the questioning revealed "no sig-;

Dr. Wilson Van Duesen, chief
psychologist at Mendocino State

everything but focused their at

what was happening to the man.
They also registered other facts
of what was going on, but they
were probably rather vague. Hyp

Dr. Wilson said that because
"the scene is so vivid and so im
