' fc "In - and • out, back - and - forth, crazy and inconsistent, that's what . the time situation is," says Robert H. <Kane,'"and something' to be done about it." ; What Mr. Kane is referring to ; is the longstanding feud 'between cities on; daylight time and cities on standard time.- Their refusal to give in and be compatible is costing us millions of annual headaches and "dollars. ' "The. radio-TV networks ' alone say they lost about. $2,000.000 a year because of this inconsistency," says Kane, president and founder of the.National Time Research Institute, Inc., "and railroads, airlines and stock exchanges are also hit hard through the summer months. Not to mention," he; adds sadly, "the 1 average guy who 'wants '.o go someplace like Portland, Oregon. . ('"Why, he's got to call Portland to.get the straight dope on what .time he's going • to arrive—and lliat city changes its mind on time so often-.I'll bet there are even some Portlanders who' don't know what time it is" : «;' Kane is not bitter, understand. ^He's • just aggravated, that the otherwise clever, technically advanced. United States have mud- z dled along so. inconveniently — clock-wise—for more than 30 years. Daylight' time (which is Belting the clocks ahead to give "one more hour of daylight in the isummer) was introduced in World War 1 as "war time." ; "And since them,"-he says, "the country has never been able to make up its mind whether it wants to or hot.. As a result, we have about a 50-50 breakdown of standard vs. daylight 1 areas. Some states like Ohio^-man, it's crazylherc!—i are all split up within themselves, about'half the cities on day,...'and half on standard." Kane, who is a public relations director for a construction com pahy, took up his time studies in 1950. after he ; missed a news'con- ference which he, himself,,' ha< set up n Boston; ''Hi was I tc know that staid old Boston would have been modern enough to' go daylight?" he remembers., /' He was an hour late to his own party, and .the reporters were furious. Kane was ' hysterical. He checked up and discovered, thai no federal agency was keeping track of times, around the country, so he took it on as a hobby. U has now turned into a life's work. "I'm a daylight man myself,' fie.admits, "but.I'd sooner see the entire country settle for standard time than be undecided and inconsistent as" The chief opponents to daylight time, he says, are these: . (0 Theatre .owners,'whose busi- nes would be hui-t 'by the extra daylight hour;',2T Farmers, whose fathers had the notion that cows don't, produce as much milk on daylight time, and'31 A small percentage of 'mothers the country over, who say they can't get the kiddies'to bed while the sun's up. Kane thinks he can 'overcome these objections. He is setting up a committee .of experts to investigate the inconsistencies, the cost of same, the individual needs and wants of industries and private citizens, and make a report on the ;. lie is pretty certain the report will come out heavily weighted in favor of daylight time and then, report in hand, he will approach civic groups—city by city, slate by state. "Eventually." he hopes,. "and perhaps within five or six years, [ foresee. our. working up to the federal level." Oh. joyous day! Then everybody. — excluding [overs, of course—will know what time it is in Portland. Lion* Oub Honor* Sunday Times Editor ,J.

Note; Mother In concerned about girl H. who'j too thy to ipeak : in clasi. : . DEAR AlARY HAWORTH: 1 have a daughter 14 years o£ age who, since she was able to talk, has been shy and backward. When she tries to talk-, words fall her. In short, she cannot enter'a conk versatidn because las she tells us) she doesn't know what to say. However, she is—as everyone remarks—a very ; attractive am prelly girl. We have her in a very good private school for girls—but, as it happens, almost all their class work is oral. The other day she was called upon for some Latin work.,and got confused over the answer, and the class all laughed at her—which made matters worse. •Janet is a freshman, and doesn't want to stay in this school, not nnly because of the« incident mentioned, but also because the girls are all snobs. Oh yes. last year her room teacher, told us that she has an Inferiority complex, which of course we knew. We have suggested to Janet that sh< transfer to public school — but she asks: How am I going to answer the questions put to me? She says that if just she and the teacher were alone together, she could answer; but the class being there makes her afraid when she tries to answer, so she can't say anything; she just stands there. Janet is very popular with boys but hasn't the same good fortune .with girls—only with the one who| is close to. her. Is there any help: for her? We are at our wits' end, "trying to solve this problem.: Please advise me what to do. ; ' D. S. 'Girl Bears Brunt •Ql Family Trait ':. DEAR D. S.: It strikes me that^ •'Janet is bearing the brunt of anj ^inferiority complex that runs in ;the family. It occurs to me that ?you, her mother, have been slriv- ;ing to make her the social success that you never were (at least from your viewpoint). You've wanted to ''spare" her the miseries you suffered from "backward" feelings in childhood, maybe. . As I get the pitch, the family is anxiously exercised to try to "change" or "help" or "improve 1 Janet's verbal and social pcrfor- ,rnance, so that she will be win somely at .ease before . audience. And taking into ..account,.her naturally sensitive, finely formed temperament, I daresay this : critically concentrated attitude on the part of the family is, by now, • about 70.percent responsible for k her frozen terror, when asked to ".recite in class. ... The most and the best that anyone can do for Janet is to help her be herself — that is, to relate to situations spontaneously, without .feeling a need to measure,up to .somebody's "expectations." 1 Andl without straining to "overcome" 1 certain characteristic "handicaps," etc. . Janet's personality needs the support of understanding, appreciative endorsement—forthcoming from certain key persons whose judgment she trusts, and who are generally admired • and socially able. She needs to feel fondly okayed, "as is." by some few whose preference carries might. Mother Isn't. A Glared To Help It .is sadly obvious that you aren't psychologically geared to breathe relaxed self-esteem into Janet, or to give her a life when she feels inadequate. Rather t she sees her worst tears magnified in your stricken •eyes, as you agonize inwardly over her "failures" (as they seem to you)—and see in her a repeat, as it were, of your hidden griefs. There is help for Janet, of course. A good psychologist in family rela lions, working. with,, and through you — after studying the situation firsthand — ought to make a big difference for the better. The specialist should give you corrective insight into your own anxiety neurosis, which fosters Janet's difficulty. And it may prove advisable to take Janet out of school for a term and provide private tutoring to keep her abreast of her classes, while she gathers confidence in herself'and iearns to think and speak on her feet. In the town through which you write, there are several community, agencies offering specialist know- low. Among them are the Family and Children's Service, the Child Guidance Center and the Hospital Psychiatric Clinic. — M. H. Mary Haworth counsels through her column, not by m«il or personal Interview.
