  • Description

    EXCITED NEGRO CHILDREN FROM A CHICAGO SLUM MET A REAL KING YESTERDAY (THURSDAY) AND GAZED WIDE-EYED AT THE HALL OF GILDED MIRRORS IN HIS PALACE.

    THE 53 CHILDREN IN THE GROUP WERE INVITED TO SWEDEN BY A SWEDISH NATIONAL NEWSPAPER AND BY THE SWEDISH RADIO FOR A TWO WEEK HOLIDAY. DURING THEIR STAY IN SWEDEN THEY HAVE BEEN LIVING IN SWEDISH HOMES, SOME OF THEM IN HOMES BELONGING TO FILM STARS.

    YESTERDAY WAS THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE TOUR WHEN THE CHILDREN VISITED STOCKHOLM CASTLE AND WERE GREETED BY KING GUSTAV ADOLF. THE CHILDREN PRESENTED THE KING WITH A HAND-WOVEN CARPET MADE BY NAVAHO INDIANS AND DECORATED WITH RELIGIOUS SYMBOLS. AFTERWARDS THE KING TOOK THEM ON A GUIDED TOUR OF HIS CASTLE AND PLAYED THEM SOME OF HIS RECORDS.

    THE NEGRO CHILDREN THOUGHT THAT KING GUSTAV ADOLF WAS "TERRIFIC", "FANTASTIC", "REAL POSH" AND AS ONE 15-YEAR-OLD COMMENTED "JUST LIKE A REAL PERSON".
