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.

Front Cover. Featuring on our cover this month is attractive Tammy Minton, of Hastings. Tammy, who originally hails from Cardiff, claims swimming, dancing and reading to be her main interests outside of her profession of hairdressing.

Back Cover. A charming study of two small children, Rochelle and Ralph Levy, with a tame fawn which resides in a small private zoo near lake Karapiro.

Something new for a dolphin is the antics of Jenco, one of the Dusky Dolphins in the Napier pool. When called he propels himself from the water in a magnificent leap BACKWARDS and to date nobody has been able to figure out how he does it. Picture shows Jenco almost at the peak of his leap.

Miss Janet Bottoma who paid a recent visit to Hawke’s Bay, was one of the two air hostesses from K.L.M. Royal Dutch Airlines who were on exchange with two hostesses from N.A.C. This is a scheme which is encouraged by National Airways to allow hostesses to gain further experience in the workings of other airlines.

Pictured here is Janet making one of Napier’s dolphins, Brenda, leap for her dinner.

Janet gets to know Brenda better and feeds her a tit-bit.

Janet has her first look at the Kiwi, at the Greenmeadows Game Farm, she seems quite intrigued with our national mascot.

The Japanese art of Origami, or paper folding, was demonstrated recently to approximately 200 H.B. teachers, therapists, nurses and members of the medical profession, by the foremost exponent of this art, Mr. Akira Yoshizawa. The ability of Mr. Yoshizawa to transform pieces of paper to virtually animate characters amazed the audiences wherever he went. We show here, from left, Mrs. Yoshizawa, Mr. Yoshizawa and their interpreter, Mrs Taeko Braid of Hastings, with a few of the 2000 basic creations of this master of Origami.

A deft twist of paper … and a Kiwi is born.

Page 8

Deeply engrossed in this fascinating pastime were, from left; Lynn North, Stephanie McCallum, Glyn Burtenshaw, Kindergarten teachers from Hastings, and Colin Tiffen, President of the Japan Society of H.B.

Certainly intrigued but no stranger to Origami, was Sister Michiko Seki of Tokyo, now nursing at Napier Public Hospital.

An extremely interested participant was Mrs. Frances Murphy, Headmistress of Fairhaven School.

Page 9

St. Joseph’s Maori Girls’ College, Greenmeadows, were hosts to Mr. and Mrs. Yoshizawa, of Japan, who toured New Zealand giving demonstrations of Origami. The entertainment was mutual as Mr. and Mrs. Yoshizawa had never seen the perfect harmony of voice and body as depicted by the girls of St. Joseph’s, whilst the girls had not previously witnessed the fascination of Origami.

The Napier Deerstalkers Club recently reached a milestone in its history, with the opening of the Club’s own hall in the light industrial area in Onekawa. Built mainly by voluntary labour over a period of approximately 18 months, the hall’s appearance and fine appointments reflect a great deal of credit on this Club and its members. The official party present to mark the opening, are, from left: Jack Pratt (H.B. President), Mrs. Pratt, Mr. John Henderson (Vice-President N.Z.D.A.), the Mayor of Napier, Mr. Peter Tait, and J. G. Edwards, M.P., Mr. A. Moore, District Forest Ranger, Mr. Harry Stewart, Napier President, and Roy Angen, Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee.

The view above depicts the route the line will take from the road, whilst the lower photograph shows the progress made with the new line cutting across the Embankment Road. A Ministry of Works spokesman told “Photo-News” that it is hoped to have the road re-opened within 6 months.

A massed band concert, comprising the Napier and Hastings City Bands, and the Waipukurau and Dannevirke Municipal Bands, played a popular selection of both modern and traditional band music to an appreciative audience of approximately 400 in the Napier Botanical Gardens. As can be seen by the lower view, it would take only a little imagination to turn this beautiful area into a first class natural amphitheatre.

The largest Supermarket in Napier is under construction at the corner of Kennedy and Wellesley Roads, and it is hoped to have the building completed by early in May. With a first stage area of 20,000 square feet, parking for 100 vehicles, and provision for a further six shops, this could well prove to be an asset to housewives not wishing to venture right into town to make their purchases.

Seahorses galore – a corner of the seahorse tank at the Napier Aquarium. This magnificent tank is a great attraction to all who wish to enjoy the antics of these fascinating creatures.
