PROVINCIAL CHAMPS

The Hawke's Bay - Poverty Bay Track and Field Championships which were held at McLean Park recently, were a great success, with many records being broken and equalled. Above we see H. Twigley of Gisborne clearing the bar at 5 feet 11 inches.

The field gets under way in the three mile event. This was won by R. Wilton (Taradale) who beat his own record.

Margaret Riggs (Napier) finishes strongly to win the 440 yards women's final. Margaret equalled the existing record for this race and in the evening set a new time for the 880 yards.

NZ. WOOL AWARDS

A recent Fashion Show, held in the Municipal Theatre, Napier, and organised by the NZ. Wool Board and the Napier Lions Club was to help raise monies for the “Save the Children" fund. Above we see the premier wool award for 1962 - a man’s coat - which just goes to show that men can reach the dizzy heights in the world of fashion, but we think the girls can fill them better. Mannequins are Norma MacDonald (Wellington), a member of the Pacific Life Saving Club (who stood in at the last minute and who wishes to remain anonymous) and Diana Broadhead (Wellington).

ROBYN AND SELWYN

Selwyn Toogood sits beside eleven year old Robyn Shirley of Napier, who is crippled, and when Selwyn heard that Robyn wanted very much to see his show, he arranged to have a chair in the wing of the theatre for her. We feel it must have been a great thrill for Robyn and know she thoroughly enjoyed herself.

ANYTHING GOES TWISTING

“Anything Goes - Again”, started off. with a clatter and clang, as tin baths, trick bikes and left-handed bagpipes descended on the Mayfair Theatre from all directions. Above, we caught this well filled bath tub being bundled in through the trades-men‘s entrance, escorted by Hayden Shirley, John Minty and Joe Corry. The gorgeous contents are Mrs. Kerri Rowell and Mrs. Helen Cornliesse who, incidently, won the Scavenger Hunt. Pretty good scavengers, eh!

The internal machinations started with a solo "Twist" up and down the aisle by Tommy Taewa.

Keith Richardson makes a rumbling sound which John Minty records for posterity.


Page 13

During the course of the Show a Twist competition was held and these pictures show some of the movements of this fascinating dance. Above are the winners of the competition, Herbie Pawhau and Donna Cotter. Below we see Dennis Ango and Beverly Murfhitt.


Page 14

After the Twist proper, we come to the Twist impromptu as performed by John (moments like these) Minty and Keith (spinning disc) Richardson, later known as “Slipped Disc" Richardson.

John, proving he can do two things at once, twists and gives himself a towel down at the same time.

Same action, rear view.

Keith, really getting down to a low roll.

Looks like the Richardson version of Boomps-a-Daisy, or perhaps somebody has nailed his boots to the floor.


Page 15

A duet, note the knee action of the chassis.

The fun ended with Keith and John having a custard pie duel for the honour of being the biggest (sorry, best) twister.

The audience thoroughly enjoyed the show.

what do you look for when buying furniture and furnishings? what importance do you place on price alone? . . . little, we hope, because we know that without QUALITY there cannot be VALUE and without GOOD DESIGN pride of ownership does not exist long.
we at the Rees Furnishing go to infinite trouble to find and assemble for your inspection and approval only furniture and furnishings that meet our high standards in DESIGN.

GOLF SEASON OPENS

Maraenui Golf Club got away to a good start this season with a mixed Stableford at the club’s links at Awatoto. A large number of players were on the course and above we see a small section waiting to tee off.

Below is the presidents group. Left to right, Mr. W. Harvey (Hastings President) and Mrs. Harvey, Mr. S. Parsons (Napier President) and Mrs. Parsons, and Maraenui President, Mr C. Holland and Mrs Holland.

OLD TIMERS HAVE THEIR NIGHT

"Come on Dad" was the cry as old timers showed their paces at a light hearted swimming evening held at the Mahora Baths, Hastings.

Some of the old timers had very queer starting positions.

Young R. Ayres (on his uncle's knee) cheers his dad on.

Dads, lined up for a leisurely 50 yard sprawl (sorry, crawl). Te. McCracken was first, folowed home by M. Littlejohn.

Page 21

50 yards seems to have been a little too much for these two old boys as they are hauled rather unceremoniously from the water. This is what comes of sitting back and watching Mum mow the lawn.

HORSE SHOW INTERNATIONAL

The Australian stable proved to be a popular draw at the New Zealand Horse Society’s tenth annual Show at Tomoana Showgrounds recently. Below we see a group of youngsters watching a member of the Australian team grooming his horse.

