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

JUST IN CASE

Fifteen hundred of these Charlton Automatic Rifles were manufactured in Hastings during the 2nd World War, in Stan Dougherty’s Garage, and distributed throughout different parts of N.Z. to be used for home defence if N.Z. was invaded. Fortunately this did not occur. This converted .303 Lee Enfield service rifle’s magazine held 30 rounds of ammunition which could be fired singly, the rifle ejecting the empty shell case, reloading and recocking automatically, or, could be fired in bursts at the rate of 750 shots per minute. All the conversion parts were made in Hastings, where the guns were all assembled, tested and passed by an Army Inspector before being dispatched.

Below: Scenes from Mr Dougherty’s garage.

HAPPINESS AT ANY AGE

This is what well known Woman’s Hour Broadcaster with the National Station, Laurie Swindell, proved in a recent documentary which was featured around the subject of Happiness. She interviewed Kindergarten children to begin with, ending up with 98 year olds.

These could be the youngest personalities to speak over the air – and they enjoyed every minute of it.

UNUSUAL BIBLE PRESENTED

Bon Marche, Napier, was the scene of much activity recently. It was all to do with a project organised by The Seventh-day Adventist Church in conjunction with this year’s collection for the British & Foreign Bible Society, whereby the citizens of Napier could write by hand an extract from the Gospel according to St. Mark, sign their name to it, and when the gospel was completely written it would be presented to the Public Library in Napier.

Right: Mrs Pauling of Napier is seen writing her portion. She helped to handwrite the New Testament, at South Dunedin Baptist Sunday School, in her early teens.

IN PREPARATION OF SUMMER

After hours of laborious scraping and cleaning, a group of “Fathers” who volunteered to paint the Napier Central School Baths were on the last lap of their job – preparing the pool for the summer which is now upon us.

Yet another successful Jaycee project – a mighty City spring-clean. They operated a town clean-up in conjunction with the Napier City Council on Saturdays 15th and 29th October. Rubbish collected from householders by Jaycees was taken to the Taradale Dump, where a full-scale sorting team was at work, sorting out scrap which was sellable and sold it to scrap merchants to aid Jaycee funds for future community projects.

DAD’S MORNING OUT

…at the Carlyle Street Kindergarten. Dads turned up with bashful modesty, young fry in tow, clasping the paternal hand with tenacious determination. The object of the exercise was to show the dads how things worked, but, predictably, juniors and young ladies demanded some more time “doing” than watching, as juniors and young ladies demanded some dad-power on the swings etc:

Right: “Oh! What a luverly mess!” – Peter Snr and Peter Avison.

Below right: : Peter Jnr. proves that it was just that.

A “SMASHING” TIME

On October 1st, the Napier South Scouts had a Piano Smashing Competition, to raise funds for an impending trip to Fiji for 22 Scouts. A most destructive piece of fun, but the piano was attacked in all seriousness, when the time-keeper put his watch on the boys, who were: Chris Angove, Barry Short, Graeme Smith, Larry Crabtree, Mark Vaughan and Phillip Wilson. The boys had to smash the piano into bits small enough to be put through a hole 6″ in diameter – they performed their feat in 13 minutes 4 seconds.

Below: The team at the ready.

CLIVE BOARDING CATTERY AND CHILDREN’S ZOO

Now that summer is almost with us, picnics at the local rivers and beaches will be on the weekend agenda. Another ideal outing for a summer’s weekend, or any weekend, is to the Children’s Zoo and Boarding Cattery at Clive – here there is fun and interest for all ages. The younger generation will take delight in the birds, cats, baby deer, ponies etc. The Zoo is situated in a beautiful setting of trees, little creeks and individual “homes” for the animals, all depicting Nursery Rhymes.

Right: Mr Durney with his two children, Caroline and Robert, take a ride in the cart, pulled by pony, Pokey. Visitors are given rides in the cart around the Zoo.

Lower right: This Green Amazon Parrot called Timmy is 45 years old and has quite an extensive vocabulary. Anne MacConnell and Grant Nelson are really having a heart to heart talk with Timmy.

Below left: Lofty Llama has spotted Peter Hebdern. What a marvellous asset Lofty’s neck is, he wouldn’t develop a crik with turning his head too far, that’s for sure.

Below centre: This fine specimen is called “Cocky”, he is a 90 year old Cockatoo. He also has a wide range of sayings and loves mimicking all who speak to him.

Below right: Grant Nelson has made a new friend, with 2 year old “Flopsy”, the adorable white rabbit. Flopsy, who has very reddy-pink eyes, is the pet of most children who visit the Zoo.

