LAST BALL GAMES
Mukcc l.'i, Makawcli 2.
In oiiu of the poorest exhibitions
of ball of the present season, the
Makees defeated Makawcli on Sun
day by the runaway score of 14-2.
Makaweli, with the backbone of
her inlield gone in the persons of
Ah 2s'ce and Burgess, made a vain
attempt to down the leaders of the
league, but it was a hard task and
they finally succumbed to the in
evitable, ller inlield was partic
ularly off color, nearly all perfect
throws and easy grounders being
mussed up. Akita, third baseman
of the losers, quit the game in the
7th after an argument with Fur
tado, but was persuaded to return,
and then was benched by the man
ager for his action.
The Makees then permitted the
home team to break the rule gov
erning the playing of substitutes,
by giving their consent to let
l'acheco, who had been taken out
()f the game in the early innings,
to go in again as third baseman.
Furtado's work on the hill in
this ragged exhibition, however,
stood out as the one redeeming
feature for the losers. His con
trol was well nigh perfect, and his
sharp curves got better during the
latter stages of the game. In the
eight and ninth, he fanned five
Makee batters in succession and
forced Bun Hee to pop to the
shortstop. The hits he allowed at
critical moments, and the costly
boots behind him however, nulli
fied his otherwise good work.
Cummings for the Makec-s work
ed on the mound for seven innings
and let his opponents down with
three singles, two of which were
scratches. He gave way in the
eighth with .the score at 14-2, to
the other pitchers of the team,
who held the home team ripiless
for the last two innings.
The Makees have almost cinched
the 1!)20 penant with Sunday's
victory, and the winner of the
Lihue-McBryde game at Eleele
next Sunday will only be able to
tie the Kapaa boys if the leaders
lose to the Lihues in the play-off
of the famous 1(5 inning tie game
at Kapaa two weeks hence.
Wclirydc (i, Kilauca 2,
McBryde took Kilauea to camp
last Sunday by a score of C to 2.
It was a rather ragged game, with
numerous errors chalked up
against the home team. The Mc
Brydes played like a lot of school
boys and only won their game by
a lucky bunch of hits, assisted by
errors by. Kilauea, in the third in
which the visitors rung up five
The weather was rather squally
,with frequent showers, which was
responsible in a measure, for the
poor class of ball.
Both teams scored in the first
inning, and Kilauea got one in the
second. In the third Kilauea went
up in the air and the visitors
cinched the matter by putting five
men across the rubber. That end
ed the scoring for the day.
The feature of the game was the
excellent work of Byrd at short.
His fielding was remarkable, con
sidering the roughness of the field,
and he caught several men at first
witli what looked like impossible
Wood and Curtis for Kilauea,
and Bobello and Gabriel, for Mo
Brvde, were the batteries. Walter
'Sanborn umped the game.
The. Makaweli soccer team has
elected A. Slebol captain for the com

FINE NEW SCHOOL
I. H. Craig, the well known Ho
nolulu architect, came over from
town last Friday and returned on
Saturday. He was down primar
ily in regard to the proposed new
school building at Kalalieo, but
incidentally to look over some of
the houses built and building on
his plans, and more or less under
his supervision. There are no less
than seven of them, and they set
new standards for local architect
The new Kalaheo school is to
be a ten room building, in addition
to which there will be a library
and teachers' rest room. It will
be built around an open court
with special provisions for venti
lation and lighting, and will be
modern and up to date in every re
spect. It is estimated to cost about

T TO VOTE
According to the Advertiser,
many citizens of the city and
county of Honolulu who believe
they have' been properly registered
as voters and think they will be
eligible to mark their ballots on
primary election day have a rude
awakening coming their way.
David Kalauokalaui, city clerk,
acting on an opinion rendered by
Judge Wiliani H. Hecn, city at
torney, has refused to enroll the
names of many citizens as voters
in the great register. Although
several notaries public signed the
double-aflidavit registration of
these citizens on September 14,
the day on which the great register
closed, the allidavits did not reach
lite city clerk's office until the day
Being in doubt as to just what

BALL A SUCCESS
Did everybody have a good time?
I'll say they did. Ono guest who
thought his dancing days wore over,
said the party had taken fifteen years
off his shoulders. Thoro were many
others who thought the same but did
not have a chance to express them
selves. The American Legion should foil
justly proud of a membership that
could make such a party the bucccss
it most certainly was. And that all
Kauai appreciates such an entertain
ment was evidenced by tho fact that
thore were over threes hundred admiss
ions. The Legion was Instrumental in se
curing somo of the finest dance music
that has yet been heard on this island;
and this in a great mcasuro contributed
to the success of the dance. "Pakl"
Smith certainly knows how to lead
"i'l ol' jazz band on the piano, and the
new music and excellent time was ap
preciated by all.
New danco features were introduced
during the evening by Fern and
Morgan, floor managers, and they ad
ded pep to the party. Serpentines and
snap frogs also added to the enjoy
ment and tho way couples scrambled
to get on the lucky number when a
prize dance was announced, almost
started several fights.
Several moonlight waltzes were
played and a real-to-goodness moon
"threw it's romantic beams over the
assembled multitude." A prize elim
ination walte brought out a number of
contestants, the first prize being won
by Mr. and Mrs. Foster Horner.
The floor committee, composed of
Miss Cheek, Miss Soule, Mrs. Thos. J.
Soper, Mrs. Sam Carter, Mrs. A.
Horner, Jr., Mr. A. C. Betts, Wm. V.
Wright, Geo. S. Raymond, Charlie
Fern and K. B. Morgan, kept the crowd
on the jump all tho time and made an
effort to see that everyone danced and
had a good time. .
Comrade Sam Carter as "The Prin
cess" gave a real "classy" exhibition
of the hula for tho benoflt of the mala-
hlni3 and this number was greatly
enjoyed by all. Delicious punch and
sandwiches wore served during the
evening and it was a tired, but happy,
throng that joined in singing Aloha Oe
as the clock struck midnight.
Philip L. Rice, commander of tho
local post, desires to express his
thanks through the medium of this
paper, to all who had a part in making
the affair a success.
Tho current topic of discussion at
present is based on the question, "How
soon will the Legion give another

Last Thursday evening at Koloa
Hall, the Kauai soccer lcaguo held its
annual meeting. Mr. E. L. Damkrogcr,
president of the league for tho 1019
1920 season occupied the chair. There
were only three clubs represented
Lihue, McBryde and Makaweli.

was tho election of olilccrs for the
coining season. After a spirited con
test, Mr. Maurice G. Greenly, welfare
superintendent for Koloa plantation,
was elected president. Dr. L. C,
Smith, vice-president, secretary, and
C. G. Kuhlmann, treasurer.
As it was felt deslrablo to have
more than three teams in the league,
It was decided to allow until October
1st for other teams to enter. It is
hoped that Kilauea and Makee plan
tations can enter teams.
As considerable interest was shown
In soccer by tho public last year, al
tho little of the whys and wherefores
of tho game was known, it was agreed
that Mr. Damkroger should write sev
eral articles for the Garden Ioland, in
order that the public might read and
learn tho game.
Tho diroctors of the league are to
constitute a committee on schedules
and appointment of referees. Tho
names of the captains of the teams
should bo sent to the secretary as
soon as possible, as tho captains and
olilccrs of the league constitute the
board of directors, and they are to
meet at Koloa hall on the evening of
League games aro to start at 2:30
p. m., Honolulu time. At the meeting
called for October 1st, the captains arc
requested to bring the official lists of

of difficulties and inconveniences
of transportation. He looks for a
large increase of tourist travel
in the near future, and will en
