editorials FAW4 Garden City Telegrai Monday, Jane 21, 1971 Four Months Long Enough Something may yet be done about the too long period of daylight time which begins during the school term in the spring and enda after school has resumed in late summer. Daylight time now stretches over nearly six months, from the last Sunday of April until the last Sunday in October. That's overdoing a good thing. The period would be considerably shortened under a bill recently ordered reported by the Senate Commerce Committee. Sponsored by Senator Marlow Cook (R-Ky.) the bill would set a new date for the beginning of the daylight saving period — Memorial Day — and would end daylight saving on Sept. 30 lopping about two months off the present period. Look for Cong. Keith Sebelius to take up the cudgel in the House. Coming from agriculture country, Sebelius knows the problems of the extended period of daylight time and has long been in favor of shortening it. Put simply, it is a pain in the neck to rural mothers who must put their children on school buses while it is still dark then struggle with them at bedtime because it is still light. And it is no help to farmers who must begin their work in darkness, or to drive-in theatre operators who have to delay their starting hour. Opposition will probably come from the tourist industry, which argues that to cut two months from the fast time period would lesson the opportunities by one hour each day of those two months. Those who feel they are being deprived of an extra hour of daylight for recreation may not look too kindly to the measure. But the disadvantages of the lengthy period of daylight time far outweigh the advantages. And the bill would only shorten the duration of daylight time, not eliminate it. The bill deserves the careful consideration of Congress.

No man is What he seems to be. No one. I had Willie Sutton pegged solidly as a bank robber, to his time, Willie opened more cans than Campbell'®. He never fired a shot, was polite to ladies and left the bank with all the lolly in a briefcase. Willie is not a modest man. "I think I can say," he says, "that I was the most careful thief that ever operated." If this is so, then why did he spend 35 of his 70 yeans behind bars? And why 5s 'it, now that WMe has seen "The Light," that be Is ready to be paid for T.

Jim Bishop One time t buddy talked and those years. As a reward, Sutton was givtrv a suit of clothes and $169. Peanuts. How can a guy with $169 and a record go straight? Who needs him? But Willie Button's story is different Every time he was cauight, he knew that he had made a mistake, not the police. He likes to think of himself a« a genitHeinvan bum. He was a glib actor who enjoyed robbing a bank and soothing the nerves of the lady employees. Re lives in a modest home near Sanasoita with a sister. Wiffi© says he has quit — hung up the gloves. 'But Willie is stiii the Actor. Recently, when Suttnm was introduced to a Swiss bamiker, the foreigner obviously did not recognize Sut- tom'is n/amie. The banker said: "M you ever come to Switzerland, I want you to promise me you'Jl come into my bank." Sutton flashed his big smile. "Resit assured," he said polite- "They checked it out of mah o\vu . '' library and threw it at me!" Jjjj JACK ANDERSON REPORTS: The only other reason for Willie's sudden penance is that the world of thievery has passed him by. I do mot know Chandler Brassard, but Brossard refers to Sutton as "King of the Bank Robgers." Not really. The mail train robbers in England got away with $7,000,000. The Brink'* robbers of Massachusetts make Sutton look Ike a kid snatching pennies from a church poor box. If it is true that Willie was the BEST then all bank vaults are aafe and we can keep the money in shoe boxes. On the sidewalk.

The memo aoso indicates Sen. John Pas/tore, D-R.I., a key member of the committee shaping auto safety legislation, is talking out of both sides of baa mouth. The company apparently found a Ford dealer in Baa- tore's home state who is close to the Senator. Bob Tasoa, a Providence Ford dealer and follow Mian-American, was asked to talk to Pastore. In a report on the conversation, Ford's community affairs manager, Richard Powers, wrote: "The Senator . . . toM Bob that when a consumer issue is before him amd the cameras ante on, he is not about to be anything but supportive of the issue." But the memo went on: "The Senator reiterated that 'we will handle the situation.'
