LEGION OFFERS BIG PURSES;
FINE RACES ARE
The American Legion plans to
make their racing program on Ar
mistice Day the biggest affair of
Its kind over attempted on Kauai.
They reallzo that to do this lt will
bo necessary to spend moro money
on purses and they have appropriated
a sum that will mako the purses
lurger than over beforo.
Due to the fact that the Gymkha
na will consist of races by gentle
man riders, the committeo are lim
iting the number of professional
races to five as it is not their de
sire to make ail the sports of tho
day, horse racing, oven though lt
Is. the most popular holiday sport
The program will undoubtedly
bring out tho best tulent on Kauai
and for the first time in history it
is rumored that two Honolulu hors
es will be entered. Just who is bo
hind tho movement to import tho
Honolulu horses is not known but
it Is believed that at least one of
them will be entered in tho three
quarter mile free-for-ull against
Bridgeplayor. Bridgeplayer will un
doubtedly bo the favorite In this
event nnd according to past per
formances should win handily but
an importation of a Honolulu horso
may put things in a different light.
Johnny Fernandez is not worrying,
but states the better tho competi
tion tho better the race.
Jimmy Spalding has threo horses
in training and expects to glvo
Johnny some hot competition in tho
shorter races. David Luko will en
ter his flash Pegasus in tho shorter

Bell would nover concede that this
victory was nothing moro than a
