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

TARADALE TEENARAMA

Two and a half years ago, a Youth Club was started in Taradale under the name of the Teenarama Club. They are given the use of the town hall, by the Taradale Borough Council, each Sunday afternoon, and the H.B. Savings Bank gave the Club a grant which will help towards equipment next year. So far the Club has purchased table tennis tables, dart boards, record players etc. With only 6d per afternoon for members and 1/- for non members to get in, any teenager can enjoy the freedom of playing any of the numerous games and activities set out for them. Dances, which are run under supervision, are an enormous success.

SENIOR CITIZEN

The first Senior Citizen in our series is Mrs H.M. Patison, who is 84 years old. Mrs Patison was born in Carterton, Wairarapa, in 1882. At the age of 10 she went to Eketahuna, then to Dannevirke at the age of 17, where she met and married Mr. R.J. Patison at 18. They were married at the Anglican Church, Eketahuna, on the 9th November, 1900. Mr Patison worked in the Saw Mill at Patoka; from there to Te Pohue, and finally to Napier in 1916, where he was employed by the Harbour Board and Napier City Council. Though Mr Patison died 23 years ago, he is survived by his wife, and by 13 of their 17 children, 51 grandchildren and 60 great-grandchildren.

All the children live in Hawke‘s Bay except for one in New Plymouth and two in Palmerston North. Mrs Patison is seen here cutting her 84th birthday cake at her granddaughter’s engagement party;

Right: Mrs. Patison’s granddaughter, Beverley, daughter of Mr and Mrs M.J. Williams, Napier, announced her engagement to Allan Brian, son of Mr and Mrs Pickering, also of Napier, on October lst at the Tech Old Boys’ Gym.

LIFE MEMBER

Introducing Mr Hector Spence, Life Member of the Hastings Musical Comedy Company, who has spent all his life in Hastings, and whose hobby has always been the theatre. In 1950 when Greater Hastings Organisation called for someone to form a company to produce shows locally, he and a few friends started what is now known as the Hastings Musical Comedy Co. Their first show was “Holiday Cruise”, followed in ’51 by “Sally”. Mr Spence has directed all following productions, until last year when he handed the reins over to his son. During the years 1946-64 he was Custodian-Manager of the Municipal Theatre. Of all the many “stars” he has met the top two are, in his opinion, the American singer Lawrence Tibbett, and “Our Glad”, Gladys Moncrieff.

CHANGING FACES

It will be nigh on seven years since Photo News last did a coverage of the faces “behind the “scenes” at Broadcasting. One finds considerable difficulty in keeping track of the many new people being transferred to and from N.Z.B.C., Napier.

Recently we completed another cover story on Broadcasting to keep you all up-to-date on who and what is “behind” your radio set activities.

ABOUT PEOPLE

BENNETT – TURRESSON. At Grebo Church, Linkoping, Sweden, Christina, daughter of Herr Bo and Fru Turesson of Mora, to Quentin, son of Mr and Mrs Bromley M. Bennett of Napier. Christina’s beautiful headdress is a Crown of Gold studded with semi precious stones, some of which are believed to be Swedish mountain Quartz. The crown, which belongs to Grebo Church and has done for approximately 150 years, is worn by most of the girls who get married there. To have a crown of this type is a Swedish tradition and many families have their own and pass them down from generation to generation. The couple will return to New Zealand in January next year.

DAY OF GLORY

We’ve got the Shield. Whether we keep it for one or 20 games is of small moment to the thousands upon thousands of Hawke’s Bay fans who travelled to Hamilton on the weekend of 24th September. For them this day was a great day in the history of rugby and nothing will erase the tremendous spirit of comradeship that existed wherever the “Hawkeye Guys” gathered together that weekend.

That we did take the Shield was undeniably the high point of the event, but overall, it was people, Hawke’s Bay people, who made the mass invasion of Hamilton one of the greatest events in Hawke’s Bay Rugby – never before have so many gone so far, from one place, to see so few.

Estimates of the exodus to Hamilton to see the H.B. v Waikato Ranfurly Shield match vary between 10,000 and 13,000, but it is certain that the small winning margin did not reflect the tremendous difference of support for the two opposing teams. Below: A Waikato forward has the ball, but then it didn’t do him much good on this occasion. On left, Tom Johnson. On right, Neil Thimbleby, and, centre, David Kirkpatrick.

