The World Calendar "is
probably the ultimate solution to ending the confusion
in our national and international system of time reckoning.
It represents the labor of many individuals, as well
as the best features of all 12-month calendar schemes."

“. . . An arrangement whereby one might know, without looking at a printed schedule, the day of the week on which a given date would invariably fall, would be a vast improvement.”

there we are, with a calendar that has come through many
adventures and is still far from perfect. As a matter
of fact, a really perfect calendar is impossible. It has
to be a compromise, for it attempts to reconcile natural
fixed periods, which are not reconcilable. The things
to be desired are the greatest accuracy combined with
the greatest feasible convenience. We cannot scrap or
change our days or our years without altering the motion
of the sun or earth—those are immovable obstacles.
We could, but do not desire to, change our week; the seven-day
week is too deeply imbedded in tradition, religion and
convenience. But we can change our month, which is an
irrational division of time conforming to neither moon
