Another Erdnase error

Here's an error that I have not seen in any of the lists so far. On page 179, under the heading "TRICKS WITH THE PREARRANGED DECK," he wrote the doggerel for the Eight Kings set-up as follows: "Eight Kings threatened to save Ninety-five Queens from one sick knave." I believe that should be "for one sick knave" as it fits the stack sequence and I've seen it as such in other books i.e. The Amateur Magician's Handbook, page 210, 4th ed., 1982.
