James I. Rambo


Editor's Note: Palindromist James Rambo, known by the pseudonym of 'Tut' in the National Puzzlers' League, died on July 27, 1980. Word Ways readers will remember him best for his transposition poems based on well-known phrases such as 'Fools rush in where angels fear to treat' and 'Discretion is the better part of valor'. The stories below, three of which first appeared in The Enigma (July 1972, April 1974, February 1975), show that he was interested in other forms of word-play as well.
