Men, women, and children alike are held in profound bewilderment as they are led through the maze of the evening's mysteries. Whether the vanishing wand or pumping water through the arm of an assistant, the apparent severing of the head of Mrs. Campbell, or in the final presentation and production from a giant phantom tube, Mr. Campbell is always the magician and one must realize they are being entertained by a master performer. Mr. Campbell is being routed through the Collins Entertainment Bureau of Rochester, New York.— Linking Ring Magazine. This past year it has been my privilege to attend the performances of more magicians than in any other twelve months period. Those whose acts and shows which particularly stood out are: Blackstone, Loring Campbell, Cardini, Dante, Dorny, Ade Duval, etc. Loring Campbell stands out in my mind especially for his effectively agreeable manner. —Editor, Sphinx, January, 1941.
