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

“At last,” sighed Photo-Editor Bruce MacConnell, ” And they’re even more luscious switched round face on.” You will remember in last month’s mag we asked the owners of four “rears” to come forward and identify themselves – though a little bashful, here they are. From left: Vilma Green, her sister Mary, Ann Treacher receiving her gift from Bruce and Merrin Ladbrook.

PROVINCIAL CHAMPIONSHIPS

The Hawke’s Bay-Poverty Bay Centre Provincial Championships, for senior and junior men and senior women, was conducted by the Taradale AA and CC, at Taradale Park on Saturday, 11th February.

Below: It’s all a matter of keeping those heels down and getting from point “A” to point “B” as quickly as possible, no matter how silly it looks – Roy Owen, Gisborne.

Bottom left: No official standing, but he managed a seat at the top.

It’s a long, long way up, and just as far down the other side, but senior pole vaulter A.W. Quinn, Napier, takes it all very calmly. (Although it doesn’t seem possible, he managed to get over that bar and leave the pole behind).

Three out of four brush blithely on, but the cool gent on left just had to watch as these sprinters released the pent-up energy built up on the starting b1ocks.

With a starting gun like that, he’s likely to down a passing jet-liner, or a Photo News photog who gets in the way! Hence the back-on view of starter, Mr V. Walker.

SENIOR CITIZEN

Photo News pays tribute this month to Senior Citizen James Griffin, “Old Jim” to those who don’t know just how young at heart he really is. Mr Griffin has spent most of his 81 years, which incidentally began in Waipawa, in the hard and tough occupation of a farm labourer and is, as he puts it, a Jack-of-all Trades “but don’t profess to be a champion at anything”. Among his happiest memories are the hours spent tramping in the Ruahines hunting for wild pigs and cattle, for, says Mr Griffin, “I enjoyed an active life. And still do!” Now a resident of Belgrave Private Hotel, “Old Jim” is, along with his brother, the last of a family of ten.

LIFE MEMBER

Back at the turn of the century a young lad put on a pair of borrowed roller skates and promptly discovered that four small wheels are not as stable as two feet. From that day to this, as well as learning, in the meantime, how to control roller skates with skill, Mr Fred Ansin has taken an intense interest in the sport and those who practice it.

A farmer by occupation, Mr Ansin came to Napier in 1928, just ten years after his return from service in Egypt, France, and Germany – during which time he was awarded a Military Medal. On his arrival in Napier he immediately became involved in Napier skating circles; was a foundation member of the Revue Skating Club (Nap.) and later became its first Life Member, an honour richly deserved by this sporting enthusiast who has been actively associated with football and cricket as well as roller skating. At 73, Mr. Ansin successfully keeps inactivity at bay. In fact, the day Photo News called, he was getting set to put a new roof on his home and had just recently finished laying a concrete drive.

A MORNING ON THE FIELD

It was another one of those rare summer days when our Photo News photographer armed himself with the necessary equipment and took off for McLean Park, Napier, to see what the Napier Amateur Athletic & Cycling Club members were up to. He found these young people thoroughly enjoying the strenuous and character building activities which receive less than their due of publicity.

Above left: D. Manning – a discus champion of the future?

Above right: Not a record breaking throw this time, but it was no mean effort either so he will keep on trying.

Nearing the end of the cycle race event, the girls show they can tread the pedals right up there with the boys.

Intense concentration and a maximum effort lands Ian Lum even further along the long jump pit than the time before.

Caught about to drop onto the mattress after her high jump, is Sharlene Dobbinson.

Taking a wee rest are H. Green, B. Galloway and G. Moran.

THROWN OVER

After having seen Mrs Faith Christmas in action at the Napier Y.M.C.A. Judo Club, we’ll back her against Emma Peel any time. On the receiving end of this neatly executed Seoinage (shoulder throw to the uninitiated) is Harry Lawson. The presence of Photo News on this particular evening was prompted by the fact that this was a practice night for the team scheduled to contest the National Championships at Christchurch this Easter. Sgt. Bill Wickstead, our informant on this occasion, told us that there are roughly 20 members of the men’s club and that sessions are held on Mondays and Thursdays at 8 p.m. in the old Hastings Street school buildings. If you’re looking for an enlightening experience, go along one night and watch proceedings, you‘ll be made most welcome.

H. Lawson throws Vic Turner in a Katagurmua. (We’re not sure what it is either but it has something to do with “what goes up must come down!”).

