"It May Be a Mere Intellectual Puzzle to You..." [SUSS]
Article III of the Constitution of the Baker Street Irregulars states that eligible members must pass "an examination of the Sacred Writings."
After Christopher Morley convened the first meeting of the BSI in January of 1934, his brother Frank V. Morley (under the pseudonym 'Mycroft Holmes') published a crossword puzzle to serve as an entrance exam. The original crossword appeared in the The Saturday Review of Literature on May 3, 1934.
Now, courtesy of Bob Crispen, you can test your knowledge on the original crossword puzzle on the Web.
