NEW YEAR'S EVE
Joy reigned supremo at thb big LI
lino Armory on New Year's Eve. De
spite the fact that n 'number of folks
from the Lihuo side attended the
mask ball at Makaweli. there was
a good big attondenco in the early
part' of tho evening, which steadily
grew as tho hours went by.
The armory was very tastefully
decorated with palin leaves and other
greenery appropriate for tho occas
ion. The music was furnished by the
Lihuo Hand orchestra. This was tho
first regular engagement of this or
chestra and proved a very pleasant
surprise to the dancers.
Just before midnight,- nfter refresh
ments had been served, the noise
making contrivances were passed
around, as were quantities of confetti
and paper streamers. Then, on tho
stroko of midnight, bedlam broke
loose and everybody became joyous
maniacs for the time being. With
horns and rattles going like mad, and
tho air full of confetti and ribbons,
even the most staid business men and
matronly women forgot their dignity
and became happy roisterers with only
one object in life to make as much
noise as was. humanly possible.
It was a fitting passing of tho old
at the Mokihana
?On Friday afternoon, January 2nd,
tho regular, monthly meeting of the
Mokihana Club' was held at the Lihuo
Hall. After a brief business meeting,
t the club listened to a series of most
interesting accounts of their experi
ences' in'Franco, by three members of
the Mokihana club. First, Miss Mabel
: Wilcox told of her experiences as a
trained nurse with the Red Cross,
caring for the French and Belgian
refugees, first at Havre, and later, In
Belgium, where she was stationed a
few miles behind the front.
Miss Wilcox, beside describing her
A regular work, told many amusing and
pathetic incidents, and also described
y several air raids. She had the good
fortune to be In Paris, on November
11, 191S, and gave a very graphic do-
5 scription of the celebration of tho
V armistice there. .
Next, Miss Cheek, the new district
1 nurse, gave an extremely interesting
account of her experiences as a train
ed nurso at an American base hos
pital in central France. She, first told
of her regular routine, both with
wounded men, and later with "flu"
patients. Sho then described the more
social side of the work, giving an
amusing account of how the men were
entertained, and their cffoits to enter
. Last on the program, Miss Nell
Findloy, formerly a teacher in Lihuo,
f and now a Y W. C. A. secretary in
J Honolulu, told of her experiences
'Xwith tho Y. M. C. A. in France. Miss
Bindley is very eloquent, and be
dsides being able to express herself
in simplo and trenchant terms, has
a fine sense of humor, and tho rare
gift of making her hearers -feel with
j ner. one spunu ui uui -"'j
after tho signing of tho armistice, in
Verdun and other French towns where
Americans wero stationed. Sho also
gavo a touching account of tho celo
, bration of Decoration Day in tho
American military cemetery in Franco.
All three talks merged into one
V another beautifully, and brought an
r inspiring message to all who heard
Later in tho afternoon, tea was
served by tho hostesses, Mrs. Ralph'
Wilcox, Mrs. Hogg, Mrs. Stewart, and
Miss Mclntyre. Tho decorations of
palms and ferns, combined with red
and white flowers wero very effective.

