OUR COVER PICTURES
Front Cover. Our cover picture this month is lovely young Elaine Miscall, “Miss New‘ Zealand 1963". Elaine, who hails from Wellington, is a very successful model, and was in Napier recently (see inside) fulfilling a modelling engagement. She is to represent New Zealand in the forthcoming Miss World, and Miss International Contests, events we wish her every success in.
Back Cover. Brother and sister Tommy and Violet Tipu, Whakatu, symbolise the spirit of the Maori, during this great occasion of the opening of the Waipatu Centennial Hall.
ON THE BEACH
"The “John A. Setree“, which came ashore at the Beacons due to an error in navigation.
Mr. Bob Gunson, a Napier fisherman, braved the icy waters to retrieve a line sent ashore from the “Pania” by rocket gun. The projectile, with line attached, fell into the surf short of the trawler and Mr. Gunson swam out to bring it in.
The saga of the “John A. Setree", the Napier fishing trawler which ran ashore near the Beacons, is told in this series of pictures.
Many willing hands responded to the task of hauling in a heavy tow wire which was fastened to the beached trawler from the “Pania”.
The stranded vessel was taking quite a battering as high tide came. Waves continually broke over the trawler, embedding it firmer into the shingle.
A high wave crashes onto the trawler and bulldozer attempting to push the nose round to deeper water.
Nearly aﬂoat. A large bulldozer which was hired from the contractors on the Hawke's Bay Airport work prepares to give a final shove.
Freedom restored, the “John A. Setree" is towed to deeper water and safety by the “Pania” (obscured behind mast).

WAIPATU MARAE CEREMONY
Some 800 people, both Maori and pakeha, crowded the Waipatu Marae recently for the official opening and dedication of the new Centennial Hall by the Minister of Maori Affairs, Mr. Hanan. Visitors arrived from many parts of the North Island to take part in the festivities. Mr. Hanan is pictured above, with the Minister of Southern Maori, Sir Eruera Tirikatene (left) and at right, the Bishop of Aotea Roa, Bishop Panapa, who conducted the dedication service. Mr. Hanan received a rousing challenge from Mr. Sam Paenga in customary Maori style.
Maori visitors from Porangahau make their way onto the Waipatu Marae for the dedication.
Action songs, hakas and other items were presented during the two and a half hour ceremony.
Gaily bedecked and tattooed Maori maidens and warriors add a note of colour to the occasion. From left, are Peni Winiata, Don Hika and Violet Tipu of Whakatu.
Mr. Hanan made his way onto the marae to the strains of a brass band playing an English hymn. The bandsmen were members of the Morehu Silver Band, all Maori.
Visitors from Moteo Marae arrive at Waipatu for the celebrations.

INTER - SCHOOL SPORTS
Held recently at Bledisloe School, Taradale, was a basketball and seven-a-side rugby contest between eighteen schools from surrounding districts. The teams in both sports were competing for the McTagget Cups. The contest, which was organised by Bledisloe School, proved to be both popular and instructive, as games were fought out and trophies presented all in the one day. Bledisloe won both Cups.
The rugby ﬁnal was fought between Taradale and Bledisloe. Picture shows Kilt Brooks, Bledisloe, breaking away from the pack which is lead by Neal McCalmont of Taradale.
A scene from the basketball ﬁnal between Greenmeadows and Bledisloe. The players are, from left: Denise Santo (Greenmeadows), Pat Grey (Bledisloe), Anna Hape, Cheryl Fuller, Beverly Tristrim, and Louana Hakiwai.
We would like to congratulate the Christian Family Movement for its enterprise in the promoting of the recent Vocational Guidance symposium in Hastings, also all the commercial ﬁrms without whose help this project would not have been possible. We show on these pages some of the many vocations, etc. open to the youth of the province.
Boys were particularly interested in the motor trades exhibit. Such exhibits as this do help children to decide on their future.
The vocation of dental nursing created great interest among many of the girls.
Miss Joan Connolly also showed great interest in the motor trades exhibit.
Jane Molloy doesn't seem to think much of the business end of the syringe held by Mariette Caciopoli - then who does. A small incident recorded on the general nursing stand.

Michael Field demonstrates a protracter to his friend Clive Beachan, at the Architecture display.
Girls in particular certainly found much to interest them in the many displays depicting work of the Church.
Two very fine displays that found a lot of interest among the boys was the Police and Farming.

Trying to attract the attention of a dog trapped in a stormwater drain, are Ian Hickey, Janet Rawclifle and Loween Hickey. The dog had become trapped in the drain at the corner of Taradale Road and Riverbend Road. A hurried call to the City Council Works Dept. brought men armed with crowbars to release the animal. Below we see Mr. R. Munro, who has just hauled the dog from the drain.
An area very badly hit in the recent ﬂoods was the Tangoio Beach in the vicinity of the boat sheds. Above can be seen two of the sheds almost completely buried.
One shed on top of another. Two boats can be seen inside.
Due to the pressure of mud entering the rear of some of the sheds, many small boats were forced out to sea. In the picture can be seen three which took many hours to ﬁnd and retrieve.

