News Items From Denmark:
Danish Prime Minister Hans
Hedtoft speaking in the Norwegian
"Nurden" society said. according to
the "BeI-lingske Tidende" of Copen
hagen:
“Not everybody outside the
North understands our favorable
soil of the growth of Nordic col
laboration. And so we see also as
cribed to us motives and plans
which we do not entertain at all.
We ought not refrain from such
collaboration for that reason nor
abstain from promoting its natural
growth.
“I know that our brother na
tions are inspired by the same
will. and so it appears natural that
the Scandinavian countries joint
ly seek the best possible assurance
in order that common goals may
be reached. There are shades of

Aksel Schiotz, the Danish tenor.
arrived in New York from Copen
hagen on October 4. As previously
announced. his first recital in Am
‘erica is at Town Hall on October
i20. Danish Ambassador Henrik
Kauffmann will attend the opening
concert.
l Aksel Schiotz' recital in Copen
hagen on Sept. 14, the first follow
,ing his long and serious illness,
,was an extraordinary event and
y'was hailed by Copenhagen review
ers as radiant and triumphant.
' “Aksel Schiotz," says Kai Flor
in the Berlingske Tidende, “sang as
lovely as ever. It was a happy.
moving joy to hear again this be
loved singer. He was again com
pletely at home in his song. in his
art, in the grand poetic world of
his voice."
‘Aksel Schitz." says H. V. in
the Social Demokraten, “has al
ways been the master of artistic
form. but it is as if his voice has
now gained deeper interior power
and appears as something sublime.
with an indinitely deeper perspec
tive."
Danish music lovers, all Den
mark. from all reports breathed a
happy sigh of relief that this great
voice had been completely restored.
and during his absence from the
concert platform had even risen
to greater spiritual power than
ever before.

Cooperative societies are of fun
damental importance to Denmark‘s
agricultural economy. They em
brace both production, marketing
and purchase. The great majority
of Danish farmers are members of
several cooperative societies.
They are built entirely on private
initiative and by private means.
There are no statutory provisions
dealing with cooperative societies.
Most of their leading men have at
tended Folk School and agricultur
al school. A Cooperative Folk
High School was established in
1932.
The cooperative system in Den
mark has been the means (1) of
producing high-quality uniform
products collected from many
places. (2) to secure the most. ad
vantageous prices to the farmer
for his products, and (3) the cheap
est prices for the products he has
to buy.
Cooperative dairies and coopera- {
itive bacon factories hold the cen-1
itral position in the Danish cooper-'
Iative system. They rose rapidly in .
ithe 80's and 90’s of last century,
lWithin a few years they handled:
ithe bulk of the butter and bacon:
iproduction. They have retained,
‘this predominant position to this
:dav ‘
| In 1946. about 1400 cooperative;
“dairies received 90 percent. of thew
lmilk supplied to dairies. The 60;
; cooperative bacon factories handled ,
:88 percent of the total number of!
pigs supplied for killing. Both Co-.
loperative dairies and bacon factor- {
jies are organized in national fed-l
ierations. Many cooperative dair-l
|ies are organized in butter export
lsocienes which handle 67 percent!
{or the butter exports. Both have[
organized societies for the put-i
Ichase of means of production. The:
Edairies also have established a
{dairy-machinery factory. '

Cooperative cattle export socie
ties handle 40 percent of the cattle
exports. Also a considerable por
tion of the sale on the home mar
ket.
Cooperative egg export societies
collect about 27 percent of the egg
production. Cooperative poultry
slaughter houses kill an essential
proportion of the poultry.
A seed supply society establish
ed by the agricultural societies
makes contracts with the farmers
for cultivation and supply. After
being cleaned the seed is sold to
the farmers through cooperative
stores or agricultural organiza
tions.
Almost 36 percent of the con
sumption of fertilizers, and about
49 percent of feeding stuffs, are
handled through special purchase
societies.
Practically every farmer is a
member of a Consumer‘s Cooper
ative Store of which there is one
in almost every village. A nation
al federation of consumers' coop
eratiyes supply these stores with
the bulk of their merchandise,
some of it from its own factories.
l The cooperative principle is con-l
{stantly being extended to new
ifields, including cooperative ma
ichine shops of which there are al
lready more than 50. cooperative
'laundries. and cold storage plantsl
lwhich as a rule operate in connec-l
ition with the cooperative dairies. ‘
