All eight were charged with disorderly conduct and as-. sault and battery. One man, however, who allegedly hit a Eolice officer with a cement rick, was held pending in vestigation on a charge of intermediate assault and battery. In addition to the eight was a 17-year-old boy whose case was remanded to juvenile authorities. He suffered lacerations to his scalp and was treated at St. Francis Hospital. NINE PERSOXS, including four police officers, were treated at Queen's Hospital for injuries received In the brawl. Three persons were held overnight and one, officer Mer-wyn Lyons Jr., 25, was confined through yesterday with a four-inch cut on his head and other injuries. He was hit by the flying brick. THE MELEE erupted after Curtis Iaukea, the son of Po lice Capt. Curtis P. Iaukea, was declared the winner of the wrestling match for the coveted Hawaiian Heavyweight championship Ring Magazine gold belt. His opponent, Neff Maiava, who had held the title for the past two months, knocked himself out by crashing into the side of the ring after at tempting a misguided head! coveted belt, headed toward butt. Both men were on the auditorium floor. Maiava, a popular Samoan wrestler, "was out cold for about 15 minutes," said referee Frank Merrill.

That was the warning issued here yesterday by Dr. Edgar W. Norris, medical officer in charge of the U. S. Quarantine Station. 0 NORRIS ALERTED the airlines here after receiving confirmation from U.S. Public Health Service headquarters in Washington that Cholera has struck in the Crown Colony area. Pan American World Airways has initiated a telephone campaign to advise all pas sengers with bookings for passage to or through Hong Kong. Pan Am spokesmen said they were not refusing passage to persons who had not yet been immunized against the disease. "BUT WE ARE telling everyone," the spokesmen said, "that they can expect to receive compulsory cholera shots on arrival in Hong Kong if their immunization cards do not show valid shots." Norris said that two shots about five to seven days apart are required to establish immunity to the fast-acting disease. The Hong Kong cholera outbreak appears to have originated with an epidemic in the Kwantung Province of Red China the area abutting the British enclave. 0 THE MICROSCOPIC bacteria slipped first into nearby Portuguese Macao, also on the China mainland, then to Hong Kong. Daily passenger boat schedules are operated between the Portuguese and British colonies. United Press International reported that International health authorities declared Hong Kong to be an "infected" cholera area yesterday. Cholera usually starts with contaminated drinking water. Once the scourge is loose, however, it can spread rapidly from person to person where people are crowded to gether in unsanitary living conditions. O THE OFFICIAL pronouncement of cholera was made in Hong Kong after bacteriological tests on two patients who died. The two cases at first were diagnosed as gastro enteritis, but later were proven as cholera. Two new cases were reported after the announcement was made. The government told residents to adopt precautions against a spread of the disease. ONE OF THE new victims was a sampan woman who developed stomach cramps, began vomiting and died soon after. Another patient, a man, was hospitalized and reported in fair condition. Royall Tyler is considered to have been the first American playwright. mmmmM mmmBMm rtfrtnnrriiiii-n"i ii 1 11 mifsiini - mir" i ill limiiii n'miili iltfjMOsiii 1 11' im i' ' ' 'n I iOinnii ' 'fi 'In f iiWilriifl'i iiWirtmiTirtwm "nf f " Ytiii Miionr riUnnliaifrMMdSiiri'i MWMiii n ornril iirt,iifii ifWlfiWfnfnjWftwiitfmriilii iSsii ii "V'lf Whyd you I on't the yo j have hosne i really want?

Cups, programs and other debris filled the air as Patrolman Larry Goeas and Sgt. Arnold Capellas squeezed themselves between the oncoming crowd and the wrestler on the ramp leading to his dressing room. The crowd ran right over the officers. The wrestler managed to get to his dress. ing room and quickly slammed the door. 0 KEINr UKCEMENTS were called from the nearby police station and they arrived within minutes. The officers waded into the free-for-all, billy clubs swinging and fists flying. About 24 policemen and 30 fans were involved at one time, witnesses said. The crowd was estimated at about 3,000. A man with his right leg bandaged and leaning on a crutch was knocked to t h e ground while an unidentified fighter took the crutch and began attacking the crowd with it. A GROUP fans lifted a bench and tried to use it as a battering-ram to get into Iaukea's dressing room. "It was one of the bloodiest brawls I've ever seen," said Merrill. "Some of those guys went out like they were hit by a steamshovel." Though the fight lasted only 15 minutes, the corridor was stained with blood. People were crouched in corners and sitting on chairs nursing their wounds. Some men, handcuffed by police, stood dazed with blood running down their faces onto their shirts. Many were herded to a waiting ambulance or a riot wagon. WHEN ASKED how he felt, the saddened Maiava lament ed the loss of his championship. But he said, "I didn't remember a thing. I was really out." He did not indicate whether he would seek a re turn match. During the fight, Metro squad policeman Larry Tu-ufulu, 24, had his pistol knocked from its holster.
