A proposed calendar in which the present 12 months are retained but the days are divided into four equal quarters; January, April, July, and October begin on Sunday and have 31 days, the other months have 30 days, so that there are 364 days with the 365th day following December 30 in no month; leap-year days would follow June 30.
