English translation: (Caption) "Prof. Linus Pauling stole the show at the Nobel banquet
with his cheerful laugh." (Poem) "Theft / Dignified we sit / at the festive tables.
/ Glumly we half listen / to the words- / the words of boring speeches. / Suddenly
we become alert: / somebody is laughing, / laughing in this formal hall. / Long we
hesitate / long we question: / shall we refuse / shall we dare / to open our tightly
closed shell? / At first we felt / he had done wrong to laugh. / Then slowly we realize
/ that gladly we would have shared / his crime, he who stole the show / at the banquet."