Bottom centre: “Bamby” [Bambi] , the 8 month old deer, is just going to, or has just been fed by Caroline Durbey, while David Hepdern watched on.

N.Z. TRANSPORT DEPARTMENT

ROAD SAFETY
Should Father Christmas call at your home leaving your child a bicycle, please teach that child how to ride before turning he or she loose on the open road.

Teach your children around the house, on the lawn. The dents will then be in the lawn, not on your child.

Rules to remember
1. Don’t permit cycling too young.
2. Make sure the cycle is safe and not too big.
3. Mounting and dismounting should always be done from the left hand side of the cycle.
4. Can they signal while cycling?
5. Most important: Do they always look behind before turning?

Make an obstacle course with wooden blocks 3″ x 2″ x 4″, place them 5′ apart and teach the child concerned to cycle in and out the blocks. This teaches cycle control – try it yourself!

LABOUR DAY SPORTS

A clear sunny day dawned the day of the Labour Day sports which were held at Farndon Park, Clive. Those attending the sports made the most of the sun, and one witnessed numerous families lunching under surrounding trees. Sir Walter Nash, who was also present, presented the prizes for the many competitions held.

There was fun for all ages, even on the Merry-Go-Round, and in most cases there was a “Dad or Mum” waiting at the end of the ride to lift their respective children down – like this “Dad” top right.

MOTORING WITH ROBBIE

Fitting Wing Mirrors

1. Select a point about one-third of the way back along the mudguard. Get someone to hold the mirror there while you sit in the driving seat to make sure you can see the mirror without having to crane past a windscreen pillar.

2. When you have selected the spot, centrepunch it and use a good sharp punch to make a deep impression, otherwise the drill might run out of the centrepunch mark and cut a groove in the paint work.

3. Drill a quarter-inch hole or smaller but don’t try to use a drill the full size of the hole needed because it will almost certainly run off the centrepunch mark. Remember that the mudguard is not very thick.

4. Next put a larger drill through the pilot hole. As the metal is so thin it is most unlikely that a truly round hole will result so for this reason the large drill should be at least a sixteenth of an inch smaller in diameter than the final size.

5. File the hole to a perfect roundness and check with the mirror stem at frequent intervals. Don’t use a file so large that it will stick in the hole, and hold it at an angle to the surface while you’re filing. Don’t be in too big a hurry or the file may pull right out and scratch the paint.

6. Paint the metal edges of the hole or treat with an anti-rust compound before applying the paint.

7. If the mirrors are of the flyback type, fill the plastic cups with thick grease before the final assembly. This will prevent any seepage of rainwater in service and also help the flyback action.

8. Make sure you have the washers in the correct order – the rubber washer on top of the mudguard and the plain one underneath. An extra rubber one between the plain type and the mudguard metal is a good idea. Set the arms at right angles to the centre line of the car and tighten up.

A DAY AT THE BEACH
With Members of the Westshore Surf Club

The Westshore Surf Life Saving Club’s season is now in full swing, commencing on the 16 October. Bathers can attend the beaches at Westshore, or any other part of H. B. with the knowledge that trained men and women such as these are in attendance to keep a watchful eye on those persons in difficulty, etc. The Westshore Club caters for many other beach-goers’ needs as well as saving their lives. They have a Lost Property Office for children as well, First Aid Post, and have recently incorporated a N.Z. standard Shark Alarm. The voluntary work of the members will make our summer even happier and worry free. Photo News visited the Surf Club at Westshore to gain an inside picture of their activities both “business and leisure” wise.

CAMERA PATROL

Changing Shoreline

Readers will remember in our June 1966 issue an old photograph of the Gannet Sanctuary at Cape Kidnappers, and will have noted the extraordinary change which has taken place over the years. We asked if any reader had a photograph taken recently in the same spot, and if so to send it in and we would publish same with the original. A reader, Mr. B. McKenzie of Napier, sent in the photograph on the left, and below is the original. A close inspection will reveal the works of nature.

So That’s Where Everyone Was!

Where was everyone during Labour Weekend???? Photo News found out after cruising for many hours around the cities of Hastings and Napier in search of Camera Patrol material, that everyone, yes everyone was at the Dolphin Pool on Marine Parade Napier. Not so bad a place to be either, with the Hawke’s Bay sun beating down on the gay frolicsome pool inhabitants.

LIFE MEMBERS

One Life Member for this month is Jim Hepburn, who is seen here being presented with a Life Membership Badge, at the Marist Football Club Ball held recently in Napier, by Father Ward.