Members of the Australian Equestrian Team who have been touring New Zealand. From left to right, Peter Wintom (Brahmin), Bill Hyem (Coronation), Hugh Wood, Manager (Ocean Foam), Miss Margery Coombs (Pleasure), Kevin Bacon (Kimberley), Miss Bridget Macintyre (Lookout).

SPEEDBOAT REGATTA

The bank of the Ngaruroro River at Clive was crowded with people and boats for the Heretaunga Power Boat Club's annual regatta.

The boats roar down the straight, churning the river into a seething mass.

These three boaties may look at though they are enjoying a cool game of cards but in actual fact they are looking for a boat.

And here she comes up from the deep. Vega, driven by P. Mudgway struck a submerged log and sank, with a hole torn in the bottom.


Page 26

The Wairoa boat "Dutchie" at speed.

The big boy of the show was R. Whitwell’s “Polaris”, developing 3,000 h.p. and a speed of 75 m.p.h. in the straights, it was able to lap the field in the major event.

“Can Can“ fighting it out on the turn amid blinding spray.

“Can Can" boxed in and narrowly missed by "Autocrat" and “Superace” was forced to stop hecausse of a fire in the air intake. The driver fortunately managed to smother the fire with his crash helmet.


Page 28

WATTIE'S

With fantastic speed, fire spread through a large section of Wattie's food processing plant in Hasting causing untold damage, but fortunately, no loss of life. The city of Hastings immediately swung into action with fire fighters, pofice, civil defence personnel and Wattie's own staff and averted what could have been a major disaster for province and country.

NEXT MORNING

As soon as it was possible, men moved in, and started to clean up. “Back into production”, was the order of the day and the scene next morning was incredible as men with trucks, bulldozers and front-end loaders frantically tore at the debris in an effort to get the factory going again.


Page 31

This twisted mass of iron and steel was still hot when this photo was taken.

Broken and burnt machines, mute evidence of disaster.


Page 32

Within hours, machines were being serviced and made ready for production again. Here we see Mike Ellingham and John Bell working on a machine.

A front-end loader (left) removing a stack of damaged cans and (right) a welder engaged in cutting away the still hot steel girders.

Three Days Later

In a matter of days the damaged section of the factory was back in production and on this page we see girls packing cans of pears as they come off the line.


Page 34

Mrs. Garnett, Mrs. Mackintosh, Marie Waish, Mrs. Lister and Mrs. Mona King, mark and pack cans ready for labels. The labelling at this stage was being done by hand as the machines were lost in the fire. “Photo News” would like to congratulate all the little people who turned this near disaster into a personal triumph.

SCOUTS' DREAM FULFILLED

After five years of planning and hard work, the Napier South Scout Troop has finally reached its goal in the completion of the new Rewi Smith Scout Hall.

Above: A few hours before the opening ceremony members of the troop were busy erecting all those things so dear to boy scouts everywhere. The toilers, Paul Leatic, Graham Weaver, Alen Wyndham and Michael Howell were putting the finishing touches to a quite remarkable entrance.

Other members lashing together the framework of observation tower, prior to erecting it.


Page 36

Littlejohn (Mr. J. R. Cooksey) declares the hall (or to use Littlejohn's own words "the Den") open. The official opening unfortunately owing to rain had to be performed inside.

Mrs. Avis Dawson receives a "Thanks Badge" from Patrol Leader Howell for her untiring efforts in helping to make this hall a reality.


Page 37

A feature of this hall is the Memorial Maori Gateway over the fireplace which belonged to the troop's first King Scout, John Daniell, who gave his life trying to save another. In front of the arch are Mr. and Mrs. J. Daniell with Littlejohn and Kea Angove,the troop’s present Scout Master.

At the completion of the ceremony the guests adjourned outside while afternoon tea was prepared. It was then that Littlejohn decided to try out the Flying Fox, built by the boys.

KLICKING NOT KLACKING

In an effort to raise funds for the “Save the Children” fund, the Napier Lions Club in conjunction with Blythes and Selwyn Toogood organised the Napier section of the national peggy- square knitting contest.

At 9.30 in the mornimg the only sound to be heard was the click of 31 pairs of needles as the ladies got down to business. Strange to say, not one was talking.

Mrs. Duncan of Napier, the winner, who knitted in conventional manner at a fantastic speed.

Mrs. Mills of Hastings, a very close second, who knitted continental style.


Page 39

To help pass the time and raise extra cash for the fund, Selwyn offered to demonstrate the "Twist" for a pound a time.

