Answer:  CONTAIN HIMSELF

(Hey!  Has Jeff been watching a Tony Curtis marathon, on Turner Classic Movies, or something?  First he gave us “Some Like It Hot”, and today he’s giving us “Houdini”.  Maybe tomorrow we’re getting “The Defiant Ones”.  LOL!  No new clue words today, yet all of the jumbles came up as new.  The answer letter layout was marvelously cryptic.  I don’t think it even hinted at the answer.  Another great period cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    This one was indeed a very cryptic solution. Two seven-letter words with no familiar pattern like -tion or -ing or an obvious cartoon hint. I didn’t give up on it, and thought I would eventually hit on it, but it took me 13 minutes of trial and error, very unusual for a Mon-Sat puzzle for me. Well done guys!