One on the ground, three in the air, as Bill Madore downs Vic Turner.

The experts of Judo say that the down-flung arm – which produces the apparently bone-cracking sound effects – absorbs most of the “fall”. We suggest that victim H. Lawson must have had fleeting doubts about this theory as he flew through the air after he had received a hefty shove in the stomach region by the right foot of Mr Strampel. (Fortunately our camera stopped Mr Lawson in midflight, so he didn’t have to worry about it!)

THE INN CLUB’S “IN”

“What’s on in town tonight?” Now there you have a very good question, especially if you haven’t yet lost the zest for living, aren’t tottering with old age, or haven’t reached the stage of taking a nap after tea in the fireside rocking chair. Jae Renaut and Mike Harward decided to fill in a gap or two in Napier’s far from lively night life by forming the “Inn Club”. Last month a packed Victoria Hotel Vista Bar, cunningly converted into a night club venue, proved that the “Inn Club” was “In” and vindicated the drive and enthusiasm of Jae and Mike. The willing co-operation of Mr Diack, one of the few remaining hotel owners in the singular, is deserving of special note, and the club’s success is further attributable to the enthusiasm of local entertainers in backing up the Eric Coombs band.

Below: If you’re going to entertain, get with it. That’s the attitude of Hastings folk singers (from left) Peter Harris, Trevor Ruffell, and Doug Farquhar who go under the title of “The New Whiskey Hill Singers.”

Mike Harwood, seen here chatting with Tuppence Webster, is one of two Napier men who saw the need for the introduction of some high tone night life in the town .

Paul Holthusen, Cecilly Bryant, Greg Yates and John Nicholson were just one of the many groups who will be making another visit to the Napier “Inn Club”.

Jae Renaut, an immigrant from the N.Z.B.C. at Masterton, joined forces with Mike to form the “Inn Club”.

And one doesn’t have to be just out of nappies to have the urge to go out on the town. Perhaps the Inn Club will open up the first chink in Napier’s traditional conservatism.

PUKETAPU SCHOOL GALA

A gay atmosphere prevailed over the Puketapu School’s Gala Day on Saturday 11th March. Everywhere there were exciting things to do including pavement drawing, as seen above. The artists in this case were Patrick Matukurupo, David Poutawa and Rawinia. Then there were pony rides, and here we capture gay “Sir Galahad” (right) urging his mighty mare onwards to yonder castle…..well, you know the story. When Sir Gal dropped the disguise he turned out to be Mark Thompson, and the fair maid, Kerry Ebbett, both just over four years old.

Above: The soft drink stalls were as popular’ as ever – Cheryl Marshal and Raewyn Cotterill.

Right: Young Alec KauKau didn‘t have much to spend, but he made the most of what he had.

Below: Perhaps the biggest event of all was the Hangi, the beginnings of which are shown here.

Page 21

Above: From the pic on the previous-page, to this, the unearthing of the “Hangi”. “Opening the oven door” is Rangi Raheke, Percy Ratahi and Harvey Kaurauria.

Below: Looks mighty, and looked even better when one could smell it.

Right: The whole mouth-watering proceedings were carefully and thoughtfully supervised by Paul Murupo.

Below: There was no automatic timing or temperature control devices but, the food that came out of that mound of dirt just “fell apart” when the carvers got to work.

LIONS DISTRICT CONVENTION

Earlier this month, about 300 Lions, of the human variety, descended on the town of Napier, (oops! City) as guests of the Napier, Taradale, and Hastings Lions Clubs. The occasion was the annual convention of clubs from the Lions International District of 202B which comprises about 36 clubs in the Southern North Island area.

Above: Just look what happens to that old bar, affectionately known by the citizenary of Napier as the Centennial Hall, when a group of energetic Lions, in this instance headed by Lion Colin Anderson, Napier, put their collective backs into transforming it into a convention venue.

Left: The Lions brought along their ladies, and while the male species of the Lion clan were roaring away on the business floor, their partners were being shown the sights of Napier and Hastings. Part of their programme was a fashion parade in the grounds of Ormlie Lodge (out past the Waihiki [Waiohiki] Golf Course on Omaranui Road). Here are the models for the day.

Below: A section of the appreciative audicence.

Page 27

The down-stairs section of Napier’s Municipal Theatre was packed to capacity when the curtain went up on the very impressive opening ceremony of the Lions’s convention. Here, being carried down the aisle is the United States flag, during the Flag Ceremony, a feature of Lions Conventions in which the International aspect of the organisation is recognised.

