Hawke’s Bay All Black W. L. (Bill) Davis pictured at the Hawke’s Bay airport during his official welcome home recently. He is shown in conversation with Mr. Brian Mahoney, while a smiling Mr. Bramwell (chairman of the H.B. Rugby Football Union), left, awaits his turn to convey best wishes.

There to meet him was his fiancee Miss Barbara Hooper, a nurse at the Hastings Memorlal Hospital.

ROYAL NAVY GYMNASTS

The Royal Navy gymnastic squad (above) gave many polished displays of their ability when they visited the province recently, particularly to high school groups. The members of the troop are, back row from left: Able Seaman N. Hutchison, Leading Seaman D. Hooper, Petty Officer J. P. Allan. In the front row are: Petty Officer L. Bergersen, Petty Officer J. McLead, and Leading Seaman A. C. Bartlett.

The team are pictured limbering up on the high horse apparatus. They utilise most of the modern equipment seen in gymnasiums today.


Page 6

In this high-vaulting act, Petty Officer Johnston would appear to qualify for a position with the American's space programme instead of Her Majesty's Royal New Zealand Navy.

One of the highlights of their programme is this stunt act, in which a female impersonator, Able Seaman N. Hutchison, takes to the trampoline and gives an exhilarating performance of leaps and landings. One such landing being into the waiting arms of Leading Seaman Hooper.


Page 7

If you want a flat top hairstyle, try this out sometime. The team spaced at suitable distances looked fearsome in this cutlass swinging act. In the front of the picture is the leader of the gym troop, Lieutenant L. T. McGee.

What goes up must come down - and being assisted down by Leading Seaman Hooper is Petty Officer Lamb, off the baby trampoline. These two at right are playing tanks. It's really an Army exercise but I daresay the Navy can improve by using it.

NEW ZEALAND v CENTRAL DISTRICTS

New Zealand's cricket eleven had a workout at Napier in readiness for their matches against South Africa, when they played Central Districts recently. Some of the team are shown on the boundary at McLean Park watching play in progress. Top right: John Reid in fighting mood, slogging one of his sixes into the stand. Below: Tailender Motz sends the ball scurrying to the boundary for 4 runs. Motz added a healthy 38 to the New Zealand total.

Pack aboard cool, canned, lager beer by Leopard. Light, disposable, guaranteed cans are so easy to punch and pour.
This Leopard’s got a tastier tang. ‘Spot-on’ for summer, Leopard keeps extra cool, sparkling to sip. And new stackable, packable Leopard cans can’t break in transit. Keep a Leopard ‘spot’ in the fridge - it likes being cool.
There’s a Leopard carton for every summer occasion.

SCOUTS & GUIDES BIRTHDAY

Nearly 300 Scouts, Guides, Cubs, and Brownies, gathered at Eskdale Park recently to commemorate the birthday of the founders of the Scouting and Guiding movements, Lord and Lady Baden-Powell. Parents and friends came to see the activities of all the groups, which culminated in a memorial service. Shown here is part of the large number taking part in the day’s events.

Collecting mail from his letter box in Napier recently is Mr. Percy Bear, who celebrated his 90th birthday on the 13th March. Mr. Bear, who came to Napier in 1876, has many vivid memories of the city which his alert mind can recall easily. He still is very active, playing the occasional game of bowls, and living in May Avenue, walks up and down off Napier Hill to the city most days. To mark his birthday as one of the oldest living residents the Napier City Council is to perpetuate his name by naming a street in the Onekawa area after him.

Winners of the N.Z. Junior Dance Pairs at the N.Z. Skating Championships held at Hamilton recently, are Kaye Cameron and Billy Heap. Kaye is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. P. Cameron, Napier, and Billy is the son of Mr. and Mrs. J. Heap, Napier.

