Back Cover. Winner of the 1963 Moffat Cup, the Hawke's Bay yacht “Surprise”, skippered by Bob Gunson.
Like “a painted Ship upon a painted ocean”, the Wellington entry barely makes way.
MOFFAT CUP CONTEST
Held in Hawke Bay recently, off Napier, the National Moffat Cup Contest was beset with extremes in weather conditions, starting under storm weather conditions, and ending with a ﬂat calm, with a day of good weather conditions in between.
Above we see the Auckland entry, and below, Canterbury, both moving with a bone in their teeth.

The moral of this picture is, go on your honeymoon by plane, train or bus, or else plant a decoy and then calmly drive away from the reception in another car, as was the case here.

Also shown were the two gowns designed by Hastings designer, Rosewitha Robertson. Above is the wedding gown “Pink Orchid” made from blush pink satin with heavily encrusted beaded collar entwining through front folds framing the neck line. The full-length veil falls from the back collar to the hemline of the train and is sprinkled with leaves and ﬂowers, pearldrops and diamante.
"Tosca", the Gown oi the Year, designed in the Grand Opera style in a deep red colour beautifully embroidered with diamante. Both gowns were modelled by Colleen Tait of Hastings.
Crossing Troubles. On a recent ﬁne Sunday, a long line of cars were returning from Westshore Beach, and, turning into Taradale Road, found the road blocked at the level crossing, where line repairs were in progress. It was then that drivers caused their own trafﬁc snarl by trying to cross over the traffic that was turning into Taradale Road, which was going to have to turn back anyway.
Landscape work carried out last year in the Napier Botanical Gardens have helped to make these gardens a pleasant retreat.
Peter Snell and Don Clarke, two of the great names in New Zealand sport, pictured with Greater Hastings Public Relations Officer, Mr. Ken Sparks.
While on visit to Napier to talk over their sporting careers, Peter Snell and Don Clarke were guests of Greater Hastings at a special dinner at the Hawke‘s Bay Farmers. Snell took the opportunity for a piece of training by running the distance between the two cities via the main highway, collected his clothes, had a shower, and appeared in top form for the dinner.
Glad to be back home with her owner, Mrs. Starnes, of the S.P.C.A. Boarding Kennels, Bessie the black Labrador dog, makes a fuss of her owner after being lost and then successfully found within 24 hours in Hastings recently. Following a phone call from a resident of the Pakowhai area, Mrs. Starnes went out in her car to investigate, and sure enough, there was Bessie waiting to be picked up. The dog holds special favour with Mrs. Starnes, for she had nursed it back to health when it was found hobbling along near Whakatu with a broken leg.
PRODUCTION OF A MAGAZINE
A project which is causing great interest among the pupils of Form I-II at Bledisloe School, Taradale, is the production of its first class magazine. Above, a class panel interviews noted All Black, Kelvin Tremain.
The class as a unit working on all the many articles that go to make a magazine.
Suzanne Eden and Heather Ramage working with a reference book, put together an article on the Gum Emperor Moth.
Linda Gibson and Helen McLeod pursue [peruse] the daily newspaper for items of interest.
Diane Sherborne locates, from a national daily newspaper, the source of news items, using a map of the world for reference.
Filing clerk, Kerry Bower, checks her file for articles of interest.
The recent interview of Kelvin Tremain by the class was recorded on tape, and here we see Garry Nugeut writing an article from the questions and answers of that interview.
Wendy Lee draws an illustration for the article, on the Gum Emperor. Wendy is drawing from life, as the class is making a study of this moth.
One of the most important links in the chain is typist Ann Tetley. To her falls the job of typing all the copy neatly, and without any mistakes.
The printing department. Here we see Winnie Luke (second from the left) operating the printing press, while Linton Palmer checks the paper feed and Len Anderson (on the left) removes the printed sheets from the shute.
Standing by is Wendy Lee, who also has the exacting task of proof reading the first sheet off, and of making sure all pages will back up correctly when the magazine is finally colated together.

