REVUE SKATING CLUB

Recently the Hawke‘s Bay Revue Skating Club has played host to two groups of New Zealand champion skaters. Unfortunately for one of the groups, heavy rain made the rink at Whitmore Park unusable, but they were nevertheless seen to advantage at the Marist Bros. School Assembly Hall. A large audience on both nights applauded the fine demonstrations. Shown here and on the following pages are some of the participants.

POWER BOAT REGATTA

The most successful regatta ever was the description given by an official of the Heretaunga Power Boat Club after its thrilling events on the Ngaruroro River at Clive recently. The crowd not only thronged the river banks but filled the overhead bridge to capacity (top picture).

BAND OF HER MAJESTY’S SCOTS GUARDS ENTERTAIN

A large crowd at Napier recently, saw a fine display by the Band of Her Majesty’s Scots Guards with the Pipes and Drums of the 1st Battalion. Despite cool and showery weather, the band gave colourful displays of marching and dancing, and played many musical numbers of all types.

MOTORISTS –
– Take a Tip from ROBBIE

Check the battery water more often than usual during the hot summer days. The water evaporates faster in the excessive heat and can drop below the top of the plates in a week’s time. Maintain the water level ¼” to 3/8″ above the plates, but don‘t overfill otherwise it will bubble out of the vents.

Driver can proceed. The driver does not have to stop for a pedestrian on the other half of the crossing.

Pedestrian has right of way. Driver must stop for pedestrian crossing on his half of the roadway.

School Patrols

Vehicles from both directions must stop and remain stopped until the signs are withdrawn after the whole crossing is clear.

Do you know your obligations at pedestrian crossings? If a diamond shaped sign is marked on the roadway it indicates a pedestrian crossing ahead.

Adjust your own brakes? It’s difficult to remember from one adjustment to the next which way to rotate the adjustment wheel when you’re tightening the brake shoes. An arrow painted over each access slot will eliminate the confusion.

Want a bug screen for your radiator that doesn’t require framing or drilling holes? Try this: Cut a piece of screening to fit and tie it in place with thin copper wires passed through the core. The screen can be left on the car permanently. After you’ve fitted it keep an eye on the temperature gauge just in case the temperature of the engine begins to rise. The radiator may be partially blocked and the screen could restrict air flow sufficient to cause an increase in temperature.

DARTS … P.O.W.s play Waipukurau

To further the cordial relationship between the two associations, a team from the Napier Ex-Prisoners of War Association recently travelled to Waipukurau R.S.A. for a darts match which it is hoped will be the forerunner of many more social visits between the two clubs. On this occasion Waipukurau had a well-deserved win over Napier.
