Crossword work out

Raymond Hamel's Wednesday puzzle gave me a lot of false starts. It took me much longer than usual to get through it, but it was quite satisfying. In fact, I didn't think there was a clue because I was so engrossed in the small details of the puzzle.

The main clues:
Cereal box figure with a hat - capncrunch
Group forcing men into military service - pressgang
Emergency military operation - airlift
Enhancing undergarment - pushupbra
Orange snack item - cheesecurl

But there were a lot of clues I didn't know. I'm surprised I can immodestly admit I got all of them.

Next-to-last Italian queen - Elena
House feature - gable
Word on a biblical wall - mene
Igor Moiseyev - Russian choreographer
Assistance - succor
Don Shula - Longtime Dolphins coach
Trash bins - ashcans
Essay has an alternate definition of attempt, or endeavor

Interesting clues:
Product of dehydration - seasalt
Body of art - torso
Shooter - bbgun
Dairy case item - oleo
Where to put old newspapers, maybe - cage

A relatively closer look:
Gable - A triangular, usually ornamental architectural section, as one above an arched door or window.

Cleo the goldfish was featured in Disney's Pinnochio.

Ulysses was banned in America as it was classified as obscene until 1933.

Hells Canyon is in Lewiston, Idaho, crafted by Snake River.

Press gang - The organisation at the ports charged with obtaining seamen was known as the Impress Service. The Impress service was limited to seizing men who were seamen, a word given a broad interpretation. The age limits were set at 18 to 55 years of age, frequently these limits were ignored.They often dupe and kidnap people into the Navy.
