Comments: From the cover: "A collection of 100 Tips &
Gags, Stunts, etc., to put pep in your program. Items that have
and are being used by leading performers, and many new ones. For
Professional Magicians, Amateur Magicians, Masters of Ceremonies,
Impromptu Workers, and All Types of Entertaining. The Majority of
these items are taken from my note book. A few are original. It is
impossible to give credit to the originators of the various gags,
as no one seems to know where most of them originated. I am
indebted to W.R. Willison of New York city for several of them,
which he uses in his act with huge success."
An example: " If someone asks you to pull a Rabbit out of a Hat.
Borrow a Hat reach in same and pull out a Hair (Hare)"
