LIHUE, KAUAI, TERRITORY OF HAWAII, TUESDAY, JUNE 8. 1920
SUBSCRIPTION RATES, $2.50 PER YEAR 5 CENTS PER COPY
The 1920 baseball season was
ushered In last Sunday with two re
markably fast games, considering that
they were the first games of the
scries, and if these games are a crl-
tcrion of what is to come, Kauai is
due this season to see the fastest ball
In the history of the game on the Is
land. LIHUE-McBRYDE GAME.
Manuel Perrelra, star mound man
for Lihue, lost his game in the first
inning ,by going into the box without
properly "warming up." The result
was that McBryde landed on him for
Hix clean hits which netted seven
runs before the agony was ended.
It certainly looked as though the
fans were to witness a regular
slaughter of tho innocents. But dur
ing that one nightmare of an inning
Perreiro got the warming up he need
ed, and from then on ho pitched stellar
ball, and with tho able support of his
team mates, allowed the visitors only
one more run during the other eight
Innings. Although he was hammered
unmercifully the first inning, he did
not walk a man during the entire
Kobello, for McBryde, pitched a
fairly good game, but had difficulty In
"getting 'em over" at times, with the
result that four Lihue men got passes.
Gabriel, the McBryde backstop nearly
lost the game for his team by his wild
pegs to second, and it was the merest
luck that Lihue did not tie the score.
Henderson, at the initial sack, is a
tower of strength for McBryde and as
captain of the team, will undoubtedly
jg mako that aggregation a formidable
contender for the pennant. Hender
son is an experienced ball player, and
although he looks out for the Interest
of his team, he is a genuine sport, and
what ever the umps decide goes with
him whether it is for or against.
Manuel Prioste made his Initial bow
as a big leaguer by holding down first
for Lihue. His work proved toibe all
that could be desired. He got 'em,
however they came grabbing 'em out
of the sky or digging 'em out of the
ground it was all the same to Prioste
and he never let one get by.
0 The way Lihue recovered after such
a poor start was joy to the hearts of
the home fans. Although it seemed
impossible to overcome such a handi
cap, they gradually crept up, with one
run in the first, two in the fifth, one
in the seventh and three in the lucky
After the slaughter of the first, in
ning, McBryde did not score again un
til the ninth, when they succeeded in
squeezing a man home, making tho
final score, McBryde 8, Lihue 7.
A. Q. Marcallino was chief umpire,
with J, G. Guyot on bases. Tho um
piring waB high class, with both umps
and teams working in perfect har.
NEXT SUNDAY'S GAMES
Makee vs Lihue at Kapaa.

MAKEES AND KILAUEAS
BATTLE TEN INNINGS
Playing an uphill game with for
tune balking them at every turn dur
ing the early innings, the Makees noaed
out the Kilauea team at Kilauea in a
ten inning game by the score of 7-G,
the winning run being scored with the
aid of a sacrifice fly. A large crowd
was out to cheer for their favorites
and automobiles surrounded the field.
' Barrette started the trouble for the
Makees in the first inning by his in
ability to locato the plate and a run
was scored when catcher Soong failed
to stop one of his low shoots. The
Makees tied the score In the third,
Kilauea being held runless. The fire
works Btarted in the 3rd when W,
Akana first up, singled. It was here
that pitcher Barrette lost control of
tho ball completely and walked tho
next two batters, filling tho bases with
none down. Morita was called in to
stem the tide, but with the big hand!
cap, could not prevent Pacheco from
cleaning the bases with a three bagger
' to left field. Two additional hits in
succession added another run to Ki
lauea's total, and another run was so
cured by them in the fourth, making
it six to one in their faveor, and their
supporters were jubilant.
The Makees gave their supporters a
little hope in the 6th when they se
cured a solitary run. In the "lucky
seventh" they scored twice when

Success of Kauai
The high tide of dramatic enterprise
for Lihue was certainly attained last
Saturday night in the presentation of
"Green Stockings" at the Tip Top the-!
The play is an ambitious one, of
more than usual interest and quality,!
depicting English life and character, I
and turning on tho old English custom j
which requires green stockings for the
old maid daughter, who does not get
married in her proper turn.
The heroine of the play, Celia Fara
day, aged 28, tho wearer of the green
stockings, was Florence Paine, who
played a difficult part remarkably well,
In fact brilliantly. The transforma
tion of the sane, sensible, practical
girl who Is the mainstay of the house
hold, into tho gracious and attractive
society woman of the second half of
the play, was very well done.
The two married daughters, Madge
and Evelyn, home on a visit, were
taken by Madeline Soule and Dorothy!

an easy grace.
Grace Haskell, as Aunt Ida, render
ed a difficult part with such complete
sympathy and understanding, as made
her one of the most interesting char
acters in the play.
Karlo B. Morgan, as the hypotheti
cal hero who suddenly appears on the
scene In real life, played his part with
the insight and ease of an experienced
actor. With singular adroitness ho
overcomes the heroine's objections and
finally wins her In spite of herself.
C. M. V. Forster, as the pompous and
imperious English father, very much
tho master in his own home, was won
derfully well dono. To realize how
fine was his acting ono needs to know
how kindly and courteous he is In real
life, and how much he had to put on.
Admiral Brice, retired, was taken by
H. M. Aldrich, who did tho part very
well, and whose diction was particu
larly clear and forcible.

The School Survey report has
arrived, in part the full text, in
part only in synopsis outline.
The outline summary above will
give a fair idea of the scope anil
nature of the same.
Two or three points may be, em
phasized by way of explanatjbji.
blducuiion for Iloxulta
1. Education is to be shaped
to tit the children to meet the oc
cupational needs and opportuni
ties of the Islands. Presumably
this means to a greater extent
TO KEALIA PLANTATION STORE
Tho Kealia Store has been under
going a campaign of thorough rono
vatlon, extension and improvement,
which has transformed It almost be
yond recognition. The changes have
added very materially to the size of
the building and more still to the at
tractiveness and convenience of"7he
storo. The alterations aild extensions
will enable them to do fuller justice
to the really excellent stock which
they carry, and to serve their patrons
with that promptness and despatch
which Is the aim of every up-to-date
Manager Grote is certainly making
good and deserves the appreciation of
the purchasing public.
One of the improvements which will
bo hailed with joy, is the installation
of a soda fountain' whore real, true-to-
goodness Ice cream will be dispensed.
Mr. Grote believes the public will ap
preciate real ice cream, even if it costs
a trlflo more.

This experiment will bo watched
with a great deal of interest by tho fish
commission, as well as by sportsmen
throughout the territory.
Rev. H. A. Rudin of Honolulu
proached at Lihue Uuion Church last
Sunday morning from tho text "Pure
religion and undented Is this to visit
the fatherless and widows in their
afifflictlon and to keep oneself un
spotted from tho world." Tho sermon
was intensely practical and dealt with
the false and true evidences of a per
sonal christian faith. The congrega
tion was deeply Impressed. Miss Wil
son sang a solo with pleasing effect.
Next Sunday chlldrens day will be
observed both in the Sunday school
and morning church service
made by the
ny report are
than at present. We trust it also
means more discrimination in the
education of children, not all
ground through the same hopper.
Hnlurgcd Powcru of Board
2. Enlarge the board of com
missioners seven instead of six
as at present, three instead of two
for Oahu. Aud, more important,
this board to be the official and
responsible head of the school
system, with authority to appoint
the superintendent and to appoint
