Hi i see the same trick in 2 books, a trick done with a newspaper, you cut the shape of a 3 card selected. The same trick is in :
"the incredible Dr Jacks " page 240, and in the book of Lewis Ganson "unconventional magic" 1955. Pag 50: Tonny Van dommelen´s "front Page Carsds". Ho created the trick? Dr Jacks? Tonny?

The trick in the book Unconventional Magic comes from The Gen, Vol. 11, no. 8, december 1955, and is attributed to Tonny Van Dommelen.

As I haven't The Incredible Dr. Jaks, I can't compare the two tricks but perhaps you have references in this book ?
