Answer:  ASSEMBLE

(A marvelous groaner of a pun!  Ford may not have – technically – invented the “assembly line”, but on December 1, 1913 he introduced the first moving assembly line for his Model-T-Ford.  It reduced the time of production of a car from 12 hours to 2 and 1/2 hours!  Revisionists want to downplay his legacy, to satisfy their agendas, but his accomplishments are his accomplishments.  Let’s all move on!

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends, even though it took me quite a while to recognize the first one.  All of the jumbles came up as new, and I almost thought there was an error with “yllys”.  It was even difficult for me to back into it, after solving the final answer!  But, when I finally got it I felt sylly . . . I mean silly!  The answer letter layout was a great eight letter jumble, but because of the great cartoon I was able to get the answer from the latter six letters alone.

The cartoon is a wonderful period piece drawing.  The cars on the assembly line, the old-timey looking factory workers, and a great likeness of a middle aged Henry Ford.  This made for a fun Monday Jumble solve.  Oh, yeah.  It was Ransom E. Olds who “invented” and patented the first assembly line, in 1901.  I’m not exactly sure how Olds’ assembly line worked, but Ford used a conveyor system to move the growing car parts from one assembly station to another, to another, until completion.  To my way of thinking, that is what really constitutes an assembly line!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
