the line keeping Just ahead of Tank
who was trying to field the ball
and not allowing him to pass.
King Baggott deserves a lot of
credit for the showing that the Li

heart after the McBryde fiasco but
got the team out and had them
practice and the showing of the
team was the result. The team
played good ball and was on its
toes all the time.

Tilly heaved great ball against
the Grove Farm aggregation, hold
ing the hard-hitting farmers to three
scattered hits. He only struck out
four men but he had the farmers
popping up in the air.
Spalding was the heavy hitting
star of the day, gathering three
hits himself. He connected with
a triple and two singles for the
Jimmy Burgess played sensational
ball at short, gathering up every
thing that came his way besides
backing up the bases in great style.
Charles Fern pulled a funny one In
the first inning when he called Hee
out for Interference. Hee raised a
fly along the first base line and
Jogged along slowly to first, think
ing that the 'ball would be caught,
Tank and Teves both went after
it and Tank ran into Hee from be
hind. Teves, however was in a po
sition to take the fly and dropped it
whereupon Fern called him out for
interference. How could he inter
fere when he was Just going along
and not knowing where the ball
would drop? If it had hit him he
would have been out (if the ball was
fair) but it did not and Tank did
not catch the ball while Teves had
Section 8 of Rule 56, states that
if a base runner intentionally Inter
feres with a thrown ball he should
be declared out. In the 6th, Soong
made a throw to Tsunehlro, play
ing about five feet off second base,
but jirst as the latter was about to
take the throw, Teves ran into him
causing the ball to go to center. The
umpire claimed that the runner
should not be penalized if he runs
into a fielder taking a throw lf.ald
fielder remained on the base path,
but the rules state that the fielder
always has the right of way.
Soong has the distinction of be
ing the first only Makee player to
make a home run this year. The
ball was hit Just right and could
not have made a home run if It
had gone more than ten feet either
The Makees slipped one over in
the ninth when they asked Lihue to
run for Morita. Morlta was badly
hurt, but not seriously and Lihue
allowed Hee to run for him. What
they slipped over was not in ask
ing for a runner for Morita, but in
choosing the runner, as Hee is con
sidered the fastest man on the team.
No other player with the exception
of Shortstop Tsunehlro, could
have reached home on Cummlngs'
single. But how can you blame Tank
as there were already two down
and Cummings looked easy, but it
is all in the game.
Cummings was up in the air in
the sixth and held on to Mitsu's
grounder for dear life, but more
than redeemed himself when he sent
in the tying run in the ninth with
Kenneth Hee played a great game
at third, accepting nine chances
without a miscue. Dol and King ac
cepting seven chances between and
Tsunehlro at short got a hot liner
with one hand. Rodrlgues also field
ed in his usual brilliant manner.
For Lihue, Tank and Mitsumoto
were the fielding stars, the latter
getting six chances without an er
ror. Tank had sixteen outputs to
his credit, six of these being foul
flies. Fugl also played well at third.
The grandstand managers, or sec
ond guessers, of the Makees made
more noise than everybody else in
the park after the seventh when the
Makees failed to score after
two runners were on with none
down. Morita followed orders and
popped up in an attempt to sacri
fice, Cummings filed to left and
Do! popped to third. Morita's at
tempt was good baseball, but the
Hecond guessers demanded Soong's
scalp for It just the same. If Morita
hud popped up, struck out, or hit
into a double play by swinging, we
will bet our coin that the same
grandstand managers would ask why
he wasn't ordered to bunt when a
bunt is much eusler to make than
a hit. But whut's the use, the game
won't even be Interesting if these
second guessers do not take enough
interest to criticize.
GAMES NEXT SUNDAY
Make vs. McBryde, Eleele
The final game of the season oe
tween the champions and the ruu-ners-up
to have been played at Ele
ele two months ago would huve
brought out a record crowd, but
now that the championship is de
cided there may not be as much in
terest as there would be in the
middle of the season.
Many fans are wondering if the
champs can beat the Scots on their
home lot. If they do they will be
the first team to do it this season.
i The Scotsmen tramped over the
farmers and Lihue with overwhelm
ing scores and are just brimming
over with confidence. Makee show
ed many evidences of slipping last
Sunday and at times their playing
could even be called ragged.
The game will make no differ
ence in standings but "old Makee's
proud statement about being able to
beat Tilly "any time, any where"
will be hanging in the balance. Most
of the fans are stringing along with
the Scots to be returned the win

