Without ' a dissenting vote, representa
tives of the majority of the manufactur
ing plants of the town at a conference in
the Chambter "of Commerce rooms Thurs
day afternoon went on record as in favor
of daylight saving, voted to put the day
light saving plan isto effect at their
plants Monday morning next, and recom
mended that the town- school board con
cur by placing the town schools on the
daylight saving schedule at the same
time. 1
From what transpired at the confer
ence of the manufacturers, the town
school board and representatives of sev
eral of the leading mercantile establish
ments of the city, and the Connecticut
company, there- seems to be but little
doubt but that the daylight saving plan
will be practically universal in the town
beginning Monday morning.
Of. the dozen or more manufacturing
plants represented at the meeting, "only
one, the United States Finishing com
pany, declined to adopt daylight saving
next Monday. John F. Rogers, who was
present as the Finishing company's rep
resentative, informed the conference that
a notice was posted at the plant Thurs
day morning to the effect that his-com-
pany will continue to operate -'on stan
dard time until public sentiment" for day
light saving is more pronounced. Mr.
Rogers stated after the conference that
the action taken by the manufacturers
will -have no immediate effect on the no
tice posted at .the Finishing company's
plant, and that " the company will con
tinue to operate on standard time. How
ever, if public sentiment for daylight
saving becomes more pronounced, in his
opinion, the Finishing company will then
adopt and operate on the new time.
After ascertaining the attitude of the
manufacturers present at the meeting,
the town school boasd assured the con
ference that they will fall in line with
the lead set by the majority of the
plants, this carrying out a previous vote
by the school board that their action
would be in line witft the action of the
Announcement in Schools.
Superintendent Graham will have the
announcement made today (Friday) in
the public schools, of the town, of .the
change of time for Monday. ' The school
clocks will not be changed 'but tire time
for the school sessions will .be advanced
one hour.
Asked over the telephone Thursday
night what" the Norwich Free Academy
would do, Principal H. A. Tirreil said he
was waiting, to see what the manufac
turers and the public schoois would do.
When informed of the action taken at the
conference Thursday afternoon, he said
the Academy would follow that action
and he wouid expect to make the an
nouncement in school Friday. ' 1
. Merchants to Meet.
It was announced at the conference
that the merchants are to hold a meeting
today (Friday), at which they wiil act on
the daylight saving matter. As they have
previously indicated that they will follow
the manufacturers and schppi hoard in
adopting the daylight savins schedule, it
is believed that they wiil now vote to
fall in line, which wiil resuit in daylight
saving time becoming reneral in the
community. 'Norwich win thus be on! an
even time schedule for 'the summer with
the neighboring city of New. London to
the south -and the communities of Put
nam and Danielson to the north, as well
as with the largest and most progressive
cities of the state besides Massachusetts
and most of New England and New York.
Mills Represented at Meeting.
Charles F. Wells, president of the
Chamber of Commerce, presided at the
meeting, which was caIK-1 at j o'clock.
Among the concerns represented were the
The Shetucket Co'., the FaUs Co., the
United States Finishing Co.. Ko!b Carton
Co., Internationa! Silver Co.. United
Metal Co., J. B. Martin Co., Bavis-War-
ner Arms Co., Bra, nerd & krmstrong,

Richmond Radiator Co.. American Wool

Joseph Hall & Sons, Gien Woolen miil,

Co., and Sussman & Silverberg Mattress
The members of the town school board,
E. W. Blake of the Connecticut Co.,
Charles I. Smith of the Boston store,
John M. Lee of Porteous & Mitchell and
Will L. Stearns of the F. A. Weils Co.
were also present.
President' Weiis stated briefly the ob
ject of the conference, which he said was
to secure some definite action on the day
houhs. Mr. Rogers said his main office
is on daylight saving time. X!e concluded
by saying that he will stand pat on his
notice until there is some indication that
public sentiment is largely in favor of
daylight saving.
President Wells said he understood
that 70 per cent, of the employes of the
lPonemah company want daylight saving
and that he other 30 per. cent, are
against it. .
E. Howard Baker of the Shetucket Co.
said his employes are in favor of daylight
saving, and A. Chester Brown, agent of
the Falls mill, said his employes are
strongly in favor of daylight saving. ,
Secretary O'Riurke said he- understood
that the American Thermos plant is
about evenly divided on th-5 quesrion.
IFor the School Board.
The attitude of the school board was
then sought. B. P. Bishop, chairman of
the board, said the board was not very
far from where they were before the
town meeting of Wednesday night. We
are just as much at sea. even more so.
he said. Mr. Bishop said that in his
opinion two is not a majority in a Ques
tion of this kind (referring to the ma
jority of two in the' vote favoring day
light saving at the town meeting Wed
nesday night).
Mr. Bishop said the school board did
not feel that they were in a position to
take the lead in the matter. Ours is a
public institution, governed by state. laws.
It puzzles U3 how to best serve the pub
lic and our children. We are willing to
fall in line in the daylight saving matter
if it is generally wanted. " The legislature
made the law forbidding city and town
governments to adopt daylight saving,
and the governor signed it. What did
he sign it. for? You do the Uring and
we wiil fail , in line.- .
President Wells requested all manufac
thTers present who are in favor of op
erating on daylight saving to stand up.
I'racticaiiy every manufacturer in the
room stood in res;.Snse to the request.
At the close or the meeting, aaut 6
o'clock, the prevailing opinion was that
practically every plant in the town will
operate on the daylight saving schedule
beginning Monday morning. Several of
t'ne manufacturers, including A. Chester
lirown of the. Falls Co., Charles J. Twist
of the Shetucket Co. and Charles F.
Wells of the United Metal Co.. stated af-
tr the mc-tini.- thai they will post no
tices in their plants to the effect that the
new time schedule will begin Monday
