CROSSWORD PUZZLE
No. 6

Through the late appearance of the previous issue, we are unable to announce the winner of the last competition. This will be done next time. Some people have been suggesting that our Crossword puzzles were too hard to solve. The present puzzle is much simpler than the preceding ones. It is hoped that we shall now receive more solutions than previously. A guinea prize is again offered for a correct solution. If more than one correct solution is received, the winner will be determined by lot.

Closing date: 15th February, 1954
