TWISTING ROUND THE CLOCK

On Wednesday, April 4th last, at the James Banquet Lounge, a Twist Marathon that created an enormous amount of interest started, the hall being packed with folk of all stages during most of the 24 hours of each day. The young were there to encourages their favourites and take part in the twisting and the not-so-young to see for themselves what this twisting was all about. Above the contestants start on their long twist to nowhere.

The three main contestants from left to right, Herbie Pawhau, Tommy Taewa and Gary McIntyre.

Twelve hours later, contestants were still going strong and had been joined by many pace-makers.

This photo taken recently is of Wi Kainamu, an old identity and well known figure in Central Hawke’s Bay. At 75 years of age he is probably one of the oldest scrub cutters around. He is pictured in front of his “camp” at Blackburn, Waipawa.

SEARCH & RESCUE OP.

Heretaunga Tramping Club members, accompanied by two representatives of the police and the emergency radio corps, about to set out on a recent search and rescue exercise from which valuable lessons were learnt. In the two day operation a large area of difficult country was covered in a search for a missing deerstalker. A few widely scattered clues had been laid by other members a week previously. Searchers, working in heavy rain and often poor visibility managed to find the lost person within 36 hours.
Photos by P. Lewis.

In the search operations, radio played an important part. Here a report is sent back to base by one of the specially designed radios used for this type of work. The N.Z. designed sets weigh 15 lbs and are very rugged.

T-Q CARS AND MO’BIKES

T.Q. midget cars and speedway bikes are proving a great success with the public at their Kennedy Road track, and “Photo News” recently paid a visit to record some of the incidents of this thrilling sport.

SCHOOL FOR MODELS

This new school, recently opened in Hastings is proving a boon to girls wishing to learn the arts of make-up, modelling and hair styling, and even if the scope for professional models is rather restricted there is plenty of room for the trained part-time model. The school also teaches the girl who does not necessarily want to take up fashion or photographic modelling, how to use make-up correctly and also how to stand and sit properly. Above, Miss Laurel Daley (Principal) shows her class how to place their feet.

Hair styling being demonstrated.

LITTLE THEATRE

With the opening of the new Little Theatre (in McGrath Street) of the Napier Repertory Players, the theatre going public of the district will have a greater opportunity of seeing work of an experimental and controversial nature which would otherwise be denied them, as well as the normal type of play and comedy. The theatre is small and comfortable, being centrally heated, also the acoustics are surprisingly good.

MODEL RAILWAY

Model railway enthusiasts will no doubt be interested in this layout of young David McNiven’s of Marewa. It differs a lot from most layouts, in that David is not so much interested in the running of the models as he is in the scenic surround. In this layout, the country alongside the tracks is most realistic. Well over half of the equipment and buildings were designed and built by David himself.

The young man who started it all.

PASSION PLAY in Hawke’s Bay

On this and the following pages we present a number of pictures of the Passion Play presented recently in Hastings. We place no captions on the pictures as we feel the story is known by us all. We would like to congratulate the producer Mrs. Mary Clarke for a very fine production. To the cast, whose identity must remain anonymous we can only say they played their parts with feeling and humility. The interpretation of this very moving story was carried out with understanding and restraint.

FASHION FROLICS

When the Napier Lodge of the M.U.I.O.O.F. entertained their fellow Lodge from Gisborne at a recent social evening, a very important parade of fashions was held. It is said that the organisers scoured the province for the very best models to wear their fabulous creations, in fact it looks as if they had been scouring for a number of years. Above we see Alfreda (Alf Wakely), Davetta (Dave Mayhew), Harryanna (Harry Walker) and Billie (Bill Stephen).

SCOUTS FIELD DAY

Over twenty scout troops from all parts of Hawke’s Bay gathered at Tomoana Showgrounds recently to take part in their annual field day.

The object of a day such as this was to test the boys skill, ingenuity and leadership in the various tasks (which had to be completed within a certain time) set them.

Members of the Red Shield group attempt the crossing of a stream without getting wet. Robert Lawrence is seen here swinging a staff tied to a pole from one bank to the other.

Members of the 2nd Hastings Troop prepare to erect a tent in record time. The area Field Day trophy has been won by this troop over the past two years.

Another task set the boys, was to recover a radioactive object from a pond without getting closer that eight feet. Members of the 1st Wairoa Patrol made a very ingenious sling on staves, which proved very successful.

AROUND THE PARTIES

Someone started it, “Photo News” published it, now everybody is doing it. Novelty games are fast becoming a fashion at 21st birthdays and other parties these days and through the courtesy of Batchelors Studios we present a trip around some recent parties.

The “Can Can” male version.

Page 44

A visitor to the bar of the Rangitaiki Hotel on the Taupo Plains, may well wonder at all the monies pinned to the ceiling. This scheme was started some years ago by a previous proprietor and the story is that, customers are invited to pin a note on the ceiling and once a year these are gathered up and given to a charity. In the picture above, Mr. George Studd is seen starting to remove the notes collected this year. George, who is secretary-treasurer of the H. B. Intellectually Handicapped Children Parent’s Association has been given this year’s collection for his association.

Notes from all countries find their way to the ceiling during the course of the year and you will always see at least one ten pound note which is given regularly each year by the same donor. Below we see Mr. Jack Dance starting off the new collection which will go to another charity next year.

PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE

Shane Mitchell seems to approve.

“Photo News” recently paid a visit to a Napier Clinic to witness the small fry being given their new oral polio vaccine and from what we saw they loved it. We would urge all mothers to have their children immunised, even if it does mean walking junior half a mile to the nearest clinic.

Allison Bennett is more interested in the nurse.

Shelly Kim Johnson, not too sure, but all was well.

Christine Hagen is a little more apprehensive.

HASTINGS SCHOOL GALA

The gala held recently by the Hastings Intermediate School, proved very successful with more than 200 pounds being raised towards a filtration plant for the school baths.

The gala started with a first class fancy dress procession, the best we have seen for many a long day.

The fire engine was a great draw for the small fry.

Vic Boag, late of St. Trinians, made a very fetching figure while extracting “lolly” from the cash customers.

When the Napier United Croquet Club celebrated its 40th anniversary recently, eight members paraded in old-time frocks, much to the amusement of the spectators. From Left to right they are, Mesdames Petherick, Hynes, Horniblow, O’Neill, Bradley, Lee, Miss Merritt and Mrs M. Fulford.

After the official opening several games of golf croquet were played and here we see Mesdames Lee, Bradley, Fulford and Miss Merritt intent on their game.

PAST and PRESENT

Yet another view of Napier taken in the 20’s, by the late Horace Cotterell, before Clive Square (centre of picture) was made so picturesque. Some of the landmarks are easily found, such as the Manual Training Centre (lower R.H. corner), St Patrick’s Church, and the Forrester’s Hall, now the R.S.A. Note the hoardings on the corner of Dickens and Munroe Streets.

This more recent picture, taken from approximately the same angle shows the same part of the city as it is today.
