LOCAL ROTARY CLUB TO
PLACE 00 ROAD SIGNS
• ADVERTISING THE CITY
At the instance of the Rotary Club
of Annapolis, plana have been made
, for advertising the city more exten
| Mively. The publicity committee of
that organization has announced that
5 fifty roadside signs, setting forth the
places of interest in the city to tour
ists, and its advantages in general,
now are ready to be placed along the
main arteries of highways leading
from Washington and Baltimore and
all other important roadways leading
into Annapolis. It is pointed out by
the committee that the placing of
I such signs will serve the purpose of
drawing many more touring parties
than now visit the city in course of
the year, especially during the sum
. mer months.
The Rotary Club has received a let
ter of thanks for the manner in whieft
its members received and entertained
: the party of young citizen-soldiers in
training at Camp Meade on the occa
sion of their visit to Annapolis on
Sunday last. The party was made up
j of about .‘IOO youngsters, who came to
the city by trolley from Camp Meade.
First they were taken on a sight-see
ing tour of the city and Naval Acad
emy under the guidance of Rotarians
and members of a citizens’ committee,
of which Itev. James M. Magruder, of
Hockley, near Annapolis, was chair
man, and afterwards they went for a
trip on the bay aboard the steamer
Emerson C. Harrington of the Clai
borne-Annapolis ferry line. The
Rotary Club provided ice cream,
cakes, etc., for the citizen-soldiers
aboard the boat.

(By The AwMoeloted PremO
CHICAGO, ILL., Aug. 9.—The Re
publican party upheld the administra
tion and the Democrats gave a sub
stantial plurality to organization
leaders in Ohio; Governor T. C. Mc-
Rae, of Arkansas, held a lead of more
than two to one over Judge E. P.
Toney for re-nominatlon by the
Democrats, and Judge W. W. Brandon
was apparently leading in the con
test in Alabama as the result of to
day's elections in the three States.
Incomplete returns from Ohio indi
cated that Carmi A. Thompson, back
ed by the Harding forces and sup
ported by the Anti-Saloon League,
had won the Republican nomination
there, while Congressma'n S. D. Fess
held a substantial lead over his op
ponents.
Senator Pomerene was apparently
. re-nominated in the Democratic prim
ary and selection seemed certain of
A. V. Donahey, Democratic standard
bearer in 1920, again for governor.

A serious collision, and one that
narrowly escapeJ being fatal, occur

turn near the Marine Barracks, when

of Carrolton Road, near Baltimore,
crashed into a Franklin touring car
driven by Kelly Blankenship, chauffeur
for Mrs. William H. Teas of near
Hackett’s Point, and completely dem
olished the rear of the latter car.
The occupants were, besides the
chauffeur, Mrs. Teas and her young
son, who is an invalid. The little boy
was fortunately sitting on the front
seat with the chauffeur and escaped
injury, although the chauffeur’s hand
was badly cut and Mrs. Teas was
hurled forward and suffered severe
shoek and bruises. The front of the
FojjJ coupe was also considerably
damaged from the blow it delivered.
Zink was apprehended later in the
afternoon and taken before Magistrate
J. Roland Brady, who, after hearing
the testimony on both sides, fined Zink
S3OO and costs on the charge of op
erating his automobile while intoxi
cated.
It was testified at the hearing that
Mrs. Teas’ car was rounding the turn
making in toward College Creek
Bridge, and was well over on the
right hand side of the road beyond
the white center line, and that Zink’s
Ford coupe, bound north, came dash
ing up the boulevard toward the turn
at such excessive speed that it crash
ed into the touring car with such force
as to completely wroefe its rear. It /
was also testified that Zink's manner
and actions immediately following the
collison showed intoxication, and that
he made his escape without offering
to render any assistance to the other
parties. Zink denied at the hearing
that he was intoxicated, but blamed
the collision on the driver of the other
car.
