THANKS OF DENMARK
British Soldiers As Summer Guests In Jutland FIVE-DAY LEAVE PLAN Rec. noon. LONDON, July 20. Every household in Aarhus, a seaport on the east coast of Jutland, with a spare bed is preparing to receive a British soldier as a holiday guest, after , the Danish authorities recently expressed a desire to give a five-day holiday to 100,000 members of the Twenty-first Army as a token of thanks for their part in the liberation of Denmark. It was decided that Aarhus district was the most suitable holiday location.
It is still uncertain the date the scheme will start, but as it will take three months to complete it is hoped to begin shortly. The soldiers will take their own bedding, thus solving a problem at present acute throughout Denmark. The hosts will be entitled to draw the same payment for each guest as is paid for the billeting of Danish soldiers, but many householders declared that they would not take money for entertaining the ■ British.
A big programme of amusements, including boating, bathing and dancing is being prepared. The bigger restaurants will have a special dispensation from the curfew regulations.
