BEST TOBACCO MONEY CAN BUY
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.
ROTHMANS KING SIZE REALLY SATISFIES

WOULD YOU BELIEVE???

That here stands a professional stunt pilot, a champ many times over? No? well how about a top dressing pilot, you know the best in the bay? Mmmmm, No again How about the Editor-Photographer of the H.B. Photo News just taking a breath of fresh air and a few pics? Feasible, perhaps. Really though, the guy leaning nonchalantly against this pre-war built Tiger Moth, which has a Gypsy Major engine of England, made under license by G.M. Holden, Melbourne, Australia, in his jazzy flying gear is our Ed-Photographer, Bruce MacConnell – looks the part doesn’t he.

OUR COVER

Seventeen-year-old Cheryl Laurent, a bookkeeping machinist in the Napier City Council Office. Cheryl has just won the “Miss Pacific Roller Skating Queen” title, from 25 entries, 10 of whom were Australians. This title is not judged on roller skating, but more on a personality basis. One must have poise, personality, delivery of speech, and naturally, an attractive face – all of which Cheryl has. Besides skating, Cheryl’s hobbies are swing, tennis and basketball.

BACK COVER:

A recent visit by one of N.Z.’s top pop groups caused a sensation in H.B. and especially at the Top Hat, Napier, when the doors opened for the usual Saturday night dance – there was a crowd of 800 waiting outside. Who were these popular males? Yes the “La-De-Da’s” who hit the charts with their “How’s the Air Up There”. The group formed in the Christmas of 1965. The boys are: Brett Neilson, Phil Key, Trevor Wilson, Bruce Howard, and Kevin Borich.

LIFE MEMBER

Mr W.M. Bishop, an Aussie-born “Kiwi”, came to Napier 45 years ago, and has since excelled himself in capacity of foundation member of the Ahuriri Progressive Society with Mr T. McCarthy, and when this club went out of commission, became a foundation member of the Ahuriri Cricket and Swimming Club.

Mr Bishop became the 1st Life Member, in 1953, of the Marist Cricket Club which he founded in 1937. Himself an active cricket player until 30 years ago, was past Chairman of the Napier Cricket Association, and past member of H.B. Cricket Association.

In 1962, Mr Bishop also took the Marist team to Australia.

Together with the honours of a full sporting life both as a player and club, member, Mr Bishop also won distinctions during the 1914-18 war, when at the age of 16, then the youngest soldier, he went to France with A.I.F., where he celebrated his 17th and 18th birthdays. During the 2nd World War, he served with the 2nd N.Z.E.F. – rank, Captain.

Mr Bishop, who now plays no active role in sporting spheres, is a Tally Clerk on the Napier Wharf.

SENIOR CITIZEN

This month’s Senior Citizen is Mrs Merion Johnson, of Carlyle Street, Napier. Mrs Johnson, nee Gebbie, was born in Taradale in 1879, and is the youngest child of Thomas Gebbie, who bought a ¼of the first block of land sold at Taradale. Mrs Johnson has lived in the district all her life except for a brief period in Masterton. She had seven children, two of whom have predeceased her, and now has thirteen grandchildren and sixteen great-grandchildren.

Though Mrs Johnson will be 88 next birthday, she still keenly follows Rugby football. Her husband, son and grandson were all H.B. Reps. When she was sixty Mrs Johnson joined the Old Folks’ Association and is now a Life Member, also a Life Member of the Tech Ladies Social Club and Indoor Bowls Club. Takes an active part in Bowls and belongs to the Marewa Townswomen Guild, Trinity Methodist, and Hard of Hearing League. What a marvel! There will be a lot of people who hope they are as active at Mrs Johnson’s age.

CRIPPLED CHILDREN’S PICNIC

A terrific afternoon’s fun was had by the Hawke’s Bay Crippled Children‘s Society, when they held their picnic at the Waipukurau H.S.O.B. Hall and grounds.

Entertainment in the form of a ride through the streets of the town on a real fire engine, with the siren wailing away, donkey rides, miniature golf, darts, etc were provided.

