WEATHER Rata ixed wtth nm mew tonight. Low 31-15. Cloudy and continued eold Wednesday with chance of a few snow flurries. Northerly winds 8-16 an hour. High In the lower 40s. Thursday outlook: Fair and continued cold. During a recent holiday, this sign was posted in a tavern: you're enjoying our color TV. you've had enough, ll a black-and-white set." Vr0L. 72 NO. 20 Tuesday, Nov. 1,1966 HARK THE HERALD It's About It Is apparent now that Dubois County wiH remain on fsst time this winter. The Jasper City Council held a special meeting Monday night and, in effect, reaffirmed the and see" policy which had been set forth at its regular meeting earlier in the month. Since the county usually follows the time pattern set by Jasper, we conclude that Dubois County will-stay on fast time. Late last week there seemed to be a strong indication that Jasper's council' would agree Monday night to return the clocks to standard time, as provided by the federal law. However, at the conclusion of discussion, the policy of watchful waiting still1 stood. Just what they are waiting for Is not quite clear to us. The Indiana General Assembly has been mentioned. The state legislature does have an option it can exercise in Implementing the federal time taw, but how it would affect us: The Uniform Time Act of 1966, psssed last April by Congress, provides that daylight saving time will be the rufe throughout the nation, starting the last Sunday in April and ending the last Sunday in October. A state may exempt itself from daylight saving time by an act of Its legislature, however this exemption MUST apply to the entire state. Therefore, IF the 1967 Indiana General Assembly would take action to exempt the state, then under the federal taw, Indiana would remain year around on STANDARD time. This would mean that Dubois County would stay on slow time the year around! IF the General Assembly would take NO action in its 1967 session, then Indiana would have six months of slow time and six months of fast time. This Is highly unlikely, however, since 43 counties are now on Eastern 8tandard Time year around now and would then wind up with EASTERN daylight time next summer. In effect, it would be daylight for them. In other words, If the legislature exempts Indiana, we stay year around on slow time (unless we want to violate the federal law); If the legislature does nothing about It, we would be six months on stow time and six months on fast time. The only way we could possibly wind up with year around time (legally) would be for a petition to be presented to and granted by the Interstate Commerce Commission officially moving the Eastern Standard Time zone west to the Illinois border. There are some who are under the impression that the Uniform Time Law does not become effective until April, 1967. We beg to differ. Section 6 states: Act shall take effect on April 1, 1967; EXCEPT that If any State, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, or any possession of the United States, or any political subdivision thereof, observes daylight saving time in the year 1966, such time shall advance the standard time otherwise applicable in such ptace by one hour and shall commence at 2 antemeridian on the last Sunday In April of the year 1966 and SHALL END at 2 antemeridian on the last Sunday in October of the year The raw gives the Interstate Commerce Commission authority to enforce the Act by application to a U.S. District Court; however, ICC officials have indicated that there would be no strict enforcement until next year. Enforcement or not, we still firmly believe that this area has no excuse for not complying with the Uniform Time Act of 1966 NOW. We are flrmiy convinced that the majority of our citizens do not want ysar-around fast time.
