People Puzzle

Posted on

Here is a super year-end version of the PEOPLE Puzzle. The names of 40 people who were prominent in 1974 are hidden in the maze of letters. How many can you find by consulting the brief clues? The names read forward, backward, up, down or diagonally, are always in a straight line and never skip letters. We have started you off by circling DEAN, the answer to 1 in the diagram. The names may overlap and letters may be used more than once, but not all of the letters will be used. Super sleuths should be able to identify 30 or more names. Answers in the Jan. 13 issue.