Mr Hepburn has been a member of the Marist Club since 1935, has played 3rd, 4th and Junior grade football, this being up until the war when he was away for three years.

Born in Gisborne and moving to Napier in 1932, Mr Hepburn has been coaching since 1946. A family man who has been busy with Rugby activities, Mr Hepburn still has time to take a great interest in one of his sons, who, though not a footballer, is in a H.B. Golf team. His other son is in Std. 1 at school, but may one day follow in his Dad’s footsteps.

Mr Hepburn is also a Napier Selector for Lower Grade football and has been working in this capacity for 10 or 11 years.

Cricket is also a keen summer sporting activity for Mr Hepburn.

Our other Life Member this month is Mr Jim O’Rourke, who was also presented with a Life Membership Badge by Father Ward at the Marist Football Club’s Ball.

Mr O’Rourke, who has played in all grades in the front row, was born in Napier, and has been a member of the Marist Club since 1933. Mr O’Rourke spent 4 1/2 years overseas during the war, but resumed his activities with the club on his return. He coached 3rd grade for three years, Club Captain for three seasons, and was Captain of 3rd, 4th, Junior and Senior Grade Teams.

Mr O’Rourke has no sons to follow in his footsteps, but if one of his daughters had a chance she would.

Mr O’Rourke works for T. & W. Young.

1966 A. & P. SHOW

As in the past, the 1966 Hawke’s Bay A. & P. show which was held at Tomoana Showgrounds over the period 18th, 19th and 20th of October, was a great success, drawing as usual large crowds of farmers from all over the Bay, also those who attended on “Peoples Day”. This year’s Show offered a mass of interesting exhibits from the latest farm machinery, cars etc. to interest the men folk, down to the Cookery and Handiwork exhibitions which took the interest of the women. For the “young ‘uns” there were a host of things to do and see, including a miniature circus.

Left: Entered by Baillie Motors, is this fabulous “swept-up Vauxhall” going under the Royal name of “Viscount”, only a mere £1,950! I’ll take two!

The present increasing interest in Caravans was well catered for by large displays of every type, price and range of caravan.

50th ANNIVERSARY

The Onekawa Hotel was the venue for the 50th anniversary celebrations of A. Dykes & Sons, Motor Body Builders since 1916, when this business was founded by Mr A. Dykes Snr., it has come a long way from being originally a coach factory in the horse and cart era, gradually changing over the years with the coming of the car industry. The original business was carried on by Mr Dykes Snr’s two sons Mr A. and Mr J. Dykes, who in 1960 opened new premises in Hyderabad Road.

CHANGING FACE OF THE TAUPO-NAPIER ROAD

Mighty changes on the Taupo-Napier road are taking place at the moment. Here is a view down the new road, showing part of the old road winding into the distance, down to the old Stoney Creek bridge.

Below: Also part of the new deviation is this enormous culvert, believed to be the biggest in N.Z. It is 22 feet in diameter and 220 feet long, along the base. The culvert is about the size of a railway tunnel. It cuts the tortuous corner, which many motorists have said a silent prayer about, after leaving the Stoney Creek bridge going towards Taupo.

Also on the Napier-Taupo road are shots taken showing the effect of modern farming methods on the once unusable pumice plateau, between Rangitaiki and the foothills on the left, and the uncultivated ground on the right.

TO CAPE REINGA AND BACK
BY CAR AND AN OXFORD CARAVAN
From FIRMAN’S SERVICE STATION NAPIER
By D. Hanger and Photographer B. MacConnell

Two issues back, the footnote to the Hanger-MacConnell caravan saga said, in bold black print: NEXT MONTH – OREWA. Followers of this story may be assured that our travellers did not, in fact, disappear off the face of the Cape Reinga-Napier Road. All that happened was that our narrator was so busy answering his fan mail (which basically consists of bank statements covered in pretty red figures), that he missed the deadline. Unfortunately we couldn’t fire him as this would have left his readers stranded somewhere between a small town (in which stood a denuded petrol pump) on the Pakaraka-Orewa highway. We now pick up the story on the approaches to Orewa.

Although two months have passed since I last sat at the typewriter to continue my story on our caravaning expedition, it is still Monday, in terms of our progress. It is very dark. It is very wet; since leaving the township where I had done battle with the petrol pump, the heavens had opened up, apparantly [apparently] determined to add still further to my misery. Continual visions of the inevitable return to Napier and its attendent meeting with Frank Firman, owner of the now yellow-striped caravan, did nothing to restore my mind to that state of happy holidaying which had existed before tearing a hole in the caravan.

