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

OUR COVER PICTURES

Front Cover. Surrounded by a sea of beautiful French fabrics is lovely Hastings model Holly Porteous. The fabrics are part of a consignment from French fashion houses, which will be used by designer Rosewitha Robertson to create the all French fashion show, at Napier’s forthcoming International Exhibition in June.

Back Cover. View of the Waikato River, with the start of the white water of the Aratiatia Rapids in the foreground, a rare sight these days.

Five generations are represented in this photograph of a Hastings family. For Mrs E.L. Hunt (front) however, this could be repeated many times over for she has in fact nine great great grandchildren. Mrs. Hunt is holding on her knee baby Marie Louise Voisin, the daughter of Mrs. B. Voisin (extreme left). Her mother is Mrs. N. Bell of Taradale (right) and her mother is shown in the centre top, Mrs. C. Epplett, Pakowhai Road. Mrs. Epplett’s mother must of course be Mrs. Hunt. Mrs. Hunt, at a sprightly 84 years, has a retentive memory and has vivid impressions of the 1897 flood that devastated the plains of Hawke’s Bay. In this flood Mrs. Hunt worked in relief work at Clive, which was a sorely hit area.

ROVING CAMERA

A memorable occasion in the life of Dr. D. A. Bathgate of Hastings (left) will undoubtedly be the receiving of the coveted Loder Cup which he received from Mr. Duncan MacIntyre, M.P., at a function in the Municipal Chambers recently. The Loder Cup is awarded annually and is offered to “lovers of nature in New Zealand to encourage the protection and cultivation of the incomparable flora of the Dominion”.

Delegates to the Museums and Art Galleries Association’s conference listen to the opening address by His Worship the Mayor of Napier, Mr. Peter Tait. In the front row at right, is the director of the Napier Gallery and Museum, Mr. J. S. B. Munro, and beside him (extreme right) is Mr. Harold Holt, a benefactor of the Museum from Napier.

WHILE A CITY SLEEPS

Whilst the City of Napier sleeps, during the hours of darkness, there are people rendering many services which are maintained 24 hours per day. Photo News recently joined some of these people on night duty and recorded on film a variety of the jobs that many members of the public take for granted and seldom give a second thought.

Though not all night services have been reproduced on these pages, readers can see some of the work which goes on in the “wee sma’[small] hours” whilst the city sleeps.

Shunting through the night in an endeavour to ensure that goods reach their destinations on time are, from left: Graham Lawlor, Bob Young and Tom Gannaway.

Our daily bread, taken so much for granted, means many hours of labour to Messrs. Eric Rennet and A. W. Barnes, shown taking fresh bread from the ovens.

Joe Cook, a boatman and night watchman for the Harbour Board, checks to see that hawsers have the correct tension.

At the M.E.D. Power Station, we find Mr. R. McLeod closing an O.C.B. switch, to one part of the City, which had been opened.

The Police maintain law and order as well as protect the public and their property 24 hours a day. At left is Constable N. R. Apatu checking the lock-up and right, the Patrol goes out with Constable P. Byrne at the wheel and Sergeant J. Wheeler.

Constable F. Roff and “Luger” do their nightly rounds of the service lanes.

Checking that all doors in the City are securely locked is Constable G. Newcombe.

Maintaining the vital link in the emergency call organisation is the telephone exchange, which when Photo News called was still busy attending to toll and information services. So the next time you ask for tolls, the girl with the golden voice could be Sue Campbell, shown here with Mr. Max La Broome.

An emergency 111 call brought the St. John Ambulance down to the Harbour Board Wharf to take a sick seaman to Hospital.

Fireman Trevor Barnett on duty in the Watchroom of the Napier Fire Brigade, takes his turn on the 7 p.m. to 7 am. night shift.

Nurses and Hospital staff, a team of wide awake people, keep watch over critically ill patients, tending to various needs and reassuring those made sleepless by pain, uncertainty and strange surroundings. Though no emergencies eventuated when your photographer arrived, routine duties were being carried out as punctiliously as ever. Nurse M. Bryant adjusts the drip feed flow for Mr. Harris.

Nurse. P. Berry takes an hourly blood pressure test on a seriously ill patient.

Nurse Y. Hill watches over one of her charges in the Children’s Ward.

FASHION FOR MEN

A Fashion Parade with a difference was held recently by Poppelwell’s Mens Wear of Hastings. Held in conjunction with the National Fashions for Men Week, the parade attracted a large crowd of both men and women.

Kevin selects an Italian Suit in light grey, pointers: Slim line, natural shoulder line and 14 1/2″  cuffless bottoms.

David is more conservative in his National three button suit in pure wool, complemented with a Battersby hat.

