a New York Times letter published September 8, 1929**
fortnight later, on Sunday September 8th, the New York Times published
a letter by the engineer Lewis E. Ashbaugh of
Denver, Colorado, in which he opposed the perpetual 13-month plan
and advocated the more easily divisible perpetual 12-month calendar
favored in Europe. He wrote: 'While we are planning an
improved calendar, let us also insist on the very best, with all
conditions considered, and let us adopt the revised twelve month
year of equal quarters and equal working-day months, easily adapted
from the calendar we now use.' "
