THE TRUTH ABOUT SPORT

NO MARATHON RACE
FOR ANOTHER MONTH
Twenty-five Candidates Have
Turned Out at McKinley and
Coaches Find Good Material
The McKinley High School boys are .
snowing spirit ana piuc tnis year
which reflect a -great deal of credit
on them. In previous years they have
relinquished the first place In football
to their rival Punabou. but only after,
a determined struggle. This year,
however, the boys are going Into the
game to win, and are ably assisted
by P. N. Folsom. director of athletics;
A. L. Hall and F. M: Friesell, coaches.
Mr. Polsom deserves a good deal
of credit for the interest he has shown
In the team. He does not claim to
be a professional coach, but each year
he turns out with the oys and gives
bis afternoons to them, and they in
turn do their best for him. '
Mr. Hall Is a graduate of the Uni
versity of Illinois and was a star
quarterback on the college team.
Mr. Friesell Is a well-known ath
lete in Honolulu. He takes great in
terest in the McKinley boys. and gives
as much of his spare time as possible
to the coaching of the football team.

Fort De Russy Runners Willing
to Take on; Soldier King but
want Time to Train
According to Soldier King there
will be ho race between himself and
a relay team for at least a month
King is willing to go the distance
with a couple of weeks training, but
his prf.pective opponents need more
time to prepare themselves, and from
a business standpoint King, thinks
that a postponement would be to the
advantage of alL
Yesterday " the , rececYly-returned
champion went out to Fort De Russy
and had a chat with the three En
gineer Corps men who have express
ed a willingness to . take him on In
a 15-mlle race. He says they are a
likely trio, and- that he quite appre
ciates their desire to get into better
condition, and is quite willing to wait.
, One of the' three, Bernstein, seems
to be something of an ink slinger, as
well as a cinder spiker, for he has
come out. with ; the. following- letter
published 1r the morning paper:
-We have read 'of .'Soldier'. King's
desire to meet us in a relay race, we
to run the relay and he the race. A
spectacular race. Indeed! Here,; al
low . me to say that King has a little
loo much confidence in his ability as
a runner, or else be must look upon
us as being, in plain tspeechlno good
at ws game..; wow, we hope some
day, soon, to give him a surprise, but
for-the present must stand by and
look on. No one knows why. better
than King,? who, being an ex-soldier,
must fully appreciate the' difficulties
cne In that occupation must undergo
to train for the road. His unrestrict
ed : training, under, the guidance of a
man who knows how to train and has
fche liberty to keep him in the proper
food forHhat training, -fives him an
advantage over, us which we fully ap
preciate, but know we can conquer in
time. :;';:-! :c;.-,J;r

at the top of the batting averages.
He is Noda. : the hard-hitting ' first

trips to the plate he has connected
safely just 11 times, giving him the
healthy average of .579.. Not one. ot

The bowlers are in something of a
quandary over the organization of the
' winter league, owing to the . fact
tha the teams shape up somewhat Un
evenly, and there is a chance of its

of them. At least, that was -the bur

The suggestion' was made; that It
would be better, to let the six cap

them pick from the, 42 players who

nearly equal in strength as .possible.

to the 1 unusual and also furnish con
crete refutation of a popular fallacy
which seems to haTe no other foun
dation than tradition.
As often as once a fortnight during
the playing season some other player
or manager from the country or near
by prairies sends in a query-seeking
to know if a team in the field is not
prohibited from using more than
three or four men in the act ot run
ning out an opponent who has been
caught between bases.
Where the idea originated -cannot
be guessed, but doubtless from tra
dition. At least it is from the same
source as the ideas which still per
tain, to the effect that a batsman is
out automatically if he fails, to, run
to first base immediately or that
he can te put out if an opponent gets
ball and crosses first base line ahead
of the runner without touching him
or' the base.

When,-therefore, a spider tpins -a
web to let himself down from the cell

powerful in proportion to their size. ;
