't be-!" protested Frazer, dumbfounded. "Y-es, it must have been congenital," responded this quack doctor. .Frazer had heard ••vague- stories about his father's life as an adventurer and instantly decided that maybe he had caught this venereal disease from his parents. Forthwith, he vlsltecMiIs 'aped mother, and cross-examined her diligently, though he cikln't acknowledge why he was so interested. The Sword of Damocles • . She had early divorced his father, and wasn't very charitable toward the man. • • She agreed that Ills father very torn that he read about, -he decided he possessed. For example, lie even identified many recent mistakes, in -judgment with the mental fogging that occurs in pareisis, or syphilitic insanity. • Each day, therefore, Frazcr lived in mortal dread of losing -his mind. This sword of Damocles was constantly hanging' over his head. Slave To Imagination So he finally resolved to- put Sis house-to rights"beforc the end came. Consequently, he sold his business, gave his children their, share, reserved a small amount to tide himself along till the end came, and then purchased a pistol with which to -put a.'bullet through his'•temple when he felt he was reaching the fringe of insanity.. ' t Meanwhile, he broke his- friendly those who -had known him, and moved to a distant .state. Finally, the suspense drove -iiim nearly frantic. . Then he searched out the leading urologist, in that city and walked into the office, announcing 'that lie had syphilis. "What makes you think so?" inquired this doctor, and Frazer told him the story. -This doctor laughed his . disbelief and had four laboratories test blood and spinal fluid before he could finally convince •Frazer. .... ' Suffice it, that Frazer never.had had syphilis, and as for the myth about his having congenital spylitlis, that'should have been belied by the fact that his many friends amon^ the medical' profession would have detected any symptoms or signs of congenital syphilis the first time fchcy'met him. I could have saved him this 5- months' torture about congenital syphilis even by a moment's tele- 3:30 Hollywood program; 3:30 Mysterious Traveler; 10 The Thin Man drama. \ •1:00 4:15 4:30 •CIS 5:00 5:30 , 5:45 G:GO 6:15 6:30.

Under the ruse-of a routine physical examination, Frazer then hac! his mother's blood'tested,'but she proved to be quite -healthy and free from any venereal taint. He still believed maybe he had inherited the disease' from hLs father, although any of u« medical' friuds could have .informed.him that you c'nnnot be born-with' syphilis' unless mother had Jtl' syphilitic father .thus .cannot procreate syphilitic children through an uninfected mother. Frazer than procured two medical books . on . venereal disease,, and poured over them like a . medical student. Furthermore, every symp- property, an'd to contemplate suicide, all. because he believed, a quack's statement, and wouldn't come to one of us friends. So always doubly check on such serious events at variance. with common sense. And never be a slave to negative ' thinking. Even if you have a venereal disease, you can be •cured. .
