Fi rst overseas stamp agency NEW ZEALAND stamps are now sold in Japan through a specially appointed philatelic agency. The agency, administered by British and Overseas Philatelic Agencies Ltd, is the first overseas philatelic agency appointed by the New Zealand Post Office. The agency's task is to promote the sale of New Zealand stamps through displays and Japanese publ ications and to sell stamps and other philatelic material to Japanese philatelists.

Cover service improved TWO IMPROVEMENTS have been made to New Zealand's first day cover service. Orders for unaddressed first day covers will now be accepted up to, and including, the first day of issue.

Previously, excluded.





However, more importantly, as from the Health Stamps issue this year, these covers will now be sold on demand over Chief Post Office counters and other selected offices for a period of eight working days including the first day of issue.

Poster hangs in the balance NEXT YEAR may see another addition to New Zealand's family of stamp posters if sales of 1975's "diamond" poster are favourable. The $1.00 "diamond" poster features 66 stamps compiled on a black background. The stamps are arranged in themes and depict current and past issues.

PdPUd New Guined celebrdtes Independence PAPUA NEW GUINEA celebrated its independence on September 16 with a two stamp commemorative issue and souvenir sheet released on September 10. The stamp issue colourfully shows the geography and the national identity of PNG. The stamps, 7 toea and 30 toea commemorate PNG's gaining of autonomy over its internal and external affairs and its prospective joining of the British Commonwealth as a full member. Today, PNG is a melting pot of some 2 500 000 people of many races, customs and creeds speaking some 700 languages. Major languages are Pidgin, Motu and English. The political progress of PNG towards independence has been a short but exciting one. In time it spans less than 25 years - in development 10000 years I The two stamps and souvenir sheets may be obtained by sending (NZ) 87c to Papua New Guinea Philatelic Agency, P.O.

Preserving. the pioneer In us by Andrea Fox "I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life and see if I could not learn what I had to teach and not when I came to die, discover that I had not lived". These are the words of American poet-essayist Henry Thoreau, his reflections on the silent guardians of outdoor enjoyment and wildlife habitats - the world's forests, woods and bush. New Zealanders have been endowed with nearly one million hectares or 16% of New Zealand's forest in which to wander, picnic, study, hunt, or just ponder the truth of Thoreau's lines.

Ranging from coastal waters to mountainous terrain, these Crown-owned areas have been christened "forest parks". Since the concept was given legislative recognition in 1965, nine State forest parks have been gazetted, six in the North Island and three in the South. Four more have been approved for both islands. Though managed by New Zealand's Minister of Forests and the associated Forest Service, the New Zealand publrc has a governinq interest in the scheme. The Forest Service is assisted by various advisory committees, environmentalists and local volunteer "rangers" in administering each park under a multiple-use concept. Soil and water conservation, birdlife, plantlife and native wildlife protection and public recreation are just some of tt)ese uses. Thousands of New Zealand and overseas visitors view the beautiful forests and mountains of the parks each year. A four stamp issue depicting four New Zealand Forest

The North-west Nelson State Forest Park (8el lies in the north-west corner of the South Island, covering 358 000 hectares and incorporating eight State Forests. Most of the area is under forest cover. The remainder features rocky peaks, some soaring to 1 500 metres, alpine herbfields and lowland swamp scrub.

Native wildlife found in the park include bats, fern birdS, gecko lizards and the gaint carniverous Paryphanta snail, which reaches a diameter of 9 cm. Glow-worms occur in several of the park's limestone caves.

In memoryo~ gal ant ships by Alldn Kirk "'~lewZealand


"Heart of oak are our ships, Heart of oak are our men: We always are ready; Steady, boys, steady; We'll fight and we'll conquer again and again." So said David Garrick (171717791 in his poem "Heart of Oak". He was describing English ships, but his description might well have applied to the first New Zealand ships. For New Zealand's early ships and sailors were hardy specimens, built to withstand the treacherous waters of the then untamed isles of New Zealand. Sh,ipping played an important role in New Zealand's history. It was by sea the Maoris came and I\bel Tasman and Captain Cook thereafter. In recognition of this prominent role the New Zealand Post Office released a set of six stamps featuring New Zealand sailing ships on April 2. Depicted are the scow "Lake Erie" (4cl, the schooner "Herald" (5c), the brigantine "New Zealander" (8cl, the top sail schooner "Jessie Kelly" (lOc), the barque "Tory" (18cl and the full rigged clipper "Rangitiki" (23c).

