Headmistress Farewelled

Miss A. Naumann M.A. retiring headmistress of Napier Girls’ High School, holds up a necklace just presented to her by head prefect, Jennfier McKenzie. This was at a farewell function given Miss Naumann in the new school assembly hall. The girls sang her songs and presented a play based on Alice in Wonderland called “A Modern Mad Tea Party”.

In it, Cara Ferguson played the part of one of the masters at the school, Mr. R. de R. Worker.

Miss Naumann was also presented with a lovely bunch of flowers by the deputy head prefect, Anne Fairey.

Looking down the assembly hall as the girls sang.

This plague [plaque] tells the story of the mural on the rear wall of the Napier Girls’ High School assembly hall. It was painted by Miss Rita Angus, a former resident of Napier, who now lives in Wellington. The assembly hall built a few months ago has along been needed at the school to replace an old small structure which has done duty for half a century.

THIS MURAL IS IN HONOUR OF THOSE WHOSE COURAGE BUILT THIS COMBINED SCHOOL MATERIALLY AND SPIRITUALLY AFTER THE EARTHQUAKE OF FEBRUARY 3RD 1931 AND IS IN MEMORY OF THE GIRLS OF THE NAPIER TECHNICAL COLLEGE WHO DIED AS A RESULT OF THAT EARTHQUAKE.

This is the remains of the 1957 model Vanguard belonging to Mr. and Mrs. Terry Hegarty, Barton Avenue, Napier, after a rough Tasman crossing on the Huddart Parker vessel Wanganella. No chocks were placed beneath the wheels and only light ropes were used to lash it to stanchions between decks. Because there were animals in the same hold, the hatches were left partly off and salt water badly damaged the engine and interior. The Hegartys have little chance of compensation as the shipping company takes no responsibility for such damage. The cost of repairs will be £400.

Go-ahead Napier schoolgirls recently used part of their holiday to raise £3 for Dr Barnardo’s Homes. Serving customers at their stall are Margaret Grant, Tony and Karen Goile (visitors from Whakatane) Saleigh Hunt, Jennifer Tarplett (it was her idea), Barbara Allen and Lynette Garnham.

SOME NEW FACES

To keep you cool this Winter we held over these shots of bathing beauties who paraded during the Napier Personality Campaign. Some faces and figures are familiar – other are revealed in “Photo News” for the first time.

And the girls who took the prizes. Diane Blackford (Personality entrant for the Motor Trade) third, diminutive Margaret Kersey who has won several local beauty parades, second, and Fay Gollop, Pakowhai, first.

The judges confer – Major R. W. Collins and Mrs. Dawn Wright check over the finer points.

POLITICIAN?

The name could easily be applied to our beloved Members of Parliament, but in this case the Spoutmaster is a machine in the workshop of A. W. Holder and Sons, Hastings, which turns out continuous lengths of guttering. It can put through 2000 feet an hour under ideal conditions, but Holder’s find it’s much less in a limited workshop where frequent stops must be made for cutting. They cut off their longest length – 63 feet – recently, when it butted the neighbour‘s fence, but it’s still something to spout about.

Entertainers

This attractive quartet entertained recently at Cabaret Cabana in an “out-of-season” mannequin parade. The two men, Ken Rogers and Bernie Gamet, are two well-known entertainers in the Napier district. Their partners were un-named.
MacConnells Photo Service

It’s good to see young entertainers coming to the fore in Hawke‘s Bay, and doing something constructive with their leisure time. Doug Farquhar, Trevor Ruffell and Pete Harris have made a start entertaining at school dances and Bible Class functions as the Troubadors. We wish them luck.

Let’s all go to Sunday School

A big step forward was recently taken by the Napier Baptist Church when it began all age Sunday School at 9.45 on a morning in March. Just on 200 people of all ages attended that first morning session. Since then the numbers have increased. Those attending listened to a brief opening address by the Reverend Rex Goldsmith before going to their various classes, where they split up into age groups. The oldest member, Mr. Hunter, aged 84, is in the front pew.