Tentative Plans for
Puu Ka Pele Park
J. H. Moragne, Interviewed recent
ly in regard to tho Puu Ka 1'elo Park,
its present stntus and tho probable
prospects of getting it into some, kind
of preliminary shapo for this summer,
said in substance as follows:
"Tho first, essential of any develop
ment of any kind up there is wnter.
1 mado inquiries on the Coast in re
gard to pipe tor the purpose of con
voying water from tho Kokeo region
to tho proposed camp sita near Puu
lua. 1 found that a very suitable pipe
could bo secured at about one-third
tho cost of nowgalvanized iron pipe.
I would recommend the uso of that.
Sonic 13,000 feet of it would bo need
ed and It would cost, laid and connect
ed up, with necessary tanlcs, etc., prob
ably about $,000.
"When wo have once got water on
tho place wo can begin to talk busi
ndss. No body wants to put In any
money there, In tho way of improve
ments, until there Is water. But with
water wo .can go to tho plantations,
and others with means, with a pretty
confident assurance of being able to
"In my opinion the County should
como through with the $5,000 to put
tho water In, and having done that 1
believe tho rest will como along all
right. It Is tho plan, -I understand, to
bring the matter up at the coming
meeting t of, tho Supervisors, and I
hope they will consider It favorably.
"In regard to the road and the
$30,000 available, I would bo in favor
of using the most of it perhaps in
constructing a good working grade
the whole way up, and depend on get
ting down to a good hard pan bottom,
which in, itself, will make a practic
able road for any but the worst weath
er In winter.
"It would bo folly to waste macad
am on tho grades there are now. You
couldn't hold It there. Proper grades
are .tho very first .pro-requisite of n
good road whatever follows.
"1 regard tho development of Puu
Ka Pole Park and tho Inauguration of
suitable facilities there as one of tho
most important interests now before
our local public."
New Years Races at Waipouli
Tho races at Waipouli on New Years
day wero a great success. There was
one of tho largest crowds in attend
ance that the track has yet had, and,
owing to the grandstand accommodat
ions, everybody had a chance to en
joy tho sport. It is to bo hoped that
tho grandntands will bo permanent.
NEW YEAR'S BY THE SEA
Following tho happy precedent,
which they have themselves establish
ed in byegone years, the Broadbonts
gathered up their friends along tho
Grove Farm row for a picnic outing
Now Year's Day, at Waipouli. As
children and young people formed tho
predominant element, they set tho pace
and gavo the character to tho "day.
This meant baseball of course, and
there wero fast and furious games in
which little Tommy Hustace out-played
his dad, and Poacher Lydgato out-pitch,
ed his biggest brother.
Following such strenuous exercise
the picnic lunch was specially wel
come and specially delicious.
Following tho lunch tho baseball en
thusiasts drifted away to tho big game
and tho races at tho raco course, while
tho ladies, and others of moro con
templative or moro gossipy mood,
rested In the shade under tho trees
and roviewed various matters of local
interest from tho last movie to tho
next engagement. It was an exceed
ingly pleasant day; one to bo looked
forward to next year.
NEW YEAR'S DANCE
FOR THE YOUNG FOLKS
Tho young folks danco given by Mr.
and Mrs. Moler at tho Social Hall,
Friday evening, was ono of tho .most
enjoyable affairs of tho holiday seas
on. As is often tho case, It benefited
in interest and enjoyment through tho
moro limited numbers; tho dancing
honors and attentions wero moro even
ly distributed. It was so much of a
success, and everybody was having
such a good time, that they wero very
loath to break up, oven at a lato hour,
and in spito of the fact that there was
to-morrow ahead of them, witlr its
duties and responsibilities.
Asahi's Lose Two
' - And Win Two
The Undefeated Japanese Team
Meets Waterloo at Hands of
Before one of the greatest crowds
that ever witnessed a baseball con
test on Kauai, tho Asahls of Honolulu
defeated the All-Kauals at Waipouli
on New Year's day by tho score of
sjx to four.
Tho weather was Ideal, as light
clouds prevented old sol from coining
out in all his glory, and cool ocean
breezes helped to keep everybody in
Although the game was not as, per
fect nii examplo of tho national pas
time as could bo desired, as a glance
at tho box score will Indicate, there
wore many exciting moments.
F. Fernandez, left fleidcr of tho All
Kauals, was hurt In attempting to
steal second In tho first inning and
was replaced by Watase. Pitcher Mit
suo was relieved in tho 8th by Kruse.
Tho Asahis -went through tho contest
without any chnngo in the lineup.
The feature of the gamu was -the
good playing of Captain Zonemura
of the Asahis at short and tho accurate
throwing of Kurasaki, -wiio threw out
every Kauai player who attempted to
steal on him. Kurano of the visjtors
landed on ono of Mitus's inshoots in
the second inning and drove tho ball
over the center fielder's head for a
homo run. Tho hit should have been
only good for a thrcc-bnggcr though,
as the lineup of automobiles in the
outfield prevented the fielders from re
trieving the, ball In time to prevent
"For'the winner, Nitsliida pitched
well and his feat of getting credit for
eleven assists is probably a record.
Ho only struck out three men, but tho
way he made tho batsmen roll easy
grounders to him was certainly .sur
prising. Mitsu pitched as well as
could be desired until tho seventh, as
two runs scored off him wore the re
sult of errors. Kruse allowed two
runs in the two innings ho pitched,
but the way the sons of Nippon
whaled his offerings for long flies to
tho outfield did not 'impress the big
Two errors by tho Asahis in tho
eighth helped to rovivo. tho hope of
tho locals with tho score six to ono
against thorn. The rally fell short
though, as only three runs wore scor
ed. Bettor team work by tho visitors
helped to win tho laurels of tho day,
and lack of tho same probably cost
the Kauai 'men the game. Five times
in as many innlnps tho first man up
singled, but tho sacrifico hit was only
attempted once and that attempt re
sulted in a run. The second batsmen
in tho other innings wero nllwcd to
hit as they pleased, with the result
that the runner was . forced out at
second or died in an attempt to steal.
ALL-KAUAI JAPANESE VS. ASAHI
Japan met Japan nt the Lihuo Park
on Saturday and Japan won. In other
words, the Asahis of Honolulu, ,,who
wero advertised as tho best Japanese
aggregation of ball toners In Hawaii,
having visited and conquered their
kinsmen on tho islands of Maul and
Hawaii, wore- decisively defeated by
a team composed entirely of Japaneso
boys picked from various teams in
tho Kauai league. Tho score of six
to four does not, really tell tho story
of tho game, as the visitors were out
batted, outfloldcd and generally out
played in all departments of tho game.
Only four hits wero registered against
the local pitcher, while twice as many
wore secured off tho Asahi's pitcher.
Tho losers also mado more errors
than tho locals.
N.' Ohama, for tho locals, pitched a
very steady game, allowing only four
hits and walking two, although In
struck out but one. His ability to pro
vent lilts with men on bases was ono
reason tho visitors lost. In the eighth,
with runnors on third and second, ono
down and Kurano. who had knocked
a homo run against tho All-Kauais on
Now Year's day, up, ho forced the
batsman to roll an easy grounder to
tho inllold which caused no damage.
A hit at this stago would have tied
up tho score.
For tho visitors, Nakamura. tho lad
from tho Second City, pitched pretty
steady ball also, as his record of six
strlko-outs and no baso-on balls will
indicate, but his Inability to provont
baso-hlts at critical moments caus
ed his downfall.
Tho visitors had a splendid oppor
tunity to break up tho game by get
ting a big lead In the first inning.
Zlshimura oponed with n single, was
sacrificed to second by Sasaki and
scored on Okino's smash to center
field. Kurasaki was then given a free
ticket, and with only ono down and
Kurano up, It looked like curtains for
thJ local boys, but shortstop Tounehlro
made a lino pickup of Kurano's swift
grounder, touched second forcing Kura-i
saki and then throwing to first com
pleting a fast double-play. The visit
ors secured another run in the fifth
with the aid of a single, a bad throw
and a bunt. Their other two runs In
tho eighth were scored with the aid
of two co3tly errors. . Nakamura was
safe on shortstop 'Tsunohhi's error;
Zoiilmura hit to left and King muffed
the" ball, Nakamura scoring. JConi
mura advanced to third on a passed
ball and scored on Okino's jingle to
left after Nuchlda had grounded out.
Tho winners scored a itm in the
initial frame as a result of three sing
le;; and secured another in tho seven-
th when pitcher Nakamura throw to
I second to catch Nobuchi dealing.
The fireworks started in tho eighth.
1 Akita was safo on third's and Okuda
, boat out an infield hit. Nobuchi sing
led scoring Akita. Tsunehiro tried
j to work' the squeeze play by bunting
I but the Asahi's pitcher got excited
and mado a target of Tsuuehiro's back
1 instead of tho first baseman's mit
with tho result that two moro runs
. canio in, enough to win tho game.
! The runner advanced to third on a
passed ball and scored on King's out,
i.hort to first. Mitsu ami uol ended
i the inning by rolling eay grounders
.to short who threw them out with case.
Tin' ninth Inning was nr,-a formal
ity, neither c'dc being able to start
P. A. C. VS. ASAHIS
In the longest game played in tho
I series between the Asahis and local
, teams, tho P. A. C's were defeated at
Waipouli He'd on Sunday incruiiig in
twelve inninso by tho score of 2-1.
I Nushida for the winners was a bit
steadier than his opponent, striking
out seven and walking none, while
I Robollo of tho losers also .-.truck out
seven but walked three. Six errors
i wero chalked up against tho P. A. C's
, whilo oiily two wero charged to tho
. visitors. Incidentally, th.i winning

