OUR COVER PICTURES

Back Cover. “What a mouth, what a mouth”, or a dentist’s nightmare, also appears to be a good place to dump one’s garbage. This hippo was scrounging for titbits at the Auckland Zoo recently, a fulltime job it is too, so next time you visit the Auckland Zoo don’t forget the hippo’s.

“THE CRUCIBLE” by Arthur Miller

A powerful dramatic play, based on fact and dealing with witchcraft, was recently presented by the Napier Repertory Players at their little Theatre. Produced by John C. Thomas, the play is set during the 17th century in the United States, and deals primarily with the ability of one person to set off a chain reaction of fear and suspicion in small community which is aided and abetted by the ignorance of the church and those in authority. This kind of thing does happen today, hence the word McCarthyism.

Abigail (Jaque Thomas), who is behind the accusations of witchcraft in the village, points the finger at. John Proctor’s (Bryan Johnson) wife, much to his horror and disbelief. As an underlying plot, Proctor has had an affair with Abigail which is known to Proctor‘s wife.

THE CRUCIBLE

The Pastor’s daughter appears to be bewitched. Wide opinions are running in the Parish that the devil is among them.

“This woman must be hanged! Taken and, hanged”, cries Putnam (Richard Heath) Tituba (Ruth Carlson) confesses to the Rev. Hale (Neville Baker) and the Rev. Parris (Roy Peach).

MOTORISTS –
– Take a Tip from ROBBIE

IF STEERING IS HARD
Under inflation of tyres, although not taken very seriously by the average motorist is one good reason for poor petrol consumption figures, poor engine performance and heavy steering. It is due to the increase in friction and adhesion to the road surface and a consequent lower rolling factor. Under inflated tyres wear out quicker too.

Backfiring when coasting downhill with the car in gear and the foot off the accelerator is usually caused by a weak mixture. Weak mixtures burn slowly and when the exhaust valve opens, are still burning. The cure is to adjust the mixture.

To ensure long life for your battery, keep it fully charged. Check level of electrolyte at regular intervals and keep the terminals clean. If the clamps are corroded dip them in a solution of warm water and baking soda. Half a teaspoonful of baking soda to a cup of water should be sufficient.

The thermostat prevents water from circulating through the radiator until the engine is warm. A sticking thermostat will block the normal flow of water even when the engine is hot and will cause serious overheating with a consequent loss of power.

MEEANEE SCHOOL REUNION

Many former pupils from all parts of New Zealand gathered together recently at the Meeanee School to celebrate what will possibly be the last reunion to be held in the old school, which has now been replaced with a new school. The old school has been in existence for almost ninety-nine years and a local committee, under the chairmanship of Mr. Jim Green, organised the reunion as a fitting farewell to the old school and its many memories. The reunion was a tremendous success, many friends meeting again after many years.

One of the large families of ex-pupils at the reunion was the Pallesen family, whose combined ages totalled more than 400 years.

Jim McDonald, the oldest ex-pupil at the reunion. Jim is 90 years old and still hale and hearty.

Mr. Neilsen, who was the oldest Headmaster present, taught at the school from 1926 to 1938. Mr. Neilsen is pictured cutting the reunion cake.

Ready for the season are Margaret Hanna, Marion McLeod and Robin Boyd.
