I enclose herewith stamped and ad
dressed envelope with which kindly
send me a proper decision of the fol
One down and none on. Umpire
calls three strikes on batter, but ball
gets away a few feet from the catcher.
Batter however, did not nttempt to go
to first but walked to the bench. Half
away between the plate and the bench
his captain stopped him with his hands
and told him to go to first which he
did with out any attempt to put him
out although the pitcher had the ball
in his hands. Umpire called "Batter's
out" when the batter started for the
bench, but the captain of the side at
bat claimed that the runner was en
titled to first base regardless of
whether he had gone back to the
bench or not.
LIHUE UNION CHURCH
The first services following the
vacation at the Lihue Union church
were well attended and many new
faces were noticed In the congregation.
The Sunday school attendance was
nearly double that at the end of the
regular school year. More teachers
are needed and the superintendent is
hopeful of the necessary recruits that
may be secured from the public school
force. A young men's Bible class of
mixed nationality is desired and will
be organized as early as possible.
Next Sunday morning Mr. C. C.
Robinson of the International commit
tee of the Y. M. C. A. will deliver the
address at the church service. Mr.
Robinson Is a man of ripe experience
and broad knowledge; he will un
doubtedly be well received by the
people of Kauai.
Y. W. C. A. NOTES
Miss Alice Moore, of the national
Board of the Y. V. C. A. in New York,
has arrived in Honolulu where she
will become head of the girls work de
partment. Later she will visit Kauai.
The Helping Hand Club is being en
tertained this evening at the home of
Mrs. John Midkiff.
The Kauai Public School Athletic
League having been unable this year
to include swimming in its activities
the Girls Reserves will, wherever pos
sible, include swimming lessons on
their program. It seems deplorable
that so many children, born on the
Island grow up without having taken
advantage of their closeness to the
ocean to the extent of learning to
Hanamaulu, Kapaa, and Huleia are
to have Girl Reserve Units in the
immediate future. This will make
the total number of Girl Reserve units
on Kauai fourteen.
