calendar. There will be 30 days
1b each "month and each day of the
week will always fall upon the
game days in each month.
A bit of calculation reveals that
this fixed calendar calls for only
SCO days in the year. This does
not agree with the 1 sun on its
course, for Old Sol iusirts upon

ing Leap Year, the delight of spin
sters. A thiug like that, however, does
not stump the sovfet government;
accustomed as it is to cutting the
Gordian knots of capitalistic civll
xaUons. It simply decreed that
these extra five days each year
and the added 24 hours of leap
years should be celebrated as holidays.
These days are off in a cate
. gory by themselves. They belong
. to no one month and are scattered
through the calendar.
The day devoted to the memory
of Lenin, who la venerated as
father of the proletarian revolu
tion, is first on the list. It is fixed
to come at the end of January, or
rather right after that month. In
between January 30 and February
