An unusual occurence (1)

‘Ye gods and little fishes!’ cried Victor, ‘what the devil’s going on in here?’ He burst into the room where Frank sprawled upon the floor, pondering one of the Kleine Schriften der Österreichischen Akademie with more than his usual mirth. Victor halted at the door and looked down at Frank, aghast. Then he bolted from the room without waiting for an answer. From this Frank deduced Victor’s x-ray vision was acting up again.1
