Clue of the week:
Salvation Army soldiers want the heart of Michael Palin (5)
(This is originally from Private Eye, by Cyclops)

Also I need some confirmation on these:-

13a. Food is better but no starter provided (4)

I have E_T_, which I assume is EATS
from: is better = beats less the starting letter B, eats being another word for food

24d. Time to get even with society? (5)

I have T_E_S.
I am thinking it is TEENS, which is derived from t = time, een = poetic for even, s = society

EATS & TEENS look good to me for exactly the reasons that you gave.

Thanks for the reassurance Jim
Its so easy to assume that if the logic fits it must be right, but I've been wrong so many times in the past.