Our eventual arrival at Orewa, ahead of Bruce who was now towing the caravan, was not exactly a happy event either. It was still raining, hard; a factor which caused misgivings when we found our way barred by what appeared to be a firmly secured chain. A call across the road to the camp manager’s house elicited the information that this had been placed in position to keep out the Auckland “surfies” who, we were told, were inclined to take over the place unless checked.

Having duly booked in, on the understanding that we would pick our own unoccupied site, we drove back across the road – a much drier method of getting from point “a” to point “b” than walking – unhooked the chain, drove through the gate, through a couple of minor lakes, and arrived at the camping site proper. “Well, Margaret.” I said, “we aren’t going to have any trouble sorting out which site we want.” This was the largest camping ground we had visited – it reportedly had some 45 power-point caravan plots. Too, across the vast expanse of very wet looking grass, there wasn’t a caravan or tent to be seen. We had the whole place to ourselves.

Have you ever been to a beach and, on arrival, found that you were the only ones there? Haven’t you then wondered, with fearful forebodings of disaster, why on earth no one else had chosen this spot? lt’s unlikely that such a situation would arise, unless it was midnight in the middle of a blizzard, but you will no doubt be able to picture such a horrifying sight. We immediately decided we would look elsewhere and find some human company – perhaps everyone but us knew that if it rained hard enough, this camp would become a boating marina.

Back out through the gates. Hook up the chain again. And off to greener pastures. Bruce still hadn’t arrived, and experience told us that we had plenty of time to explore the

rest of Orewa’s camping possibilities. Explore we did, but every camp we looked at, even though many of them were populated by other winter travellers, was far less inviting than the one we had just left. Obviously, Orewa had been the recipient of a very large gallonage of heavenly lubrication.

An examination of all the facts available showed that the Domain Camp had more to offer than anywhere else, not least of which was a high and dry tarsealed internal roading system. With that, we parked ourselves on the highway and waited with resigned patience for Bruce and Margaret M. to arrive.

Just when we were beginning to conclude that a search party was called for, the twin “mast head” lights of a caravan loomed up out of the downpour. Naturally, Bruce sailed right past without seeing us, but a quick manoeuvre placed us in front of the Peugeot, and like a pilot dolphin we guided our companions back to the gate-with-a-chain.

No sooner had we driven into the camp than “Hughie” put the plug back in the terrestial drain pipe, thus allowing us to inspect our temporary real estate in comfort. A tour of the cluster of very modern and expansive camp buildings immediately showed that here we had found the best and cleanest camp facilities to date. In the process we switched every switch in sight and soon had the immediate surroundings lit up like a mid-summer’s day. Actually, I felt like a truant school let loose on a deserted battleship (although it would probably be more appropriate to suggest spaceship, in this day and age). I felt that glorious sensation of doing something daring, something that I would not have been brave enough to do, if the camp had been full of people: switching on lights, turning taps on and off, testing the showers (and discovering a sixpence was necessary to prove that the hot-water tap was true to label), exploring the cook-house and the wash-house (which, rather remarkably, contained a washing machine), and generally acting like an F.B.I. Agent looking for clues.

Now that we had the benefit of a few thousand candle-power to light the way, Bruce manoeuvred the caravan alongside the tarsealed road, hooked up to the power, and we settled in for the night.

In the morning, the sun shone bright and clear, so off we went to view the breathtakingly beautiful Orewa Beach. It is seen best from a high point on the highway at the northern end of the beach. From here the viewer takes in the broad sweep of the bay with the extraordinarally width of gently sloping white sand backed by a multitudinous array of motels, cabins, beach houses, camps and parks. And further over to the west, across the main north highway, the clean and modern blocks of shops and business houses flank the spread of the township itself. Orewa is a delightful spot, summer or winter, and none who venture there will be disappointed. Like all delightful coastline recreational areas, which are within an hour or two’s drive of an over-populated city, Orewa becomes a seathing [seething] mass of people during summer weekends, all of them working furiously at the business of relaxing. It is that peace, only attainable in winter travel, which made up for all the trials and tribulations of our mid-winter tour.

