Lihue , kept her lead In the soc
cer football ' league by defeating
Mukawelt one to nothing while Me
Dryde was handing a beating to Ko
loa. The game at Kleele waa a taat
and ' furious one, both teams being
: handicapped by the absence of sev
eral players and substitutes were
: rushed In their places. Neither team
. scored In the first half, in fact the
only score in the game, came in tee
last two minutes of the play, Lihue
finally managing to put one thru.
. McBRYDE 2 KOLOA 1
McBryde and Koloa battled hard
.the tailenders, forcing the Scots to
' extend ' themselves to win. Neither
. team scored in the first and the
, first score did not occur until 22
minutes . of the second half when
McBryde scored on a penalty kick.
Koloa came right back and with
some fast football, tied it up. Mc
Bryde then, did the. forcing and Kay
the. center forward caught a ball
just as It was going over the goal
line in the corner and centered it.
The Koloa backs seemed asleep and
made no attempt to kick the ball
out of . danger and Doug. Sinclair
kicked an easy goal.
The last few minutes of the game
was marred by the crabbing of a
couple of the Koloa players and
they were finally put out of the
game by the teferee. They then tried
to take the rest of the players off
with them and it must be said to
the credit of the sportsmanship of
Captain Walaleale that he insisted
on his men continuing the play

the best game of the season and a
big crowd will be on hand.
Koloa and Makawell will meet at
Kleele and the rejuvenated east-end

A NIGHT OF REAL SPORT
A night of real sport typifies the
. athletic night put on by the Wai
inea Young Mens Club last Satur
. day evening at Waimea. From, thj
tightwire work of the Waimea
school oya and girls, the first mini
. her on the program,, to the battle
.royal that closed the show, the
crowd was well entertained.
The tight wire walking by the
' school children was a revelation.
Five boys and two girls performed
and it is hard to believe that they
have been practicing only a little
over a mqnth. They first performed
with the balancing poles and did
some interesting stunts. Later they
only used Japanese umbrellas and
the work of the girls In. particular
brought fprth a great deal of ap
plause from ; the audience.
Japanese fencing was the next
number on the program and It was
thought at first that the Haoles
in the audience would not get much
enjoyment out of this sport, but
the action was so fast and furious
that the haoles cheered as loud as
any of the other spectators.
A series ; of Japanese wrestling
was next on the program, the first
being two 'match bouts, the winner
to take two out of three falls. These
bouts pleased the crowd and then
the match for the championship
was announced. To win the champ
ionship' it was necessary for one
wrestler to throw three men In suc
cession. Aukai, the champion of
Kauai, was the favorite, but Yoka
sakl surprised the crowd by throw
ing Aukai and the other two con
testants ' ' ' ' . '
j, Then came the boxing. Kid An
dreas of Mana and Bantam Gripon
of Camp 8 ' waltzed three rounds to
a draw and the referee made them
go one more round for a decision.
Andreas opened up a bit in this
round and took the decision.
It looked as If the bouts were 50-.

of hefty swings on him he kept

Terrible Aalleen of Camp 8 took
the decision from Battling Eaperas

Some day some one Js going to hit
Thomas while he is doing his foot
work and he will find his legs so
tangled up that he will not get up
before the referee has counted ten.
The main event brought Joe Su
va of Waimea and Fighting Balbino
of Makawell together and it was
tne best bout of the evening. Silva
started right after Balbino in the
first round as if he was going to
massacre him and knocked him thru
the ropes before Balbino knew the
fight had started. It looked like
curtains for Balbino. but the Maka
well boy came right back' and stood
toe to toe with the Waimea fighter.
Silva was plainly tired at the end
of the first round, while Balbino
Silva's seconds warked hard on
him in the second round and advis

round and make the Filipino boy
do the leading. Silva came out of
his corner with a rush and they
fought all over the ring, Balbino not
giving away an inch. In fact he
rocked Silva several times with is
right hand and Silva's corner was
worried. The pace was telling on
both boys at the end of the round
and their seconds worked hard on
them during the minute's respite. .
Silva came out strong during the
third and peppered Balbino with
his left and the Filipino could not.

BITS FROM SATURDAY NIGHT'S
Dwight Baldwin wanted to try
the' tight rope as he thought he
could walk it if they would let him

floor. Mr. Sessions looked Dwight
