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 and responsive audience of parents and friends filled the main auditorium of the Wycliffe Intermediate School recently, when pupils displayed what they had accomplished during the year in their manual classes. We show here an attractive shirtwaister in polished cotton, made and modelled by Taula, whilst her sister Irene models a simple cotton frock also made by Taula.

Somewhat different was this confirmation frock made and modelled by Linda.

A shortie nightie and brunch coat, by Patricia.

An attractive polka dot frock, modelled by Janet.

An entry which brought forth high praise was this wool suit, made and modelled by Meryl.

The standard, variety and quality of the work displayed by boys of Wycliffe reflected much credit on the instructors as well as the pupils.


About 350 people of all denominations, participated in carol singing at Farndon Park, Clive, recently. With music by the Salvation Army Band, and technicolour films, the Festive Season in Clive was well under way.

Business has been brisk over the holiday period for the Napier Pacific Surf Club’s men who man the beaches. Not only so, but another responsibility falling on their shoulders is the oversight of the nine trampoline mats on the Marine Parade, profits from which are shared by the two bodies. So popular is the sport that many children and older ones had to queue up for a turn.

Music, which included nursery rhymes and highland tunes, provided vitality and entertainment in the show “Sunny Side Up”, produced recently in Napier, by Moira Richardson. As a spectacle it left very little to be desired, whilst the costumes were practically a show on their own. Here are seen, on stage, some of the large cast from the production.

N.Z. 250cc T.T.

It was a close finish indeed as the two Auckland riders, R. Waterer (No. 68), and the winner Garry Williamson (No. 80), thundered their machines around the Twyford 4.3 mile circuit to fight out the New Zealand 250 cc Tourist Trophy race recently. In the last lap Williamson took the lead and only flashed over the winning line on his works Honda 20 yards ahead of Waterer. Williamson won in 20 min. 47.8 seconds, an average of 61.5 secs for the 21-mile race.

Garry holds the trophy aloft smilingly following the race

Dress was decidedly informal for the crowd as evidenced in these shots as patrons made their way to vantage points (above) or cooled off in the sizzling heat with bottles of pop. Contrast their apparel with the heavily dressed rider.

The annual Bathing Beauty Contest, held during the Mardi Gras celebrations, this year attracted only four entrants, of these, two were from beyond Hawke’s Bay. Where are all the other beautiful Hawke’s Bay girls? Shown above are the entrants and placings. From left: Miss Hawke’s Bay 1965, Marianne Barry (Hastings), Judith Mills (Christchurch), 2nd; Noni Mills (Napier) and Yvonne Fuller (Auckland), third equal.

Part of the large crowd who braved inclement weather to watch the Bathing Beauty Parade, organised by the 30,000 Club, were sadly disappointed to find the evening’s entertainment was at an end after only 15 minutes. It seemed a great pity that additional entertainment could not have been arranged.

Due to a camera failure, we are unable to use any of our photos of the Junior Bathing Beauty Contest held on the Marine Parade, Napier, and we appreciate the help of Batchelors Studios, Napier, in providing us with photographs of some of the groups, which has enabled us to record this popular event.

Two days of brilliant golf attracted large crowds to the second Wattie’s £1500 sponsored golf tournament at the Hastings Golf Club, Bridge Pa, recently.

The first day provided splendid conditions (top) and the gallery is shown coming up to the fourth following Kel Nagle in typical sunny Hawke’s Bay conditions.

Below: The last day of the tournament, the two rounds were played off in downpours of rain and the course was transformed into a spectacle of gaily coloured umbrellas as the galleries followed their star players.
