HALL A UCKLAND New would be hard to imagine a more favorable introduction to any new land than the view which stretched out before us as our giant Douglas plane nosed down through a layer of fleecy cloud and soared over Aucklands har bor waters to a landing on the ailport which serves this city of almost c o u n t i n g its suburbs Thou sands of red roofs djatted the terraced land areas separated from each other by coves and mountain fed streams empty ling into the W EARL HALL Auckland h a r bor In color effect the view was reminiscent of North Africas Al giers or Chiles Vina Del Mar After a noon meal at a down town hotel some 12 miles from the airport we drove about the city in a shiny new American made automobile Pontiac and saw at close range the beauty which had presented us from the air And it lost nothing by the closer scrutiny I can as sure you It would have im pressed even a Southern Califor nian by its resemblance to that section of our own country Awkward Time Natives kept telling us apolo getically that their flowers had passed their greatest beauty Theres an awkward time they explained between spring which reaches its zenith in October and summer which hits its peak in January But their apology was wasted on two lowans who a scant fort night previously had left a trace of snow and a belowfreezing tem perature The blooms we found in Aucklands

Romes claims to fame lay in its position on sev en hills The same criterion should make Auckland even more famous vVithin its borders are at least 10 extinct volcanoes with clearly defined craters Most of these have been converted into public parks and offer a magnifi cent view of the city and its en virons as distant as 50 miles Roads lead to the top of the tallest of these peaks They wind through lanes of trees including New Zealands world famous pines and the upper reaches of the mountains are covered with a turf which would be the envy of any American golf club Perhaps youd like the job of keeping these precipitous lawns mowed Sorry Youre too late The job has been taken Thou sands of New Zealands most pop ulous quadrupeds sheep are munching on the grass and re turning the
