Abstract : We construct a sign reversing involution on the shifted rim hook tableaux with some conditions. Using the Stembridge's combinatorial interpretation for Morris' rule, this involution give a combinatorial proof of the orthogonality of the first kind for the spin characters of $\tilde S_n$.
