Synopsis:
A scientist uses a Phantom Zone-like projector to banish people he doesn't like to another world, but a light indicates where the beam connects both worlds, and one of the men returns. He shoves the scientist through the aperture where he is attacked and killed by the natives. Other victims rush forward hoping to escape, but the man switches off the device. The story ends with the man indecisive about turning the beam back on and rescuing the other victims and possibly allowing native attackers to pour through, or leaving it off and condemning them to die. He addresses the reader directly and asks "What would you do?"
