The Value of Day Light SIT and figure it out it mein to have uvo hun drod hours more of daylight which costs' nothing and have the Bsme number less- of darkness, which Cost's mon-ey to dispel 'or .illuminate, Think what it 'would mean to -have two hundred .more hours of sunshine with all its health-giving pro- perties and the same number less 01 darkness, all during our waking; and hours. That is merely v ay of stating 'the benefit of. the adop- tion of a daylight saving measure. It would be very simple. By putting the clock forward one hour some set day in 'April and back the hour some day in September, the waking hours of the people of Canada would in- clude two hundred 'hours more o hours.more of natural light arid two hundred less of artificial light, two hundred hours of efficient Hght that costs'nothing, and bvb Hundred hours less of inefficient .and.'ofteu, harmful light that costs in both money and eyesight.
