Roving Camera


Mr Russ Wilcox, of Stout Street, with his navigator Miss Christine Wilcox, who won the Blogg Co. cup for first place in the recent reliability trial conducted over a course of about 100 miles by the Gisborne Car Club.
The route ranged as far afield as Arowhana and included a number of tests of driving skill.
Mr Wilcox is club captain of the Car Club.


A link with the stirring days of the capture of the rebel Maori chief, Te Kooti, is provided by this "Photo News" picture of Mr C. W. Ferris, of Wairoa, where he lives with his daughter, Mrs J. Carroll. He is photographed here with his great-grand-daughter, Melody Sherwood, while visiting his son and daughter-in-law, Mr and Mrs K. Teh. Ferris, Lloyd George Road, Wainui Beach.
Mr Ferris, now 91, lived most of his life at Wainui Beach, was one of those who assisted with the chase of Te Kooti which led to his capture in 1889.


In spite of warnings which have been issued from time to time, the practice of leaving bottles about on the beach still appears to be prevalent. The pile above was collected by two Surf Club members during a short walk along Waikanae Beach. Broken glass on the beach, or in the rivers, can cause serious injury. and has done so in the past.
