i the membership oi the local lodge of
! Knights of Pythias in plans now be
| ing formulated for the campaign and
i drive for new members throughout the
Domain of Maryland during this tail
At the last meeting an nnusudUy large
attendance Irought out the enthus
iasm which is being shown in the pro
i posed movement and several proposi
tions were generally discussed.* () *
The lodge has selected Mayor*Sam
uel Jones, who is a past officer in the
; local organization, as the “Command
er" in charge of the campaign and
dfive, and it is felt they have an able
and efficient leader.
Team Captains Named
The “captains” of the various teams
hdve teen named by the “commander”
as follows: A. Elwood Martak, Team
No. 1; P. King, Team No. 2;
William H. Weaver. Team No. 3;
Henry T. Boettcher, Team No. 4, and
Richard B. Holliday, Team No. 5
Kach “captain” has named live mem
bers to compose his team, and as
| prizes will be offered to the most suc-
I cessful team, as well as individual
prizes, competition in the drive is ex
pected to be rather keen.
One of the members of the lodge
stated that plans are being informally
discussed to enlarge the present build
ing of the Pythians which is located
on School street. It was said thal
the proposed enlargement would prob
ably mean an additional story, mak
ing the new building three stories
The lodge rooms would be removed
lo the third floor, the second flout
being used for a reception hall, en
tortainments, and the like. In the re
arrangement mention was also made
that one of the offices located on the
ground floor might be renovated and
converted into a library and rest room
for members of the Pythian Order.

. It is understood that the contem
plated changes have been discussed
only informally and have not yet been
presented before the lodge body. How

members have given their approval oi
the plan to make use of one of the
offices for the exclusive use of ite
members, as not only members of the
local lodge would be benefitted, but
visiting Pythians as well. Many young
men in Annapolis would welcome the
advent of such a room as it would
afford similar yet greater advantages
that a “Y” rest room affords.

PRICE TWO CENTS,
DEDICATION OF
DINING ROOM ON
FERROTIER
Former Governor Harrington.
President Of Claiborne-Anna
polis Line. Entertains At
Luncheon Afloat And Tells Of
Financial Growth
I
HEAVY PASSENGER AND
AUTOMOBILE TRAFFIC
To celebrate the opening of the
thoroughly modern and up-to-date
dining room recently built and put
into service on the steamer “Gov.
Emerson C. Harrington,” which plies
the water between here and Clai
borne. officials of the Clalborne-An
napolis Ferry Company yesterday af
ternoon entertained u number of
guests at a luncheon served in the
new eating saloon of the boat while
the Harrington was making n special
two-hour trip from Annapolis to the
mouth of Eastern Bay and return.
The new dining room, which has
been constructed on the second aft
deck of the Harrington, is encased In
glass and will accommodate thirty-six
guests. It was opened to the general
| public a few days ago and officials of
the line stated today that the innova
tion Is one that is greatly pleasing to
the traveling public, as attested by
expressions of approval made by pas
sengers. The former dining room
was located in the hull section of the
boat.
Many Difficulties Surmounted
Former Governor Emerson C. Har
rington. president of the company,
and during whose administration as
Governor of Maryland the ferry lino
was organized and put into operation,
was among those who took the de
lightful water trip yesterday. At
luncheon, the State's former chief
executive delivered a short talk in
which he recounted the many difficul
ties that the company experienced at.
the time of incorporation and in the
first few months of its existence.
Governor Harrington said that, in
view of the obstacles which the com
pany had met and overcome, it was
very gratifying indeed to note the
splendid progress the company has
made.
Financial Growth Shown
Of especial interest to stockholders
and patron’s of the line was the for
mer Governor’s announcement that
he company now is enjoying an ex
cellent financial position. It having
>nly a small current indebtedness
which can be paid almost at any
*ime. The bonded indebtedness
which originally amounted to SIOO,-
)00 has been reduced to $58,000, and
, this whole amount. It Is believed, will
he paid off within at least four years
I time. ,
Trip Across Bay Popular
The growing popularity of the ferry
line, which has brought Annapolis
; and other people of the Western
j Shore into such close proximity to the
eastern side of the Chesapeake is
further evidenced by the fact that the
business done by the company tufa
shown a substantial increase every
month. Based on the volume of busi
ness already done by the company
this year, it is estimated that the line
will have furnished transportation to
approximately 18,000 automobiles and
90,000 passengers during the present
calendar year.
Winding l’p Fourth Sommer
While this is the fourth summer
that the ferry line has been in opera
tion, the company actually has been
in existence little more than three
years, it having been organized In
June, 1919. However, during the
three years, more than 40,000 auto
mobiles and 250,000 passengers have
been carried on its boats, and the
prospects for future business on an
•Yven bigger scale are very bright.
-Among those who went on the wa
*er-trip yesterday were the following:
Former Governor Emerson C. Har
ington, of Cambridge. Md., president
of the line; Mayor Samuel Jones, of
Annapolis; Captain T. C. B. Howard,
general manager of the ferry cona
aany; James F. Strange, Annapolis;
George Dawson and Mr. Dodson, di
rectors of the company; Mr. Cosden.
of St. Michael’s; Mayor Earl Orem, of
Cambridge, Md.; Allen Bowie How
ard, Ferdinand C. Latrobe, Jr., and