Below: During the ceremony, soldiers placed the U.S., United Nations, and New Zealand flags in front of the already arranged 80-odd flags arched on the stage as a symbolic representation of the over 100 countries in which Lions Clubs operate. On stage is the official party including (from right of centre) Mr and Mrs Ivor Curtis, Napier District Governor and Chairman of the Convention, and the Mayor and Mayoress of Napier. At the Podium, directing this part of the function, is Napier solicitor Mr Noel Toomey, a past president of the Napier Lions Club.

CONSTRUCTION

Napier’s fire engines will soon be wailing a fond farewell to their Tennyson Street home of so many years and taking up residence in this shortly to be completed fire station in Taradale Road, adjacent to League Park’s residential area. Our information is that this station will contain some of the most up-to-date equipment available. (Muted sirens too?)

Left: School Road, Clive, is currently one big mess, and is certainly the source of no end of inconvenience to commuters. But no one is complaining too much, for this activity represents a giant step forward in the progress of the town. Begun some three months ago, the laying of the sewage system is expected to be completed towards the end of next year.

Below: The new “Silver Birch” Milk Bar/Tea Rooms, run by Roy Beaver of King Carnival fame, is yet further evidence of Clive’s new-found advancement from the sleepy-hollow category. The unfinished shop, right, is to be occupied by a chemist.

Page 29

DESTRUCTION

The old Waitaingi [Waitangi] Bridge, between Napier and Clive on the Napier-Hastings highway, may well look small and insignificant beside it’s high, wide and handsome replacement, but it is more than a pint sized job to remove it from the scene. Contractors have been working for many months at the task and they’ll be working at it for a few more months yet.

Above left: First the decking and beams must be lifted, working progressively backwards.

Above: Then the bridge foundations are toppled from atop the piles. And it takes a mighty powerful winch to achieve this apparently simple task. (Note the new bridge in the background.)

Left: The relative size of the construction which supported the bridge is seen in this pic. (Now how did that workman get off there after the beam had fallen into the water along with its mate?

Below: And there’s quite a spectacular splash generated as the felled foundation displaces a great deal of water in a big hurry. (Photos supplied by Mr Cody, contractor manager.)

BRIDAL WEAR FROM 1900 TO 1967

The Mayfair Kindergarten Mothers’ Club hit the jack-pot again with their “Bridal Wear Down Through the Ages” fashion parade and fancy-dress evening held in Hastings earlier this month.

Right: Not quite a full football team, but the club committee certainly put their backs into this function. From left, rear: Doreen Stewart, Helen Ayre, Pat Scarrott, Mary Knott, Marie O’Connor, Rosalie Taylor, and Robyn Arrel.

In front: Flora Dannielson, Mary Blackwell, Diana Newdick, Margaret Rosewell, and Mary Walker.

The bridal gown worn by Kay Walker was well over 60 years old.

Right: In striking contrast, was the latest in bridal wear worn by Mrs Molly Wilson – the gown was just three weeks’ old.

Page 31

A somewhat off-beat approach to the question of what to wear at your next wedding was provided by, from left, Flora Dannielson, in a crepe paper creation; Mary Knott in the latest of sheet wear; Margaret Rosbourne, a space age bride; and sackcloth designer, Shirley Hook.

A visitor from the Parkvale Kindy Mother’s Club flew in for the evening.

Left: Flowers and lace were once the rage – and Mrs Pat Scarrott must surely have made a beautiful bride.

Right: “Tally-ho” for Mrs Evalyn Jenkins.

HARVEST DAY FESTIVAL

Mr Reuben Lowe’s Twyford Road property in Hastings presented ideal surroundings for the Salvation Army Harvest Day Festival on Saturday, March 11th. A portion of the proceeds from the produce, cake, small goods and coconut shie [shy] stalls, was to stay in Hastings and the rest was sent to the Home Mission fund. A prominent guest at the Harvest festival was Major Gotham, who, with his wife, has just returned from 10 years in England.

Above: A harvest festival it was, with produce of every description for sale. Mr Ron Pearce and Mr Allan Bennison are obviously adept at this sort of work.

Left: We found it rather hard to leave the cake stall, which was run by Mrs Jeffrey and Mrs Pearce.

Below Left: During the course of the festival, the Levin Salvation Army Band entertained with a number of items.

