Eastern Peace Time

Last night I heard part of a rebroadcast of a 1945 Arch Oboler radio drama.
In the introduction, Oboler spoke of "Eastern Peace Time." An AltaVista
search turned up
by way of confirmation.

The "northamerica" time zone file already has information about Eastern War
Time during World War II...
	Rule	US	1942	only	-	Feb	9	2:00	1:00
W # War
	Rule	US	1945	only	-	Sep	30	2:00	0
...and presumably what's needed is a line between these two such as...
	Rule	US	1945	only	-	Sep	2	h:mmu	1:00
P # Peace
...where h:mm is the time that the document ending the war was signed.

And so, two questions:
1.	What are the correct values for h and mm above?
2.	Was that indeed the instant when the switch from War Time to Peace
Time occurred?

Thanks in advance for any light that folks can shed!
