SWITZERLAND
1953

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 SWITZERLAND:

Geneva was the scene of many international conferences during 1953. At several of these, The World Calendar Association was represented and the cause of calendar revision was presented. Perhaps the most important, from this viewpoint, was the meeting of the Council of ISO (International Organization for Standardization), which is considering the motion of its French member to place "standardization of the calendar" on its regular program of activities. A questionnaire on this motion has been sent to all its members, but insufficient replies have thus far reached the secretariat to enable a firm conclusion. The council meeting was addressed by James Avery Joyce, international liaison officer of The World Calendar Association, and his appeal for a standardized calendar was supported by strong statements from the French delegates and from the representative of Soviet Russia. Mr.Joyce also attended meetings of the U.N. Conference of Non-Governmental Organizations and of ECOSOC, the Economic and Social Council of the U.N., with its numerous committees and subcommittees . . . . An important Swiss business magazine, Der Organisator, published an informative article on calendar reform.