Above Left: Everyone had a wonderful time, and here is Gary Brian on a donkey, accompanied by Brian McGrannigan, Chris Preston and Turota Cummings.

Above: Bastian Stolt crouches beside John Mouat of Takapau, who is in his go-cart.

Left: Obviously enjoying themselves and having a shot at the darts, are, from left: Christine Connelly, Ruby Casserly, Helen Cudby, Alison Wright and Heather McClean.

WAIROA SHOW

While the gatekeepers were doing a bit of a freeze, six, and five-year-old Marlene and Mark Hema, Wairoa, were happily enjoying the show, and an all-day sucker, on this a simple but most effective Scotsmen’s Stand.

Nine-year-old Nichola Harper, of Longlands, Hastings, cut a dashing figure as she waited for her event in the centre ring.

There were dogs, horses, cars, trucks, tractors, tents, displays and officials galore, at the Wairoa Show, but even though the sun had come out in all its beaming glory, there were very few people who came to see it all. We predict that The Wairoa Show is on its way into oblivion, unless someone does something about it.

Right: The dancing boards were just about as popular as anything on the grounds. Gay Davey and Susan Garner, Hastings, and, on right, Muriel Topp, Gisborne, took the top three prizes in the Highland Fling, under 10 years.

A special permit was needed to bring it to the show as this mammoth log hauler operates on private roads only

Page 7

Few people appreciate the tremendous amount of work that dedicated enthusiasts voluntarily put into the running of each and every aspect of any show. Here, Mr G. Dever and Mr G. Cook, Wairoa, and Mrs V. Fear, Hastings, (Secretary of the H.B. Centre of the Piping and Dancing Association) keep the dancing board programme moving along.

Below: The willow trees provided welcome shade for the picnickers of the (Members’ Park) area.

Chips flew thick and fast as J. O’Brien, Napier, competed in the chopping event.

THE BRIDGE BUILDERS

The Jaycees’ Alexander Park project is now on the first leg of the journey. For those of you who are a little in the dark about Alexander Park, its whereabouts and development of same, it is a new park development scheme on the creek which runs through Georges Drive. All the activity is taking place on the right of the lights, at the Marewa shopping centre when motoring towards Taradale. So far, excavations have formed a large lake with an island in the middle, and the Jaycees have decided to erect a Japanese type bridge from the Mainland to the Island.

The boys of the Jaycees have really got underway with the main beams of the bridge.

Above: Doug Anderson and Allan Thomas organise the transportation of the beams in a Straddle Truck from Holts to a shed in Curruna [Corunna] Bay Road, where they will be doing a lot of the work on the bridge.

Left: Alan Thomas, Bill Welsh and Doug Anderson (who is convenor of the project), roll the beams into the shed, where they will be painted and have had rails attached.

GAINED HIGHEST MARKS

Mr P. J. Urwin, an apprentice with the N.Z. Electricity Dept., received an award, from Mr W. Sutherland of the Cable Manufacturers Assoc. for the highest marks gained in the Electricians Practical Examination, at a dinner held at the Onekawa Hotel recently.

THE CUTEST “SNOWMAN” YET

The reference to “snowman” perhaps warrants an apology, because, Miss Shelley Skews, a hairdresser of Taupo, looks far from a snowman. Shelley had this photo taken on the Napier-Taupo Road during the last snow fall.

HONORARY DINNER

A dinner was given by the H.B. Revue Skating Club as a tribute to Miss Cheryl Laurent, who won the Glamour event at the Pacific Skating Champs in Auckland. The event, which is won on poise, appearance, ability to speak and just the entrant’s general personality, was entered by 25 other girls, 10 of whom were Australians.

Above: Cheryl, Miss Pacific Skating Queen, replies to a toast.

From left: Mary and Mr Colwill, President of the Club, Cheryl, Mr J. & Mrs Laurent, and Mr Gordon Christie, M.P.

In 1965 Robert and Annette got the Best Performance in the Juvenile Dance, and Barry got the Best Performance in the Tiny Tots Figures.

CHARITY RODEO

Recently the Rotary Club organised a Rodeo, at the Meeanee Rodeo ground, the proceeds of which would go to the Crippled Children.

