MARCH 2G. 1941 DENVER. Colo, (UP> — Police Surgeon Bur urn Forbes musin! over (he vagaries of mankind, ^specially over ihe fact, thai no manor ho-.v drunk a man may be, ho h;v, only Jiau "a couple of boors." According to Dr. Forbos. beer .seems to be the one nncl only drink consumed by those really intoxi- ; cated. "It is a strange thing about uoo- pli- arrested for driving- undor the influence of liquor." ho said. "NTo matter if they aro on a 'beautiful jag; the minute they are asked Every Day In The Week!

" ( Forbes has examined ,100 drivers , who were found to bo intoxieatod i already this year, and figures ihut this adds up to 200 glasses of brew consumed. The surgeon annly/os hi.s eases carefully. "Take ihe well-dressed business man who lias spent the nighi in social drinkin». He talks seriously und truthi'ully uniil asked ihe {amount he has had. Invariably it's > o 'couple or beei's,' ! "Then, the loud type who knows he is drunk and talks continually and emphatically to try to conceal H. He is ready to take an oath T6" ! the Bible that he has had only two beers. "The timid fellow with just a nip loo many considers the whole situation carefully and nervously, and .inswers after lony thought, :hat it was -about two passes of brer.'" Bui Dr. Forbes admits he has had flashes of frankness, too. He recalls one man who said nonchalantly that he hod drunk about. 1G beers- Then he passed the sobriety test. The .surgeon says he has one. test for intoxication that never fails. He draws a circle with a square Inside it, another circle inside the square and a cross inside the circle. Forbes says that when his patients attempt to copy the figure the wildest efforts of surrealistic art are surpassed. m.YTTIKVII.T.E, (AKTO COURIER XE Socialite Who Advertised For A Got lt-Ainid Wild jun<> venture e Head-H aulers 15y NKA Service Tired of sooiaj h«-lumi. \\'ill jfcin sriontist (>r husifor on oxpodition.
