Foodstuffs should be available to the public in Auckland as usual on Monday as retail traders appreciate the need of enabling families to obtain their requirements folio ":ig the week-end. The upcertainty of the position this morning regarding peace celebrations made it impossible for the organisations responsible for the supply of % daily necessities such as meat, bread and groceries to make any definite plans for the closing of shops. "We will carry on as usual," said , Mr. A. E. Brownlie, president of the Auckland Master Bakers' Association. "The full quantity of bread normally available on Mondays will be baked during the week-end. We feel that arrangements should be made for big celebrations as soon as convenient after the official announcement of the cessation of hostilities." In the event of an official statement being issued during the weekend that the war was over, the grocers would make provision for people to do their shopping first thing on Monday morning, said Mr. R. M. Barker, secretary of the New Zealand Master Grocers' Association. As this was the second week of the current rationing period no food coupons would become available for the • first time on Monday, so that families should be a little better provided for than if such was not the case. Nothing definite could be said regarding the possible closing of butcher's shops, but it was indicated that if Monday were declared a public holiday butchers would be open for a short time. All arrangements have been made to obtain the usual supplies from the abattoirs.


Acting on instructions received from Washington, the U.S. authorities in Auckland to-day closed their local offices, granting their employees the rest of the day off. Work, however, was carried on at the wharves and at stores where American war stores were being handled.
