CENTRAL HAWKE’S BAY SHOW

Children from Central Hawke’s Bay schools admire examples of school art work on display in a large marquee at the show.

It’s not a real show if there isn’t a ride for the children on the roundabouts and here, enjoying their fun, are Mrs. G. Pene with her two children, Carlos and Henry.

Another Stirling Moss in the making. One-year-old Angus McKinnon gets the feel of the wheel on the merry-go-round.

Whew. . .! “I’d like a ride on that” muses John Vanderberk as he looks up in awe at the gyrating ferris wheel.

There’s a mess brewing here for sure. Mum has taken the initiative, however, with the youngest, and provided handkerchiefs for bibs. The children are Debra, Angela and Michael Baird of Waipukurau.

The large crowd that attended the Central Hawke’s Bay Agricultural and Pastoral Association’s Show, were held spellbound by the high trapeze act of the Retros (recently arrived from England), shown in this picture in the death-defying act of hanging forty feet above the bare ground by their toes and ankles respectively.

The Retros (Peter and Margaret Brasnett) pose for the camera, prior to their aerial act.

Margaret performs a one-leg swinging act on the high trapeze.

One of the most controversial subjects of late was the inclusion in the Central Hawke’s Bay Show of the piano-smashing contest. This has drawn forth many strong protests from the general public, decrying such wilful vandalism. In the above picture, Waipukurau Young Farmers are shown in action a few seconds after the starter’s gun had sounded to speed them on their destructive task. The boys are Bob Upperton (left) and David Stiles.

Page 12

One of the teams lines up equipped with every conceivable breakup instrument. The boys are, from left: Don Sim, David Stiles, Bob Upperton, John Kyle, and David Peterson.

Regardless of the opposition, the crowd on the night was enthralled with the break-up of the pianos, as revealed in the above picture taken during the show.

Page 13

The whole piano had to be so destroyed that it could be passed through this small 6-inch hole in the water tank.

John Kyle stoops down to scoop up handfuls of keyboard to be thrust through the 6-inch hole, while his companion descends with a sledge hammer on the solid frame.

DESIGN FOR DANCING

The Napier Teachers of the Royal Academy of Dancing who recently presented their “Design for Dancing ‘63” at the Municipal Theatre provided a wonderful opportunity for the young talent of the district to show their ability before a most appreciative audience. Such shows encourage both teachers and students to further their efforts in the arts.

CUBS FIELD DAY

Recently, all the cubs from the various Napier packs gathered at Eskdale Park for a combined field day. Above is a formal group of all present.

Seconds after the picture above, the cubs were off to enjoy the many activities laid on for them, such as games, swimming and the building of lairs or shelters.

At lunch time, after instruction on how to light a fire, the boys formed into packs and gathered wood to light their own fires for the interesting job of brewing-up and cooking sausages.

Recently turned into an hotel is Ormlie Lodge, on the Omarunui Boad, Taradale.

HOLTS
for when a man needs more than paint
When a woman gets that gleam in her eye that means a paint brush for you – or else, there’s nothing Holts can do for you except make it as easy as possible. The best paint for the job – for any job – you can get from Holts. Brushes, rollers, thinners, putty, steps, ladders, trestles – all these are at Holts.
But the best help is possibly the expert advice you get from Holt’s friendly, knowledgeable paint experts on the how, why, and wherefore of paints and painting.
Holts recommend these two top DULUX paints for use OUTSIDE
The trend is to Lo-Gloss
DULUX Lo-Gloss is the new acrylic plastic paint that gives your house that quality look – a lovely low-sheen satin finish that wins admiration.
Easiest way ever to paint a house
So easy to use that you can paint an average house in a weekend. Lo-Gloss dries in 20 minutes, second coat can be applied in an hour. Safe to use in damp uncertain weather.
But if you want a gloss finish
then DULUX Hi-Gloss is your weatherboard paint. First introduced by DULUX many years ago Hi-Gloss has been successively improved to an easy-brushing, long-lasting finish that defies sun and weather. Holts have used DULUX Hi-Gloss on many of their buildings and can definitely recommend it.