At lunch time, we regretably headed south again. With our departure came the darkened skies and the realisation that once more we must fight our way through the snarling mobility of the so called “Queen City” (it is my opinion that it should be re-named the “Devil’s Catacombs”) which, because of its frenzied, stop-start, motorisation, could never be described as being Queenly. However, it appears Auckland does have its weak spot

and that’s 2.30 p.m. on a mid-winter Tuesday afternoon. The little man who sits up in his tower switching on and off the traffic lights, obviously had his glasses on us. We flowed through the city of red and green, which for us had become a city of green – perhaps it was because I had my sun-glasses on – with hardly a faulter [falter]. Before we knew it, we were Lording it along a practically deserted motorway. Bruce and Margaret M., who had relinquished the towing chore, branched off into the city to attend to some business. “See you at Rotorua later tonight.” At 11 o’clock the next morning . . . .

Rotorua was our objective, and we made it in grand style, arriving just in time to drop in unexpectedly on good old Mum.

“Hullo! Where have you come from?”

“Oh! We’ve just been on a Sunday drive, to Cape-Reinga.”

“Have you had tea?”

“No. Not yet. We were just on our way over to the camp to do battle with the camp kitchen, so don’t worry, we’ll be on our way,” said I, making steady progress towards the liquor cabinet, the open fire and TV. (I’d been watching a 9-inch portable for long enough to look upon this one as having all the attractions of a centrally heated Cinerama Theatre)”

After tea, a pleasant chat (on the Lions Tour, in the dining room, and in the kitchen, on the uselessness of men) and a promise to call again next year, we headed off back to the Rotorua Municiple Camp with its heated pools and tarsealed roads, to our caravan which we now had to ourselves – naturally, we had set it up before dropping in on the maternal provider “on our way to the camp kitchen”!

Once again, King Sole greated [greeted] us in the morning, but this time he stayed with us until our arrival back in Napier. While waiting for our errant partners, who once again been unavoidably delayed over the dimness of a high-priced, low-lit restaraunt dinner, theatre, and five-star hotel room (at least, those are the unkind thoughts which passed through my ruffled mind that morning). I, martyr-like, washed down the car and caravan, making very sure I was still hard at it when the revellers returned. Good naturedly, I refused to question Bruce on his late arrival. ln fact, I refused to talk to either of them for at least half-an-hour. I eventually pointed out that it was most thoughtless of them not to have telephoned a message through to the effect that they were delayed, without adding that they weren’t going to arrive all that night. After all, said I, I had gone to bed that night expecting them to barge in at any tick of the clock.

My tearful monologue was completely lost on Bruce, with the result that I gave up. With that we all piled into the car and set off to see and experience the sights of Rotorua. That evening, we drove to Taupo, staying overnight before tackling the Taupo Hills and Frank Firman.

I will not dwell on the home-coming, for our trip had been a very pleasant one and our arrival back in Napier meant a return to the humdrum of vacuum cleaning, stubbed toes and three-course meals for the girls; lawns, office and time-clock living for Bruce. and I. Suffice to record that the restoration of our possessions to their rightful places was nowhere near as exciting as our preparations had been. It had-been an eventful trip, and one which now causes enviable glances at Frank Firman’s ever changing Caravan Park every time I drive past, which unfortunately is about four times a day.

“Margaret. Let’s take out a caravan next weekend and spend couple of days at Waimaramara, or Clifton, or Ocean Beach or Waipataki,or …”

Unbeknown to the pilot of this Caulair topdressing aircraft, Mr D. Cameron, the aircraft’s undercarriage was damaged. The sharp eyes of a Gisborne air control officer and the efforts of a local pilot, Mr W. Cookson, drew Cameron’s attention to the fact that something was amiss; he was able to make a beautiful landing on the left wheel of the plane and coasted to a stop with the right wing resting gently on the grass.

YOUR BIRTH STAR INFLUENCES
An Introduction to Astrology with the signs of the zodiac by “Lenah”

CALENDAR FOR DECEMBER

ARIES: – March 21st to April 19th
Partners may be over-wrought, inclined to be bossy, to impose. Make sure you have ironclad agreements. Settle things for your own benefit or later regret laxness. A dear one may try to drag you into a quarrel, not of your own making. Clarify your feelings. Travel is good. Faraway interests are under excellent auspices with unexpected results. A spell over Christmas – perhaps a loved one sick.

TAURUS: – April 20th to May 20th.
Re-investigate the actions of others especialLy children. There’s luck to those who have made friends and are on good terms with employers, authorities etc. Mercury gives you things quickly. Your intuition is good at this time. But a health upset, your own or other’s or temperament of associates could complicate the picture. This should pass. The year ends on a happy note. Some helpful person soothes, gives correct counsel.

