# o A Contest for Leap Year ...

Jumping for Joy
by Stephen Sniderman

 

Jumping Jehoshaphat! Leapin' lizards! There's a whole lot of hurdling going on in this puzzle! Each two-word phrase below represents a word with a single letter out of place. Your job is to get that letter back where it belongs by vaulting it over two to eight letters to the right or to the left. In #1, for example, if you jump the E in MARE over two letters to the right (the R and the I), the result will be MAR RIED, which becomes MARRIED when the space is removed.

Once you figure out which letter leaps which way and how far, that letter is placed in the corresponding blank in the mystery sentence in the answer box below. For example, the E that got moved two letters to the right in #1 jumps over two blanks to the right in the mystery sentence and is placed in the blank marked #4. When spaced properly, the completed sentence will give you some advice on how to keep jumping for joy.

To enter the contest, send that sentence by email to Stephen Sniderman (click here or send to slsnider@cc.ysu.edu ). The first correct response and two others chosen at random from all correct entries received by midnight, May 31, 2000, will earn a prize from Kadon Enterprises, Inc.
