A TRIP ON A TRAWLER

Earlier this year Photo News photographer, Russell Spiller, very reluctantly hauled himself out of bed at 4 a.m. and set out on one of Napier's fishing trawlers with Peter Franklin, skipper of the “Cellina”, and David Plunket for a day's fishing.

At 5 a.m. the "Cellina" reached the fishing grounds at the end of the Pania Reef and our photographer managed to come up for air long enough to take this picture of Peter and David connecting the left-hand wire to the trawl-board. The net had been put over the side and 30 fathoms of wire let out. When all was ready and the trawler set on course, 100 fathoms were let out. The three hour trawl began and our unsteady photographer had time to regain his sea legs.

The trawl boards, one of which is being connected to the main wire by David Plunket, control the spread of the nets as they are being towed and on this trip new boards had been fitted.

Above left. The nets were hauled in after three hours but because the boards had been incorrectly adjusted, the nets spread too wide, with the result that a very poor catch was brought aboard.

David leans precariously over the side to adjust the trawl board chains.


Page 3

With everything set again, Peter Franklin lets out the wire for another three hour tow.

Now that the boards have been correctly adjusted, a much better catch is hauled aboard . . .

. . . and dumped on the deck ready for cleaning and boxing.


Page 4

There is always plenty to do to keep the crew busy while trawling. Here David and Peter are hosing down the previous catch with pumped sea water.

Then comes the job of cleaning and gutting the fish. No easy job on a pitching deck, but it's no trouble to these two.

Fish of all types, shapes and sizes come up with the nets, but many are tossed back into the sea with the waste matter.

A flock of seagulls are the trawler's constant companions. When the waste and unwanted fish are tossed over the side, their patience is rewarded in a big way.


Page 5

And they say fishermen get their money easily! With the day’s catch cleaned and boxed, the “Cellina” heads for home at 5.30 p.m. after being at sea for 13 hours.

Our photographer was quite happy to step ashore and take this picture of the trawler tied up with her sister ships at the Scapa Flow wharf.

The fishing trip featured, is the first after the "Cellina" had been on the slip for a refit and general maintenance. The catch was very much smaller than usual because of the many adjustments the running gear needed.

For those interested in her vital statistics here they are: length 50 feet, beam 12 feet, and draw of 5½  feet. She was built specially for fishing the Hauraki Gulf, and is thought to have been built for Zane Grey in the 1930's.

Travelling Abroad

When Mr. and Mrs. J Johnston, together with the Mayor and Mayoress of Napier, left for a world trip, crowds gathered at the airport to give them a “right-royal" send-off. Above, Mr. and Mrs. Johnston, surrounded by friends and acquaintances.

Specs certainly add that “professional” air - the M.C., Stuart McKenzie, introduces "I'm hung up”, Rector of the "Centennial University" (Harry Palmer) who addresses the gathering.

Bon Voyage - the crowd cheer as the travellers step aboard the 'plane. It seems they'll be missed around town. Mr. Johnson [Johnston] owned the putting green and boating lake on Napier’s Marine Parade.

Hello, who's here? Well, under the disguise of Mr. and Mrs. Johnson [Johnston], it's Pat Magill and Bill Dallimore.

"Winter Muff! Don't be silly - they're very fine feathers, and they do keep my neck warm." (A Jocobin Pigeon.)

"A tail that is my pride and joy - it blocks those nosy neighbours should I ever want to talk.

In case of rain 'tis handy too - I often like a little walk"

"I like my pond, I like my rain, this being on show is quite a strain".

WRESTLING at Hastings

Meet Lou (Shoulders) Newman, 17st. 5lb., of San Jose, California, U.S.A. He doesn't seem very pleased with the Hastings fans' enthusiasm. Well, who would like to be on the receiving end of an "Octopus Clamp", especially when Wairoa's wrestler Keita Meretana was on the other end. The two sensations met in the big bout at the Municipal Theatre, Hastings.

Newman (on top) lets Meretana know that he knows a few tricks too.

Meretana, who has spent a lot of time perfecting Lofty Blomfield's favourite hold, applies the famous octopus clamp.

And Newman, being a very wise wrestler, submits very quickly.

In the preliminary bouts Ken Matton and Ken Moore tussle it out.

They might be a little on the small side, but R. Cotterell and Gillet give the fans their money's worth.

B. Jensen and D. Tawhai - just a couple of crazy mixed-up kids.

Whoops! Hope there's a nice comfy knee down there - John Cheyn and Calvin Thompson about to join the spectators.

"WHITE HORSE INN" by the NAPIER OPERATIC SOCIETY

Dawn. Sunrise over the lake-mirrored mountains. A cock crow. Holdrio! . . . The morning silence is broken . . . and one of the world's most loved musicals of all times bursts into life - a life of singing and dancing with the folk of the famous "White Horse Inn" . . . the White Horse Inn, with its love-smitten head waiter, its young and charming proprietress, and the holiday-makers - the underwear manufacturers, the professor, their daughters, a solicitor, and a honeymoon couple; and there's a chorus of more than sixty voices.

There have been months and months of rehearsing. Here three of the principles, Patricia Reade, Terry Coyle and Ann Clifford, look over their lines.

The leads, Grinkle (Kitt Tilten-Mist), Ottoline (Ann Clifford), Sutton (Barry Ritchie), Gretel (Lesley Murphy) and Sigismund (Alan Turner), outside the Inn with Leopold (Terry Coyle) and Josepha (Patricia Reade).


Page 24

The Courier (Ian McLean) is greeted by Karl (Ross Jones) "Piccolo", waiter at the White Horse Inn.

Just fancy Grinkle dancing! It's a show that's full of romance . . . and comedy, too!

