Tonight Ludy Langer Will Appear in 500 Yard Event Clarence Lane Pavm-PH tn win Out in Centurv Close Race Expected in Girls' 100 Yard Swim Diving Exhibitions Featured Race for Girls Under 15 Years Old Promises to Bring New Talent Tie final events in the big swim ming carnival at th" Y. M ('. 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 o'clock. 'lank swimming Is increasing In popularity, and with such a large number of entries the present meet, which is the first A. A. I', champion ships, has proved a big success. A number of close races are expected in the eventB this evening. Langer in 500 The 500-yard swim will perhaps be one of the feature events ol the even ing, 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 servi e 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 Winsor to the limit. Lane 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 Kelii 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 50-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 sister has showed to advantage in tank swimming, and although she lost out to Thelma in open water, should win in the 50-yard tank race. An other close race is expected between Elsie Auld and Eleanor Lyser for third place. Pua Kealoha looks like the winner in the breast stroke with William Rowatt making a strong race for sec ond, Richard Carter has (also made good time in this race, and abould fin ish close up with the leaders. Gerd Worth Fayored There is certain to be much interest in the 100 yards women's champion ship, and in this race the longer dis tance will give some of the mermaids an advantage. Gerd, Hiorth should win out in this race' with everything equal, providing that she judges her pace. Kathleen Law is better at the longer distances, and it appears as if her best race would be the 220 or 440: Josephine Hopkins has made good time in the century and ought to finish ahead of the Los Angeles girl. The young ladies will have an opportunity to show what can he done in sprint swimming here. It would not be at all surprising to see the time for the winner around' 1.18. In the 500-yard championship Ludy Langer appears to have the call with Harold Kruger and John Kealoha trailing the champion. Langer showed enough in the 220-yard event to in sure his making good time over this distance. Thurston Improves Th springboard diving should bring out some good exhibitions, anl with Robert Fuller entered, the eventi should be good. Fuller looks like a winner in this event, although Lorrin Thurston has been making some good exhibitions of late, and should beat out Jack Hiorth. Healaai should win out in the relay race which will close the program. A close race is expected between Palama and the unattached team for second place Palama may have the edge with Clarence Lane as an anchor man. Service Events In the 220-yard service event Pingry should come back and defeat Murphy, although the Alert man won out in the 100-yard event. Walker of De Russy is better ever the furlong distance and should win a third place. Murphy rooks the best in the 50-yard - event, sitixough Dodge is expected to crowd rjjm to the limit. Pingry will without doubt make a strong race over this distance. This ought to be a great race throughout, as O'Brien has plenty of speed in the shorter 6prlnts. 500 Yard Championship mm TONIGHT in the Y. M. C. A. Pool is the last night of the first Hawaiian A. A.

HELEN MARTIN IS EXPERT IN EXHIBITIONS It is to be hoped that the Y. M. C. A. will be able to make arrangements to have an exhibition in diving by Miss Helen Martin, the leading child diver of the Pacific coast. Little Helen is now in the city, and was a competitor in the recent trials held at the asso ciation on Tuesday evening. Helen Martin is perhaps better known on the -Pacific coast than in Honolulu, as she has made her repu tation at Idora Park, where she has been giving a number of exhibitions for the past three years. She has the honor of being the youngest member of the Idora Swimming Club, and is also the most popular member. Should the Y. M. C. A. be able to secure the 12-year-old diving cham pion, the interest in these exhibitions will be greatly increased. Miss Mar tin has been training with Miss Ruth Stacker at the Palama Settlement tank. "Isn't she a beauty?" "She has more beauty than sense, my boy." "That's all right. When I want wis dom I can read the encyclopedia." Kansas City Journal. LA PALOMA SOLD; FIRST YACHT TO SAIL IN CLASSIC The La Paloma. the first yacht to I represent Hawaii in the race from the ! mainland to Honolulu, has been sold by C. W. Macfarlane to Joseph Paiko, Sr. The Ia Paloma is one of the best known vacts in Hawaii, and although she did not win in her first race, was responsible for bringing about the bi ennial races from San Diego to Hono lulu. In l?i"6 Commodore Macfarlane of the Royal Hawaiian Yacht club went over to San Francisco to arrange for an 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 ruins. 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 wag 12 days and five hours. The Hawaii was entered in the second race in 190S losing out to the Lurline. The Hawaii won out in 1910. defeating the Sweetheart. This yacht was built espe cially for the San Diego race. DOINGS ON THE DOPE CIRCUIT In baseball men are supposed to give and take. In the heat of the game men sometimes say things that they are sorry' for, but after the last hall has heen nitched. if thev are true sportsmen, they shake hands with a smile and forgive and forget. I hat 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 are 6cores 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, Home 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 dering what he will do in the next game he plays. Crafton of the Wreckers is shining again. In the last few games played his hitting was up to the old time form again. Fans remembered that Craf ton had his ankle broken about seven 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 N 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 are now playing with some of the leading teams in the city today. The Mutual Telephone baseball team will give a benefit dance at Phoenix hall on Saturday evening. The receipts will go toward the pay ment for baseball supplies. It is ex pected that a large crowd will be present. Nelson Kau showed the fans that he can still hurl the underhand ball. He did it when he pitched the strong St. Louis squad to defeat. All the Chi nese needs is a few good pitchers in the Nelson Kau class and the Celes tial team will clean up the other teams with ease. The infield is Just as good as the other teams of the league and with Pong. Tan Lo and Young out in the jungles the outfield is perfect. j There was no question about the : 13th Infantry squad which played the , Ruger Giants, being an excellent team, j In the Manila League the Army team I won the championship, with the Ma nila team second. In a recent box score which has arrived here. 