A Visit

56

German ex-Emperor, Wilhelm II paid his respects to Dowager Queen Emma, mother of Queen Wilhemina.

There was no crowd and consequently no cheering as a dark-suited man of medium height, his left arm paralyzed and an audacious moustache surmounting a well-trimmed beard stepped out of an automobile to pay his respects to Dowager Queen Emma, mother of Queen Wilhemina, at the Soestdyk Palace.

The visitor…

Rubber

Squabble

Dutch Treat

233

Queen Wilhelmina celebrated her 25th Wedding Anniversary and participated in a service of thanksgiving. That was all.

Scarcely a sovereign in Europe is so wisely and graciously parsimonious as Wilhelmina Helena Pauline Maria of Orange, Queen of the Netherlands. Her favorite Palace, at The Hague, has such an air of whitewashed simplicity that non-Dutch-speaking tourists have been known to leave the city under the impression the Court…

Crisis Ends

95

S.). Recently he returned to the Netherlands, ferreted (with intent to laud) into the question of how much “success” Queen Wilhelmina has…

Girl-guiding

367

Princess Juliana (17) took a train. As she sat, perforce upright, upon a brightly varnished but angular third class bench, few would have supposed her the sole heir to the throne.

A train made up exclusively of third class carriages, spotless, as are all Dutch trains, chugged out of the Hague last week brimming with apple-cheeked Girl Guides.

She, who chattered gleefully with the exuberance of 17, waved a dutiful goodbye to stout ladies in waiting, was Girl Guide Juliana Louise Emma…

Like Columbus

389

A Dutch submarine sailed and dived to San Francisco. The submarine continued to the Dutch East-Indies.

A blunt Dutch nose, slimy with seaweed, poked upward from the depths of San Francisco bay last week, was followed by the emerging bulk of Her Netherlandic Majesty’s submarine K-XIII.

Java Jolt

80

Throughout Western Java in the Netherlandic Indies concerted Communist revolts broke out last week and were supressed by the military.

Little Empire

815

Legend has made the Netherlands “a little country.” With Communist outbreaks in the Dutch East Indies, few U. S. citizens realized that almost half as many live under the Dutch as under the U.S. flag.

Hermine Calls

236

A short account how the the Queen-Mother (21 at the time) met her husband, 62-year-old King William III, justly known as the “Dutch Don Juan.”

Whatever is royal and at the same time smart and sumptuous, in the Netherlands, will usually be found to appertain to that great lady, the Queen Mother Emma. Her daughter, Queen Wilhelmina, is undoubtedly more popular, more Dutch, more well-beloved; but the Queen Mother is Royal, as though by Right…

Royal University Girl
