AMONG THE SPIRITS We see all, know ell and can tell all, if ye will but hearken!! See and Hear Materialized Spirits. WEIRD GRIPPING ENTERTAINING EDUCATIONAL HILARIOUS A New Note On The Lecture Platform! Howard Higgins, former Dean of Emerson College, President of the International Platform Association, and member of the Society of American Magicians, has struck a new and overwhelmingly popular note in the presentation of his amusing, informative lecture, Among the Spirits. Dr. Higgins has approached his subject with all the objectivity of a pure scientist, and effectively scuttles the favorite practices of the most unprincipled mediums. Yet, he manages to give his audiences a show that keeps them on the edge of their chairs, at times regales them with laughter, and provides them with sixty minutes* of pure entertainment. This program starts with a simulated seance in which are employed the most popular psychic phenomena of mediumistic fortune-tellers. Slate Writing, Spirit Messages, Spirit Materialization, and Eyeless Phychic Vision are all part of his repertoire. In the latter part of his program he exposes these practices humorously, entertainingly and most convincingly. Widespread interest in the subject makes his program a record breaking attraction everywhere. * Program may be of any desired length.