Below Right: One became exhausted merely watching 7-year-old Jennifer Claughton on the trampoline, which was among the most popular attractions of the day’s events.

NEW ZEALAND FASHION SCENE

Trouser Suits

Pure virgin wool flannel, checked and plain, is used by Maida Vale for these long-jacket look alike trouser suits. How do you like the matching cap?

Sporty

Harris tweed is used in a mod manner in this Alexon design by Cantwell Creations, featuring rounded lapels and a self belt.

Revolutionary Knitwear

Described as one or the major innovatlons in the knitting field in recent years, revolutionary TD Orlon will appear on the New Zealand market shortly. A specially processed yarn, which produces a clearly-defined stitch, vivid expression of colour, better dimensional stability, resistance to surface distortion, and higher elasticity, it is shown in two long-sleeve, crew neck styles.

Switchabout

Value-for-money girls will appreciate the sound good sense, fashion-wise and finance-wise, of this switchabout Woolmark set by Southwell of Auckland. Jacket, skirt, and slacks in navy pure virgin wool jersey teams well with a red over-blouse, featuring a navy motif for a terrific trouser suit or a smart conventional three-piece suit.

Smart and Neat

This slack suit, with a long-sleeved jacket, is one of the new Crimplene fabric garments unveiled to the clothing trade at a fashion show in Auckland last month. The new fabric, a big success overseas, is a crimped Terylene.

Moment of Agony

Many spectacular rodeo pictures have been published in the pages of Photo News over the years, but the “daddy” of them all would surely be this shot, recorded at the Kihikihi Rodeo by Waikato Pix photographer George Hawkins, of cowboy Rodger O’Neill’s moment of agony.

Thrown from his furious mount, O’Neill lands awkwardly and his left leg breaks under the force of impact.

A second later he was writhing in agony under the flashing hooves, before being dragged clear and rushed to hospital.

WHOA BOY

Another outstanding horse picture from the Hawkins file is this dramatic pile-up at the Cambridge Trotting Club’s centennial meeting.

The picture shows the driver of Stan By desperately pulling back on the reins in a vain attempt to stop his flying charge from leaping over a fallen Creggan.

Creggan’s driver, I. Thomas, is thrown heavily onto the track, and was later admitted to hospital with spinal injuries.

The third horse, already fallen by the rail, is Volta.

To Visit New Zealand

The N.Z. pop scene will be, like with-it, during the next few weeks when several top-line overseas artists visit this country.

Three top British acts will arrive in mid-April for Harry M. Miller’s “April Big Show”. They are the Hollies, Eric Burdon and the Animals, and Paul and Barry Ryan.

Late in March, Herb Alpert and his Tijuana Brass (right) will play at Auckland and Wellington.

Peter, Paul, and Mary will return for their second N.Z. tour in May.

Pampering the Palate

While T.V. food man Graham Kerr is away in Australia, his campaign for better appreciation and use of N.Z. foods does not suddenly cease.

There is a team of young New Zealanders at the National Food and Wine Centre in Wellington who carry on the task of focussing attention on our foods.

The team includes Kerr’s business partner John Buck, the “Mr Wine” side of the centre, who is this country’s only “Chevalier du Taste-vin”…a French title for recognised wine-tasters.

The centre’s activities include lecture courses on wines and food preparation, as well as display of foods, and staff members include trained home economists.

Cloud-Piercer

Seven layers of different materials, including compressed asbestos, stainless steel, mild steel, and a neoprene seal, were laminated by Industrial Chemicals (N.Z.) Ltd, in Auckland, to make bearings for this, the largest chimney in New Zealand.

The chimney is 400 feet high, and is on the site of the oil-fired power station now nearing completion at Marsden Point, Whangarei.

Note the apparently mini-sized trucks at the base of the structure.

Paraplegic Robin Hoods

Three of the growing band of courageous and devoted wheelchair sportsmen aim for the bull while competing in the archery section of the recent Paraplegic Sports, in Auckland.

The two rear archers, N. Brown and W. Flood, were both Silver Medal winners at the Jamaican Paraplegic Games. In front is N. Ruatara.

Wheelchair basketball, an apparently spectacular sport, is the newest event to be added to the already comprehensive programme.

MOTORING WITH ROBBIE

Stop battery corrosion around the posts and terminals with a paint made from the pitch of old batteries dissolved in petrol. The paint can be stored in a closed jar and brushed on whenever cables have been removed or a new battery is installed.

