May 23, 1922: The First Debate on Radio



May 23, 1922: On this day two debaters argued about Daylight Saving Time with audience act as jury. This debate was the first radio broadcast debate airing from WJH radio station in Washington DC.

President Warren G. Harding ordered to change the work shift of Federal employees. As Harding's order, working time start at 8 a.m. He gave exception for private employers, they could do as they pleased.

Daylight saving time then became a hot issue. There were pro and contra about Daylight saving time at that time, not only in U.S. but also in several countries in the world.
