BEST TOBACCO MONEY CAN BUY
There is a good reason why Rothmans is the World’s largest selling - most wanted King Size Virginia. It’s simply that Rothmans extra length, finer filter and the best tobacco money can buy, give you a cooler, smoother, more satisfying taste. Try them yourself and you’ll agree.

A large crowd witnessed some thrilling races when the Heretaunga Power Boat Club held its annual regatta on the Ngaruroro River, Clive.

Pictured here, is “Alca Zar” from Hamilton, which, unfortunately had some trouble but nevertheless showed tremendous speed.

A great crowd pleaser was “Vega” piloted by R. Mudgway of Hastings.

A search and rescue exercise involving some 60 persons was carried out in the Ruahine Ranges near Wakarara recently. It was initiated by the Heretaunga Tramping Club and was organised to find a reportedly missing deerculler. Many groups of people took part in the exercise including trampers, Police Force personnel, St. John Ambulance, Central Hawke’s Bay Shooters’ Association, Venturer Scouts and members of the Lands and Survey Department. Field director was Mr. A. V. Berry (right) outlining arrangements in the search with Inspector C. J. Bell (left) Napier, and Constable Terry Hamilton-Jenkins.

ATHLETICS UNDER NEW FLOOD LIGHTING

With a crowd of approximately 3500 on hand to witness the switching on of an £18,000 floodlighting system at McLean Park, Napier, the stage was set for a new era of outdoor sport in Hawke’s Bay. To mark the occasion, an athletic meeting with top flight athletes competing, was held. To New Zealand’s Olympic and world record holder, Peter Snell, fell the honour of throwing the switch which put the lights into operation. The Mayor of Napier, Mr. Peter Tait, is at left.

As inevitably as night follows day, Peter Snell wins the mile race in the fastest time ever returned at Mclean Park.

Nevelle Scot comes home a very convincing winner in the three mile event.

There over-enthusiastic fans, by foolishly rushing on to the track and bumping a leading runner at the critical stage of the face, denied Napier of a sub 4-minute mile. Note the position of the offending elbow!
