the judge had recently imposed
as the result of a contempt of
court proceedings in a recent case.
Attornev Kaeo did not consider
that the judge had

all court business is on a standstill

Several others of our residents
have expressed their desire to give
prizes for the successful contest
ants, and the committee feel well
assured, now, that there will be a
first and second prize for each
event' which will be well worth
striviinr for. --to sav nothing of tin-
- m
.. f
satisfaction or winning points tor
one's club and
localitv, which for
manv will be
the chief incentive
for strenuous action.
The list of timers aud field judges
will be announced later.
The Association has decided to
limit the entries in this meet to
men who have been, from the first
of the year, bonafide residents of
Kauai, since the field day is es
pecially for the purpose of bring
ing out the talent on this island,
and the Association considers i t
unwise, in holding this lir.it open
field-day for the- island, to allow
expert athletes with long exp.-rienne
in field athletics to come from
Honolulu and carry off all t h e
valuable prizes fron our local boys,
whose first experience this will lie,
for most of them at anv rate, in
field athletics.
Of course, it should be statu!
here, those bonafide residents of
Kauai who have been at Honolulu
and mainland school and who may
be home again on their vacations,
will be Welcomed on the entry list.
The training quarters, under the
grandstand in Lihue Park have re
cently been fitted out with a shower
bath, by the Plantation authorities
which is much appreciated a u d
made good use of by the athletes.
Rubbing tables have also been
put in, where rub-downs may be
obtained after the hard work in
the field, thus enabling the contest
ants to keep in the best physical
condition and n.-L-vvii.ifrtlR.dn--,.r
of strains to the muscles which are
sure to occur if they are allowed
to become telise.
Athletesill over the island are
advised to practice the different
events under the eyes oft men who
have trained for similar contests in
Honolulu or elsewhere, and to seek
.their advice as much as possible.in
order to avoid the danger of mak
ing serious blunders in their me
thods of training which may de
stroy their chanc of w irji gpoinfs
in the events which 'they will en
