(AWNS SAWN SNAW SWAN WANS), SHAY (ASHY HAYS), (ANISIC CASINI), TOQUET,
ABLUTED, ESTRUMS (MUSTERS), LIATRIS+, (ADVERSE EVADERS), (PANTILE),

ERRATUM: In last week's news, the 2 plays of FANCIERS attributed
to Jake were wrong - it was Richard who played the high-scoring
triple-triple of 194 points and the same word in another game.

Here are some anagramming puzzles:

 There is an acceptable seven when you rearrange  TOTALED.
 There is an acceptable seven  when you rearrange RAJAH + ED.
 There is an acceptable seven  when you rearrange TIN + CHAI.
 There is an acceptable seven  when you rearrange SOUR + GAS.
 There is an acceptable seven  when you rearrange LEFT + ROD.
 There are 2 acceptable sevens when you rearrange RATS + AIS.

 For all of the above, CSW2015 is the same as OWL16.

 In each of the following, CSW2015 has one more anagram than with OWL16.

 There is an acceptable seven when you rearrange RICHEST.
 MASONIC has 3 anagrams.