'Bless ing, Baker, Trutner, Rekus, Pitts and Brown are found in the Army lineup, and Stone and Pierce are listed with the Manila team. St Louis lost again to the Chinese team, 7 to S. King Tan and Lai Sinn did not show up for the losers and that may be one reason why they lost. It has been rumored that Lai Sinn will not play any more base ball for some time. If this slugging first baseman should keep out of the Cummings Will Pitch Against Wreckers on Sunday at Post Undefeated Pitcher Will Go Up Against Real Hitting Team Giants Should Give 25th Hard GameSoldier Players Will Meet Chinese at Athletic Park Two Good Games on Saturday at Moiliili Field Healanis Meet Hawaiis Sunday Schofield will witness a real ball game on Sunday when the strong Fort Ruger team meets the -Cth Infantry squad. Cummings, who has never been defeated in a game, will do the mound work for the Rueerites. and Cummings is confident of winning. In the last few rames he has busted up the old ball game with his bat. and with a world of confidence back of him. will go into the game with strong hones of bringing home the bacon. The Rueerites are on their toes these days and Manager Carr will have to dig up a real pitcher to stop the Giants. Cummings to Pitch The Rueerites 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 behfnd 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 vet thev 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 iin. 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, thev ought to put out a good ball team, but of course would not be eligible to play at the post series. Brinza 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 or baseoan nave hn scheduled for Saturday after noon at Moiliili field. In the first game the Chinese team, winners from the St. Louis squad, wXl meet the rejuvenated Hawaiis. The Braves and McKinley will battle in the second game. , . The Chinese have improved in their play, and with a victory over St. T .mi is the nrosnects are bright for a chance at the pennant. The Hawaiis oiar, have the nennant bee. and will without doubt send one of their best pitches into the game to stop tne Celestials. CUMMINGS DEFEATS KELLY AND "CRUMP" IN HURLING DUEL The headquarters company team of Fort Kamehameha league yesterday defeated the fast 91st Company team by the lopsided score of " to . Cummings" pitching for the head quarters team was never in danger. Kelly was nicked for five runs in the first four sessions and was re lieved by "Iefty" Crumpler who held the headquarters sluggers safe for the rest of the game. The 91st has been considered in vincible up to date. WAH MUN SOCIETY WILL GIVE PLAY AT WAIPAHU The Wah Mun Students' Literary society will present two modern Chi niova at Walnahu next Monday and Wednesday, August 13 and 15. The performance will be for the bene fit of the Waipahu Chinese school organized only a month ago and the money derived will go toward a fund for the erection or a new pmiams H COMPANY STILL WINNING H Company of the Baby Regiment still keeps up its winning streak, de feating C Company, 1st Infantry, Wednesday, by the score of 4 to ?. F Company, 1st Infantry, was the nett victims Saturday, winning from them 13 to 8. H Company has a record in the regiment, winning 23 out of 26 games played. H Company challenges and would like to play any team in the Pacic league. Address all communications to E. F. Buckland, Co. H, 32d Infantry. game both Coombs and St. Louis will suffer a great loss. The Filipinos are keeping up their winning streak by taking two victories in two games. How long the winning streak will last remains to be seen. The "Let's Go" boys are dangerous players, when they once start things going. With a new pitcher they should have a good chance to land the second series. Now that the Commercial league series has almost ended, baseball sup porters will see ten teams out of sight and the always free baseball in the cool mornings will not be seen for at least another six months. It is not all over yet as Schumann, Coombs and the Mutual Telephone teams wiil clash for the lead. The teams have already started practise and are ready for the fight in the very near future. Who will win the pennant? FRANCIS OUIMET DRAFTED. BOSTON, July 21. One of those well up toward the head of the draft list was Francis Ouimet, former na tional amateur and open golf cham pion, who won the Western amateur championship last week. Ouimefs number, 2166, waa the twelfth drawn. Nelson Kau gave a good exhibition of pitching against the Hawaiis. and both Kau and Kong are the type of pitchers who should cause the heavy hitting Hawaiis trouble Frank Ka lua will perhaps send Mitchell on the mound, and the tall pitcher has given an example of his work before, and should cause the Chinese some troub le. Sun ung to Play Sun Hung will be out on Saturday, and this should greatly strengthen the Chinese team. With five good in fielders the Chinese will be able to go right after the Hawaii scalps. The game should resuTT in a close bat tle, and neither team is selected as a favorite. In the second battle the Braves and McKinley will fisht it out. The Braves hopeo win the second series, and will go out tomorrow to revenge themselves for the defeat which rob bed tbem 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 series. Sam Ku. Nelson or Perry will per haps be the pitcher who will be readv 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 lOtiO 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 dav. there will be only two teams without 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 ment. The Healanis will have a string of pitchers to use in Kuehn, Hollinger, 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.
