Takes a break (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

rests

'takes a break' is the definition.
(resting is a kind of taking a break)

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for rests that I've seen before include "Pauses; relaxes" , "holidays" , "Takes a break" , "Musical pauses" , "Relaxes, sleeps" .)

I've seen this clue in the Penny Press, The Star Tribune, the Newsday, the King Feature Syndicate, The Wall Street Journal and The Mirror.