NTH. ISLAND BASKETBALL TOURNEY
A moment of indecision as R. Gray, Hawke's Bay, appears undecided as to which way to pass the ball, an incident during the North Island Championships held in Napier recently. Hawke‘s Bay were playing Hamilton at the time.
Graham Sanderson makes a desperate bid for goal and is tackled unsuccessfully by his Hamilton opponent.
Once a year the Hastings Jaycettes (wives of Hastings Jaycees) let their hair down and entertain their men folk to an evening which, to say the least, is full of surprises for the mere males. The evening, this year, was held at the Windsor Lodge and started with the girls doing the Charleston.
Barbara Jones, the pianist.
Two flappers of the '20's go through their routine. They are Margaret Donovan (right) and Dorothy Fenton (left).
The men were then invited to show their skill as designers of women's head furniture, and soon weird and wonderful creations were the result.
It looks as if Martin Conway has been having too many boiled eggs for breakfast. His model is Mrs. Jenny Anderson.
Bob Fenton could be building something assisted by Zita Aitchison, who is holding the nails.
To round this off, a skit on that grand female game of bargain hunting at a sale, with the girls really going to town, and if it wasn‘t long before the dress model (played by Dorothy Fenton) was reduced to bare essentials by the enthusiastic bargain hunters. At this point there was a power failure.

THE ART OF MAKE-UP
The art of make-up, under the direction of Miss Dawn Olesen of the Academy of Elegance, is not to make up, but to make down. In other words, to use make-up solely as an aid to enhance the beauty of the face, not to apply a mask of heavy make-up where one is not required.
Miss Joy MacIntyre applies mascara under the direction of Miss Olesen.
Miss Carol Robb experiments with the Oriental look.
Girls apply cleansing cream while Miss Olesen demonstrates.

With this issue “Photo News” introduces a new and valuable “Motorists' Page" for the benefit of our motoring readers. Giving you the tips on maintenance, safety first, and trafﬁc law, each month will be "Robbie" Robinson, already well known in this field through his Saturday morning ZZC “Motoring With Robbie“ session.
Robbie will be only too pleased to answer, through this column, any questions on this subject that are put to him. Simply write down your particular problem and post to Mr. P. Robinson, H.B. Photo News, PO. Box 169, Napier.
- Take a Tip from ROBBIE
Exhaust gases tend to swirl forward into a stationwagon when it is driven with the rear doors open. If you must travel with the doors open always remember to open all the windows to allow the gas to escape.
Identifying an Oil Leak
To locate an oil leak pull the dipsticks from the engine and the gear box and allow a drop from each to fall on a white blotter. Hold the blotter under the car to catch a drop of leaking oil, then compare the colour and texture for identification.
Next time you replace the windscreen wiper hose, don't use plastic tubing. The suction causes the plastic to collapse resulting in sluggish operation of the wiper.
Robbie says . . .
Never drive with your elbow protruding out of the window. Should the car be involved in an accident and roll, or be “sideswiped” by another vehicle there is every chance of losing your arm.
The annual dinner and dance of the Hawke's Bay Deer Stalkers’ Association held this year in the Centennial Hall, Napier, proved its usual success, with members and friends travelling from many parts of the province to attend.

THE BIG LIFT
An operation which attracted quite a lot of attention last month was the transporting of an outsize 7-ton, 30-ft. high steel screening-plant tower from the factory of Wiig Bros. & Whyte, constructors of the tower, to the Waiohiki Shingle Company's works at Taradale where the two cranes, winches, and various other lifting equipment units of John Fraser & Sons, Hastings, were brought into operation for the ticklish business at lifting the tower on to a 25-ft. high concrete hopper.
Normally this job would have all been done on the site, but the building contractors (Wiig Bros. & Whyte, Onekawa) saved considerable costs by first building the concrete hopper on the site, then fabricating the tower in their Onekawa factory.
Finding a crane which had sufficient lift proved to be the biggest drawback to this idea, but the Hastings firm of John Fraser & Sons undertook to get the tower up into position even though their crane was not quite high enough. They overcame this problem by lifting the tower in a horizontal position to the top of the concrete hopper, securing one side of the base on a pivot, then swinging the tower up and over by means of winches and a purchasing pole erected alongside the base.
An outsize load in any man's language. Here, the tower, loaded on Fraser's transporter is awaiting a Transport Department pilot before moving off from Wiig Bros. and Whyte's factory on the journey to Waiohiki.
The big moment. The tower is at a point of balance and is about to swing into position. This was the crucial point in the operation, for had the tower not fallen exactly into position anything could have happened.
A WOMAN OF NO IMPORTANCE
Interesting costumes and decor were highlights of the Napier Repertory Players‘ major production staged in Napier's Municipal Theatre recently. It is some years since an elegant costume play was presented by this Society, and their choice of Oscar Wilde's "A Woman of No Importance“, is signiﬁcant in the fact that no record can be found of any previous presentation of this play by a New Zealand amateur society.
Successfully revived in London during the Coronation Season, this highly artificial comedy-drama of English “Society life” in the “Gay 'Nineties” demands delicate handling in every facet of its production, and the cast of sixteen Napier actors and actresses brought the play to life with credit to their society.
The eminent Stage designer, Raymond Boyce, visited Napier under the auspices of the New Zealand Drama Council to consult and assist in the matter of set design and decor, the realisation of which was handled by Gwyn Ace. The production was by Ursula Calson.
Lady Hunstanton (Patricia Cumming): “I am sorry Mrs. Daubeny could not come. Headache as usual, I suppose?”
Achdeacon Daubeny (Trevor Cardo): "Yes, Lady Hunstanton, but she is happiest alone - happiest alone."
Lord Illingsworlh (Don Anderson): “The book of life begins with a man and a woman in a Garden.”
Mrs. Allonby (Ivy Winterbottom): “It ends with revelations.”
Lady Caroline (Ruth Calson): “John, it is time for you to retire."
Sir John (Harold Rees): “I am not tired, Caroline, I assure you.”
