KAM TEAMS SPLIT EVEN;
LIHUE WINS FIRST GAME
The Kamehameha school teams
broke even In their basketball match
es against the Lthue team and the
Kauai high. The Llhue team won the
first game by the Bcore ot 35 to 20
while the Kam boys won the second
by the score ot 30 to 23.
Llhue started out fast in their
game and took an early lead and
were never headed. Kam was hav
ing considerable trouble finding the
basket and showed that they were
out of practice. Llhue led at the
end of the first half by the score
of 18 to 4. During the third period
Kam about held their own and in
the last period opened up their of
fensive and crept up on the local
team, but the lead established by
Llhue was too great to overcome.
The final whistle found Llhue on
the long end of the score.
The game was fast and the Kam
boys Bhowed that they were cap
able of playing good basketball but
were out of form in their basket
shooting. The game was marred by
one regretable incident when one
of the Kam boys, chafing perhaps,
under his inability to hit the bas
ket, lost his temper and struck his
opponent. Fortunately the Llhue
player had better control of his
temper and the incident passed
without any damage being done ex
cept that the Llhue man is sporting
a wonderful shiner as a memento of
In the second game the Kauai
high seemed unable to get going
while the Kam boys were able to
roll baskets from almost any angle.
The Kam team passed all around
their opponents who did not seem
able to get started. Half time found

RECORD MARKET ACTIVITY
(Facts About Sugar)
The activity and strength of the
sugar market during the past ten
weeks has surprised not only the
numerous body of pessimists who
had predicted a period of stagna
tion and ruinously low prices dtring
the current year, but also those who
were , most optimistic regaruing the
possibility of a broad and vigorous
volume , of trade once the market
was left to be governed only by the
free interplay of supply and demand.
The month of January, usually a
comparatively dull season in the su
gar trade, was marked by the heav
iest Importations, melting and dis
tribution ever recorded for this per
iod of the year. February and the
first half' of March have witnessed
au acceleration rather than' a di
minution in this movement.
Every department of the industry
has shared in this activity. Record
sales in tho raw market have am
ounted to over a million tons, or at
the rate of over five' million a
year, and undoubtedly many trans
actions have not been reported. The
movement of raw supplies from Cuba
has proceeded at a remarkable pace
and with greatest smoothness. Load
ing and shipping a million and a
half bags of sugar in a single
week Is a task of no small propor
tions, but it has been performed by
the fleet serving the sugar trade
between Cuba and the United States
without a hitch.
Much of the activity of the mar
ket has been due to the export de
mand for both raws and refined,
which has not only come from
Europe, but also from China and
Japan, South America and other dis
tant markets. Apprehension was ex
pressed by some market observers
a month ago thut the advance in
quotations for export refined might
cut off the demand from this trade
but the exact contrary has been the
case. At the present time It is im
possible to place export business for
delivery before late April and the
Sugar Export Corporation, which
was considered to have shouldered
a difficult task in attempting to
dispose of 500,000 tons abroad,.' in
sold up until May and apparently
will complete the handling of lis
allotment by the end of that month,
Instead of at the end of August as
had been anticipated by Its promot
ers. In the domestic field, refiners
have been more or less chronically
over-sold the greater part of tho
time since the beginning of the year
COMEDIES COME LAST
In compliance with the request of
many patrons, the Tip Top manage
ment announces that In the future
the comedy pictures will be shown
after the feature films.
OLD KENTUCKY SHINDIG RIVALS
Broadway cabarets stir pity in the
light of the galty of a good old Ken
tucky shindig as shown in "Heart O'
the Hills," adapted from the story by
John . Fox Jr., Mary PIckford's lat
est First National production from
her own studios, and which will be
seen at the Tip Top theater Thurs
day. As Mavis Hawn, the hardworking
and unlucky daughter of a Kentucky

and have enjoyed the unusual ex
perience of being able to operate
continuously at capacity. At the
same time there has been no indi
cation that distributors have been
seeking to accumulate stocks far in
advance of requirements. Jobbers In
general appear to have made their
purchases only for the 30-day-for-ward
period which is normal in
their trade. Wholesalers and retail
ers, who have been ordering only
to suit the demands upon them, re
port a steady and fair sale to con
sumers, who are buying on the ordin
ary basis ot daily or weekly needs.
Increased consumption, both at home
and abroad, as a logical consequence
to low prices and the general im
provement in industrial conditions,
appears to be the explanation of
the exceptionally heavy movement.
Naturally the whole industry is
responding to this vigorous activi
ty. Producers who are trying to get
through the present campaign with
inadequate equipment and make
shift repairs already are. planning
the installation of new machinery
at the end of the grinding season.

down production costs by better
methods in field and mill is the
subject of keen discussoin. every

sible harbinger for the continued
steady progress of the industry on
a sound and substantial basis.
