"Overlap" Puzzle. Cut this diagram or a copy of it directly through the center up and down. Not take the "right" side and lay it over the left side, so that any one of the spaces 12 to 22 is parallel to any one of the spaces 1 to 11. The first part of the puzzle is to get the proper space of the right on the proper space of the left, so that you can, reading the letters across, find the name of a state, one of the U. S. You don't need all the letters on the two parallels, but the letters making the state must come in succession. Next find separately three towns in this state, by the same, method. Now, laying left over right, find another state. Next, find separately three towns in this state. When cut apart, lay right over left, so that 21 is parallel to 4. Push it along, till the edge rests at O. You can now read Goroy, Goroyz, Goroyze. This is no word, but shows the proper way to proceed to get words.
The Solution to this puzzle is in white text between to (*); cut and paste it into a different document and change the font color to print the answer to the "Overlap" Puzzle. * Right over left, 18 over 3, Georgia; 20 over 5, Atlanta; 13 over 9, Dalton, northern part of the state; 19 over 6, Jesup, eastern part of the state. Left over right, 4 over 19, Maine; 11 over 16, Bagor; 6 over 14, Dexter, central part of the state; 1 over 17, Houlton, eastern part of the state. *
