ed Lov shal vi
bygge vort Land
"with law shall we build our land,
not with lawlessness lay it waste."
Chis was the introduction to the
ancient code of laws in Norway, dating
from the beginning of the nsth century.
Chese laws had been in existence in
Norway much earlier, being transmitted
from mouth to ear by the "lovsigemann"
or "lawman" at the annual assemblies
in the several districts of the country.
Chese assemblies were at the same
time legislative bodies and courts of
from time immemorial the Norwe-
gians were free men, with equal rights
before the law.

merica-still young in body as well as
in spirit-has rightly been called the
hope of the world. This continent was
discovered in the year 1000 by Leiv Eiriksson
who was born in Iceland of Norwegian parents.
The brave stand the Norwegians have taken
against the German invaders of their country,
the part which Norwegian seamen have played
in winning the battle of the Atlantic, and the
active participation in the war by Norwegian armed forces,
give ample reason for saluting Norway at this time.
Decorah and W inneshiek County are predominantly Nor-
wegian. The pioneers who settled here from 1850 on, did not
bring with them much of worldly goods. But they were rugged
men and women, with Christian and physical courage. The
Norwegian immigrants hailed from a land where all were equal
before the law. They were comparatively well educated. With
their democratic background they have worked in harmony
with people of all other nationalities to make this community
prosperous and a good place to live.
Liberty within the law, a liberal education, social conscience,
sportsmanship, science, literature and art, daring adventure, are
characteristic traits of the Norwegian race. Evidence of the
urge for higher learning is found in Luther C ollege, which was
built by the pioneers more than eighty years ago.
