(By W. Bernard Butler)
The timid or aggressive frosh
should take warning from this story
of the campus cloack, lest a similar
calamity befall him in cranking hisi
Big Ben or in inducing his dollar
pocket variety to keep time.
Even the wise and dignified senior
has often wondered what super-
natural power sends the great hands
of the tower clock around its four
huge faces with such a wide diversion
of time for each. At aVy instant one
can observe at least four separate,
distinct, and different times of the
day, depending, upon the angle of ob-
servation or the individual face. Even
now there are times when the hands
indicate the hour of 11, but the bell
tolls eight o'clock. It appears that
the hands of the clock and the bell
clappers are propelled by the descent
of four 1800 pound weights that re-
quire the attention of two men once
a week. Occasionally these men have
added inspiration to wind the clock
as quickly as possible, for prolonging
the job of winding four 1800 weights
to the aggregate height of 40 feet is
no adventure to which even a giant
?would relish. Laboring under some
such incentive, two men, it is said,
made extreme haste to complete their
assigned work.
The Falling Apple.
But the mass of metal in the south-
west corner of the tower made too
rapid a response, and either snapped
its steel cable or bent the hook which
had suspended it in midair. Newton's
experience with the falling apple was
no more startling to him, than what
happened to the surprise *nd fear of
those near the clock tower, for when
1800 pounds of pig iron drop ten feet
or so, something is bound to happen.
A six or eight inch beam or a deal
of brickwork meant a little to the
plunging monster. We are told that
the dazed and shell-shocked immedi-
ate inmates of the engineering shops
building or offices rushed out without
discretion as to exits in mortal fear
that the activities of the Black Hand
had been successful in placing a sup-
ply of bombs in their beloved tower.
Incidentally four new steel cables
have been replaced their ancestors,
a new hook secures the fugitive
weight, and a campus bricklayer
found employment. I
Ye Moral.
Since the "explosion" the potential
energy of 1800 weights has been given
its due respect and reverence, lest

the clock, the tower, and its aides be
no more. Obviously the moral of our)
little tale is expressed in the title of
that recent song hit called: "Mind,
Little Frosh, How You Wind Your
Clock-It may Blow Up In Your
Pocket!"
READ THESE AND
STAY OUT OF JAIL
"Don't break the city ordinances
and expect to get away with it and
not pay the penalty," was the procla-
mation issued to the people of Ann
Arbor yesterday by Thomas O'Brien,
Chief of Police, in view of the large
number of recent violations of city
ordinances. Given below is his list
of "Don'ts" which apply to everyone.
"Don't play ball in the streets."
"Don't ride a bicycle on the side-
walk."
"Dont speed (fifteen miles per hour
is the limit within city)."
"Don't drive your car after dark
without proper light."
"Don't fail to park parallel to curb
on State and on Main streets."
"Don't fail to drive to right of inter-
sections when turning from one
street to another."
"Don't drive a car without an oper-
ator's license and don't allow anyone
to drive your car that has not an
operator's license."
"Don't forget that the driver of a
car to your right at the intersection
has the-right of way."
"Don't park within 25 feet of a fire
hydrant."
"Don't keep a dog around without
a state or city licensee. All bull dogs
must be muzzled the year around,
whether in leash or not."
'PLANS FOR CONGREGATIONAL
CHURCH NOW BEING PREPARED
Plans for a new Congregational
church at the corner of WilliHms and
State streets will soon be submitted
by Prof. L. H. Boynton of the archi-
tectural department, 'who has been
working on them during the summer
months.
Though little definite information
is given out by Prof. E. C. Goddard
chairman of the building committee,
he states that the seating capacity
of the new structure will be more
than 1500. The seating capacity of
the persent building is only 800.