be handled by Sasaki. Tho ball went
on to centcrflold and A. Perrolra
scored. Gabrfi.1 ended the Inning
when ho tried to score on Andrado's
bunt, Kurasaki making the putout.
With tho aid of an error by A. Per
reira, tho winning team tied the score
in tho 8th. Kozuki, first man up, was
safe on an cror at first. Nu3h!da sac
rfficed him to second and Zenlmura
filed out to catcher. Sasaki smashod
a long einglo to loft and Kozuki scor
ed. Yamaguchi smashed out another
single but Sasaki was caugnt at tne
plato on a close play. Tho winning
run came In tho last half of tho 12th
inning with two down. Matsuno
started thb inning for the Asahis by
KroundiiiK out second to first. Nakn

Kozuki was given a free pass. Nu

have meant at least another inning

LIHUES VS. ASAHIS
lleforo another great crowd at Wai
pouli on Sunday afternoon, tho Lihuo
team, 1010 champions of Kauai, de
feated tho Asahis in tho last and
most exciting game of tho series by
the close score of two to one.
Although the box scoro will show
that they wero seemingly outplayed,
tho Lihuos. by taking advantage of
every opportunity offered them, man
aged to noso out their opponents.
The visitors outhit thoir opponents,

hits when they counted. In the fourth

of Benito, a Guam Spaniard, who
wandered away from the family homo
