Troops Guard Parliament
he next day, Wednesday, was as
elievable as the events of April,
ad been. German troops noW

rersity, the city' hall and other
lic buildings. My first shock

sed the Storting (Parliament.)
score German soldiers filled the
n windows on the third floor of
building, all singing lustily, while
pumped joyfully at his accord-
Oslonians stood watching and
ning on the sidewalks below. I
:ed closely, but so far as I could
they were simply curious and
ewhat entertained.
3 on the previous night after the
Lpation, the city's cafes were filled
Imost normal fashion and a large
iber of young men were lolling
hem as if there were no such
.g as a regular Norwegian army,
ly to offer resistance to an in-
er, only 50 miles north of the
tal. Wherever we went we saw,
ips of young people clustered a-
id German soldiers on guard.'

who ld ,a ntchine gun mounted
for action. The crowd laughed and
joked with the soldiers. One man,
apparently half-intoxicated, shout-
ed "Deutschland uber Alles" several
times. The soldiers laughed. The-
chief of the machine-gun crew look-
ed down upon his admirers with an
inedscribable smile. He stood up
proudly like a member of a conquer-
ing Roman legion who realized that
he had the right to do so.
Such scenes, far from infrequent
had not ended when I left Oslo on
Friday. By that time, however, many
young Norwegians had disappeared
from the capital with packs on their
backs. A great many more went
after the Germans landed 20,000
troops on Oslo's quays on Thursday
afternoon. This sight at last awak-
ened many men from the daze which
they had been in. Many others,
however, still remained in the capi-
tal on Friday-seemingly a large part
of the men.
Quisling Government Formed
On Wednesday evening, we dis-
covered that the Quisling government
had been formed in Room 430 of
the Continental Hotel. I went there
about a matter which was said to
require the new Premier's personal
decision. Three Germans in civilian
clothes, and one Norwegian, were in
Room 430. After waiting, I saw Maj.
Quisling very briefly, but he turned
for advice to a sharp-faced German
who introduced himself as Reighs-
amtleiter Schoedt. The reichsamtle-
iter decided that matter while an-
other German assisted in giving fur-
ther directions. From there, we were
referred to the German legation,
where we were received courteously.
It appeared that the German mili-
tary censorship was not yet complete-
ly organized and nothing could be
arranged about the transmission of
dispatches until the next day.
Nevertheless, we made another call
at the telegraph building. The pub-
lic hall was destred when we en-
tered after passing German guards.
Inside two German privates were
standing. While we wrote our cable-
grams, they began an exercise in mass
psychology. They marched 15 or 20
steps, slowly and calculatedly pound-
ing the heels of their boots down on
the cement floor at every step. Each
step echoed loudly and menacingly,

a ga iT: Ie ceiling. After a few sec-
onus pause, the two soldiers pound-
ed theiir hee; again.
They continued this exercise as
long as we were in the hall. The
echo of their hobnailed heels was
amazingly eloquent.
Without A Shot
This is how Norway's capital was
captured without a bomb being
dropped, and without a shot being
fired within several miles of the city.
I believe this to be the first story
of any completeness to reach the out-
side world. I also believe it to be
the most important newspaper dis-
patch I ever have had occasion to
write. It is my conviction, for the
sake of history and also for the sake
of the ultimate restoration of sebur-
ity and freedom in all three Scan-
dinavian countries, that it is crying
to be told now. I am closing it with
the earnest hope that it will reach
America and the outside world quick-

ner, '41E, in charge of the event.
Debating the topic, "Resolved that
Michigan men of today lack the
hardiness and resourcefulness of
their predecessors," the competing
teams have advanced many forms
of argument. The finals debaters
are Allen Rumsey Dormitory and
Fletcher Hall.
Among the arguments brought up
on one side or the other of the ques-
tion was the presentation of a care-
fully compiled chart showing that
flunkees were more prevalent in the

more "carefree nature."
