Volume 12 includes an article from the ongoing column on magic and magicians in Australia, and the announcement that Max Malini has become the 1000th member of the SAM. There is also a list cities announcing where Houdini would be appearing on the Orpheum Circuit, from December 31st to May 13th, as well as a wonderful article by T.Nelson Downs about working on the same bill with Houdini in Germany, then seeing him perform again 21 years later. A detailed description of Houdini’s act as performed for more than 500 children in San Francisco is very interesting because he does the Egg Bag, Die Box, and other non-escape magic. Then comes an account of the 19th annual SAM banquet, with the largest attendance to date. Naturally there are editorial notes by Houdini, and the minutes of the monthly meetings.
