A PUZZLE WITH PAWNS.





(Chessboard Problems)
Place two pawns in the middle of the chessboard, one at Q 4 and the
other at K 5. Now, place the remaining fourteen pawns (sixteen in all)
so that no three shall be in a straight line in any possible direction.
Note that I purposely do not say queens, because by the words "any
possible direction" I go beyond attacks on diagonals. The pawns must be
regarded as mere points in space--at the centres of the squares. See
dotted lines in the case of No. 300, "The Eight Queens."