Gigantic earth works are being undertaken for the formation of the sealed runway at the Hawke’s Bay Airport, Napier, as shown in the above aerial view, taken from the southern approach, looking towards Bay View in the rear. The existing terminal buildings are on the right hand side of the picture with a portion of Westshore. It was announced recently that Fokker Friendship aircraft will come into service on the new airstrip around November of this year. The deep ditches that run diagonally across the land are to drain away seepage from the strip, which at this point is barely four feet above sea level.
Now in service on the Hastings-Napier to Auckland route non-stop, are two N.A.C. D.C. 3's with completely redesigned interiors, which include new seats and larger windows that enable all passengers to obtain an excellent View of the passing landscape The cabins have improved sound proofing and this, coupled with the tasteful colour scheme of grey and blue in pastel shades, makes for a very pleasant journey for passengers on these ﬂights.
Size of the new windows can be judged as hostesses Sally Lilico and Mary Tuckwell watch the scene from the waiting aircraft.
Skyliner "Napier", the ﬁrst of the new fleet recently visited Hawke's Bay prior to going into service on N.A.C.'s direct service to Auckland. “Napier” will be joined by the second Skyliner “Hastings”, later this month.
Prior to taking up service, the new airliner carried out courtesy ﬂights over the area, carrying a number of local citizens as N.A.C.'s guests.
Among guests on the first flight were the Mayors of Hastings and Napier, Mr. Giorgi and Mr. Tait, pictured here boarding the Skyliner.
Passengers on the first flight settle back to enjoy themselves in new and pleasant surroundings.
Hostess Mary Tuckwell prepares the individual trays which are being served in the cabin.
Hostess Sally Lilico serves morning tea during the ﬂight.
NEW ZEALAND SURF LIFE SAVING CHAMPIONSHIPS
The March Past, one of the highlights of the carnival.
A most successful National Surf Life Saving carnival was held at Westshore Beach, and the Hawke's Bay Surf Life Saving Association are to be congratulated on ﬁrst class organisation and management. In the following pages are pictured some of the many highlights of the carnival.

Possibly the most exciting part of the programme were the surf boat and canoe races. Pictured are a few of the many incidents.

Firemen worked for about two hours to bring this plantation fire under control in Omahu Road recently. An orchard sprayer, tank stand, fruit pallets and other orchard equipment were destroyed by the blaze, which started in pine trees ﬂanking the orchard.
POWER BOAT REGATTA
There was a real picnic spirit in the air at Lake Roto-a-Kiwi, near Te Aute, when the Heretaunga Power Boat Club held its regatta recently. Hundreds of visitors came to this back country lake to enjoy the thrills of this water sport. Above is a view of the lake with some of the cars.
A line-up of boats which participated in the Heretaunga Power Boat Club's regatta.
Raffles, the fastest V-bottom boat in Australasia, driven by Peter Douglas of Hastings, won the A-Class Championship event. Powered by a Corvette motor and handicapped heavily, it put up phenomenal performances. Behind Raffles is Dustie, driven by S. Dustin, Wanganui.
T. Waretiti, Hastings, in his newly built Chaos, scrambles after the elusive Raffles during an A-Class race. Following Chaos is Kaye II.
Calypso comes home under tow. A crash boat slowly moves the broken-down Calypso in towards shore when it struck trouble in a B-Class Midget race.
Vega, an A-Class hydroplane, sends up a vast curtain of spray as it rounds a buoy to win the midget championship event. It was driven by Pat Mudgeway of Hastings.
Founder's Day was held again this year in the Napier Botanical Gardens, to commemorate the founding of the Scout and Guide movement by Lord Baden Powell. Above, the various troops, lead by the standard bearers, assemble in the bowl.

The bi-annual invasion of Napier by the Gisborne Ex Prisoners of War was carried to a successful conclusion recently, with the Gisborne boys carrying away the cricket trophy, which is competed for annually between the two centres. Above, we see invaders arriving in Napier.
After the all important cricket match, a picnic was organised at Eskdale Park under the sign of the crooked cross.
The cricket trophy, above, is a model of a German P.O.W. Compound, showing remarkable detail. It was constructed for the Ex P.O.W.'s Assn. by Mr. Wyn Geenty of Taradale, who was a prisoner of war himself.
The venue for the Open and Local Marching Championships was held for the first time, at Taradale Park earlier this month. A very successful meeting was held with some twenty-two teams competing.
Above is the mass march by all the competing teams.
