September 14, 2004 -- The expert chosen by CBS to check Dan Rather's disputed National Guard documents got his start as a graphologist analyzing "Spirituality in Handwriting" and lacks recognized document training, The Post has learned.

<B>Analyst Marcel Matley lists "Spirituality in Handwriting" and "Female/Male Traits in Handwriting" on the Web site for a foundation he serves as <U>librarian</U></B>. They were privately printed, but another analyst provided portions to The Post.

<B>In "Spirituality in Handwriting," Matley assesses a woman's "libidinal energy" based on her handwriting. </B>

"She has an excellent and rich animate nature with a healthy, instinctual libidinal energy which, when integrated, will propel her into dynamic and fruitful activity and self-fulfillment," Matley wrote in 1989.

<B>In "Female/Male Trait in Handwriting," the San Francisco-based Matley said he could analyze a woman's handwriting "to show her how she can have her womanly qualities fully realized."

The article continued: "For your male client, you will be able to recognize the facade of machismo and also recognize the hurt boy- child who uses that as a defensive hiding place." </B>

The Post obtained the documents from California-based David S. Moore, who is certified by the American Board of Forensic Document Examiners.

<B>In addition, in a 1995 California court deposition obtained by The Post, Matley acknowledged that he had no formal training in a document lab, in identification of papers, inks or "machines, typewriters, photocopies." He also acknowledged he'd had no training from the U.S. Secret Service, FBI, U.S. Army, California Department of Justice or any other law-enforcement body. </B>

Matley didn't respond to messages left for him.

CBS spokeswoman Sandy Genelius said the network regards Matley as a reputable handwriting expert but declined to say why they chose him.
