Wnipoli la tho mccca of all sport
lovers on Armlstlco Day and tho
Kauai Post, American Legion, hay
arranged a fine program for that
day. They will have something do
ing doing from tho tlmo that tho
first race starts in tho morning until
tho last "pig" Is stuck In tho gym
khana In the afternoon.
Tho racing program this year
is an unusual one and exciting races
aro tho feature of tho day. Can Din
ner Hell defeat Golden Spray in the
milo and then como hack and show
his heels to Dridgoplayor and Mary
Jay In tho mllo and a quarter? That
is tho question that tho racing fans
aro asking and tho hackers of Saka
moto's stallion think ho can and
aro willing to back their opinion with
many bags of rice.
There aro plenty of racing enthus
iasts who believe that Dinner Boll
will bo bested in both races and tho
firmest of these is Johnny Fornrn
dez. Johnny has a happy faculty of
picking a winner more often than he
does a loser and there are plen.y
of peoplo on Kauai who aro banking
on his opinion, in theso two races.
Pegasus Is tho favorite in fie
quarter but there are not a few
who believe that Silver Dust will
give the Huleia horso a groat race
Gold Bryan and Pegasus will make
a good race in tho three-eights arid
thero is no doubt that tho horao
that gets the start will finish in front
as they aro very oveuly matched for
There Is just enough uncertainty
in all the races to make them inter
esting and it is without doubt tho
best program yet uut on 'at Wat
pouli. It is difference of opinion that
makes horse racing tho sport that
It is and there is. certainly plenty
of it In regard to tho races on Fri
Two Minute Silent Prayer for the
Tho local post will observe tho
national custom of a two minuto sil
out prayer at noon for tho unknown
dead killed in tho war with Germany
and when the bugle plays Taps it
will bo tho signal for all activities
to ceaso and all those present to
bare thoir heads in honor of . tho
unknown dead. Tho Legion asks for
tho co-operation of all those present
in this matter and asks that specta
tors impress on children and ori
entals who perhaps do not under
stand tho significance of the two
minute silence and tho importance
and neceslty of remaining silent dur
ing this period.
Tho Legion has planned to have
two of the championship games of
the Kauai public schools athletic lea
gue played on the grounds that day.
The first game will start at 10 a. m.
on tho baseball field and tho other
game as soon as possiblo after tho
Rodeo will Hold Interest
The rodeo which will start promptly
at 1 o'clock promises to bo of un
usual interest due to the number of
teams 'entered and tho wido degree of
sports. Tho cowboy team champion
ships will bo tho first half and six
teams aro entered. Grove Farm, LI
huo, Hanamaulu, Waipouli, Makeo
and Princevillo will all bo represent
ed by a team.
This contest will consist of four
events and will bo decided by points.
First place in the events will count
the team five points second place
three, and third place one. Tho team
that scores tho highest number of
points will be declared the champ
ions of Kauai and will each recelvo
a gold medal watch fob and $20 In
cash. Tho team that makes tho sec
ond highest total will recelvo second
prize of ?10 cash each.
Tho four events will consist of a
potato race, a stako race, a mounted
tug of war and a ono mllo relay race.
Each rider must uso tho samo horse
in all ovents.

a coin. It was known to the commit
too that both men are experts nnd
it was doubtful If there were any rop
ers in their class left on tho island
after all tho entries were in. It was
then decided to enter both men to
make sure that the title champion of
Kauai would bo a true one.

and anyone competing in tho cow

There will be just enough novelty
to tho races to be amusing to tho

FATHER AND SO!
Tho Kauai Y.M.C.A. gave ono of
tho finest banquets at the Lihuo
high school last Friday night that
Lihuo men and boys have had tho
opportunity of attending for a long
time. Thero wore 92 paid admissions
40 sons, 4G dads.
It was wonderful to seo the fanv
ily combinations that wero gather
ed together that night. Mon who did
not have sons to bring brought
somebody else's sons, Haole dads
had Chinese Hawaiian and Jap
anese boys. Japanese, Chlneso and
Hnwalian dads had haolo, Japanese.
Chinese or Hawaiian sons. Regard
less of nationality, race or previous
condition of servitude, every dad
was proud of his son. Every son
found out that dad was a protty
gooJ sport after nil.
Tho t.rst half of tho program con
sisted of fruit salads, meat ?oive,
toniat.i sauce, mashed sweet pota
toes, parkerhouse rolls, caramel ico
cre.im. cake and coffee. It was the
first Loir that gavo tho son3 and
dads (he strength and patience lo
stand the terrible ordeal of the f.oc
ond half, when the mass of the
pinlcs had to listen to a few who
lnr.isted on doing all the talking. The
Uil.ers affirmed that what they
said wore toasts. That was pro ihlv
because tho speeches wore so diy

oration of sounds that everybody ;n
side ca led good. Passersby thought
Huit.ua endurance can stana Jjst
so much. As pleasing as tho luii'o
was to tho singers., there came a tune
when they could sing no more. They
wero simply fagged out Then John
Midkiff took an unfair advantas? of
the bunch and made a few rema'k
when they wero too worn out to
stop him. Tho best part Jf his
speech was the b! 'vlty of It. He in
troduced Philip Rico as toastmaster.
Rice Is "Toaster"
Philip Rico was listed on tho pro
gram as the "toas'.er." Thr.z Lift
considerable doubt as to what he in
tended to do to his audience. But no
uas easy on thum. Ho told thiim
a few snappy sto-.'os and then '..

Kenneth Hopper then told tho dads
"When a Poller Neods a Friend."
Kenneth illustrated his point telling
of a boy who swallowed an egg. He
was afraid to jump around because
ho thought ho would break It and
then ho would got a scratch within.
Ho was afraid not to break It be
