On-Air Challenge

Each sentence conceals the name of a tree in consecutive letters. For example, given, "Use soap, please," the answer would be "apple."

Last Week's Challenge

From Merl Reagle: Take the letters in the name of cellist Yo Yo Ma, and rearrange them to form the initial letters of a familiar six-word question. What is the question?

Answer: "Are you out of your mind?"

Winner: Carl Courant of New York City

Next Week's Challenge

Name two girls' names that are anagrams of each other, and both start with the letter "C." The answer should be a well-mixed anagram, with more than two letters switched in one name to get the other.
