IN PARLIAMENT HOUSE

BELLS RING; GONG STRUCK Parliamentary Reporter. WELLINGTON, this day. Parliament House also celebrated audibly when the news was received. The division bells were rung throughout the building and to provide further noise the gong outside the Government caucus room was struck lustily with a hammer in turn by a dozen or more people. "it was not inappropriate that this gong should have been struck, for it was a reminder of the dark days when the Japanese hordes were moving southwards across the Pacific. It was one of several similar gongs installed in various parts of the building to sound an alarm if the occasion arose in connection with E.P.S. activities.
