One merely plugs the transmitter Into a socket in one room, and the receiver is plugged in In any other room of the house.

Mail box: Oscar Paulson writes from England; "That Sacred Script idea in Jinx No. 45 is excellent. Was ideal at recent Church Show here. I have the Parson the tip beforehand, and he was able to read out the verse as if from memory and greatly impressed his flock."---Prom

Stewart James: "There has been a lot of talk about Newmann's library, but did you remember he listed what it contained in the Linking Ring, Vol 6, No. 5? --- Prom —(censored for betterment of future marital relationships): "Clayton Rawson had a delightful plot In presenting his page 302 July Linking Ring effect.

Effect: (1) The magus has any person select a card from a shuffled red deck, and another select any card from a freely shuffled blue deck. When selected cards are named It le found that both persons have selected the same cards.

(2) The red deck Is shuffled by the spectator and placed In the magician's Inside coat pocket. The other spectator shuffles his blue deck and places it in his own inside coat pocket. This person then reaches in the magician's pocket and removes any card. The magus also removes one card from the deck In spectator's pocket. Once again the selected oards are alike.

(3) The decks are again shuffled by the spectators and a deck placed in each one of the magician's side coat pockets. The magus reaches in each pocket at the same time and removes a card from each deck. These two oards are once more the same.

(4) The decks are again shuffled and each of the spectators places a deck in his own side coat pocket. The magician reaches into their pockets, removing a card from each deck, and still the two cards are alike.

(5) For the climax the spectators reach into each other's coat pocket and remove a card. And to the amazement of all, the two freely selected oards are the same.
