Win Three Games Out Of Four
First Game A Joke Maui Boys
Make Good In Balance
CROWDS NOT UP TO EXPECTATION
In the baseball series with the Hilo
Japanese team, which was finished
on. Tuesday of this week, the Maul
teams demonstrated their ability as
players and made a showing, of which
Maui may well be proud.
The first game which was played
last Saturday afternoon between the
Hilo J. A. C.s and the Maui II. A. C.s,
was somewhat of a joke ,and ended
with a score of 21 to 12 in favor of
the visitors. There was no doubt but
that the Hiloites were somewhat up
set by the trip from Hilo. The local
team for some reason or other failed
to play to form and allowed the visit
ors to scamper around the bases till
they were practically worn out. The
balance of the games, however, were
a different story and the local boys
made good, and Maui saw some base
ball that was really worth while.
From a financial standpoint the ser
ies was very disappointing to the pro
moters, who were left to make up a
deficit of a considerable amount, in
order to meet the expense of bring
ing Hilo team to Wailuku. On no oc
casion were the crowds up to expecta
tions, which was no doubt due, in part
at least, to the poor showing made In
the initial game. The scores for the
different games were as follows:
Saturday, August 25th

MAUI TO DO
Meeting At Puuncne Well Attended
Expect To Sail With Last
SEVERAL QUESTIONS TO SETTLE
Recruits May Be Given Preliminary
Medical Examination On Maui
A meeting of the British Recruiting
Commission for the island of Maui
was held at Puunene last Wednesday
evening, when Mr. II. D. Sloggett and
Mr. James B. Mackenzie, the local
representatives talked over matters
with the Maui volunteers. As the
meeting was the first of its kind and
only a preliminary one, nothing de
finite was arrived at, although the
last draft sailing about the middle of
November seemed to be favored.
As the written matter from Hono
lulu seemed rather vague on certain
points, a number of questions arose
which were noted by Mr. Sloggett
who will take them up personally in
the near future with the recruiting
officer for the Territory. If these are
satisfactorily answered it is certain
that recruiting will proceed and there
will be eligible men to come forward.
It was intimated that Dr. Rothrock of
Paia would be in readiness to put the
recruits through the necessary pre
liminary examination, although it was
pouted out, that a second would prob
ably be necessary in Honolulu, by the
medical authorities in, charge there,
before the recruit would finally be ac
cepted. Those present were H. D. Sloggett,
J. B. Mackenzie, D. C. Rattray, F. Co
well, J. B. Thomson, J. H. Pratt, F.
Peacock, James Hood, George Crook,
Patrick Robertson, Dr. Fitzgerald,
Alex McNicoll, Ben Williams. William
Phillips and A. McLaren who were un
able to be present, sent word that
they were to be counted on.
Mrs. II. B. Penhallow of Wailuku,
entertained about twenty-five ladies
at a pleasant bridge party last Wed
nesday afternon. Card tables were ar
ranged on the spacious lawn under
the beautiful shade trees, and delici
ous refreshments sped the hours only
too quickly. The affair was in honor
of Miss Gwen von Tempsky, the sec
ond daughter of Louis von Tempsky,
and was given to announce her en
gage ment" to Mr. Barton J. Bridge
ford of Wailuku. The young lady,
who is charming and popular was
showered with felicitations. Mr.
Dridgeford who arrived here from the
Northwest about nine months ago, is
manager of the Insurance Department
of the Bank of Maul, at Wailuku.
FAREWELL PARTY TO
POPULAR PAIA BOY
Master Robert Murdoch was the
guest of honor at a beach party Thurs
day night to which his many young
friends of central Paia were bidden

coll who arranged the affair. About
thirty-five guests gathered to enjoy a
delicious spread at the old lime-kilt),

to the Paia Community House where
dancing had been arranged for as a
surprise to end a very pleasant even
ing. Robert Murdoch leaves on Satur

the Boston School of Technology.

Maui Team Is Unable To Wrest Game
From Fast Oahu Players
Was Uphill Game
GAME WAS WON BY SPEEDY MOUNTS
Large Crowd Witness Second Game
Of Series Maui Was The Favorite
In Most Exciting Game Of Season
The Maui" polo team met defeat at
the hands of the Oahu players in the
second game of the 1917 Island polo
championship, which was played off
on last Saturday afternoon and ended
in a score of 13 to 7V4. The game
from the very start seemed to be in
favor of Oahu and it was only in the
final period that Maul seemed to have
the advantage. It was impossible
that late in the game to make up the
lead that the home team had secured
in the earlier periods. From start to
finish It was a game of speed and
brought out some of the finest horse
manship ever seen on the islands.
The game was marked by no excep
tional star playing but seemed to de
pend entirely on who had the fastest
horses and with this last in favor of
the Oahus it was an uphill game, for
Maui, from start to finish.
The field was in exceptionally good
shape and a crowd which practically
tilled all parking space, the grand
stand and the bleachers, cheered to
the limit. If cheering would win a
game it would have gone to Maui, as
the latter was no doubt the favorite
with the crowds. The Hawaiian band
played between the periods. The
lineups were as follows Oahu: Wal
ter MacFarlane 1, Harold Castle 2,
Walter Dillingham 3, Arthur Rice 4,
Maui: Harold Rice 1, Sam Baldwin 2,
Frank Baldwin 3, Dave Fleming 4.
A Friend Of Maui
One of the principal speakers at
the recent Chamber of Commerce
Get-Together Dinner at the Maul
Hotel, was Mr. Emil Berndt of Hono
lulu, who had much to say regarding
the rare beauty of Maui secenery. The

"After having spent three weeks on
Maui, Emil A. Berndt, chairman of

considerable amount of boosting for
the civic convention and traveled ex
tensively through the Valley Isle.
Maui will be well represented at
the civic convention, Mr. Berndt be
lieves. He says fifty or sixty delegates
may be expected and that those who
bring their wives and families will
thus double the number of. visitors
from that island.
During his travels through the is
land Mr. Berndt visited the cement
works on the Maul Agricultural Com
pany property near Paia The plant
has been completed and Is expected to
soon be in operation. It is to have
