WATCH IT-TIME FLIES:
Loss of Courthouse Clock
Irks Ann Arbor Shoppers
By' DON KOTITE
An Ann Arbor shopper, eager to
catch a bus home, looked up at
the County Courthouse clock for
the right time-but alas, there
was no clock.
Such action has been typical of
hundreds of local clock watchers
ever since the huge timepiece was
torn down in the fall of '48, Coun-
ty Clerk Luella M. Smith has no-
* * *
"EVEN NOW the clock's ab-
sence is sorely felt. People who
never realized until recently that
it was removed keep plying us
with when's, why's and how's,"
Relics from the historical
1870's, the clock and its wooden
tower were built a year after
the courthouse's cornerstone
was laid in 1877.
And from that memorable oc-
casion on, the 5-ft.-in-diameter
timepiece provoked nothing but
ivy-clad tradition-and trouble, a
check of courthouse records indi-
FIRE AND WINDSTORMS re-
sulted in frequent clockface
breakages. And as a consequence
of the tower's rotting wooden
frame, no fire or storm policy was
ever allowed, the files show.
Every month (like clock-
work), timing mechanisms be-
gan to run afoul of the ortho-
dox and had to be adjusted.
In addition a caretaker strug-
gled to wind "It"-as "It" was
affectionately called-once a
week, finding manipulation of
of the outmoded weights and
cables system no easy task.
A long rope, used to ring a
monstrous bell also housed in the
tower, came down to the court-
house lobby. Whenever the
hawser was yanked the clock
would go awry, Miss Smith dis-
covered several years back.
* * *
OFFICIAL condemnation came
in 1933, five years after iron
crossbars were inserted to pro-
long the clock's life as long as
And at a cost of $5,828,
wreckers snuffed out that spark
of life a little more than a
year ago, leaving the complex
clockworks lying undisturbed
just under the roof.
Who's sorry now? "Well, the
pigeons," Miss Smith ventured.
As if bluebooks weren't enough,
a "wide sampling" of the literary
college's senior class will have
another question thrown at them
by the officers of their class.
Via some 150 questionnaires'
distributed to various campus
housing units these officers will'
attempt to find out wheth-
er their constituents would sup-
port a Senior Cruise, were such
a trip scheduled.
* * *
THOUGH NO contracts have
been signed, class President Wally
Teninga said a rough itinerary
has been blocked out.
The trip will start with a bus
ride June 12, from Ann Arbor to
Detroit. In the motor city the
cruisers will board the ship,
which Teninga described as
A leisurely trip to Mackinac
Island and back will then start,
finishing up. in Detroit June 16.
From there busses will return the
seniors to Ann Arbor.
AT MACKINAC, Teninga added
parenthetically, the cruise mem-
bers will have some five hours to
tour points of interest on the
Bernie Aidinoff chimed in at
this point to make a few points
on the more practical details
of the trip.
Aidinoff, with Helen Girdler, is
co-chairman of the class' Special
Events Committee which handled
the arrangements for the plan-
ning of the trip.
The excursion's cost, Aidinoff
declared, will be $40, more or less.
"We're working on a plan now
for installment buying," Aidinoff
went on. "If this pans out it will
be possible to pay for this last
mad fling-" there was a twinkle
in his eyes here "-in four sec-
