the large crowd of spectators, The
games were scheduled to begin at

many people had to leave during
the second game, and they missed
a game well worth seeing. It is

The first game called was be
tween High School and Eleele.
The visitors played a strong de
fensive game and kicked out of
many hard places. Their offensive
was not strong and only once did
they seriously tin eaten their
opponents' goal. The local team
showed flashes of good soccer, and
carried the ball well into the
enemy's territorv, but they were
weak in following the ball and
placing their kicks when near the
goal The game ended with one
goal scored by the locals.
Lihue and Koloa then took the
field. Lihue started off by rush
ing the ball down the field and
putting Koloa on the defensive.
The Koloa boys defended well and
there was lots of excitement among
the rooters when Koloa finally got
the ball out of her penaltv area
and took the offensive. The Lihue
boys had hard, work to keep the.
attackers from scoring-several
kicks just missed the goal posts by
Lihue succeeded in scoring near
the end of the second half and that
ended the scoring.

matched this year on account of
the light team entered by the High

much superior to that of last year.

THE FATAL SPREE
OF A PORTO R
Last Wednesday afternoon a Ha
waiian named Aocla, while walk
ing along near the Kealia stream,
at Kapahi, discovered a badly de
composed body floating in the wa
ter. The police were notified and
the remains taken in charge. A
coroner's jurv was empanelled and
tried for three days to establish
the identity of the corpse without
avail. It was finally proved quite
conclusively, however, that the re
mains were those of Mateo, a Por
Following up the case it was
found that Mateo had been paid
some money for labor and straight

He had quite evidently tried to
cross the stream above Kapahi and,

Just what day all that happened,
however, it was impossible to de
termine. It seems likely, from the
appearance of the corpse, that it
was at least a week ago.
