In a display of remarkable powers of memory, Dr. Bruno Furst, Czecho slovakian refugee, demonstrated un usual ability in the “tricks” an able memory can perform at a combined meeting of Districts 22 and 23 of the Ohio Retail Lumbermen’s asso ciation Tuesday night in the Walnut Grill. The meeting here, attended by lum bermen of eleven counties, was a tribute to Forrest Steinman, of Bluff ton, president of the Ohio Retail Lumbermen’s unit, and was held in connection with the 50th anniversary celebration of the Steinman Brothers Lumber Co. “Men in business, with a thousand items to remember daily in their sell ing and advertising, can always use improvements in their faculty of memorizing,” Dr. Furst declared. Memory can be improved simply by consciously writing or reading, with that faculty in view, the speak er continued. Most persons are in one of two classes so far as memorizing ability is concerned. Seventy-five per cent of any group will be eye-minded and the remaining 25 per cent are ear minded, Dr. Furst pointed out. He then went on with his demon stration of memory prowess, includ ing “tricks of the trade” that have an everyday utility. Twenty-four cards, bearing the symbols of playing cards and articles of common usage, were attached in irregular order on a large board. These were selected at random from a large stack of cards. Dr. Furst did not look at the board, but as each card was put in place he was vnxAG. I At Area Lumbermen’s Meeting Here told of its location. At the close of the test, he repeated from memory the exact order of cards from top to bottom, criss-cross, by rows, or any other form asked for by the audi ence. In conclusion he asked for a list of 20 names, which he repeated in ord er then backwards, and concluded by beginning in the middle of the list and naming the cards each way. F. F. 4.-F. H. A.
