On-Air Challenge

You are given clues that end in a six-letter word. Rearrange the letters in the last word to get the answer to the clue. For example, given "Jewels a pirate buries," the answer would be "rubies."

Challenge From Last Week

From Ken Marx, of Mount Vernon, N.Y.: Think of a nine-letter word with no repeated letters. The letters in the odd positions (the 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th and 9th positions) are vowels. All five vowels, A, E, I, O and U, appear once each in some order. What word is this?

Answer: Inoculate

Winner: Phyllis Kavett of Union, N.J.

Next Week's Challenge

From Merle Regal: Kris Kristofferson's last name starts with his four-letter first name. Can you name a famous American whose last name ends with his four-letter first name? Hint: The last name has seven letters.