THE MAORI ENTERTAINS

One of the most famous of all Maori concert parties will shortly be touring New Zealand after their appearance at the Adelaide Festival in Australia. This outstanding party of 20 hand picked performers was especially selected to appear at the Festival, which is recognised as one of the biggest anywhere in the world. Led by Guide Kiri of Rotorua, the party has been trained by Mr. Sam Mitchell, who has directed many combined parties on many outstanding occasions, amongst those being the reception to their Majesties Queen Elizabeth II, and the Duke of Edinburgh, and the King and Queen of Thailand, and who was to present this current party before the Queen Mother at Rotorua if she had made this trip to New Zealand. Mr. Mitchell is a Maori welfare officer, and his love for Maori traditions is deep and everlasting. During this tour there will be presented many action songs, and poi dances that have not been seen for many years. Amongst the many personalities in the party are Maureen Kingi, Miss New Zealand 1962, who will be featured in a solo spot during the performance, and Mrs. Kahu Morrison and her four daughters, famous mother and sisters of Howard Morrison. The party will be in Napier, Hastings, and Waipukurau on the 10th, 11th, and 13th of this month.

OHAKEA AIR SHOW

"Threading the Needle", a very tricky cross over manoeuvre performed by Harvards of the Central Flying School. This team gave an excellent display of formation aerobatics.

Before an audience of over 100,000 people, many thousands of them from Hawke’s Bay, the Royal New Zealand Air Force threw open its doors at Ohakea and staged one of the finest air and static displays ever seen in this country. Assisted by the Air Forces of five nations, the flying display left the huge crowd gasping with delight. The static display showed very fully the work of the ground staff of a modern and compact Air Force. Without any doubt, Air Force Day 1964 was an exciting and satisfying day’s outing for the huge crowd, and a word of praise to the Traffic Department for the first class control of traffic, which left nothing to be desired.

A close pass by two Victors.

A magnificent "Prince of Wales Feathers" executed by the R.N.Z.A.F. Jetobatic team provided a thrilling finish to the show - the team also provided the same wonderful display at the Hawke's Bay Air Show.

Members of the public had free access to all the aircraft on display, a gesture which was greatly appreciated by all.

Even with the short takeoff of this Hercules C.130, there are times when a little extra push is required. This Hercules appeared to just leap off the ground with the assistance of eight J.A.T.O. bottles. This aircraft is of great interest to the people of New Zealand as our own transport squadron is being re-equipped with this very versatile aircraft.

Possibly the largest piston engined aircraft in regular service in the world today is the Douglas Globemaster. This aircraft has a top speed of 304 m.p.h. and a payload of 40 tons.


Page 30

In formation. A tricky manoeuvre with aircraft of such power and weight.

The United States Air Force Thunder Chief F.105, being the fastest aircraft on display, created a lot of interest. It is an all-weather single seat strike fighter, with a maximum speed of 1420 m.p.h. at 36,000 feet.

This is the engine of the Thunder Chief. It is a Pratt and Whitney turbojet developing 26,500 lb static thrust with afterburner.

THE ONE DAY OF THE YEAR

This month, Photo News called in on the Napier Repertory cast rehearsing for the Australian play “The One Day of the Year”, which is to be presented in the Little Theatre, McGrath Street, from April 4th to 11th.

The play, produced by David Monrad, deals with Anzac Day and the differing opinions on its meaning; with the age-old struggle between the generations complicated by the problems of a boy whose university education has made a gulf between himself and his working-class parents.

“Look? There’s Alf!” Wacka, no longer able to attend the Dawn Service, is at least able to watch his friends marching in the parade. Wacka (Walter Gollner), Mum (Renee Taylor), Hughie (Terry Coyle), and Jan (Joan Titter).

“I don’t want it!” Mum thinks beer-drinking gets out of hand around Anzac Day. Alf (Brian Howlett), Wacka and Mum.


Page 33

Wacka, the man who was there, talks about Gallipoli. Mum and Wacka.

“Hello . . Didn’t know you was home . . . ” Mum surprises Hughie and Jan. Hughie finds that one of the difficulties of working class life is the lack of privacy. Hughie (Terry Coyle), Mum and Jan (Joan Titter).

“Drunk or sober, you’re not funny... You disgust me...!” The tension between father and son reaches a climax when Alf comes home drunk after celebrating his “One Day of the Year."

