5,000,000,000 Kilowatt Hours
But some members of Congress, like the elephant, never forget. The halls of legislation have been gently rocked recently by ridicule of W. P. B.'s statement that 5,000,000,000 kilowatt HOURS of electricity have been saved since CLOCKS were set and HOUR ahead in 1942. One congressman declared it silly "to say that juice is saved at one end of the day that is burned at the other end."
But with virtually every electrically operated industry in the country running 24 HOURS a DAY, it would seem this congressman has something when he says it is silly.
