1. Franz Alexander. A Double Murder Committed by a Nineteen-year-old Boy.

During a quarrel Mark shot his brother two years younger and his brother's boy friend. He gave two different statements of the act, subsequently withdrawing the second. The first was that his brother's reproaching him about his disorderliness with book shelves stirred in him a senseless rage and he shot his brother and the friend who intervened. The second statement was that he shot the friend first for making slanderous remarks about his former girl friend.

Several important life history facts are related, among them the fact that he was inferior to his brother physically and had several times been treated brutally and humiliated by his brother. When he tried to show himself a man with girls, the thought of his humiliation at the hands of his brother would come to his mind and block him. Similar humiliation in childhood about masturbation was associated. The gun was purchased

There was strong resentment for the brother but, at the same time, the desire to lean on the strong person. Murder was a denial of his own weakness and with to submit. Also, jealousy of the friend was probably present but could not be admitted because it involved being conscious of the desire to lean on and be loved by the brother.

He developed paranoid schizophrenia in jail.

2. Leon J. Saul. Case Presentation of a Young Sexual Delinquent.

This delinquent was the 'tough on the outside, soft on the inside' type. The toughness was a defence against his dependent attitude. The delinquencies were expressions of being a 'he-man.' He felt weak in comparison with his older brother. In situations where he felt he could not compete, he became important by being different. He felt life in prison was exactly what he wanted. He would in reality be completely dependent while looking as if he were a 'he-man.'

The third case is not reported for reasons of discretion.
