William 11. McGregor, of the
fourth class, bv making him do
rqieatcd physical exercises.
Lieut.-Com. J. A. Murphy. Judge ad
rorate, In his closing remarks, asked
that the court find Robinson guilty
rf ‘cruel hazing,” as set out. He
chimed that the two acts of hazing
which Robinson admitted, were
enough to justify the charge and spe
clflftUons.
Lieut. Horace D. Clarke, counsel
for Robinson, argued (hat the two acts
of luting were light in their nature,
ind that Robinson had nothiug to do
lth the more severe hazing, under
which McGregor collapsed.
The court was closed for consid

‘BRUCE AND RITCHIE
ON EASTERN SHORE
Addressed Large Meeting At
Easton Last Night—Gover
nor Flays G. O. P. Tariff
AT SALISBURY TONIGHT
Continuing hia campaign on the
Eastern Shore. William Cabell Bruce,
Democratic nominee for United States
Senator, last night addressed an audi
ence at Easton which filled the New
Theatre of that city. Governor Rit
chie, Robert E. Lee, chairman of the
State Industrial Accident Commission,
and Miss Margaret Konlg. of Balti
more. also delivered addresses at tha
Easton meeting.
Governor Ritchie said:
“If I had my choice I would make
the public school system the chief de
partment of the State government.
The good roads system probably
would come next. The Democratic
party has amply fulfilled its duty in
regard to both of these.
Tariff Levy Hits Everything
“When you pay State and county
taxes you get a bill and receipt, show- |‘
ing Just what you paid, hut the tariff
‘.axes are levied on everything you
buy; you pay them when you buy a
luart of salt or a suit of clothes.”
The Republican Congress, he said,
by increasing tariff rates and reduc- j
Ing the higher schedules of the in
come tax. has taken burdens from the
rich and imposed them upon the or
dinary man and woman, who cannot
look out for themselves.
Because of the number of speakers
Mr. Bruce made his address brief. He
complimented Talbot county, its peo
ple and Its history, and deprecated the
alleged tendency of his Republican
opponent, Senator France, to appeal
to the radical element In the popula
tion.
Mr. Bruce motored from Baltimore
byway of the Claiborne ferry. On
the boat he. Governor Ritchie and Mr.
Lee were guests of Emerson C. Har
! rington. former Governor, who enter
tained the party at supper and intro
! duced them to the passengers, officers
and crew.
Democrats in Easton assert that
Talbot county, usually close political
ly. will this year give the Democratic
candidates at least 800 majority.
Both Governor Ritchie and Mr.
Bruce are scheduled to speak at the
Arcade Theatre, Salisbury, tonight.

RIDGELY’S PLAYING
FEATURE OF THE FRAY
The St. John’s College football team
defeated the George Washington ele
ven in the game played on the local
institution's gridiron this morning by
a score of 27 to 14.
During the first two periods of the
encounter, George Washington flash
ed very little in the way of a well
knit attack, while its defense was ut
terly unable to stem the onrushes of
Ridgely and Cain, who made repeated
gains through the Capitol City line.
At the end of the first half, St. John's
was on the long end of a 20-0 score*.
In the second half, however, the i
Washingtonians braced and put up a
better exhibition, scoring Us two ‘
touchdowns on a forward pass—Mur
phy to Ptak —and on a recovered
fumble. St. John's was able to reg
ister only a single touchdown in the
final half.
SL John's Starts With Rush 1
St. John's got the jump on their op
ponents right at the outset of the
game, and within a few minutes after
play had started Cain was rushed
across for the cadets’ first touchdown.
All throughout the first period, the of
fense of the Orange and Black was j
far superior to that of George Wash
ington, Ridgely and Cain making j
gains through the Capitol City line al- (
most at will. The cadets. In the main,
resorted to straight football in the ,
first half, employing the forward pass
on only one occasion.
Forward Passes Galore
In the second quarter, George
Washington’s defense showed a little
improvement, but the work of the of
fense was marred by numerous fum- '
bles. The playing of Murphy, quar
terback for G. Washington, was the
outstanding feautre of the Washing
tonian's work. Toward the end of the
second quarter. Washington uncorked
a series of forward passes that looked
dangerous, but they generally came to
naught.
Detailed play of first two periods:
George Washington kicked off to
Ridgely. who carried the ball to St.
John's 44-yard line before being
downed. Ridgely made 9 yards ofT

i Snappy Autumn Weather Greets
Gridiron Gladiators For First
Big Iritersectional Game Ever
Staged On Farragut Field
This Afternoon.
NAVY “STEAM ROLLER"
AGAINST AERIAL FLASHES
-
W ith the midshipmen facing
the swift-moving Georgia Tech
eleven in the first intersectional
gridiron game of any importance
ever played here, today was a
I real “Red Letter” day for football
lat Annapolis. The contest drew
equal interest with the battle be
tween Harvard and the “Praying
Colonels” of Centre College, also
from the “Sunny South,” that is
being played in the Harvard
Stadium at Cambridge. Twcnty
| thousand persons were expected
| to watch the fracas on Farragut
[ Field, and the Navy Athletic au
thorities, utilizing all available
space, had provided seating ac
commodations for more than 1
000.
Weather Conditions Perfect
With a firm turf and weather con
ditions of the clear, sparkling early
autumn order, following a frost last
night, there was snap in the air that
was calculated to make the rival
gridiron gladiators put lots of dasn
and “pep” into their work, and it was
expected that both teams would he
able to pull ofT some brilliant and
'spectacular open field plays, va the
{aerial route.
Viewed As Even C hance
There was no ruling favorite among
! close followers of the great autumn
spirt, nor among the bettors. On the
contrary the game was regarded as
an oven chance, but there was a good
measure of quiet confidence among
the players, and those In close touch
; with them, as to the ultimate out
come. The Navy blue will, of com sc.
i predominate in tho colorful scenea
around the battle arena, but hun- .
dreds, yes some several thousand, en
thusiastic supporters of the southern
Institution, assembled in the big
stands, and chair sections about the
greensward, including the entire
| membership of Tech's Bcnior class,
some undergraduate Students, and a
1 band of music. Scores of Georgia
. followers from near and far came to
witness the battle, and the visitors
• found not a few “rooters” among the
; football fans close to base.
Crowd Assembles Early
The out-of-town crowds began.’.ia -
pile into the city along about 10
o’clock. They came by trolley r f*S
over both the main Uue ot thaWawJ f
ington. Baltimore aftdi * *
Electric Railroad, and also the Short
Line divcision of the road, and a con
stant stream of automobiles was to
be seen on both the Washington and
Annapolis-Baltimore pikes. The real
influx of spectators began between
11:30, and from then until after the
i contest had gotten under way, there
was a constant jam due to numerous
special trains that were operated
over the “Electric Line.” Members of
the city police force did extra duty in
handling traffic, and they had a hard
job of it.
“Doping” Out The Game
Getting -down to the game from a
football standpoint, Navy adherents
figured that their “pets,” with the ad
vantage of weight, and perhaps bet
ter physical endurance, the latter of
-which has been a telling factor in*'
many, an athletic battle, would finally
subdue the invaders from Dirie land.
On the other hand. Tech'B supporters
were ready to stake their last that
