Photo by our columnist show magician Virgil aiming at his wife, Julie, in their "Otic- Fantastic Nigllt" performance for the Society of American Magicians annual show in New Jig Mounts Slides in Glass By IRVING DESFOR AP Newsfealures An unusually simple system for mounting color transparencies between glass and binding the edges quickly and neatly has recently been introduced. The system is called "Combi- Quick" and consists of a unique plastic mounting jig and a set prepared Danish glass, aluminum masks and self-adhesive binding strips to make 50 complete glass slides. Besides the standard 35mm 2x2 inch mounts, sets are available for stiperslides, haK-frame '(or single-frame, as some call it) and Instamatic transparencies according to Hudson Photographic Industries, Irvington-on- Hudson, N. Y. · The simplicity of the system apparent after watching a 'demonstration by someone familiar with it. With deft, sure moves, a slide was mounted in less t h a n 10 seconds. The four edges of the glass sandwich were bound without overlaps, bubbles or bumps. The first step consists of peeling a set of prealipned and cut binding strips with adhesive backs so that the set lies in place on the four-section mounting jig. The jig is turned over that it rests on a foam rubber platform. Next the transparency is positioned on an aluminum foil mask which is folded over and placed b e t w e e n the two-inch squares of orecleatxed jslass. The heart of the system is in the next four moves. The alass sandwich is pushed Sown the center slot of the first groove in the mounting jig until hits the foam rubber base. This acion automaticallv makes contact with (he adhesive binding and wraps it around the first edge neatly and securely. Another glass edge is pushed flown groove number Iwo and the second edge is bound. The third nnd fourth edges fallow in nuick succession and the job is done. The completed glass mounted slide has one white edue so thai it cnn*: he placed pronerlv ,for right-side-un projection. Some care must be taken to insert al' the trnnsnarencies in p r o n e r Viewing direction so thai all Ihe glass mounts are u n i f o r m . An idea to improve the composition of some 35mm slides has been introduced bv Agneko. Maywood, N.J. They're marketing "Cron-It" masks in sets Which include nine different an- peratures. They are on light weight card stock, prescored In center for easy folding t o ' f i t 2x2 inch glass mount?. Any transparency which" has some disturbing element at the sides or bottom or top can. be cropped to eliminale the fault by using one of the nine assorted inner mask openings. Sometimes a slide can be dramatized by making it into an extremely narrow horizontal format. Thus one of the masks resembles a wide-screen picture. Sometimes yon can improve a slide by retaining only the inner heart of it. The nine mask open- ings range from 23mm x to 17mm x 22mm. In addition, for the standard type slide binding -- before Combi-Quick -- Agneko has available a new gold-metalized mylar tape in a dispenser cutting device. It is three- eights inches wide, 300 inches long and is extremely thin strong. Success Is Prison for With Only One Goal: Plato' By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP)--Curbstone comments of a Pavement Plato: Success is the greatest danger to a man with only one dream. The one-dream man, once he gains his goal, is imprisoned by his own achievement. Winning disillusions him. He is like Alexander the Great who, accordng to legend, drank himself to death because there didn't seem much else left worth .doing. Victory is always a menace to the one-track mind. It is a particular peril to the military mind. Adolf Hitler, who did and said many wrong things, was right on one point. That was when he complained that victory made his generals timid. This has been true of most generals in most armies throughout history. Once they win they hesitate ever again to put themselves into a position where they might lose. But success can be a major foe in any line of endeavor--lo Ihe businessman who makes only one financial coup, the actor who has only one oulstand- ing role, the writer who has one good book in his system and then sits barren before his empty-minded typewriter. It is multiplicity of dream, nol singleness of goal that preserves youth. Age, of course, is a hard thing to define. There are all kinds of ways to measure age. There is one's calendar age, one's mental age, one's emotional age, one's physiological age, the age one feels--and the age that other people estimate you to be. There is also the problem of sometimes feeling young at night and like the grandfather ol Methuselah in the morning. It's all rather complicaled. But there is a common point in many lives at which there is no doubt that youth says fare- welt and age.says hello. This is when a man's desire to perform an excellence becomes less important lo him than his mere wish to survive. It is here he ceases to be a potential of struggle and becomes a human robot and a coward. His arteries no longer shout an inside bravery; his veins only whisper to his heart of great and' gathering fears. castle of his being lias been breached not by strangers but by himself. He has pushed own panic button. He can be young again. His own have made him old. The more dreams and hopes you have, the less likely you are to be whipped by the ol one or ruined by the of another. You are too busy with many possibilities to become a victim cither of the despairs of frustration or the corrosive timidity of victory. This is the best recipe for slaying young f believe there is: To prosper as many dreams and endeavors as far you can as long as you can.
