PUZZLE WORDS FOR PATIENT WORKERS. i ! &quot;STAR'S&quot; SPECIAL &quot;HOME-MADE&quot; SERIES. i NUMBER XII. To-day's puzzle was submitted by Mr. E. H. R. Green, 29, Liverpool Street, Epsom. The number of puzzles sent in every day by &quot; home-made &quot; puzzle-makers shows that the' latest phase of the cross-word pastime is widely popular. But there is still rather too much readiness to start work with an indifferent design, and it is time that puzzle-makers recognised that it is not sufficient to have a design merely symmetrical; it should also admit of a complete linking up, instead of blocking one part of the puzzle from the rest, and thus requiring, occasionally, as many as eight or nine starts to be made in the course of the solution. Definitions is another department of cross-word puzzle making that deserves more atten-1 tion. The chief difficulty appears to be with two and three letter words, which often have definitions giv...
