    That's scary. Stvwz, why aren't you working on TCWAF? We could use you over there.
    Thought that was all solved now.

    It says he also got the "Wolf Prize in Physics".

    Maybe his "Wolf' prize is the "Howl" reference?

    If Ginsburg is a homophone of Ginzburg, then maybe Joyce is a homophone of "Jouhaux"? Would it be pronounced like "Joyce"? There is Leon Jouhaux, 1951 Nobel Peace prize.

    (I tried to put a wikipedia link here, but I couldn't get it to work)

    There are 16 underlines on this page (unless I missed one). And there's always from 1 to 5 letters underlined. When I saw this I wondered (because I remember all too well doing it in Treasure's Trove) could these 1-to-5 letter counts be used as 1-to-5 coordinate pairs on a 5 X 5 polybius alphabet grid? One of the things that is underlined is "no q", which could mean there's "NO Q" in the grid.

    I know when I mentioned the polybius grid before on this forum, Domino said that he was hiking the Appalachian Trail when Treasure's Trove came out, and so he didn't work on it that much. But the 5 X 5 polybius grid is also used in the Playfair cipher and the Nihilist Russian cipher, and some others. And there's the paper slip at the end of the book that says "Play fair"...so I would think it's possible the Playfair would be used somewhere in this book, and when I saw the "NO Q" I wondered if this could be the place. If there's a Playfair in the book, the keyword could be "Cowboy" (COWBY).

    Oh! Well scratch that! That L at the end was tricky.

    Maybe you are on to something with underline lengths. Tab convention will use 1-6 to count for each string on a guitar for instance. I don't understand it perfectly but tablature varies depending on instrument and the physical diagram of the layout is needed to remove ambiguity. If we knew what instrument we could construct a tune. Probably nothing like that going on here. The music side of my brain can go back so sleep now.

    When you follow TABs for a guitar they are arranged by the notes (strings) on the guitar and the frets. The frets are differentiated from each other by numbers...ie first fret, second fret, etc...There are 6 strings on a regular guitar and four strings on a bass guitar. You would not ever have six in a row, as in the trickl. (Unless you are barring a chord, but then you would have additional notes.) And they don't always go in a row either. Sometimes you skip a string. Maybe someone out there who plays guitar would know more...FoxyKeys?

    I don't think TABs are used here. But that is a good idea. There are so many ways that you could hide messages within music.
