Answer:  LIGHT HOUSE

(At least this kid wasn’t trying to use hydrogen!  Don’t kids do the darnedest things?  I guess most of our great scientists and inventors started out as curious kids.  I remember trying to make things in my backyard out of old bicycle parts and an Erector Set.  Clearly, I was no mechanical genius.

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  Two of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve seen both “voseh” and “vitreh” before.  The answer letter layout is a nicely cryptic ten letter jumble.  Nothing obvious about it.  Funny how it almost resembles a German word.  The Zeppelin, LZ 129 Hindenburg, was designed to primarily use Helium gas, but it was so hard to produce and expensive to get – and there were also U.S. export restrictions – that they used hydrogen gas instead.  Hydrogen is extremely flammable, but the designers thought they had it under control.  Like the Titanic, nature found a way to overcome human ingenuity, and say:  See!  I told ya!

Cool cartoon from our guest Jumbler, John Hambrock.  I’m not familiar with this comic, but all newspapers have their limitations.  Looks to be amusing.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
