FRESH BREAD BAKED
NO SERIOUS SHORTAGES
Many Auckland housewives found this morning that their bakers had left extra bread, in some cases as many as half a dozen loaves. Fresh bread was baked last night, but no further supplies will be available before Monday.
Householders' requirements yesterday were met, on the whole, satisfactorily. except for small goods, and bread, which was then in sufficient supply to meet the sudden rush on stores. Shops were continuously crowded from shortly after 11 o'clock until they closed.
Butchers' shops will be open to-morrow as usual. Grocers who sell bread were open for two hours to-day and will observe usual business hours to-morrow. Dairies were open between 9 a.m. arjd 11 a.m. to-day.
Inquiries at city hotels this morning revealed that there were no serious food shortages. Most hote'ls had replenished their larders in anticipation of the peace announcement. ■
P.A. INVERCARGILL, Wed. Any thoughts of anti-climax because of the false alarms of the past few days were quickly dispelled when it was announced that Japan had accepted the Allied terms of surrender. Invercargill let itself go in no uncertain style, hilarious rejoicing being the keynote. Lorries packed with strikingly-dressed singing and noisy youths and girls, drove around the streets with sirens at full blast, and long "crocodiles" of men and women soon took charge of the footpaths. The celebrations were held in brilliant spring weather.