Some of the leaders of the new Sunday School at the opening service. From left they are: Len Gerken, Adult Superintendent; Harley Taylor, General Secretary; the Rev. Rex. Goldsmith, M.A.; Doug Fraser, General Superintendent; Miss Barbara Weston, Assistant Secretary; and Edgar Jones, Junior and Intermediate Superintendent.

In all there are 28 leaders and teachers who meet every Wednesday night to prepare their programme for the following Sunday morning. £8000 and much labour have been spent to provide the necessary accommodation and facilities for the project.

LONG BEER

This elongated beer-drinker was snapped in the act by A. W. Colley, now of Napier, when he was an excise-officer in Edinburgh. The African woman, a member of Bertram Mills Circus visiting the city, was called in with pygmies and others to provide publicity shots for the Indian and African markets of Jeffrey’s Lager Brewery. The “choker” is worn all the time as neck muscles grow so weak they will not support the head without it.

Search for a Kiwi

This is the creature we all represent,
Or round perhaps the other way;
No matter, the point is our brave government
Has spared him in Hawke’s Bay.

They found him in bush near the Ta-u-po Road
Not far from Te Pohue Pub;
Or at least all the signs that he usually showed,
Feathers, beak holes in scrub.

At this point we have a confession to make:
This wingless bird is not quite right.
But still we’re assured, tho’ the photo’s a fake
Ki-wi cries there at night.

Photographer Phil Moore

John Wills, who farms with his brother Brian on the old coach road a few miles from Te Pohue stands amongst kanuka on Forest Service land not far from their farm. John and Brian are both keenly interested in preserving the kiwis they know exist in this block which was marked down for burning and afforestation. Through their and other naturalists’ efforts the area has been set aside as a reserve. Most of it is encompassed in the gorge seen opposite but the brothers have found signs of kiwis in this stand of kanuka quite near the road.

Some of the beak holes made by the kiwi as he digs for bush worms with his long beak. To enlarge the hole he levers his beak sideways making it funnel-shaped. Fine leaves falling from the kanuka soon fill the holes again, but a stick can be poked four or five inches into any one of them. The original worm holes which the kiwi enlarges are neither as wide or as deep.

Page 12

The grubs and worms in the left hand were found very quickly in a few handfuls of humus. There would seem to be ample food for kiwis in this location. These two birds – a North Island robin and a fantail, kept us company when John Wills took “Photo News” into the valley recently.

These are just five of the many kiwi feathers the Wills brothers have picked up over a long period. Most have since been handed on to naturalists and the authorities investigating the reserve. The fine texture of the feathers would not last long in rainy country – just another indication that kiwis are there in some numbers.

These feathers, for comparison, were collected fresh from the Game Farm, Greenmeadows. Our model on page 10 also came from there.

A peculiar situation arose during the prizegiving when Mr. Fred Hutchins, assistant secretary, and Mr. W. H. Wimsett, assistant chairman had to present each other with trophies. They were not the judges.

HARDHITTERS

T. Harbottle, Hastings Y.M.C.A. seems to reel from a haymaker by T. Thomas, Waipukurau, who beat him on points. This was just one of many whirlwind bouts seen on the first amateur boxing night of the season held in Hastings.

R. Freemantle, Hays Gym., and L. Russell, Y.M.C.A. used the braille system. There wasn’t a dull moment.

These feet weren’t the only ones that didn‘t touch the floor. Most of the thirty lads who fought were having their first bout, but zest made up for lack of strategy. They came from Dannevirke, Waipukurau, Hastings and Napier.

A Post Primary Schools’ Music Festival was staged this year in the Napier Municipal Theatre with six schools participating. The festival was organised by the Civic Concert Council, which brought from Christchurch, as guest conductor, Dr Michael Toovey, lecturer in music at Canterbury University. Taking her bow on the podium is Miss June Burkitt, music mistress at Napier Girls’ High School, who conducted the massed orchestra.