The stamps were designed by Maurice Conly, of Christchurch, and printed by lithography process by Harrison and Sons Ltd, England.

Soon after Nichols' arrival in New Zealandin the early 1800's he began shipbuilding under the name of Nicco!.

The" Lake Erie" was the first built in New Zealand. Its builder bore the colourful name of Septimus Meiklejohn and the flatbottomed, square-sterned and bluffbowed craft took shape at Omaha in 1873.

He was a prodigious worker and in 10 years working with primitive equipment he built one brig, 16 schooners, 16 cutters, 21 cargo boats and five yachts.


Rigged as a schooner, it could remain on an even keel while aground and run up creeks to take in cargo direct from wood mills. The" Lake Erie" was employed in the timber and firewood trade and carried 80 tons of cargo. The advantages of the design quickly became apparent to early New Zealanders and it wasn't long before more scows were built. One of the most famous and productive New Zealand ship builders of that time was Scotsman Henry Nichols, the son of a Clyde yacht builder.

The vessels included the "Thistle", "Albert", "Undine", "Maukin", "Moa", "Atlantic" and "Waitemata", all names associated with the history and development of New Zealand. Niccol's ships had an international reputation for outstanding quality and seaworthiness and for this reason a Captain Kelly, of Sydney, had Niccol build him the "Jessie Kelly" (lOc). The "Jessie Kelly" was never outsailed and made news in 1873 when she raced the famed Syd ney-bu iIt schooner "Noumea" to New Caledonia. The "Jessie Kelly" wasn't the only speedster in New Zealand waters at the time.

and Gilbert Mair, it was launched on January 24, 1826.


Perhaps it was an omen of the eventual fate of the ship that during construction a carpenter working on the ship used strong language in addressing a Maori chief and nearly brought a catastrophic end to both the mission and the building of the ship. During its lifetime the "Herald" continually ran into problems with Maoris. Even at its launching, problems arose with the local tribe It made five trips across the Tasman in its lifetime and at the close of the fourth voyage, on March 15, 1827, it passed the "Astrolabe" lying at anchor while on a voyage of exploration under Frenchman Dumont d'Urville. Also out on the same morning were northern Maoris in their war canoes, about to embark upon a war exp3dition against tribes of the Hauraki Gulf.

The "Rangitiki", (23c) for years disputed the speed crown for the England-New Zealand journey with the "Westland" of Shaw Savill and Albion's fleet. The "Rangitiki" was the largest of the newly-formed New Zealand Shipping Company's fleet and the first of the famous "Rangi" ships whose names must have a special niche in history_ Built in Hull, England, in 1863, the ship was launched as the "Scimitar" and sailed one voyage under that name The dispute over who held the speed crown - the "Rangitiki" or the "West land" - was never settled, but today the fairest judgment is that both were champions in their own right. It is a sobering reflection on the ti mes, that of the si x sh ips featu red, three sank while in use. One was the mission schooner "Herald" (5c). Built at Paihia in 1825 by the Rev. Henry Williams

Of the scene d'Urville wrote: "Here was this little ship, a scrap of European civilisation, manned by a few peace-loving Englishmen, serving none but the pious and philanthropic aims; whereas these long canoes were going to carry fire and sword to the neighbouring beaches." When the "Herald" left the Bay of Islands for Sydney in December 1827 it had the King's Botanist, Allan Cunningham, as passenger. Little was it realised that this was the vessel's last voyage across the Tasman. After returning to New Zealand on May 2, 1828, the "Herald" left the Bay of Plenty for Hok ianga. While crossing the bar at the mouth of the Hokianga Harbour the wind fell away, leaving it helpless on the breakers. Struggl ing ashore the crew fell into the hands of Maoris who took their clothing and ransacked the ship, leaving nothing but its bare hull. About the same time the "Herald" was being built, Messrs R~ine and Ramsay were establishing a shipbuilding yard at Horeke on the Hokianga Harbour where the

