Keceivina the ball from the kickolf. the elusive back dodged one tackier and ran throimh a broken field for 80 yards, storing a touchdown and giving Harry Mellm'H Town Team a victory over the Marine on Saturday at Moiliili field. The lone touchdown with the gpal kick by Kauhane was the only scoring which occurred in this game, which was witnessed by a host of football rant. From a spectacular standpoint It was a beautiful game to watch, and Kauhanes runs off tackle and the two long runs or Clifford Melim were worth while. The local boys relied i tlrely on end running and forward passes, which was enough to give them a victory over the line plunging visitors. The Marines also had an oppor tunity to score in the third quarter, but they fumbled the ball and -iMohharV wa the result. The vis itors changed their tacticg late in the game and worked a number of clever 'forward passes. Kauhane Runa 45 Yarda Noble Kauhane played a beautiful game throughout. Early in the game he tore off a run of 45 yards, and In plays off tackle he seldom failed to gain.- Melim was especially effective fiT skirting the ends, and his dodging runs furnished a number of thrills to the spectators. Brown was the bright and shining Itar for the Marines and proved that tte good things that h- been said rbout him were not altogether fairy 'tales. He ran well with the ball and ' picked bis holes, often gaining through the line for ten yards. Ward and, Anderson were two other play ers whocame into the calcium during the game.- Ward.

Announce ment was made this morning by Geo. Murakami that he had a team lined up which had been practising for two weeks on the bills around the city. Yesterday afternoon the runners took a fo;ir-miIe jaunt no Nutianv and around I-iliha heights. . Murakami has a n::m.)er of runners who recenuy participated in 'be race around the island, and these long dis tance men have ?iown real speed in t'ne tryouts. Among the stars on the team arp ryennna. Saki. Suzuki and Shlrai. Kaiio Matsumoto and Zeni niura are three other runners whe promise to make a good showing in the big race at Hilo on Jany 7. FROM THE SIDE LINES. Davis was not given much work dur ing the firbt quarter in the game at Schofield. The little half back more than made up for it in the latter part of the game, and his good right toe gave the Y. M. C. A. team the victory. Schumacher, the husky center of the 1st Infantry team, was the bright star in the line for the infantry. Time snd again he spilled the play coming through his territory, and his work on Saturday marks him as the foremost man in his position in the islands. Dick Wfiitcomb played another beau tiful game at tackle for the Y. M. O. A. Fagin got through him a couple times on cross bucks, but often Whitcomu stopped the runner dead in his tracks, or threw him for a loss. The Infantry made most . of their gains through the left side of the line. Von Holt did not play his usually good game at all, and McCombs was off the play for the first three quarters. He did Improve in the last quarter and the' same may be said for von Holt. Referee Blowers had to call a close one when Davis booted the ball for three points. He could have called it either way and there would not have been a kick from either side. The ma jority of players on both teams admit ted it was close, and when Blowers "made his decision the Infantry play ers let it go at that. It was a beauti ful kick, and it would have been un fortunate had Davis been robbed of the score. The Infantry lost an excellent chance to score when Don Ladd threw a beautiful forward pass to Mutch. The Infantry right end had it in his hands with a clear field before him, but brought a number of groans from the rooters when he dropped the pig skin. It was the best chance the home team had to score, although had Fagiu sent his place kick over the goal, the game would have .been on ice for the Infantry. Mutch played a beautiful game throughout, and his one slip in drop ping the forward pass was his only bad play oC the day. For all around play he was far and away the best end on the field. Don Ladd has injected a lot of pep into the 1st Infantry team. He ran his team well, and on several occa sions brought the ball up the field for good gains. Ladd was especially good in picking holes in the Y. M. C. A defense. In the game with the Melim team, Boghan was the bright and shining star, but Saturday the backfeiW hon ors must go to Fagin. Fagin had a peculiar shifty motion which brought a number of gains for his team. Bog han was injured early in the game, which put him out of it, but before his injury he ripped the Y. M. C. A. line for big gains. Davis, Lewis. Clifford Melim and Noble Kauhane would make a real back field if one asked for speed. All of these men can run the century un der 10 3-5. Shooting this quartet asound ends would ( certainly worry the oppofaing flank men. Boghan, Steger, Smith and McVey would make a strong combination for hammering the line. A number of the local football play ers were disappointed because the Marines of Mare Island, the champ ion team of the Pacific Coast, did not come here. This team will meet the Atlentown, Pennsylvania, football squad at Pasadena on New Year's Day. This is the team which beat California University twice by more than 20 points, and defeated Oregon 23 to 0. The Marines have not lost a game this year, and furthermore are not liable to. McCurdy, the big blonde of the 1st Infantry, is an all-around player, lie has been used in the back field and on Saturday was sent into the line when Leach was injured. The game between the 32nd Infantry and Y. M. C. A. promises to be a real attraction. Both teams defeated the 1st Infantry by a narrow margin, and there is certain to he nmwd qo BEACH "ADONIS" IS PATRIOTIC S Jit Waikiki Beach is coming into the limelight once more.

The Interclass series was played last Tuesday, Wednesday and Thurs day. On Tuesday the Freshies defeat ed the Seniors by the score of 25 to 8.

Pappas Can Weigh A Ton Says Martin In Real Challenge Sporting Editor. Star-Bulletin. Sir: On behalf of Johnny Martin o? the -Machine Gun Co., I -accept the challenge of Jimmy Pappas. of the 4th Cavalry. As for making the weight 125 lbs. I wish to say that Pappas can weigh a ton if he wants to: Martin being certain of fighting at the feath erweight limit, which is 122 lbs. As for Martin choosing bigger men than himself to box with, 1 wish to point out that this was due to the fact that men of his own weight are so few, that he has been compelled to go out of his class for suitable oppon ents. The fact that he suffered but one defeat since he started 3 years ago, doesn't speak well for the alleged big men at Schofield. Yours truly. O. WETSEL. M. G. Co.. 2nd Inf.

GERMAN EXPERT SAYS DIVER WAR FAILS COPENHAGEN, Denmark. Capt. Persius, naval expert of the Berliner Tageblatt, notes a growing impa tience among Germans with the re sults of the submarine campaign reg istered in a swelling flood of letters demanding an answer to the question. "When shall we have England beat en?" He throws cold water on the optimists, and warns them against ac cepting as reliable figures on de stroyed tonnage. Capt. Persius says that with the 1917 harvest and the imports of grain the food problem can scarcely become a motive, for the next six months at least, to make Great Britain inclined to conclude peace. He holds that the submarine question for the British will be not "Can we continue the war?" but "Will it pay?" Dover corporation nas decided to ask the admiralty to name one of the new warships after the town in vlev of its historic connection with the navy. Granulated , Eyelids, Sore Eye.

Both teams had a well nigh perfect system of defense, such gains as were rcade usually be:ng accomplished hv terrific line drives and an occasional skirting of the end. Only in one or two cases were forward parses snr cessful. Davis, the brilliant player cf the Y. 51. C. A., was easily the star. It was this player who booted the piaskin over the crossbar for three iofnts and victory. Davis was also largely in strumental in working the ball to wit-i in"a kicking distance of goal. The Infantrymen scored their two points on a safety. They punted on fourth down and the pigskin soared close to the goal posts. The ball was recovered and brought almost to the 20 yard line, when a penalty was in flicted on the ' Y" or fifteen yards, vhich set them back to almost 'their goal. Signal for punt was given.

Paul Delaney. has started suit in the district court against Arthur Kirchner for $20,000 damages to his reputation. The buit grows out of a dispute that resulted In the arrest of Sweet last July.
