Today -100: April 25, 1921: Of clocks and ghosts

The Connecticut Legislature’s law rejecting Daylight Saving (which went into effect yesterday, er, some places) is being flouted by Hartford and other cities, and the Legislature is threatening to declare the capital city in rebellion and suspend its charter. New Hampshire is not setting its clocks ahead either. It ordered the Boston and Maine Railroad not to use Daylight Saving in its time-table within the borders of the state, but the B&M is ignoring them. Yesterday some churches across the country used Standard Time and some didn’t.