It is many years since tennis fans of Hawke’s Bay have had the privilege of seeing some of the world’s top tennis players in action. This omission was remedied recently at the Centennial Hall in Napier, when Lew Hoad, Ken Rosewall, Rod Laver and Mal Anderson, all of Australia, treated 1200 enthusiasts to over four hours of scintillating, sparkling tennis.

EBBETT PARK SCHOOL BATHS OPENED

The culmination of years of steady work and planning was realised recently when the Ebbett Park School, Hastings, officially opened its new learners’ pool. Mr. J. Seton, a City Councillor is pictured speaking during the opening ceremony which was attended by some two hundred odd people. The new pool is 52 feet long and the facilities include spacious changing rooms and a filtration plant. Below: Mr. E. W. Ormond (right), a Hawke’s Bay Education, Board member, and Mr. J. Murphy (chairman of Home and School Committee), prepare to cut the ribbon as they declare the baths open. Pupils wait to swim the first length after the opening.


Page 37

A fine feature of the opening of the new pool was the impressive exhibition of underwater swimming by two members of the Hastings Underwater Club, Messrs. Bruce Hesketh (left) and Bob Quinn, pictured as they prepare their equipment.

The rest of the day was taken up with the school's swimming sports. Some of the tiny tots are shown in the event where they swim one width holding a floating ball. They are, from left to right, Debbie Bignell, Faye Griffiths, Sharon Siviter and Karen Orange.

MANSE DEDICATION

Dedicated recently was the new Manse of St. Peter's Presbyterian Church, Napier. Pictured above are the Ministers and congregation attending the service outside the new Manse.

Mr. Duncan White, an Elder of the Church, hands the keys to the Rev. J. Sands, who performed the dedication ceremony. Watching is the Minister of St. Peter's, the Rev. A. I. Hewson.

N.Z. ATHLETIC CHAMPIONSHIPS

A round-up of some of the stars of the New Zealand Athletic Championships at Napier. Norman Read (centre), winner of the 50,000 metres road walk, with second place-getter M. Hinton, Auckland (left) and F. Eustace, West Coast, who filled third place.

A smiling Peter Snell at the end of his 880 yards win with second place-getter Graeme Morris, Canterbury (left), and Wellington runner P. Kummer, third.

Marise Chamberlain, who completed her double at the championships, is flanked by M. Samson, Auckland (left), who took second place and team mate V. Robertson, Auckland, who finished third in the women’s 880 yards event final.


Page 41

With eyes glued on the finishing line, three hurdlers make a striking photograph in the 120 yards event, which was won by L. Aikman (black singlet) from Waikato in 14.4 seconds.

Avis McIntosh, Auckland, in fine fettle, easily won the women's 80 metres hurdles event, her time being 11.1 seconds. Second place was filled by Mrs. J. Heeps, Wellington (right).


Page 42

One of the finest performances in the field events was Dave Norris’s triple jump of 52ft. 5½ins., which qualifies him for the Tokyo Olympic Games. Norris, who hails from Auckland, is shown at top left in his record jump.

At top right is Valerie Young (nee Sloper), winner of the women’s shot put with a throw of 50ft. 3½ins. Bottom left: The closest race of the meeting was the final of the men’s 100 yards, which was won by D. Mackenzie, Canterbury, in 9.6 seconds, but the slight wind assisting the runners ruled out any chance of a record. Mackenzie also won the 220 men’s final.


Page 43

New Zealand glamour athlete, Miss Doreen Porter of Auckland, broke the resident record for the 220 yards event at the National Athletic Championships in Napier recently. She also won the final of the 100 yards in a time of 10.7 seconds.

With no effort at all, Miss Marise Chamberlain, Canterbury is pictured striding home an easy winner in the women's 880 yards event.


Page 44

Waikato athlete John Davies, who, with Peter Snell, is one of New Zealand's obvious choices for the next Olympic Games, has a kind word for a young autograph hunter at the end of his mile win.

When he pulled a hamstring muscle during the running of the final of the 220 yards event, West Coast runner Brian Seymour had to be assisted off the field by St. John Ambulance men.


