Stump Bruce on March 11, 2019

On Monday K103 listener Anne Kerzel failed to stump Bruce with this question:

Question: At one time, Daylight Saving Time was year-round and had a different name. What was it called?

Answer: "War Time"; it began in the U.S. in 1918 as an attempt to save energy during WWI, folloing Germany's shift in 1916. The idea was to maximize sunlight hours during the longer days of the year by taking an hour of morning Sun, when many were sleeping, and adding it to the end of the day.
