You'll need six (6) blank checks. I managed to extract mine from my bank only after explaining what I needed them for. It's amazing how easily bank personnel can make you feel like John Dillenger. Number the checks in the upper right hand corner, one (1) through six (6). Now, make out the checks as previously outlined, signing each check Jack Benny. I even used a check writer to give the checks a more authentic appearance. Make check number one payable to Richard Nixon in the amount of $7.00. Check number two payable to Phyllis Diller in the amount of $3.00. Check number three payable to Jimmy Carter in the amount of $18.00. Check number four to Telly Savalas in the amount of $10.00. Check number five payable to Lee Majors in the amount of $25.00 and check number six to Dean Martin in the amount of $35.00.
Also needed are two (2) predictions. One should read as follows: You will select the $3.00 check which jack left to Phyllis Diller. The other should read, You will select the $25.00 check which jack left to Lee Majors. Make a double envelope as shown in the accompanying illustration. This is the locking type double envelope created by the late Hen Fetch of my hometown of Baltimore, Maryland. Use a large manila type envelope approximately 5" deep x 11" in length. After inserting the separator panel... place the $25.00 prediction in the compartment backing up to the address side. Now, tuck in the flap of the envelope, locking the compartment containing the $25.00 prediction shut. Fold and insert the $3.00 prediction in the other compartment. The predictions can be boldly written on large 8-1/2" x 11" sheets of paper. At the conclusion of the effect...if the $3.00 prediction is required, simply instruct the spectator to remove the folded sheet of paper in the envelope. Because of the tucked in flap, he can only reach the prediction paper you want him to. In the event the $25.00 prediction is required, you retrieve the envelope and proceed to open the flap...after which you reach into the secret compartment and remove the $25.00 prediction. The folded sheet is handed to the spectator to unfold and read. (Note: The handling of the Fetch envelope should be credited to Phil Goldstein who used same in his fabulous Coupon Caper.) Next, you should print the following on the outside address side of the prediction envelope:
1. PHYLLIS DILLER
2. RICHARD NIXON
3. JIMMY CARTER
4. TELLY SAVALAS
5. DEAN MARTIN
6. LEE MAJORS
Arrange the six checks in the following order using the check number in the upper right hand corner: 4-1-5-2-6-3. Place them in a wallet.
