Fifteen year of John CUNNINGHAM saved a Newmans bus from blazing in central Hastings today. The drama made an exciting first day to Johns school holiday job at the Karamu Mower Court Karamu Rd Hastings. Just before noon John saw smoke and flames coming from the drivers side of the bus as it travelled south along Karamu Rd. Accompanied by 16-year-old Anthony IRWIN, they chased the bus a quarter of a mile to the At Aubyn St Intersection, where they managed to cut in front of the bus Told the driver about the fire, got the 15 passengers moving out, and used the bus fire extinguisher to put out a small fire in the engine. Mr Ray WEBSTER, the driver, was unaware of the fire. The Manager of the Newmans Coach Lines, Hastings, Mr R J CARDO, said John deserved a vote of thanks for his actions. Mr WEBSTER and the deputy chief fire officer Mr A P BLACKMORE also thanked him.Gisborne Train derailed Page 1 GISBORNE NZPA
Police are convinced that the derailment of a goods train one mile from GISBORNE station last night was deliberate. The mechanical engineer in charge of the district from Wellington to Gisborne, Mr L C UPTON was in Gisborne on a routine visit and he estimated damage of $50,000 and said that with a little luck the line could be open tomorrow night. The engine drivers, Mr Joe BLAIR and Mr Russell DICKSON were shaken but uninjured. They were able to clamber from the cab after it came to rest by the side of the track. The guard Mr T LIMA and a 14-year-old passenger, Francis WATT, were in the rear end of the train, which did not leave the tracks. Rest of page is unreadable-ElaineTAURANGA Page 1 NZPA
