I'm having a problem convincing myself that my last few solutions are correct.
18a - I am assuming that 'Good looker takes room at salon' (6,7) is Beauty Parlour - since I have the A and the L of the second word. Therefore -
14d - The only word I can get for 'Fur trade's ousted crook'(9) now that it gives a U for ?R?U????? would be Trousseau. But it seems tenuous.
This gives the S for 22a 'Something is tapering to a point'(4) as Gist (starting from last letter of first word and I know the G is right).
Does this make 24a 'Loose rocks almost put on television (5) and now with ?C?A? (with the A coming from Trousseau) as Scrag.
It completes the crossword - but I don't feel confident it is right. Any comments, corrections of helpers please. Sorry for the long post.
