THEME:   none; 32 blocks
   
GOOD ONES:     
Bill toppers   STARS [I thought money, not plays and movies]   
   
BTW:   
Some, in Seville   UNOS [but not in Leeds]   
   
K thru 12   ELHI [only place I've seen this is in Xwords, and unless ed biz has adopted the term, which I doubt, K-12 is the real world term]   
   
"Ruth's ___ Steak House," where I ate once, for some reason has the apostrophe after Ruth leaving CHRIS Steak House as the per se name, which makes little sense to me --- as does its reputation for fine dining.   
   
   
RATING:   (one grin)
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun

Yes, ELHI is a word which we see in crosswords but never anywhere else. The Random House Dictionary defines "elhi" as "adj. elementary and high-school." The term dates from 1945. Two other words I have never seen outside of crosswords are ASEA and AROAR. And where, other than in crosswords, do you ever see a reference to only one "Alp"?

Both ASEA and AROAR I have come across in English poetry, and ASEA in novels.  ALP, however, I have seen only in dog food.  Okay, maybe that last sentence needs a little ALP.
