M del in festive costume 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. 4 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. 3
