A beautiful set of four pictures, one of a prisoner, the other three of empty jail cells, silk screened in four vivid colors on durable white cardboard stock measuring 9" x 14" is shown to the audience. A story is told how this prisoner was one of the hardest men to keep in jail.
One of the empty jail cells is placed aside, and a game is begun with the children to see if they can keep track of the prisoner. Although you have three cards left in your hand, no matter which card the audience selects as the "prisoner" card it will be of an empty jail cell. Even as the cards are eliminated one by one the audience will not be able to find the prisoner.
Finally the prisoner is shown to be secured behind bars on the first card that was removed even though the card was placed in a large envelope which remained in full sight of the audience.
There are many different lessons that can be taught to children with the theme that "CRIME DOESN'T PAY".
