Davidsonville Club Starts Move
ment For Training Of Heed
less Automobile Trippers
At a recent meeting of the Women's
f lub of Davidsonville, an organiza
tion which has since its inception
been characterized by push and go, a
member brought up the subject of!
starting a campaign of education for
Sunday visitors to the country.
The Sunday automobile trippers
come in their thousands from Balti
morc, Washington and other towns,
and enpoy the rest and change of a
day in the country. Naturally they
select the prettiest spots on the banks
of the rivers and shores of Chesa
peake Buy to stop the car and spread
the nicnic lunch.
They have a perfect time and re
turn to the city in the evening re
freshed from their outing, and nine
times out of ten they ieuve the place
whore they spent the day. and which
they chose on account of its natural
loveliness, marred and disfigured in
some way. They may have the grace
to pick up the scraps of food and emp
ty tin cans and sardine boxes, but
what about the paper wrappings and
the Sunday papers which they brought
with them to read? In very few in
stances, save when there happen to
be experienced campers in the party,
is there a systematic inspection of the
location immediately before leaving
and a deliberate cleaning up of all
debris, as there should be.
In many cases this is the result of
ignorance. City dwellers do not rea
lize that stray bits of paper, a cigar
butt or peach stone, that are not con
cpicuous eyesores on a street, will rob
a sylvan nook of all its beauty, while
a bit of orange peel on a mountain
snow slope will wreck the scenery
foe miles around. But now that prac
tically every one owns some sort of
electrically propelled machine, and

“Farewell, Daylight-Saving.” will 1
be chirped by Annapolitans early
next Sunday morning, for at 2 a. m.
on August 27 the clocks of the city
will be turned back cnc hour—tnat Is.
to the old-time standard.
Return to “normalcy” in the way of '
clock-settin’, gettin’ up and goin* to
bed hours, will be welcomed by many
persons, while at the same time
there will be others who probably
would like to stretch out the closing
time for daylight-saving until the
chill winds of winter start their Arc
tic assault.
However, the city ordinance relat
ing to and providing for the daylight
saving schedule automatically ex
pires next Sunday at the aforemen
tioned hour, so it behooves everyone
to be “on the mark” and “ready” for
the clock-tinkering” process. It must
be borne in mind that if one forgets
to turn the hands of the clock back
ward an hour next Saturday night,
one will by such forgetfulness be de
prived of sixty minutes of sleep.
Moreover, such lapse of memory may
cause many other little inconveni
ences in the daily routine that might
easily be avoided by remembering

Bond Issue Void, Commission To
Report On Means To
Get Money
To consider the question of secur
ing necessary funds to proceed with
the street and municipal improve
ments, now that the lxtml issue of
$72,000 was held to be void, the Mayor
and City Council will meet in spe
cial session In the municipal build
ing tonight. The matter will be
brought before the City Fathers
through a report by the Finance Com
mission of the Council to which it
was referred for inquiry.^
Bidder Rejects Bonds
It developed formally that the bond
sale was void at a meeting of the
Council held a week ago, when Major
Joseph A. W. Iglehart, of Baltimore,
who had purchased the issue at a
gratifying figure, notified the Council
that he would be compelled to reject
them because the special election,
when the bond issue was put up to
the voters, was not held in the time
stipulated In the act of the last Legis
lature, which act also authorized the
loan. Meanwhile, a tentative offer
was made by a representative of the
Annapolis Banking and Trust Com
pany to help the city out in the emer
gency by a loan at somewhat better
advantage to the city than would have
been the case at five and a half per
cent. Interest on the bonds. It was
suggested in course of the last Coun
cil meeting that the other local bank
ing institutions might pursue a like
course. Hence the question was re
ferred to the Finance Commission,
and it is understood that the commis
sion has made satisfactory arrange
ments to tide over the resultant situ
Ku Klux Holds
Big Meeting In
Lower County
Continuing its activities within the
borders of Anne Arundel county,
Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, yes
terday afternoon staged a demonstra
tion in the village of Friendship In
the lower part of the county. The
ceremonies were held in the Metho
dist Episcopal Church there, and an
address was delivered by Rev. Thomas
E. Jones, pastor of Nicholas Memor
ial Church, at Odenton, who has been
an active worker in the organization.
The Friendship Church was crowded,
many persons bging compelled to
stand outside.
About a dozen automobiles, crowd
ed with men of Annapolis, who had
learned of the plans for the meeting,
made the trip down county. Several of
the Ku Kluxers were in the white
robes, symbolic of the order, and dis
tributed literature among the several
hundred people in the audience.
There was no initiation ceremony,
nor flaming cross, as marks the noc
turnal demonstrations, but a large !
American flag was carried by the
paraders who were enrobed
The Catholic Daughters of America

