Another lull in social events tar
made this week seem intolerably long,
though I don't know just why It should.
Of course, the death of Russell Down
ing, a popular member of the Stanford
University nine, threw a cloud over
the city and caused the postponement
of a number of promising social events.
Then the Stanford boys sailed a bit
sooner than they- expected and that
left some girls feeling less greefui
than uauaL But. what's the difference
between one Tuesday and another? ,

stroke (you know you swim over-hand
with your face under water in that
stroke) when he made a violent grab
at the water and caught hold of the
rope. Choking, , spitting, sputtering;
and blinded by the salt water he man
aped to say, "I i I beg your pardon,
-madame." This brought forth a de
cided sneer and look of scorn from two
or three eplndly girls nearby. He
started off ia quite another direction
when realizing the terrible mistake.
Another incident at Walkikl (good
ness knows there are enough of them)
brought smiles from two or three who
. happened to be lounging near. A very
petite young brunette who had been
flirting outrageously with a rather
good-looking gentleman In the water,
followed him up on to the beach where
he had taken his place beside one of
the Honolulu girls. The gentleman
was a stranger and fast making a
narr.o for tinself with the girls. . She
knew the girl evidently, but slightly,',
or else they were not very good friends
for only K'.isht nods were exchanged.
. Cut bc!Jer still she sat down by
them. Thi3 was all gathered in by the
many onlookers. Petite Brunette Im
mediately took her stand at center
stage and let go a running fire of talk.
We couldn't hslp but hear part of It
which ran seme thins like this: "l
red! thir.h Vd t ctter be going in. No.
I haven't c-t a date tonight I should
worry cut a date." And Ehe delib
erately, cr.e by one, took cut the tor
toise tv.ell hair; !-s, releasing a mass of
chestnut hair. Thl3 done she "pardon- j
td" herself for a moment to put the
pir.3 ur.de r her coat, resting on a near
ly tench. While she was gone the Ho
nolulu f!rl who was quite impersonal,
said, "Why, or why, don't you bite.
Can't you seo w hat she is driving at

champion unwiillng to be termed slow

Ripley, who has spent the last year In
California with her mother, Mrs. C B,
Ripley, Miss Gertrude was attending
Berkeley High until some months ago
when a strenuous attack of measles
which nearly resulted in pneumonia
left her with eyes unfit for studying.
It was quite a disappointment as the
bright girl was on the eve of her grad
uaticn and was making a splendid
name for herself both in studies and
athletics. ;. . v..,;
That Helen Wilder has decided not
to return this year is a, disappoint'
ment to the young folks. She lias been
attending school In the South and has
made up her mind to go into a girl's
vamp for the summer. Last summer
she won the highest honors at the
camp for everything .in the way of
athletics. She took a cup lor the
swimming and diving and an Indian
blanket with her name for. beinz the
best all around girl in the camp. This
is saying . a lot for Hawaii, isn't it?
Laura Low, too, has gone, into the
mounta'ns with a. camp and no telling
what this very nature girl will do. I
suppose what she won't do would be
more to the point. She will not return
to .Honolulu until next year, after her
