When daylight savings time was abandoned for the year, Mr. Schafer could have, if he set his mind to it, with 200 clocks, have saved a total of 200 hours. A backlog of 200 hours in Mount Pulaski would go a long way. As a matter of fact, tho, Mr. Schafer keeps only about 20 clocks oper- ating, as he considers thse ample for telling the time. Mr. Schafer has spring clocks, weight clocks, clocks with wood- en works.

Mr. Schafer also has a dinosaur's tooth, which doesn't have anything to do with time, except time ran out on this dino- saur, and it didn't need the tooth any more.
