War Workers At Garden Party

For King And Queen

N.Z. Press Association—Copyright Rec. noon. LONDON, July 18. Cheering crowds in Belfast lined the processional route to see the King and Queen and Princess Elizabeth drive to Parliament. Ulster police late last night checked identity cards in Belfast streets and maintained a strict watch along the route. The King, so as not to disappoint the shipyard workers, ordered that the whole programme should be carried out as if he had arrived by sea as was originally planned. Some 5000 Ulster war workers mobbed Their Majesties and the Princess Elizabeth at a garden party in Belfast. Loudspeakers blared instructions to the people to spread about over the lawns but they clustered around the King and Queen, overturning benches and chairs. Their Majesties finally withdrew to the Royal enclosure, where about 50 men and women from aircraft and munition factories were presented to them. The King and Queen also walked round behind the rope barrier and shook hands and talked with war workers to the accompaniment of continual cheers. The King, speaking at the opening of Parliament, from which ten Nationalist members were absent, paid a tribute to the country's effort throughout the war.
