TO BOOST SPORTS
Will Take Over Baseball And
Perhaps Other Athletic
Practically all of the officers of
the Fourth Regiment (Kauai), Na
tional Guard of Hawaii, met in the
district court room at the county
building last Friday evening and
discussed a large number of mat
ters of importance to the regiment,
some of which were given out for
publication, as being of interest to
the public generally.
For instance, in the matter of
sports it was decided that the
National Guard should take over
the baseball situation. The ques
tion of whether the competing
teams should be organized by bat
talions or companies was discussed
at length, finally resulting in favor
of the latter plan, although that
will mean that twelve teams will
be in the field during the coining
Soccer football will also be tak

putting in one team for a hot sea

May. These sports programs will

brought out. In his annual report
the manager also made the follow
ing interesting statements:
"I am glad to report a baunei
yield of 9,501.77 tons sugar this
year, which is larger by 600 tons
than any other output in the his
tory of the place.
"The weather has been verv un

growth of the young cane was

time. After the rainy season had

unfortunately had no time to rip

started on December 6. We have

taken off so far have fallen below
the estimate and. unless the quali
ty of the juice improves, we will
get a little less than S000 tons
"The Mill has done very satis
factory work during the past sea

"The new Lihue ditch was com

be of immense value for thi-s plan

are planned for the coming year."
