THE SCANDINAVIAN AMERICAN
Norway Set For Winter Olympics
Norway Readies Gala Program
For Athletes From 30 Nations
Already under way for more than three years, preparations for the
VI Olympic Winter Games, to be held In Oslo, Norway, Feb. 14-25,.
1952, are now in high gear. Much of the construction work on new
tracks and fields has been completed, and the rent will be ready by
next fall. Meanwhile, Oslo-Hes are being canvassed in an all-out ei
fort to provide ample accommodations for foreign visitors.
For the first time in the history
of the Winter Olympics, all but a
few of the games will take place
within the city limits of a national
Capital. The hubs of activities—
Bislett and Jordal Fields and the
Holmenkollcn Hill, are located on
ly a few minutes by trolley or elec
tric railway from the center of
Oslo. Thus, visitors may enjoy
the cultural and social life of the
Norwegian capital, and yet have
a chance to watch the exciting
sports contests.
In the course of eleven days.
some 1,200 men and women from
about 30 nations are scheduled to
compete for highest honors in ev
ery type of winter sport, includ
mg bobsled, ice hockey, figure and
speed skating, and a variety of
skiing exercises.
