Navy-Georgia Tech Game,Will
Attract Great Crowd—
Zuber At Guard
Saturday will fe the big -football
day of the season in Annapolis, when
the Navy eleven faces the team of
Georgia Tech and a gallery of specta
tors greater than that which attend
ed the Princeton game last year, is
expected to witness the batlte.
laxcal followers of football agree
that the contest with the strong Bnck
nell combination was one of the best
ever staged here, and thqjuigagpjtieul
with the Golden Tornados it is be
liveed will be as hard. "IT not more
stubbornly contorted-, and- ri be fea
tured by much ■pest work-otjlhe spec
tacular order.; wide oeit defense is
a big forte with the Georgians.
News of the strength of the south
erners has reached Annapolis and
head coach Bob Folwell is pointing
his pupils for the fray. The Middies
came out of the gruelling Bueknell
contest in good shape, although sev
eral players have been nursing slight
leg bruises. The pluyers were driven
through a stifT scrimmage yesterday
afternoon following the usual forma
tion and signal drills, but only a few
regulars got into it. A notable change
has been made in the first line de
fense in that Zuber, a strong fellow,
who has been coming along gradual
ly, has replaced Lentz, the former
Rutgers husky at left guard, and
probably will start the game against
Tech. Otherwise the team that faced
Bueknell will be intact for Saturday's
mixnp. Zubor was being groomed as
a center, but he is also a strong
guard.

nie on October 26 Miss Lavinia En
gle state manager of the League will
speak.
j Of special interest to county peo-
I pie is the question of changing the
number of County Commissioners

J JACK FROST ARRIVES;

“Jack Frost” made its first appear-
ance in some sections of Anne Arun

. farmers in the city today. In places

r to have teen quite heavy. No mater
j ial damage will result, however, it is
. said, as the farmers have practically
completed gathering all their crops,
including sweet potatoes.
True to the forecast of the wea

in temperature during the night, after
the winds had hauled around to the

i Fires in furnaces and stoves were
1 stirred, heavier bed clothing was
- hauled from cupboards and today
t many overcoats, furs or other heavy
- garments were very much in order to

SALEM CHURCH-GOERS
SURPRISE THEIR PASTOR
About two score members of the
congregation of Salem Methodist
Episcopal Church. South, last night
sprung a decided surprise- upon theii
pastor, Rev. A. E. Owens, and Mrs
Owens, at the new parsonage on West
street extended in which they took
up their residence two months ago.
The church-goers decided upon the
idea of giving their pastor some sort
of a surprise.. It was arranged that
for last night’s affair, each person
taking part should bring along some
thing byway of provisions, for the
pantry, as well as delicacies, and as
a result the pantry in the parsonage
is pretty well stocked for the minister
and his wife.
A meeting place had been previous
ly arranged, and along about 8 o'clock
the party moved to the parsonage and
completely surprised the minister and
’ his wife. From then until late in the
night, it was a happy party at the
' parsonage. Refreshments, all provid
’ ed by the “surprise hosts and hostes
ses” were served.

Is One Of Three Important Lo
cal Measures To Be Submitted
To Referendum Of Voters At
Election—Sentiment For New
District
THIRD REPEALS ACT
AS TO NOMINATIONS
As election day draws nearer, tha
voters of Anne Arundel county aro
beginning to make repeated inquiries
as to the local laws to be voted on- In
addition to the four acts of the last
Legislature embodying constitutional
amendments, three laws pertaining
exclusively to this county will be on
the official ballot.
One of these laws is that providing
for a board of three county commis
sioners instead of seven, more clearly
defining their duties and centering
their responsibilities; the
salaries of each of the three commis
sioners at SI,OOO a year for a four
year term, and also making revised
regulations as to the road administra
tion. prescribing the qualifications of
(he county road engineer and placing
his salary at $3,500 a year Instead of
$2,000 as at present.
Crenifon Of Seventh District.
One of the other laws is that pro
viding for a division or the present
Eighth district into two districts, the
Seventh and the Eighth, making the
“Swamp” or lower end of the district
and which comprises the new water
front developments along West river,
as the new sub-division, and leaving
the upper part of the district as a
separate unit.
Nomination Of Commissioners
The third referendum Is that re
pealing the law which provides for
each district nominating its own com
missioner. It is generally admitted
that if the three county commissioner
law is ratified at the polls it will do
away with the necessity of this last
mentioned law.
All of the above laws were passed
at the last session of the Legislature
by practically unanimous vote, not
more than one or two votes alto
gether having been cast against any
of them, and were approved in due
i course by the Governor. Shortly
thereafter some political opposition
: developed, said to come chiefly from
certain elements within the “Progres
! sive" faction of the Democratic party,
(although some of its leaders have
announced trtbir hearty support of
it), with the result that peti
tions for a referendum wore
! circulated and the required number of
! names (being at least ten per cent, of