Page 45

At the end of the first lap in the mens 880 yards, Peter Snell, Auckland (extreme right), leads the field, closely followed by fellow Aucklander R. Hamilton (No. 9). Snell went away to win, but only after a close run home against Canterbury runner Graeme Morris (No. 256), who finished second.

Bill Baillie, Auckland (No. 14), who won the six mile event, casts a weather-eye on C. McDonnell, Canterbury (No. 264) and the rest of the field as they pack together early in the race. Baillie and fellow Aucklander Barry Magee (No. 16) drew away from the field and made a race of it to the last of the 24 thrilling circuits of the track.

Members of the Hawke's Bay-Poverty Bay Junior Swimming team are shown on the return from the Caltex Sponsored Swimming competition held in Wellington recently.

Star diver from Napier's Pacific Swimming Club, Gaye Morley, gained the rare distinction of claiming both the Junior and Senior Women's diving titles at the recently held National Swimming Championships at Blenheim.

Pictured above are Susan Cowan, winner of the 10 year old backstroke and freestyle, and Sandra Whittleston, winner of the 12 year old backstroke. Both from Napier's Pacific Swimming Club, these girls excelled at the Caltex competitions.

H.B. KENNEL ASSOCIATION SHOW

"Well, I suppose I'm safe in your company", said the toy Poodle as he nestled close into the side of the docile white Samoyed. This charming study was taken at the Hawke's Bay Kennel Association's Show at Tomoana Showgrounds recently.

What a lovely fur coat he would make. And, incidentally, he's got a name to match his beauty - it's Beau Brummell of Rydalmount, held by his owner, Mrs. K. O'Connor, Auckland.

Sherry Pie is the name of young Robin McIntosh's Alsatian. Robyn, who hails from Kereru, was waiting his turn in the judging ring.


Page 49

Luckie, a white Maltese, being brushed down for another appearance in the ring, certainly lived up to his name. He took first place in the Maltese breed, and first of breed at the Show. He is being groomed by his charming owner, Miss Jackie Berrigan, Napier.

Chippy the poodle is the centre of attraction of this young trio. Groomed immaculately, Chippy is held by her owner Jenny Ross (centre) of Napier, while Christine Ross (left) and Gaynor Saxton (right) look on admiringly.

ODD SHOTS

Recently an unusual machine came to Napier for the purpose of making many hundreds of feet of tubing for two Napier companies. The machine, which is Swedish and the only one of its kind in New Zealand, can fashion tubing of any diameter from 3 inch to 32 inch, from flat 3 inch strip steel. It has a capacity of 2140 feet per hour in 3 inch diameter tube.

A car was wrecked on the Farndon Highway near the overbridge recently. Two young people were seriously injured. The owner of the car, Mr. Wolfe of Napier, stands surveying the tangled remains.

MOTORISTS -
- Take a Tip from ROBBIE

The importance of wheel balancing cannot be over stressed and few people realise that by mounting a wheel and tyre on a "rig" as illustrated here, they can find the heavy spots on the wheel. Just place the balancing weight in such a position so that the wheel will hang parallel to the horizontal portion of the rig. Be sure to have the lower portion of the rig perfectly flat and check with a spirit level.

How to Park in a Confined Space
1. Pull alongside and parallel with the car you wish to park behind.
2. Begin to back slowly. When you have gone about 2 ft., turn your wheels to the left on full lock.
3. When your front bumper will just clear the rear bumper of the car ahead turn your wheels to the right on full lock.
4. Straighten the wheels then move forward into the current parking position.
IN PARKING DON'T ENDANGER OTHERS

Here’s a handy spot to keep your tyre changeover plan.

Hydraulic brake fluid must only be used for replenishing the brake master cylinder. This is a Morris Oxford.

Hard starting and poor idling are often caused by dirty or incorrectly gapped plugs. Use a feeler gauge as shown to check the gap at frequent intervals, resetting it to manufacturer’s specifications.When resetting, don't bend the centre electrode. For top performance and economy renew plugs every 10,000 miles.
