A notched wooden stand for holding cards as they are produced.

A good fanning deck with modernistic and colorful back. It is suggested that a can of "FAN-EZ" the poDular powder for making fanning a pleasure be purchased from your magical dealer.

It is suggested that the performer make up and lay out before him, as is illustrated, the various parts. Such action will make much easier the assembling of the parts, or at least, the explaining of it all.

Lay card #3 (blank bridge) before you, face down. Take envelope E (Little Duke size) and paste it on the back of the blank card about 3/4 inch down from the upper left corner with the slot to the left. Result — sketch T.

I have given, on the next page, all of the positions for the beginnings of the various fans. The thumb positions are oorrect In each oase. Next to the last to be noted are the arrows indicating the direction of the fans.

If the performer is wearing an evening dress low out vest he may pin the gimmiok to his ooat - the gimmick facing the same way.
