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 GERMANY:

Towards advancing the international movement for calendar reform, the members of this working Committee had various discussions with the appropriate ministries and gave talks on the subject before interested members and representatives of industry.

In view of the fact that Germany has not as yet been officially admitted to membership in the United Nations, the Committee reached the conclusion that "it is to be hoped that the representatives of the German Government will signify their agreement to a majority resolution by other governments, subject to the provision that if an international reform should be decided upon all nations would take part; further that all nations would give effect simultaneously to the international calendar which is adopted, that all nations would have to ratify an international agreement of this nature."

If it should be established that other nations were overwhelmingly in favor of the introduction of a new calendar, the committee is of the opinion that the German Government should reveal its readiness to support calendar reform.

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 GERMANY:

Formation of a German committee on calendar reform has been underway since November. Important leaders in industry, trade, communications, science and education have been invited to join the proposed committee. The movement has the approval of Abraham Frowein, who formerly was an eminent international leader in the cause, but who has now retire from business and organizational activity, having celebrated his 75th birthday on 19 September 1953. . . . There was a strong movement for calendar reform in Germany twenty years ago, which spread out and received part of its impetus from Dr. Rudolph Blochmann of Kiel, who unfortunately died of heart failure as a consequence of air raids in 1944; at that time the German calendar committee had an active membership of about 1,000.
