The business prospered and the dairy man brought his young Swiss wife to .Finland with him. His dairy became one of the largest of Finland's prosperous businesses. His son, born in Finland, joined the army »nrj is now its commander. The Swiss, who are very proud of their own newly-elected comniander- in-chief, General Henri Guiyan, and their crack little citizen-army, [joint to Oefch's career as another evidence of Swiss military prowess.