H.B. Arts & Crafts Festival

The Festival of Arts and Crafts held recently in Taradale proved conclusively that there is a place in our community for more active work in this field. The interest shown by the people of the district was all that the Taradale Advancement Society wished for and has set them a problem on how to approach and present any further festivals they sponsor. From the wealth of treasures and works of art on display, Photo News has selected only a handful to show you on these pages; nor does black and white photography do justice to some of the beautiful colours in these works.

MOTORISTS’ CORNER

ROUND TRIPS IN HAWKE’S BAY

Motorists who own a reliable car can make many pleasant round trips in Hawke’s Bay on a Sunday afternoon in winter. But they are off the main highways, hence the stress on reliable car.

One such trip follows the Taihape Road where it starts on the Napier side of the Fernhill Bridge. At Pukehamoamoa School four miles from Fernhill, take the left-hand fork on the Matapiro Road. This leads as far as the Ngaruroro River, follows it for a few miles then branches right to head for Crownthorpe in a northerly direction. One and a-half miles after Crownthorpe, two routes may be followed – the shorter (to the right) leads back to Pukehamoamoa; the longer continues north (to the left), joining the Taihape Road again above Sherenden. From there, return down the Taihape Road to Fernhill.

SHORTER ROUTE:
Round trip from Napier: About 45 miles
Round trip from Hastings: About 42 miles.

LONGER ROUTE:
Round trip from Napier: About 50 miles
Round trip from Hastings: About 47 miles

TELL A FRIEND OR NEIGHBOUR WHERE YOU ARE GOING.

TAKE A CAN OF PETROL.

“Over 60 miles per hour you don’t drive a car, you aim it.”

“Drivers! Your passengers’ lives are in’ your hands – spare them.”

(More passengers than drivers died last year.)

HOW DO YOU FEEL?

Safe, courteous driving is largely a matter of emotional makeup and social adequacy. The accident repeater or chronic traffic law violator is aggressive, intolerant, irresponsible and impulsive. He has an exaggerated sense of self-importance and a grandiose estimate of his own abilities. When you take your car out leave your frustrations parked in the garage.

DID YOU REALISE . . .

THERE IS NO PERIOD OF GRACE AFTER JUNE 30th

You are not eligible for third party vehicle insurance after midnight on June 30th, UNLESS your vehicle carries new registration plates. Many drivers think they have up to a week’s grace – they haven’t.

Early plate-changers should hang their old plates over the top of the new.

A RAILWAY LINE SHOULD BE CROSSED AT 15 MILES AN HOUR

Faster – the driver has too little time to observe the track.

Slower – the car can stall; the driver has less control unless in low gear.

YOU CAN STOP MORE QUICKLY ON AN INTERSECTION IF, WHEN YOU SLOW DOWN, YOU MOVE THE RIGHT FOOT OVER THE BRAKE PEDAL. This saves a valuable split second in an emergency.

PARENTS, AND ONLY PARENTS, CAN SAVE MANY CHILDREN’S LIVES . . .
by protecting them from road traffic till they can protect themselves – accidents kill more children than the seven worst children’s diseases.

IT’S UP TO PARENTS!

MOTORIST’S EPITAPH

“It couldn’t happen to me.”

GERM OF AN IDEA

It might be taking things a little too far if we introduced the Saudi Arabian penalty for careless driving causing injury, but they certainly have hit on something. In that country the motorist proved responsible for injury receives up to 50 lashes before an assembly of other motorists. Perhaps we could reintroduce the pillory and stocks in a prominent position in Emerson Street and Heretaunga Street – public ridicule might mean more to careless drivers than a mere fine or even a cancelled licence – at the moment there’s no loss of face, no public disgrace involved in our penalties.

