My fellow puzzlers:

Yesssssss!!!! This one worked! I don't know why it wasn't selectable
from the graphics palette, but using the tab procedure finally resulted
in the gray bar appearing with handles - and from there the handy Delete
key did its job.

Thank you all for the suggestions, and thank you Dorothy in particular!
