Five Big Fights
at 40-8 Smoker
The Forty and Eight of the Ameri
can Legion are to present a smok
er for the Kauai fight fans on Sat
urday, Novemher 9 at the ne..
Two six-round bouts and thiv
four-round battles are on the pro
gram for that night.
Uattllng Alpio of AhukinI aiu.
Clawi.ammer Woods of Niumal ...
two middleweight will luiUisa u..
mailt event. Alapio is one ot ti. .
best of the local Filipino boys an
is ueiug trained and managed L,
Captain Williamson of Ahukli i.
Captain Williamson Is an old timet
at the ring game and he statu
that he has a comer in Alapio. Tho
Hauler is a fast boy for his weigin
and carries a punch in both hand:..
Woods will bo remembered by lo
cal fight funs for his battle wiiu
Maximo Delacruz, the Kealla flush,
ubout a year ago. Woods does not
cluim much science but Is a willing
mixer and the fans are sure of a
fight when he steps Into the ring.
He has a wicked right, as his
knock-down of Maximo will show.
It took all of Maxlmos cleverness
to prevent a knockout on the nigin
of their battle.
The special event will bring to
gether Young Cornellio of Ahukim
and Kid Uojos of Koloa. Cornell.o
met Kid Lopez, one of the boxers
brought here by Sandow at Kupua
about two weeks ago, and after
mree rounds of battling Lopez' sec
onds threw In a towel when he
could no longer continue. Rojos, who
came to Koloa from Honolulu, has
an enviable reputation as a boxer,
having met Kid Parco, the feather
weight champion of the Islands In
'Honolulu, ltojos lost the decision
to Parco but only by a shade.
This should be one of the best
bouts of the evening, as both boys
are fast and both carry a wallop.
As the local Kizal Club Is offering
a match with Carpelitero to the
winner on Rizal Day, both boys are
out to win. Rojos will weigh 125
while Cornellio will weight 130.
There will be three 4-round pre
liminaries and from the present ar-
rangements it appears that K. O.
Eduardo of Ahukini will meet
Young Metaru of Koloa. Metaru is
a Japanese boy that gave a good
account of himself in the fights
held at Koloa last month. He met
Kid Maximo and fought a torrid
draw with the Flipino boy. Eduardo
is a fast, willing youngster In Cap
tain Williamson's stable.
One-Round Pedro, who ' is another
member of the Captain's young
hopefuls, will meet Maximo of Ko
loa In another of the pr liminaries.
The third prelim, has not yet been
made and it will cither bring to
gether a welterweight of Kealia
and one from Koloa or a bantam
weight from Lihue will meet at Ke
The Forty and Eight's fight club
plan to put on a good show and
one of the rules of the evening
will be that there will be no stall
ing by the fighters.
There will be two classes of mem
bership in the club, citizen and
non-citizen memberships. Non-citizen
membership will be $1. a quar
ter; citizen memberships $1.25 a
quarter. Membership tickets can be
secured from Henry Santos at the
Lihue Store office.

school team is figuring o these
men for substantial gains around
the Vet ends. Uotli of these backs
are hard men to stop and in an
open field, both will cause the Vets
a lot of worry.
Camara and Moragne will more
than likely start at end for the
srhool team, both being veterans
of last year's team. The school team

Earl Longstrcih formerly held the

A number of the members of
the club have been discussing the
advisability of holding a meeting
in regard to reorganizing, the be
lief going abroad that the club has
outgrown its original organization.
It is the opinion of the writer
that there should be a meeting to
decide, as to what work should be
done when the improvements are
started. Jimt at present conditions

a long drive or it takes a perfect
approach to prevent a penalty. 1 he
