"ANZAC DAY."

COMMEMORATION AT

AKAROA.

The Minister of Internal Affairs has forwarded a copy of a New Zealand Gazette notice dated April 6th containing a notification by the Prime Minister respecting the commemoration of "Anzac Day."

The Gazette notice says the Government have decided to observe a half holiday, commencing at 1 p. m. on Tuesday, 25th April in commemoration of "Anzac Day" and the Prime Minister will be glad if Mayors of all cities and boroughs and Chairmen of County Councils and Road Boards as well as other local bodies will similarly observe the day in remembrance of the notable deed performed by the Australians and our brave New Zealand soldiers on that memorable and historical occasion. The notice also recommends] public worship and the displaying: of the New Zealand Ensign from sunrise to sunset on all public buildings. The Government is of opinion that the day should not be celebrated by holding sports and that the occasion might be used to assist the recruiting campaign.

The Mayor has called a public meeting to be held in the Council Chambers on Thursday evening to consider what should be done in respect to "Anzac, Day" in Akaroa.
