Bulletin Horaire, vol.  4, no.  70 has a synopsis of time-related
activities at the 4th General Assembly of the IAU at Cambridge
Massachusetts in 1932.  Page 399 has the end of the Commission 31
(Time) meeting where Kiyofuso Sotome, director of Tokyo Astronomical
Observatory, proposed two items not on the printed agenda.

Item 2 was "Immediate abolition of the Summer Time."

The commission deemed that it could not take any action on this.


The same text is found in Transactions of the IAU vol. 4 page 253.
