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.

Seen recently in Napier was a magnificent display of gymnastic grace and precision as performed by twenty-four young men and women from Denmark. Pictured here are but a few of the very graceful movements executed by these talented young gymnasts.

Ballet movement as applied to gymnastics.

The Danish folk dances were both colourful and interesting.

The annual picnic of the Napier Tech. Club was held recently at Eskdale Park in brilliantly fine weather. Attended by about 200 members and their families, the full programme was to everyone’s satisfaction. Two of the events for pre-school children are shown commencing.

Page 7

On hand to entertain was the Technical Memorial Brass Band.

Attractive winners of the ladies’ three-legged race were Judy Briggs and Liz Simpson.

On hand to Emcee the programme was well known H.B. rep Eric Hogge.

The N.Z. Drama Council’s producer, Mr. Alan Wilson, recently conducted a weekend Drama School for H.B. amateur dramatists at the Colenso High School. Here we depict Mr. Wilson explaining a theory in dramatic art to pupils who are, from left: Judith Tait, Carol Dineen, Miss Davies, Shirley Kauter and in front, Priscilla Ball.

Part of the weekend’s instruction was on the art of mime. The group mimed the “Legend of Robert the Bad”. Here we show, at left, David Redman (Hastings), as the High Priest, and at right, Diane Kinneburgh, as the Dark Angel, putting a soldier to sleep.

Page 11

Trevor Wakely, as “Robert the Bad”, bursts through a crowd of “Nuns”.

Fate finally catches up with “Robert the Bad” and he is ultimately strangled by an ape, portrayed by Betty Barker.

Alan Wilson, who is in New Zealand for two years under contract to the N.Z. Drama Council, is shown here endeavouring to emphasise the dramatic quality of miming.

The Pania Surf Casting Club’s 8th Annual Surf Casting Tournament was held at Whirinaki Beach. One hundred and twenty-five persons competed, but with singular lack of fortune. Only eight fish were accounted for, which of course works out at approximately 1/16 of a fish per person. We were, however, assured that the one that got away was a whopper! Winners of the Pania Inter-Club trophy were the Pania team who are, from left, L. Williams, C. Ireland, and T. Hall.

J. Williams is shown with the largest catch – a dogfish.

G.T. Spriggens of the Maui Club, Wanganui, caught the largest Kahawai.

Champion angler this year was Charlie Ireland.

Tom Richards and Dennis Maunder (Napier) demonstrate the hard, rugged life of “The Complete Angler”.

The H.B. Rowing Club’s Annual Regatta was once again held on the Ngaruroro River at Clive. Shown here is the H.B. Junior Four, which comprised B. Nelson, P. Hill, B. Hill, and J. Horrocks.

The Hutt Valley No. 1 team scored a convincing win in the junior fours.

The only success which came Hawke’s Bay’s way was in the single sculls which Tony Bone (above) won by 2 & 1/2 lengths.

The H.B.-P.B. Swimming Championships were held at the Olympic Pool, Napier, recently. There was a rise in the number of entries, and brilliant weather attracted hundreds of spectators. Above can be seen the start of the men’s 220 yards backstroke championship.

Greg Meade of Gisborne, comes home in fine style in the boys’ 110 yards butterfly event in the time of 1 min. 11 secs., a new boys’ and senior men’s record.

Brian Meade, also of Gisborne, was successful in his heat of the boys’ under 12 110 yards backstroke.

Page 19

M. McKee of the Comet Club, wearily leans against the end of the pool after winning the girls’ under 12 220 yards freestyle event in record time.

Sandra Whittleston (Napier), who virtually re-wrote the record book for her age group, is congratulated by Marilyn Peters (Havelock North).

Once again Gaye Morley (Olympic) thrilled the crowd with superb diving.

Margaret Wright of Olympic comes home an easy winner in the 14-16 girls’ 110 yards breaststroke.

