NZ Deaf News: Spring 1967 (Vol. 5, No. 1)

Some of the items featured in the 1967 Spring Issue of ‘NZ Deaf News’ (Vol. 5, No. 1): 

  • Raymond Crosbie has bought a 52 ft ketch and has been working on it in his spare time. It is believed that he is the first deaf man to acquire a yacht of this size in New Zealand.
  • NZ Deaf News asks for more contributions from the Deaf community, other than news provided by its local correspondents. 
  • The Whangarei Deaf Club meets at the local Hard of Hearing Clubrooms, although it is too small to play any big indoor games other than table tennis.
  • Members of the Christchurch Deaf Club visit Sumner to play friendly hockey matches against teams from the Deaf School. The schoolboys were too good for the Club men, winning 5-2, while the schoolgirls drew 2-all with the Club ladies’ team. 
  • ‘Exceptional Work by Deaf Carver’ – John Rua features in the Christchurch Star.
