Title Never Be Late
Description NEVER BE LATE Zada Thursby Seeley 1619 South 75 East Bountiful, Utah THIRD PLACE ANECDOTE My uncle, Charles H. Madsen (born 18 90) who was a school teacher and Principal in the Carbon County schools for many years, told me this story about his own school days in Ephraim. One day, Charles had the misfortune to rip his pants at school. He came home for a repair ]ob and for lunch. He asked his mother to mend the tear so he could return to school looking presentable. His mother agreed to mend the pants while he was eating his lunch. He replied, "Make it snappy, because I don' t want to be late! " In a short time, the clock struck one, and Charles grabbed his hat and made a wi Id dash for school. His mother hurried after him, waving his pants and calling him to stop. She managed to get his attention j ust as he was approaching the school house. He did get into his pants before he got into the school. that this was one occasion when he didn' t mind being a wee bit late. From interviews with Charles H. Madsen, in Bountiful, Utah, Nov. and Dec. 1978.
