N.A.M.S.—On March I3th/i4th, the tenth Meeting of the Committee of Management took place at the Bell Hotel, Leicester. Leicester Magic Circle were the hosts, and as such they lived up to their reputation. At the meeting, among other things, it was reported that the " Days of Magic " had raised for St. Dunstan's nearly two thousand pounds (about a hundred pounds up on the previous year). This is not an awe-inspiring total when it is realised that two local Societies (Nottingham and Leicester) were responsible for a quarter of the amount. One of the difficulties that local societies have to contend with is publicity. This is needed in force to bring a contribution up to the five figure mark, and we feel sure that in their election of Wilfred Tyler as Press Publicity Officer, N.A.M.S. have made a wise choice. The question of reviews took up a great deal of time at the meeting, and again we feel that in giving the present Editor, Charles Harrison, a free hand, the Committee have shown wisdom. There are many who grumble about the slow progress made by N.A.M.S., in fact many query whether there is progress at all. We would reply that things designed for permanence and also the benefit of man, can never be achieved quickly ; our own opinion is that N.A.M.S. is going slowly along the right road. The big show in the evening was a splendid bit of organisation, both in front of and back stage. Thank you very much, Leicester !

CRUELTY.—Plenty of conjurers are cruel to their audiences. The latter, however* have a remedy, namely that they can walk out. Such conjurers harm only conjuring. We hope, however, that a special Hell awaits those who produce doves from a changing bag. We are more than surprised at one publisher who seems to take pride in the fact that such an effect appeared in one of his publications.

CURRENT EFFECT.—We should like to express our thanks to Mr. C. Steffensen (the well-known Danish writer and dealer) for permission to include " Ultra-Anti-Gravity " in this issue. Those interested in obtaining the necessary fake, should contact Mr. Steffensen. His address is Ludtoftegade 118, Copenhagen, Denmark.
