NATION'S CLOCKS WILL BE MOVED AHEAD AT 2 TONIGHT
IN FORCE FOR 7 MONTHS
In accordance with the "daylight-saving" bill which was signed by President Wilson on the 19th of this month, all clocks throughout the country will be advanced one hour at 2 o'clock tomorrow morning. The law will remain in effect until the last Sunday in October, when time-pieces will be set back to their present schedule.
Follow England's Example.
Following the example of England and the other warring countries, the United States has adopted this policy in order to conserve fuel by taking advantage of the extra hour of daylight in the early morning which is wasted under ordinary conditions. An hour of light in the evening will also result from this change, thus giving more time for farming and other outdoor work before dark.
Members of the University will have their first opportunity to observe the variation in time at the Sunday services tomorrow morning. The clock in the tower of Memorial Hall will strike two and three in quick succession tonight, cutting out 60 minutes, which will not be made up until next fall. Drills and classes on Monday morning will also come an hour earlier.
The daylight-saving bill was introduced in Congress by Senator Caldwell this winter and passed both Houses with practically no opposition.
