14th HASTINGS HIGHLAND GAMES

Brilliantly fine weather highlighted the Fourteenth Hastings Highland Games, the major Easter attraction for athletes, pipers and dancers. Star athletes Bill Baillie, John Davies, Norman Read, and cyclist Des Smith, added lustre to the record number of entries from all parts of New Zealand for all events.

Colourful and popular as ever, the Scottish country dancing drew continued applause.

U.S.S. “REDFISH” VISIT

The United States submarine “Redfish” approached the central wharf at the port of Napier for the start of its three day visit recently. A crowd of some 500 greeted the arrival and braved a cold blustery wind early in the morning. On board the “Redfish”, after boarding the sub. at sea, was Captain Barker (second from right), Harbour Master at Napier, pictured in conversation with officers of the “Redfish” on the conning tower.

H.B. REGIMENT’S LAST PARADE

The New Zealand Army is to undergo a complete reorganisation, taking effect from 1st April, 1964. At the annual training camp of the Hawke’s Bay Regiment, a ceremonial parade was held to mark the amalgamation of the H.B. Regiment with the Wellington Regiment to form the 7th Battalion of the Royal New Zealand Infantry Regiment. The headquarters of this new unit will be at the Army Hall, Owen Street, Napier. Guest speakers at the parade were the Mayors of Napier and Wellington, who also inspected the troops.

HENRY HILL SCHOOL OFFICIALLY OPENED

The best part of the opening, according to the small fry, was the ice cream afterwards.

HOLTS
just the place to buy paints (DULUX Paints)
You may need a bit of time when buying paint. There’s the right paint to choose (and Holts have a DULUX paint for every purpose) and there’s the right colour (Holts have hundreds of lovely DULUX colours). There’s the right advice you’ll need and this you’ll surely get from Holts friendly, knowledgeable paint experts.
Holts is a good place in which to buy paints, plenty of space in the store to shop in comfort, and plenty of space outside for car-parking.
ARE YOU PAINT-LAZY?
Keep summer days free by painting your house now with DULUX Lo-Gloss.
Dries in 20 minutes, second coat can be applied within an hour.
Can be used in damp uncertain weather conditions and so easy to use that a normal house could be painted on a weekend. Or you can paint after work, even dewfall won’t affect Lo-Gloss. And tough and durable DULUX Lo-Gloss is an acrylic plastic – you may not need to paint again for seven years or more.
For inside walls and ceilings use DULUX Super-Latex – another so easy-to-use DULUX paint.
DULUX LO-GLOSS IS YOUR PAINT

JAPANESE CHILDREN’S ART

Children examine a selection of paintings which have been loaned on an exchange basis between the Napier Central and Intermediate Schools and a primary school in Tokyo, Japan. The exchange, one of many planned for the future, was organised by the Japan Society of Hawke’s Bay.

Art Mistress, Mrs. Nicolle of the Napier Intermediate School, points out the more important features of two of the paintings to members of her class.

AN ACCIDENT FREE MAY 1st IS IT POSSIBLE?

May the 1st is to be “Accident Free Day”, and it is hoped that everybody will take extra care on this day to avoid causing an accident, and also on the 364 days to next “Accident Free Day”.  Pictured on these pages are some of the things that can lead to an accident, so please remember –

“Stay Alert – Stay Alive”

Perhaps not an offence, but dangerous for young children.

It is a lot safer to place parcels into a car from the near side.

Young children play anywhere – and the rear of a car about to reverse is as good as anywhere.  It pays to pass round the rear of your car if you are going to reverse.

Overtaking against fast approaching traffic – a killer, this one.

Driving on the wrong side of the road – this car was not overtaking the one from which the photograph was taken.

All these pictures, with the exception of one, were taken through the windscreen of a Traffic Department patrol car.

Jay-walking is dangerous. Drivers don’t always see pedestrians at busy intersections.

Riding four abreast – a bad practice which leads to accidents.

One can almost hear this boy say “Chicken” as he goes through a compulsory stop and across the path of on-coming traffic.

WINTER SPORTS GET UNDER WAY

FERNHILL SCHOOL GALA AND OFFICIAL OPENING OF SCHOOL BATHS

The Fernhill School Gala, held a short time ago, coincided with the opening of the school baths. Built by voluntary labour, this swimming pool culminated two years’ work by the local residents and should prove a decided asset for the pupils. A large crowd, willing helpers and good organisation contributed to a first class gala. Above: Speeches have to be endured.

The produce stall did a roaring trade.

N.Z. HORSE SOCIETY EQUESTRIAN SHOW

Walking the course to familiarise themselves with the jumps are a few of the riders who took part in the New Zealand Horse Society’s equestrian show at Tomoana Showgrounds recently. They are, from left: Val Bantram, Carolyn Law and Tony Webb.

If it’s good enough for the riders to have a look over the fences as they walk the course, what about the horses, too? This seems to be the case with Sure Fox, photographed on his haunches when he refused this fence during the Puissance Competition for A grade horses.

Page 47

The winner of the Puissance Competition on the second day was Glen Dhu, ridden by Ian Grattan of Owhango.  Below:  Glen Dhu cleared the brick wall when placed at 6ft. 2in. – only 2¾in. below the N.Z. record.  Six-footer Mr. Warwick Shooter (right) and Mr. C. Bolgar are dwarfed by the wall.

NEW HASTINGS CHURCHES

Two distinctively different styles are being used in the building of the new St. John’s Presbyterian Church, Frederick Street (left), and the Hastings Baptist Church (below) on Karamu Road.

St. John’s Church is to cost ahout  £14,000 and is being undertaken by the contractor Mr. J. W. Linnell, Hastings. The maximum seating capacity will be 250, allowing for both the choir and cloakrooms. The main auditorium has been built on two huge triangular trusses of steel, leaning together and supporting the central portion of the roof.

The new Baptist Church is to be built at a cost of £31,000 and when completed will seat some 600. The building will be two-storeyed at the back and incorporates a balcony which will seat 120. Another unusual feature of the new church is the elevated baptistry which is sited some 10 feet above floor level and can be seen from all parts of the church.

MOTORISTS –
– Take a Tip from ROBBIE

Flooding causes rough engine rotating and heavy fuel consumption.  Check the carburettor adjustments and in particular, the float level.  Make sure the float has not been punctured. Petrol entering the float causes it to become heavier of course and results in an increased float level.

Although it rarely happens, the little flat spring on the top of the ignition distributor rotor may be broken. A makeshift repair can be made by using a paper clip bent and held in place by the screw on the rotor. It may run your car for several miles until you can get to a garage or service station.

If you want to stay young, just associate with young people.  If you want to get old in a hurry, just try to keep up with them.

Detonation or “pinging” is caused by carbon deposits in the combustion chamber. To remedy, remove the cylinder head and decarbonise.

To err is human, but when you wear out the eraser before the pencil, you’re overdoing it.

If you look after your battery properly you will get maximum life out of it.  Check level of electrolyte regularly and top up each cell with distilled water.  Don’t over-fill;  a quarter of an inch above the top of the plates is any amount.  If the terminals become corroded disconnect the clamps and soak them in a solution of warm water and baking soda.  One teaspoonful of soda to a cup of water should be sufficient.  Clean the lead battery posts with steel wool and smear them with heavy grease or vaseline before refitting the clamps.
