Be sure you're always nice to be the nation's first chlorophyll deodorant tablet and while my mother spoke six languages, English was not one of them!" Lady Doyle was so insulted she packed and left town immediately.

Sir Arthur, protecting his wife, suggested that there might have been some form of intellectual development in the spirit plane to enable the mother to learn English. "After this," Dunninger says, "Sir Arthur, Houdini and I made a 3-way pact: whoever passed away first would try to contact the others. "Now, as sole survivor, I'm left with a 10-word message given me before his death by Houdini. It's in code and I am the only one who knows what it would mean if decoded. This is the message the mediums will try to get from Houdini himself on Halloween Dunninger tells a dramatic story about Hou-dini's death.

Houdini, who had a premonition of his own death, had gone to Detroit. A Horrible Feeling A week or two later, Dunninger, enjoying a bite with Keith Theater manager A. Frank Jones in Washington, felt faint. "I have a horrible feeling," he told Jones, "that Houdini has just passed!" Back at the theater, reporters told them Houdini had just died of peritonitis, the result of a blow struck by a man anxious to win a cash award offered "anyone who could hit Houdini hard enough to hurt him!" Dunninger expects to coach Tony Curtis, who'll play Houdini in the picture. But he'll leave the dangerous stunts to doubles.

"After all," he says, "the public won't expect this youngster to dive off bridges, handcuffed like Houdini, or be lowered in an iron box into a river!" 1 (f 195 Tho Do "too Cilab 1906 Mfn. of Num Drand Drun Md Wlnlwia ViMniM PICTURE CREDITS parade When a boy's heart is set on trains, Ana noma nnH one nnlv stands out Lionel Covor, 9, Davo Proion; 2, 11-19, Allan Gould of Graphic House; 4 (strip), U.S. S.
