Re(2): Ximenes 70th anniversary

I would also like to thank John for his fantastic work in creating the &slit Archive and for reminding us that it was 70 years since the first Ximenes puzzle.

Many years ago it was my aim to find out all I could about Ximenes. I wrote to his widow Mary Macnutt to get information and she was very helpful. I started collecting the prize-winning clues and it was thanks to John Tozer that the list was completed.
I notice that the winning clue for 70 years ago was "Once round the tiles for a drink "

I would certainly recommend his crosswords which are still as clever and witty today.
