WINNIPEG, 14. NÓV. 1945 H EIM SKRINGLA 7.SIÐA TOAST TO MRS. S. E. BJORNSON October21,1945. By Andrea Johnson Mr. Chairman, Honoured Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen: It is with a f eeling of hesitan-^ CY that I attempt to bring this toast to you, Mrs. Björnson, to- day when you are about to leave us after so many years of resi- dence in our community, that bring so many happy memories °f the past. My mind turns back to our first meeting, a meeting that I had very anxiousíy waited for as in the old "Students Society" in Winnipeg, Svein's beautiful "María" was almost a myth. We had all heard a great deal about his "dream girl", but few of us had the privilege of meeting her or even seeing her. This meeting did not take place till after we Were both married and sinos then we have worked in close harmony, although the last few years our paths have diverged, as each of us has had a wider horizon in our activities, you in your church and I in the co-op- erative field. Our first meeting took place at Gimli, when my husband and [ were invited to go with the Björnsons on a call he had to make in an outlying district. Never have I seen such roads before or since. An epidemic of diptheria had broken out. There were no immunization clinics in those days. I realized then that being a doctors wife was not in every way easy. A doctor has to be at every ones call and the wif e has to learn to adapt herself to that. Two years later they came to Arborg and built their beautiful home, a home that was always a haven of rest to the doctor, a home where the children were born and brought up, in a home that was grief stricken at the loss of little "Brosie". A home where your father, the doctors father and mother spent their Iast days. A home that was al- ways an open house to so many guests, where you entertained so beautifully. A home that has now been discarded because it has served its purpose. For now Sissa and Buddy have chosen their vocations. She a happy young bride, only with us in spirit to-day, and he a young doctor, sitting by his mother's side. When the parents have their children established in life they can fold their hands and breathe a prayer of thanksgiv- ing of work well done. That is just what Dr. and Mrs. Björnson are doing. They feel that they can now travel hand in hand INNKÓÍLUNARMENN HEIMSKRINGLU Reykjavík A fSLANDI __Björn Guðmundsson, Reynimel 52 ICANADA Antler, Sask_____________K. J. Abrahamson, Sinclair, Man.

Winnipeg Manitoba through their sunset ctf life, pitching their tent when they have found the vision of their dreams. To-day we, the women of the Manitoba Federation of Agricul- ture and Co-operatives, wish to thank you for your 24 years of work with us. We feel that you were always willing to assist us in every way and wish that the coming ysars may bring you nothing but happiness. You have always loved beauty, and you have been for- tunate to be able to cultivate that beauty in your hobbies. Most of us have had dreams, but so often theydo not mater- ialize, but yours has. Your dream was a "Summer Home" on Lake Winnipeg. That has been erected and been in opera- tion for the last few years. Many are the hours of work and worry that you spent on that, but they are now behind you but the Summer Home will flourish. It is said that "All that you put into the lives of others comes back into your own". When one thinks of all the happy bearts of the children that were given the privilege of a summer holiday because you had a "dream", your days ahead can only be happy ones. Your work in the "Þjóðrækn- isfélag" will be dealt with by others here, but I would like to mention the value of the Satur- day School. The little girls that are here today to sing for us are a shining example of its value. In your field as director of the Women's work in the church has created a host of friends throughout the province, that are as sorry to see you leave as we are and all hope to see you soon and often amongst us. I would like to thank Dr. Björnson for all he has done for us. His quiet understanding and sympathy has always been a source of strength in our hours of need. May he carry on his good work wherever he may be. So in closing, dear Mrs. Björn- son, I wish to thank you for all of us for the time you have spent with us and may the happiest days of your past be the saddest days of your future. Were you to express your feeling at this parting, I feel that you would borrow Edgar Guests words and say: "I'd like to think that here and there, When I am gone, there shall re- main A happier spot that might have not Existed had I toiled for gain; That some ones cheery voice and smile Shall prove that I have been worthwhile. That I had paid with something fine My debt to God for life divine. FRÉTTIR FRÁ ISLANDI Sigurður Nordal próf. og Páll Isólfsson tónskáld komnir heim Þeir Sigurður Nordal prófess- or og Páll ísólfsson tónskáld eru | komnir heim eftir tveggja mán- aða dvöl erlendis. Eins og kunnugt >sv fóru þeir héðan til þess að sitja hátíð há-: skólans í Osló og flutti Nordal^ kveðju frá Islandi við það tæki-[ færi. Frá Osló fór Nordal til Gauta- borgar, en háskólinn þar gerði1 hann heiðursdoktor árið 1941. Þá sat Nordal fund Árnanefnd- ar í Kaupmannahöfn og ræddi við ýmsa menn um endurheimt íslenzkra handrita. Páll ísólfsson hélt hljómleika í Osló og víðar og í norska út- varpið, hefir áður verið frá skýrt í fréttum að þar hafi hann farið sigurför. — Tónlistarhátíð var haldin í Osló í október, stóð hún í viku, og voru eingöngu flutt verk er samin hafa verið á stríðs- árunum. Þá fór Páll ennfremur til Stokkhólms og kynti sér m. a. útvarpsstarfsemi, einkum tón- listarflutning og barnatíma. —Þjóðv. * * * Sovétríkin björguðu Svíþjóð frá innrás Þjóðverja vorið 1940 Undén, utanríkisráðherra Sví- þjóðar, flutti nýlega ræðu í Öre- bro. Ræddi hann um orsakir þess, að Svíþjóð slapp við þýzka innrás vorið 1940, er Noregur og Danmörk voru hernumin. Taldi hann afstöðu Sovétríkjanna hafa ráðið úrslitum um það, að Þjóð- verjar hættu við innrás í Sví- þjóð. Hann sagði að það væri vitað, að rétt eftir 9. apríl hafi Molo- toff sagt þýzka sendiherranum í Moskva, að Sovétríkin væntu þess, að hlutleysi Svíþjóðar yrði ekki skert. öænska ríkisstjórnin hefði á sínum tíma þakkað Sovét- stjórninni fyrir þessa hjálp, á hættustund. Undén sagði, að það væri á- nægjulegt, að minnast þess, að Svíþjóð hefði einnig gert Sovét- ríkjunum greiða, er sænska stjórnin neitaði að leyfa frönsk- um og enskum hersveitum, er senda átti til Finnlands, för um sænskt land. Ráðherrann vék einnig að kröfum sænskra verkamanna um að nazistahreinsun færi fram meðal >embættismanna. Hann sagði, að augljóst væri, að hefði komið til þýzkrar árásar á Sví- þjóð, hefðu Þjóðverjar átt vísan stuðning sænskra manna, er reiðubúnir voru, að gegna sama hlutverki og Quisling í Noregi. Þá væri nauðsynlegt að gæta þess, að erlendir nazistar fengju ekki hæli í Svíþjóð. —Þjóðv. 23. okt.
