McBryde and Kilauea
Win Their Games
For the second time this season, Ki
lauea has taken Lihuc into camp
This time the game was at Kilauea,
and at the end o the ninth inning the
score stood 7 to 5 in favor ol the
Kilauea deserves all the credit in
the world because they played a great
game of ball, both in fielding and in
This cannot be said for Llhue. In
the first place Capt. John Fernandez
pulled a boner when ho busted his
regular lineup. Lihue has only one
pitcher and his name is Okuda. To
put any other man In the box is sim
ply throwing away the game.
Tho Kilauea boys are sluggers, and
the way thoy hammered poor Perreira
in the fourth inning was sinful.
After the Kacs had scored five men
(with tho ablo assistance of Llhue's
shortstop and second baseman,) Per
reira was yanked and Okuda was put
in tho box to try and save tho day.
But it was another case of locking
the door after the horso was gone.
Although the Kacs got only one hit
and one run Okuda, the Lacs simply
could not figure out tho combination
to Kinjis delivery and failed to come
across with enough runs to bridge the
Klnjl Is Hero of Game
Lihue started tho game by scoring
three runs in the first and one in tho
third innings, and it looked as though
Kinjl would have to be yanked. But
he sotllcd down after that and the
Lacs simply could not conneot off
him for hits.
9 At last the eighth inning arrives,
and the hopes of the Lihue supporters
began to revive, because this was the
"lucky eighth" and something was
sure to happen. It surely did. Lihue
got the bases full with nobody out.
Then it happened Kinji struck out
the next three batters, one, two, three
Just like that. It certainly was a
grand piece of work and goodness,
how the home fans (and the Makees)
Lihue got in one more run in the
ninth, but that was all there was to it.
They were beaten fair and square.

THE FARM LOAN BOARD
W. C. Avery, secretary of the Farm
Loan Board, came over Friday and re
turns this evening. During this time
he has made a pretty thorough round
of the homestead Interests of the Is
land and reports, with satisfaction, a
groat deal of activity and much sub
stantial development. The homesteads
all have a very prosperous appearance
and a very promising outlook.
There are some 45 loans out to
Kauai homesteaders, aggregatlng$70,
000. The limit, under tho Farm Loan
Act, is $3,000, which tho secretary
declares is not nearly enough. That
amount will not finance any ordinary
crop for an average sized hamestead,
yet it ties up the security so that it
cannot be used as collateral for out
side loans. The limit should be at
Tho loans are not in tho form of
cash turned over to the homesteader
to uso as he wishes, perhaps very un
wisely, but his bills, for approved ex
penditures, are paid on his account.
One of the most valuable benefits
of the Farm Loan enterprise, is the
very helpful advice and guidance
which the inexperienced homesteader
receives at the hands of the Loan
OPENS NEW CLUB HOUSE

house, located at Camp, 2 was opened
last Tuesday evening with a big pro
gram of vaudevillo acts and movies.

all laughing. Following the program
Mr. Damkroger explained tho regulat

interpreted by Rev. Kamido and Mr.
Campos into Japanese and the Illocano

There was a meeting of the Kapaa
and Wailua homesteaders on Sunday
afternoon at the Kapaa court house
which was well attended and deve
loped a good deal of interest as well
as some considerable ginger. Sun
dry complaints and more or less cri
ticism of tho Makee Sugar Company
were voiced, but it was mostly of that
desultory and illogical kind which
gets no whore and hurts nobody. Per
haps it cleared tho atmosphere how
ever. OPEN AIR MOVIES AT MAKAWELI

nrd, who is on the mainland:
"Decorated with the Cross of Saint
Anna, the highest award over be
stowed on a Red Cross Worker, Miss
Jean Searight, California girl and a
former Palo Alto teacher, and for
twenty months secretary to Colonel
R. B. Tcusler, commander In chief

"During her services in Russia Miss
Searight traveled all over tho coun

cape from the Ural mountains to
Vladivostok, when threatened by the

freight bound for Potrograd. Prac
tically all of those on board aro
minor children, according to Miss
Searight, may of them being chil
dren of the Rusian nobility.
"Tho transportation of the little
children was fraught with danger
during the long journey from the
mountains, to the seaboard, said Miss
Searight. The travelers had to be
transported over snow-covered plains
of bleak Siberia to the vessel that
would carry them home. Miss Sea
right accompanied and supervised tho
care of the children until Valdivos
tok was reached.
"Asked if tho children wore not in
need of supplies or clothing she said:
Tots Sick and Hungry
"There aro all right now, but if I
could only tell you what we needed
the day we started out after tho
place in the mountains was made un
safe by roving bands and Bolshevlki.

proper clothing, and hungry. Wo

TWO TEACHERS GET LOST
ON MILOLII TRAIL RESCUED
What might easily have been a
tragic misadventure occured ono day
last week at Kokee. Two lady teach-
'crs, unfamiliar with the country, un
dertook to make the trip to tho Kala
lau pall without a guide. Tho irnt
detailed instructions in regard to the
trail, which they understood was
quite clear and easy to find. Thev
set out about nine in tho morning ex
pecting to bo back early in the after
noon. When nightfall came and there
were no signs of them their friends
became anxious, and finally came to
C. A. Rice and E. A. Knudsen for ad
vice and assistance.
They immediately set forth in search
bf them, and finding no sign of them
at the Kalalau pall, returned and
scrutinized the Milolil trail, which
they found tho ladies had taken by
mistake. Following them in the dark
ness, by tracing their tracks here and
there in the soft places, with the aid
of a lantern, a long way down tho
Milolil trail, they finally found them
huddled up and hopeless, over a little
Thoy were much overcome with
hunger, thirst and exhaustion. Tho
meagre little handful of chocolate and
dates thoy were holding against a long
campaign. Needless to say they wero
hysterically happy to bo rescued.
Their stalwart rescuers, taking each
a lady on his saddle, Sir Galahad-wise,
brought them safely back to camp
about two o'clock, a.m.
It is very fortunate that these two
kamaainas wero available for tho en
terprise no ordinary tenderfoot would
havo been equal to it.

games wero played and tho houso rang

A social gathering of that kind is not
very common in Koloa and it gives
