Five cards are selected by spectators, remembered, and returned to the deck. Magician holds deck in left hand. He commands and the selected cards rise one at a time up out of the deck, until at the end the last two cards rise together. This gives the performer an opportunity to get in some comedy patter. After the cards have risen, the deck may be given to spectators for examination.


2 -- Two specially prepared cards. SECRET AND PATTER:

To Prepare:

Take an elastic band, about Size 18 as manufactured by Eberhard Faber and sold at any book or stationery store. Cut off one end of the rubber band. Be sure to use fresh rubbers and test them to see that they do not break easily.

Take the King of Clubs and the Queen of Diamonds from an extra deck. Cut a small hole in the upper part of each card. Through the hole in the King push one end of the rubber band. Pull it through until about an inch and a half of band from hole to curve in band is left on face side of card. Figure 1.

Figure 2 shows arrangement of rubber band on face of King. Now with a wire clamping machine, such as is used in offices to fasten papers together, clamp a staple across the rubber so that it fastens it securely on both sides of card.

Now take the Queen and push the other end of rubber band through hole in this card from the back through to the front. King and Queen should face in same direction and should not face each other. Treat the rubber band similarly as you did with the King.

Figure 3 shows how the two cards look with rubber band hanging down between them and ends clamped to the cards.
