The annual Bathing Beauty Contest held in the Napier Sound Shell, attracted twenty-six entrants from all parts of New Zealand. Judging was very difficult, and on this page we present the winner and runners-up. On the following pages are some of the very attractive entrants.

Maxine Kitt, who gained second place.

Eighteen-year-old Janet Matthews, a student teacher, was placed first.

Third placing went to Valerie Flanders. Both girls are sixteen years old and come from Hastings.

Jocelyn McIvor, who was a very close runner-up.

When Dig Richards, the Australian pop singer, arrived at the Napier Airport recently, he found a large crowd there waiting to greet him.

Dig, seen here with Des Gibson, Miss Hawke‘s Bay (centre), and Misses Valerie Flanders (left) and Maxine Kitt (right).

Definitely Dig Richards fans.

Mr. and Mrs. Matthews of Napier, very kindly made their lounge available, thus enabling Dig to get in some rehearsals with a local band.

An Unusual Sight. Mr. Tuck’s yacht leaving the Napier Harbour. We don’t know her present name because when the picture was taken she had just been repainted.

New traffic lines recently painted at Kennedy Road, Georges Drive intersection, found the heat a bit too much and started to “move off”.

During the holidays the Hastings Skating Club‘s Rink proved a great draw to locals and visitors alike. The picture above was taken from the control tower. We even noticed three St Trinians old girls tearing around .

Kristina Siberson, a young visitor from the Hutt, getting around quite well on borrowed skates.

Every night exhibitions were given by various club members and here we see a dance pairs solo by Kay and Raymond Hayes of Hastings.

Page 12


This year the Hastings St. Johns Christmas Party was a little different, because instead of Santa Claus, they were visited by a Fairy Queen, in the person of Miss Helena Hannah.

The children were delighted with the Fairy Dance performed by Fairy Gillian Brodie.

Above we see the Queen surrounded by her Fairies.

The Fairy Queen distributed the presents and here, Ambulance Driver Gary Mulvanah, receives one on behalf of his infant daughter, Sharon.

The residents of the Little Sisters of the Poor Home for aged, really enjoy a Christmas Party.

Children of the Seventh Day Adventist Church thoroughly enjoyed a visit from Santa.

Hospital Laundry Party

Every year about Christmas, the Supervisor of the Napier Hospital Laundry organises a party for the staff which is always a great success.

Members of the staff dressed in costume and each representing a section of the department. Left to right: Fay McGregor (Laundry), Joy McKay (Sewing room), Dulcie Hannah (Bedrooms), Lita Rawlings (Dining room), and Olive Cunningham (Bathroom).

Santa Visits Taradale

Santa arrives in Taradale complete with Sleigh, Fairies and of course Bambi.

An official welcome by the Mayor, Mr. A. W. Miller.

He then proceeded to his cave and met two rather apprehensive kiddies with their special requests for Christmas Day. We hope that their wishes were granted.

Page 17


At a recent sand castle competition conducted by the Waimarama Surf Club, the kids really enjoyed themselves, digging up the beach and getting something for it (all competitors received a prize) not just being told to go and dig in the sand while Mum and Dad have a laze or go for a swim. In the picture above we see all the busy builders at work, surrounded by the Mums and Dads.

Peter Hebden consults Grant May on the quality of the building materials.

Brian and Peter Walford seem to be enjoying themselves.

The ten-mile road race held by the Napier Skating Club proved to be more of an endurance test than a speed race, when quite early in the event nearly half the competitors had dropped out. The picture above shows the field during the first lap.

Peter Oliver (Hastings) leads Basil Galway (Petone) around a marker barrel. Basil (the winner) and Peter held the lead between them for almost the full race and drew steadily away from the rest of the field.

Basil Galway puts on a sprint to win the five mile trophy.

Saint David’s Presbyterian Church on the move down Nelson Crescent. The church was being transferred to a new site in Georges Drive and arrived quite safely but not without some difficulty, all power lines had to be disconnected on the way as the church was too high to pass beneath them.

