y Well, there' goes the sunlight for the
day. Mr, Greene has almost knocked
the Joy out of living, and if it wer not
lor this answer of W. M. Candy, the
pussle editor would Tt very sad. But
-Mr. Candy says: , .
"The solution f yoar skidoo prob-
; lent is: rind the least common mul
tiple of the numbers 2 to 22. inclusive,
and add 1; this gives '222.722.SU pen
. Now WU1 Mn Greene be good? '
, Closing the Oevtee. , .
Her Is a rather Important announce
ment: The skidoo problem has brought
in from 76 to 12 letters a day sine It
as started; this makes It the most
popular contest of the sort that was
ver begun in a Portland -paper; but a
limit has got to be put to the time for
receiving answers. The time Is: '
'. Sunday. December .
'; :.' ' This means that replies received after
? that date will not be counted. As sooa
v as possible after Decern ber very
1 probably on Sunday, December II, the
- names of the winners will be announced.
. The temptation waa great to close the
: contest en December 1. and announce
the names of the winners on December
; 21, but the number 22 has cropped up
z ma often ia tbe skidoo column that tha
" UU was advanced a week. Don't for
( get that the- prise is for to best soU-
Won. Get tn your answers before De
cember t. Here are some callings from
today's msll-v . , . ... - -
' What frank Xestef Thinks,
The deluded people who send in 121
for an answer are incorrect; 62 -will
not divide by 6 so ss to leave 1 over. I
do not think that this Is a mathematical
problem. The1 correct anawer la skidoo

Journal Skidoo- elub-p-th only rules of
Initiation consist of sending in aa an
swsr to the pussle hsvs an idea that
23, so universally acquainted with the
term. Is the correct answer. Possibly
even probably It ts; nothing Is Impos
sible or Improbable with the akldoos.
Here are the names of those who think
there wer 22 pennies in the boxes:
