Reports of Affiliates and Committees of The World Calendar Association, International, presented at the Ninth Annual Meeting 16 January 1956, reflect the world-wide interest in and need for calendar reform. Published highlights (JCR Vol. 25, Dec. 1955 - Jan. 1956) for BRAZIL:

The Affiliate has been without a chairman since the death of Rear Admiral Radler de Aquino in 1953. However, Mr. H. Saville Dodd of San Paulo, who has been an advocate of The World Calendar for some years, has recently expressed an interest in forming a new committee and becoming its chairman.

SUSTAINED progress toward the international enactment of calendar reform was reported at the Seventh Annual Meeting 15 January 1954 of The World Calendar Association, International, held in the International Building, New York City. Published highlights (JCR Vol. 24, April 1954) for BRAZIL:

The cause of calendar reform has lost on of its most distinguished advocates in the death of the Brazilian Chairman, Admiral Radler de Aquino. A reorganization of the committee is expected early in 1954. In the meantime, there has been no change in the government's position, which is entirely sympathetic with calendar revision on an international plane. In fact, Brazil was the first country in the New World to advocate calendar reform, having been drawn into the subject by the French philosopher Auguste Comte more than a century ago. At the League of Nations International conference in 1931 Brazil unequivocally approved The World Calendar; a stand which has been consistently maintained ever since. During the past twenty years, world leadership in the movement has been carried largely on the shoulders of the Latin-American countries, which will all rejoice to find at the forthcoming meetings of the U.N. that their enthusiasm has now been reinforced by the strong attitude of the government of India.