Local Magistrate Stricken By
Apoplexy And Had Been Dead
About Two Hours. Verdict Of
Two Physicians Who Viewed
AGENT OF S. P. C. /.
J. Roland Brady, for a number of
years police justice of Annapolis, was
found dead in his office in the Court
House here this morning. Death was
pronounced due to apoplexy by I)r.
William S. Welch, who, with Dr.
James J. Murphy, viewed the body
soon after its discovery. An inquest
was deemed unnecessary and the
body was taken charge of by Funeral
Director B. L. Hopping to be prepared
for burial.
Found By S. P. C. A. Agent
Discovery of the body was made by
George C. Blaisdcll, Annapolis agent
for the Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Animals, who had gone to
Mr. Brady’s office at 9:30 o'clock on a
matter of business. Mr. Blaisdell
opened the door and was somewhat
astounded at the sight that confronted
him. Mr. Brady’s body was hanging
over the arm of his chair at his desk,
the head being near the floor. Think
ing possibly that Mr. Brady had fallen
asleep, he raised the body to the
chair. Then, thinking that the magis
trate was 111, or possibly dead, he
notified officials about the Court
House. Meanwhile, officials were
summoned and gave the verdict of
death from the cause as above stated.
The physicians estimated that Mr.
Brady had been dead about two hours.
The body was still warm.
One Of Large Family
Mr. Brady was Cl years old. and
was a native of Annapolis, the son of
the late John W., and Annie M. Brady.
Surviving him are two daughters,
Mrs. Harry Laroy Volk, of New York
City, and Mrs. Henry Chadeayne. of
Cornwall-on-the-Hudson, Now York,
and the following brothers and sis
ters: Miss Elizabeth Brady, C. Ashby
Brady, W. Martin Brady, State Sen
ator A. Theodore Brady, and Walter
L. Brady, all of Annapolis; Mrs. Wal
ter L. Wilson, Province Lake, N. H.;
Mrs. Bruce Gibson, California, and
Joseph Brady, of Baltimore.
The coming midnight will mark the
expiration of the time limit for can
didates for the Fifth District Con
gressional nomination and delegates
to the State conventions of both
Democratic and Republican parties
to file certificates of their candida
cies with the Board of Supervisors of
Elections of the county, under the
provisions of the primary election
law. It is not believed there will be
any more candidates to enter the field
for Congress. As to convention dele
gates, it is not unlikely that these
will hold off until late in the day.
Clinton Shaw, clerk to the Elec
tion Board, will be at his office until
midnight to receive any papers to be
filed. ,
The first shot incident to the foot
ball season at the Naval Academy was
fired Saturday night when “Bob” Fol
well, head coach of the gridders de
livered an address before the middies
of the new fourth class. Moving pic
tures of the Army-Navy football game
of last season which was won by the
midshipmen, were shown the “Plehes.”’
This afternoon, members of the
class who intend trying for places
on the team or squad will have their
first practice under the direction of
Folwell. The work, of course, will
be entirely of an elementary order.

much of football weather, and is cal

Not For Prospective Warfare
But Preserving Peace, He
Says In Address
(By The Aniuciattd Pm*.)
WASHINGTON, D. C., Aug. 21
President Harding in an address here
today to citizen-soldiers from Camp
Meade, Md., declared he favored mili
tary training "for more than 100,000”
civilians annually, not for any pros
pective aggressive warfare, but to pre
serve peace.
After reviewing the civilian troops
on the Ellipse, adjacent to the White
House grounds, the President called
attention to the fact that 28,000 civ
ilians were afforded training this
summer compared with 11,000 last
year. The President said the review
had given him new confidence, but
added that there was, not a thought
in America for arms warfare, the na
tion being concerned only in preserv
ing the peace of the world.
In the Camp Meade contingent were
1,000 young men constituting infantry,
medical, artillery and cavalry units
from the District of Columbia, Mary
land, Delaware and Pensylvania who
have been in training for three weeks.
Declaring that the boys had been
benefitted by learning discipline, the
President asserted that "all America
might well benefit by learning a lit
tle more impressively the obligations
of the citizen to hi 3 country.”
Seek Two Men
And Women In
Norris Murder
(By The Atitoriiiled I’resH.)
BALTIMORE, MD., Aug. 21.—From
publicity on every step of the efforts
to capture the bandits who last Fri
day murdered Walter B. Norris in a
day hold-up of the Hicks, Teas and
Norris payroll at Park avenue and
Madison street, the police today turn
ed to a policy of secretedness on their
About the only information obtain
able was the fact that two men and a
woman now are sought as witnesses
or as suspects.
Detectives who arrested the two
Baltimore women (Marie Kistling and
Edna Dorsth) at Norfolk yesterday
are searching for a third, whom they
described as a most important wit
ness in the case they are striving to
build up around suspects in the mur
der. The two women are said by the
police to be intimrte friends of Benny
Lewis and "Wiggles” Smith, two of
the men under arres# in connection
with the case.
"The best show yet” was the verdict
pronounced unanimously on Friday
night by the audience that laughed
steadily for an hour at the entertain
ment given by the "Plebe” Third Bat
talion, commanded by Lieut.-Com
mander W\ N. Richardson, Jr., in the
Auditorium of the Naval Academy.
For sheer pep and enterprise, the
present fourth class excels any that
have been seen for some time, and its
battalion shows, got up with so little
preparation that they almost deserve
to be called impromptu, have fur
nished no little fun and entertainment
to the dull season. Although smaller
than the combined Musical Clubs’ or
chestra, the one that played at the
Friday night show was quite as good
for its size, which is saying a good
deal for the Musical Clubs’ perform
ance was generally conceded to be the
best amateur entertainment given last
The Fourth Battalion will have Its
6how next Wednesday night.

I the craft behaved perfectly and good

Ellyson is well-known in Annapolis.
He was among the first naval officers
to take up aviation and made many
flights about Annapolis when navigat-
I ing the air was in its infancy and the

ago. He was in an accident at one
time that laid him up for several
months. He gave up aviation for two
