Magic Show 'To Feature Prince Zogi Prince Zogi, aloeafing (m the steage in le,r.son wLth his TV Variety Revue at the Ohe- hey High School a.udtorium in Cheney, on Oct. 17 t 8 p. m. under the auspices of Che- n'ey Lions Club, ,has rally beat tbe fabled Hindu fakixs at their own, according to C. A. Frank, director of the show. Frank says that while every- ,one has heard of the famed Hindu rope trick, supposed ,to have ben seen by the. first tourists to visit India, and now known to be just a figment of someone's imagirmtior there is truI, y one stunt actually per- formed by the Indian m,edi- cants that does rate a lift of the eyebrows, and t'ht is the "growing" of the tree. The Hi.du srtarts with a tiny seedling ,and while covering nd uncovering it, firmlly de- velops the sprig into a small man,go busch. This bit of wiza'dry, accoxd- ing to Frank, was the in,spia- tion that sparked the latest production in the twoho,u performan:e of the TV Variety Revue. In this newest act, Zogi shows a large tree to be completely bare of fruit. W'hi't:e a thusmd pairs,oees watc..aact .wit3mut ,- ing the tree, Zogi g0ws real .oranges that develop from tiny buds to the ull blown fruit in less time than it tak to tell. Even the skeptics are cn- vinced as Zogi cuts the orang- es from the tree and tosses the frttit into the audience for consumption. All this  accom- plished on a brflKanly lighted stage, and without covering the tree. The ,oanges are not only edible, but they are the sweetest, juciest oranges pos- sible to produce. How does Zo, do it? Fr, ank won't tell, s he says the sec- ret belongs only to Z,oi. It may be science, or modern chemistry. It may be a bit of illusion, but whatever it is, it it somettfing new and enr- tairfirg, as 'are all the acts in this new stage show. Thee w'ill be music, comedy and n.ov- elty acts, something to please everyone is promised. Much interest has been manifest, and lrge crowds are expected .to attend this one-time only per- refinance.
