Occult Science Course Fails to Locate Brains

San Francisco, June 24 – Rushing up to Policeman J. Connell in the City Hall, Sam Sanko announced with hectic tones that some unprincipled thief had gone and stolen his brains. Sanko, who is an Austrian, declared that the robbery had taken place four years ago, and that he had taken a correspondence course in occult science in the hope of regaining the missing parts, but to no avail. Policeman Connell concluded that Sanko had diagnosed his own case very well, and so escorted him to the detention hospital.” (The Washington Herald, 25 June 1918)
