33 NOVEMBER 2010 CORRESPONDENCE Simon Bender (Chatswood 2067) wrote: "A long-time reader of your pages, I have yet to have been prodded into action, until now". He then responded, correctly, to the postal address cryptogram and provided another, attributed to Clive of India, who is credited with securing India for the Crown, in a series of battles. Lord Clive is said (but with no clear evidence) to have announced his capture of Sind in a single word communication: "Peccavi". Some clever readers will know why, but there is no prize. Anthony Hill firstname.lastname@example.org found the postal cryptogram a cinch, then posed three classic puzzle stories. We tried them out on a range of people, but they were well known to all of them, and we deemed them not a challenge to sagacious CH readers, but thanks Anthony. How about a few clinical hints? Denis Feely (Mt Martha 3934) sent in a most interesting OPG showing an air rifle slug in what could have been bone, but was actually the cheek, and it had been there a long time. But we have had several similar OPGs over the years, and they no longer challenge our expert CH readers. TEASER The August TEASER was provided by James Auld (Inverell 2360), and proved to be very popular. Your Scholiast was ambivalent about using it because a similar mystery object appeared on ABC TV Program, The Collectors.* It is a wooden amalgam dispenser, and was recognized by a football team of responders. They were, in order of receipt: Geoff Rider (Sydney 2000), Jeremy Rourke (Port Macquarie 2444), Bob Lowry (Parkwood 4214), Les Aisen (Elsternwick 3185), Peter Smyth (Seaforth 2092), Paul Keightley (Mooloolaba 4557), Joseph Chan (Thomastown 3074), Iris Messmer (6324), Iain Edwards (Woollahra 2025), Peter Furey (Bondi Junction 2022), Neil Lanceley (Northeast Arnhem Land), Len Boulton (Stafford 4053) and Jeff Brigden (Port Pirie 5540). All the above names were written on slips of paper, with three extra for Paul Keightley's clinical hints (thank you), and drawn from your Inditer's mortarboard by his life partner, who, with no sexist intent, selected Iris Messmer. Iris wins the coveted, inscribed, pewter ADA paperweight. Recent, or even middle-aged readers may be unfamiliar with how things were August 2010 TEASER clinical hints *Your Columnist is happy to explain (to anyone foolish enough to ask) how the program is made, because he appeared on it for a few minutes on October 8, 2010 describing Rolls- Royce car mascots. answers
