GETTING NERVOUS
BEFORE FINALS

When a TO's taken, Emily leads w/ $3,400 to Barrett's $2,800 & Joe's $1,800. And the DD behind the $800 Before Finals screen goes to Emily w/ $4K; her leading margin between her & Barrett's $800, while Joe has hit $2K. She wagers face value.

In the calendar year, it's the penultimate federal holiday.

A STUDENT OF HISTORY
"HY" FIVE

As A Student of History's wrapping up, Barrett un-buries a DD w/ $12,600, just $200 off Joe's leading score; Emily's a fairly close third w/ $8,400. Barrett goes for $4K & the lead back on the following:

Paul Ryan was greatly influenced by this female novelist who studied History in Russia.

"Who is Anne Rand?"...he should be smiling- $16,600's his new first-place total! After it was left alone for a while because its $1,200 clue was a TS, Emily goes right back to it for $1,600 at the right time for the last remaining DD in this rd. of competition; she sits at $9,200, Joe's at 12 G's & Barrett's all but in the semis w/ $18,200. For another thou:

"What is Montgomery?"...after talking it out a bit, she got it.

SOLE ATTEMPTED TS: $1,200 ("Hy")
