I am just reading John Dunning's novel, Two O'Clock Eastern Wartime.
Dunning says that Congress passed the law for Daylight Savings time in Feb
1942, to give an extra hour for wartime maneuvers.  It took on the name,
Wartime.  Do these books verify that?  Interesting thesis, anyway, and I
think he's making an effort to be accurate.  And it sure is a good read.
