Answer:  PRIVATE PROPERTY

(Ehhh!  I think this probably could have been worded better, but we’ll give the boys a one day pass on this one.  All of the clue words were old reliables, but all of the jumbles came up as new for me.  I especially liked the ones for “pulsar” and “rather”, but they were all pretty good.  The answer letter layout would have been better had a few of the words been switched around.  As it is now, you can pretty much see an abbreviation for private just a little left of center.  Switching “pulpit” with “invest” would have done the trick.  Fine military-esque cartoon.  I’m sure this put a smile on Mort Walker’s face.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    It was jumbled enough for me Unc. Totally missed the Private abbreviation. Finally found property, then private worked its way in! And three vowel starting words!! Fun Sunday jumbler. LL

    Rita Hiller,

    Intriguing thought. Hmm. Two things come to mind though.

    1. I’d have to look into the trademark implications with Hoyt, Knurek and Tribune. and . . .

    2. Do you really think there’d be much of a market for this kind of thing?

    At one point I had seriously considered saving my completed jumblers, but decided that I had enough stuff I saved!

    hmmm. Figured the answer was private property but got “uptilt” instead of pulpit. Threw me off a bit.

    Anonymous,

    So, you saw two Ts instead of two Ps! Ahh. You scared me for a minute, and I thought there might be two different words from PLIPUT. I’ve been there though. Once you’ve made your mind up, your mind is made up!
