Standard Time Returns Sunday

October 22, 1998

WASHINGTON (AP) _ It’s time for America to get back to the old standard. Standard time, that is.

Remember the motto: Spring forward, fall back. Well, it’s time to fall back.

Set the clocks back an hour Saturday night. The official moment is 2 a.m. Sunday, local time. The alternative, of course, is to arrive at church, work or whatever an hour early.

Exempt from the change are residents of Arizona, Hawaii, the part of Indiana in the Eastern time zone, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and American Samoa. Those areas choose not to observe daylight time, so they’re already on standard reckoning.

Daylight-saving time will return next April 4.
