The delav in the hearing is due
to the condition of Miss Gilliland,
who has been able to leave the
hospital following treatment,' but
is yet not able to be out.
The case is an outirrowth of the
"hazards" of dating two boys in
one evening. Everett Mitchell had
a date with Evelyn Campbell to
take her to the Little Rock church
In the Plott Creek section. He was
to leave her as they passed his
home and young Woody was to es
cort her the remainder of the way.
Mitchell refused to leave the girl
and Woody is alleged to have shot
into the crowd of young people
gathered at the girl's home and
Margaret Gilliland and Glenn
Lunsford. both Innocent bystand
ers, were hit. They were taken to
the county hospital for treatment.
T.iinnford was able to leave in a
few hours, but Miss Gilliland was

Tn enmnliance with the request of
Governor Broughton, this communi
v farted Mondav morning of f on
the schedule of "daylight saving
time," with few exceptions, namely
the post office. Southern Railway
and passenges busses.
Practically all places of business
and manufacturing plants have
termed un the one hour asked, with
apparently little inconvenience, and
a spirit of cooperation to stand oy
the two-month period.
Atf W went on daylight saving
time, we couldn't give the public
the service they wanted," was the
comment of Postmaster J. Harden
Postmaster Howell pointed out
that the bus schedule Was such
that the mails coming in would not
be distributed on the hours con
venient to the public and that the
lack of cooperation of the post
office was in reality a bettor ser
vice to the public.
The agents of the Southern Rail

printed, with extensive schedules
Worked out with other companies,
that it would not only be too ex
pensive to change time for such a
short period, but also more confus
ing to the public.
Employees of the bus company
gave similar reasons, stating that
the network of bus schedules in
nneration from coast to coast was
so complicated that it would take
practically a year to perfect a
xhanire. and that for such a short
period it would be harder on the
public aa well as the mis lines w
operate by daylight saving time.
