article description
I have been sitting in on an honor's class about Lewis Carroll being taught this spring semester at my old college haunt Butler University in Indianapolis. Among the many new puzzles and games being introduced in the class I offer the following based on the ten different letters in "Alice in Wonderland". These ten are ALICE and DROWN, perhaps referring the the 2nd Wonderland chapter "A Pool of Tears" where Alice thought she might drown in her own tears.
