From " Hen" Fetsch we have received a charming letter praising the " Miracle" slate. Further than that he has passed on the routine that he is using and which he calls

" MENTAL EPIC "

The effect is this :

Any person, with any book, magazine or newspaper, selects a word and then concentrates on that word. The medium receives his thought waves and writes a word on a slate which is covered. The word is revealed and when the cover is removed the exact word appears on the slate.—You will think of the word signed, " Hen " Fetsch.

This is how the audience remembers the effect. Here is what happens. Have thern turn to any page and underscore, with a pencil, any five words with seven letters or under. This is explained by pointing out the fact that larger words are quite difficult to receive from persons transmitting them for the first time plus the fact they would be too long to write on the slate.

After the words have been underscored, have the person think of the words one at a time. On about the third word say, " That one is coming through with a definite signal." Instruct the person to circle this word and concentrate on it only. You get the word, letter by letter, write it on the slate ? ? ? and cover it with board and clip.

Have the person call out the four words he underscored and write them on the slate allowing the audience to see the writing. Then have the person call out the word he circles and transmitted to you. This you write on the slate. At this point go into your build-up and finally reveal your covered word for the climax. If this isn't a perfect mental effect I will eat my hat. Every move is logical and the complete effect is direct. Give it a try and let me know your opinion.

Thanks a lot, " Hen " and we know that those of our readers who have invested in our " brainchild " will appreciate and use this very fine presentation.

Back to the States goes that stalwart of magic, Tommy Vanderschmidt, who has promised a fine sleight of hand routine for a future number. Tommy sent us along a very nice write-up of the "Pentacle" club show at Cambridge, but by the time we could get it into print it would be past history. From all reports that we have heard, this unique society did put on an entertaining show that brought a variety of first class magic to a University public.

We are looking forward to reading Wilfred Tyler's new book " Playing with Magic" which we hope will see the light of day in time for the British Ring Convention at Hastings. With recent memories of Wilfred putting on an hour's show for a party that we managed, we know that those who like to entertain " Those horrors the Teeny Weenies " will have a mine of information of this (to them) all absorbing subject.

The writer concludes with a note on the natural handling of the gimmick. Excellent value if you are interested in mentalism.

" Prepossessed' by Ron. Baillie (Marketed by Unique Magic Studios, price 15/-).

For the person wanting a most natural prediction effect, we advise him not to pass this by. Ron has taken hold of a weakness in one aid to chicanery and used it as a means to an end in a way that compels great admiration from those who think that magic is something more than a bundle of sticks. The routine comes complete with everything ready to work all nicely fitted into an attractive pocket carrying case at a low price of 15/-.
