SUBSCRIPTION RATES, $2.50 PER YEAR 5 CENTS PER COPY
Kauai Post No. 2 of tho American
Legion la planning an unusual and in
teresting Annlstlco Day celebration.
It will be out ot tho ordinary in re
gard to the afternoon sports which
have previously alvays consisted of
polo. Due to the fact that practically
all ot Mr. Spalding's polo horses
havo been turned to tho pasture af
ter a strenuous season In Honolulu,
it was necessary to mako different
arrangements for this year's celebra
tion. A combination gymkhana and rodeo
will furnish tho thrills for tho spec
tators In afternoon. The gymkhana
will consist of a series of events
and riders will be limited to one
horse for tho entire Berles. Points
will bo given for first, second, third
placo on each event, and the riders
scoring the highest total ot points
of the day will bo declared the win
ner of tho meet, second and third
places will be given in like manner.
Limiting a rider' to one horse will
eliminate the possibility ot race
horses being entered.
Although plans for tho rodeo aro
not completed it is hoped that at
least tbe steer roping contest will
bo held. Entries to the steer roping
contest will bo limited so as to bring
out only the best men from each
community or plantation.
As usual, races will form tho main
part of tho morning program and to
Improve tho quality of the races, the
Legion intends to offer larger purs
es than heretofore. A large and var
ied program of races, tho entries ot
which will soon bo opened, will be
published later. James Spalding is
chairman of the racing committee
and those Interested will receive in
formation from him.
An added feature to this year's
celebration will be the presence of
the navy baseball team and the nav
al band. It is planned to have the
baseball team play either the cham
pions or a team of all-stars. The band
will accompany the baseball team
and will furnish the music to liven
up the crowd during the day.
Unless something unforeseen hap
pens, tho navy baseball team and
band aro expected to arrive Thurs
day afternoon, Nov. 10. They are
expected to come on two mine-sweepers
and tho prcsenco of tho sailors
in uniform will bo an added touch
to tho Legion celebration.
It Is also expected that the navy
may bring three or four boxers to
meet some of the local boys or olse
in matches among themselves.
Tho Legion will furnish tree
transportation over tho Ahukinl rail
road to Walpoull. As on Fourth of
July, trains will leave Puhl, Llhuo
mill and Hanamaulu early In tho
morning and will bring all passen
gers back after the day ot sports
has been completed. It will be only
necessary to buy an admission tick
et to secure the transportation.

Tho establishment of the Ancient

try mission has developed and spread
during all these years in Hawaii until
today there aro over 2,000 members
In the Islands.
Forestry preaches "unity" to all who
become members of the order. The
members have united to render each
other benevolence, service, help, and
aid to those of Its members who may
be in distress. It also preaches har
mony and expects the members to
live as good citizens. It not only In
culcates the true principles ot unity,
benovolence and concord and the
binding in one harmonious fellowship
of all those who enlist under tho ban
ner ot thin glorious trinity of virtues,
but it Is to make bstter fathers and
sons of its members. Its true and loy
al members must harken and heed
tho cry of tho widow and orphan.
Forestry spreads benefits to thoso

man of the local delegates to tho

It was decided to hold a regular
monthly meeting on the second Sat
urday of every month and help to
increase attendance at meetings. An
indoor baseball leaguo composed of
members of the Legion with a team
from each judclal district was de
cided upon. Frank Cox of Waimea
was appointed chairman of the base
ball committee and was given author
ity to appoint a member from each
district to handle tho organizing ot
tho team In his district. At present
thero are 'four teams to be entered
Lihue, Kawaihau, Koloa-McBryde and
Makawell-Waimea. Tho committee
planned to hold a doublo header in
tho Makawell community house on
tho evening of Saturday, Oct. 15. The
two west side teams will each play
tho teams from the east side to start
tho ball a rolling.
Tho games will bo as follows: Wal
mca vs. Llhue; Kawaihau vs. Koloa
McBryde. Marcus Monsarratt Is In charge ot
the Koloa-McBrydo team, C. E. Lane
of tho Llhuo, Bill Wright of tho
Waimea and George Raymond of the
Kawaihau won tho out dour ball
championship but aro not going to
have tho aamo walk-away in the Lo
gion's indoor leaguo.
After tho baseball a rogular meet
ing ot the post will bo held. Hereto
fore all the meetings havo been held
in Lihue. With tho inauguration of
tho baseball league and a new idea
of having meetings In different parts
ot tho Island, local officers hope to
Increase materially the attendance at
meetings. 'Another reason for small
attendance at previous meetings has
been tho fact that tho meetings have
been held on mid-week nights and it
was a hardship on plantation men to
attend. It Is hoped that by chang
ing the meeting night to Saturday,
this objection will bo overcome.

Due to the building of the new bun
galows on tho site of last year's

tho Kapaa school will be on a new
