nt, to sit up and beg in his best "doggy" manner. Since Dr.
anz Polgar, mental wizard and hypnotist, presented a preview
his "Fun with the Mind" show in Club 600, many South Quad
idents have been trying to hypnotize their friends.

DECORATIONS for the dance
again this year will be an authen-

bour-Waterman Gymnasiums. It
will be modeled after the Inland
Empire, in the Land of the Big
Trees, which was Paul Bunyan's
legendary home.
Two hundred red pines were
cut for the occasion on Univer-
sity-owned property in Saginaw
Cider and donuts will be served
at the dance. Last year they were
served at the "longest bar in Ann

DR. POLGAR'S performance,
consisting of three parts, will be-
gin with memory demonstrations.
Mind reading will be fea-
featured next on the program.
Earlier this week Polgar issued
a challenge to students by prom-
ising the South Quad Council
that they may hide his check for
the performance somewhere in
the audience.
Guided only by thought impulses
by a member of the audience, the
"mental wizard" will attempt to
find the check.

IF HE IS unsuccessful in his
search, this money will also be giv-
en to the Fresh Air Camp.
The finale and featured part
of the show is devoted to hypno-
tism, Polgar's favorite part of
the show. Under hypnosis peo-
ple lose many of their inhibitions
and perform unexpected stunts
at his bidding.
Demonstrating post - hypnotic
suggestion, Polgar last week had
one South Quad resident deliv-
er an ardent plea to "give to the
Red Cross" to the assembled au-
dience. Immediately following 'this
speech, the subject, to his great
surprise, gave his interpretation
of one of the well-known cigar-
ette commercials.
Since coming to the United.
States 16 years ago, Polgar esti-
mates he has put more than a mil-
lion people to sleep, most of them
with their willing assistance.
He holds degrees of doctor of
psychology and doctor of econom-
ics acquired in his native Hungary.
