UNDERGROUND

in political terms, is a secretly conducted movement to overthrow the government or the military occupation forces of a country. Underground tactics have been used since early history, but reached a high point of activity during World War II (1939-1945). Since then, Communist organizations have worked underground in attempts to overthrow many governments.

KING HAAKON

was chosen king by the Norwegian people and parliament in 1905 after the separation of Norway from Sweden. He ruled until his death. He was a son of King Frederik VIII of Denmark and was born in Charlottenlund, near Copenhagen. He took the name Haakon, which was the name of six Norwegian kings during the Middle Ages.

Denmark National Anthem


A lovely land is ours
A lovely land is ours
With beeches green about her
Encircled by the sea
Her hills and vales are manifold
Her name, of old, is Denmark
And she is Freya's home
In days of long-ago
This land was home to heroes
From war they rested here
Then forth they went, to smite the foe
Now to their graves they've gone
Among the barrow-stones
This land is yet so fair
Her waters yet so blue
And green are still her leaves
And noble ladies, maidens fair,
And men and able lads
Still dwell on Danish soil
Hail Sovereign, hail Home!
Hail every Dane who labours
To do his very best
Our ancient Denmark shall abide,
While yet the waves reflect
The beeches in their blue
