Here is a different kind of crossword puzzle. Called the "R-E Puzzler," it has only Across words and clues - no Downs. Its sort of a crossword puzzle with training wheels, or a crossword puzzle for the vertical word challenged. Actually, not having cross-linking Down words can make solving it a bit more difficult since only the one or two provided letters are available to assist in figuring out the correct word. Other variations of this sort of word grid has the provided letters spell out a word or phrase, but this one doesn't. Every word is related to electronics or electrical principles. Bon chance.

If you like this R-E Puzzler, there are other in the Jan '67, Mar '67, Apr '67, Aug '67, and Oct '67 issues.
