COVER PICTURE

Two Hastings lassies who have a fine record of achievement in the National Dancing field behind them are Julie (left) and Marcia Sparks, of Frederick Street, Hastings. Both Julie and Marcia added an impressive list of successes at this year’s Highland Games to their record, with Julie gaining three firsts, two seconds, a third, and taking second place in the New Zealand Highland Fling Championships, to win the Master Bakers’ Challenge Cup awarded for the most points gained in the open class events.

Marcia Sparks practically scooped the pool in the 16- to 18-year-old section, gaining three firsts, three seconds, and winning the New Zealand Reel O’Tullock Championship. Marcia’s cups included the Spurdle Bros. Challenge Cup, the Symon’s Challenge Cup, and first equal for the Master Showmen’s Association Challenge Cup for the competitor gaining the most points at the Games.

Hastings HIGHLAND GAMES

Once again Windsor Park, HastingS, became the mecca of New Zealand’s top sportsmen, pipers, dancers and holiday-makers at Greater Hastings 10th Easter Highland Games, which this year was bigger, better and brighter than ever, with a record number of entries received and brilliantly fine weather to cap it all off. Right up to Good Friday, Hawke’s Bay’s far-famed weather had been anything but the kind that Hawke’s Bayites are wont to boast about, but it seems that a guardian angel was keeping an eye on things, because the manner in which the sun put on its brightest face for the weekend and then disappeared again, apparently for the winter, came very close to being a miracle,.

An inspiring sight as the grand parade moves around the ring.

With the forthcoming Rome Olympics in view, the foremost athletes of New Zealand, were striving to consolidate their position with the selectors and in the 20,000 metres walk, all eyes were on Norman Read who receives a round of applause and encouragement from the girls, as he sets out.

Scratch man, Murray Halberg of Auckland, another “star” attraction at the Games, came home the winner in the “City of Hastings Mile”.

Harsh words by a visiting Australian athletic coach didn’t seem to effect the number of women entries. Closest to the camera is Miss Judith Leppien of Hastings, narrowly winning the first heat of the Hastings Scottish “75” from Miss J. A. Meredith of Wellington.

ODDSHOTS

With an effect similar to an underwater explosion, heavy seas provided a spectacular display recently, as waves crashed against Napier port’s breakwater “mole”, and boiled up high into the air.

The effectiveness of the “mole”, is graphically illustrated in this picture, taken from the new Higgins Wharf, with two trawlers in foreground riding at anchor in the calm waters on the “safe” side of the “mole”.

Display attracted quite a large audience.

Winter coat for “Dianne”

With eight first prizes, one second and one third, plus the “Champion child’s calf” at the Palmerston North Royal Show, Sharon Lean’s calf “Dianne”, of Twyford, doesn’t have to win many more to have a complete winter coat.

Mr. Welsh of Hastings who, last St. George’s Day received the very high Scouting award of the Medal of Merit for outstanding service over the years to the Scouting movement, congratulates Hugh Hutcheson of the 2nd Hastings Cub Pack who has received the twelve badges possible for a Cub to obtain. This is a very rare occurrence for a Cub, and Hugh is to be congratulated for his excellent effort.

At the Cub’s presentations, held at the Hastings Scout Hut, Marie Vincent, Cub Master, presents two proficiency badges to Hugh and to cap the Day off, it was his birthday.

Musical HATS

You have heard of musical chairs, well, this is musical “hats” (with our own captions). The idea being that when one is caught with a hat the offender must recite a nursery rhyme to the count of five. By the way, if you try it at your next party, the more ridiculous the hat the better. (They are not hard to get held of, either.) These photos were taken at Raewyn Troup’s birihday party at Hastings.

Margaret Coombe, “It’s a goal!”

Rosemary Morgan, Barbara Carrington and Patricia Sangster, who says “Good evening, Sir, fancy meeting you here.“

David Mardon, Joyce Mardon, “This hat is just right for you, Madam, and a bargain at only ten guineas.”

Laurence Tassell. “Listen here, chum, one more crack like that, and I’ll push yours down over your ears”

Page 23

Joyce Mardon and Rosemary Morgan. Joyce agrees that “That is a really ridiculous hat.” Possibly a mistake has been made, and that is the hat that Rosemary arrived with.

Mrs. S. Anderson. “Dr. Livingstone? I presume. So glad I was able to find you” .

Judith Harris. ‘Do you think so?”

Raewyn Troup. “It’s been a wonderful party”.

RAILWAY Recording Car

A machine that is kept busy throughout New Zealand, this N.Z. Railways Department “Matisa” track recording car is the only one of its kind in the country, and the only time it stops operating is when it is transported from the North Island to the South Island and when it comes back again.

As the recording car moves along the track, impulses from the bogies extending for and aft of the car are recorded on this complicated-looking piece of apparatus by means of a total of ten pens, all operating at once. Main purpose of the machine is to pinpoint any irregularities of the track for line-repairing gangs. The job of deciphering and analysing all those wiggly lines is undertaken by the Engineering Staff.

Travelling with car are: W.J. Coker, Napier; T.M. Boyd, operater in charge, Wanganui; W.P. Boyd, district engineer of Wellington; Zolo of Wellington; H. Stott, guard; D.W. Gilbertson, of Wanganui; W. Cowley; C.H. Button, senior engineer, of Napier; H.R. Grooby, of Hastings.

H.B. FREYBURG CUP TEAM

The team which will represent Hawke’s Bay at Middlemore for the Freyburg Cup.

Playing at No. 1 is S. G. Jones of Hastings, who without a doubt is the best player in New Zealand – both professional and amateur – and if he can overcome his recent misfortune of receiving a back injury, he will give the Hawke’s Bay team the needed impetus to carry off the Rosebowl supremacy of provincial golf.

