With the planting of more than 700 trees on a steep slope below the hospital, the Napier Tree Society recently gave an insight to its plans to beautify the city with flora. Pictured happily assisting to plant seedlings are, from left, April Challis and Linda Hall.

Dennis O’Rourke, a Junior Wildlife Warden, one of the many who helped to re-cover the denuded hillside.

President of the Tree Society, Mr. L. P. Challis, explains the master plan to plant the hillside with oak, poplar, pine and flowering gums in groups to provide colour against a background of cedar and cyprus.

ROVING CAMERA

One of Hastings’ old landmarks proved rather a tough proposition to a gang of demolition men who recently attempted to pull it over, thinking it would collapse like a pack of cards and make their work easier. However, the old building, after being winched over on its side, defied the experts and presented them with just as difficult a task. By the use of the winch, they then attacked it, ripping it apart in sections. The building, situated on the corner of Hastings and Heretaunga Streets, it to make way for a modern foodmarket.

HASTINGS CAT SHOW

Hastings Assembly Hall was the venue recently for the Hastings Cat Club’s annual show, and attracted large entries. Thousands visited the show to see the array of home pets, playful kittens and pedigree strains such as appear on this page. Top left: “The eyes have it” could well be the caption to this cute little fellow. Top right: This chappy was definitely not sociable. He sat with his back to the audience most of the day with his face in the corner of his box. Below: Dianne Almond holding her cat Sweetie.

Page 22

Some of the bundles of fun that provided the crowds with various antics. Little Leah Baker’s dressed-up  cat has his eyes on something other than the camera. Leah comes from Bay View.

Page 23

Always a great favourite and as regal as ever are these Siamese cats.

“Tigger” shown being held by John Scott of Napier was a stray rescued by the R.S.P.C.A. and given to John as a kitten. “Tigger” has turned into a prizewinner and gained two 1st and four 2nd prizes.

A new breed of cat which drew much favourable comment was this Cameo “Rampur Candy Girl”, displayed here by Graeme Briggs.

SUTCLIFFE CUP CONTEST

The H.B. Swing Club’s annual competition for young musicians was held recently in the “Top Hat” Ballroom. The competition, divided into two sections, 18 years and under and under 21 years, attracted quite a number of youngsters all of whom demonstrated that there is no dearth of up-and-coming talent in Hawke’s Bay. Pianist Ron Coleman, winner of the Sutcliffe Cup for under 21, is shown receiving his trophy from Swing Club President Johnny Hale.

One who impressed with a good touch on the keyboard, was 18-year-old Phillip Dadson, winner of the Fitzgerald Rosebowl for musicians 18 years and under.

Page 27

Not seen very frequently in H.B., unfortunately,, but fans would do well to keep this youngster in mind. Derek Fitzgerald on “vibes”.

A youngster who drew a lot of applause was 14-year-old Glen Dudley on alto sax.

Drummer Michael Stemson.

Trevor Hindle on Clarinet was the youngest competitor at 12 years of age.

DOLPHINS FOR NAPIER

After some controversy at the start, Napier has now embarked on its new Marineland project. Pictured here are sketch plans of the new proposed Marineland, and opposite are photographs taken at Coolangatta of the main attraction for the new aquarium, the dolphins.

The plans of the Marineland will possibly be altered in the light of information gained in Australia, but this should only be to the dolphin and shark pools. We feel that the project is a worthy one and should receive everybody’s support. The Marineland will be a very worthy asset to the city.

Some of the antics that dolphins get up to. They should prove a never-ending source of entertainment for all ages.

ADVENTURE IN THE MOUNTAINS

Some weeks ago a party of Napier High School Crusaders took off for a three-day winter camp into the Ruahine Ranges. From the roadhead where the vehicles were left, the party made their way up the Waipawa River, over the Waipawa Saddle to the Waikamaka Hut owned by the Heretaunga Tramping Club. Leading the party were Dr. Vine Martin (extreme right, lower picture) shown fording the river with, from left, Eric Robinson, Graham Absalom and Graham Eagle, and Mr. Martin Yoeman [Yeoman] (top picture, arrow) the leader of the Napier Crusader Union. Dr. Hartin [Martin], a medical man, is a full-time travelling secretary for the movement and has been connected with the work since its inception. The Crusader Unions operate in about 180 High Schools throughout New Zealand.

Incidents recorded on the three-day snow camp. Top left: Attempting to light a fire out-of-doors was no easy task with wet firewood, but nevertheless the boys succeeded. Those engaged at it are, from left: Kelvin Burton, Kevin Gerrard, Mr. Yoeman [Yeoman], Robert Heiford and Neville Sawyer (bending). Top right: Captivated by the unspoiled beauty of the beech forests that surround them are Graham Eagle and Richard Shuker.

That’s what Graham is up to down by the edge of the stream.

Page 35

The Waikamaka Hut fringed with snow-laden trees was a sight that could be compared with retreats in Canada. The hut, which is built to accommodate approximately 12 or 14, actually housed nearly 30. With one exception, Mr. Mundy (below) who insisted in sleeping in this two-man tent. We don’t know if Reg has got his sights on wintering at Scott Base with the next New Zealand party, but nonetheless, he passed his acclimatisation test O.K.

PROVINCIAL BADMINTON

Hawke’s Bay met Taranaki and Wanganui at Badminton at the Y.M.C.A. Stadium, Hastings recently. Although going down to Taranaki 7-9 in the 2nd division and Wanganui 5-11 in the 3rd division, some excellent games were seen. We show here a general view of the courts with 2nd division games in progress.

L. Burns (Hawke’s Bay) although losing his game, is only in his second season of Badminton and showed great potential.

W. Lyons (H.B.) played a vigorous game but went down narrowly to Johnson of Taranaki.

H.B. v. WAIRARAPA

Hawke’s Bay forward Terry Davies pounces round and attempts to force the ball away from a Wairarapa player during the representative rugby fixture against Hawke’s Bay Juniors at McLean Park, Napier, recently. Below: The Wairarapa half-back, W. Eber grimaces as burly Hawke’s Bay forward Peter Clark (extreme right) descends on him. The game was drawn 14-all.

Page 41

A near thing for Wairarapa was this incident when speeding Hawke’s Bay winger Hamish McLean bore down on the Wairarapa fullback and nearly managed to kick the ball ahead, which, if he had, would have ended in a score. Below: the centre winger, Hamish Morrison, is pictured just before being bundled into touch.

With Basketball Tournaments looming ahead, competition for selection has become increasingly strong. Our photographer visited Ebbet [Ebbett] Park recently and found even in lower grade matches, a strong sense of rivalry. Shown here is an incident in the game between United 2 and High School 4.

CALISTHENICS

Calisthenics form an important part of pre-season swimming exercises. Generally commencing in June or July, these classes, under the guidance of coach Barry Anderson, place the emphasis on strengthening muscles rather than fitness. Here, the class practices an exercise designed to tone up stomach muscles.

Promising young swimmer Susan Cowan, demonstrates a forward somersault, closely watched by Susan Levy, Mary O’Dowd and Bernadette Brown.
