  • Description

    The South Pacific Conference opened at the Lae Technical School on Tuesday. Film shows the Administrator for the territory Papua/New Guinea, Sir Donald Cleland, arriving for the opening ceremony. There was almost continuous rain and deep mud which robbed the ceremony of its colour.

    Sir Donald Cleland inspected a guard of honour drawn from members of the police in Papua/New Guinea. Sir Donald Cleland, and the other delegates then went into the Conference Hall where the Administrator officially opened the conference. Part of his opening speech is covered here, sound on film.
