Yorv fortunate were the favored
friends of Mr. and Mrs. A. S. Wil
cox, who wer-e entertained at a poi
supper at their Kilohana home on
Fridav evening, in honor of Mr. and
Mrs. Alien C. Wilcox, recently
married. It was more than usually,
a notable event. The skill of Mrs.
Wilcox in the matter of poi suppers
and lunches, is well established;
needless to sav the viands were up
to the level of her top-notch ideal
both in quality and cuisine.
There were soiiie !5S or -10 quests
ranged at a long table running the
full length of the great dining room,
all eager for the event, and when
the first pangs of hunger were allay
ed somewhat they assumed the pro
portions of a genially hilarious
Mr. A. S. Wilcox set the pace
for the toasts with one of his char
acteristic, original, dry-luunor
speeches, in which he explained
just why they were all there, and
how such an unexpected thing ever
came about. Timely toasts follow
ed rapidlv, from Mr. Stewart, Mr.
C. A. Hice, Mr. W. IT. Mice, Jr.,
and others. In response to a special
call from the host, Mr. Lydgato
rounded up the finish with some
facetious badinage that didn't seem
to hurt anybody's feelings.
Most of the guests remained till
a late hour playing bridge.
Those present at the above poi
supper were: Mr. and Mrs. A. S.
Wilcox, Mr. and Mrs. Allen C.

Kauai Grammar Defeats Elcelc
The crucial contest of the series
was that played between Eleelc
and the Kauai Grammar school at
the High school grounds at Lihue
on Saturday afternoon,
A win meant victory for the
seriestfor Grammar school, while
.a draw would have left the team
tied with Koloa for first place. Had
the game been lost the cup would
have gone to Koloa.
With this incentive the Gram
mar school went into the game to
win and they played with all the
energy and snap that thev could
commend. Eleele was also right
o n edge and played a brilliant
game throughout. .
Eleele won the toss and chose to
kick with the wind. The game
waged hotlv from one end of the
field to the other, and the most
spectacular kicking was shown.
Eleelc has some powerful boost
ers and. they drove the ball again
and again down the field. Sam
Kneo, the Gramma school fullback
showed that he is the strongest
kicker in the league bv returning
the kicks to his forwards some 60
or 70 yards at a time,
In the first half Grammar scored
one goal but fouled on the plav
and it was not allowed. The half
showed the score 0-0.
The second period of play start
ed with Grammar determined to
score and they carried the ball
through the field to a score by bril
liant team work and accurate pass
ing. Mauzi Ouye, the Grammar
captain, put the ball through with
a fine drive taken at full speed.
Ouve has beeii the most consis
tent scorer in the league and has
nlayed the positioned center for
ward brilliantly, as well as managed
his team with judgment and skill.
There was no fuither scoring
during the game although Gram
mai tried a penalty kick.
Eleele is going at top speed now
and the last three weeks lias been
making a fine showing. They
should have a hiuher place in the
league standing Tanaka, the Ele
ele goalkeeper, is one of the best
plavers in the league, while Eddie

star plavers and kick the hall splen

Dim Your Lights

automobile owners in the matter of
the dimming of head lights. The

in this matter on his side of the

similar activity here.