Page 18

Daryl chose a brushed Bri-Nylon shirt and stretch slacks, and a Dr. Kildare cardigan for informal weekend wear.

Michael wears a pure wool green cardigan, an attractive light wool shirt and synthetic slacks.

Daryl’s three-quarter length suede jacket with heavy lining, Jet set bulky sweater and fine pin cord trousers, makes fun of winter weather.

Phillip shows that Poppelwell’s also cater for the younger teenager, with this smart boy’s Italian style suit.

The latest in tuxedos is modelled by Daryl. A midnight blue jacket in mohair wool, tastefully complemented with plain black evening trousers and an unusual bow tie.

A casual Burgundy shirt, Bri-Nylon stretch slacks by Hole-proof, and a Tekau blue wool cardigan was chosen by Kevin for attractive leisure wear.

MICRO WAVE TEST

An invitation was extended to the motoring public by the Traffic Department of the Napier City Council to test speedometers, Many motorists took advantage of this and there were one or two surprised faces amongst the drivers. We show here a car approaching the Patrol Car whilst Traffic Officer D. Robson keeps an eye on the meter.

Shown discussing the result of his test run with Traffic Officer Robson is Mr. N. R. Wells.

ANTIQUE ARMS DISPLAY

Two Hawke’s Bay antique arms enthusiasts, Mr. J. Turnbull of Napier and Mr. S. Waugh of Dannevirke, recently held an exhibition of these arms in conjunction with a dangerous weapons campaign. Many of the weapons dating back nearly two centuries and from many lands provided an interesting “museum”.

One of the quickest ways known to lose a friend – handing over a loaded shotgun. Duckshooters take note! ! ! Bruce Waugh (left) and John Turnbull demonstrate the way not to pass a shotgun!

PLAYCENTRE WORKSHOP

It was “back to school” for 40 mothers recently, when they attended a Play-centre Workshop at Haumoana. Organised by the Central Districts Play Centre Association, training sessions such as this, instruct mothers to be supervisors in their own play-centres. Pictured here are a group of mothers being instructed in the purpose of “story-time” and the value of different types of books.

Mrs. Tibbles and Mrs. Bayliss (standing) practice college [collage] work on cardboard containers.

The Haumoana Mothers had the mammoth job of feeding the forty women, and here we show Mrs. A. Macdonald and Mrs. N. Pere cheerfully peeling the potatoes.

IN SILHOUETTE

The recent opening of Hawke’s Bay’s own Silhouette Health Studios will provide a boon for the overworked businessman and the harassed housewife. Built at a cost of £20,000 the studio has every facility for acquiring and maintaining a high standard of fitness for the average person. The popularity of the studio is such, that after only a matter of three weeks of opening, Silhouette can claim a membership of 300 women and approximately 200 men. Here we show a general view of the interior of the studio.

These cycling machines shown being used by Trevor Bates and Robert Mercer, under the guidance of instructor Ivan Cameron, are used primarily as a warming up exercise. Sauna baths are also a feature of this establishment.

Page 40

A wonderful way of getting off that excess poundage is the Vibrator Belt, being used here by George Denford. The Silhouette Studios cater for people in all age groups.

Instructor Graeme Gardiner explains the proper use of this shoulder development machine to Ken Whyte. Originating from Canada and the U.S.A., membership of Silhouette Studios is fully interchangeable anywhere in the world.

A Napier man, Mr. Eric Stewart Graham, was burnt to death in this car when it caught on fire after crashing on the main highway near Tangoio recently. Police believe Mr. Graham was knocked unconscious when the car struck a pole and then careered into a bank coming to rest in the centre of the road and bursting into flames. The car was a total loss.

INDOOR BASKETBALL

The Indoor Basketball season is once again in full swing. In the Junior section, with six teams in the under-15 year old boys, and 12 teams in the under-18 boys’ and girls’ divisions, the enthusiasm made up for any deficit in skill. Pictured in progress in the Napier Centennial Stadium is a game between two N.G.H.S. teams.

RUGBY BY FLOODLIGHTS

Rugby under floodlights attracted a large crowd to McLean Park, recently, when a game was played between a Hawke’s Bay 15 versus an Invitation team. The game ended in a draw, eight all. This is the scene as the players got under way in the first spell (top).

CIVIL DEFENCE EXERCISE, HASTINGS

“Earthquake and fire” destroyed much of Hastings recently, necessitating the evacuation of the city. That was the theme of the Civil Defence exercise which gave employment to some 500 odd pople [people] mainly designed to test the efficiency of sector wardens, welfare, transport supply and communication sections. The chief organiser for the Hastings Civil Defence team, Mr. J. K. Agnew (left), talks with Mr. Krebs, town clerk, and others at headquarters during the exercise.
