The Twentieth Century Newspaper Test

Stuart Robson

This is the best and cleanest way of presenting a newspaper test yet conceived. The method for securing the numbers which in turn are used to indicate a column and ad is most disarming and highly original. In book tests and effects of this nature I have always objected to the introduction of outside and otherwise foreign objects such as cards, dice, counters, numbered papers and whatnot that immediately gave the effect an air of preparedness and trickery.

In the case at hand there is nothing ever seen by the audience except the newspaper, and it becomes a means unto itself. That is what gives the entire stunt a veritable air of nonchalance and fairness.
