ful outing last Saturday in which some
15 of tho members participated.
Tiiey went by truck to the upper
Wailua Falls, whero they forded tho
river so swollen that it was somewhat
doubtful whether they could make the
crossing by anything short of swim
ming. As it was It took well onto nn
hour to get the party across.
From here thoy hiked makai through
the now homesteads, through tho new
Polahu Park visiting tho hoiau and
then through the rico fields to the
coconut grove, where the commissariat
members of tho club had an excellent
hot lunch waiting for them to which
thoy did ample Justice.
A bath In the river followed, and

were leading tho race with .two vic

such good baseball that thoy wero ox

to Sunday, with two defeats and
zero in the winning column.
The tailendors gave the leaders an
awful wallop in the abdomen in the
tho first inning, from which thoy
never recovered throughout tho bal
ance of the gamo. And, oh, boy, what

final outcome being 15 to 2.
Doubles and triples were as numer
