Hugh Mcintosh firmly believed
that Bill Lang of Australia was ties
tined to become the champion
the world. There is no doubt of
this, for prior to Lang's contest in
London with Sam Langford, Mc
intosh did not hesitate to placo
himself on record as to how he felt
regarding Lang. It was thought
after the way the bout ended that
Mcintosh would admit he had over
rated Lang. On the contrary, Mc
intosh is busy explaining away
Lang's "fatal error'' in fouling his
opponent. A letter from Mcintosh
is full of apologies for Lang. He
says that tlio aftermath of the big
contest bristles with discussions as
to what might have been "had not
Lang, in a moment of impulse,
brought about his own disqualifica-
tion." According to Mac, the Aus
tralian heavyweight received a trem
endous ovation when ho entered the
ring. "This," says Mcintosh, "ap
peared to unnerve him. It.influ-
fenced his movements during the
?'f early part of the contest. On the
'r other hand, Langford, cool, smiling
away under the instruction of his
'experienced adviser." It seems that

right at Langford, and, according
to Mcintosh, had the better of the
exchanges. "When weighing the
decision against Lang," writes Mc
intosh, "it should be borne in
mind that when he lost the fight he
was on' his feet and Langford on
the floor.' Most of the papers attri
bute Langford's fall to a slip, but
the photographs vividly demonstrate
that it was the result of a clean,
knockdown blow. It is the opinion
of some of the best judges men
who arc eminently impartial that
Lang had a really good winning
chance if "he had not impulsively
fouled his opponent. Lang was
just about realizing that Langford
liad done his best. Bill remarked
afterwards that Lawzford's blows
were getting lighter, sure pr6of that
Langford was tiring, whilst Lang
was settling down to fight in his
old stvlo. Tho foul was a most
unfortunate occurrence, but the ref

Honolulu, March 21, 1911.
Tho College of Hawaii put another
athlete on the pedestal at the track

win a hammer throw or something
else, but not much. In fact Kamc-
hamcha was to have everything that
was worth whilo and Oahu was to
get most of what was left, according
to the dope sheets. Rice was fit.
Ho had won fivd events and to the
surprise of his admirers entered for
tho 880 yards dash and won. All of
the winnings by Rice go to tho credit
of Hawaii College which scored forty-
two points. Oahu thirty eight and
Kamehameha twenty four. Con

Aloha Lodge Pays Off Indebtedness
and Plans Celebration.
Aloha Lodge, K. of P., has ac
complished a feat which any order
should reasonably be proud of. A
little less than nino years ago, tho
members of this lodge determined
to build a castle hall. Tho under
taking was a big one, especially so
as ,tho lodge at that timo could not
boast pearly so largo a membership
as it docs at tho present timo. Tho
result of their determination and
peVservcranco is seen in tho present
K. of P. Hall in Wailuku. For
years the struggle was a bitter one
to pay the interqst on tho debt, and
in addition' pay off part of the in
debtedness each year. Gradually
the load began to lighten; now
members joined the order, until to
day the Lodge is in a flourishing
condition, and two weeks ago tho
.ast dollar of indebtedness was lifted
from the building.
In celebration of this happy event
tho Lodge is planning to give a ban
quet and dance, such as they wero
famed for in years past. Tho date 1
set for this affair is Saturday even
ing, April 15th, and there is no
question but that it will at least
equal any entertainment of tho kind
ever given in Wailuku.
Celebration at Puunene.
Last Saturday evening the mem
bers of the Puunene Athletic Club
entertained their friends at tho
club rooms. As usual, this was
made the occasion for a jolly good
timo. Dancing was enjoyed until
eleven o'clock, when tho guests wero
invited to the dining room of the
club, whero they sat down to a
feast of good things. Tho speeches
which followed tho banquet wero
both instructive and entertaining.
They wero instructive in that it
sluwed what a large number of peo
ple there aro on Maui who cannot
make a speech, and entertaining in
their brevity. Taking into consider
ation that this was tho anniversary
of Ireland's patron saint, it is
reniarkablo. Altogether everyone
had an enjoyable timo, and tho
