1************************ ****collective term for the followers of
certain religous movements such as Amish and Mennonites that sought to
live a "rude", i.e. simple, life

2************************ ****a fossil mollusc of the order Hippuritoida
(or Rudistes)

3************************ ****noncomformists

4************************ ****one who mocks

5************************ ****spreaders or spacers used in canvas-covered
airplane construction

6************************ ****cherries of a golden color

7************************ ****an early 19th century Northumbrian circle
of Romantic thinkers who most notably vilified formal education,
particularly grammar schools, espousing rather the ideal of the innately
good child in the vein of Rousseau and Wm. Blake, among others. The
Rudists took great inspiration from Wordsworth’s poem, “The Tables
Turned”, published in his influential 1798 Lyrical Ballads in which he
writes, “let nature be your teacher”. Among their number were
average-adjuster and poet Edward Irving Todd (1790?-1861), notorious for
his 1825 poem "Lady Grammar, Damn Her!", George Thomas Rudd (1795-1847),
clergyman and founder of the Royal Entomological Society, and Durham
wool merchant Paul Hood (1786-1846). Not to be confused with the
Roodists, 18th century Calvinist ministers who favored a simple crucifix
over the complete abstention from church adornment practiced by their peers

8************************ ****X-rated media broadcast over the airwaves,
as in radio or television

9************************ ****foot fetishists, in their literature

10************************ ****one involved in a struggle or competition

11************************ ****measles

12************************ ****the stress bars that brace the frame
(plate) of a piano

13************************ ****people who shun or avoid sunlight; Heliophobes

14************************ ****[Chiefly Scot.] lambs born prematurely
