(clue 5), so they have the two 7:50 slots. The man whose slots
ale consecutive (clue 4), then, can't be Claude, so he's Fritz,
and therefore Fritz's first slot is al 7:40. Claude and Diane must
have the two 7:30 slots (clue 6), and by elimination tlle other
7:20 slot is Belle's. Belle is made up at 7:20 and wigged at 7:50
(clue 3), so Hillary's 7:20 slot must be for a wig, and Fritz's
7:50 slot must be for his makeup; at 7:40, then, Hillary gets
made up and Fritz gets his wig. The man who gets made up
before he gets wigged (clue 3) must be Claude, so Claude is
made up at 7:J0 and wigged ar 8:00: by elimination. Diane is
wigged at 7:J0 and made up ar 8:00. In summary:

Mercedes and Toby photographed Robinet River and Hedge-

Goblin Grove and Vista Vale in some order (clues 2 and 3).
Dixie didn't face in fte opposite direction from Mercedes (clue
5) or Julius (or she'd have photographed Robinet River---=clue
zl-which she didn't--clues 2 and 3), so Dixie faced in the
opposite direction from Toby, and lherefore Julius and Mer-
cides also faced in opposite directions. Dixie, then, didnt
photograph Vista Vale {since she and Toby faced in opposile
direclions----clue 2), so she photographed Goblin Grove, and
Julius phoographed Msra Vale. Mercedes photographed Robinet
River (clqe 4), so by elimination Toby phorographed Hedgerow
Hill. Toby didn't face north (clue J), so he faced east (clue 2),
and Dixie, who faced in the olposite direction, faced w€st.
Mercedes faced south (clue 3 ), and by elimination Julius faced

There were eight stices eaten in all (introduction), and every-
one had at least one slice (clue l).Therearefivewayslodivide
eight slices among four people so that each gels at least one:

3-3-l-l and 2-2-2-2 are impossible (clue 4). [f rhe slices were
divided, 3-2-2-l, then Magnolia would have had three slices
and Rogers would have had one (clue 3), and clue 4 would be
impossible. So the.slices can only have been divided 4-2-1-1.
Magnolia had four slices and Rogers had two (clue 3). ten had
two slices and is Rogers, and Piney had one slice lclue 4).
Magnolia isn't Sloane (Sloane is male----clue 5), io she's
Quilter, and by elimination Sloane is the other person besides
Piney who had one slice. Since Sloane is malei(clue 5), he must
be Ozzie, and by elimination Piney is Nell. Nell Piney is the
only one who could have ordered wine (clue 5). kn Rogers

Magnolia Quilter ordered milk. In summary:
