CHICAGO BANKS TO SAVE DAY
LIGHT. A stop toward adoption by tho big
Chicago banks of u. summer daylight
saving plan wns taken Tuesday by
James D, Forgan, chairman of tho Chi
cago clearing houso committee. Mr.
Forgan, who also Is chnirman of tho
directors of the First National Bank,
started nn Inquiry to ascertain how
much injury to business will result
from being two hours behind tho Now
York banks and the stock exchange.
"Failure of the city council to adopt
tho daylight saving plan is a keen dis
appointment," Mr. Forgan said. "As
soon ns I can havo a survey mado of
the situation ns it affects tho banks, I
shall call n meeting of tho clearing
houso commlttco to discuss advancing
the banking day an hour. Then wo
will call n meeting of tho clearing
house to take final action."
"We can hardly conllnuo ns nt pres
ent for a month. Tho difference in
time means u day's delay In mall de
liveries in many cases. It means a
grave handicap in transactions be
tween tho two big financial centers of
the country, Now York nnd Chicago.
It ulso means tho paymont of an ex
tra day's interest on largo sums.
"Ono thousand of our peoplo In tho
bank havo signed a petition urging
advancing tho hours, opening at 9 nnd
closing at 2 o'clock."
