Things look well for the future of tennis in Hawke‘s Bay with the present interest being taken by youngsters.

Passing through Napier recently, on his way to Australia, was Mr. Gerald Sussman, well known restauranteur and Cavalier de Cuisine. When asked his opinion of Napier restaurants, he explained that, although he had only been able to spend a few days here, he had found one restaurant where the service, presentation and food is well up to overseas standards. Mr Sussman added, however, that the chefs can only work well for an appreciative and demanding public.

Another recent overseas visitor to Napier was Senor Alfredo Alamos of Chile. Senor Alamos, a senior executive of the Chilean dairy industry, who was on a private visit to New Zealand, was photographed viewing private gardens, an aspect of New Zealand which has had much publicity in his native country.
