at work. Then she went to a
movie and passed out again. She
took to swooning in the street
when people spoke to her.
The family doctor decided the

He put in a call for Casson,
who by now was playing in
music hall in London. By phone
from 120 miles away Casson told
the girl to fall into a sound sleep

At the end of the appointed
time Joyce awoke, thanked Cas
