LA Times believed it was Jan 1

Warren sets Jan 1 to end daylight time
Decision announced after conference with power chief
Sacramento Dec 8 (AP)
California will return to standard time Jan. 1, Gov. Warren
decreed today.

1949 Jan 1, pg 1
The correct time is now an hour slow
There are 25 hours in today, Jan 1. At 2 a.m. PDT, daylight saving time
went out the window, the correct time became 1 a.m. PST

and a Jan 2 article down from the SF Chronicle blamed Warren for
the Cal Bears losing the Rose Bowl to Northwestern.
