Hall cnp tennis tournament were play ed yesterday but only two of the four clubs' courts were used. The rain was rather more copious in the vicinity of the Neighborhood Club and out at Ma Boa than in town, so the games were all played on the Beretania and the Pacific Club court?.

Bockus was first al lowed fifteen points by the handieap committee but he objected so strenu ously to get into the scratch class that the committee relented and the Sutton irroke artist had to win out so as to ihow them. W. T. Schmidt vs. W. Li. Stanley was the only match that went three sets, Schmidt winning 16, 63, 69. oel Deerr and JI. E. Savage were the only ones who did not play their match.

There seems to le a growing inter est in the proposed' organization of a Hawaiian branch of the Amateur Ath letic Union of the United States, and it is probable that many lines of sport will be represented at the meeting this afternoon, which is called for rive o'clock in Lorrin Andrews' office, to get the local clubs into line.

The Oahu College athletes thought they were unjustly criticized by th High School and Kains in vesterdav morning's issue of The Advertiser as to their playing men on their .teams after they had practically finished the regular courses in th school and in wanting to modify the rules which re stricted their athletic lineups to stu dents up to the mark in four studies, and barring postgraduates and those who had not attended the school one full term'. While the rules, they claim, did not affect the athletic lineups of the other institutions last year, three of their first team men were disqualified and two of the second team on account of the lnr.rks in studies being made every month. Under the High School system of marking at the end of each term, the students were unaffected by this rule. The idea of putting such "a rule into effect, it was said yesterday, was to encourage the students to keep up a high percentage in their studies by de nying them the privilege of indulging their athletic propensities unless thev' kept up to a certain standard in their educational work. The charges that Bill Desha, who is captain of the football team this vear, has passed his eligibility in the atTiletic field, the Funs say, is premature, as this is only his fourth year inthe college. He has played on the first team three years, and e played football on the second team when he was a prep school student, which latter, they declare, does not count. They insist that there is no bad faith on their part and that ath letes re not granted scholarships for the sake of strengthening the teams, and no special inducements are offered to athletes. Only two athletes got into Oahu Col lege, it was explained, by the scholar ship route, and in each instance it mere ly happened so, one being a family affair. Of course, if any of the school alumni see fit to aid a youth, who ap pears to be particularly bright, to se cure an education, it is not the-doings of the college, the Puns assert, and if they happen to have goo. I athletic ma terial they donrt soe why they should he expected to hold them back to suit other schools who may not be so fortunate. CINCINNATI, August 30.

The Marines, they said yesterday, played a good, clean game last year, and with the High School and Kaniehameha out of ths game this year there would only be the Puns and the college teams to play unless the Marines, and possibly the Townies. came in. Some of the Puns those who are not especially mentioned : "- summer as e er. several log are expected tc show up as well. j league club owners have offered their I --tar twirleis sums of money providing l hey win thirty or more games. When George Mul'in had so much dif ficulty in pulling down his prize for winning twenty-live games last season, the Detroit niamg: ment gave it out. that no more bonuses would be offered, as it appeared to handicap this clever tjvirler to a great extent as he neared his goal. At the first glance the offer appears generous enough. When we think of the great number of games in a league schedule it seems eusv enough for a pitcher to win the required number, but it isn't. l'ha-e back through the records of the National League and see how many pitchers have won tnirty games.
