    The theme in section C was: "Direct-mates in 4 or more moves in which
    a white piece vacates square X to allow another white piece to occupy that same
    square X at least 2 moves later (i.e. White must wait at least one move after
    the vacation of square X before he occupies it by another piece). Pawn(s) may
    be used as the thematic piece(s)"
