Answer:  SWEEPING REFORMS

(Ooh!  A sneaky, stinky pun!  I didn’t see it right away.  Did this one take you guys a few looks, too?

We actually have a new clue word today, in “ruffle”.  And, four of the clue words appear to be new, with “gennie” and “wordsy” having been used sometime before.  David’s answer letter layout was a spectacular jumble!  I found nothing obvious about it.  I thought the first word was going to end in ING, and then SWEEPING became fairly clear.  The SMERRFO  gave me REFORMS.

Great cartoon.  I liked the school gymnasium scene.  The bleacher seats, the backboard, the P.A. system, and the drinking fountain were all a nice touch.  There were no unnecessary bonus clues.  A very satisfying Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
