Girls' 100 Yard Swim Diving Exhibitions Featured Race
for Girls Under 15 Years Old Promises to Bring New Talen
The final event In the big swim
ming carnival at the V. M. C. A. will
be staged this evening. A record
crowd was on hand In the first even
ing, and there is certain to be another
large crowd in attendance tonight,
when the first event begins at 8
. Tank swimming is increasing In
popularity, and with such a large
number of entries the present meet,
which Is the first A. A. V. champion
ships, has proved a big success. A
number of close races are expected in
the events this evening.
Langer in 500
The 500-yard swim will perhaps be
one of the feature events of the even
In?, and this should bring out some
good talent, although Ludy Langer is
expected to finish ahead of the field.
The women's events, and the service
races are also popular features.
Sheridan Winsor should win out in
the 50-yard novice event over Hitch
cock of the Outrigger, although this
race is expected to be a real finish.
Harvey Is also good over this dis
tance. Hitchcock sprang a surprise
the other evening and may crowd
Wlnaor to the limit
Lant in Century
Clarence Lane is picked to win the
century swim from the other contend
ers, and ought to make pretty fast
time, as he looked especially good In
the 50-yard event on Wednesday. John
Kelil ought to finish second in this
event with Harold Kruger third. Lor-
: rin Thurston has improved greatly
and will no doubt give the three stars
a great race.
In the 60-yard swim for girls under
' 15 years of age, Edith Kenn, the 13-year-old
mermaid. Is figured to win
out by a narrow margin from her
. sister, Thelma Kenn. The younger
tank, swimming, and although she lost
- , out to Thelma in open water, should
win In the 50-yard .tank race. An
other close race ts expected between
v Elsie Auld and Eleanor Lyser for

The La Paloma. the first yacht to
represent Hawaii in the race from the
mainland to Honolulu, has been sold
by (.'. W. Macfarlane to Joseph Paiko,
The Ia Paloma is one of the best
known yacts in Hawaii, ard although
she did not win in her first race, was
responsible for bringing about the bi
ennial races from San Diego to Houo-1
In 1900 Corrmodore Macfarlane of
the Royal Hawaiian Yacht club went
over to San Francisco to arrange for
avi inter-city race between San Fran
Cisco and Honolulu. While at sea fire
and earthquake destroyed San Fran
cisco and .Marcfarlane. upon arriving
at the Golden Gate, found the city in
He then went to San Diego and ar
ranged for the first race. San Diego
entered two yachts, the Lurline and
the English ketch Anemone. In the
first race the Lurline won out. the La
Paloma finishing third. The time was
12 days and five hours. The Hawaii
was entered in the second race in
1908 losing out to the Lurline. The
Hawaii won out in 1U10. defeating the
Sweetheart. This yacht was built espe
cially for the San Diego race.

In baseball men arc supposed to
give and take. In the heat of the
game men sometimes say things that
they are sorry for, but after the last
ball has been pitched, if they are true
sportsmen, they shake hands with a
smile and forgive and forget. That
is the athletic spirit that prevails
among true athletes.
Baseball players and the fans alike
In town are still talking about the
game played betwee n the Ruger
Giants and . the 13th Infantry of
Manila last Saturday. There arc
scores of fans who wished they had
witnessed that game. Those fellows
can be proud of the good showing
made here. However, there won't be
many games of this sort to be played
here at least for some time.
He's coming. Who's coming? Why.
Hotne -Run Cummings Is coming for
another circuit drive. He did the
stunt against his soldier brothers
last Saturday at Moiliili Field with a
homer which sent the visiting team
back in the transport en route to the
coast. The fans of the city are won

game he plays.
Crafton of the Wreckers is shining
again. In the last few games played
his'hittlng was up to the old time form
again. Fans remembered that Craf

or eight months ago and was unable
to play for months. A coast team is
about to come and with Crafton on the
job "we should worry."

