ANTI-BILL BOARDERS ATTEMPT
TO PUT CRIMP IN AUTO MEET
Promoters Refused Press No
t:ces and Entries Withdrawn
' Influenced apparently by a campaign
which has been waged in certain quar
ters against advertising on billboards,
former Governor George R. Carter this
morning withdrew his sanction of the
automobile race meet which is to be
held this afternoon at Kapiolani Park
and at the same 4.ime withdrew his
entries in the 'races on the ground
that he could not take part in a meet
which was advertised on billboards.
He so informed Ndrmau B. Courtenay.
one of the promoters of the meet, this
morning, adding that he had mailed h
letter to Courtenay setting forth what
lie told him in person.
Courtenay stated that the with
drawal of the twocars a few hours
before the meet might have crippled
the program but that other entries had

Courtenay this morning. "Possibly we
would not have advertised on bill
boards if we had known there was going-
to be opposition to our meet on
this account but when, after we had
arranged for this. class of advertising,
a morning paper attempted to dictate
to ns by saying that unless we tore
-down : our billboard advertising we
- would get ;tio mention in its columns.
we felt that this was trespass on our
rights and went ahead without sucb
publicity as the paper in question
might have been able to give.
lt seems rather hard that five
young fellows who, in the inte'rest of
sport, have spent their money and time
to get up a meet as an attraction for
the public should have to suffer be
cause of the extreme esthetic sense of