Above: Some are dozing, chewing fingernails, talking, warming up, gazing into nothingness, but all doing something – these were the contestants for the day’s events at the Rodeo.

Below Left: The checking of the cattle and horses, and preparation of same is quite a big backstage job.

Below Right: “Yippeeeee! Giddup boy, c’mon there,” is normally the cry in most races, probably more so in Wild Horse ones. Robin Guillemon of Hastings is in the lead here.

Page 13

During the course of any rodeo, naturally there must be the odd spot of Wildcow milking – looks as though this is a tough piece of work.

Wild Calf roping is one of the more really thrilling rodeo events – this one didn’t get away.

These pics tell a different story. Above: They’re away, and all looks promising for a successful end – but no.

Below Left: Now just one more twist and ……

Below Centre: We cannot print what the chap concerned said in this pic, or in the next one, Below Right, where he turns his back on the calf in disgust.

THE NATIONAL BAND OF N.Z.

The visit for the first time to Hawke’s Bay of the National Band of New Zealand, was indeed a memorable occasion for those spectators at the Bands’ concert on Saturday 21st January, at Nelson Park, Hastings.

MUM AND DAD, DO YOU OFFEND?

N.Z. TRANSPORT DEPARTMENT

To stop on the off side of the road from school is to risk your child’s life. Small children forget to Stop and Look when Mum or Dad call from across one road.

Do you teach your children to Stop and Look before they cross the road. DO YOU DO IT YOURSELF. If you don’t, they won’t.

MONSTER REARS ITS UGLY HEAD OVER NAPIER !!!!

The monster in question, fortunately turned out to be quite a friendly, and also constructive, crane working on the new extensions to the Napier Hospital.

Mr John McDonald, an Airline Pilot, recently dropped into Napier Airport, in his World War II Mustang Fighter Plane, which is powered by a Packard-Rolls Royce 1890 Hp. engine. The engine has a maximum cruising speed of 400 m.p.h. and a fuel consumption of around 70 gallons p.h. Not the most economic form of transport, but admittedly fast.

NEW FILTRATION PLANT IS USED

The installation of a new filtration plant at the Hillneath School proved an important occasion for the pupils who gathered to see demonstrations by their fellow pupils on various aspects of their swimming training.

NEW ADDITION TO NAPIER’S LIBRARY

The now published and bound, handwritten Gospel, has been presented to the Historical Section of the Napier Library, at a morning tea held at the Mayoral Chambers. 372 Napier residents, including an elderly woman of 89, and a group of nurses from the Napier hospital, helped write 600 verses between them, in 5 days. The object of the campaign, which was organised by the Seventh Day Adventist Church, in conjunction with the British & Foreign Bible Society’s annual collection, was to stimulate interests in both the bible and, the Bible Society;

Above Left: Rev. C. Tanner receives the Gospel on behalf of the British & Foreign Bible Society, from Pastor Reginald Parr, of the Seventh Day Adventist Church, Napier.

Above Right: Mr I.W. Malcolm, Chief Librarian with the Napier Library, is seen before placing the Gospel in the shelves of the library.

As a matter of interest perhaps to readers, there are 70,000,000 bibles printed each year and it is still the world’s best-selling book. It has been translated into 1,250 languages and dialects, with about another 1000 still to be translated. The world’s biggest bible buying country is Africa.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU……

The 2ZC Fabulous Fifty Show. And congrats also to the men behind the Fab Fifty, D.J. Keith Richardson and his technician David Lindsay, who are seen cutting the cake to celebrate the Show’s 1st birthday, on the 21st January, 1967.

A SMILE – IN SPITE OF IT ALL

Can’t think what all the bright smiles are for, especially that of the maiden in distress. When one recovered from the initial shock of seeing such a gory scene, an explanation was received from one of the savages, who informed us it was all a sham and just Peter Cowan, George Faulknor, Liz Frazer at the stake, Peter Saggers and Paul Heath having a bit of sport at the Hydro Bar-B-que at the river recently.

WHAT IS IT?