Removing electrician’s insulating tape wrapped around a splice on lighting wires or wiring loom can be difficult, especially if the splice is in a cramped place. It will soften up and come off easily if you pass a match or lighter flame across the tape a few times. Don’t set the tape alight, just heat it long enough to soften it.

If the side windows are hard to open and close, the mechanism may need oiling. Lower the glass all the way, wedge it to one side, and insert a stiff wire down to the mechanism. Oil deposited on the wire will follow it right down to the desired part. This works with door locks too, of course.

A hose nozzle can’t scratch or chip your car’s finish if you cover the end of the nozzle with a crutch tip. Cut a 5/8″ hole in the crutch tip to let the water through and centre the hole so that it won’t interfere with the fine-spray adjustment.

Print your name and address and telephone number with a crayon on the inside of your car’s hub caps. If you should happen to lose one, there is a good chance it will be returned or you will receive a phone call to collect it.

BAND OF THE MONTH

Earnie [Ernie] Rouse’s Trad band needs no introduction to the majority of Hawke’s Bay folk. The big hit band at glittering balls and social functions has now released their own, and first, “Trad” LP. Record. Members are from left back, Bob Keogh, drums; Kevin Keogh, trumpet; Ross Culver, bass; Tom Kerr, trombone; and front, Kevin Morris, clarinet and tenor sax; Ernie Rouse, piano; and John Clarke banjo. The band had an extremely tight schedule this Easter; they played at Rotorua’s renowned War Memorial Dance on Saturday night and then at Tauranga’s N.Z. Jazz Festival on Easter Sunday night.

SYDNEY SONGSTERS

On Wednesday evening, 8th March, the Asher Hall reverberated to some of the most glorious song brackets ever heard in Hawke’s Bay. It was on this night that the 60-strong choir of the North Sydney Salvation Army, then on a New Zealand tour, performed to an audience which not only filled the planned seating, but packed the aisles as well.

FASHIONS IN WOOL

After drinks, savouries and discussion for nigh on half an hour, the long awaited Fashion Parade at the Mayfair Hotel, Hastings, on Wednesday 14th eventually got under way. The “Festival of Wool Mark Fashion,” which the evening was called, was organised by H.W. Blackmore Ltd., Hastings, in conjunction with Anthony Squire Suits Ltd. and the Wool Board. Guest for the evening was vivacious and lovely “Miss Wool of America”, Miss Barbara Petzel, pictured left in an exquisite all wool evening gown; just part of her 40 ensemble all wool wardrobe. Miss Petzel, a University student, will be returning to USA to finish her Bachelor of Arts degree when this tour is over.

SIR CHARLES SAID ‘SHAKE’

And shake he did, almost every Scouts’ and Cubs’ hand (not forgetting the troop leaders) at a rally at Tomoana Show Grounds, Hastings, in honour of the visit to H.B. of the world Chief Scout, Sir Charles McLean, of Scotland. The scene at the show grounds was extraordinary, with literally hundreds of green-clad figures dashing here and there performing hakas, singing in groups, running errands, and just taking it all in.

Left: Kilt-clad Sir Charles shakes Scout/Cub style (left handed for those who don’t know), and chats for a few moments with one of the luckier boys.

Above: Certainly not the “Queen Mary”, but good enough for the lily pond at Tomoana show grounds. Built of manuka branches lashed together with rope and covered with canvas, “boat” provided great sport for the Scouts and Cubs. In the boat at the time were numbers of the Hastings St. Andrew’s pack.

COLLEGE GALA

This beautiful tree-shaded area in the grounds of Lindisfarne, Hastings, provided an idyllic setting for the school’s gala day, held on Saturday, March 11th. To add to the usual gala day activities, the organisers had set up a bowling green, “Make a Record” stall (which attracted clients by playing, very loudly, a continuous series of ‘hep’ pop music), and quite marvellous produce stalls.

WELL TIMED!

Three children of different ages, but all with birthdays on the 13th March, and, most remarkable of all, they are all members of the same family. Not too many mums and dads could boast of such an achievement, even with the best of family planning ideas. The latest addition to the Robson family of Taradale, Stacey Jane, seen here held by Mrs Robson, upset the perfect score by arriving twelve days late. Above, with Mrs Robson and Stacey Jane, are, from left, Jaqueline, six; Michael, four; and, beside dad Don (a Napier Traffic officer), seven-year- old Terry.

