Answer:  DREW ATTENTION

(Oh, yeah.  That’s a groaner.  Even by yer uncle’s standards!  We had no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles are coming up as new, for me.  The answer letter layout made for another great jumble.  There was even a bit of misdirection in the middle of it.  I’m sure some of you thought the first word to the answer might be WENT.  I know I did.  But, then I realized our guys would never make a mistake like that.  The cartoon is very detailed and very amusing.  But, why bring Pastis into this???  Couldn’t the cartoon just as easily have had Hoyt standing behind a kneeling Knurek???  Enquiring minds want to know!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