You don’t know? Well you obviously haven’t been to Tauranga recently or looked at the top of car radio aerials around town. The “thing” is an orange drink container, purchased at present in Tauranga. It is plastic and in the shape of an orange, the leaf at the top is serrated and detachable – it is used to cut off the stalk – which leaves a hole to drink the orange drink through.

Here to launch a Woolmark fashion campaign is a glowing 20-year-old brunette who holds the title of Miss Wool of America. She is Miss Barbara Petsel, seen above wearing the pseudo-suit presented to her by the Monte-Sano and Pruzan firm, one of America’s oldest and most respected coat and suit houses.

While in New Zealand, Barbara will make an extensive tour of the country, with store appearances in all major cities promoting Woolmark fashions.

PICTURES OF INTEREST TO ALL

Micki the Mina…

Mina birds, now so common in New Zealand, can be taught to talk as well or better than any other bird. This one, named Micki, belongs to Mr and Mrs J. Mansfield, of Auckland, who have reared him from the nest. He’s just about boss now, spending most of the day walking and talking in their shop in St. Kevin’s Arcade. Feeding him a titbit is 12-year-old Jacqueline Corner.

Right: Miss New Caledonia, petite 17-year-old Christine Delierre, only went in for the contest “because her mother wanted her to.” But she has been enjoying, her tour of New Zealand, which was part of her prize.

Page 43

PICTURES OF INTEREST TO ALL

The Groom Came C.O.D.

Right: There’s a parson in that box. The Rev. John McKinley, to be exact. Some of his “friends” are wheeling him into the inward parcels branch at the Takapuna Post Office for delivery to the home of his bride of the next day, 26-year-old Christine Nicholls, of Brown’s Bay.

Seems John had been ribbing his married pals for so long that when his turn came to say goodbye to single blessedness, they got their own back in this unusual premarital prank. John was a willing party, of course!

Below: DISTINCTIVE LABEL. Champion 12-foot skipper Wayne Dillon is seen fixing a distinctive “New Zealand Made” plasticised label to his yacht, Nivea Girl before leaving for the Sydney championships. The labels were donated by the N.Z. Manufacturers’ Federation, and were made by Raywin Press Ltd., Mangere.

Above: NEW ZEALAND MADE. What’s that in the middle of the plush Logan Park Motor Hotel conference room? It‘s a Trekka, the first motor vehicle to be built in New Zealand, going on show at a special preview. The Logan Park conference room is designed to admit cars and other vehicles for functions such as this.

Age, youth, a warming welcome, and the bewilderment of childhood….they’re all conveyed in this picture by Wal Britton, of Auckland. He took it when three Tokelauan families and 22 single women arrived at Mangere recently under the resettlement scheme administered by the Island Territories and Maori Affairs Departments. Miss Tupou Simeti (left), one of the new arrivals, receives the traditional welcome from Mrs Tura Hira , and it’s all a source of wonder to little Kaloline Timena.

Right: At her home in France, DANY ROBIN keeps five real live crocodiles as pets. While filming “Don’t Lose Your Head” at Pinewood in Britain, the property department made her feel at home by providing a mock “croc” for her to nurse between scenes. “Don’t Lose Your Head” is a Comedy of the French Revolution.

MOTORING WITH ROBBIE

KEEPING your trouble light trouble-free by coiling it loosely over a tin can nailed to the wall. The can will also hold a spare bulb. Form a loop near the end of the wire and hang it over a hook to keep from accidentally pulling the plug.

SPRING type hose clamps on lower radiator connections are difficult to hold open when connecting. However, if you squeeze the clamp open and force a short length of half inch copper tubing over the ends as shown here it will hold the clamp open.

TO CHECK the state of charge of your battery, use a hydrometer which will show you the specific gravity of the electrolyte in the cells. When the battery is fully charged the reading will be 1250. If it’s flat, the reading will be about 1100.

IMPROVISE a coat hanger bracket by closing a rear window on a rubber fruit jar ring. The ring will support several garments and will leave no marks or scratches on the window. A ring cut from an inner tube will serve just as well.

