-====== Number-Limiting Procedure for Book Tests ====== 
-The procedure of having single digits called out, which the performer arranges in descending order to create a free page selection, thus subtly limiting the number of possible pages that can be selected, is included in Boardé's 1950 //[[|Mainly Mental, Volume Two]]//, p. 95. An earlier source yet is likely. Another early description of this limiting force is found in H. G. Cleveland's "Dictionary Test" on p. 59 of //[[|The Linking Ring]]//, Vol. 33 No. 8, October 1953.
