Front Cover. Miss Maureen Kingi, Miss New Zealand 1962, chosen to represent New Zealand overseas in the Miss World and Miss International contests, two very important events. Part of Maureen’s job will be to publicize our country, and help dispel some of the quaint ideas that some people have about us. Maureen is 19 years old and a student radiologist, a career she hopes to resume in 1963.

Back Cover. Napier from the air. Photograph taken from 8000 feet by Mr. A. W. Colley shows the complete layout of the City. It reminds us at this stage of a gigantic arrow head with Taradale in the distance acting as the tail.

Papa . . . there is a man in my bedroom. Monsieur Martin (Trevor Cardo) and his four daughters (Vicky Barton, Jill Salmon, Mary Colwill and Gillian Davies).

Napier Repertory’s second major play of the season is in complete contrast to the work they have been doing of late. “Hotel Paradiso” is a typical French farce which could be quite interesting.

“Here is the key Monsieur”. The ardent Boniface (John C. Thomas) and the timorous Marcella (Priscilla Ball) are interrupted by the hotel manager, Anniello.

Page 3

“How can you study passion from a book”. The obliging maid Victoire (Marianna Magdelinos) and the studious Maxime (Terry Coyle).

A nude woman is the most natural thing in the Hotel business. Anniello played by Bill Corfield and Georges by Allen Madden.

“I think this is a delightful little Hotel”. The apprehensive Marcella (Priscilla Ball) and the bolder Boniface (John C. Thomas).

The New Zealand Premiere of the Danish classical Ballet “Napoli”, held in Napier, was a wonderful experience. The audience at times bringing the show to a stop with their applause. The ballet itself is most colourful and entertaining.

The New Zealand Ballet Trust is a far cry today from the time only a few short years ago, when Mr. Poul Gnatt used to appeal for subscriptions across the footlights to half empty theatres. It is mainly due to the efforts of Poul Gnatt and a few believers in the future of New Zealand Ballet, that today the New Zealand Ballet Trust can look forward, with hope, to an assured future. To Mr. Gnatt and his small band – Congratulations.

Gennaro (Fredbjorn Bjornssen) presses his suit, but Veronica (Mary Herbert) does not approve.

Teresina (Kirsten Ralov) flirts with Peppo, a lemonade merchant (Kevin Baddiley) while Gennaro tries to win her back.

Page 7

Gennaro in his search for his lost love, finds the Blue Grotto and tries to win her back. Only the power of the crucifix restores Teresina and spares them both from Golfo’s wrath.

The quarrel patched up the lovers row to sea where Genaro’s [Gennaro’s] boat is overwhelmed in a sudden storm and Teresina is lost.

Teresina is brought captive to the Blue Grotto where Golfo, the sea sprite, falls in love with her.

It can be seen that the soldier who fell from his plinth (centre left) has not yet been replaced and also good progress appears to have been made on the laying out of the parade as we know it today.

Kindergartens! A lot of people must wonder why we need them. So we went along to find out what it was all about, and we think these pictures will tell the story far better than words.

One of the largest crowds ever to turn out on a weekday representative match saw Hawke’s Bay go down to Auckland by 11 points to 6.

The Hawke’s Bay forwards, who played a great game, had the edge on their opponents, but unfortunately, the local rearguards were not up to the standard of the Auckland backs and that was where the game was lost. After reports of Auckland’s open game against Wellington, just four days earlier, their performance here in Hawke’s Bay must have been a great disappointment to local fans, as most of the match was fought out in forward struggles, with line-outs and scrums the order of the day. The penalty conceded by Gary Watts, directly in front of his goal posts, was undoubtedly the painful moment of the game for Hawke’s Bay supporters.

Hawke’s Bay fullback, Frank Jones, is well and truly caught by Auckland’s winger, M. Dick.

Hawke’s Bay fullback Frank Jones just manages to clear as an Auckland player comes at him.