Surely, these are New Zealand’s, and perhaps the world’s, highest goal posts.

The match itself was just another game of football, and not a very good one at that, from a spectator’s point of view. The one bright spot was when winger Smith (with the ball) lit out for the line with Davis in support. From this move came the only try of the match.

Below: After the match. Under this “scrum” is a very uncomfortable H.B. player. They eventually got him up on their shoulders.

Page 21

Before the match the adversaries fought it out in the streets and on the football ground itself. Above: Hawkeye and Mooloo. Right: The Hawkeye boys did a circuit of the field. Below: Homeward bound.

A Hamilton supporter went to a lot of trouble to welcome the visitors, but like the well decorated vintage car, left, which was brought to Hamilton by trailer, he was not allowed to follow “Hawkeye” the two blocks to the ground – no permit, said the inflexible authorities.

A HEROE’S [HERO’S] WELCOME

On Sunday the heroes came home. To meet them at the airport and at a special welcome home ceremony at Napier’s soundshell, were thousands of Hawke’s Bay supporters.

FORMER HASTINGS T.V. CELEBRITY MARRIES

Well known T.V. personality and now an interviewér with Town and Around in Wellington, Miss Judy Coralyn Sylvia Callingham, youngest daughter of Mr and Mrs K.G.A. Callingham of Hastings, was married to Mr John Beaumont Whitwell, second son of Mrs D.A. and the late Mr F.W. Whitwell of Lower Hutt. The couple were married in St. Ann’s Church, Northland, Wellington, by the Rev. Richard Easton. In attendance were Miss Karen Lawrence, bridesmaid, and Mr Brian Freeman, best man.

Judy has spent her ambitious career with the N.Z.B.C., starting as a copywriter, then a journalist with the Listener, radio and T.V. announcer, so to her present position with Town and Around. Judy said she loves John, speech training, chess, reading and people, especially off beat and interesting people. John joined Broadcasting after leaving school. After a period of years with them he ventured overseas where he spent five years in professional theatre. During this time he toured Britain and Europe with “West Side Story”. He also spent a considerable time both on and back stage in the West End, returning home to N.Z. over a year ago. Judy said that John’s loves are the theatre, me, golf, me, painting, me, and having a drink and talk with friends.

Left: Judy is signing the register in her white crepe gown lined with pink, with a white velvet jacket with novel standup collar over frock, white velvet train also lined in pink and a delightful triangular headdress which set the ensemble off.

FLAXMERE DEVELOPMENT

To cope with the rapid expansion of Hastings, the Hastings City Council has purchased approximately 455 acres of land which is being developed as the first residential area of the new suburb of Flaxmere. An area Of 150 acres is zoned for industry, this runs adjacent to Omahu Road. This zone will be separated from the residential area by reserves and orchards. The Flaxmere Shopping Centre is planned on an area of 12 acres which would allow for a retail ground floor area of about 125,000 sq. ft. also office accommodation and a car park for about 600 cars. Conveniently sited throughout the planned Flaxmere area, are small retail shopping areas for the day-to-day requirements. Separate from the main shopping centre are the planned churches, community buildings and an hotel.

Quite a marvellous project for the ever expanding City of Hastings; completely new suburb, with everything down to 74 acres for recreation, the largest being Flaxmere Park of 40 acres.

Above: A view of the site at present, and below, a plan of the new shopping centre.

WRESTLING

The first Professional wrestling match held for some time, took place in the Napier Municipal Theatre. To wrestling fans, many of the holds during the exciting evening’s performance would have brought back memories of well known men in the game – Harry Mamos, Lofty Blomfield, Paul Boesch, Joe Savoldi etc.

Right: The referee asked Zorro if he wished to submit to the dreaded “Claw Hold”. Zorro’s snarled reply was “NO”.

2ZC’S “YELLOW SUBMARINE” CONTEST

2ZC’s latest “Fabulous Fifty” contest, once again a whale of a success. Contestants from all parts of the country were asked to draw a “Yellow Submarine”, the Beatles top-of-the-chart smash hit. Judging was a real headache, as some of the entries were magnificent. Not all the “subs” were yellow, but Peter Tucker’s entry was indeed a winner – detail being terrific as well as very humorous. Peter’s entry is the centre picture at left.