Sutton causes Leopold a little concern . . . but when he meets Ottoline, events happen very quickly.

What more romantic place could a bride (Pat Chapman) find to spend her honeymoon than at the "White Horse Inn".

N.Z. Players

Napier saw the last performance. Yes, they've had to disband - but the N.Z. Players' production of Arthur Miller's controversial play "A View From the Bridge" has been acclaimed by the critics as the Players' "greatest triumph yet". Here is the cast, as they assembled for the first time before rehearsals began. From left: Roy W. Bonnell, Jeremy Stephens, Robin King, Noel Perry, Roy Hope (artistic director); Kay Stoneman, Murray Brown, Thane Bettany, Josephine Brunet and Colin Wilson.

It's been a great day, but members are already looking forward to their next opening day.

Marewa members, M. Nicol (Skip), S. Winstanley, D. Pierson and P. Forward, were the winners of the Dominion fours tournament, 1958-59.

It's a great life - especially when great-grandmother can play too.

Anna Belle PRESENTS FASHIONS FROM THE ORIENT

When the play "The World of Susy Wong" hit Broadway, it triggered off a new fashion craze - a fashion that's fascinatingly feminine - and fascinatingly different. The "split side story" is perhaps the biggest surprise of the year - it's front-page news everywhere in the world of fashion - even on the Continent.

Anna Belle are so excited about these new styles, they are presenting an early preview. The "Cheongsam" is certainly eye catching. It's so elegant and practical, and can be worn anywhere, anytime. All the models here are exclusive to Anna Belle, the House of Fashion in Hawke's Bay. Hair styles are by "Sareta".

Nan says it's fun to wear a cheongsam.

All the charm and glamour of the Orient - Nan, Val, and Wendy, in their cheongsams by Alice Edwards. Note the side splits and diagonal fastening at the neckline.

Anna Belle wearing a "Poi Pounder Pants" set, by Miss Hawaii. There are side splits in the pants, and the oriental flavour does add that "demure" touch to the jacket.

Howard Morrison Quartette COMES TO TOWN

America has her idols, England her’s, Paris her’s - and New Zealand? Yes, we've got ours too, and we’ve every reason to be proud of them. Howard Morrison, Noel King [Kingi], Jerry Merito and Wi Wharekura. (left to right) are real nice guys who have “sure got the public down under“ - and it's not only the crazy mixed-up kids either! With their versatility and humour they’ve won fans everywhere.

It was a rousing welcome, but the driver certainly had difficulty getting away. Oh well! it's not every day a "top-pops" recording group visit the Bay. So great was public demand, the artists staged an extra show and even that was "booked out".


Page 46

They're great fun and a real tonic. Patients and nurses of the Napier Public Hospital were entertained by the famous group.

Howard Morrison, leader of the group, sings "She's Mine" to Mrs Bendall, who has been a patient in Coleman Ward for more than 6 months, while Nurse Carroll looks on.

THERE Yesterday

Yes, another old Napier landmark has had to make way for the new. Piece by piece the building has been carefully demolished - but for the old St. John's Cathedral it is not the end. Our two bottom pictures show the church being fitted together on its new foundations, jigsaw style, at the Presbyterian site at Wycliffe Street, where it will serve a new community

& HERE To-day

Sid Skelton (left) and Eric Gust use a jack to separate the foundations from the old vestry.

Cutting the floor into manageable sections for removal, are Tom Chalmers (with hand saw) and Ern Bell.

BIRDS EYE SOCIAL AT HASTINGS

It was a great night's entertainment at the Hastings Assembly Hall when Bird's Eye held their cabaret style social.

A Maori concert party is always popular.

Well it's not 'Seven little girls sitting the back seat", but whatever "Fred's" got, Mr. Milne must have too - the seven lasses with him are, from left: P. Marsh, C. Christopherson, I. McCullum, N. Bullock, J. O'Carroll, W. Wall and I. Strickland.

Wairoa little THEATRE

More than 60 players, musicians, and dancers, took part in Enid Harker's and Billie McCorkindale's production "The Babes In the Wood". This is the third pantomime the Wairoa Little Theatre has staged at Napier.

Some of the cast on stage.

Carl Mumm and Peter Millett seem a little surprised.

The stage wasn't big enough for B. Fraser, so he presented a little show all of his own in the auditorium.

A curtain call for Des Cairns, Shona Cooper, Wendy Harker, Malcolm McMillen and Colleen Doyle.

There was talent aplenty - and glamour too - in the Little Theatre's production.

Even the men don't mind being "made-up" for the show, especially when there's a moustache in the offing. T. Watts and D. Goldfinch seem very proud of their's.

HASTINGS JUNIOR NATURALISTS CLUB OUTING

Members of the Hastings Junior Naturalists' Club take time off for a picnic lunch during an outing into the native bush at Balls Clearing, Puketitiri.

Before entering the bush, Mr. Reg Williams talks on the history of the reserve and gives instructions to an eager gathering of members. At the moment it looks as if Mr Williams is not receiving the full attention of all his listeners, some of whom seem to be more interested in having their picture taken.


Page 55

Neverending scenes of beauty greet the naturalists as sunlight filters down through the tall trees to the magnificent undergrowth.

Tuis, bellbirds and wood pigeons were seen in the tops of these towering giants.

The boys find something of interest.

The girls in the party weren't afraid to go fossicking on their own either.


Page 56

A tasty morsel for some bird. The boys crowd around as Mr. Williams talks on a large caterpillar that has been found. Mr. Williams stated that this was the largest specimen he had ever seen.

Heather Stephenson, Judith Smith and Louella Martin, brought their own lunch along.

The native bush used to extend over this area. The timber has been milled and the land developed into a farming area.
