 From Vol.6 No.6 Issue 32 in October 1982
Subj:...A Pear-Plexing Problem (S690)
        Page 22
Can you turn this picture into a correctly worked
division problem, by substituting a different digit
from 1 to 9 for each type of fruit?
 
 
Subj:...Cross Currents (S691)
        Page 22
Can you draw a straight line that passes through
exactly seven regions, each of which is a different
color?  Your line must pass all the way through the
figure.
 
 
Subj:...Trying Angles (S692)
        Page 22
There are many triangles in the figure, but only one
of them is equilateral - that is, all its sides (and
all its angles) are equal.  Can you fine it?
 
 
Subj:...Match Play (S693)
        Page 23
By moving four matches in the spiral, can you form
exactly three squares?  In your solution, every match
must be a part of at least one square.
 
 
Subj:...Knots or Not? (S694)
        Page 23
Can you determine which of these pieces of rope are
actually ties in a knot, and which ones will simply
straighten out when their loose ends are pulled?
 
 
Subj:...Knightmare (S695)
        Page 23
In this maze, you must move like a knight in chess -
either two squares horizontally and one square vert-
ically, or one horizontally and two vertically, in
any direction.  Can you find a path that touches
every letter of the alphabet exactly once, and in
alphabetical order, beginning at the A in the upper
left and ending at the Z in the lower right.
 
 
Subj:...Picture Palindromes (S696 in Palindromes)
        Page 46
Each of the pictures represents a palindromic phrase -
a phrase spelled the same forward and back.  The answer
to each picture can be written on the corresponding
dashes, one letter per space.  For example, the first
picture shows RACE CAR.  We'll leave the other nine
pictures for you to reflect on.

Subj:...Checker Out (S697)
        Page 64

Subj:...Crypto-Chess (S699)
        Page 65
Drawing from FotoSearch.com
On this chessboard, each letter stands for one chessman
and neither color has two identical men.  Try to deter-
mine which man each letter represents, and then play
out the game so that White mates Black in one move.

Subj:...Space Age Mythology (S700)
        Page 64
Drawing from ProProofs.com
Whether you're a stellar scholar or a rocker aficionado,
you know that space launches are more than flights of
fancy.  But many of the names for missions and space-
craft are derived from mythology.  Eight of them are
clued on this web page, once for the scholar and again
for the science buff.  Which are you?  And can you name
all eight?

 From Vol.6 No.8 Issue 34 in December 1982
Subj:...Whose Signs? (S687b)
        Page 60
Identifying a company by its logo is easy when it's 
a familiar object, like a bunny (Playboy) or a bell 
(Bell Telephone).  But some companies use abstract
sympols as trademarks, hoping that they'll convey
a feeling about the company or its products.

The successful ones - like the 15 on this page - 
will stick in your mind.  Or do they?  How 
many of these well-known logos can you identify?

.

 From Vol.13 No.5 Issue 99 in August 1989
Subj:...Card Sense (S684b)
          on Page 53
We've laid out the jacks, queens, kings, and aces
of all four suits of the deck in four-by-four
array shown so that each horizontal row and each
vertical column contains one card of every rank
and one card of every suit.  In addition, each
of the two main diagonals contains one card of
every rank (though not necessarily one of each
suit).  We've turned up three of the cards.  Can
you identify the position of the other thirteen
cards?

 From Vol.14 No.2 Issue 102 in March 1990
Subj:...Five Robots (S683b)
          on Page 53
Here are the five robots from the assembly line at
Rossum's Universal Robots, Ltd.  As you can see,
their heads and bodies are of four shapes (circle,
diamond, square, and triangle) and four patterns
(checks, dots, lines, and blank).

These robots' heads have been misassigned: Each
head should match its body shape, pattern, or
both, provided that the square head is not assigned
to the square body (it looks too blocky).

Can you reassign the heads correctly?

Subj:...Which Way (S689b)
        Page 24
Shemp the Temp had a feeling his new job at Widget
World was too good to be true - and he was right.
For his first day of training, Shemp's supervisor
padlocked him to a platform, with a gearwheel to
his right and a two-ton weight suspended above his
head.  His assignment: to give the wheel a one-
revolution turn, in either a clockwise or counter-
clockwise direction.  Based upon his decision, an
ominous-looking ax will swing in one of two direct-
ions - releasing the key to his freedom, or the
weight of Wigit World upon his shoulders.  Can you
solve Shemp's Damoclean dilemma and advise him
which way the gearwheel should turn?

        Page 63