"Herald" met its fate. From this yard came the 150 ton brigantine "New Zealander" (8c). The end for the "New Zealander" in 1836 was swift. While at anchor at Table Cape, she was driven onto rocks in heavy seas. The crew abandoned ship and another vessel fell victim to the hazards of the seas of Aotearoa. The "Tory" (18c) brought the advance party of New Zealand Company men to New Zealand to organise the European settlement of the new found land. "Tory" was built by Frederick Preston, of Suffolk, for Joseph Soames, the noted ship owner, and was registered in May 7, 1834. Sailing under the command of Edward Main Chaffers in her epic voyage to New Zealand, she carried 35 people, including the head of the expedition, Colonel Wakefield. A three¡masted barque (square rigged fore and main, fore and aft on mizen) she was a little bigger than Captain Cook's "Endeavour". At her bow she carried a figurehead of the Duke of Wellington and, like many merchantmen of the time, she carried eight guns. She made a very fast passage of 96 days, a time that was never beaten by any of the Company's ships and only bettered years after. "Tory" arrived in Queen Charlotte Sound on September 17, 1839, and entered Port Nicholson three days later - the figurehead of Wellington staring with sightless eyes at the harbour that was later to bear his name. But "Tory" was eventually wrecked in the Palawan Passage on January 23, 1841. New Zealand's history and the sea are inextricably interwoven - the men who manned the ships, the whalers, the explorers, the sealers and the traders all played their part in the development of the nation.

Many children in New Zealand health camps have emotional problems, says Wellington child psychologist, Don Brown. "They are unable to adapt to learning or social requirements. Health camps help them cope."

The children range in age from five to eleven years and

attend the six permanent health camps situated through· out New Zealand. Each camp

is administered by a camp committee and all camps are controlled by the New Zealand Childrens· Health Camp Board. "Although children attend

the camps for physical reasons, many are disturbed, or unhappy and cannot settle into home or school life. Health camps offer a physically hezlthy environment, organised educational and recreational activities to help overcome their difficulties."

Treatment and other camp facilities are provided by

Soft warm colours tend to browns in much of the design contrasting with the grass and trees in dark and light green shades. Delicate gold hair and daisies scattered on the ground liqhten the design.

activities are encouraged, anything from painting to learning a new song. These activities are offset by more formal subjects such as English and Arithmetic. Doug feels that the key to success is success itself. "I f the children succeed at their own level and pace, it creates a sense of achievement which is important to these kids," Health stamps have given widespread publicity for the Children's Health camps as well as financial support since 1929 more than S2 million in donations have been recorded.

Health stamps were the result of a suggestion by Mr E. Nielsen of Hawke Bay, on behalf of his mother. His inspiration sprang from Denmark, where the proceeds from special Christmas seals were used to help the sick. The New Zealand Post Office Today six camps flourish modified Mr Nielsen's suggesat Maunu, Whangarei; Pakuranga, Auckland; Gisborne; tion so that an actual stamp and not just a seal would be Otaki, Wellington; Glenelg, issued.

New Zealand's first health camp was established in 19t 9, at Turakina, near Wanganui, the brainchild of Doctor Elizabeth Gunn M.B.E.•

Schoolwork must go on even in health camps. A fully equipped school is provided in each camp. Doug Johnston, Principal of Otaki Health Camp school, sees the school as playing a wider role than simply continuing educatio!1. "Children reflect their problems in school work. As a result they can have educational disturbance - school is something they know and understand, it's a good introduction to the camp and through it we can help them." Work is basically the same as in any other school. Creative

Later this was increased to two and, at present, three are issued. Health is a universal word, a combination of many ideals. It's said to be a state of mind by some and a state of body by others. Some see it as a fine balance of the two. Health camps impart heal th to children through the practical application of love and understanding.

"But what soe'er hath been There still must be Room for another rose" Perhaps she would be gratified to kn;Jw that some 50 years later, in 1~75, the rose is still regarded as one of the most honourable and popular flowers in the world. Roses will long remain popular in New Zealand largely because gr Jwing conditions are very favourable. So favourable that following the world Rose Convention held in this country in 1971, one of the world's leading hybridists settled here.
