The subject of calendar reform became practical politics about
twenty years ago, certainly when the League of Nations' Committee
sat in the years 1923-1926. From that time till 1937 two forms of
calendar were in the field, one with thirteen months and the other with
twelve. It is necessary that grave
and weighty reasons should be put forward for demanding a change,
in particular for requesting the use of ONE eight-day week at the end
of each year and another at the end of June in each leap year. This
innovation creates a universal religious issue. At the same time, it is desirable that the festivals of Easter
and Whitsuntide should be fixed. For both these purposes a Church
Council will, sooner or later, have to be summoned.
