How I Improved My Memory In One Evening

The Amazing Experience of Victor Jones

"Of course I place you! Mr. Addison Sims of Seattle.

"If I remember correctly-and I do remember correctly-Mr. Burroughs, the lumberman, introduced you to me at the luncheon of the Seattle Rotary Club three years ago in May. This is a pleasure indeed! I haven't laid eyes on you since that day. How is the grain business? And how did that amalgamation work out?"

The assurance of the speaker-in the crowded corridor of the Hotel McAlpin-compelled me to turn and look at him, though I must say it is not my usual habit to "listen in," even in a hotel lobby.

"He is David M. Roth, the most famous memory expert in the United States," said my friend Kennedy, answering my question before I could get it out. "He will show you a lot more wonderful things than that before the evening is over."

And he did.

As we went into the banquet room the toastmaster was introducing a long line of I got in line and guests to Mr. Roth. when it came my turn. Mr. Roth asked. "What are your initials. Mr. Jones. and telephone your business connection and number?" Why he asked this I learned later, when he picked out from the crowd the 60 men he had met two hours before and called each by name without a misWhat is take. he more. named each man's business and telephone number, for good measure.

I won't tell you all the other amazing things this man did except to tell how he callled back, without a minute's hesitation. long lists of numbers, bank clearings, prices. lot numbers, parcel post rates and anything else the guests had given him in rapid order.

When I met Mr. Roth again-which you may be sure I did the first chance I got-he rather bowled me over by saying. in his quiet. nrodest way:

"There is nothing miraculous about my remembering anything I want to remem ber whether it be names, faces. figures. facts or something I have read in magazine.

"Mr. Jones," he replied. "I can teach you the secret of a good memory in one evening. This is not a guess, because I have done it with thousands of pupils. In the first of seven simple lessons which I have prepared for home study. I show you the basic principle or my whole system and you will find it-not hard work as you might fear—but just like playing a fascinating game. I will prove it to you.'"

He didn't have to prove it. His Course ddd; I got it_the_very next day from his publishers. the Independent Corporation.
