Chris Hansen has a unique souvenir, which he ran across recently while looking through some papers: a personal note of greeting from King Christian of Denmark. He obtained the note as the result of a sizeable bet with the late E.P. Spaeth in 1934. The bet was that Hansen could secure a personally signed letter from King Christian, with Mr. Spaeth taking the negative side. Mr. Hansen was an orderly for the king in 1898 when the king made an ocean trip.

A Hungarian refugee family is expected to arrive in Campbell County by the first of February through the sponsorship of the Gillette council of the Knights of Columbus, it was announced by Dan Brennan, grand knight. Brennan said that at the present time they do not know what size family will arrive here since the group of refugees will come from the East Coast to Denver and then to Wyoming. One of the first needs appears to be contacting someone who may speak Hungarian or a Slavic language and will be able to act as an interpreter. Such a person should be on hand at the time of arrival in order to show these people the use of utilities and how to identify canned foods. Common labor employment will be necessary for the man until he is able to begin to understand the English language. It is thought that none of the members of the family will know the language of this country.

Sundance has been placed under a “brown-out” since Dec. 6 in an effort to nurse along a faulty light plant which failed completely for two nights, Dec. 3 and 4, according to the Sundance Times. Lack of replacement repairs for one of the engines that powered a generator at the plant has continued to restrain Sundance citizens from using more than two lights at a time in their homes and extinguishing all business house lights except service stations and restaurants, which were cut to a bare minimum. Action by the city councilmen had both Sen. Joseph C. O’Mahoney and Rep. Frank A. Barrett searching the nation for some kind of portable power unit to tide the city over the emergency. After a similar plea for help, the war assets administration at Denver was also working to find a generator in its surplus equipment.
