October 1934

Conceived, written and published by Theo Annemann. The Jin* is not a magazine, neither is it a crusading sheet with a chip on each shoulder and a wood.pile in reserve. All offices, both in an artistic and business sense are held by one individual who has but a single thought'In mind, that of supplying magicians and mystery entertainers at large with practical effects and useful knowledge.

Vhere the editor (also owner and head office boy) finds his own knowledge lacking,he steps out with the ever at work Kinds of the country's best amateurs and prof ess ion-als and therefrom gleans the necessary information to keep his brain child on an even keel and prevent lopsidedness from one track logic.

The tricks will be good, the hints.tips, and miscellaneous matter that may creep in will be practical.and above all,the price will remain a fraction of a fraction In comparison with the value of the information disclosed.

At times' the grammar may be bad,but on other occasions we can assure you that it will read unusually well. We do not believe in promises or over enthusiastic statements of things to come. The fraternity at large is respectfully requested to accept The Jiirx from month to month with no boosting or fanfare,but simply on the merits of what it contains for what it costs.

A1 Baker has said that if a person can get one trick out of an issue it costs them only a quarter; if they find two they can use,the cost is twelve and a half cents each. However.,if they can f ind use for all three, then 'tis a rare bargain.

So with a lifted glass instead of a broken bottle I dedicate instead of christen the first copy of The Jinx
