All the time the questions are asked and all the time you think, and answer, three metal arms make small zig-zag lines on an endless roil of paper. You're taking a lie detector test. The test is not to determine whether you go to jail. It will help determine if you get the job, I services sends all job applicants to Truth Verification after they have filed out their employment applications. Not all agree to the.tests, however.

[straight? What about the persons 'u-ith •' !r'-t'->"-v of recessive drinking? Don't the tests prevent such persons from ever getting a job? Keener says just the opposite is true. "Most employers are prone to CTj ve everybody a chance if they feel they are not taking too much of a risk. If a man with a pas? criminal record says he wants to KO straight — and the lie detector test shows he's telling the truth — the employer may hire him because we have shown the man has honest intentions. "If a man with a drinking problem says he hasn't had a drop in eight months— and the machine proves he's telling the truth— he stands an excellent chance of being hired," says Keener. One of the other uses of the lie Hftfvtor tf>st — or the Truth Verification test, as Keener prefers I to call it— is to determine why i a person wants a particular job. "It costs a long distance truckling company hundreds of dollars jto train a truck driver," Keener •says, "and before a company 'starts a man on a training pn> : gram it wants to know if the ' man intends to remain with the ', company or try to sell his newly- acquired skills to some other 'firm. The test will show what ;the man's intentions arc." j Persons bring considered for | promotions to such positions as ;vjr<? president have also taken tests to determine their loyalty 1 jo {he firm, habits of work, at- Itentior to detail, honesty, and ; intentions of staying with the company or using the promotion i as a stepping stone to a higher paying job with another firm. Keener claims the machine? never make a mistake, but the man reading the results can miss an important sign or misinterpret the results. This is one reason Keener is not anxious to appear in court to testify about results. "The element of error," he says, "could cause nndue dam- ag<> to a person." If he must appear in court ho would prefer to testify on behalf of the defendant. As far HS intuition is concerned. Keener says "you make a mistake «Vn you tend to believe th<~person rather than the machine." After years of trstine he te"ls that he is not much bettor •••qijipp'-d than th* average p«r- t son in de-tf-rmining if a person ; is telling tJv truth by the oM jfashwrwd look-me-right-in-the eye ! method.
