Time Clock Gets Rough Treatment
ST. LOUIS, Mo. (AP) — That time clock recently installed in the basement of City Hall has not been well received by city employees.
It was installed so that elevator operators and custodial employees could punch in when they come to work and when they leave.
The same day someone literally punched the clock in the face, breaking the glass. After that it didn’t keep time very well. And it didn’t make much of an impression on the time cards.
Now comes word from Building Commissioner Kenneth Brown that repairmen have found more evidence that someone doesn’t like the timepiece. Brown said battery acid has been poured into the mechanism.
The saxophone was invented in 1840 by the Belgian instrument maker, Adolph Sax, from whom the instrument takes its name.
