Duke is full of interesting gossip of
sport in general and swimming in par
, titular, and it will be many day& be
fore his friends have pumped him dry
for news of the Olympic garnet.
, One question which was fired at him
- almost as soon, as he landed from the
. WUhclmina ycirday wrg how the
' American relay team came to be beatet
. at Stockholm by the Australians. Duke
said that the men who took the second
and third relays for the I American
teim lost considerable distance, and
. that the team as a whole couldn't stan
off the Antipodean speeders. ; Perry
McGllIlvray took the first 200 meters
of the race and gained a trifle on his
man. ; Then Kenneth Hussagh , and
Harry Ilebner each lost water on their
laps, so" that when Duke started cn
tbe final stretch 'he was more ,than 10
yards to the bad. He made up about
' half of this on Hard wick, but could
not catch the speedy Australian.
As. a. farewell to hls-manjL friends .

A college of that sort would do much
for baseball. Recruits trying to break
into the big leagues generally know
little about the real game. A player
may have the makings of a star pitch
er, and not know how to handle him
self. He needs to be developed, and
I think that, with good instructors, a
school of this character would be very
valuable to the game."

The luau that welcomed . home Ha-

j lighted pavilion erected in a few
hours on the lawn of the Kahanamo

gathered more than a hundred of
Duke's friends and acquaintances, in
jvited by the Hui Nalu, the little club
j for water sports which has grown in
i a year from fourteen to more than a
! hundred members, and which Duke's
exploits have made famous. And the
luau wa3 toothsome; the fish and poi
and sweet potatoes and other delica
! cies disappeared as if by magic.

Duke and his family, waited on the
