Tennis Ball

1. Stewart James' "Love-Sick Tennis Ball," TOPS, Dec., 1940. Ball is placed in a box, open at one end. Magician stands across room, utters the mating call of the tennis ball. Ball rolls out of box, across table, drops on floor and rolls to his feet. Ball has a pin hole that lets air escape when you push with thumb to form a depression. The depression allows ball to remain on a slope until it slowly regains its rotundity which starts it rolling. A large unprepared box placed on its side, back end resting on something (say the cover of the box), creates the slight slope required.
