Logonsport In the Past When Doctors Disagree CST, DST or EST- Time Is Still Muddled Indiana's new "time" law, passed by the state legislature, which provides for .state-wide Central Standard Time, apparently will do little .to clear up the annual confusion regarding the time question, because the bill as passed and signed has no teeth in it to enforce uniformly. - Hardly had the bill been passed before several cities Immediately investigated the effect of the bill, and the general conclusion seems to be that most cities will continue to do as they see fit regarding summer time schedules. Peru has already indicated that on midnight as of the last Sunday in April it will set its clocks ahead one hour the 1 same as last year, unless the new law is clarified to make it binding on municipalities which have already passed daylight saving ordinances. It is not likely that, " any "clarification" or changes will be effected in the new, "statute to make it binding. Logansport last year likewise passed a permanent ordinance placing daylight savings time into effect dur- - ing the summer months. What effect the new law passed by the legislature will have on this ordinance is not as yet known, and undoubtedly will depend in large part , on the action taken by other cities in the state. Hoosier cities near Chicago are cheeking the effects : of the new state law, and have indicated that they will •" step around it. Included in this group are Hammond, Gary, East Chicago, Whiting, South Bend, Ft. Wayne, and Indianapolis. The chief objection to standard time by northern cities is that their economy is tied very ^ closely, to the city of Chicago. ' • "• Industries throughout the state have stated that year-round central standard time would place them two hours behind the schedule of the firms they work with, during the summer months. Rural people, who generally prefer standard time, will have gained little by the pass- • •~ age of the new time bill if cities throughout the state do not adhere to central standard time. :.. The great majority of Hoosiers had hoped the legislature would pass some time bill which would provide uniformity and include provisions for enforcement. The •:; newly passed time bill has no provision for repeal of city •"' ordinances already passed, and carries with it no teeth .-..' for enforcement. As a result, we have gained nothing '•'•-' with the legislation and undoubtedly will face the same confusion as has existed in the past.
