At a moment when the University is meditating as to the wisdom of moving recitations ahead one hour, Mr. Storrow has come out on the side of the daylight-savers.
In spite of the fact that Mr. Storrow is fuel administrator and therefore is naturally in favor of any movement to save coal, his statement is of great influential value. Mr. Storrow is a man of business ability; he would not urge us to take such a drastic move if it were not worth while. The importance of the new daylight plan as advocated by the Student Council comes not so much from the fact that we shall probably save considerable fuel by acting as Mr. Storrow advocates, but rather because such a move would be an example to the entire country. Harvard's lead has been followed by other communities in the past. There is no reason to believe that our move to save fuel will be merely a local one. We need not fear that we shall become an oasis in a reckless coal-using nation.
