Abstract: 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.
