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. ■

The celebrations were held in brilliant spring weather.