SCOUTS’ BADGE PRESENTATIONS

Along with the annual general meeting of the Napier South Scouts, at the Scout Hall, Georges Drive Napier, on March 13th, there was also an opportunity to present badges to quite a number of the boys. Guest of honour for the evening was Kupp Swami, the High Commissioner of Scouting in Fiji.

Right: Group Scoutmaster Newton Ango [Angove], receives the Gilwell Scarf, woggle and scouting beads. It is the highest honour for a scout to receive these articles, as they signify that he has completed his training as a scouter at the scout training camp at Tatham [Tatum] and is now a fully fledged scout. Mr Ango [Angove] is of the Napier South troop.

Above: District Commissioner Bob Sanderson of Pirimai presented Philip Wilson with the Scouts Cord. Previous to this, Philip received two proficiency badges which enabled him to gain the cord.

Right: Second class badges went to Sean Leyland and Allan Shepherd, presented by Trooper Crabtree.

Below: Mr Kupp Swami chats informally with the boys who are going to Fiji in the May holidays. Mr Swami was giving them a briefing on conditions, people, what to look for and what not to look for, how the people will react, and how the boys should react, remembering all the time that they are ambassadors of Scouting throughout N. Z.

TEMPERANCE CONVENTION

Mrs C. Toomer, Nelson, president of the Women’s Christian Temperance Union, had the official party, and the audience, just about falling off their chairs during her address to approximately 70 delegates attending the Union’s 80th Annual Dominion Convention held in Napier this month. Target of the speaker’s humorous barbs were Napier’s Mayor, Mr Peter Tait (to right of speaker), and Napier’s M.P., Mr Gordon Christie (second from right).

Mrs Toomer introduced her subject by saying that she was about to “educate” Mr Tait and Mr Christie. Both men took the light hearted arrows, with serious tail feathers, in very good part – they could do little else anyway!

Right: Mrs Murial [Muriel?]McCallum, Mrs Edith Wills, and Miss Marj Bradley are Temperance Union members from way back; they were the only past members of the “Young People’s Branch” present at the meeting. All three are Napier residents.

WHERE IT IS

In the last issue, (February) we sited the Jaycee’s soon-to-be-erected Japanese-styled footbridge, in the wrong place. The reader who told us about it got his feet awfully wet when he went down to Alexander Park, in Georges Drive, to try it out – it was a dark night!

Right: Here we show its exact location between Latham Street and the Scout Hall. The abutments have already been poured and await the Jaycee-built bridge. Note the existing bridge in the background, and keep using it for a while yet. Incidentally, the Jaycees are pre-fabricating the completed bridge and will transport it down to the Georges Drive creek in one piece, so if you happen to see a bridge cross your line of vision in the near future, don’t head for your opticians. Follow it and witness the latest thing to hit New Zealand – instant bridge.

AND WHERE IT ISN’T

Left: Contrary to predictions, you will still need a boat to get across to this Alexander Park Island – just north of the Kennedy Road traffic lights. We asked the Jaycees if they’d run a ferry service, just to show that we were partly right last month, but they declined, so you’ll have to provide your own boat too! Incidentally, this island arrived there via some energetic digging by the local council.

That monster we told you about last month, up on Hospital Hill, Napier, will very soon pale into insignificance alongside the multi-storied steel and concrete structure it is mothering.

Left: Now here is what we call a “fill in”, and we had to wait until the editor wasn’t looking to get it in, for the young lady interviewing a couple of sheep – front and back ends respectively, is Photo News sub-editor Rae McGill, Taradale. That‘s a microphone Rae is holding and she was trying to get on tape just how heavy those sheep were.

CLIVE KING CARNIVAL

Who says it’s all hard work being a King Carnival contestant? (Or being a photographer, for that matter?) These girls were the courageous ones, but, unfortunately there weren’t enough of them to make the Bikini Girl contest worthwhile, but each received a prize anyway. Here they get together with the three King Carnival Contestants, from left: Brian Dellow, Roy Beaver (declared King of Kings), and Doug Matson.

Below: These two bikini clad (or unclad) beauties attracted just as much attention as their elder contestants, but we predict that that coy strap-dropping routine will attract even greater attention if repeated in ten years’ time.

This summer has not been the best of summers for outdoor activity, but King Cole smiled benignly on the organisers of Clive’s Civic King Carnival when they held their Gala Day at Farndon Park.

