In anticipation of the fact that this is PEOPLE'S 10th year-end issue, this year's double puzzle features names of those who have made our Intriguing 25 list in previous years. The names of 50 of them are hidden in this block of letters; they read forward, backward, up, down or diagonally, either way. They are always in a straight line and never skip letters. As a head start, the response to the first clue is Muhammad ALI Dedicated people-watchers should be able to pick out at least 35 names; 40 or better qualifies as expert. Answers will appear in the Jan. 9 issue.
