INSTRUCTIONS,
Guess the words defined at the
left and write them in over
their numbered dashes. Then,
transfer each letter to the cor-
responding numbered square
in the grid above. The letters
printed in the upper-right-hand
corners of the. squares indi-
cate from what clue-word a
particular square's letter
comes from. The grid, when
filled in, should read as a
quotation from a published
work. The darkened squares
are the spaces between words.
Some words may carry over
to the next line. Meanwhile,
the first letter of each guessed
word at the left, reading down,
forms an acrostic, giving the
author's name anI the title of
the work from which the quote
is extracted. As words and
phrases begin to form in the
grid, you can work back and
forth from clues to grid until
the puzzle is complete.
Answer to last week's puzzle
In Homer, of course, noth-
ing happens without the god
concerned manifesting him-
self. But . . . these divine in-
terventions. . . always come
at the critical moment when
human powers suddenly con-
verge, as if charged by elec-
tric contact, on some insight,
some resolution, some deed.
-Walter F. Otto
The Homeric Gods

EELING THE first rays of
summer sun last spring, my
thoughts turned once again
to baseball. Finally, I could
ra that glove, hustle outside, and
get off a few cautious throws to test out
the old arm. Meanwhile, the Detroit
Tigers, the team Michiganians have
embraced so faithfully for so long, were
winding up the exhibition season in
Florida, awash in the optimism of a
new season. All winter, we'd heard
stories that this would be the year the
youthful Tigers would blossom into a
major contender.
Now, thousands of flyballs later, the
dust is finally settling on most major
league playing fields. The post-season
play-offs loom ahead, and, per usual,
the Tigers aren't among the select four-
team group gunning for the world
championship of baseball.
As they were a year ago, the Bengals
are nestled snugly in the middle of the
American League East Division stan-
dings, hovering slightly over a break-
even win-loss mark for the season. For
the few remaining Tiger veterans, the
lack of post-season stimulation will be
familiar. Not since 1972 have the
Detroiters topped their rugged division,
while their last World Series appearan-
ce came in that wondrous 1968 season,
when they won it all. Before that, you
have to go back to 1945 and the heyday
of Hank Greenberg to find the Tigers
lording over the major leagues.
And 'yet we still support the Tigers in
droves, a devotion whose' origins
remain mysterious to me. Despite all
my efforts to the contrary over the last
five years, they're still my team, the
only one I root for deep down, where it.
counts. I say I don't care when they
finish fourth or fifth, the chance for first
long gone. But I make a lousy liar. The
future is the greatest comfort to the
baseball fan. I tell myself, "Another '68
must be lurking around the corner,
right?"
Kind of doubt it. The Tigers did well
this year to end up as they did in 1978,
when they finished fifth place-with an
86-76 record, 13 and a half games out of
first. The economics of modern
baseball insured that general manager
Jim Campbell's team was behind the

eight ball before the season even got
underway. Last season's most suc-
cessful Tiger hurler, Jim Slaton, boar-
ded the free agent train for Milwaukee,
where he's seen continued success.
Seems the financial pastures were con-
siderably greener there-thousands of
dollars greener.
The most productive man at the plate
in 1978; Rusty Staub, hit big only in the
restaurant business at the beginning of
the season. When Campbell and the
reticent slugger finally came to terms,
the stroke that knocked in 121 runs the
year before just wasn't there. Exit
Rusty, stage Montreal. Then, Project
Mark Fidrych fell through will a dull
thud. After a year of painstakingly
bringing the Bird along, visions of that
'76 Rookie-of-the-Year dancing in their
heads, members of the Tiger brass
quickly found themselves back at
sauare one: the Bird proved little more
dependable than Michigan weather.
Finally, the American League East
was, and continues to be, the most
rugged division in baseball, with six of
its seven teams playing at least .500
ball.
It had to be frustrating for Jim Cam-
pbell to watch the demise of the Yankee
dynasty, only to have plucky Earl
Weaver's Orioles rise right out of sight.
It's rough having a good team, only to
be crushed by three or four even more
talented teams. But that's been the
Tigers' fate for three years, and
probably the next few as well.
It's doubtful that the Tigers could
scale the dizzying heights they did in '68
with their present pitching staff. That
year, you'll remember, with every
come-from-behind victory, with every
notch they gained in the standings, the
Tigers seemed to bring Detroit out of its
misery. Mayo Smith's veteran squad
was like a tonic for a city crippled by
the previous summer's race riots. The
city went bonkers over a free-spirited
hurler named Denny McLain, who bet-
ween putting his foot in his mouth for
the local press and playing the organ
professionally won 31 games.
And then, in a finish Frank Merriwell
couldn't have written any better, the

Tigers took the World Series to the
seventh game, and defeated the St.
Louis Cardinals and their stellar moun-
dman Bob Gibson. ,
Well, both McLain and a sturdy
fellow named Mickey Lolich are long
gone; instead, we have a pitching staff
whose combined ERA was at one point
the second worst in the majors.
UT BEFORE you bury the
Tigers' chances for the next
decade, consider how far
Campbell has brought his
c u since 1975, when it was the incon-
testably worst-in baseball. After Billy
Martin managed to squeeze a divisional
title out of the aging Tiger squad in
1972, the Detroiters' fortunes plum-
meted, culminating in the debacle of
'75, when they lost 19 straight games.
With the American League record of 20
within their grasp, they up and beat the
California Angels on the road. It was
