HOUDINI TO BE BURIED IN 'STUNT' CASKET
DETROIT. Oct. 31.â€”Houdini's body will rest in a special airtight bronze coffin, which he recently had made to prove his contention that anyone could live without air for over an hour if they did not allow fright to interfere.
It was Houdini's express wish that he be buried in this coffin.
Houdini's body will leave here on the "Detroiter" for New York at 7:10 Monday night in a special car, which will carry his wife and other members of his family.
