The football season has started
with a game between Kapaa and Kc
alla on the school grounds on S.n.
day. The most interested spectator
was a goat from the Aiaheluna hos
pital, which took the liberty of as
cending our regular stairs and climb
ing on the roof of the main bulldi:ig.
The goat's hooks were veidently ot
a very excellent non-skid vartfty,
as walking on the edge of the slop
ing galvanized roof did not in th.j
least affect the sureness of her
step. The goat was finally driven
back to terra firma thru the en in-1
route from which she came.
