WE'VE WENT AND DONE IT!
After about 10 years of living fairly close to Winston-
Salem —five years in Greensboro and over five years here—
we've at last thrown discretion to the winds and the advice
of friends into the discard and journeyed to Winston-Salem
to be present at the Easter Sunrise service about which
we'd heard so much and done so little.
Personally, we'd say that the program is no doubt very
impressive, but somehow or other with the temperature
down to 27 degrees and a cold north wind whipping about
us the while we waited for the sun to rise and the service
to begin, a good warm bed was
about the most impressive thing
we could think of. Another rea
son which may possibly have kept
us from enjoying the service to
the utmost was our anger at of
ficials of the Robert E. Lee hotel
for not keeping their clocks right.
We were seated in the hotel
lobby awaiting the passing of
time that went by on dragging
feet, when we noticed three clocks
over on the wall, all keeping dif
ferent time, and all different
from our own time. Figuring that
we'd better set our watch with
Winston-Salem time so as not to
be late for the sunrise service, we

? added up the three times cm the
" three clocks, divided by three and
fc set our watch accordingly. Of
> course this was sort of hard to do
" on account of the clocks in ques
-1 tion having only one hand.
About five minutes after we'd
1 made this change, we happened to
t glance back at the clocks and be
r dogged if they weren't telling an
s altogether different time! More
- than that, one of them was gain
t lng and another was losing. Fun
t niest thing we ever saw. And the
i one that was losing instead of the

s running too slow, it was actually

where It stopped m moment (no
doubt to rest), then moved on up
to 9. Pausing there a moment,
it started backing up.
It was terrible, our fingers were
growing numb with changing and
rechanging the time on our wrist
watch. And you must remember
that all three of the clocks were
acting like this, except they nev
er got together except once, and
this must have been an accident
for they had moved only about
two figures when one must have
realized what was going on, and
and stopped dead still!
Is it any wonder we became
disgusted and got all out of sorts?
Those clocks, plus that chill north
wind, Just about spoiled the en
tire thing for us. We got so
peeved we went over to the clerk
and told him his clocks must be
out odT fix, and then he told us
they weren't clocks, but things to
tell what floor the elevators were
on. Must have been kidding us,
because what reason has an ele
vator to know what floor it's on?
Who ever heard of an elevator
giving a rip about a matter like
that? And besides, with the ele
vator way up. say, on floor eight,
how In the dickens was it to see
that thing down in the lobby?
We still feel the clerk was trying
to act smart and kid us because
we were from the country.
Anyway, those clocks resulted in
us getting out to the cemetery
about two hours too early. To add
insult to injury, as we were

crawling along through traffic,
we came up on a band that was
playing and a policeman made us
turn off our car lights. It's not
, that we minded turning off our
; car lights but it was sort of em

t automobile ahead because we

should pay the check, so first

of coffee and doughnut we had
In mind when we went in.
Once the service started, the
bands began to play. Away off in
the distance one unit would play
a little bit and then the one near
us would answer. However, let It
be said that the bands evidently
didnt know but one piece, else
they played something else while
we Weren't looking.
When we got out to the grave- j
yard we had hoped to see the en
tire band—said to be three hun
dred and some pieces—in action,
but we found a chance to slip out
of the crowd and go back to the
car, so didn't get to see them, al
though we did hear them play to
gether over the car radio, and
very prettily too. only it was the
same piece we'd been hearing
since 2 a. m.
Then we came home, firm In
our conviction that we had learn
