KAUAI 8M0KER CLUB
STAGES GOOD CARD
Saturday night the Kauai Smoker
Club, sponsored by Kauai volture, La
Socletle Nactonale dea 40 Homines et
8 Cheveaux of tho American Legion
staged the first of a series of smok
ers at the Llhue Armory with a pro
gram consisting of six lively and in
teresting boxing bouts, and to say that
the evening was a success is put
ting it very mildly.
Approximately 400 fight fans turu
ed out to see what Matchmaker Fern
had lined up in the way of a card and
judging from the enthusiasm and ex
pressions of approval voiced by those
in attendance it is safe to say that
everybody got their money's worth
and then some.
The main event between Battling
Alipio of Ahukinl and Clawhammer
Woods of Nlumalu was short and snap
py, Woods disposing of his man via
the knockout route in the second
round. The first round was even
with both boys mixing it up lively,
but 25 seconds after the gong rang for
the second Woods planted a sol
id right to the chin and the Filipino
rawled to the floor in a daze, won
derlng what it was all about, while
Referee Ftrn tolled off the. count ot
The special event between Young
Cornellio of Ahuklni and Frisco Tony
Kojos of Koloa was a humdinger for
one round but the unequal weights ot
the respective fighters told pitifully
in the second round and Referee Fern
stopped the scrap after Cornellio had
hammered Rojos all around the ring.
Kojos gave a splendid exhibition ot
gameness In standing up to a man 25
pounds heavier than himself and at
the same time demonstrated that he
knows considerable about the art of
boxing. Give Rojos an opponent of
equal weight and all our money will
be down on him.
The best bout ot the evening was
put on by Kid Lopez of Koloa and
Young Cornellio of Ahukinl, the same
boy who won from Rojos on a technic
al knockout and was in the nature
of a surprise party as no one had anti
cipated anything of the sort. This
bout was not down on the card but
came about as a result ot the referee
stopping Cornellio-Rojos affair. Kid
Lopez was seconding Rojos when the
latter was forced to throw up the
sponge and was apparently hot under
the collar at seeing his friend Rojos
being hammered around the ring by
his heavier opponent. Acting on an
impulse he climbed into the ring, chal
lenged Cornellio to a match then and
there, was accepted, and rushed .off
to change into his fighting togs.
The Aliplo-Woods fracas was stag
ed in the meantime and then Lopez
and Cornellio climbed thru the ropes
for the last and by far the best bout
of the evening. Four fast and furious
rounds with all the concentrated ac
tion they could muster put into it
served to impress the fans that this
was no love affair or friendly exhibi
tion and the crowd went wild cheer
ing first one fighter and then ' the
The first round was even with Lo
pez displaying some neat and fancy
footwork and both boys getting in
some mean blows. Cornellio had a
shade in the second round flooring
his opponent with a wicked right, but
Lopez was up and at him with re
doubled vigor when the bell rang.
The third round was a lively affair
with Lopez having a shade the better
of the argument. Both boys were rock
ing each other with powerful blows,
but Lopez was cool, collected and smil
ing, while the Filipino was apparently
a little worried.
When the gong rang for the fourth
and final round both fighters hopped
to it with everything they had and it
was a miracle that both survived un
der the heavy punishment they ad
ministered to each other. Ring science
was almost entirely forgotten and toe
to toe slugging was the order of the
day. The bell ended the fight with
both battlers on their feet and going
strong and the judges rendered the
only decision possible by deciding the
bout a draw.
The curtain raiBer brought together
Hesu Monsu of Kealia and Kid Pol-
maras of Koloa at 120 pounds, Pol
marua substituting at the last moment
for Kid Maximo of Koloa who failed
to put In appearance for some reason
or other. The Kealia boy had things
his own way most of the time, winning
three out of the four rounds and the
rfonuinn verv handily. Polmarus
was continually clinching in this bout
Hesus being the aggressor and forcing
the fighting all the way.
The second preliminary was a
friendly exhibition and a poor one at
that between Kid Eduardo of hukinl
and Kid Viuceute of Kapala, substl-
KAUAI SOCCER LEAGUE
WILL START SIX TEAMS
The Kauai Soccer League will
start off its season three weeks
from next Sunday with six teams
battling for the cup. Lihue, Mc
Bryde, Makawell, and Koloa are the
four teams that were In the lea
gue last year, while the new teams
will be Makee and Kekaha.
