CROSSWORD PUZZLE
No. 5

Unfortunately, no correct solution to the last Crossword Puzzle was received by the Editor, and no prize can be awarded. We should like to encourage all those who solve the puzzles—and there appear to be quite a number—to send them in. Unless a good number of solutions is received, we shall have to discontinue awarding a prize. For this puzzle, however, a prize of one guinea for a correct solution will still be given. If more than one correct solution is received, the winner will be determined by lot.

CLOSING DATE: 10 JANUARY, 1954.
