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

DRAMA FESTIVAL, HASTINGS

Three one act plays were presented during the Combined Mothers Clubs’ Annual Drama Festival in the Municipal Theatre, Hastings, recently. The themes chosen were decidedly lighthearted and the crowd received the plays warmly. The cast of the first play “Nothing Legal” is shown above and consists of members of the combined Mayfair and Parkvale Clubs. The producer was Mrs. Hilmary Catton (second from left).

Below left: The part of Agnes, played by Ivy Anderson, seen here being assisted with her makeup by Mrs. F. Lee.

Below right: Busy forging a five pound note is June Jamieson, who played the part of Cynthia.

The cast of the Central-Raureka Clubs line up before presenting their play “Washing Day Welcome”, by Sam Bate. Producer of this delightful comedy was Mr. Hans Fonderie (back row).

Below left: It looks like sparks are to fly any moment as Mrs. O’Reilly gets her Irish up with Mrs. Slaughter, the temporary manageress of a local laundry,

Below right: A scene from the Mayfair-Parkvale play “Nothing Legal”, as Cynthia, the forger, relieves Mrs. Potter of some excess jewellery.

Page 12

“Element of Doubt”, by the Frimley-Mahora group (above), provided a high key of suspense the whole way through the play. The girls of a boarding house backing onto a dark fog-shrouded park set about unravelling a series of mysterious murders and found as their chief suspect one of their own household.

Below left: Three of the cast scrutinise a photograph of the “killer”.

Lower right: Iris gives vent to her feelings about laundry manageresses.

“You broke a bone in your hand, while kissing your husband . . . ” Mrs. Slaughter (right), played by Nelene Palmer, finds this incredible to believe as she questions Marlene (Doris Ross) during an incident in “Washing Day Welcome”.

Below: A scene from “Nothing Legal”, as Mrs. Graham (Evelyn Jenkins), a welfare worker, discusses the assets of the three seemingly dear old sisters who were managing to maintain a thoroughly shady business in their old home.

What a shambles, could well describe the after effects of an exploding chip heater in the home of Mr. and Mrs. A. C. McDonald, Hastings, recently. And it was Mrs. McDonald who had the most fortunate escape from serious injury, for she was standing just beside the washing tub at left when the explosion occurred.

Mrs. J. R. Fear, Havelock North (right), receives a special gift from Mr. W. E. Bate, President of the Board of Trustees of the Hawke’s Bay and Gisborne Savings Bank, upon lodging the 10,000th deposit with the bank recently. Her two daughters, Deborah and Bronwyn are shown at centre.

SPILANE [SPILLANE] CUP

A notable first for the Napier Marist Football Club was the annexing of the Spillane Cup, the premier trophy for North Island Marist Football Clubs. The team is shown after their convincing win over Gisborne Marist.

A fine try to Ian Macrae was the result of quick thinking in their night game against Rotorua Marist.

Marist captain, Tom Johnson, accepts the Spillane Cup from the hands of club captain Peter Jackson.

TENNIS TOURNAMENT

The Annual Easter Tennis Tournament, conducted by the H.B. Lawn Tennis Club, attracted some notable figures, despite the condition of the courts. Posing after their game, were the winner of the ladies single championship, Lyn Holstein, and runner-up Shirley Marchant, both of whom hail, from New South Wales.

Winner of the men’s singles was Richard Hawkes (Wellington), who had a 2 sets to 1 victory over B. Shute (Hutt Valley).

A most practical way of raising money has been organised by the Napier Plunket Society. Having leased the sweet shop at the Municipal Theatre for five years, the Society has organised a roster of its members who man the sweet stall, and all profits go to the Plunket Society. Shown awaiting intermission are, from left: Mesdames D. C. Lawlor, R. Bourgeois, B. Gleeson and D. Brebner.

The first investiture ceremony of the newly-formed Napier No. 1 Senior Guide Company was held recently. This new group of guides in the 14-16 year age group, are pictured in their smart new uniforms. They are, from left: Ann O’Donnell, Pamela O’Donnell, Beverley Willis, Ann Carpenter, Elizabeth Dowling, Robyn Kerr and Mary Tindall.

WE TRAIN TO SERVE

A.T.C.EXERCISE

The motto of the A.T.C. rang true, when members of No. 13 Squadron, Air Training Corps., Napier, went into outdoor training during a week-end camp held at Makahu recently. The possibility of an A.T.C. Cadet not surviving in the bush is ruled out by adventure training, which is a major factor of their annual training syllabus.

A “casualty” – cadet Morgan – is found in the bush and is being rendered “first aid” before being transported by improvised stretcher to base

Deepsea anglers in Hawke’s Bay had their appetites whetted recently when the curator of the Aquarium, Mr. Dine, pulled this injured broad-bill swordfish from the breakers at Westshore, confirming the predictions of many authorities that good sporting fish abound off Hawke’s Bay. The fish, which was apparently gashed by the propellor of a ship, was taken to the Dolphin Pool for display, and later a plaster cast was taken from the fish.

