Contest 162: Geo Limerick
I speak English, French and Bislama,
Produce coconuts, yams and banana.
In World War II, I was terrific
Inspiring "Tales of the South Pacific"
But caused the Japanese lots of trauma.
Name the country.

Results from No. 160: GEO SCRAMBLE
In Contest 160, we asked you to name a town downstream from Slavuta, Ukraine, whose name would be worth 46 points on a Scrabble board. One problem: We didn't factor in that rivers run south to north in those parts. A few ETTites were confused, but most still came up with Zaluzhzha, south of Slavuta. Congratulations to A.Dollmeyer of Washington, who receives a Travel Section mousepad.
