ON WAR'S END

PUBLIC SERVICES

PROCESSION SUGGESTED

Advice was awaited from the Government as to the nature of national peace celebration plans, but the present intention, so far as Auckland was concerned, was that arrangements should be along the lines of those obtaining following VE day, said the Mayor, Mr. Allum, this morning. It was hoped that it would be possible to arrange a Victory Procession in Queen Street, as had been suggested by the Auckland interChurch Council of Public Affairs, but this would depend on the time the announcement of peace was made, added the Mayor. As soon as possible after the announcement a short service would be held at the apex of the Town Hall. The Papakura Camp Band and a citizens' choir, under Mr. Colin Muston, would lead the singing of hymns and the National Anthem. A short prayer would be read by the Rev. W. R. Milne, of Ponsonby. Mr. Allum said a citizens' thanksgiving service would be held in the Town Hall on the Sunday following the announcement.