Robin Bailey of Dannevirke, the No. 3 player, won the Hawke’s Bay Amateur this year and has represented the province on at least six occasions as well as being Central Hawke’s Bay’s champion for the last four years.

ABOVE RIGHT: Having one of the best records in Freyburg Rose Bowl tournaments, F. T. Gordon of Hastings, is the No. 2 man on the team. He has had 25 wins in six years of Rose Bowl matches, and last year won the H.B. Stroke Championship, including a phenomenal 63, breaking the Hastings Club record.

Hawke’s Bay’s Amateur Champion in 1958, J.M. Dorren of Hastings, playing at No. 4, has been a team member since 1955, and has a record of consistent playing in Rose Bowl matches.

Hastings player I.S. McDonald, the “Baby” of the team, and promoted to No. 5, made a striking debut last year with the excellent result of being beaten only once.

Recently returned from the professional ranks and playing at No.6 is A.W. (Tony) Jensen of Hastings, whose many achievements include the top N.Z. professional honour of N.Z. Open Champion in 1955.

C.J. Grant of Maraenui, Napier, has been on the verge of selection for many years and should prove a valuable asset to the team.

DAWN ON “D” (DUCK) DAY

For those who are keen enough to get up practically before they go to bed, duck shooting is a great sport – while it lasts – and for those unfortunate ducks who are social outcasts and have not been invited to a sanctuary, the morning the shooting season opens is a black one indeed. Our picture shows one of the popular shooting spots at Fernhill, Lake Oinga, dotted with swan and mai mais.

This party was well satisfied with the long wait until dawn. From left, back row: Eric McLeod, Ron McLeod, Boyd Wilson, Rex McLeod and Cyril Cushing; Front: David Compton, Owen Somerset-Smith and Dan McLeod.

Another happy group of hunters: Ossie Potter, Tony Peterson, Jim McIntyre and Henry Peterson.

NAPIER “WATERWORKS” DISPLAY

Why go to Rotorua to see a geyser when Napier turns one on now and again. Kennedy Road, Napier, suddenly produced a “geyser” recently and just as suddenly all the “kids” in the district gathered to view the phenonmenon. The fact that it was merely a burst water main did not make it any less exciting.

“Now let’s see what happens when we put a banana skin in it”.

PRELIM Nurses COURSE NAPIER

Nurses of the current Napier Hospital’s preliminary training course, spend many hours behind the “school” desk during the three months course. To give our readers an idea of what goes on, our photographer paid a visit to the hospital during “school hours”, and on the end of term parents day.

ODDSHOTS

Recently purchased from the estate of the late Miss Edgar for £7250 is the new centre for Napier Baptists, immediately opposite their Church in Clive Square. The house will provide extra classrooms for adult groups and will be used chiefly for the promotion of the All Ages Sunday School scheme early in 1961. The small building on the left will become a nursery and creche where babies and small children will be cared for while parents join in the regular Bible instructions.

The 5th of November came early this year for the Napier Harbour Board, when they set alight the old under-structure trussing used in the pouring of concrete on the No’s 3 and 4 Wharf decking. This was done to salvage the steel for future construction. The heat was so intense that a major fire was only averted by hosing down nearby timber which had started to smoulder. Albie Jane (on hose) and Hector Meen of Napier, keep a watchful eye on things.

NAVY Visit TO NAPIER

Earlier this year H.M.N.Z.S. “Royalist” paid a “meet the people” call to Napier, and by courtesy of the Navy’s local Liaison Officer, our Photo News photographer attended the cocktail party held in the wardroom of the “Royalist”.

New Zealand’s most up-to-date warship “Royalist” was unable to birth during her visit and anchored a mile out in the roadstead. (Regardless of what the Daily Telegraph Press Photographer had to say about it.)

Guests board the “taxi” at the Napier Wharf.

The setting up of ship to shore communications, was necessary to control ferry services to and from the “Royalist”.

A moderately heavy swell made getting aboard a tricky operation.

But along with all the other guests, Miss C. Reeves of Havelock North (with Senior Engineer Lt/Cdr. G. James) considered the risk well worth the effort.

Captain H.D. Steveson R.A.N. and Napier Naval Liaison Officer Mr. Don Bisson, welcomes guests to the ships wardroom.

Indoor BASKETBALL

For the first time since it was built the new Centennial Stadium at McLean Park, Napier, was the venue for representative games of Indoor Basketball. The building gear and equipment seen in foreground has been placed there in preparation for the laying of a wooden floor. An added amenity will be a Mezzanine floor which has also been approved by the City Council.

Ship AHOY!

Mayfair Mothers Club’s 3rd Birthday

Being a photographer has its moments and “Photo News” photographer Roy Batchelor recently had the pleasure, or the ordeal (depending on the individual’s point of view), of covering an all-female function, when the 3rd birthday of the Mayfair Kindergarten Mother’s Club was celebrated at Windsor Lodge, Hastings.

Raureka Club members were in various stages of preparedness when the ship went down.

Even the birthday cake was in keeping with the evening’s “ship-wreck”them.

They are all mothers, but when it comes to “feeding” with a blindfold on – well, that can really get complicated.

Unfortunately, Mrs. Russell, Mrs. Harding, Mrs. Bogle and Mrs. Welch of the Hastings Club, hadn’t even started to get ready when the ship was wrecked.

ON PARADE – ANZAC DAY

NEW HUKARERE BATHS

A swimming instruction demonstration was part of the programme at the opening of the new baths at the Hukarere School, Napier.

The proposed route of the Main North Highway from Napier across the new bridge is at present under construction. The present highway along the embankment is marked with an arrow. At the present time it appears there is to be a “T” intersection on to the bridge approaches from Hyderabad Road. “The Pond” is in the foreground.
