"As far as the transmitter is concerned, it is necessary that the thought be clear, uncompli cated by confused 'scatter thought', concentrated upon, and that it be directionally beamed to the receiver.

"The rea son for this is that I cannot read the thoughts of a person who re fuses to concentrate, or opposes me. When disharmony exists, the impressions I receive are chaotic, hazy, disjointed and result in par tial answers or complete failure; and invariably, at the. start of my performances, 90 or more of those present are skeptics and 10 believers I might add that at the end of the show, those figures are usually reversed." "In one last word about my abil ity", he finishes by saying,' "I want to make it clear that my ability has no connection whatso ever with the supernatural I ab hor the implication that it has, and make a point of disclosing tricks of fakers and so called 'me diums'. Any five year-old child can duplicate my most amazing exploits after twenty years of practicing concentration." The University Psychology De partment refused comment on Dunninger's claims.
