(This is a great pun!  And, it coincidentally coincides with some great memories I’m having this week.  A college friend of mine recently sent me a photo from early spring 1978, of four members of the Lamplighters choral group, of which I was also a member.  We were on tour then in northeast Ohio and Niagara Falls, NY.  The photo was taken with the Niagara river in the background.  I was in the choir only one year, as I had creative differences with the choir master.  I thought we should do more secular pieces, but it was essentially a religious choir.  But, I did like the guy.

No new clue words today, and three of the jumbles are also oldies but goodies.  Only “crneth” came up as new, for me.  I got them all right away.  The answer letter layout was a thriving thirteen letter jumble.  I thought it was suitably cryptic.  The entire setup made getting the final answer fairly easy.

Great cartoon of folks approaching the outside of a church.  The arched, stained glass windows were a nice touch. The guy directing them downstairs looks a lot like the Lamplighters’ choir director, who was there for years and years and years.  Fun Friday Jumble!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Bernard Baruch | Biography, World War I, & Facts | Britannica

If you get all the facts, your judgment can be right; if you don’t get all the facts, it can’t be right.”   —   Bernard M. Baruch

(Bernie was one of the richest men in the country, and an advisor to numerous Presidents.  He always knew how to make a buck, including war profiteering, which may be why he donated so much money to worthy causes.  A little like Alfred Nobel in that way. He also thought that the reparations France and England imposed on Germany, following WWI, were too severe.  Someone should’ve listened to him.  Without Bernie though the U.S. may not have been militarily prepared for World War II.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
