Hagerstown Has Sufficient Coal Hagerstown will not be caught short by John L. Lewis' six-day mourning- period for the blast victims of Centralia, 111., local coal dealers reported Monday. The city has an ample supply of the black- fuel on hand with more in transit and with warm weather coming closer by the day, no hardship is anticipated here. Local dealers said ihat even if they wouldn't get a shipment for two weeks or more they could still meet all reasonable demands. Hagerstown is so situated, they said, that coal shipped from West Virginia and Pennsylvania mines are usually on local coal yard trestles within three to four days and in customer's cellars within another dav. • NOW SHOWING « CONTINUOUS 1 To 11 P.M.

That is what used to happen. Twenty or 25 vears ago all industry began work •u 1 iu the morning, and that is what the majority of people want. The farmer objects to setting the clocks ahead, because regardless of whether they are set one hour, wo hours, or six hours ahead they •annot work their crops until after the dew has dried off. If advancing the time gives more daylight, then if a 'man gets .vungry at 9 in the morning he can just twiddle his watch up to 12 noon, and he can go home and sit down to the dinner table and it is dinner time.

It is rather surprising to read the arguments presented for the adoption of the so-called "daylight saving time" by persons o£ our community who are reputed to be intelligent persons. And yet they advance the argument that it will give an extra hour of daylight for recreation, working home gardens, etc. Most all the arguments are so ridiculous as to amuse anyone. The sun will rise on its schedule and set on its schedule just the same, whether you set the clocks forward one minute, one hour, or one week. Man cannot change that. It is silly to think that by setting the clocks out of line you Fountain Service t Cauffman's Cut Rate 30 E. Washington St. Patent Medicines Sundrfet \ Cosmetics — Magazine!

Consider the terrific expense and'wasted paper that we read about being almost unobtainable when our great railroad and transportation companies are obliged to cast away all the advertising literature, time schedules, etc., and have others printed to conform to the change in time.

Hut it is so silly, and yet our supposedly intelligeut citizens make so much ado about it. So I must say we are only kidding ourselves. We won't have any more or less daylight whether we set our clocks up or T^ack. It's just as silly as the little hoy who walke'd into the theater hack- ward, thinking the ticket-taker would think he was coming out. So why not be sensible? Sensible.
