THREE BELLS AND ALL'S WELL
'—Photo by Kay Sohriek
All may be well, but it’s still plenty cold in the air tower atop
the libe as the wee small morning hours roll around. Don Ellingson,
left, and Clinton Childs are two of many guards who give their
time to keep the watch for nearby planes, friend or foe. Their story
of the “night watch’’ as told to Emerald reporters at 3 a.m. yesterday
is reported below.

Well What’s Going On
^ By JACK BILLINGS
“Don’t shoot! Our eyes aren’t slanted, oee?”
There they cowered, close against the outside wall of an elevator
shaft, in the glare of a flashlight, the managing editor with a speed
graphic grasped in a shaking fist, the reporter with a small notebook
clenched between chattering teeth. Each was pointing to his occi
dental^ arched optics.
But that’s almost the end of the story. Let’s start at the begin

with ideas and a reporter who
thought he liked excitement. One
night, after the paper was all put
to bed and tucked in, the photog
rapher decided he wanted to get
some pictures of a real live ob
servation post. The nearest one
appeared to be on top of the
University library.

But of course the photographer
and reporter couldn’t just walk
up and say, “Hold it, boys’’ and
shoot_ the pictures. That was too
easy. They had to do it the hard
way. They had to sneak up and
“shoot ’em’’ when they weren’t
looking.
So, at 2:30 a.m. they kissed the
pressman good night and set off
through the street-lightless fog
to blaze new trails. Two-forty
five found them at the rear of
the library, barking shins and
things, looking for the fire es
cape leading to the roof. With
the speed graphic loaded, primed
and cocked, the photographer led
the way up a shaky step ladder
which made dubious connection
with the fire escape.
Remembering that two hands
were better than one the report
