WINTER IS HERE AGAIN!

To usher in the winter we asked Mrs. Dawn Wright, a well known Napier and Hastings model, to model a winter outfit supplied by Anna Belle, the fashion centre of Hastings, for this month’s cover picture.

Dawn is wearing a black, pure wool suit featuring the dropped shoulder-line and blouson back. More about winter fasion appears inside.

Junior Juniors

As promised in our last issue, here are some photos of the Napier Pacific Life Saving Club‘s junior team. The members of this miniature team are all young boys not yet in their ‘teens,
but they don’t just play at being life-savers. All of them gained their resuscitation certificates during the year and can safely claim full membership in the surf life-saving
fraternity.

A march-past for “Photo News” Left to right; Ken Moore, John Harris; Doug Gempton, Nigal Martin, Peter Gabites, Anthony Hull, Paul Gempton,
Victor Hull and Peter Harris.

In perfect step, Peter Harris, Richard Manning and John Harris carry their patient up the beach in truly professional style.

As young as they are, these boys are all at home in the surf.

ULTRA-MODERN HASTINGS HOTEL

The spacious covered-in Beer Garden is just a part of the over 10,000 square feet of floor space set aside for the bar trade and assures comfort for ladies and their escorts to relax in surroundings completely separated from the bar. Acoustic tiles and central heating add to the comfort of patrons also.

On the accommodation side, which also is completely separated from the bar trade, and is some distance from the street front, is the major feature of having a car port outside every bedroom.

Page 3

A NOTABLE ACHIEVEMENT

Bill Nelson, Albie Gerbes, Doug Scobie and Jim Boddy had the distinction of being the first paying customers of the hotel. As can be imagined, this required a certain amount of ingenuity and determination as everyone else wanted to be first as well.

“ON THE HOUSE”

To “wet the baby’s head” as it were, the management invited a large number of guests to inspect the new hotel, and to enjoy the hospitality of the Licensee. Among those present were Mr. and Mrs. J. Wattie, and Mr. and Mrs. Franssen of Holland, parents of the Managing Director of the hotel, Mr. J.W.W. Franssen.

Also present was Mr. R.V. Giorgi, Mayor of Hastings, Mr. John McFarlane, General Manager of Leopard Brewery, and Mr. N.C. Harding, Hastings Town Clerk.

Mr. and Mrs. Poppelwell, Mr. Ritchie (Police Inspector of Hastings), and Mrs. Ritchie.

CHARDS of Napier present the NEW ‘DUO’ Hairline

Pat Merrick models the “Hirondellé” variation of the new and exclusive hairline of the Syndicat de la Haute Coiffure Francaise, of which Chards is a member, one of only three such members in New Zealand and the only member south of Auckland. The new line was presented at a special preview to Hawke‘s Bay guests recently.

Shirley Anstis models the versian “Pas de deux’

Six variations of the new season’s style were modelled by Nancy Chard, Raewyn Fairbrother, Eileen Borrows, Shirley Anstis, Pat Merrick and Dawn Wright.

HILLSBROOKE HOME GALA DAY

In the pleasant surroundings of Hillsbrook Home’s grounds at Havelock North, a highly successful Gala Day was held for the raising of funds to assist the children who spend their early schooldays there.

Enjoying their day is Mr. A. S. Leitch of Waipukurau; Mr W. Bowden and Mr. Jim Scott of the Everslie Home

The very practical slide fire escape and the home, is also a tremendous temptation for small boys to misuse. Still, it’s all practice!

Page 7

Happiest boy we found was Brian Kirk from Takapau, who brought along two bantams.

Just too big a day for the treasured possession of one of the children, who will benefit so much from money raised on the day.

Jean Trainor, on the soft drink stand, found there was a ready market for her wares.

There was a steady stream of competitors on to the stage when Sandy Triggs called for ten contestants to take part in the brand new Nestles quiz show, which will be first broadcast early in May. Two half-hour programmes were taped at the Napier presentation which attracted a very large audience.

