just the place to buy paints (DULUX Paints)
You may need a bit of time when buying paint. There’s the right paint to choose (and Holts have a DULUX paint for every purpose) and there’s the right colour (Holts have hundreds of lovely DULUX colours). There’s the right advice you’ll need and this you’ll surely get from Holts friendly, knowledgeable paint experts.
Holts is a good place in which to buy paints, plenty of space in the store to shop in comfort, and plenty of space outside for car-parking.
Keep summer days free by painting your house now with DULUX Lo-Gloss.
Dries in 20 minutes, second coat can be applied within an hour.
Can be used in damp uncertain weather conditions and so easy to use that a normal house could be painted on a weekend. Or you can paint after work, even dewfall won’t affect Lo-Gloss. And tough and durable DULUX Lo-Gloss is an acrylic plastic – you may not need to paint again for seven years or more.
For inside walls and ceilings use DULUX Super-Latex – another so easy-to-use DULUX paint.
Ask at Holts about DULUX Lo-Gloss

A new idea for a sewer outfall, at present being pioneered by the Gisborne City Council may prove the answer to both Napier and Hastings sewage disposal problems.

A mile long pipe of 4 inch thick concrete is being glued together with an apoxy resin into four ¼ mile lengths, pointed towards the beach. Later this year the 1600 ton pipeline will be dragged to sea by a tug and dug into the seabed by a giant 6-foot disc system, designed by the city engineer, Mr. H. C. Williams.

This is the first marine pipeline in the world solely of concrete construction to be launched in this way. It will not float, but will weigh a mere 9 lbs. per foot in water. On land each foot weighs more than 500 lbs.

The 30 inch diameter pipe is shown being assembled, pointed at Waikanae Beach.

At the Town Hall in Hastings, wrestling fans saw Rocky Hunter, U.S.A., in his final bout in New Zealand, defeat Clem Lakis (ex Beatles bodyguard), in the seventh round. Both men had secured a fall each in a fast moving display of holds and throws, but due to the persistent use of the banned claw hold, the referee, Bomba Wells, disqualified Lakis, ending a really high-class display one round too soon.

Hunter applies a forward headlock.

Battle of strength. Hunter applies a full Nelson.

Lakis applies a body scissors. Hunter counters with a forward dump.

This little shack was erected by the Napier, Hastings and district radio retailers at their own cost, and relays W.N.T.V.1 television programmes to about one million pounds worth of receivers in this district. But the most important point is that this little translator is worth, at present, £35,250 a year in licence fees for a very indifferent picture.

Wairarapa goalie N. Hodges makes a spectacular leap pushing the ball away as a Hawke’s Bay forward attempts to head the ball into the net during the inter-provincial soccer match at Nelson Park, Napier, recently. The game ended in a draw, 1-1. Below: Two incidents from the match.

Pictured after being washed ashore at Clifton is the 50 ton sperm whale, which has subsequently been covered by a slip of sandstone near Rabbit Gully. The jaw bone of the mammoth sea creature was salvaged by local fishermen.

– Take a Tip from ROBBIE

Keep your trouble light trouble-free by coiling it loosely over a tin can nailed to the wall. The cap will also hold a spare bulb. Form a loop near the end of the wire and hang it over a hook to keep from accidentally pulling the plug.

Improvise a coat-hanger bracket by closing a rear window on a rubber fruit jar ring. The ring will support several garments and will leave no marks or scratches on the window. A ring cut from an inner tube will serve as well.

The spring wire type hose clip used on many modern cars are sometimes awkward to remove and install unless the proper type of pliers are available. Here is a simple way to handle this type of clip, which can then be easily opened by hand. Different sizes of clips require different size tubing. A – steel tubing; B – hose: C – spring wire type hose clip.

A quick test for car fuses can be made by unscrewing the bottom cap of a metal flashlight and separating it slightly from the body. With the switch on, a good fuse held so that it touches both cap and body will light the flashlight bulb.

Finn Class yachtsmen seeking selection for the Tokyo Olympic Games, converged on Napier recently to take part in the trial races. Due to a unique calm on the Bay, the final three days of racing had to be abandoned and the winner of the first series of races, the Olympic gold medalist Peter Mander, Christchurch (top right) was recommended for the nomination. Top picture: The boaties prepare their yachts while waiting for a wind that failed to materialise. Lower: Shown, from left, are Bret de Thier (Canterbury), Bryan Treleaven (Christchurch), Noel Everett, Clive Roberts and Tom Speed, all of Auckland.

An amateur theatrical group recently formed in Napier, has been brought into being by a small group of experienced players, who not only act, but produce, construct stage sets, props and gain valuable experience in makeup and general techniques, but above all to provide good theatre.

Keith Hambleton and Alwyn Davey work on a set piece.

A sport which has taken a firm hold in New Zealand over the past few years has many adherents in Hawke’s Bay. The Napier Y.M.C.A. Judo Club, which is now conducting a membership drive, is a flourishing organisation, coaching a sport which teaches self-restraint, discipline and a method of self-defence. Shown here are members of the club in the traditional judo pose of relaxation.

President of the club, Avon Carter displays an extremely important part of judo, the breakfall.

Bill Madore and one of the pupils with a shoulder throw.

Page 53

Two newcomers to the club demonstrate a hip throw.

John Turner with Bill Madore on the receiving end of a “shoulder wheel” or Kata Garuma.

Of course anyone can make a mistake!

Page 54

Instructor Bill Madore demonstrates an arm bar strangle on Avon Carter.

Avon Carter shows some delight in forcing a cross neck arm bar.

Page 55

Judo is a very effective form of self defence for girls and women. Here Lorraine Lyttle as the “victim” and Bill Madore as the “assailant” demonstrate the technique of disposing of unwanted attention. Footnote. Bill Madore tips the scales at 15 stone and is 6 foot 1 in. tall.

A quick twist by the “victim” as she steps in front of her “assailant” and …

…”Ouch” – my aching back.

Or just as devastating as a simple stomach throw.

The annual presentation of the “Tomoana Players” this year takes the form of a farce, “All for Mary”, by Brooke and Bannerman. The story centres around Mary who, having been married twice, finds herself in her second honeymoon with both her husbands, current and ex, who incidentally both have chickenpox. The action takes place mainly in the bedroom of a Swiss hotel.

Bedtime story for the chickenpox victims: Humphrey and Victor (Peter Geor) resign themselves to the nursing of Nannie Cartwright, played by Jessie Swanson.

Humphrey looks with suspicion at Alphonse, as well he might, when Alphonse starts playing attention to Mary. Humphrey played by Robin Nairn; Alphonse by Eric Reay; Mary by Ann Hughes.