The relatively large crowd gave a boost to the funds already raised (approximately £3,000) in the town’s bid to find £4,500 to renovate the local hall. That day Farndon Park was the scene of a great deal of fun and frolics, including tractor rides, pony rides, go-cart rides, and side shows. Mr Duncan McIntyre, M.P. for Hastings, came along to declare the Gala Day open.

Below: The lolly scramble generated considerable noise and energy from the younger generation. Method of distribution was at the hands of the Kings riding on the back of a stock car.

Choir practice for the girls at the direction of H.B.Tribune photographer F. Fraser.

A few-brave souls attempted to roll the Rock ‘n Roll car – without much success.

Pony rides on a diminutive Shetland pony were high on a list of priorities for the younger fry – Sheryl Warren takes her turn.

BRING ‘EM ALL IN –

NOW WHAT ARE YOU GONNA BID FOR THEM?

….is perhaps, an auctioneer’s call not applicable outside the saleyards, but going by the bartering flying round at the St Peter’s Parish monster auction, on Saturday 4th of March, one might have imagined oneself at a genuine high class auction room. The gentleman on the right, minus one arm (actually it is up the back of his shirt) has a most odd, but unique, method of bidding. Auctioneer Barry Lloyd (back to camera, in elevated position) appears dubious about taking the bid seriously.

Among those items (below) which were to be auctioned that day at St Martin’s Hall, Mayfair (Hastings), were spare wheels, wheelbarrows, trailers, books, refrigerators, washing machines, radiograms, suites of furniture, glasses, pots, pans, etc. Anything. You name it, they had it.

Left: “Going, going, gone – to the man with the iridescent tie – one wheelbarrow in good condition,” bawls out Auctioneer Lloyd.

BOY’ HIGH ATHLETICS

Left: Clever trick if you can manage it – Robert Robertson, pupil of Napier Boys’ High, clears the high jump bar at 5′ 3½”, unfortunately only 2″ under the school record jump, at the school’s athletic sports held at McLean Park on Monday 6th March.

Below left: Only one thing is missing – his flying carpet! Seriously, this pic shows Gerald Martin about to hit the dirt during the senior hop, step and jump event.

Bottom left: Four placegetters in the Cornford intermediate and senior mile, are, from left: Bruce Newman, 16 years; Tim Ward, 16 years; Bill Hart, 15 years; and Paul Kingston, 14 years.

Below: Guest demonstrator, and New Zealand Champion Hammer Thrower, Daryl Gilliland, swings into action. Daryl won the N.Z. title on Friday, 3rd, and is a Napier Old Boy.

NAVY INVADES WAITANGI

But fear not, the invasion consisted only of hard work preparing for the Waitangi Day celebrations which were held on the 7th of February. Hard at work in the Treaty House at Waitangi, were, from left, Wren Louise Rossan of Dunedin, and Wren Carolyn Robson of Napier, who were assisting in the preparation of seating arrangements.

NEW HUT

Scouts, Cubs, Dads and wellwishers turned out in force when it came time to start work on the Lee Road, Taradale Scout Hut. When completed, the building will represent three years of fund raising, (And a certain amount of shovel-leaning!)

THE “SLAVES”

Rally forth at the Richmond Kindergarten Xmas party, with tea-towels, jugs, saucers and even a flower pot. With all the running round after and feeding of the kiddies, the workers still came up with a smile.

OFF TO AMERICA

This is what a seagull saw as he (or she) flew over the Danish ship Inger Skou as it made haste to leave the port of Napier on its way to the East Coast of America after having made its first visit to Hawke’s Bay. Unladen, the Inger Skou weighs in at 2,372 tons and takes in another 2,000 tons of wool and pelts without sinking.

YOUR BIRTH STAR INFLUENCES
An introduction to Astrology with the signs of the Zodiac by “Lenah”.

CALENDAR FOR APRIL

ARIES. March 21st to April 19th.
Venus is still enhancing your glories and making other people see you in an exaggerated or glamorous light. You may not be, able to maintain the role you have chosen. Spending and extravagance could get out of hand, if you don’t watch. You will be master of some situation. Some excitement. Trips or quick communications by phone. You will be able to handle a financial or economic problem.

TAURUS. April 20th to May 20th.
Press ahead with arrangements before others compete or beat you to some opportunity. Let others quarrel among themselves. A task you once hated will grow easier. The 11th-18th can show you where you were wrong about someone who seemed to be in opposition or against you. An active, changing period. Put your mind on changing and practical affairs and realize that bargains or some special gains can be yours at this time.

