From the first to the la?t event the I Albert Minvielle proved to be a awimmers were u aging a merry bat- j stayer for the longer distances, and al tio .nH nrgpiiiiv pvpn pvpnt waa ! though manv of the fans were confi- closely contested. A large delegation was on hand, but not as many as ought to have been present Tor such a series of events. Governor Lucius Pinkham, General ."Wlsser. General Johnson. Chief Jus lice A. G. M. Robertson. Delegate Ku bio and other prominent people were present at the meet. . Hawaii has been lamenting the fact that there were no long distance swim mers here who could so after the lau rels held by Ross, but last evening Harold Kruger made a same fight in the 800 meters, and although the win ner is always accorded the honor for ( wimming a great race, great credit is due 'Stubby" for his great fight against the Callfornian. I Great Race ' For 40 laps Laager and Kruger ptayed together, touching off at the : Jurns with clock-like precision. Lan ' Ser gained a trifle on the turns, but Kruger kept up his' stroke, and the two long distance swimmers made a Jiard fight for honors, but Langer con llnued on to the line and in the last Yew strokes' won from the local boy . by Inches. ' The time for the race was slow. It was announced last evening that an -English record had been smashed, but the time was 11:43 2-5. - B. B. ' Klernan of Australia In his race to the 900-yard mark made 11:35 2-5, and the 800 meters In 11:2$ 2-5. There is no official record for the S00 meter and had Langer smashed the time made by the other swimmers - the record would not be allowed, as it was made In a 20-yard tank. ' . No Record ' Norman Ross defeated Harold Kru ger by about SO yards in the 88Q-yard race here this year in 11:27 3-5, this being made in open water. ' Langer ' has made the 880 yards in open water In less than 11:30 while the best rec ord for a 20-yard tank for the 880 yards Is 11:14 1-5, made by Harry ; Hebner. - Langer set the pace In the 200 me ters as he did in the 800 meters, and 1 again Kruger stuck to. him as the race proceeded. Langer was swimming in excellent form, and the local tow- headed uatator was plugging along even until the' last lap. The crowd ; was yelling tor "Stubby to win, but " Langer's experience and ability proved too much for the local boy in the last lap. The time was especially good, being only 1 1-5 seconds behind the record held by Vollmer. ' v - v irls Race Features . .; It was .predicted that the race for girls would be. one of the real fea tures of the evening, and it was. From " the start to the finish the. young girls made gre&t showing, and when the line was reached Marion Dowsett and Eleanor Lyser were even Miss Lyser gained on the turn, but in the last few yards Miss Dowsett spurted and -nearly overcame the lead of the young swimmer from the Women's Auxiliary, r The judges were debating as to which swimmer had won and finally decided It a dead heat Edith Kenn was third by about one and one-halt jards.. but the. Judges were so mixed tip that they gave Miss Hopkins a tie for third place with Miss Kenn. It 'was clearly a case of misunderstand ing, as the Palama. girl was clearly entitled to third place, . It might be mentioned thit the three swimmers who finished in the first three places are under. 15 years of age. The time was 34 seconds, although the prelimi nary was. made in 32 2-5. , y . - The 60-yard open proved to be a close one in the early part of the race, j - The ambitious man or nowadays capitalizes his brains by getting knowledge that is in large demand.

Kruger Wins It Stubby Krnger had a walkaway in the 75-yard backstroke, finishing in 49 4-5 seconds. Hebner's time for this distance was 49. Preston Chapin proved to be the real class of the 220 yard novice winning easily. This swimmer has been showing unusual promise and will without doubt be one of Hawaii's real stars in the future. Markham did not appear to be up to his usual form. Hitchcock gave Kelii a great race for 80 yards in the 100 meter open and for a time was leading the Healani swimmer, but Kelii woke up and opened up a big gap in the last lap. The youngsters under 12 years of age got a hand last night when they flashed through the water, and little Burbank. the water wizard, won out in a hot finish. The breaststroke was called no race as the swimmers were disqualified for not swimming the proper breaststroke and failing to touch with both hands. Ah Kin Yee, champion Chinese swimmer of the world, won the 100 yard open event with a margin to spare over Hitchcock. Bob Fuller took the diving honors once more and Chung came back in the 50 and won from Minvielle who had defeated him in the longer event. ' The last event of the evening wasj expected to be a hard fight, but the Auld sisters of Palama gained such a lead over Outrigger awimmers that Josephine Hopkins and Marion Dow sett made a great fight in the last re lay, but Thelma Kenn had a real lead and was not in danger.

CHICAGO : MEDEIUOS WltlUEfl OF HONOLULU GOLF ONE-CLUB CONTEST j Whether there shall be absolutely ' strict conformity to golf rules in the I rather informal one-club tournament ; at Moanalua last Sunday was the ! question upon whose answer depended award of the first prize. I.a3t even ing the committee in charge was still debating the question though inclined j to give a liberal interpretation and j i award the victory to .T. P. Medeiros. j and this v. as done today. i Medeiron, it appears, did not ad-, hero strictly to the ruling regarding! lifting his ball from a hazard. Ap- j preaching the ninth hole Sunday he ; shot the ball into the stream which ! ; runs to the .right (coming home) of. ; te Moanalua fairway. While entitled : to lift his ball and drop it a club's; length from the stream, it is alleged ' 'that it was taken in on the fairgreen : j more than this distance, the player i being unaware of the exact ruling. However, it is pretty certain that i a good many players in the one-club ! contest did not follow the rules to ; the hairsbreadth. The one-club tour i ney furnished a lot of good sport and there is no disposition to take away from Mr. Medeiros the credit for hav ing gone around in winning style. A large number took part and even the near-cloudburst that deluged the val ley did not dampen the enthusiasm. j though it did dampen the skin, of the I Honolulu Golf club folks. Medeiros won with 88 net, using a mid-iron. William Cullen was second with net 90 and William Bell third with 91. Next Sunday the club is pulling off a two-ball foursome. It will be hole- play. Players must be ready to start at 9:15. On the following Sunday the sec ond match of the Honolulu Golf Club vs. Oahu Country Club will be played on the Haleiwa course. Finals of the Honolulu club's four some will be played either onChrist mas Day or the Sunday following. named, but this is the first time that the swimmers were picked in order named for every place in nine races.
