Reference: a New York Times letter published September 8, 1929**

"A 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.' "

FROM: WORLD CALENDAR REFORM (Chapter XIV:of CALENDAR MARCHES ON by Elisabeth Achelis, as it appears in the June 1954 Journal of Calendar Reform, Volume 24 - Pages 95-96.
