CL OSED BY POLICE

FOUR CITY HOTELS SOME CROWDS OUT OF HAND Four city hotels were closed by the police late yesterday afternoon because the crowds which thronged them were getting out of hand.

After making a tour of Queen Street and other city streets yesterday afternoon and observing the thousands of broken bottles which littered the roadways and footpaths, Mr. J. H. Luxford, S.M., who is also chairman of the Auckland Licensing Committee, communicated with tne Superintendent of Police, Mr. J. and suggested that licensees should be requested not to sell bottled beer for consumption off the premises.
