OSLO Nov 21

The news of the Queen's death caused sorrow throughout the country. Newspapers were permitted to break the ban on Sunday       publication to announce the news. Crowds

gathered in front of the Royal Palace, gazing  

silently at the Royal Banner, wich was flying on half-mast    

King Haakon sent the following message to     the Bishop of Oslo: "The Queen has passed   away. It is well to know that she is free   from any more pain."  

The Crown Prince, Prince Olav, Queen Maud's only child, has left for London.

The Prime Minister of Norway (Mr. Nygaardsvold), in a national broadcast, said:

"The memory of our good Queen will remain always in the hearts of the Norwegian  


The "Aftenposten" says that the Queen   went to Norway unfamiliar either with the people or customs, and had many difficulties       to encounter, chiefly in connection with the         education of her two-year old son, now Prince    

Olav. She had to make him think and feel   as a Norwegian, to fig him to succeed to the   Throne. Her task was made more difficult,

as she was British and her husband Danish.

The newspaper adds that the entire nation   acknowledges that the task was excellently   Handled. The Queen had a straong personality,  

with an outspoken shine of justice. One of her oldestnladies-in-waiting said that the       Queen was never "annhhibish or afraid, and     never forgot a friend in need."
