    British Labour M.P. Philip Noel-Baker, accompanied by his sister, son and grandson, arrived at Copenhagen?

  • Description

    British Labour M.P. Philip Noel-Baker, accompanied by his sister, son and grandson, arrived at Copenhagen airport, Dec. 8, on his way to Oslo where he will receive the 1959 Nobel Peace Prize, Dec. 10.

    A former chairman of the Labour Party, leading Socialist expert on international affairs and fervent champion of disarmament, Philip Noel-Baker first heard of the decision, taken by the Norwegian Parliament's Nobel Committee, on Nov. 5 - four days after his 70th birthday.

    Although the Committee, according to tradition did not give reasons for the award, Noel-Baker believes the honour has been conferred on him in recognition of his book "The Arms Race: A Programme for World Disarmament", published last year. This is the sixth book he has written on disarmament since 1925 and he considers it his best.
