At the same time, in another Cape Privince town and in the Transvaal, two South African Ministers reaffirmed the Government's preparedness to use drastic measures to combat the defiance campaign. In the gold-mining town of Kimberley 14 Africans died and 39 were hurt when a handful of police opened Are with rifles and Sten guns to escape thousands of rioting Africans. Four of the injured Africans are expected to die. Police were surrounded by hostile Africans when they rushed to the scene Emergency May be Called The Minister for Justice !Mr. C. R. Swart) announced last night that a state of emergency would be declared in Port Elizabeth tomorrow the date of the one-day strike by non-Europeans if the position warranted it. The strike has been called by the African National Congress In protest against the curfew ban on non-religious meetings following the deaths of four Europeans and seven Africans In the Port Elizabeth suburb of New Brighton last month.

Symphony for Tin Whistle and Toy Trumpet foil can use a mighty and magnificent grand piano, a 30,000 Stradivarius violin or a sixpenny tin whistle and still get music. Though a lot of tortured parents might not believe It around December 25, this was proved In yesterday's Music for the People concert at the Princess Theatre. Amid compositions by Rossini, Salnt-Saens, Offenbach and Donizetti, put strode six members of the Australian Symphony Orchestra. One had a cuckoo whistle, one a toy drum with soldiers painted on Its sides, one a "jigger" that tweeted like a canary, another a raucous trumpet. The others had also been shopping in city toy stores. The orchestra stuck up Haydn's Toy Symphony, the cuckoo whistle cuckooed, the toy drum went bang and the "Jigger tweeted like an early morning bird cage. The result was music, nd how the capacity fcudlence loved it. Tne story goes that Hadyn wrote the Toy Symphony after he had bought a collection ol whistles, drums and trumpets for some penniless children In his neighborhood, . Hadyn is called "the father ol the symphony." of the riot, and had to fight their way clear and retreat to bring up reinforcements. Police said that the riot began when Africans created a disturbance in a beer hall by kicking mugs around and attempted to rob the till. After the riot beer from the wrecked beer hall flowed down the street. A reinforced police force repulsed the Africans when they advanced in a body, and eventually (Mr. C. F. McArthur) that the city be placed under military control and that the wartime civilian protective service be revived. Mr. Swart said an emergency would not be declared unless police said they could not handle the situation. Then the army would take over.

The mob stoned the police, seriously injuring an African detective. The municipal recreation centre, a post office, a police van nd two municipal lorries were set alight by the rioters. Later last night Africans made an unsuccessful attempt to burn down a beer hall in another location. No other incidents were reported. plies to Europeans as well as Africans. Only religious, sporting and certain other gatherings are exempted. In Johannesburg last night the Minister for the Interior Dr. Eben Donges, said that the Government was entitled to expect the support of every right-thinking citizen of South Africa in any action it might take against the leaders of the defiance campaign. Two More Days of Rain Likely The Weather Bureau expects rain in Melbourne t,n nnnt.tnnp fnr fho tinvr two days at least.. one official said last night he expected this week to follow the same lines as last week, with perhaps only two fine days before a return to southerly winds and showers. In the nine days of this month, Melbourne has had 203 points of rain, as against a normal 233 for November. Up to nine o'clock last night 15 points fell In 12 hours. Should the average monthly rainfall be passed this month, as expected. It will be the eighth successive month wetter than normal. Cool, southerly winds and showers are forecast for today. Rain in the eastern and southern districts is moving eastwards and the high levels in streams are being maintained. lb' ; - rl-i nil -i--nnw ! f'-liw It -(i -Mr - . i miri-TOr -i i r'lT WHETHER IN CITY OR COUNTRY, show day is a proud lime ior exhibitors.

CHIEF JUSTICE'S Dedication to of Coronation Needed9' Yesterday was the anniversary of the Call to the People of Australia, made on Remembrance day last year by church leaders and members of the judiciary throughout the Commonwealth. In a nationwide broadcast on all national and commercial radio stations last night, the Chief Justice of Victoria (Sir Edmund Herring), one of the original signatories to the Call, said: "One year ago, Church leaders and members of the judiciary Joined to put out a call to the people of Australia. "The past year has confirmed the hope that many Australians would understand the Call and respond to it. May I thank all those who have re sponded, all those who have helped to spread its message and make clear its meaning. "The coming year is the year of our Queen's coronation. "We arc inclined to think of the coronation as being no more than a great pageant. But it is more than this. It is essentially a service of deep religious and spiritual significance.

Queen's Pledge "At this time we should renew our loyalties to the Crown and acknowledge and accept our responsibilities to one another. "These and many other great considerations suggest that we Join with her Majesty in a period of preparation for the crowning. "We should all recall the Queen's own pledge as she gave It to us on her twenty-first birthday. "She said, you will remember: 'I declare before you all that my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service and the service of our great Imperial family to which we all belong. " 'But I shall not have the strength to carry out this resolution alone, unless you Join in it with me as I now Invite you to do. I know that your sup port will be unfailingly given. " 'God help me to make good my vow and Ond bless all of you who are willing to share in It.' " The Standing Committee in support of the Call, through Its members in all States, plans an active "pre-coronatlon campaign" the prime purpose of which Is to emphasise the spiritual and moral character of the coronation and Its concepts of dedication and vocational responsibility. (Other references, Page 1) Country I 1 Law Challenge if Expulsions Mr. Holiday, M.L.A., said last night that "litigation might folloM'" any at- tempt by today's meeting of the Liberal and Country party State executive to expel members of the breakaway group re-endorsed by iheir branches. He said: "Any action the State executive might take on these lines would be unconstitutional. "I-don't think it would try It." Opposition to the re-endorsement of breakaway L.C.P. members as candidates for the election is certain to be voiced at today's meeting. However, it is considered most unlikely that the meeting would decide on so drastic a step as expulsion. Another moVe likely to be made at the meeting is to urge that State executive rescind the endorsements of the breakaways. Likely Step The most likely action to be taken against the breakaways Is that the executive may decide today to authorise multi-L.C.P. endorsements for the election. In this way "loyal" L.C.P. members could be endorsed to oppose each of the breakaway members. The Leader of the L.C.P. (Mr. Norman) will not attend today's meeting. He will rest before opening his campaign at Canterbury Memorial Hall tonight. (Other References, Page 4.) Remembrance Day Services Special commemoration services were held in churches of all denominations in Australia yesterday for Remembrance day. The day commemorated falls tomorrow, November 11, when the first world war ended. The original name was Armistice day, but this was changed to Remembrance day to include the last war. At 11 o'clock tomorrow mornlne the 11th hour of the "11th day of the 11th month there will be the usual two minutes' silence for those who sacrificed their lives in war. The ceremony at the Shrine of Remembrance tomorrow will have greater significance than in years past because the Governor (Sir Dallas Brooks) will unveil the foundation stone of the new forecourt. This Is being built to perpetuate the memory of those who gave their lives in the second world war. The Governor will arrive at the Shrine at 10.44 a.m. and the service will then begin. The unveiling ceremony will take place after the service). " a rt i k. MDirHC I rKAVCD TALKS POLICY London Economic Conference Plans CANBERRA, Sunday.
