Visual Description:  Major Social Studies test.

NCTAE  =  ENACT,  MOXAI  =  AXIOM,  YNYAAW  =  ANYWAY,  VINKEO  =  INVOKE   —   Giving us:  ENTXIMANAINOE

Clue/Question:  They studied U.S. history in preparation for the – – –

Social Studies Department at Lincoln Pius X Catholic High School

Answer:  EXAMINENATION

(An exemplary Jumble pun!  An A+ . . . effort and execution!  I figured the second word was NATION, but I wasn’t counting on the first part being a complete word.  It threw me for half a minute.

No new clue words.  But I believe all of the jumbles are new.  I was able to see them all immediately today.  The answer letter layout was a very impressive thirteen letter jumble.  I didn’t find it obvious at all.

Great classroom, or lecture hall, cartoon.  There’s always that one guy that asks that same dumb question!  I gotta get back to the Field of Dreams game!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

What Leo Tolstoy Can Teach Us About Creativity and Productivity | by  Richard P John | TheCreativityToolbox | Medium

In difficult circumstances, always act on first impressions.”   —   Leo Tolstoy

(Except when you encounter a mountain lion, or a bear, out in the wild!  Most people’s first impression is to . . . RUN!  But experts tell us that as soon as you do that they will consider you prey.  Other than that, I suppose Leo’s advice might be sound.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
