Francis Brown, who holds the
nmuteur championship of the Is
lands and Alec Bell, the Pro. at tlu
Ouhu Country Club, arrived for a
two day stay last Friday momir.j
on the Claudine.
They were mot at tho boat by
James Spalding,, who acted cs Ifcjlr
chief Lost and after a breaUraul
at tho Valley House, they immedi
ately left for Wailua to try out tl.e
lo(ial course.
A foursome was made up, Jim
Spalding and Francis Brown, play
ing Alec Bell and Ed Hunter of the
Audit Company, who was on Kauai
Spalding and Brown won tho fir.it
nine holes, three up and two to g.
For the first nine holes, Brown
turned in a 40 and Spalding a 41.
Bell's score was 43 while Hunter's
was 44.
Spalding took 1 the first hole start
ling everyone by sinking a lotii
puti for a 3. He had driven over the
railroad track a little off line to
the right on his first, and his 'second
put him on the edge of the green.
Brown drove straight for the hole
with a good long drive near the
track. It took him two to get o.i
however and he also sank a Ion,'
putt for a four. Hunter was well
on near the pin in three and alsj
got a four while it took Bell a fivj
as he overshot a mashie on his sec
ond shot after driving off well.
Bell took the second with a 3,
while all the others took a four. No
one was on the green in one, al
though everyone made distance
enough in their drives. A good ap
proach dead to the pin gave Bell
his 3.
Bell and Brown halved the third
with a 4, although Brown had an
opportunity to sink a long putt for
a 3, as he was on in 2. Hunter and
Spalding each took 5s. Neither Bell
nor Brown drove an exceptionally
long ball on this hole but they
played their second shots perfectly
Brown getting on the green and Be:i
getting just outside a wire on tha
far side.
Four 4s were the result of the
fourth. Hunter got the best posi
tion on the drive as both Bell and
Brown drove even with the green,
but went too far to the right and
landed in the sand, Brown landing
near the top of the steps, while Bell's
was not so high. It took both men
two more to get on the green and
one to sink. Both Spalding and Hun
ter were on in two but both took
two putts.
The new fifth was a Waterloo for
the visiting players, all three tak
ing a 6 while Jim Spalding took a
5. Spalding drove his ball just to
the edge of the green. Bell over es

the rough behind the screen on the
top left. Bell had difficulty on tl.e
green as his ball was sunk Into the
Boft sund. Ha got on in three how
ever, but was on the side of the
green nearest the tee and it took
him three putts to get up the hill
and into the cup. Brown also had
trouble getting on the green and also
took three putts. Spalding's rolled
off the green and down into the
sand to the right and it took him
three to get down. Hunter had the
same trouble and it took him three
nutts to sink.

Alec. Bell Mak es
for Wailua Course
The members of the Makaweli
baseball team were guests at a chop
sui dinner last week, the planta
tion acting as hosts for the occa
sion. Those who partook of the
pake kaukau were Damkrogcr, Mar-
callino, Nakashima, Wramp, Kruse,
K. Yamase, S. Yamase, Ah Nee,
Hamada, Watase, Naito, Conant and
After playing over the Wailua
course, both Alec Bell and Francis
Brown expressed themselves favor
ably as to the possibilities of . the
local links.
Francis Brown stated that he be
lieved that It could be made Into one
of the sportiest nine hole courses
that he has seen, and Bell was of
the same opinion, and at the same
time made several recommendations
to James Spalding as to the chang
es that should be made.
His first recommendation was to
change the position of the cup on
tho new fifth. Ho said that the
cup should be placed where the
fence posts are now on the side
near the tee. Placing the cup on
the table made the hole too diffi
cult, lie ulso said that the hole on
the side nearest tho Blxth tee should
be filled and that the green should
bo built so as to completely fill
this space.
On the seventh hole he said that
the green should be brought back
into the space Just below the old
tee for the fifth hole, where there
would be a slight upward slope on
the side away from the tee.
Bell commented particularly on
the present seventh green and said
that the construction was wrong
from two standpoints. First, the
green was small and there was no
thing In the construction to permit
a player to pitch his ball on tho
green with any assurance that it
would stay there, and tho second
was that' the ground around the
green being all sand penalized a
bold player, who would play right
up to the green and perhnps roll
off the green.
By moving the green to the spot
that he recommneded these above
faults would be removed and at the
same time there would be a penalty
in the form of rough ground behind
the green as a penalty overshooting.
On the first hole he recommend
ed that it be lengthened by placing
the green back of the present green
just below the second tee. Ho also
suggested the moving of the first
tee back near the gate so as to add
about 100 yards on to the hole.
The second tee would then be
moved makal as well as away from
the second green, making this hole
a full Iron shot. Part of the hill be
hind the second hole should also be
put in better shape according, so
that a long shot rolling across the
green would not put the player into
Among other recommendations by
Bell were: first penalizing one stroke
to lift out of the railroad track
when playing either the first or
ninth hole. Second moving the ninth
green nearer the track so as to
take it off the line of the first
hole when the hole Is lengthened.
Third sodding the makal side of the
sand hill on the sixth so that a
long drive would roll down the
fairway and not stay In a hole In
Kauai high school defeated the St.
Louis Glee Club football team on
Christmas day nt Lihue Park by the
score of 7 to 0. after one of the
most exciting games of the year.
Kauai scored in the second quar
ter by a wide end run by Paul Rice
who was downed on the 1 yard line
putting them in position to score.
Montgomery then bucked it over.
On the try for the one point Mont
gomery drop-kicked neatly between
the posts.
The St. Louis gang opened up in
the last quarter with short forward
passes and carried the ball about
50 yards down the field to Kauai's
8 yard line and they had four downs
to make tho touchdown in, but the
end of the quarter came before they
could put the ball over.
The high school team wus unusu

The school played better ball against
St. Louis than tliny did against the
