The majority of us deplore the failure of Congress to retain the Daylight Saving Bill. The opposition which destroyed it seems to have come from the Middle West, and possibly from the less evident, but all-powerful gas and electric light interests. New York City, by passing its own daylight saving ordinance, shows that it realizes the manifold benefits accruing from the Federal enactment and that it does not plan to await Congressional action.

The metropolis points the way. In such a fashion should every city, town and village drive home to its representatives the idea that the majority must rule. The objection of many who decry chronological isolation is answered by those communities and industrial organizations which had daylight saving ordinances of their own in pre-war times and suffered not at all from the experience. Let us stand solidly behind Boston and Massachusetts in any action insuring for us those innumerable benefits which we have enjoyed during the past two summers.
