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 NORWAY:

Major K. S. Klingenberg of the Norwegian Affiliate reported with regret that in the year 1955 nothing--as far as he knew--ad occurred in Norway concerning The World Calendar. His health hindered him in undertaking activities for the Association. However, when Mr. James Avery Joyce, Honorary Secretary of the British Section, arrived in Oslo on his trip to the Scandinavian countries on behalf of The World Calendar Association, International, Major Klingenberg was ale to arrange an appointment for him at the Foreign Ministry where they had an interesting and important interview.

SIGNIFICANT progress towards international agreement on calendar reform was reported at the Eighth Annual Meeting 14 January 1955 of The World Calendar Association, International, held in the International Building, New York City, . Published highlights (JCR Vol. 24, March 1955) for NORWAY:

Two metropolitan newspapers have carried articles on The World Calendar. A survey along the lines of a Gallup poll did not prove too encouraging. Having regard to Norway's long-time support of calendar reform, it was felt that the result of the poll should be regarded as an indication of the need for distribution of more educational matter to bring the general public to the same point of view expressed by Norwegian delegations in 1937 and 1947.

Members of the Norwegian Parliament and other leaders received this year a formal presentation of calendar reform in a brochure printed by the Norwegian affiliate. Its purpose was to bring them up to date on a project which they have always supported in International conferences on the subject. Several of the Norwegian newspapers commented on the matter and gave considerable important space to The World Calendar. . . . The professor of astronomy at the University of Oslo has shown a renewed interest in the subject of the calendar and has been in correspondence with the committee.
