rry laado the two hundrad and
twenty yards swim In two mln
utos aud twenty-one and two
tifths geconds. This time broke
tho existing world's record for
the distance.
The water was apparently too
("id or tha distance was too
tueit for the Hawaiian marvel.
Knhanaruoku won the fifty-yard
dash, making the distance In
twenty three and four-fifths sec
onds. The world's record for the 220
yard distance, tank. Is held by
Ii. J. llcbuer, his time being two

flat. Perry McCtilltvTay holds
the open water world's record for
the distance, his time being two

Duke Kahanamoku's world's
record for the fifty-yard dash,
tank, is twenty -three and two

record for the same distance,
mnde in open water, Is twenty
three seconds flat '
While the Associated Press
despatch to The Advertiser is
silent as to whether the two
swimming races were held In a

judged from the times made, that
they were In open water. The
two-twenty has never been con
