Action taken by the Assembly of the League of Nations at its recent session holds much promise that an international conference to simplify the calendar will be held next year, said George Eastman, Chairman of the National Committee on Calendar Simplification, in a statement today commenting upon advices he has just received from Geneva.

Mr. Eastman said that a resolution had been adopted by the Assembly which automatically placed on the agenda of the next meeting of the League Conference on Communications and Transit, probably in December, the findings of his committee, the calendar reform resolutions of the International Chamber of Commerce, the recommendations of the French and Belgian calendar committees, and resolutions adopted by various other national and international bodies, all directed to the League.
