IS MME TO LIE

Turning Time Piece Ahead
Brings Confusion to
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
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.
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.
