Historical Slant

Sir:

Handwriting Analyst Muriel Stafford is right as far as she goes in analyzing Dean Acheson's "left-slanted" script [TIME, April 4], but she does not go far enough. History shows that none of the men who have distinguished themselves on the political scene, at any time, wrote a left-slant. Nor did a single one of them have low, "modest" capitals. They wrote a right-slant, were outgoing, and interested in "the greatest good for the greatest number." The left-slanter is, primarily, concerned with the "choice few."
