BRISBANE NOTES -' '; '(Prom Our Own Con-espondent.) ? ' THE . POINT OF VIEW. Everybody is by no means enthusias -ti-i about their first week's experience of daylight saving. It is all a matter of tile' point of view. For instance those people who live in the suburbs and have td catch a train daily at 6.30 a.m. which means rising at- about 5.15 new time and 4.15 'by the sun,' are by no oneans; impressed with the saving of an ? hiiur's ':dav]{eih.t at thp. other end nf the day.' If one 'is to believe their testi vmpny— rand their language is expres sive and direct enough — they would ? much prefer the old .order of things and the^ extra ihour in bed in the morning. The publicans also may be numbered amongest the anti-daylight savers, as -ttie.y; maintain they are losing an hour of thebest and briskest trade of the 24. .There is of course nothing doing in the ?^Viiibs in the early morning — except for toe' 'human 'flotsam' and jetsam who are *? ravenous' fcr the-hair of the dog that bi...

Politicians of the three : parties i are taking it for granted that there is likely to be an early' appeal to the people and are selecting candidates, trying to get organisations' intno working order and sc. on.
