You probably lost an hour's sleep on Saturday night when " Summer-Time" came into force and you had to get up an hour earlier than usual Sunday morning.
If you went to early Mass you had to get up very early indeed. Perhaps you enjoyed tasting the morning air for a change and wondered why you didn't always get up at that hour.
But many hard-workers (and others) weren't at all pleased at the prospect of losing an hour's valuable, blissful unconsciousness. Many got up at the usual time and went to a later Mass.
But at the Holy Family church, Mossend, Glasgow. they had a very good idea. They didn't put the clocks on until after Mass.
So the parishioners didn't lose any sleep —until Monday morning.
The parish priest, the Rev. T. Flannagan, stated that the entire congregation was well pleased with the arrangement, which was not upsetting anyone.
There is nothing curious, he said, in one part of the community observing the usual Greenwich hours for a few hours longer, while another section has switched over to " summer-time."
