The worst value in years is "Flash Magic" by Lindhorst, and now advertised to the skies at $10.00. I hate to think v/hat Guy Jarrett would say about it. It is offset printed, with the type so small that even I have difficulty reading it, and the sketches are borrov/ed In substance from, to a great extent, magazine exposes of illusions. Most of .the 100 tricks are described amateurishly In one or two lines only, and the whole thing is stuck into a Woolworth Looseleaf book. There's nothing new in it, and there's no value except for the twenty cent cower. That's the worst review I've ever given anything, but when I saw it, I couldn't help going up in the air. Lindhorst's piano business must be in a bad way.

Direct from Cuba and South -America, he'll have the largest magic show (twelve tons) in the states. --- Bebe Stanton, erstv/hile wife and partner of Norman Fres-cott, is rather on the rocks and wants a partner for the sending end. Frescott and she were together for 12 years, and played the best spots available, and Bebe left top spots with her singing and dancing to go with him. ..'here in the devil is Martin Sunshine? Since he and Betty have called it a day, there might be the makings of a quite perfect combination here. --- Tee-hee Dept.-Sun-

day papers just ran an ad showing Larvo, the Magician at a party. He was asked by one to "make our friend Joe's "B.O." disappearJ" He has "Joe" take a card from the pack, and when "Joe" looks at the card he reads, "A kind friend of yours
