KEEN COMPETITION IN CADET ELIMINATIONS
HASTINGS BOYS WIN AT HOMETOWN
Having won by a margin of 100 points gained in the Team Test, the senior team from the Hastings division will represent Hawke’s Bay-East Coast District in the Dominion Cadet Competitions in August.
At Wellington, the venue for these competitions, we hope our boys will come through with ﬂying colours and return to H.B. as New Zealand champions.
The examiners, Drs. Reeve and Barnett and Commissioner Barden and District Superintendent, Mr. Snadden, stated there was room for improvement in the work of the three teams that entered. It was evident, they said, that teams are slow in finding other injuries and in many cases, their resuscitation was lacking while more marks could be gained in the individual tests.
Points gained in the Contest were;
Hastings seniors, 363 1st
Hastings juniors, 263 2nd
Waipukurau, 262½ 3rd.
The fake injuries were made up by District Ofﬁcer of Cadets, Mr H. Taylor who also donated the afternoon tea.
Best of luck boys, we are proud to have you as our representatives.
NAPIER GIRLS ARE ALSO SUCCESSFUL
As winners of the Nursing Cadet Elimination Competition on 20th July, Napier Team will represent this district at the National Cadet Championships to be held at Wellington on the 30th and 31st of August.
Competitions between Hawke’s Bay-East Coast Divisions were held the same day.
The judges, Drs. H. Barnett and A. Fitzgerald Sisters H.M. Wilson E.M. Gardiner, H. Mayo, Mr. Johnstone, and District Ofﬁcers, Mrs. N. Hendry, and Mr. L. Jarvis, were reported to have been pleased with the results of the contests.
In the evening, a social was held and all who went seemed to have enjoyed themselves.

Elimination contest: Napier 1, Hastings 2.
De Costa Cup (ﬁrst aid): Hastings 1, Napier B 2, Waipawa 3.
