ARRANGEMENTS FOR CELEBRATION ON ENTRY INTO CONFEDERATION
Right Hon. L. S. St. Laurent (Prime Minister): May I take just a moment to remind all hon. members that the program for the ceremony of tomorrow appears in this afternoon’s newspapers. It will commence at twelve o’clock sharp on parliament hill, at the main entrance of the centre block. It will consist of a broadcast of that part of the ceremony
which will take place in St. John’s, to be followed immediately by brief addresses and by the first mallet strokes to carve the emblem of Newfoundland on the frontispiece of the arch of the peace tower. The whole ceremony is intended to last about three-quarters of an hour. At six o’clock the house took recess.
