Comment: Horst also suggested the Inter-Parliamentary Union and the Permanent International Peace Bureau, the former being his first and primary choice.
If the prize was to be awarded individuals, he suggested a divided prize between Cremer and Arnoldson as his first choice. In case this was not agreed upon by the Nobel Committee he suggested a divided prize between Cremer and Bajer.
