JACKSON, Miss., Feb. 8.--A 70- year-old amnesia Victim awoke today, nervous and wobbly, at the, Mississippi State Hospital from the .wilight sleep of the powerful hyp- lotic drug, with a memory that Bridged the gap between the years when he was found in 1030 a name- ss wanderer. The mysterious Mr, "X" rcmem- aercd he was William II. Lawrence of Birmingham and Tuscaloosn, Ala., and recognized pictures of relatives eft by his brother and sister, Ben H. Lawrence and Mrs. J. P. Haley of Vlanon, Ala. Late last night in an office of the State Hospital, the celebrated "Mr. X" of radio, magazine and newspa- 3GL fame sub-consciously identified nimself under the effect of a drug which lifted the veil of eight years of darkened memory. He told his life's story from childhood to 1930 in detail. At the end of his story he was a .Birmingham, Ala., insurance agent. Herbert Hoover was president. A "money panic" had stricken Wall Street, A German 'ascist- generalissimo, named Adolf Hitler, was _under charges of high treason in Berlin. Then, the memory of "Mr. X" began to fade again and confusion gripped him. Dr. F. A. Donaldson, who had conducted tho experiment, led him alone until the effects of the drug wore oil entirely. Until then the state of the patient's memory will be in doubt. There is no doubt however, about his identity. It had been established almost conclusively before the experiment started by his brother and MAYBE THE OPERATOE HAS OCCULT POWERS sister, Ben H. Lawrence of Tuscaloosa, Ala., and Mrs. J. P. Haley of Marion, Ala 1 . They had seen his pic- Lure in newspapers and magazines, nad come /here with a family group picture taken in 1920 showing "Mr. X," or their brother William H. Lawrence, sitting beside Mrs. Haley. This picture was necessary to the experiment. The drugos effective in amnesia cases only when the physician has some object to show the patient suggesting details of a past incident in his life. Previously the only clue to his identity had Been a belt buckle engraved with the initial L" and Dr. Donaldson had doubted that was important enough to the patient to have proved useful «is a suggestive object. When he met his brother and sister, Lawrence did not recognize them. The picture meant nothing to him until he was under the influence of the drug. Then he recalled it, and gradually, previous and later events of his whole life up to the time of his affliction. Dr. Donaldson said it was probable that Lawrence would revert to the memory of "Mr. X" when the drug wore off. There was a possibility, he said, that he -would remember his real identity. There was almost no hope that he would remember both his identities. As a man unknown, Lawrence was first found her? sitting on a curb. A policeman questioned him. He didn't know who he was, where he was or why. He was taken to the hospital where he hiis lived since, spending most of hi; Jme puttering in the flower garden. His case attracted National atten- By United Press, PITTSBURGH, Feb. 8.--The operator at i-adio station WPDU, Pittsburgh po/ice, sounded very convincing last tight when he listed the height oil a missing man as five feet, 10 inchet. The missing person was Leslie Hofl, 20, address unknown, who is wanted to settle an estate. The radio bulletin, however, went on to describe that Hoff had not been seen by friends or relatives since he was a "small child." tion when he appeared on a radio program a few weeks ago, described himself and appealed for anyone with missing relatives or friends of that description to endeavor to idei}t- ify him. A picture in the Memphis, Tenn., Commercial Appeal and another in Time Magazine were called to the attention of -Mrs. Haley and she believed she recognized him as her brother. She was virtually certain of it after she had come here and seen "Mr. X," but it was not until the victim verified it in his trance that the identification was complete. The hospital staff planned to keep him under observation for"- several days.
