Description
Judge Myron Westover, left, and Milton Carlson, handwriting and identification expert, examine a typewriter brought to court as a silent witness against James P. Bell for his trial tomorrow on charges of forging a mortgage. Carlson asserts individual characteristics of the letters "h" and "a" on the machine coincide with the "ha" added to the name Bert to make it Bertha on the alleged forged mortgage. The prosecution claims the typewriter has been traced to Bell. Photo dated: August 31, 1927.
