[OS X TeX] %!TEX TS-program = tex

Hello all,

I would like to force TeXShop to typeset a particular document with  
TeX + Ghostscript always, so according to the TeXShop help menu, I  
have added the following line to the top of my document:

%!TEX TS-program = tex


However, when I try to typeset the document, I get the following  
error message:

### This is /usr/local/teTeX/bin/i386-apple-darwin-current/simpdftex,  
Version $Revision: 2.18 $
### /usr/local/teTeX/bin/i386-apple-darwin-current/tex Smith and  
Humphrey 2007.tex
This is TeX, Version 3.141592 (Web2C 7.5.5)
(./Smith and Humphrey 2007.tex
! Undefined control sequence.
l.3 \documentclass

If I remove the line %!TEX TS-program = tex, the document with  
typeset fine if I manually choose Tex and Ghostscript as my engine.

Any ideas?
