When Mr. and Mr*. Aksel Ped
ersen went to Denmark last sum
mer it was his first v«sit home in
20 years.
Denmark is the native country
of Mrs. Pedersen, the former In
ger Christensen, too, but it had
not been so long since she had
revisited her birthplace. <
Mr. and Mrs. Pedersan, who
have a poultry farm near Hurlay
on Highway 63, sailed for Den
mark with their three-year-old
son. in July and returned last
month aftar visiting his parants,
brothers and sisters and other rel
atives. Mrs. Pedersen’s family,
the A. T. Christensens, live in the
place adjoining the Padarsans.
Preparations and plans for the
trip occupied them for months
Mr. Pedersen sold his dairy herd
so his brother-in-law, Aksel
Christensen, wouldn’t have such
a hard time caring for the place.
But he left 1,000 chickens, two
big dugs and a few cows.
The Christensens moved into
the neat white bungalow of the
Pedersens and took over, going
daily down the road to keep an
eye on their own farm which they
fi=- : ==
share with the elder Christensens.
The Denmark of his boyhood,
was unchanged, Mr. Pedersen

mark." ha ramarkad. "On# farm

Two things particularly im
pressed the Pedersens. One is the
way Denmark takes care of its
old people and the other is the
reforestation program.
Modern, attractive apartment
houses built at intervals through
out the country accommodate old
persons who pay rent from their
old age pension cheeks issued
monthly after the age of 05.
A single parson or a couple can
rant one of these apartments.
They can choose one with a priv

the Pedersens pointed out.
Mr. Pedersen was particularly
impressed with the obligatory re
forestation program under which
anyone cutting trees must replant
within two years. The govern
ment protects existing timber by
requiring that inexperienced land
owners must be assisted by an
expert from the state in marking
trees for cutting. They are allowed
to mark their own trees only aft
er 10 years of working with such
an expert, he said.
There have not been many
changes in farming methods in
Denmark except for the presence
of tractors and farming machin
ery of almost every prominent
make found in America. There
are more milking machines now,
too, he pointed out, snd sugar
beets have become a leading crop.
"People grow more sugar beets
because there is a ready market
for them and they bring cold
cash.” he declared.
The climate seemed a little cool
to people who have lived the past
nine years in Mississippi.
"Why, 65 dgrees is considered
mid-summer weather!’’ they mai
After their comfortable house
on a Mississippi farm, it amused
the Pedersens to rediscover the
public baths that are so prevalent
in Denmark. Bathing facilities in
private homes are scarce and pub
lic balh houses in the cities are
big businesses.
"As you go into the bath, an
attendant takas a wad of excelsior
j and dips it into hot soap suds and

Mr. Christensen came to this
country in 1920 and soon was.set