Below: A witty and imaginative mind was behind this drawing.

Bottom: This work of art, about 6 feet long, was specially sent by bus from Wairoa, and belonged to a most enterprising young lady who apparently used ordinary “house paint”.

LAST SCHEDULED STEAM TRAIN – NAPIER TO GISBORNE

Many Railway workmen, drivers and those who have worked in close proximity with Steam Trains would have felt a pang of nostalgia at the sight of the last scheduled steam train Engine JA 1287 (Mountain Class) from Napier to Gisborne as it puffed out of Napier’s Railway yards, on Friday 7th October at 2.30 p.m.

Right: A thick column of black smoke is the only evidence of the departing train as it makes its way out of the Railway yards on the first step of its last journey.

CAMP OPOUTAMA

Can provide a holiday in the great “Outdoors”, where children are able to learn the techniques of camping, seaside skills, pioneering, woodcraft, gymnastics and just learning to appreciate and love the beauty of living in the fresh air, away from the bustling towns and cities, where nature and its many exciting secrets are round every corner. The Y.M.C.A’s camp for both girls and boys is situated 25 miles beyond Wairoa, alongside a safe beach. Trained staff watch over the children as they enjoy many activities set out for them, such as riflery, archery, judo, trampolining, cricket, softball, basketball, gymnastics, athletics, tenniquoits, movies, darts, padderminton, mock courts, concerts, hiking trips, singing, and many other activities to fill the day. Below are photographs taken from past camps. Two of the boys from last year’s camp riding surf boards are Ian Rawnsley and Gordon Willis.

THE ART OF BEER MAKING

Beer was one of the first alcoholic beverages made by man. It was made by the Chinese, Egyptians, Babylonians, and other ancient civilisations. The Greeks and Romans learned the secrets of brewing from the Egyptians, but preferred to drink wine; Not being Greeks or Romans, we decided to find out how beer is brewed in this modern day and age, so we took a visit to Leopard Breweries, Hastings. We were met by the Chief Brewer Mr Peter Stephenson, who showed us round and explained the brewing process.

The plant and equipment in an establishment such as this is most important. In the pictures below you will get an idea of the extent to which the brewer must go to produce our beer.

Right: This picture gives some idea of the refrigeration plant necessary to keep the temperature in the fermenting cellar at a constant 48 degrees fahrenheit.

Below right: Compressors for cooling plant.

Below: Modern boiler house which supplies necessary steam for heating throughout the brewery.

Bottom: Refrigeration control panel, which enables it to operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week with a minimum of supervision and maximum efficiency.

Bottom right: View of part of the Fermenting cellar where the tanks each holding 2,500 gallons, are stored!

Page 43

Top left: View inside one of the Fermenting tanks.

Centre top: The raw materials necessary for the production of the finished beverage, are Malted Barley and Hop Cones. The Resins at the base of the hop cone is where the actual flavour is sealed; this oil being extracted when the hops are boiled.

Right: Yeast in the storage vessels before it is added to the brew. The yeast is imported from Holland, and like everything else is subjected to rigorous lab tests before being used.

Far side: The inspection window, in the brew house, giving a clear view of the mix in the “Kettle” – all 2,600 gallons of it!!

Left: Shows Mr Tom Lothian of Hastings at the controls of the Hydro Automatic Brew House. A push of the button, a pull of the lever, all in the correct order, and your brew is under way – delicious!

Lower left: A sight to gladden the heart and give assurance of the impossibility of a beer drought! One of the huge storage tanks, which give a total storage capacity of 20,000 gallons of “Bright Beer” (Ready for consumption) From these it is pumped into tankers or the bottling plant.

Below left: Mr Metcalf and Mr Macklow are stacking bottles onto the conveyor belt, which takes them to the washing machine.

Below right: Mr L. Symes of Hastings checks bottles as they go into the washing- sterilising machine. The latter cleans 180 dozen bottles at a time, each taking 30 minutes to go through the cleansing process.

Page 44

After leaving the cleansing machine, the bottles pass before an inspection screen where they are examined by Mr Stan Birch, of Hastings, for dirty or any marks.

From there (right and top right) to the bottle filling machine, under the watchful eye of Mr Len Spencer. The machine is capable of filling and capping 300 dozen quart bottles per hour.