The big man twists

Patricia Cummings of Women's Hour tried to interview Selwyn but only got hauled into twisting.

REPERTORY PRESENTS

The first 1962 major production of the Napier Repertory Player’s, "The Shifting Heart” marks the official opening of the Little Theatre in McGrath Street. Produced by May MacDonald the play covers a wide range, from comedy to tragedy and is the story of an Italian family of immigrants in a poor class suburb in Melbourne and their struggle for acceptance as dinkum Australians.

Bill Corfield, who plays Poppa Bianchi, had to learn to play the harmonica as well as act the part.

"Will you control your dago temper". The word "dago" lies between Italian Maria and Australian Clarry like a perpetual challenge.


Page 41

Producer May MacDonald finds it harder work watching than the cast do acting.

Properties are begged, borrowed or stolen. In charge of this department, Patricia Swindell and Margaret White are quite happy with the Christmas tree Gino gives to his Momma. They don’t even mind Garry’s empty beer bottles, but they do dislike being responsible for the ancient piece of fish that Bianchi’s next door neighbours throw over the fence.

ODD SHOT

This rather battered and cabless truck toppled into the Iron Pot recently while working on the remains of the old J.D.O. Dredge.

LIVE THEATRE

When the travelling Drama Quartet of the New Zealand Theatre Company visited schools in the province recently, they were playing to the most appreciative and possibly the most critical of audiences an actor or actress can face - children. It can be safely said that the group held the audience spellbound at all times. Excerpts from many plays were presented.

Simple demonstration of the art of mime was shown to the children and here we see a homely winter scene, with one girl sitting on the floor in front of a fire, while the second girl knits and the two men play chess.

A theatrical shot of the quartet, left to right, Eric Wood, Raeburn Hirsch, Barbara Laurenson and Doug Nottage.

A scene from the play "Androcles and the Lion" shows Androcles played by Doug Nottage and the Lion by Eric Wood.

These three youngsters appear to be living the parts.


Page 43

During the course of the plays the telephoto lens was turned on the audience and here we see some of the many expressions registered as the children intently watched the plays.

Thank you, Barbara, Doug, Eric and Raeburn.

JUNIOR RED CROSS

An International Exhibition of the art and craft work carried out by boy and girl members of the Junior Red Cross throughout the world shows local crafts, art work and costumes of their countries, thereby creating better understanding of the ways of life in places which are little more than names on a map to the boys and girls of this province. By the time the doors closed on the exhibition, which was held in the Assembly Hall, Hastings, nearly 3,000 children apart from adults had viewed the display.

Above. Pride of place went to the N.Z. exhibit of toys etc., made by Junior Red Cross members for the less fortunate children of our hospitals.

Three year old, Ingrid Erickson handles a toy destined for some child in hospital.

SCHOOL SWIMMING

With the season almost over, “Photo News" had a difficult time keeping up with all the school swimming sports, but selected Wycliffe (a comparatively new school) to represent the whole and perhaps see if there are any future stars among the pupils. Young J. Scott appears to have a swimming future if she sticks at it. Above we see the male section really cheering the competitors on.

The winners of the diving gave an exhibition during the afternoon T. Karatu and J. Scott making dives from the one metre board.


Page 51

Novelty pyjama races were held (one each for boys and girls) in which competitors had to swim a width of the baths, don pyjamas and swim back, not very easy to do when wet. Here we see two of the girls struggling manfully and a boy taking the plunge, good training in a light hearted manner against the possibility of these youngsters ever having to swim with their clothes on.

The field in the Junior Girls' breaststroke race makes an interesting water pattern.

EX-P.O.W.s PICNIC

The ex Prisoners of War picnic which was held at Eskdale Park on Sunday, 11th February, was well attended by young and old and a lot of fun was had by all. Above.

FIRE FIRE

A fire which threatened two wards of the Napier Hospital in the late afternoon of Sunday, 18th March and preceded by a deafening explosion, completely destroyed the hospital's large wooden workshop, containing the splints and boot department and hearing aid clinic. Firemen working with speedy efficiency brought the blaze under control in half an hour. Because of their proximity to the outbreak, the patients (26 women and 30 children) in Margaret and Shrimpton Wards were removed to the safety of other parts of the hospital. As well as valuable mechanical and surgical equipment lost, there were three cars destroyed and one badly damaged in the blaze. Above: Firemen working on the east side of blazing building.

One of the cars lost in the blaze. Some fear was expressed at the time in case the petrol tank exploded.
