Over a hundred automobiles
were parked around the Lihue
baseball Held last Sunday, the
grandstand was packed and there
was a large overllow along the
side lines. They came with the ex
pectation of witnessing an except
ionally fast, ball game, and they
were not disappointed. In spite
of the fact that Lihue came very
near to shutting McBryde out,
every inning was fought to a
McBryde played with grim de
termination, and played well, but
there cannot be the slightest doubt
by anyone witnessing the game,
that Lihue out-played them at
every turn. But they were good
losers. After the game Captain
Denchi said, "Lihue had an ideal
lineup to day and beat us fair and
square. They had the better team
and we have no kick coming."
Time after time McBryde got
men on third and bases full, but
not until the ninth inning did they
succeed in getting a run. Then
through a series of errors, they
got in three men before there was
an out. Then Perreira tightened
up and shut out the next two men,
while the third went out short to
Perreira, of the Lihue's pitched
his best game of the season, with
eleven strikeouts and only two
passes issued. Ellis played an air
tight and heady game at the re
ceiving end, without an error
chalked against him. Bob Okuda
held down the first sack and play
ed a good game in that important
position. Lovell, the old reliable
at second, played his usual master
ly game, while Akita at third tlid
well for a man who has been out
of the. game since the opening of
the season. Frank Fernandez at
right, Capt. John at center and
Tuxeira at left did not have much
to do, although a couple of lilies
did reach Tureira, which he hand
led nicely. The Lihue boys batted
in great form, losing only one man
by the strike out route.

The new road to Mann has been
in process for some time and
about one mile of the macadami

Resurfacing of the road, Wa
Iiiawa to ICalaheo goes steadily
on. It is now finished about half
way to the ICalaheo school.

will be built is a problem. Carl-enters
are very scarce, much in
demand and mighty independent.
There; is always a grand rush
for school repairs, alterations and
extensions, all to be finished in
time for school to start in the
fall. The time allowed by the va
cation is so short that it simply
can't be done, with the conse
quence that everyone is dissatis
fied and emergency, makeshift
work is apt to be done.
Hawaiian in the Schools
The recent session of Legisla
ture passed a bill providing that
Hawaiian shall be taught in addi
tion to English in all Normal and
High schools in the Territory.
We wonder if this law is to be
taken seriously and if provision
is being made in the Kauai High
school for such instruction. We
wonder farther where they are
going to find competent teachers
for such courses. The San Jose
normal girls will hardly do for
that, and the Honolulu normal
needs to spend all their time on
English, and more.
Kauai Girls to College

ters of L. I'ah On the rice mag

are busily engaged planting a new
stretch of land recently opened up
niauka of thu road at Moloaa. There

pared. They ought to get wonderful
returns from the same.

homesteaders, who have been trying to J
homestead Kapua while- living in town, I
, came flocking down this week to make