GEMINI: – May 21st to June 21st.
Would be wise to restrain your own opinions and listen. But 6th-12th emphasizes strength of character. Those important to you can be impressed by a special attitude of courage on your part. All things concerning the opposite sex are stimulated strongly. Trips or visits even across town, will probably create romantic circumstances that astonish. There will be a decision that is difficult because it involves renouncing some prestige, on the altar of sentiment. Excitement and creative glory across the entire holiday season for you. Such energies can be expressed through happiness, with children, artistic achievement or merely riotous living and thrilling adventures.

CANCER: – June 22nd to Ju1y 22nd.
You could be out of temper this month! Therefore discount many things you feel and don’t let others see you when you are not at your best. Visits, journeys that are necessary for any economic or practical reason. Some will complete a course or gain from an examination. Might be disgusted with those nearby. You will be inclined to be harsh with the whims and ideas of others. Button your lips on words you know might wound. Let your partner lead in matters of the holidays or Christmas. Impressions you make on the public are best.

LEO: – July 23rd to August 23rd.
Good for travel, contacting far places, red tape, and legal questions, something you have studied in the past comes to your rescue. This is a good time for starting some classes as well as a gay holiday season. Much travel or visiting is likely. Try not to let this Xmas season drain you of strength. Family or friends could be in opposition to your plans or desires. It is necessary for you to recoup strength or resources, do so quietly. Interview for jobs.

VIRGO: – August 24th to September 23rd.
Venus the planet of diplomacy is assisting you with questions of property, residence, and family members who may be upset. You will be able to approach someone with the proper psychology. Don’t believe you can buy something such as love, affection or prestige. Save your money. Wisdom comes to your aid in the midst of other people’s crises. Wait and keep silent. There will be some problem or a strange event during the Christmas season. Obstacles to old plans can suddenly shift all your arrangements. Month’s end is fraught with problems in relation to residence, property and things belonging to others.

LIBRA: – September 24th to October 24th
A wonderful time for leadership! Your personality is spotlighted. Also your temper is higher than usual. Try not to let what others say or do become too important. Particularly exercise discretion and regard to their secrets. May run into a series of confusing situations and be tempted to tell somebody off. Don’t! Venus, the planet of Love, will heal many past rifts. Your new year actually begins this month, and you would be wise to promote a new project during Christmas season. Some will marry, others begin new careers.

SCORPIO: – October 25th to November 22nd.
It will be difficult to keep secrets, very few of your own private plans turn out as originally scheduled. Pay attention to budgeting, finances – especially to finishing something of great importance for 1967 – Some surprises that blast you out of complacency. Will be able to unravel the most intricate problems but this one may have to do with past miscalculated belief in another. Keep your eye on special objectives. Trips, visits are tempting, possibly filled with romance. Christmas could be a time of crisis or troubles for others that interfere in your plans.

SAGITTARIUS: – November 23rd to December 21st
Some popularity. Will forget duties. A secret anxiety may nag at your conscience. But friends seem to prevent you getting down to brass tacks. You will bluff your way through. Much practical effort will be necessary to accomplish something started or promised. Don’t overspend. Don’t neglect some property question that could come up. Put your mind on a more practical issue but you are not likely to heed this warning.

CAPRICORN: – December 22nd to January 19th
Will charm others. Quarrels with older peeple, or authorities could mar an otherwise excellent cycle. Try not to let obstacles stand in your way. Organise your time and complete things as quickly as possible. Make preparations for something about to dawn. This Xmas you could win someone over to your way of thinking. Entertainers or those who must meet the public are favoured. Don’t be too extravagant. The year ends on a secret bit of news that might be disquieting.

AQUARIUS: – January 20th to February 18th.
Some turmoil regarding partnership and secret affairs. Will be making many friends – don’t forget old ones. A good month for trips visiting and conferring with others brings more than just valuable information. Some climax which is secret of clandestine. The Xmas will be quiet and probably in some private way more satisfying. Keep everything on a tranquil and almost secret plane. Something is beginning in the life of friends which will demand decisions and possibly require you to take sides. Don’t express yourself.

PISCES: – February 19th to March 20th.
Try to hold your temper and enthusiasms at a controlled pitch. Some of you will be in the public eye, winning prizes, awards etc. Will rebuke someone or lead when you would prefer to follow. May be involved with friends to an extent that is foolish. It can be a strain on your health and it might mar the otherwise happy Christmas season. Your instinct and intuition come to your rescue and you will be able to get your thoughts across to a friend, to save the day for someone else. Will be restless, strife-ridden at times.
