Points To Remember

Always leave the blue pasteboard card box and red pasteboard cardbox nonchalantly around as this psychologically registers the face that two decks are constantly in use.

'When doing effect //2, place blue deck of cards in your pocket surreptitiously. Only use poker size cards as they fit snugly and noise will be avoided. Other effects possible, such as using cigarettes or roll of bills, or a jumping snake, etc. , instead of having box empty for effect #2.

When finishing effect #2, place red deck inside leather case and away you go. Many other effects are possible. Have fun!

ABBOT'S IMPROVED VERSION "THE LAST CARD" (Abbott's Magic Mfg. Co.)

A regular deck is used. Sixteen cards all the same are loaded in base. After the deck has been shuffled, hold deck in left hand. Pick up stand and place it in left hand directly over shuffled deck.. Second or third finger is curled up under stand alongside edge of sixteen cards. After you have talked about the different colors, etc. take the stand away with right hand, thus adding the sixteen cards to deck.

We have proved this to be an intensely mystifying trick, and if any fault can be found in the trick, it is the fact that it is so easy to perform— but don't let that influence you. Do it and let the audience be the judge.

Suggested forms of Patter: nAlthough I now use a deck of cards, this is not a card trick. I first need a subject. Will you assist, Sir? Thank you." (Fan cards and shuffle, etc.) You know as well as I do that hypnotism is illegal in this state, Therefore, if I should hypnotize you and put you to sleep, or have you perform different tests, I would be breaking the law. But I can hypnotize you to the extent of controlling your very thought and that Is what I intend doing. The deck of cards has been freely shuffled and I now deal out 16 cards. You choose one and take careful note of its value and suit. We now mix your card with the rest of them, so that we have 16 cards, one of which is yours.

"The next phase of this experiment is- to separate the 16 cards into groups of four. I warn you that those colors have not been picked haphazardly. There is a reason for each color and its particular position on the Stand. You will apparently have free selection, but regardless of how you try to oppose me mentally, the last card left on the stand will be your card.

TEL-A--COLOP- CARDS Originated by Robert Fillman

This is a real :gem" for impromptu or off-hand or press demonstration and I strongly recommend it.

Five different colored cards and five small envelopes, such as used for paying salaries, are used. Spectator directed to decide on one of the colors —think of it 1/2 minute. Then to pick that card up and turn it over — face down or upside down. Then place all the cards, each card in a separate envelope. This is done while performer turns his back. Performer takes envelopes, holds them to his forehead, and "mentally" discovers which color was selected!

Special cards, indetectably "prepared" are used. Cards look identical on both sides but are prepared so that they will bend easily one way and not the other way. Consequently,- when performer takes envelopes and holds them to forehead, he can notice which way the card gives the greatest resistance. It bends easy one way and more stiffly the other and is detectable while still inside the envelope. When cards are dealt out on the table, five in a row, each color different — simply deal the cards with the "resistant" side upward. Place envelope with flap side uppermost or opening side uppermost. Spectator will naturally slip the cards in envelopes quickly as possible all the same way. THIS IS A REAL HONEY FOR AN I IIP ROMP TU EFFECT AND I HAVE SEEN IT WORKED BY MACK MURRAY WHO WAS GETTING $1,300.00 FOR 9 DAYS AT A HOME SHOW AT SPRING GARDEN HILLS, FLORIDA, WHO

USED IT TO MYSTIFY THE MANAGER AND PUBLICITY MAN OF THE EVENT — REPEATEDLY.