These Chinese philosophers sunk deep in thought were also from the Youren collection. Though only a few inches high the hand-carved detail is remarkable even to the expressions on their faces and the flowing folds of their gowns.

This tiny Japanese figure dressed in her kimono was also perfect in detail.

The intricate carving in this ivory arch less than eighteen inches across, depicts various phases of life in a Chinese village.

Members of the Art Gallery Pottery group kept large crowds intrigued round their demonstration stand in the Taradale Town Hall. Stalwarts of the group, Hilary Thurston, Napier, and Colin Baumfield, Hastings, kept the potting wheel going almost continually while they explained their craft to onlookers.

Highlights of the festival were the mannequin parades of national costumes – Chinese frocks and jackets one night and a general display of 40 genuine national costumes on the final night.

This is the cheong-sam – the modern, eastern, close fitting gown, which recently came into some prominence because of its daring side slits. It is modelled by Mable Lum.

Alys Alexander and two of her children modelled these exotic Chinese jackets. Behind them is a floral-patterned, Chinese embroidered bedcover.

And these are some of the national costumes.

Betty Munro displayed the voluminous skirt and shawl of a Hindu village woman.

Exquisite hand-made lace and embroidery adorns this Czechoslovakian costume worn by Susan Lothian.

An exotic Indian temple dancer‘s costume gold-embossed and heavily embroidered with sequins was displayed by Therese Pothan.

Sue Kasza’s Danish costume featured a bottle green skirt and jacket over a white muslin blouse with a small black velvet bonnet.

Denis Kasza jnr. showed off the attractive clothes of a Kashmiri boy – white trousers and long white shirt worn outside under a hand – embroidered cream cashmere coat.

Carved from fishbone, these little men had a cockleshell view – friends, perhaps, of the three men of Gotham.

Page 25

Sue McTaggett and Jean Lothian wore Japanese dresses of patterned silk with the traditional obi or ornamental waistband folded at the back. Their costumes were complete to the satin sandals, the fans and even a carnation in the hair.

The high caste Indian woman, Beverley Stafford, wore a fine, white sari edged with black and matched by her sandals.

Ann Schwalger displayed the Samoan dress – white lava lava and floral top with a short skirt – known as a pair.

The wealthy Moslem woman, Diane Trower, wore flame brocade trousers, long tunic and a white head veil or chuddar edged with gold. Her embroidered leather slippers turn up at the toes.

The Balinese maiden at prayer did not take part in the parade. She watched quietly from a side table.

In the body of the hall there were many interested viewers of the adult art section. There were a hundred paintings shown by more than 30 artists – most of them in the province.

At the gymnasium, another of the Taradale halls used for the festival, many boys spent happy hours watching the numerous working models and studying all the displays of aircraft, ships and vehicles.

At the R.S.A. Hall was a refreshing display of secondary and primary schools art. This was just one panel of the secondary school section.

Maori basketmaking was also demonstrated with deft hand movements to those who visited the R.S.A. Hall.

H.B. WIN Rose Bowl

In one of the many exciting matches during play for the Freyberg Rosebowl, spectators close on the ninth green where the two balls played by Stuart Jones, Hawke’s Bay, and R.R. Newdick, Auckland, lie a foot apart after their second strokes. Newdick gave it to Jones when he three-putted on this par five, 458 yards hole. Jones, No. 1 player for Hawke’s Bay, beat Newdick 2 and 1.

Not surfcasters in competition, but extra hands at the Freyberg Rosebowl Tournament toting long canes to keep the crowds back from the players. Weather was good and brought the public out in thousands with a type of tournament fever. Galleries were large all through.

Two up at the sixteenth, Jones leaves the green in pensive mood – or perhaps just relaxing. It was after this fifth round with Auckland that Hawke’s Bay took a clear-cut lead – five wins to Auckland’s and Wellington’s four. In the final round Hawke’s Bay beat Canterbury to win the Rosebowl for the first time.

