There's no hiding the truth about how well I did - or didn't do - on this "R-E Puzzler" from the October 1967 issue of Radio-Electronics magazine, because contrary to the publisher's promise, a solution was never published in a later issue (I looked for it in the six subsequent issues and could not find it). Therefore, the R-E Puzzler Solution posted at the bottom of this page shows the answers I was able to figure out which, embarrassingly, results in a score of only 17/25 = 68%. I'm pretty confident of being able to get all of them if I spent more time, but that's it for about 30 minutes worth of cogitating. If you know more of the words, please send me an e-mail and I'll add them to the solution. Thanks. 

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

A cruciverbalist is a person who is skilled at creating or solving crossword puzzles. The term is a combination of "cruci-" from "crucifix," meaning cross, and "verbalist" from "verbal," indicating a person who deals with words. cruciverbalists are often responsible for designing crossword puzzles, and they possess a deep knowledge of wordplay, vocabulary, and the techniques used in constructing and solving crosswords. They aim to make puzzles that are both challenging and enjoyable for crossword enthusiasts.
