Lest We Forget

On-Air Challenge: Every word is a compound word, or a familiar two-word phrase or name, with the consecutive letters L — E — S — T. Specifically, the first word ends in L-E and second part starts with S-T. For example, “activity in a seminary.” The answer would be “BibLE STudy.”

Last Week’s Challenge: Name a breed of dog that starts and ends with the same letter of the alphabet. Drop that letter at both ends, and if you have the right dog, the remaining letters phonetically will name some animals. What’s the dog and what are the animals?

Answer: “Daschund” and “Oxen”

Winner: Jody Ingersoll, Sorrento, Fla. and David Ingersoll, Cleveland, Ohio

Next Week’s Challenge from David Ellis Dickerson of New York City: Take the name of an aquatic animal, in two words, six letters in the first word and four letters in the second. Remove the first letter of each word, the remaining eight letters in order, will spell a word that might describe an animal that is not aquatic.
