The Nelson Photo News



Roving Camera


Arthur Lydiard, famed the world over now as coach of Murray Halberg, Peter Snel and Barry Magee, visited Nelson last month on a lecture tour of the Dominion. He is seen here with junior milers Ian Wells, B. Price, Des Coad and George Griffiths at an evening meeting of the Nelson Athletic and Cycling Club. At right he is watching Coad during the running of the junior mile. Coad has already achieved prominence as an up-and-coming middle-distance runner.


Visitors to the Tapawera field day included Russell Stevenson and his possum friend.


Barry Sixtus, at 16, was the youngest member of the Nelson Gun Club competing in the provincial championships and he received his 75 badge for breaking 75 consecutive targets.
