Visual Description:  Mightier than the sword . . . and nearly as expensive!

SURNP  =  SPURN,  EFTUL  =  FLUTE,  PAWNEO  =  WEAPON,  VOICEN  =  NOVICE   —   Giving us:  SNFTEWEPOVI

Clue/Question:  Easy to turn a fifty into.

Answer:  A PEN AND TWO FIVES

(I can see some having trouble with today’s puzzle.  Fortunately, my paper carries the full-sized version of the Jumble.  Some newspapers reduce their comics and puzzles by a third, or more.  And, for the folks who get those papers they may have had some trouble reading the price tag on the pen.  Not to mention the 5s on the bills!  There’s nothing like the feel of a good pen in your hand.  But, I’m not the kind of guy to shell out big bucks for something that I consider, basically, a simple tool.  I’m the same way about watches.  I admire a fine watch, but I’m just as happy with a Timex or Casio.  As long as it works.  My wife, on the other hand . . . )   —   YUR
