The crossword:

The alphametic:

The alphametic solution:

Given the OOE and EOE columns, we can deduce that O=0 and E=1.

From the first alphametic we can deduce:

1+S=L
S+D=11
1+R=S

From the second alphametic we can deduce:

A+B>10
R+1=S

We also know that R≠0, S≠0, and L≠0 because of the ban on leading zeros.

If we allow different letters to correspond to the same number, there are multiple solutions. I thus assume that each letter is supposed to stand for a unique number.

Trying possibilities for S yields contradictions for all except one case:

S=1, contradiction (no way to satisfy S+D column)
