Wolf Extolled; Five-day Week Movement Lauded at Shomrei Shabbos Congress

Grief at the passing of Lucien Wolf, who fought against the compulsory Sunday Rest Laws and proposed Calendar Reform and was a pioneer fighter for Jewish rights, was voiced by M. Lewenstein of Zurich in an address on calendar reform made today before the congress of the Shomrei Shabbos League for Upholding the Sanctity of the Sabbath.

The Congress voted to appeal to the League of Nations against the introduction of blank days in the proposed changes in the calendar.
