  • Description

    IN SALISBURY, THE CAPITAL OF RHODESIA, CELEBRATIONS WERE HELD YESTERDAY (THURSDAY) TO COMMEMORATE THE ARRIVAL 78 YEARS BEFORE OF THE FIRST PIONEERS.

    THE MAJOR PART OF THE CELEBRATIONS WAS IN THE FORM OF A MEMORIAL SERVICE, WHICH WAS ATTENDED BY THE RHODESIAN PREMIER, IAN SMITH. THE UNION JACK FLEW AT THE SERVICE BUT OBSERVERS IN SALISBURY SAY IT COULD BE THE LAST TIME THE BRITISH FLAG WILL BE USED FOR THIS CEREMONY.

    THE DESIGN FOR A NEW RHODESIAN FLAG HAS PASSED ITS SECOND READING IN PARLIAMENT. PIONEER SOCIETY MEMBERS ARE SAID TO BE OPPOSED TO THE USE OF ANY FLAG OTHER THAN THE UNION JACK. MR. SMITH LAID A WREATH DURING THE SERVICE AND LATER ADDRESSED A LARGE CROWD.
