Much interest centers in the Junior
games at this part of the series, as it
is seen by the games of last Sunday
In a ten-inning game and a 2 to 1
The ten-inning game was played in
the morning at 10:30 o'clock by the
Haikus and Cubs, and the former de
feated their opponents by the score
of 7 to 6. Excellent plays and much
excitement were features of this
The Haikus used two pitchers while
the Cubs depended upon Keehu alone
to deliver the goods. In the ninth inn
ing the score was 6 to 6, and a home
run in the 10th by Paoa won the game
for the pine pickers.
The other game was played by the
Waikapus and Chinese. This was the
fastest game that was ever played by
the league. The Waikapus scored
their first run in the 7th, when Scholtz
pulled oft' a hit to right, sending Free
man in, and the second run came in
on the ninth by a hit again made by
The Chinese failed to send a man
over the plate during the game but
they nearly succeeded when one man
was caught at the plate by a throw
from left field. The Chinese made
more hits than the Waikapus, and had
thefe hits been timely, the victory
would have been theirs. The game
ended 2 to 0 in favor of the Waikapus.

Peanuts mane good crops In many sec
tions of the islands. Write to the Ha
waii experiment station for the Vulle
tin on peanuts and plant a small area.

sumption and green for shipping, have
been scarce. The only green fruit
shipped by the division during the
past two weeks was grown and pack
ed by the Haiku Farmers' Association
Onions a Glut.
Island onions are plentiful and
cheap, with little prospect of the price
advancing. Due to lack of sufficient
rainfall, a great many of the onions
are undersized. During May the army
will use the local onions. This will
help local producers to disposei of
To cut down the cost of keeping a

some extent in Hawaii as a wind

stages of growth, green and ripe. The
leaves and young growth makes good
cattle feed. The twigs are used for