A bust of Major-General Sir Andrew Russell, former General Officer commanding the First New Zealand Division, was unveiled on Anzac Day in the Hastings Public Library. Messrs. Dick and Bob Libby, Hastings carpenters, are shown at work fixing the bust in position on the south wall of the foyer.

ANZAC JUBILEE REUNION

Approximately 600 Napier Ex-Servicemen from both World Wars gathered at the Centennial Hall, McLean Park, Napier, for an ANZAC Reunion, at which veterans from the first World War were guests of those who fought in the 2nd World War. Shown here are three Guests of Honour who were Nursing Sisters in France, Belgium and England, during the War of 1914-18. They are, from left: Mrs. Jillie (NZ. Army Nursing Service 1915-18), Miss L. Davey (Queen Alexandra’s Imperial Nursing Service 1916-18) and Mrs. Harwood (NZ. Army Nursing Service 1917-18).

These ANZAC veterans, now residents of James Foley Ward, who renewed old friendships, are George Sowden, Bert Robertson, F. M. Sutherland and Jim Ray.

Page 25

Among those who came to honour the name of ANZAC were Rex Astwood, Bill Johnson and Tim Neville.

Enjoying a drink and reliving old memories were Clarrie Armstrong, Dick Heading, Colin Haymen and Peter Ramsay.

TO BAKE A CAKE

Imagination ran riot during a wind-up to the 10-week cake decorating class at the Hastings night school recently. The decorated cakes ranged from round shapes to elegantly coloured flower boxes and pink dolls. The judges (below) had a difficult task to select the winners of the two sections. However, they reached a decision and the awards went to Mrs. E. L. Corbett (top left), winner of the advanced section, and Miss M. Jamie (top right), winner of the novice section with her novel decoration of a Diploma of Home Science.

The judges were Mrs. M. Keith (left), Mr. J. Smeath (second on right), and Mr. F. Jones (extreme right). Wearing the White coat is Mr. G. Denys, instructor of the class.

PYGMALION

“Pygmalion”. This famous play by George Bernard Shaw will be presented by the pupils of Colenso High School in the school auditorium for a season of three nights, commencing on May 29th. Produced by Miss Diane Carr, the school is confident of a successful presentation. Here and on the following page we present excerpts from the show. “You done this ‘Enry Iggins”. The cast from left is, Professor Higgins (Peter Freedman), Doolittle (Glyn Jeffery), Mrs. Doolittle (Elizabeth Dowling) and Colonel Pickering (John Smythe.)

“You’d ‘ad a drop in” Eliza (Gaylene Preston) accuses Professor Higgins.

Eliza finally sits down after being ordered to by the Professor.

“I want my daughter, see!”

Part of the scene of Eliza’s entrance. The school is indeed fortunate to have a leading lady with such a mature stage presence as Gaylene Preston, and after seeing this dress rehearsal, we are sure the play will be presented to a capacity audience.

Despite her failure to complete the distance due to a heavy cold and a choppy sea, Miss Revell was given a rousing reception by a crowd of approximately 1,000 people. Miss Revell is seen leaving the water with Keith Hancox and members of the Westshore Surf Life Saving Club who paced her and swam as a relay over the final part of the distance.

HASTINGS CIVIL DEFENCE EXERCISE

This was the grim spectacle in Heretaunga Street, Hastings, that greeted members of the Civil Defence units during the recent simulated aircrash over the city. Smoke and flames belch from the burning interior of a car which was struck by one of the falling planes. Portions of aircraft were draped over the balcony and protruding portions of the Assembly Hall, marking the path of the descending aircraft. The realism was carried a step further by the dropping of large concrete splinters and rocks on the roadway.

Below: Firemen put up a curtain of water on nearby buildings to limit the spread of the devastation.

15th HIGHLAND GAMES

Although entries were down slightly on previous years, summer-like weather and temperatures brought spectators out in near-record numbers when Hastings staged its 15th Highland Games. Highlights were the appearances of Olympians Bill Baillie, John Davies and Des Thompson, and the final Hawke’s Bay appearance of Olympic and world record holder, Peter Snell. Here we show some wee Scots lassies taking part in the March Past.

Noted for his thoughtfulness almost as much as his athletic ability, personable Peter Snell is seen chatting to 95-year-old Mrs. Porter of Hastings, who had expressed a keen desire to meet the Olympic champion.

Archery was as popular as ever with the ladies.

K. Flower (Taihape) had little difficulty in winning the junior women’s 220 yards.

Olympic representative, Des Thompson (Wellington) practically scooped the pool in the cycling events.

NEW WHARF PROGRESS

Another milestone was passed in the construction of Napier’s new wharf recently, when the first concrete pile was sunk. To reach the pile driving gantry, the pile has to be removed from the huge stack (top left) and transported by railway crane to a tractor-drawn trolley and thence to the shipping wharf where it was transferred to a barge and towed to the driving rig.

Below: The large pile strapped to the driving rig ready for insertion into the seabed.

DEMOLITION

Take the strain . . . pull . . . and over she comes. The top picture of the old Donbank guesthouse in Avenue Road, Hastings, was taken a few seconds before the building toppled over in a cluod [cloud] of dust and flying splinters, recently. The old dwelling, a familiar landmark in Hastings, was built for the Blake family in 1888.