A very disappointing number of entries in the Harbour Swim in Napier resulted in Quentin Tod (Napier) only having to complete the course to win the men’s event. However, a good performance was put up by Quentin as he had won the Taupo 3 mile event only a matter of a few hours earlier, Here we show Quentin Tod after being congratulated on his swim.

Despite the earlier swim in Lake Taupo, Quentin Tod, as can be seen, still had plenty of power left for the harbour race.

The ladies’ event went to Cheryl Gane of the Olympic Club

Page 21


The Napier Revue Skating Club was recently host to Mike Jacques and Nancy Lou Johnson of Boston, U.S.A. and Anne Edwards of Australia. A disappointingly small crowd of spectators were, however, amply rewarded with a display of top international standard skating. Here we show the form which took Mike Jacques and Nancy Lou Johnson to top honours in the North American Championships.

Anne Edwards of Australia, drew loud applause in her free skating demonstration.

Mike Jacques brought gasps of amazement during his free skating routine.

Approximately 100 East Coast Guides from Tokomaru Bay to Pongaroa attended the “Explorers” Provincial Camp at “Omatua”. Some of the “Stalkers” group are shown here cooking a pot roast dinner in true Guide style.

“Spud-Bashers”, Marie Steffensen (Takapau), Gail Anderson (Clive), and Sheryl Green of Gisborne, in action.

Cherry Wilson, Gisborne, seeks inspiration as she designs a menu card.

And of course after dinner came the dishes as Lesley Tynan (Taradale), Merle Adams (Napier) and Glenys Mackay (Norsewood) demonstrate in the camp kitchen of the “Observers” group.

A sudden shower failed to dampen the good humour of these quides in the “Trackers” Group, from left: Janet Coker (Gisborne), Peri McDonald, Pamela Church and Jennifer Jones, all from Te Karaka, and Susan Lawrie of Gisborne.

Each year a large labour force pours onto the fertile land of the Heretaunga Plains to harvest the prolific crops of vegetables and fruit. Many of these workers employed in the gathering of the crops are women. They emerge from their households clad in brief clothing and absorb the healthy rays of the sun while they supplement the weekly earnings. This series of pictures was made in and around the various crops. Even the pre-school-age children have their place, such as two year old Brent Ashton (above left), who munches on a sandwich while mum works. Below left: Barbara Monteagle and Mrs. M. Chase of Havelock North (right) pick strawberries.

Page 29

Picking berries (top) all day in the blistering sun is a tiring job, but it has its compensations for those lucky enough to be employed by Mr. P. T. Hawley, Sanoma Orchards, Havelock North. They can knock off at any time and take a refreshing swim in the spacious open air pool on the property, right beside the strawberry beds. And doing just that when the “Photo News” cameraman showed up were, from left Helen West (Australia), Jeanette Anderson (Australia), Coralie Baker (Australia), Jill Northy (a Kiwi), and Robyn Dean, from Australia.

Page 30

No wonder he’s happy! It’s been a bumper crop and for Mr. P. T. Hawley, he’s had great satisfaction from his labour this year harvesting the strawberries. Don’t be alarmed by the more sombre pose at right for Australian born Mr F. H. Muir is not on duty in Vietnam, but looking after Hawke’s Bay interests by guarding our small berries from the ravages of birds.

Top right: Looking a trifle anxious over how many peaches to leave on this Golden Queen tree is Beverly Miller of Hastings, who was working on thinning the peaches with another Hastings companion, Ngaire Stephen (lower).

The H.B.-P.B. Grass Track Cycling Championships produced as many spills as thrills when held under treacherous conditions at McLean Park, Napier. The field gets away in the first heat of the junior 2 mile event.

A number of falls marred the final of the senior mile (above) which was won by W. Thompson of Gisborne.

A View of Jerusalem Bay, Lake Taupo, one of the most popular water skiing bays on the lake. In a sheltered corner of the lake, only a few miles from the township proper, this bay attracts large numbers of boats and skiers through the holiday season. Below: With a cloud of spray cascading from her single ski, Jeanette Hole of Tirau, makes, a striking study as she skims across the placid surface.

