## Facing The Chart So That I Cannot See The Listed Questions On The Cards

Now, according to how you placed the cards on the chart, I see that the MOON is facing the SUN and that the FAN is at an angle to the MOON, which means, according to the influence existing at this moment, that you will gat the news that you are waiting for within a week and it will be news to your liking. Does that answer your question? It does? Thank you very much.1'

Pick out a few questions yourself from the chart to answar, and you will see how easy it will be for you to work.

When giving an answer to the various questions; always give a happy answer that will please the listener. ...For such a question as: 'Will the sick one improve'1 you could say, "I'm sure that with confidence in the Doctor and a determination to get well, the patient will be much better off in a very short time. Does that answer the question you thought of?

Take the ASTRO-QUESTION-CHART and SYMBOL CARDS with you at all times and you will always be prepared for the person that asks, 'Can you read my mind or tell fortunes.

Contents: 3 stands,3 double faced ESP cards and 9 double backed cards. (The words between the quotes are the patter).

Place eight double backed cards in a pile with the red side up. Place the eight double faced cards in another pile with one double backed card— blue side up, on top of that pile. Fan the double backed cards with the red side toward the audience.

''For this demonstration, it is important that you remember the color of these cards. They have red backs.1'

Close fan. Show second pack, blue back facing audience.

"And this pack contains blue cards.''

Do not fan this pack. After showing back, place pack on top of red cards, so that symbols are face up. All double backed cards will now face the same way. Pick up the cards so that symbols face the audience. Place the double, faced cards on stand, one at a time. Use the two stands without the paper insert.

!'The symbols on these cards are modeled after those used in the famous ESP experiments. I have a square, circle, etc., etc..;;

Continue placing double faced cards on the stand until all eight are on the stands. You v?ill be left with the nine double backed cards (red side facing the audience) in your hand. Fan these cards. Select a member of the audience.

''I am going to project a thought to you. The thought will be one of these eight symbols that you see on this stand."

Select one of the double backed cards and place it on the stand with the paper insert. Place it in the right corner of the stand.

"This is a duplicate of the card whose image I am about to project to you. Make your mind a blank. Try not to think of any of these symbols. Just picture a pure white card. The whitest white that you have ever seen. On this card a black symbol will gradually appear. It is getting larger and larger, blacker and blacker. It is getting clearer, and clearer. You can see it plainly now. A black symbol on a pure white card. Tell the audience., what symbol do you see?1.

He will mention the name of one of the symbols—DO NOT LOOK AT THE BACK OF THE DOUBLE FACED CARDS—Look at the front of the cards, the side that the audience can see. Select the proper symbol, and place the card on the stand next to the first card.

:;The second part of this experiment will consist of a demonstration of thought receiving.1'

### A second member of the audience is selected.

"I would like you to mentally select one of the remaining seven cards. Have you selected one? Don't tell me what it is. Are you satisfied with your choice? If you wish, you may change your mind. Is your choice definite? Good; Do not change your mind now".

Thought projecting is not too hard. You can do it if you try. Make an effort to send the thought to me. Without speaking—try to tell me the symbol of your card. You know, you would make a good mindreader. That thought was very clear;''

Place another double backed card on the stand with the red side facing the audience, and put the rest of the pack away.

"So that the audience can compare and see if my prediction is correct, tell them—what symbol did you select?"

Place the card mentioned on the stand. DO NOT LOOK AT-THE BACK OF THE DOUBLE FACED CARDS.

"Let me recapitulate—I placed a red card here. Then I projected the image of that card to this man. The image he received was this blue card with the symbol—on it. Then we reversed the procedure. This man projected a thought to me. The image I received was this red card. The symbol he sent to me was this blue backed card. When I turn this stand around, you will see that both predictions are one hundred per cent correct.:

LITTLE BIRD TUNING^ BATTERY CHANGE AND SWITCH ARRANGEMENT

The Little Bird fills the need for a tiny voice and tone receiver. It can whisper secrets in the ear of the mentalist from a turban, blindfold, or my lady's hair-do. It is 2 inches by lh inches, and may vary in thickness from h inch to three-quarters, depending upon the type of mounting. In a custom construction, it may be thinner and longer, or, wider and longer and thinner, etc. It weighs a mere lh oz.

The arrangement is such that the phone may become a part of the set, or, it may be employed away from the set on a cord which makes the BIRD a tiny pocket receiver for out. of the room listening. It could, for example, become the famous wrist radio of Dick Tracy, and strap on the arm. The BIRD was tested recently for battery life. I ran over a week before exhibiting any battery wear. This was a continuous operation, night and day.

WARNING; Observe correct polarity with any transistor devices. A battery reversal can ruin transistors.

A svitch is enclosed x/ith each receiver. It can be attached for on-off, or the switch wires may be connected (for uses outside a blindfold) and the set may be turned on and off by removing and inserting the battery. The sxvitch may be turned on through the cloth of a blindfold. In a hair-do, it is advisable to let the set run. This costs perhaps 1/4«? per hour. The audio may be disconnected from the ear, after the show, and the set battery removed when the receiver is taken from 'the hair later.

Note that the receiver must be tuned in the position in which it is to be used. For example, if it is to be used in a blindfold and it is so mounted, it should be tuned while pressed aga-nst the ear and forehead. The same procedure would apply to the hair-do mount, or the pocket use. Once tuned, the receiver will hold its setting., since the battery voltage does not change - drop - as rapidly as with battery operated tube sets.

A small tuning stick is enclosed. It will fit into the center of the hex shaped core of the small upright tuning coil. Turn the core SLOWLY with the signal source turned on. The signal source may be a BEACON, or a tone transmitter. Adjust the core for maximum audio in the earphone. If the signal is lost, screw the coil down tc the bottom of the coil - never too hard. If it wedges, a stronger tool will be needed to free it. To find the signal, bring the core outward, unscrewing it until the signal comes in. Adjust, again, to the strongest (loudest) point.