GEMINI. May 21 to June 21st.
Don’t avoid responsibility. With Mars swinging into a playful angle of your chart you may feel temptations to shirk special responsibility. And Mars can bring you into an amorous mess if you have any tendencies in that direction. There’s need for a sense of humour and balance. Resist spending. You will be flattered, admired, surrounded by those who will sway you, against your will in some cases. In business it’s a time of heady wine, alluring offers and love life may need to rescue a friend.

CANCER. June 22nd to July 22nd.
Friendships are extremely important to your destiny. Some differences between family and new acquaintances. Someone close to you may resent another, and you could find yourself in the middle of some silent battle. A secret cycle wherein special objectives can be facilitated by events. Surprises and honours will come to many of you. Some conflict between private and public life. Venus is trying to tell you to accomplish things without fanfare. See people alone.

LEO. July 23rd to August 23rd.
You may find some of you in favour with parents, bosses, those holding key positions. Yet Mars is still inclining you to hasty speech and indiscretion. Recheck tales told by others and don’t take things on face value. Some long-a-waited news. Work out travel plans. Some secret harmony may smooth a once rocky pathway. Some changes. Events occur beyond your control due to interference of friends. A phone call may alter your plans. Beware of snap judgments.

VIRGO. August 24th to September 23rd.
Venus favours your wisdom, gives you the answers you seek through guesswork and intuition. Someone shows an interest in your affairs. An excellent time to meet new acquaintances who can mean more to you in later life. One special encounter can lead to a partnership arrangement for your future. Offers and invitation come your way. Plan ahead and know what you are doing. Avoid quarrels. Money matters may cause pressure in your life. Tension throws you off guard, causing some grievous errors.

LIBRA. September 25th to October 23rd.
There is a need for secrecy and wisdom. Most of you are preparing a project and will welcome a chance to talk it over with a collaborator. Your health and feelings of propriety are enhanced through a good relationship with co-workers. Persuade partners to do something for the good of all. Try to straighten out your financial affairs. Start a new savings programme. But there may be peculiar opposition from collaborators.

SCORPIO. October 24th to November 22nd.
Unparalleled chance to impress the public. The first two weeks you are attractive and magnetic. Yet private problems that have been repressed may again rise to the surface. Beware of over-optimism. Look into all legal or travel matters thoroughly before making final decisions. Lime-light and activities come so fast that you will have to use your famous ability to do four things at once. Especially those of you who have an active social life find it conflicts with private desires. Differences with your partner could reach an impasse.

SAGITTARIUS. November 23rd to December 21st.
Good cycle for looking into job opportunities. Employment areas are smoother by the Planet Venus. Don’t feel neglected if you haven’t heard from a friend for some time. An exciting cycle when your instincts are to co-operate and collaborate with someone who inspires you to be the best of your many personalities. Generosity might be misplaced, especially when children are concerned, but it gives you personal pleasure to bestow. Some crisis in your business or daily activities. Some disagreement with a loved one.

CAPRICORN. December 22nd to January 19th.
Will have to listen to others patiently. Don’t try to swing something too quickly before your associates are ready for it. Venus, governing children, dear ones, and dependents, will help you to get others to work well together. It won’t be easy but you can do it. But there’s a need for co-operation among those who are close to you. You seem to be in the middle of some situation. Your own health could easily be affected by tensions and it might be good for you to escape. Some crises. Watch temper.

AQUARIUS. January 20th to February 18th.
Wait for mid-month before seeking favours or trying to influence those you love. May feel impatient. Others seem very much taken up with their own affairs. You are not able to cross certain projects you have in mind. Special talents you possess ought to be polished because the 11th-15th you stand on a kind of threshhold and it could mean a beginning in your life. You will need all your charms, special abilities. Some dramatic situation involving others. Much of what happens here is beyond your control and fatalistic, yet ultimately it is a good cycle. Changing views could take you by surprise.

PISCES. February 12th to March 20th.
Mercury still gives you keen wit and ability to see beneath the surface of things. Quick visits and conferences will pay off. But take care 10 to 12th not to divulge other people’s secrets. Communications reach a point of hectic, unnecessary chaos. But you can dodge those who would force you to commit yourself on certain issues.Your quick action might save a financial situation which otherwise could deplete your pocket-book. May receive news that proves you right. A beneficial property deal may come up.
