THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISES: HONOLULU, AHEIL 22, I960.
10 Ln" ILL III Excellent Exhibition at The Y.M.C. A. THE GYMNASTS Closing Out!! Our line of 1900 -2 t t X t as ii f u n Many Clever Athletes Give Evidence Of Skill and Training in Manly Games. The second annual gymnasium ex hibition of the Young Men's Christian Association waa held on Saturday even ing in the presence of a large num ber of friend of the institution. The galleries in the gymnasium proper and the observation room were filled with enthusiastic people who cheered the athletes on in their efforts. The ap pearance and performances of the young people were surprises to many people, and much credit is due to A. J. Coats, the gymnasium director, for his interesting labors. Since his connection with the local Y. M. C. A. the physical director has been able to bring under his skilful training the largest classes, and the young men taking part in the exhibi tion were seemingly in the pink of condition. The program was opened by a march of the athletts, who ranged from young men of experience with physical ap paratus down to small boys just begin ning their gymnasium work. The inarch was solely for the purpose of dis playing proper carriage of the body and limbs, free from artificial restraint. In their neat fitting suits they presented a splendid appearance. In the dumb tWl drill, the aim was to display grace and skill in bringing the principal muscles into play to bring about a general 6ymmetrical develop ment. The clock-like precision of the drill brought forth gpnerous applause from the audience. "Interest was largely centered on the real hard work of the entertainment which consisted of Individual and class work on the parallel bars, horizontal bar, spring board jumping, and the horse. The leaders In the classes were splendid examples of careful training. Frank O. Atherton's popularity as a club swinger has not diminished, and he proved himself an expert and a gen eral favorite, especially among the youngsters who regarded him with awe. Mr. Coats also went through the in tracieS of the movements with a skill that was surprising. The blind-fold boxing match was a source of laughter to tho snpcfafnra and tn tht contestants as well. The fencing drill gave promise of much good work with the foils in the future, and although the blades have been In use for less than a month, their wielders showed spienma wrist move ment.

The forma tion of the seemingly difficult pyramid was easily accomplished, but when the entire group suddenly stretched them selves out and came down in a heap, several of the ladies present screamed, knowing nothing of the trick in falling which saves the performers from the slightest injury. Just as the entertainment was draw ing to a close the electric lights went out and the gymnasium was left In darkness for sometime. The members of the evening class taking part were: Fred. Wright, H.

Board of Health Will Not Permit of Their Erection. Dr. Pratt has begun war on the Chi nese who are erecting lean-tos. This is a violation of the new building regu lations, which provide that a clear air space of ten feet between buildings shall be maintained. The lean-to was erected In rear of a store on Smith street, used as a kitchen, and of the character of the numberless bhack of a similar character so common ia old Chinatown. The main point at issue at the trial was whether the structure was a building in the true sense of the word, or merely an addition to another building. The defense contended that no build ing bad been erected but merely strips of corrugated iron had been extended from a rear fence to the building tokeep the sun off the kitchen utensils. Judge Wilcox found the defendant guilty of the charge, however, and fined him $10. An appeal will be taken to the Circuit Court, in order to get a full Interpreta tion as to what constitutes a building. We wish to inform oar patron that we will not be deterred from pushing forward as rapidly aa possible the con tructioQ of our electric railway and other improvement upon Pacific Heights by reason of a auit recently begun against former own era. The development and aale of Pacific Heights lota will go on unreatralned, and parties seeking choice residence locations will find this a perfect prop erty with an absolutely perfect title. BRUCE.
