Clue/Question:  When Henry Ford wanted to talk to his workers, he’d have them – – –

Answer:  ASSEMBLE

(A marvelous groaner of a pun!  Ford may not have – technically – invented the “assembly line”, but on December 1, 1913 he introduced the first moving assembly line for his Model-T-Ford.  It reduced the time of production of a car from 12 hours to 2 and 1/2 hours!  Revisionists want to downplay his legacy, to satisfy their agendas, but his accomplishments are his accomplishments.  Let’s all move on!

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends, even though it took me quite a while to recognize the first one.  All of the jumbles came up as new, and I almost thought there was an error with “yllys”.  It was even difficult for me to back into it, after solving the final answer!  But, when I finally got it I felt sylly . . . I mean silly!  The answer letter layout was a great eight letter jumble, but because of the great cartoon I was able to get the answer from the latter six letters alone.

The cartoon is a wonderful period piece drawing.  The cars on the assembly line, the old-timey looking factory workers, and a great likeness of a middle aged Henry Ford.  This made for a fun Monday Jumble solve.  Oh, yeah.  It was Ransom E. Olds who “invented” and patented the first assembly line, in 1901.  I’m not exactly sure how Olds’ assembly line worked, but Ford used a conveyor system to move the growing car parts from one assembly station to another, to another, until completion.  To my way of thinking, that is what really constitutes an assembly line!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I really wouldn’t know where to begin looking for something like that, Ken. I have been doing the L.A. Times crossword puzzle, fairly regularly, with great success, and I’m not familiar with this “Jacqueline”. I have a semi-niece named Jacqueline, and she is beautiful, and very successful. As I’ve said, numerous times, on this blog, I’m just a ham and egger. I admit to being smarter than the average bear, because I’m still a kid at heart. I always enjoyed Yogi Bear . . . and Boo Boo. I think you are a wascally wabbit who just likes to play, and that’s okay. I’m always only semi-serious anyway.
