CARNIVAL

A carnival held recently on the Marine Parade by the combined Pacific Swimming Club and the H.B. Deerstalkers Assn., attracted many people. A feature of the attractions was a coal shovelling exhibition and contest. Here we show Tom Tasker from Wanganui [Whanganui], the New Zealand champion, in action with R. D. Haworth in the pairs section.

Bob Lindon of Napier proved he could handle a coal shovel with the best of them.

Donkey rides were popular with the youngsters.

H.B. v. WHINERAY’S XV

In one of the brightest and most entertaining games of football seen at McLean Park for many years, Hawke’s Bay defeated Wilson Whineray’s Invitation XV before an enthusiastic crowd of approximately 8,000, by 31-27. Here we show the ubiquitous Mac Herewini setting off on one of his slashing runs, whilst “Red” Conway (extreme right) moves up in support.

Halfback Kevin Briscoe fires out a pass, as Wilson Whineray looks back anxiously.