Hastings Hospital

In a recent flurry of social activity this magnificent new five-storey block was opened at the Hastings Memorial Hospital by the Minister of Health, Mr Shelton. It will relieve the pressing restriction of space suffered for many years in the older buildings behind. The new block includes space for engineering services, an automatic exchange, offices for medical and nursing heads, an occupational therapy unit, X-ray department and, of course, ample sunny ward space. Together with other buildings still under construction at the hospital, the project will cost over £1 million.

Part of the large crowd gathered outside the building opened on May 24th.

Nurse R. Gooch was one of several who conducted visitors through the extensive building. With her are Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Barley, well known Hastings residents.

While other offical guests look on, Dr. L W. Broughton, Assistant Superintendent to the H.B. Hospital Board, explains a £1000 theatre light to Mr. Shelton.

Acknowledging an ovation is Mr. A. I. Rainbow (standing) the only surviving member of the Board which opened the hospital in 1928.

QUEENS BIRTHDAY RUGBY

A break from tradition brought the Bush XV to Napier on Queen’s Birthday to play a Hawke’s Bay side while another equally strong Hawke’s Bay side visited Masterton to play the usual match against Wairarapa. Both Hawke’s Bay teams won. These are incidents from the match played McLean Park, Napier, in which the home team beat Bush 14-8.

S. Charmley, H.B. prop, is brought down in possession by J. Kerridge.

Breakaway John McKinnon puts a solid right boot behind the ball to make progress for the Bay.

Bush halfback and captain, R. Swanney, gets a long pass away from a lineout.

M. Bevan, Hawke‘s Bay, breaks away from a ruck with the ball but very little support.

Left winger, W. McKay, prepares for a centreing kick with better support apparent in mid-field. The match was played in bright sunshine with a reasonably firm turf. All three stands were virtually full for the match.

A week earlier in the Centennial Hall at the same park in Napier, wool buyers at the last sale of the season complained bitterly of the cold, draughty conditions. Many wore their coats and even gloves, but even so they seemed to lack some of their usual fire when bidding. Heaters provided by the Woolbrokers’ Association did little to thaw them out. The heaters were luke-cold to the touch. If the buyers carry out their threat to hold the sales in Wellington, local woolbrokers stand to lose heavily as they have paid a lump sum contract to use the Centennial hall for sales for the next umpteen years.

O-O-O-O-O-O-H!

Harrier Club colts took to the water like porpoises when they encountered the waterjump at Windsor Park in the Dean-Goodfellow Steeplechase events this year, at Hastings.

The Waipukurau club made rather a welter of it, with wins in the seniors, the A and B grade colts and two of the four sealed handicaps.

Brothers I. and K. Hunt, Waipukurau, won the B grade and A grade colts’ races, while a fellow colt, T. Rawnsley, won the B grade sealed handicap.

His father, R. Rawnsley won the Dean Cup for the Senior Steeplechase and also the sealed handicap – the first time one man has won both since the event began six years ago. Napier won the teams event for the Goodfellow Shield.

Havelock Nth. QUEEN

The raising of £9242, no mean feat for the borough of Havelock North, culminated in the crowning of the Red Queen, Mrs. N. P. Davis, by the Mayor, Mr. Nilsson. The Red Queen’s committee raised nearly half the total. Her Majesty is seen at the crowning flanked by her maids, Cecily Lay and Penny Harris.

The White Queen, Mrs. D. Grant, attended by Betty Kingford and Beverley Parks.

This genuine beefeater’s dress from the Tower of London, which was worn by Mr. W. Pohio, added a colourful touch to the ceremony in the Assembly Hall.

The Blue Queen, Mrs. D. Wallace, was accompanied by her maids, Susanne Liley and Sheila Bannister.

One of the first to pay homage to the Queen was her husband, Neville Davis.