Below and below right: The next process is the pasteuriser, through which all bottled and canned beer passes to ensure fermentation has ceased.

Bottom left: Following the pasteurising machine the bottles are passed through the labelling machine, where we see Mr Renal Griffiths of Hastings, loading same.

Bottom right: A close-up view of the labelling device.

Page 45

In the case of canning beer, it is quite different from bottling.

Left: Pallette which holds 3,600 cans. This pallette contains empty cans as received from the manufacturer.

Below left: General view of empty can de palletiser, showing cans being conveyed to can washer.

Below: Cans seen as they are leaving “can washing”‘machine.

Bottom left: Empty and washed cans making their way to the filling machine.

Bottom right: The can filling machine is similar to the bottle filler. Cans are filled at the rate of 100 per minute.

Page 46

On a previous page; you would have seen Mr Griffiths loading the labelling machine, awaiting the arrival of these newly pasteurised bottles of beer as they pass by on the conveyor belt.

Top right: Bottles getting their labels permanently fixed in place as they pass between two brushes.

Right: As they travel still further on down the “belt”, to (below) be packed by hand, into cartons, by Mr E. Patrick and Mr A. Anderson, who are both of Hastings.

Bottom left: First of the flap folding and sealing process on the packed cartons. From here they go to Mr Keith Ward, who stacks the sealed cartons on a forklift truck to be added, to those awaiting consignment in the store – from there to you!

Top right: Mr Keith Ward hoisting cartons onto a truck for Mr P. Aramoana, who will take them to the railway station for delivery to Wellington.

Left: One of Leopard‘s many modern tankers.

Below: From left: Beer is stored in they laboratory in both an oven and a chiller, in order to accelerate storage checks, under both warm and cool conditions, over a period of time. Here Miss L. Fittock of Clive removes a bottle from the oven.

Centre: Mr Colin Markwell of Hastings is analysing hops in the lab. A constant check is kept on all raw materials and the beer at all stages of brewing.

ROAD SAFETY

Starting with this issue, a monthly series of articles will be published about Road Safety covering traffic regulations and hints on child safety. It is hoped that this series will assist in some way to revise your knowledge, and in turn help us make the road a safer place.

RIGHT
All vehicles must stop until the School Patrol signs are withdrawn, even if there are no children on the crossing.

WRONG
To proceed before the signs are withdrawn is to break the law and possibly endanger a child‘s life.

MOTORING WITH ROBBIE

THE EASIEST WAY TO LEARN THE VALUE OF MONEY IS TO TRY AND BORROW SOME.

WRAPPING burned distributor points with foil will usually get you to the nearest service station or garage.

To remove a stud without damaging the threads with slip-joint pliers, run a nut down until it is flush with the top of the stud, centrepunch a mark at the threads, drill a small hole, and insert a pin. The pin will lock the nut so that you can unscrew the stud with a wrench.

A rough idea of the number of miles of use your spark plugs have seen since they were last serviced can be obtained by measuring the gap across the electrodes. In the average plug the electrodes wear about .001 inch for each 1000 miles.

An old rear-vision mirror attached to a husky magnet can help you see beneath the manifolds when installing the spark plugs in new V8’s. Place the magnet on the frame with the mirror aimed at the plug openings, and you can work without having to feel your way.

Corrosion can be cleaned from inside distributor cap terminals with a wire brush made from a discarded hand brake cable. Cut the cable near its end and use the threaded adjusting rod as a handle. Unravel a few strands, insert at the terminals, and twist.

When draining the engine, gear box and differential oils it is better to do so after the car has been for a run. Then the oil will be hot and will drain out completely.

Spring breakages can be caused by shock absorbers not operating satisfactorily.

Removing gaskets cleanly when overhauling an engine is sometimes quite a problem. However, if you paint the gasket with ordinary paint remover and let it soak for a few minutes you’ll find that the gasket will strip off cleanly every time.

GATHERING OF THE CLANS

People lined the main street of Waipukurau recently, when pipe bands taking part in the district’s seventh annual gathering of the clans gave a display. Led by marching girls, each band stepped briskly along the street, then marched en masse to the War Memorial Hall where a gay dance followed. City of Hastings band won the A Grade and the trophy for the fall-in, Napier won the B.Grade, and Lindisfarne the C. Grade. Other bands taking part were H.B. Scottish, Feilding and Waipawa.