A PAIR of rounded wood blocks anchored to a sloping driveway will keep a car from rolling away…the blocks should be gently rounded so that they are easy to run over yet at the same time just steep enough to hold the car when it is parked.

YOU SHOULD should lubricate the speedometer cable every 10,000 miles. Withdraw the inner shaft and apply the grease sparingly. Feed the shaft back into its casing. Then withdraw about eight inches and wipe off the surplus grease otherwise it will work its way into the speedometer head.

PLANNING AND PREPARING “BRIGADOON”

The producer for the Hastings Light Opera Company, James Morgan, Hastings, (left) started planning for the Easter production of “Brigadoon” last July. He uses a model – stage and cut-out figures to plan his movement and groupings. With him above is Mr Bob Murray, vice-president of the Opera Company.

Right: Barbara O’Sullivan, who plays Jeannie in the Scottish fantasy by Lerner and Loewe, has three bosses. Apart from taking stage directions – Mr Morgan, she has musical direction from Mr Cecil Fitzwater and ballet instruction from Emma Maye. Here she is rehearsing for one of the bright numbers in the show, “Jeannie’s Packing Up.”

Above: Jessie Swanson, who hails from Scotland, plays Meg Brockie, the comedienne, but even she has still moments on stage when a dramatic death interrupts wedding festivities.

Right; There are 16 principal characters in “Brigadoon”. Each requires a special makeup, being applied here by the producer to Bob Murray, who plays Donald Ritchie, a father sorely hit by the selfishness of his adult son.

Page 55

The principal singer, soprano Naomi Jagger, sings “…then an old maid I’ll be..,”and it’s true that in the mythical village of “Brigadoon” love is not without adventure.

Above: Musical director, and in background, the chief accompanist, Betty Hague. Mr Fitzwater has been training the chorus of 40, principal singers and the 16-man orchestra.

Right: The company treasurer. Eric Reay’s work goes on all year round but he still has time to admire the hundreds of stage props. His wife Sybil manages the properties team.

Below: Publicity is the work of a huge team. Producer Morgan keeps telling them: “There are 70,000 people in H.B. who will want to know Brigadoon is going on”….and it is, with a grand gala opening outside the Hastings Municipal Theatre on Easter Saturday.

Hastings Blossom Queen, Colleen Bishop, and senior bank officer Pearce Williams, have major dancing roles. Pearce runs several miles every day to keep fit for strenuous activity he has on the stage, including a fight.

Below: Principal male singer, David Smith, and Derek Belcher. Both have had wide experience in musicals throughout New Zealand.

DANNEVIRKE SHOW

The news photographer for the “H.B.F. Farming” magazine, by courtesy of whom this story comes to Photo News, tells us that he came across this on-horse group (right) on the morning of the first day of the very popular Dannevirke Show. They are Kay Cottle, who had a little difficulty sorting out whether to tell the photographer whether she came from Petone or Wellington; Judy Beatson, of Dannevirke; Judy Mathews, Tikikino; and Susan Reisima, Dannevirke.

Below: Later in the day, he came across seven-year-old Bronwyn Frier, Woodville, taking it easy atop “Golden King.”

Right: Over in the Hereford Bull judging ring Mr A. Sturrock, Dannevirke, and Mr L. Lambert, a Hunterville farmer, share a hay-bale grandstand.

Bottom: In the ringside seats, Mr A. McGaffin, a stud breeder of Elsthorpe, exchanges greetings with Mrs E. Powdrell of Wairoa. Other ladies were, from left, Mrs J. T. Tylee; Mrs T. N. Mullvaney, “Rawhiti”, Takapau; and Mrs C. E. Nairn, Omakere.

Page 71

On the way back from the Dannevirke Show, the “H.B.F. Farming” photographer called in at the Waipukurau Ewe Fair, and when he raised his camera to take a photo of the auctioneers in action, he almost had 200 two-tooth ewes knocked down to him at 80/- a time.

Below: When he explained that he could not find the price of one, let alone two hundred, the auctioneer had quite a lot to say about it.

