Six Months in Aussie

Watch for Finalist

Speaking Out

Off the Buses


Mr Tony Ciprian, journalist in charge of radio and TV news for Radio 2ZG, is taking six months' leave of absence to go across the Tasman. While over there Mr Ciprian will make a study of Australian radio and TV news techniques.


Serena Bartlett, 9 Waverley Street, as a finalist from the Gisborne region for the Australia versus New Zealand College Quiz, was presented with a handsome watch. The New Zealand side was handled through the Post Office Savings Bank, but the quiz was organised and sponsored by Coles Supermarkets of Australia which gave the watches. At the presentation were, from left, Mr R. Thompson (manager of the P.O.S.B,), Mrs L. R. Bartlett and Serena, and Mr R. B. McKenzie (chief postmaster, Gisborne).


The three entrants for the secondary schoolgirls' Rotary oratory contest are shown here with the chairman for the contest, Rotarian Peter Robinson. From left they are Rosemarie Carlyle (St Mary's College), Trudy Steele (Girls' High School), and Helen Korver (Lytton High). The winner was Rosemarie Carlyle.


Retiring after 31 years "on the buses" with the New Zealand Road Services is Mr Syd Drummond, Ranfurly Road. Apart from "specials" that have taken him all over the North Island, and the odd trip up the coast, Mr Drummond has spent the last 21 years of his driving service on the Gisborne-Opotiki run.
