HOME EDITION VOL LXIII Asfoclated Pros and United PKSS Full Seven Copy MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY MARCH 28 1957 Thif Paper Consists ot Two The World Around Us A Musical Welcome in Denmark Number 112 EDITORS is ont of a series of daily reports by our editor on a trip by air around the world How people live and how they feel toward America are more em phasized by Mr Hall than scenic features By W EARL HALL COPENHAGEN DENMARK It would have been quite easy for me and my colleague to conclude that we were being given the royal welcome to Den mark Even before we got set tled in our room at the famous DAngleterre hotel we heard mu sic in the distance Stepping out on our balcony we beheld a bril liantly uniformed company of sol diers shakos and all marching down the street beneath us to the cadence of a brass band But it wasnt for us darn it all Our arrival was at high noon and the marching men were on their way from the royal pal ace where they had completed a formal changing of the guard This happens every day when King Frederick and his equally beloved queen Ingrid are in Cop penhagen It looks now as if Id be mov ing on to the last stop on my world girdling jaunt Amster dam without getting a glimpse of the royal couple whom I met and lunched with some 18 years ago As crown prince and prin cess they visited Iowa State College on a good will trip to America As a Regent I was one of their hosts Within that same fortnight I also met Norways Crown Prince Olaf and Princess Martha now deceased at De corah Ancient Castle In an ancient castle squarely across a parkway from our hotel this afternoon I saw Denmarks dazzling collection of crown jew els and a number of other relics reminiscent of another day and another status for royally The ciown used to be a symbol of unlimited authority in the mon arch But all that ended in 1840 Since that time there has been no such thing as a crowning of the king The Prime Minister at an appointed time and in the presence of his countrymen gives to the new king whatever power he enjoys by merely intoning these words The King is live the King When I asked our guide who the one Dane in history who occupies the place of affection in the hearts of the people George Washington holds in America he hestitated with his answer Fi nally he concluded that it might be either Hans Christian Ander sen the writer of fairy tales or Bertel Thorvaldsen one of the worlds top sculptors of the past 500 years Huge Museum Andersen is memorialized in a thoroughfare bearing his name and Thorvaldsetis works in either marble or orig inal plastercast form are pre served in a huge museum which gave us one of the most pleasant half hours weve had on this en tire journey In a hurried drive through the city we visited but much too briefly such places as Royal Theater Christiansborg Palace an ultramodern athletic stadium the stock exchange the impres s i v e University of Denmark dating back to an amaz ing brick church named after N F S Grundtvig father of uni versal education for Danes the redfaced twostory home of Hans Christian Andersen Cathedral on the site of Copen hagens first church 800 years ago and the Little a famed bit of harbor statuary along the citys best known prom enade Under Repair Lying at anchor across from the Mermaid was the Swedish liner in the final stages of repair following her tragic collision last year with Italys luxury liner the Andrea Doria With its new coat of white glistening in the afternoon sun the Stockholm looked ex tremely sleek Which ship do you think was to blame we asked our Danish guide He shrugged his shoulders and replied I dont know but I hope it was the Italian not the And in that answer is a reflcc lion of the friendship and loyalty finds among the people

DES MOINES W After cau tiously probing the legal implica tions the Iowa Senate Thursday passed a bill which would give the states three tax supported higher educational institutions the right to finance new classroom buildings through bond issues The bill recommended by the Iowa Taxation Study Committee now goes to the House The Sen ate voted 427 to approve it Under the bill the State Board of Regents could issue revenue bonds for new classroom build ings at the State University of Iowa Iowa State College and Iowa State Teachers College The bonds which would bear interest of up to five per cent would be paid off by building lees assessed against students attend ing the institutions However slif dents at one institution would not be called upon lo help pay for structures at the other schools Pressing Need Sen Wilbur Molison RGrin nell chairman of the Senate Com mittee on Schools and Education al Institutions said there is a pressing need for such a meth thod of financing new classroom buildings because of anticipated heavy increases in enrollments Molison said about stu dents are enrolled in the three in stitutions at the present time and that it is anticipated that this will rise to about by 1970 What appeared to concern the senators most was that the bill provided no limit on the amount of such bond issues that could be undertaken at any one time nor any restriction on the amount of the building fee that could be as sessed against the students To gain answers to some of these questions the Senate went into a committee of the whole session and questioned Harry Hagemann Waverly president of the State Board of Regents Practical Limit Hagemann while conceding that there is no limitation in the bill on the amount of building fees said that actually there is a practical Hagemann said the board could not as a practical matter set the building fee so high as lo drive students ay from the institutions be cause this would defeat the pur pose of the building fee which is to pay off the bonds The House meanwhile was bogged down in arguments over procedure on a bill to require all school districts to be in high school districts by 1962 Further consideration on the matter was deferred The bill would declare that those districts not in high school districts by the deadline would be attached to some other dis trict by the county hoard of edu cation with the