After the sheep, having been unloaded off a truck in the morning and herded into one or the pens, have been the subject of a short but highly charged haggle over how much they are worth, they are then herded back to the loading bays, pushed up a ramp, and packed back into the trucks again to be shipped out to their new home.

The technilogical [technological] age is to be found everywhere, even at a ewe fair. Here, Mr P. A. Irvine, of Central H.B. Transport, notes the instructions of a buyer who wants his newly acquired property transported from the selling pen to his farm. Hanging snugly on Mr Irvine’s hip is a two-way walkie-talkie set which he uses to whistle up one or more of the twelve sheep-transporters at his disposal, thus saving himself much time and energy, energy previously taken up with walking backwards and forwards from the selling point to the loading ramps.

Left: The call for a transporter to pick up 32 two-tooth ewes is relayed from Mr Irvine, through the central office, to Mr L. H. Feck in the cab of his truck-trailer, double-decker transporter.

Page 72

To the farmer, this is not an unusual sight, but to the average city dweller the accumulation of roughly eighty-thousand pounds worth of mutton-on-the-hoof is a scene not often witnessed. This photograph of the close on twenty-thousand ewes offering at the Waipukurau Ewe Fair last month was supplied by the “H.B.F. Farming” magazine photographer.

Prospective buyers and interested spectators keep up with or just ahead of the auctioneers as they move from pen to pen.

SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW……

We were not witness to something borrowed and blue at the wedding of Heather Black to Gerald Panguay. Heather is the daughter of Mr & Mrs C. G. Black of Higgins Street. Mr Black is well known in Vintage Car Club Circles. The couple were married at the Catholic Church Napier. These vintage cars made a spectacular cortege to and from the Church.

DISC DANCE

On Friday, 6th January, the Westshore Surf Life-Saving Club, in association with Radio 2ZC, staged Hawke’s Bay’s first “Disc Dance”. The whole show was an enormous success with masses of Hawke’s Bay and also visiting teenagers going along.

Pictured, is 2ZC’s D.J. Keith Richardson at the temporary control desk, installed by Broadcasting Staff for the evening, as well as part of the crowd at the Majestic Ballroom, Napier.

Around Town

Oooooohh ! ! !

Wonder if these Witches wore britches! Though there wasn’t a terribly successful turnout of costumes at the Top Hat’s Devils Dance on Friday 13th, those who did go to the trouble of dressing up were excellent.

Left: The prize winners were Barbara Berkett who won a hand lotion and bath cube set and Marilyn Jarrett who won a manicure set.

Right: The cloakroom girls at the Hat, were dressed appropriately, in tall hats, weird capes and broom sticks. They were Marie Vile and Barbara Hogan.

OUT AND ABOUT

POLO TOURNAMENT

Whilst our photographer was cruising Around ‘n About, he found this Polo match in full gallop. It was a game between H.B. and Poverty Bay [Bay] at the Polo Grounds, Iron Gate Road, Hastings.

THE RIVIERA?

No, an aerial picture or Napier’s Marine Parade. It is, perhaps, the Riviera of New Zealand, but then we had better refrain from all this boasting. Looks terrific doesn’t it.

Sharing a joke, and very soon a cigarette, were Ngarie Terry, Pat Kyle and Sue Hopkinson.

Left: The retiring Plunket Nurse, Miss J. M. Boyd, received a bouquet from June Shanks. Miss Boyd will now enjoy a long awaited holiday.

“Alright girls, do we watch those waistlines, or throw care to the wind?” What else could they do with such a delightful spread in front of them, but the latter.

Left: “We’re first”. A triumphant cry goes up from these two women after winning a game.

YOUR BIRTH STAR INFLUENCES
An introduction to Astrology with the Signs of the Zodiac By “Lenah”

CALENDAR FOR MARCH

ARIES: March 21st to April 19th.
This is the month that can bring a surge of events. These, plus your own reactions to the opposite sex, could cause you to upset an apple cart. For the married it can even mean an overly trusting or enthusiastic attitude towards your own mate. You might better temper your responses with constructive criticism. Look sharply to opportunity or special bargains in commercial activities – your intuition will be right. Limelight becomes you!

