Fashion on wheels, the Tam Cochrane show arrives in Napier.

Once again we were privileged to witness Tam Cochrane’s “Gown of the Year” contest, with its five glamorous models modelling the fourteen fabulous creations.

One of the highlights of our fashion world, the Tam Cochrane show has proved that the New Zealand designer is an equal to the world’s best.

Bird of Paradise, modelled by Gillian Aldam.

“Tosca” the winning gown, designed by Rosewitha Robertson of Hastings. A superb gown in Plum satin, and lines twin train panels. A lavish design in black, ruby and silver, grey and crystal beads riots across the skirt and bodice. This frock is received into a black velvet coat embroidered with Jet.

What a wonderful effort it was for the people of Takapau to raise 2,500 pounds in a King Carnival for School Funds. The target for this Carnival was 500 pounds.

Four School Bus driver’s were selected. King Arthur (Snee); King Wally (Stevens); King Roy (Hames); King Bill (Carman). Committees were set up and money was raised, with dances, cake stalls, barbecues, stock drives. Special lunches at school, raffles, male deb. Ball, etc.

After four weeks this was finalised with a Gala Day. Four floats, respectively carrying each King and Queen paraded through the crowded streets and to the school grounds. Stalls, a Hangi, and generally a day of fun for all, was brought to a climax when King Arthur was announced the winning King.

A dance to celebrate this grand effort was held in the evening.

King Bill Carman‘s school bus children turn out in full, all dressed in gold.

To help keep their young footballers fit and interested, the Tech Old Boys’ Football Club, with the help of Mr. Eric Hogge have been running keep fit classes of a novel nature during the winter months, for their seventh to ninth grade footballers.

On the track. Members of the Hastings Boys’ High School Crusader Union with fully laden packs, make their way in towards the approach to Black Birch Range from Puketitiri, and thence to Makahu hut during their four day camp.

The Crusader Movement has been organising camps for secondary school boys and girls for the past 30 years, and every care is taken to ensure a safe and enjoyable holiday. The Crusader Movement is an interdominational society working in the secondary schools of New Zealand. More than 190 Crusader Unions meet each week in our schools and attendance is voluntary. Throughout the Christian era the Church has found in the years of adolescence the most propious time for intelligent enlistment of the new generation in the cause of Christ. But very many young people in their teen-age years find that amidst the daily duties and demands of school life, the foundations of character are put to the test and faith either becomes a personal conviction or is cast aside.

In this setting is a matter of Christian strategy to band together in voluntary groups within their schools, girls and boys who desire to know Christ and His power in their lives. Thus Crusader Unions meet weekly for half an hour to promote Christian fellowship and witness.

Each Crusader Union functions with the consent of the school principal. Leadership is entrusted only to approved Christian men and women, who understand youth and its problems. Many are members of school staffs. Basic non-denominational Biblical teaching is given and the need for active connection with some branch of the Church is upheld.

The direction and supervision of the Crusader Movement is in the hands of a staff of Travelling Secretaries. This summer the Crusader Movement has organised nine exciting camps throughout the Dominion.

Checking up on the state of his heels after a few hours march in to Makahu is David Winters of the Hastings group.

Focal point for all eyes is the steaming pot on the fire as the Crusaders prepare lunch at a small stream at the foot of the Black Birch Range. Each boy carried packs with from 30-50 pounds of provisions.

Billowing smoke from an outside fire signifies a good meal on the way for tired trampers. Trevor Moran (left) Hastings, and Jim Irwin (right) from Napier, get a word of friendly advice from Dr. Martin, the camp commandant.

In the thick beech forest of the Eastern Kaweka Ranges the Crusaders prepare for a big days hike. They are standing in front of Makahu Hut, owned and operated by the New Zeland Forest Service. From left to right the boys are, Richard Howell, Graham Maunsell, Colin Winters, Trevor Morley, Jim Irwin, Murray Isdale, Dennis Fountain, Chris Mardon, David Winters (behind), Gordon Baker, Peter Scrimgeour, Derek Gabrielle, Dr. Vine Martin (rear), Rodney Stevens and Trevor Moran (kneeling).

Negotiating a steep scree slope the boys are pictured making their way from Makahu Hut to the top peak of the Eastern Kaweka Range.

Another Hillary in the making – Junior leader of the Hastings Crusader Union, Dennis Fountain, carried more than his share during the four days camp. He often returned down the track to relieve a younger boy’s burden as shown above.

Making their way up a broken scree ridge the Crusaders are outlined against the overcast sky.

A few hundred feet from the summit of Kaweka Trig J the boys stop for lunch. Climbing in the face of a howling gale the party made the top complete with every item of alpine clothing on. Fairly steep snow covered ridges broken with rocky outcrops are a feature of the Kaweka Range.

A spectacular three-car pile-up closed a section of the main Napier-Hastings highway near Awatoto recently and resulted in two people being taken to hospital. The first picture shows the most extensively damaged car and the other a view of the position when the three cars came to rest. The road was blocked through the night and opened in the early morning.

During demolition of old houses on Napier‘s Marine Parade recently, a wooden shingle roof was discovered under an existing iron roof. The house is being removed to make way for a modern block of flats.
