 Posted: Sat Aug 31, 2002 3:52 pm    Post subject: 4 Hmmm... maybe this: Perhaps HANDLE goes under MAN instead of WAGON. This would free up a word under MAN. I would guess that the word freed up is STRONG. Then we have: ARM: strong, wrestle, band MAN: power, police, handle (POWER or ENERGY): solar, source, station Of course, if this is right, we now have the problem of deciding which of POWER or ENERGY is correct, as well as what word goes with the level 2 words. If POWER is correct, though, a word would be in both levels 1 and 2, which from what I've seen is generally frowned on in VSP.
