Title Tick-Tack
Description TICK-TACK Shirley Anderson Eahlmann Logan, Utah Non-Professional Division First Honorable Mention Anecdote In Che spring of 1873, Hakan Anderson built a new adobe bouse in Mt. Pleasant, Utah, and lived there with his wife, Cecilia, and their six young children. One night he was awakened by a ticking sound. He listened intently, trying to figure out what the sound was. Finally, he jumped out of bed and went outside. When he passed the window, the ticking stopped, so he ran to the other side of the house to see if he could find out why. The ticking started find the culprit. Every time he passed the window, the ticking would stop. It was a bright moonlit night, and Hakan's young children were delighted 3t the sight of their daddy tunning around Finally Hakan stopped running and began to feel around the top of the window pane. He reached high, grabbed hold of a string, then gave a mighty pull. A group of boys burst out laughing from behind the woodpile where they were hidden. They had tied a nail to the end of a length of string which was stretched across the roof. Every time they tugged the string, the nail would tick against the window. Hakan gathered up the nail and the string and, laughing heartily, went inside to tell his family what had happened. He had had as much fun with it as Che boys, and afcer the Anderson family had a good laugh, they all settled dowo for a quiet night's sleep. P- 43. -34-