The Garden Island,
Dear Sir: In regard to the regular
scheduled game to be played be
tween McBryde and Makee next Sun
day at Eleele, rumors have reached
various parts of the island that the
Mukee team is going to play sec
ond string players against the Mc
This would of course make a
wonderful alibi for the Makee team
in case of defeat and it looks as
if it were carefully constructed. Ma
kee without a doubt realizes that
the McBryde team Is practically un
beatable on their home grounds and
are protecting their record against
a possible defeat. They could always
point to the fact that it was their
second team that was beaten.
Of course those who really under
stand the conditions would always
- H -
be suspicious that Makee was a
fraid of the McBryde team and
sought the easiest way out of the
Even if Makee was actuated by the
generous motives of giving the sec
ond string players a chance to
play instead of the above reasons
which everyone who has heard the
rumor believes, it would not be
fair to the McBryde fans, who have
been forced to travel to Kapaa twice
to play a second team against their
club. Makee owes it to those fans
to give McBryde the best battle
that they are capable of.
Makee has a wonderful record for
this season but if they do not play
their best against McBryde next
Sunday it will be a blot on the
almost perfect record that would off
set all the good that the team has
done this season.
Perhaps it is all rumor and for
the good record of the Mukee team
we hope it is. Will you kindly
write an editorial o rarticle about
the above so as to inform the Ma
kee players and fans the attitude
of some of the other fans on the
island, for I assure you I am not
alone in my attitude.
Yours for the good of the game.
Editors' Note We believe the a
bovo letter covers the subject as
well as any editorial by us. For the
benefit of those concerned we will
state that this letter was not writ
ten by any person connected either
directly or indirectly with the Mc
Bryde basebull team. The only thing
that we think is lacking is a head
ing. ATTENTION MESSRS. SPALDING,
WOLTERS AND SHELDON!
Up to the time of going to press
we were unable to reach any of
the above gentlemen, but we have
gotten in touch with G. M. Shak,
the well known authority on base
ball, and treasurer of the Makee
baseball team, and he stated that
his views coincide exactly with the
writer of the above and he believes
that Makee should put the best team
possible in the field next Sunday.
Tho singles elimination series
of the Kauai Tennis association is
now down t othe semi-finals after
three series of rattling good tennis.
Sunday afternoon at the Sloggett
court saw the finish of the third
round with the exception of Cor-storphine-A.
Foster Horner defeuted Samura
Ichinose in two straight sets by the
score of 6-2, 6-3. Ichinose was one
of the surprises of the series and
his defeat of Dr. Glalsyer last week
was one of the few upsets of form
during the matches. ''
Frank Burns also defeated Manuel
Nunes in two straight sets by the
score of 6-1, 6-3. The score does
not indicate the class of tennis play
ed in this match. Manuel was plain
ly nervous in tho first shot and
consequently was off his game. He
stiffened up in the second and forc
ed Frank to extend himself to win.
Marcus Monsarratt gave Dwight
Baldwin a mighty battle in their
match, Dwight winning by the score
of 6-3, 6-3. A large percentage of
the games in both seta were duece
games and several times Marcus
had Dwight forty love or forty fif
teen but allowed him to tie it
up and finally win out. Marcus was
another surprise in this series and
is going to be an important factor
in local tennis from now on.
Allen Creevey umpired all the
games while Dr. Glalsyer and
Count Itichter were linesmen for
the first series with Richter and
Turner in the second and Corstor
phine and Burns acted in the third.
It was announced that entries are
now open for the doubles elimina
tion series which will close on Oc
tober 7th. Seven entries have been
received so far and It is hopod to
receive at least five more. Three
entries are expected from Kilauea
and at least two from Lihue. En
tries are being received by Dr.
Glalsyer and entries iflay be made
by telephone. The drawings will
take place on October 8th and the
first round must be finished by
Monday the 17th.
The following entries have been
Hichter and Nunes.
Buldwin and Burns.
Dunn and Damkroger.
Monsarratt and Glaisyer.
Brcnham and Cannon.
Turner and Marcellino.
Horner and Hornor.
Next Sunday at 2:00 p. m. the
semi-finals will be played. Dwight
Baldwin will meet the winner of
the Corstorphino-IIorner series,
while Foster Homer and Frank
Burns will battle It out to see who
meets the winner of the above ser
ies. These matches will be the best
three out of five and will bring out
some real worth while tennis. The
winners will meet at the same
place on the following Sunday to
decide the island championship.
