IS MME TO LIE Strikes Five Bells Twice Within Short Space of Only Two Hours. COMPLIES WITH ORDER' Turning Time Piece Ahead Brings Confusion to Drowsy Students. The clock In the tower of the Uni versity hall, on the rampuH of the State University, has not been the best clock in the world Many times. i>er haps, too many times, it has refused to Mop peace with the sun, and as many times It has declined to wait for the sun. It has called classes ahead of time and has dismissed them after time. On other occasions it has ruina all hours of the day at one time. Hut always it has done these things of its own accord. Last night, however, it was encour aged in Its misconduct. In fact, it was made to lie. Twice during the early morning dkl It announce the hour of five; once at 3 o'clock, and again at & o'clock. Only a few students were aroused by the premature announce ment of 5 o'clock, but those who were, were cencerned to the extent of at tempting to discover its reason. The results of their endeavor was the learning of this fact. Kessler Responsible. The hour at which the clocks of the country were to be set ahead, was 2 o'clock this morning. At that time Richard Kessler, chief engineer at the university, climbed to the clock in the tower. As soon as the second hour of the morning had rung nut, he turned the clock ahead until the hands pointed out three. As the big brass hand swung down and up to the top of the black face, the bell announced to the world the third hour. All this ap peded so quickly that the five strokes of the hell came in regular succes sion, It will probably be the last of October before the university clock is made t q lie again.