Makawell, Kekaha and McBrydo
will use the Eleele field as their
home ground, whllo tho other learns
In the leugue will use their own
Littlo Is known about tho strength
of the Makee teum, but it is known
that it will have a fast bunch of far
wards who will be dangerous on ac
count of their speed, but as only two
of. them have had any experience at
soccer there is considerable doubt
as to their accuracy in handling the
ball, the team is liable to be lacking
In scoring ability.
Kekaha will have several veterans
in their line up, but most of the vets
will be backfield men and Kekaha is
liable to be In the same position as
Kapaa when it comes to booting the
ball thru the goal.
Koloa is bound to show important
improvement in this year's race and
if the Koloa team can remove the
one difficulty that they had last year
and it is the same one that will
bother Kekaha and Makee, the in
ability to score, they are going to be
high up in the race.
Makawell was up and coming in
the last half of the season last year
and should continue the good work.
Makaweli will lose a number of good
men to Kekaha, but it is expected
that they will be able to replace
them with some of last year's sub
The Scots will be In the race from
the first game until the last and If
they can find a way past the Llhue
team in their first game of the sea
son they will win the cup. Lihue has
always been the stumbling block for
the Scots and it was due to their in
ability to defeat the county seat team
that cost them the cup last year.
Lihue is a doubtful quantity this
year as it is not exactly known what
the strength ot the team will be. Last
year it was difficult to get .all the
members of the team to show up
tor games and if the same condi
tions exist this eyar,1 last year's
champs will be out of the running.
Plans for staging a mixed doubles
tournament in Llhue have been prac
tically completed and drawings will
be made on Thursday of this week.

KAUAI HIGH TO PLAY
KAPAA ON NEW YEARS DAY
TWO WAIMEA BOYS
ON. NEXT SMOKER CARD
Joe Silva and Kid Oyama ot
Walmea were at the smoker of the
Kauai Athletic association last
Saturday evening and both boys de
clared their willingness to go on
at the next show of the club.
Both boys were on the card pre
sented at Waimea about a year ago
and both won by a K. O. Joe does
not depend upon much cleverness,
but he certainly gives the fans a
run for their money, as he goes at
top speed from bell to bell. Joe
was up against a good boy at the
Waimea smoker but he Bet so fast
a pace that he stopped his opponent
in the second round.
Kid Oyama was also against a
good boy, but let it be said right
here that the Japanese lad sure car
ries a wallop. His style is awkward,
but he sure makes, up for any lack'
ing . style when he lands. He won
his last fight in the first round,
knocking his opponent down three
times and then the referee stopped
the fight to prevent any further
tutlng for young Mitaru, local Jap
anese boxer. Neither fighter hit hard
enough to break a paper bag and the
fans were not a least bit sorry when
this tame affair was over. The judges
declared the bout a draw.
The main preliminary featuring
Young Tomas of Kealia and Kid Ala
sao ot Koloa, was short, sad and
sweet. Tomas was all over his man
with the first bell and after flooring
Alasao twice and then staggering him
with rights and lefts to the face de
llvered at will, Referee Fern stepped
in and awarded the fight to Tomas
Fern showed excellent judgment in
stopping the bout and his action met
with the approval on all sides.
George Telles of Nlumalu was
scheduled to do a battle with Young
Tomas in this bout, but owing to a
sudden addition to his family he was
unable to put in his appearance. How
ever, he states that he will be on hand
next time and guarantees a good ac
count of himself.
Dr. Smith and C. E. Mayne acted
as judges and Earl Longstreth was
The Kauai high school team will
meet the Kapaa team at the Forest
er's celebration on New Year's Day.
For a time it was thought that
there would be no game, as the
first announcement of the commit
tee was that the winner was to
meet Kapaa and as the Vets won
and declared they had enough ' foot
ball for the season and the high
school team seemed unable to play,
on account of the players going to
Honolulu for the holidays.
But matters were straightened uot
when the high school team agreed
to meet the Kapaa team and now
both teams are training hard for
As the Inst game resulted in a
scoreless tie, both teams are out to
get the decision on each other. Ka
paa will have additional strength in
the line and both the offensive and
defensive will be strengthened. It
is possible that Yoshida will be
brought into the backfield for his
line plunging ability, while one of
the backfield men will be shifted
The high school will concentrate
on an aerial attack as It will hardly
expect to waste Us efforts bucking
the heavy Kapaa line. A little more
practice by the ends in receiving
the ball will be In order as there
were several costly fumbles on
passes that would have resulted in
big gains if completed.
There is also a possibility that
the high school team may play a
team made up ot St. Louis players
on Christmas Day. The St. Louis
Glee Club Is expected to tour the
islands during the Christmas holi
days and as there are several of
the school football team In the
glee club, there is a possibility that
the game can be arranged.
