Magnetic Harmony

by EDDIE JOSEPH

This is the second release in E. J.'s "Sensational Subtlety" Series. It has a wide and varied range of presentation possibilities and the secret depends upon another subtle E.J. principle, used by him in many ways for a number of years. This fool proof system is easily learnt even at the first reading, and there is no digital manipulation or memory involved!

Five different presentation angles are described and explained below, and for repeat dates you can use the identical system, but create a fresh effect each time!

'MAGNETIC HARMONY" can be offered as a convincing sample of one's power to look into the near future. Can also be demonstrated as an illustration of "Sensual Touch," "Veiled Vision", "Foremonition," or even as a visual example of pretended digital dexeterity. Read on and be amazed at this truly Breathtalking Origination.

THE FIVE EFFECTS OF "MAGNETIC HARMONY"

Effect ONE: Two people assist. You write two messages and hand out. The two persons then select a card each. The messages When checked prove to be the names of the selected cards.

NOTE:—MESSAGES WRITTEN BEFORE THE CARDS ARE SELECTED. YOU DO NOT TOUCH THE CARDS AT ALL. CARDS NOT FORCED. REGULAR PACK OF 52 CARDS USED. NOT A SINGLE MOVE REQUIRED BY MAGICIAN. AS A MATTER OF FACT THE CARDS MAY BE SELECTED WHILE MAGICIAN IS OUT OF THE ROOM. THE SYSTEM MAKES THIS POSSIBLE.

Effect TWO:—ANY PERSON TAKES ANY CARD OF HIS OWN CHOICE OUT OF PACK FROM ANY PART he chooses and hands to magician. Magician writes the name of another card on this. The message card is then replaced in pack and lost. When the helper divides pack into halves at any point he likes and deals from both packets together . . . the card that turns up at the same time as the message card proves to be the one predicted by performer.

NOTE—ALL PERFORMER DOES IS TO WRITE HIS MESSAGE. HE DOES NOT TOUCH CARDS AT ALL! EVERYTHING IS DONE BY HELPER. NO FORCINC INVOLVED.

Effect THREE:—Assistant picks up any magazine out of many or may use his own. The magazine is opened to a page and a line read in secret. You immediately know what he read. The choice of page and line made under very fair conditions.

Effect FOUR:—Spectator cuts pack into halves. One half is placed in another person's pocket. After the first part is out of sight and control, performer removes one card from the remaining packet. When the first packet is examined the matching card of the one removed is found REVERSED !

Effect FIVE:—WHILST PERFORMER IS GENUINELY BLINDFOLDED OR DEPRIVED OF HIS VISION BY SOMEONE PLACING HIS HANDS OVER HIS EYES a volunteer fakes out two matching cards from pack, say the two red 5's. While still blindfolded the rest of cards placed on performers hand, and he extracts the other two matching cards of like value i.e. the two black 5's. This is but one of the astounding things of this effect. NOTE. PERFORMER IS NOT TOLD THE VALUE OF THE FIRST PAIR EXTRACTED, YET HE MATCHES IT ! !

Personally I thi nk Magicians are very fortunate in having such an astute brain at their disposal. It ¡s not given to many of us to invent such miracles as this, but it is certainly possible for most astute magicians to recognise the right thing when they see it.

IN THESE DAYS, WHEN TIME IS SHORT, FEW HAVE TIME TO STUDY. REMEMBER—NO SLEIGHTS, NO MEMORY WORK, NO GIMMICKS, NO TRICK CARDS.

This Month's Cover Picture.

Those of you who know George Blake, know that there is scarcely anyone in the business who is more entitled to fame on account of his numerous achievements, yet anyone more quietly unassuming it would be hard to find.

George started in Magic over 45 years ago (!!!) and his chief hobby ever since has been to try and knock the snags out of any awkward routines, to streamline magic and make it easy, and consequently more presentable.

Those of you who have seen him perform know that for himself at least, these aims have been accomplished, and magic in George's hands looks so easy, and everything seems to run so smoothly that every denouement is doubly surprising.

Considering what he says about his time in magic, one would think that he must haye been doing it in his cradle . . . at least he scarcely looks much older than this. He assured me however that he was a Member of the I.B.M. since its first year and winner of the Fleming Award (actually the first one awarded for mentalism) for the best Mental effect to appear in the Linking Ring Parade for 1949/50. Also he has been a Member of the British Ring since its first year of founding 25 years ago, and now is Honorary Life Member. He served as a member of the Committee for the past four years and on numerous occasions previously, and was Editor of "The Budget" for two years.

George has always been very keen on Magical Societies, and I suppose these gave him ample scope for developing his original ideas, and presenting them to his fellow members. He belonged to the Leeds Magical Society for over 20 years and was winner of the Society's jewel Number One for Original Magic, in 1933. Incidentally he was Secretary for two years. About this time he ran a private magazine called "Entre Nous" which reached 15 issues, but the War interfered with its progress, due to the fact that he was working for ENSA for three years, and it was discontinued.