The interior of the Bank of New Zealand was a very pleasing sight for the customers. The bank had been “dressed out” for the festive season.

Dogs Show Their Paces

While entrants were being judged in the Napier Kennel Club’s annual Ribbon Parade, club members gave obedience demonstrations with their dogs, where the dogs make certain movements and obey various commands without being influenced by any other dog or person.

Miss M. Bryne of Napier with her Whippet which was judged the best dog on parade.

Miss L. Fowden of Meeanee with her Besenji Ko-Hi-Nor of Clendon, which was 1st in the mid-puppy stakes. An unusual breed the Basenji doesn’t bark but yodels.

Page 21

Three Terriers rather forlornly await to enter the ring. We wonder what a dog thinks of all this business (not much, if canine expressions are any guide).

Miska seems to be grinning happily, maybe because she wasn’t waiting to be judged.


A night view of the Octopus taken at the Mardi Gras. This popular riding device provided many thrills and – perhaps – a few upset stomachs.

A fitting conclusion to the first part of the success story of local girl, Nyree Dawn Porter, was when, recently the World Premiere of her first full length feature film was held in her home town of Napier. Photo News would like to join with the people of Hawke’s Bay, in wishing her every success in her future work.

The parade as it nears the theatre in Emerson Street. This parade was watched by some 400 people.

Waimarama Surf Carnival

The carnival held by the Waimarama Surf Club on New Year’s Day proved to be most popular and enjoyable for the crowd of almost 2,000 people who attended. The three teams competing were, Waimarama, Wellington and Maraenui Ladies, also from Weliington. The usual events were competed for with great skill and no small amount of humour.

The four-man teams in action, surrounded by the large crowd.

The girls bringing their victim ashore. We say victim because of something that happened out in the surf, thus enabling the girls to bag a male and vice versa.

Page 25

The start of the open surf race (above) and the winner (right) known locally as Bikini Bill Penney. This must have been quite a feat in itself because unencumbered as he was he must have had some difficulty staying intact.

During the afternoon a demonstration of the mechanical resuscitator was given by Peter Hannah and Greg Gordon.

To conclude the carnival the surfboat put to sea and is seen here in a cloud of spray.

Thirty-one years ago this month a catastrophe struck the province of Hawke’s Bay which has seen no parallel since and we hope, never will. As a generation has grown up since February 1931, it is perhaps an opportune time to publish again some of the pictures taken on that fateful day and the weeks following. We do not wish to dwell over long with words, as the pictures speak for themselves, but it is enough to say that thousands of us would not be living in Napier today, but for the quake. The town as it was could not expand any more.

Model Railway Opened

The model railway, which was officially opened at Westshore recently, will, we feel sure, be a great asset to the attractions of the beach. There is no doubt that it will keep the small fry well occupied.

The Mayoress of Naper, Mrs. P. Tait, cuts the ribbon to officially open the railway and set the first train rolling.

The 9th and last N.Z. Grand Prix to be held at Ardmore was run under atrocious conditions, possibly the worst that a Grand Prix could be run under. We present here a selection of pictures taken for us by Marshal McDonagh.

The first day of the Napier Sailing Club’s New Year Regatta opened in fretful weather. Gusty winds and short seas made conditions anything but comfortable. The pictures on this and the following page were taken on the first day.

A crowd numbering around 8000, gathered on the Napier Marine Parade, to farewell 1961 and joyously welcome 1962. The couple below celebrated with gusto.

With the traditional ringing of the Veronica Bell, the Mayor, Mr. P. Tait, rang out the old year and then the Mayoress, Mrs. Tait, welcomed the New Year.

The stronger lager
Double L
Here’s the new brew that satisfies the knowledgeable man’s quest for a really fine strong lager – Leopard Double ‘L’. In pint bottles, it’s ideal for the odd spot before dinner, elegant enough to serve the most fastidious guests, tasty enough to order more after the first sip.