Page 43

Two up this time, Vicky Helmore of Hawke’s Bay and Brian Shaw of Wanganui streak into the shoreline after a dual run out from Jerusalem Bay recently. They are shown (centre) just after releasing the hand grips and making fast for dry land. Georgina White (lower left) struggles for balance as she attempts a landing. Lesley Mouat (Waipukurau), (lower right), skims in under perfect control on her twin skis.

Page 44

As the motor surges into life, Jeanette Hole leans at a precipitous angle, trying to clear the wake of the speedy motor boat. Below left: They start pretty young. As in this case, the rider is only six, but he’s got plenty of nerve. David Lewis from Lower Hutt wears a life jacket as he learns the technique on a one piece board. Below right: Jeanette finishes her glide and slowly sinks in the water after her run.

Page 45

Maintaining perfect balance, Nicholas Helmore of Hawke’s Bay glides into the shore after an exhiliarating ride on a single ski. Below: With the last rays of the sun striking the boat and people, Lesley Mouat of Waipukurau gains her feet and starts off for a spin over the lake.

With the Napier Y.M.C.A. Appeal about to be launched, “Photo News” took the opportunity of paying a visit to the present premises occupied by the Y.M.C.A. in the old Hastings Street School, where the wrestling class was in progress. The extremely adverse conditions under which the organisation is at present functioning makes this appeal a “MUST” to all who have an interest in the future of Napier and its youth. Shown here are General Secretary Rex Smith signing Bill Hotten and David Kingi into the Y.M.C.A. organisation.

Junior wrestlers Barry Patchett and Stephen Ulyatt in action, watched by the rest of the junior class.

Under the watchful eye of Chief Instructor Trevor Reed, the junior and senior classes limber up.

Spirited action during the 1966 final of the Dewar Cup Polo Tournament at the Irongate Road grounds recently, which were held under ideal summer conditions. The final was played off between Hawke’s Bay “A” and Wanstead. Wanstead played brilliant polo and finished the game 6 goals to 3. An arm injury sustained by Hawke’s Bay’s Sandy McKenzie marred the play somewhat.

Top: Hawke’s Bay are on the attack here as Martin Bull hits a strong shot under his pony’s front feet, just as a Wanstead player bears in to ride him off.

Below: A Hawke’s Bay player tries an intercepting shot as Wanstead press their advantage.

Page 49

Polo means teamwork – and the girls behind the scenes contribute to the spectacle of this fast exciting game. Their task it is to groom the agile young ponies and to them must the credit go for the manner in which they turn them out.

Top picture: Vicky Helmore of Hastings leads a pony out onto the field during chukkas.

Left inset: Terry Moss of Rangitikei prepares to saddle a pony.

Below: Nicky Maude of Gisborne is in a cheerful mood as she brushes out a pony’s tail.

Parachuting for a holiday . . . how does that sound to you? Not your piece of cake, aye? But for this quartet (top) nothing could be sweeter than dropping like a stone for 45 secs. from 10,000 feet and then “pop” out flaps the colourful chute and the boys dangle in their straps for the rest of the descent, They are all members of the Manawatu Parachute Club and have been using Bridge Pa as their headquarters. They are, from left: Bruce Farquhar, Len Gray, Carl Rof, and Hugh Martin Levorson. Below: Bruce is down and he runs forward to collapse his chute.

Page 55

Hugh lands close to the target circle and flips over to control the still billowing chute. Below: Bruce Farquhar (left) and Carl Rof photographed as they approach the target area. The boys, who jump from selected heights up to 10,000 feet land with accuracy on a white circle on the ‘drome, often only feet away from the red marker.

These two ultra modern buildings, photographed in Taupo recently, well illustrate the high standard of work being undertaken in this rapidly expanding holiday resort. It also emphasises the development of permanent residents at the lake. The top photograph shows the main portion of the new Baptist Church, with its steep sided decramastic tile roof. Lower: An elaborate stone chimney ties the whole of this contemporary style home together, while carefully selected bushes and trees on a landscaped section add to the tasteful design.
