They kept the telephones in the Ari zona Republican office busy last night asKing :ust when they were to get that extra hour of sleep. The office force wasn't sure. They never sleep anyway. But to accommodate the public the office force tapped the offi cial source and ascertained the exact date the time was to be changed. The clocks will be turned back mid night, October 12.
