Starts Victory Time Campaign
Starting a nation-wide movement to set all display clocks in retail stores to the "V for Victory" time, 12:55, instead of placing the hands at 8:18, a time seen frequently on the faces of clocks, attractive Irene Ryan contrasts the new with the old at the Warren Telechron plant, Ashland, Massachusetts, where from now on all clocks shipped will be set to V time.
