Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 29, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Barnyard hysteria expected Sunday EDM9NTON (CP) There's likely to be a bit of hysteria in Allwrta's barn- yards Sunday morning when dawn doesn't arrive on sched- ule. The sun, which normally peeks over the Prairie iir scape here at a.m. on April 30, won't be up until a.m., much to the confu- sion of the roosters. Alberta joins the other prov- inces tonight in turning the clocks ahead to adopt to day- light time. It will be the first lime change in Alberta in more than 25 years. Daylight time was banned here in 1948, chiefly because t h e province's early-rising rural population was against It. It's been a hot topic of dis- cusslon between city and country folk since, with the rural people always winning the last Au- gust. In the Aug. 30 provincial el- ection voters approved day- light lime with votes or 62.75 per cent in favor and against. Four years earlier, the issue was lost when per cent of the electorate- voted against it and were in favor. Last year's vole was taken as a good indication of how the urban centres are absorb- ing people from dying rural communities. I'AKMERS OPPOSED Alberla farmers tradition- ally have been against day- light time because, they say, stealing an hour from morn- ing to give to evening, upsets their operations. People In the cities, how- ever, say the extra hour of sunshine at night gives them more time to enjoy golfing, gardening and the other plea- sures of summer. One of the greatest argu- ments against the lime change has been that there's never any shorlagc of day- light during Alberta summers. Edmonton, just south of the province's centre, gets about 18 hours of daylight during midsummer. The north gels a little more, and the south a little less. Come June 21, the longest day of the year, the sun won't set until p.m. mountain daylight time in Edmonton and it won't really be dark until after 11 p.m. Those who favored daylight time agree there's enough light In June. But, they say, there's been a shortage of it in early and late summer. GO HOME IN DARK Sunday night, the sun would have been gone at p.m. slandard time. On Aug. 30, it would have been down at and on Oct. 29. when daylight lime ends, Alberlans who work 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. would have been driving home in darkness. Sunrise in Edmonton Ihis year will be a.m. on June 21, about a.m. Aug. 30 and a.m. Oct. 29. For good or for bad. there'll have to be adjustments. Milk men and farmers will have to exchange chill dawns fo sunny evenings, mothers wi! have to convince screaming children thai Ihey have to to bed when the sun's shining and drive-in theatre operator will have to wait a liltl longer before rolling thi projectors.
