IS DAYLIGHT TIME OPEN RESISTANCE WIPKD OUT? A three-day search has failed to turn up this year one of those Custcr's last stands against daylight saving time. Like the Indian-fighting general, some Individualist always, had gotten his name in print by holding off the hordes and refusing to pny any attention to the pushed-ahead clocks. But this year it is different. The reporter checked the countryside whore an outpost of resistance always could be found. Nothing showed up. One area resident, talking in confidential tones, said that that didn't mean there weren't folks who thought the business made no sense. "There just Isn't any use protesting", ho said. He winked. "Maybe we have gone underground". ' It's not like the old days, he added. He could remember some mighty noble stands against the encroachment of daylight on a man's waking hours. "The fellow I remember best is a hired hand on one of the farms around here," he said, "lie not only was aginst the frigida//e Sa/e« and Service Dial 3-7721—Alter 30 Dial 2-0430 DIA THEATRE HIV Cottage Hills | TONITE - THURS.

He explained that ftis man ignored rails from the farmhouse which would get him out of the field for a noon lunch hour. That to him was eleven o'clock and if you argued he showed you his Big Ben pocket watch which said so. "The first rrw days the farm wife went along with his cantankerousness and heated up the dinner when he came in from Ihe field at one o'clock, which was twelve o'clock his time," the suspected underground leader said. She got tired of that in a little bit, he added and began to ignore him. "Dinner's over", she would said huffily. The poor fellow would take a drink of water and trek out to the field without any food. "Ffe didn't die but he got mighty wasted before he gave in, although ho didn't desert his principles", the man said. "He would come in at the regular dinner time and announce, 'Eleven o'clock ain't no time to have dinner', but he would dive in and eat." He never did set his watch ahead, though, and eventually drifted out of the neighborhood. Probably went to some place where they never hoard of daylight time, he ended. Some farm churches used to vote on whether to observe Jigyt savJrtf t»m* ttt their areas but none of flint has been done in the past few years. "We could never overthrow the folks who were for it", one farm wife said. "So we stopped bringing it up for a vote." Anyway, she added, so many farmers now have members of their family driving in to town to work in the industries that even if the majority voted to ignore the changed time, it would cause many households to be divided against themselves. Daylight saving time has its good points besides those which are obvious, several said. It's something you can be mad at openly and most people listen to you with attention when you harangue against it. Which proves that despite the acceptance of it, folks haven't decided if they like it or not. A prize Dobermann Pinscher belonging to Mrs. G.