DON’T HAVE A BLOODY CRASH HERE
VERY LIMITED HOSPITAL FACILITIES
Roaside hoarding in the outbacks of Australia – about the only country in the world where you might see such a sign.

LOOP OF HEAVY CORD
CRANK WINDOW UP TO CLAMP CORD BETWEEN GLASS AND CHANNEL

A hanger hook can be improvised in an instant by catching a knotted loop of heavy cord between the top edge of a rear window and its channel. The loop will hold hangers more securely than the metal hooks used on many cars.

Smooth tyres cause a car to slide on corners and when the road surface is wet. If you intend having a tyre retreaded, then do so at the stage where the centre of the tread is just begining to disappear. By waiting until the tyre wears completely smooth you run the risk of losing the casing. before the retreading process begins the tyre must be buffed and if there is insufficient rubber on the top of the tyre the cords are liable to be damaged and the casing ruined.

“How clean-shaven you feel today, Peter!”

Dear Son,
Forty years ago there were just as many careless drivers around, but the horses had more sense.

ARMY COMMEMORATIVE WINDOWS FOR NEW ST. PAUL’S CATHEDRAL

All serving and ormer members of the New Zealand Army are being offered a chance to contribute towards placing two commemorative stained glass windows in the new St. Paul’s Cathedral in Wellington as a national memorial to the Army and to one of its most distinguished leaders, the late Lord Freyberg.

The appeal which has the support of senior Army officers of both the Regular and Territorial Forces, and of the R.S.A., will be made directly to all Army ex-servicemen’s regimental and corps associations and to Regular and Territorial Force units. A preliminary meeting of Association representatives, including the South African and Gallipoli Veterans Associations has already been held at Army Headquarters, and an immediate response was made towards the contribution of £2400 required for the double windows. Full support was pledged for the scheme.

Because of the national character of the new Cathedral, the Anglican authorities have reserved certain windows for which it is hoped national organisations will provide the stained glass. Three double windows have been set aside in this way and the Royal New Zealand Air Force has already agreed to provide one pair.

The design (shown here), of which the outline has been generally approved by the Bishop of Wellington, the Right Reverend H. W. Baines, shows one window containing as a main theme the New Zealand Coat of Arms supported by the New Zealand Army Crest, and the other window containing Lord Freyberg’s Coat of Arms supported by the badge of the Expeditionary Force. The design will include small-scale reproductions of the badges of corps and units in the Army and of the crests of the ex-Service organisations.

The Chief of the General Staff, Major-General L. W. Thornton said, in announcing the appeal:

“I feel sure that all soldiers, past and present, Regular, Territorial, Expeditionary Force and Home Service, will welcome the opportunity to contribute to this memorial, and that it will also be supported by the general public. It will serve to give expression to the pride which each member feels in the traditions of the Army, now more than a century old. In addition, it will give an opportunity, which many have sought, to pay tribute to the memory of a fine man and a distinguished leader. This will be a national memorial, not only to Lord Freyberg, but to all the men and women who have served in the New Zealand Army throughout our history.”

A special committee including the Chief of the General Staff, the Adjutant-General and the Dominion President of the R.S.A., has been set up to direct the appeal, and to determine the disposal of any over-subscribed funds. These are to be used for other memorial purposes at the discretion of the Committee. Ex-Servicemen’s associations are being appealed to directly but members of the public wishing to make a personal contribution to the Army Memorial Windows Fund are asked to do so directly to Chaplain D. C. G. Cameron, Army Headquarters, Private Bag, Wellington. (Army Information Service, November 13, 1963)

MEASUREMENTS OF ARMY MEMORIAL WINDOWS

Each window will be 25 ft. high and 3 ft. wide. The distance from the floor to the bottom of the windows will be 27 ft. The designer will be Mr. Brian Thomas, of Britain, who has designed the windows for the new St. Paul’s Cathedral, London.
