 Crosswords, A Century of fun.


Crosswords have been a familiar feature of newspapers for as long as anybody can remember.  So it comes as a shock to learn that in the puzzle's infancy, newspapers were less than kind about there worth. In fact, according to a new book to mark the crossword's centenary, the poser was for slowing down the American workforce. Author Alan Conner explained: "It was it was something the working classes did and it made the establishment wary" The Times made it sound like an addiction and described it as a menace. " But it noticed that other papers were doing quite well from the crossword and added it's own.   It was Liverpudlian Arthur Wynne, wording on the puzzle page of the New York World, who printed the first crossword on December 21, 1913. "When he realised it was popular, he wanted to patent it" Said Alan. "He didn't have the cash so he went to his bosses, but they said it was just a fad. "It took a while for it to be noticed in the U.K. -- the first crossword in a British publication wasn't until 1922 in Pearson's magazine. The puzzle has plenty of famous fans. "Frank Sinatra sent fan mail to the editor of the editor of the New York Times crossword, boasting about his solving time," revealed Alan. And it has been said the Queen starts each day with a crossword over breakfast. Neither of them, as far as we know has actually set a crossword -- but Homer Simpson has. In an episode of the Simpson's, Homer sets the New York Times crossword, containing the hidden message 'Dumb dad sorry for bet' as a way of an apology to daughter Lisa. "The puzzle seen in the episode was actually printed in the New York Times earlier that day" Alan explained. The crossword hasn't always been connected to such light heartedness, though. As well as playing it's part in code breaking during the second World War, the crossword was also  suspected of being a tool for treason.  In August, 1942, M15 was suspicious when the word "Diepe" appeared in the Telegraph crossword and two days later there was a raid on the Channel port. And over a series of months in 1944, the Telegraph puzzle contained the code names associated to the D-Day operation, such as Omaha, Juno and Overlord. "It wouldn't have helped Hitler -- I think it was more of a coincidence" Added Alan. As for the title of Alan's book, Two Girls One On Each Knee (7), that's the celebrated two-millionth clue by the world's most prolific crossword setter, Roger Squires. The answer Patella.
