Renowned Hypnotist
Scheduled To Appear

Committee Announces Cast for 1954 JGP


Polgar's "Miracles of the Mind"
Show, to be presented at 8:30 p.m.
Friday in Hill Auditorium, will be
introduced by the Paul McDonough
Merritt (Tim) Green, 1952 cap-
tain of the Michigan Football
Team, will act as master of cere-
monies for the show.

DR. FRANZ J. Polgar, an un-
mysterious, middle-aged man is
taking a lot of the mumbo-jumbo
out of hypnosis. One of the world's
foremost hypnotists and telepath-
ists, the Hungarian-born Polgar
claims no supernatural powers and
refuses to tarnish his demonstra-
tions with side-show histrionics.
Every year he appears before
over 300 audiences in the United
States, leaving them happily be-
fuddled by his implausible feats.
His act is a natural for television
(he has made many guest TV per-
formances), and he expects to
have his own show soon. -
"I must be careful, though,"
Polgar says gravely, "not to put the
ten million people who watch me
to sleep."

POLGAR HAS given over 1,100
programs in the past three years
before outstanding forums, Town
Halls, Unviersities, conventions
and other groups. He performed

DR. POLGAR was so sure of
himself and his master memory
of telepathy when he first took
to the lecture platform in this
country, that while his manager

looked on in horror, he challenged
an audience at the Detroit Town
Hall Forum.
"Hide my check for giving this
performance," he said. "I'll go
outside, and you can send as
many people as you wish to
watch me. If I can't find the
check when I come back, you
can keep it and tonight is all
for fun."
The audience hid- the check
under the hat of a woman seated
in the center of the hall. Polgar
simply asked for a volunteer
known to the audience to give him
mental directions.
Then he hurried down the aisle,
shoved his way past protruding
knees in the particular row, arrived
at the woman and her hat-never
having seen her before-and pro-
duced the check. It took him four'
minutes to' complete the job of
locating one woman in 2,000 to
find his pay for the evening.
Polgar has been challenged to
hide his check for the coming per-
formance at Hill Auditorium.
The Polgar Show co-chairmen
are Dave Gross and Jon Collins,
who have been assisted by their
secretary, Marcia Saltz.
Sub-chairman for the produc-
tion are: tickets, Ron Charfoss;
auditorium, Jim Marvri; publicity,
Barbara Greenfield ! and posters,'
