In regard to your editorial "Order at the Polls" (Feb. 9), it seems to me that HR 435, which you call the "best idea," is more complicated than necessary, especially in requiring a change in daylight-saving time every four years in the Pacific time zone. It is also unfair to the people who live in the mountain time zone.
The simplest way to insure that results of the election in the eastern time zones are not prematurely published is to allow the polls in all states to close at their regular times, but to forbid the publication or disclosure of results of any precinct before 8 p.m. Pacific time. R.C. ANDERSON
