A news editor discovers that whatever headline is printed on an old press comes true. The first time he notices one of his employees makes a typo changing 'mountain lion kills two' to 'fountain lion kills two' and when outside by a construction crew a crane breaks off a fountain lion statue which crushes two of the men. He thinks that it must be just a bizarre coincidence so he tests it and it works once more.