In the second half, Mrs. Hillary Baird of Napier went through the eliminations to try for the big prize of £480 in cash, and finished up by taking £21 home. The idea is that the contestant starts off with a gift of £15, part or all of which can be “invested” in the first of five questions. In this way a daring contestant could double his or her money five times and receive the £480. On the other hand, if a question is not answered correctly, the contestant loses the sum invested on that question.

Mrs. Lil Crump in the first half was very “canny” with her money, and won £50.

Local announcer Neville Chamberlain acted as stage manager for Sandy Triggs, who at 29, is the youngest quiz compere in NZ.

WAIMARAMA – A BEACH PARADISE

Relaxing on the sands of Waimarama Beach is a favourite Sunday pastime for Hawke’s Bay residents, and is also a popular spot for the fishermen.

Gordon Lewis, of Havelock North, is one fisherman who has a story to tell. He went out on a surf-ski to clear a set-line about 100 yards out from the beach and came back with this shark (and a badly tangled line).

Surf Casting CHAMPS

When surfcasters start a competition they don’t go home until it’s finished. Mr. C. Anderson and Mr. Allan Duncum prepare a snack at 3 am. on Sunday morning during the Pania Surfcasting Club’s annual fishing and casting competitions, held along the Bay View Beach from 3 pm on Saturday to 10 am. on Sunday.

Now there’s something – a reel fitted with a light that switches on when the fish bites. Operator is Mr. George Kilgour.

The catch by 10 am; fifty-nine fish weighing in all 419 lbs., were taken during the competition.

Mr. K. Kennedy receives trophy from Mrs. O. Rees. Mr. Kennedy won the Challenge Trophy for the most casting points gained by a Pania Club member. Mrs. Rees herself won a trophy for the most weight of fish (for ladies only).

Scorekeeper, E.N. Cook of Napier, had an able assistant in his son Allan.

Champion Angler’s Trophy winner, Mr. L. Harris of the Pania Club (for the second year running), pulled one in for “Photo News” – just to show how it’s done!

The competition, the biggest of its kind in N.Z., drew a large entry from Wellington.

ENDURANCE TEST TO CARS IS ELIMINATED

Old road, showing pot-holes, pot-holes and more pot-holes!

A favourite place to test a second-hand, car for rattles before buying was the Napier Kennedy Road railway crossing. Unfortunately, this much-used and abused crossing usually caused the rattles in the first place.
Recently a team of men arrived on the scene and did an excellent job of making the endurance course into one of the smoothest crossings in the district. From left are Joe Kane, Peter Wrightson and Herb Hargrave (on spray-gun).

AWATOTO BLOCK OUTLET

Over a period of years, floodwater pouring out of the old outlet on the foreshore between the “Awatoto Dip” and Napier, plus the action of heavy seas, undermined and destroyed the storm water outlet. Recently our photographer visited the scene of reconstruction where the shingle bank had been built up to protect the construction gang, as at high tide they were working below sea-level.

To ensure that the same thing doesn’t happen again, the storm water pipes are attached to bridge piles driven into the shingle.

NEW Catholic Church AT HAVELOCK NTH

The Havelock North Roman Catholic Church, recently completed and which excited a considerable amount of comment on its unusual design, was blessed and opened before a very large gathering last month.

Over 1000 attended the Opening.

During the ceremony this young fellow decided to get a closer look at the dignataries on the rostrum. From left are the Parish Priest of Hastings, the Rev. Father J.O. Hendren; the Vicar-General of the Wellington Archdiocese, the Very Rev. Monsignor A.J. McRae; and the Very Rev. Monsignor T. Guinane.

The Blessing of the Church.

Woolworth’s Draw your teacher Competition

Graeme Bailey, of 45 May Avenue, Napier, proudly holds his brand-new bicycle won in Woolworths’ New Zealand-wide “Draw Your Teacher” competition. The idea was for competitors to draw their teacher as they saw him on the first day back at school. Teachers weren’t asked to judge the competition – which is perhaps just as well!

Graeme is pictured with his parents (on left), well-wishers, and a group of largely envious school mates.