En Sue, the fleet footed center-
fielder of the Chinese team was the
star hitter in the Wreckers-Chinese
game out at Schofield Sunday. He
made three hits out of five chances at
the rubber. When a player can wing
out three hits against the Wreckers
be is some hitter.
Baseball at Kauai is booming again
They have stopped the game for two
years, but it was given life by the
All-Student team while in the Gardea
Isle. A regular league is now playing
at the Lihue Park every Sunday with
double-headers. There are many good
ball tossers .in the island and among
the strongest teams this year will be
the Lihue bunch. They are going for
the championship which will end with
in a couple of months.
The Mun Lun Chinese School has
made a name in local sports during
the last two months, especially in
baseball. Every day at noon boys
can be seen in the school tossing and
batting the horsehide The school has
turned out many good players who
sre now playing with some of the
leading teams in the city today.

back of him, will go into the game
with strong hoes of bringing home

toes these days and Manager Carr will
haw to dig up a real pitcher to stop
the Giants.
Cummings to Pitch
The Rugerites have played good ball
against the Wreckers, and inasmuch
as Cummings will pitch, a record
crowd is expected out to the game.
Jackson, Rogan or Waterhouse may
work against the Rugerites with John
son behind the bat.
At Athletic park the Chinese team
will meet a combination of players
from the 1st and 2nd Infantry. There
has been some talk of the teams play
ing under the regimental name, but
it is hardly expected that they will.
As yet they have no name, and the
nameless squad will go into the game
dubbed the Nonames.
Many Stars
Owing to the uncertainty in the
baseball situation it is not known
what players will be seen in the line
up, but it is expected that Ralls will
be on hand. With him will perhaps
come Dunlap, Maddis, Judd and some
of the other stars of the Schofield
teams. If this organization can get
together without squabbling, they
ought to put out a good ball team,
but of course would not be eligible
to play at the post series. Brlnza
will be asked to hurl against the
Chinese with Luck Yee and Hoon Ki
on the mound for the Celestials.
Games Saturday
Two good games of baseball have
been scheduled for Saturday after
noon at Moiliili field. In the first
game the Chinese team, winners from
the St. Loui3 squad, will meet the
rejuvenated Hawaiis. The Braves and
McKinley will battle in the second
same. ;
The Chinese have Improved in their
play, and with a victory over St.
Louis, the prospects are bright for a
chance at the pennant. The Hawaiian
also have the pennant bee, and will
without doubt send one of their best
pitchers Into the game to stop the
Sun Hung to Play
Sun Hung will be out on Saturday,
and this should greatly strengthen the
Chinese team. With five good in
flelders the Chinese will be able to
go right after the Hawaii scalps. The
game 6hould resu?t in a close bat
tle, and neither team is selected as
a favorite.
In the second battle the Braves and
McKinley will fight it out. The
Braves hope to win the second series,
and will go out tomorrow to revenge
themselves for the defeat which rob
bed them of the chance to fight it
out with St. Louis in the first series.
The Braves are considered by many
to be the favorites in the second
Sam Ku, Nelson or Perry will per
haps be the Ditcher who will be
ready to down the McKinley team,
while the high school will have Mon
sarrat. Ross, McGowan and Tsukiya
ma ready to go Into the box. McKinley
played great 'ball against the Fili
pinos for seven innings, and then
blew up. Manager Kahalewai said to
day that he was going to go after the
Braves' game with a vengeance.
Healanis vs. Hawaiis
Three teams in the league have 1000
per cent at present. The Filipinos,
Healanis and Hawaiis have not yet
lost a game, and inasmuch as the
Hawaiis and Healanis meet on Sun
day, there will be only two teams
vJ ithout defeat after that date. If the
Chinese should win from the Hawaiis
on Saturday, and the Hawaiis should
then take the Sunday game from the
Healanis, the Filipinos would be the
only team without defeat. Captain
Marcial Is pulling for this arrange
The Healanis will have a string of
pitchers to use in Kuehn, Holllnger,
McTighe, Bushnell and one other,
while John Black is expected to work
for the Hawaiis. A battle between
the two leading teams is certain to
attract much interest. Manager Miles
has not yet arranged for a second
game on Sunday, but without doubt
there will be one.
