Halford Lucock says, "I was impressed several years ago when I read the Eugene
Ormandy dislocated a shoulder while directing the Philadelphia Orchestra. I do not know
what they were playing, but he was giving all of himself to it! And I have asked myself
sadly, 'Did I ever dislocate anything, even a necktie?'"

When he was pastor for the Methodist church in Scarborough, William Sangster had an eccentric
member who tried to be a zealous Christian. Unfortunately, the man was mentally deficient
and usually did the wrong thing. While working as a barber the man lathered up a customer
for a shave, came at him with the poised razor, and asked, "Are you prepared to meet
your God?" The frightened man fled with the lather on his face!