Scouting Affairs

A patrol of Richmond Company Guides were almost airborne when they strove valiantly to erect their tent in a high wind during a field day held by Napier guides at Maraenui. They had a time limit to beat. However, they had one consolation – other patrols were in the same flying boat.

During the day Marilyn Bailley was invested with her Queen’s Guide badge, the highest award made to a guide under the age of sixteen. She was presented with it by Provincial Guide Commissioner, Mrs. von Dadelszen.

These girls were busy memorising the contents of a first aid kit.

These three nurses from Napier Hospital are all members of the movement and help with guides and brownies. They are Miss V. Hulbert, Miss J. Olsen and Miss H. Bowker.

“I DECLARE. . .

these courts open”. So said Mr. J. Tucker, Hawke’s Bay County Councillor, when he opened the new basketball courts at Haumoana. The Haumoana Club, formed 17 years ago, has only this year seen fulfillment of plans for its hard courts.

A game in progress between a home team and Clive School, The Haumoana Basketball Club is one of the few clubs in the village which has not gone into recess at some stage. They have been rewarded with these fine courts, the result of a concerted effort by the club, the Haumoana Progressive Association, the Park Committee and the county riding member, Mr. Tucker.

A local member offers ice creams to visitors.

A senior game in progress between Haumoana and Rebels – a Hastings club. It’s to be hoped the Basketball Association will class the new courts as “home” courts so the local club can make full use of them and not have to travel to Hastings every Saturday.

Field Day

On a recent balmy autumn afternoon, members of the Hawke’s Bay Camera Club held a field day round the lower reaches of the Tukituki River. Most of them were content with the scenery containing an occasional figure, but Phil Moore spent some of his time taking the members taking the scenery. Some of the club are seen in this shot as they gained a vantage point above the river.

The camera crouch, a pose peculiar to photographers, is adopted by Hilary le Lievre as she takes an unusual angle on a small bridge.

Doug Shearer, president of the club, provides support for a rather weighty telephoto lens wielded by Bryant Bell, 2ZC announcer.

WATER GARDENERS

When the Wanganui Aquarium and Water Garden Society visited Napier as the guests of the local group, they were entertained to morning tea at Mr. and Mrs. F. D. Logan’s in Colenso Avenue while they studied Mr. Logan’s tropical fish tanks and cold water ponds. This is a mixed group of Napier and Wanganui members.

WATER FLEET!

Shades of wartime convoys seldom seen in these parts were visible to Hawke’s Bay residents recently when ten overseas ships and two coasters were forced to anchor in the roadstead at Napier because of a strong surge at the wharves. As far as we know this is the largest number of ships ever to lie off Napier at one time.

Malahoff and David Soames both of Wellington, fight with sabres. Neither was placed in the finals of this event.

Two more Wellington swordsman, Dick Peterson and Dick Hall in their sabre match.

It was the one-armed fencer Pickworth, who took most of the honours – first in epee and barrage, second in foils and third in sabre. R. Binning, Wellington, and M. Henderson, Auckland, ran him close.

£1500 BLAZE

£1500 worth of petrol salvaged from the Caltex compound following the big leak, was declared contaminated and used in an experiment on Ahuriri lagoon to determine the heat likely to be generated by such a blaze. These two men are studying some of the sensitive equipment provided by the Dominion Physical Laboratory for the tests.

At the height of the blaze a tall column of smoke rose from the petrol with flames rising about 200 feet.

Before the 8,800 gallons of lovely petrol were ignited, interested parties gathered on the brink. The tests were carried out to check the adequacy of safety regulations at oil company installations.

It used to be “Cash on the Nail”
Once a young man received his salary in cash and paid his bills “on the nail”. His savings were kept in a money belt or some secret hideaway.
– but today there’s a better way
Today, any young man on a regular wage or salary should have a BNZ Cheque Account and enjoy the double safeguard of paying bills by cheque . . . an automatic receipt for payment and protection against theft. A Cheque Account also gives you full control of finances, and standing in the community, too.
