That Sunday afternoon's game win
be a hummer all seem to agree. Be
cause of its past performances on the
Honolulu diamonds, the SL Louis
nine is naturally the favorite but,
then they have never been up against
the local boys.
The St. Louis boys ana their many
friends, including probably every fan
nette in the city, are confident of vic
tory. The truth will only be known
for thu twenty-seventh man of the
t hot to oallpri nut tirovltt-
ed the game does not go extra frames.
And Alvin and Foster are going iu
be in the game Sunday. Not in the
pitcher's box where both used to shine,
but calling them safe and out about
the bases, etc. Alvin and Foster were
around yesterday afternoon looking
for an accident insurance agent.
Whether they got him or not and
whether they took out each a policy

A. A. Reis, who is In charge or me

brothers on the subject of their um

Foster were willing. This, in itself,
will be good news to the fans.
Interest in Sunday's game is at a
high pitch and a record crowd is ex
pected. The Mauis nave not oeeu
asleep the past week. Not a day has
gone by without the local boys doing
some real practice work on the dia
mond and each day has witnessed
marked improvement in the team.
Team work has been developed to
the extent that it is confidently ex
pected that when the All-Mauis get
into the game Sunday the team will
look a hundred percent better than ft
did during the past week in their
