  • Description

    The King and the Queen
    of Sweden were among the many guests at a banquet in the Golden Hall of
    Stockholm's City Hall, filmed by Visnews Dec 10.

    The banquet was given in honour of this year's Nobel Prize winners and attended
    also their families, by Swedish scientists, laureates of previous years and
    members of the Royal House. After the dinner, university students marched in
    with banners and paid tribute to the men who have set a splendid example in the
    field of science.

    Earlier in the day the following Nobel awards were presented by King Gustav in
    the grand auditorium of the Concert Hall, Stockholm: The physics prize jointly
    to Soviet scientists Dr. Pavel Cherenkov, Prof. Ilya Frank and Prof. Igor Tamm;
    the chemistry award to Dr. Frederick Sanger of Cambridge University; and the
    medicine prizes, again jointly, the three Americans - Doctors George Beadle and
    Edward Tatum, and Prof. Joshua Lederberg.

    While the Nobel prize in literature had been refused by Russian writer Boris
    Pasternak, the Peace Prize was handed over simultaneously in Oslo to the Belgian
    Dominican priest, Father Georges Pire.