TAURUS: April 20th to May 20th.
Do get things done where you need collaboration or co-operation, even though you may quarrel with another. It is best to iron things out now before any complications result. A new lease of life seems to begin between the 10th and 21st. This is prevaratory and bids you put clothes, self, physical and surface conditions in order in preparation for some important event or more public activity. Stimulated partnership affairs. Your diplomacy will count, but unless you know the art of soothing and influencing by persuasive praise, you could lose out. Something pessimistic and saturnian seems to be affecting an associate,mate, or person close to you.

GEMINI: May 21st to June 21st.
The 1st to the 10th is exceptionally important. You should try to utilize this cycle of illuminating revelations in the health or work departments of your life. It can mean that you discover important mistakes, and will be able to correct them in time. There is an influence from Venus that assists in bringing an old dream or wish to closer fulfilment. Try to get ahead of competitors in background activity. There is a need for caution where secret matters come to light and embarrass you. An indiscreet associate may get you into difficulty.

CANCER: June 22nd to July 22nd.
This month continues the present state of feelings. You cannot be objective. Your heart rules your head. Don’t let authorities antagonize with officiousness, the retrograde motions of Mars. 10th to 18th will bring memories, possibly regrets into your life, but it also gives you a second chance at something you might have thought shelved in career or love-life. There is an exciting cycle bringing an avalanche of details and delayed news. A dramatic situation. Friends seek your solace. Some emotion. If travelling will be entangled in situations that are unexpected and highly personal.

LEO: July 23rd to August 23rd.
You might have to contact someone from a far place. Everything pertaining to travel is well aspected. Letters and messages are of greatest importance this month. Mars could hold up some project in its initial phase. Delays will annoy you, but they will be for your own good. A good time for talking things over, with the best advice from counsellors who can smooth your pathway with special briefings. Opposition from high places. There is need for compromise.

VIRGO: August 24th to September 23rd.
You might decide to visit some place where others hesitate to go. If it concerns jobs or employment results are gratifying. Nevertheless, the planets are in retrograde position just now, and will delay any ultimate answers, finalisation of papers etc. The last of the month is better for questions needing the stamp of authority. Be prepared to forcefully launch out. There will be pressures and tensions. Legal matters may be held up. You will receive excellent counsel.

LIBRA: September 24th to October 23rd.
Strength of character may be necessary to avoid explosions with relatives. Will be impulsive, especially with inlaws or touchy people. Delays make you impatient. A coolness between you and someone important to your destiny. Don’t be caught napping. Tend to health matters, diet and special consultations. Some dramatic affairs that end in agreement. Finances are crucial.

SCORPIO: October 24th to November 22nd.
Mars stimulates all your energies, and tends to make you begin things with enthusiasm. This could be a cycle commencement of some very important projects in your life. Push things forward, because after the second week, you may procrastinate. Good for long distance contacts, foreign places, travel or legal questions. Some conflict in your life. Should change some of your ideas. Listen to one who has your best interests at heart.

SAGITTARIUS: November 23rd to December 21st.
This is a splendid month for sealing relationships with the opposite sex. You will have more than your share of magnetic appeal, and should lead from your heart rather than your head. Prepare yourself. Listen to other people’s secrets and learn much from their experiences. May try to protect someone. Keep your mouth closed on other people’s problems. If you have children, many things in their behaviour could cause you worry. Problems regarding loved ones. Use your intuition to help others.

AQUARIUS: January 20th to February 18th.
A good time for visiting, commuting, receiving calls from others. Much valuable information or gain can be yours. A good time to organize. Even though others throw all sorts of obstacles in your path, with interruptions almost to the point of exasperation, you will make more progress than you imagine, if you are determined. Call upon, or consult with a person who knows about a special subject. Listen. Use caution.

PISCES; February 19th to March 20th.
Will be tempted to over-expand economically. Will listen to sob stories. Curb this. Make amends and correct past errors. Try to catch up on things. Save yourself future financial losses by looking into matters you have neglected. A surge forward in legal, travel and distant affairs. Your nerves will be taxed.
