King Christian of Denmark, receiving a delegation of Copenhagen Jews on Sept, 27, on the occasion of his birthday, told them that if the Germans forced the Jews in the country to wear a yellow Mogen David badge, he would wear a yellow star upon his uniform in public and would order the entire royal household to follow suit, it was reported today by Danish circles here.

The delegation presented the monarch with a gold Mogen David on behalf of the Copenhagen Jewish community.
