Bertrand Russell's famous recipe for longevity:
--OO-E -OU- -A-E--- -I-E--
As you see - only the vowels are left.
Hopefully, it's enough to restore the original quotation.
From a strictly grammatical viewpoint and "recognizing that the period is important" (Henderson v. State of Mississippi, Supreme Court of Mississippi, February 8, 1984)*, the last blank position should be designated for the period.
So the solution is:
GROOVE FOUR HATEFUL WIVES .
(Russell's famous recipe in a secret letter to Ludwig Wittgenstein of July 1, 1939: private archive, signature LRW 7-39)**
