way out A House Commerce subcom mittee will take up and likely approve a bill Tuesday thai overhauls the US time system and attempts to bring order oul of whal Ihe Inlcrslate Com merce Commission calls in creasing chaos in American time A similar bill was approved by the Senate Commerce Com mittee No public opposition has arisen so far and there jusl may be enough time left to push Ihe bill through Congress before the session ends Basically the bill would set up uniform areas that would move their clocks ahead and back at the same times every year For Ihe most part the bill would do away with situations in which one comniunily is on standard time and the town next door on daylight time According lo testimony before the House subcommittee the country has such situations ga lore The bill now before Congress would Iry to end the nalions confusing time situation with thcsf provisions The United Slates except for Alaska and Hawaii would be divided as now into four zones Eastern Cenlral Moun tain and Pacific In addition a new Atlantic zone would be created This would be off the East Coast and not over any mainland at all in the winter months In the summer months all time zones including the new Atlantic zone would shift west This would move clocks ahead an hour uniformly over the en tire country The Central Stan dard Time zone would then be come the Eastern Standard Time zone during the summer only A person living in the Central Slan dard Time zone would have to use Ihe lerm Easlern Slandard Time for Ihe same thing we now refer to as Central Daylight Time Daylight saving limewould begin on the last Sunday in April and end on the last Sunday In October The bill would require all federal agencies common car riers and communications by wire or radio to use this time system It Is assumed that this would persuade all local com munities lo adopt the new lem PARRIS ISLAND S C Privates theres just one way to gel off this island alive lhals to graduate off Thus Drill Instructor Clar ence Palmer recently greeted his scraggly platoon of recruits who still in civilian clothes and long haircuts tried to stand at attention Tht Marine Corps here gained worldwide notoriety in 195C when another drill instructor S Sgt Matthew C McKeon marched his platoon of recruits into a tidal swamp one night and six of his men drowned Following an investigation the Commandant of the Corps promised sweeping changes Within the following year 13 drill instructors were disciplined for actions involving physical abuse of recruits This was in addition to several other cases thai did not come to trial be cause the charges were dis missed How sweeping were the changes and how tough is the training today Are recruits still subjected to physical abuse Are there accidents in training today Two of the questions can be answered easily The training is tough today Probably tougher than ever before And there are accidents in training in which men are in jured It is impossible to give tins kind of vraining without somebody getting hurl But considerable if not sweep ing changes have been made Physical abuse on the part of the drill instructor is either non existent or so well hidden that it has not come to light in years A builtin system of checks and balances strangely trends to hide slight abuse If a re cruit gets a beating its apt to come from his fellow recruits for not assuming his share of the work rather than the once feared drill instruclor Palmer and all the other drill instructors know they have one day to show I h e recruit or bool who is boss So from the minute he meets the DI the boot is constantly subject to his harsh scornful domi neering personality Within Hio three minutes of facing his new platoon the DI has won more than half his battles An hour later he has shown 80 per cent of his men he is lop dog A week later only about Iwo lo five per cent of the bools have refused to ac knowledge Ihc supreme au thority of the drill instructor These are channeled into special platoons The boot is allowed to report his DI for any physical abuse but pride in himself and his pla loon makes him very reluctant to do so It becomes a matter of If the rest of the guys can take it I can too The OI still reigns supreme over his men but his powers have been somewhat curtailed and his actions arc more close ly supervised by officers Hazing is no longer allowed Things like making a man run until he drops or do pushups until lie collapses are out In his campaign hat which is the outward symbol of his position every DI carries a card which specifies the maxi mum number of exercises he is allowed lo give his men in spe cified Icmperalures As the heal increases Ihe amount of stren uous exercise is reduced The DI himself is of the mosl carefully selecled men in the entire Corps First he is a volunteer for the job Then he is very carefully screened and his character both in the Corps and before he enlisted is thor oughly investigated Officers here feel that the chance of a man with sadislic tendencies becoming a drill in structor are negligible Does al this pay off The Marine Corps says em phatically yes
