WAGE OVERCOAT ON IH GAME Carney, Navy, And Mulligan, Army, Rival Leaders, Fast Friends Since Boyhood ' Captain A. G. Carney, of the Navy foot hall eleven, and Captain D. J. Mulligan, of Army, are the Damon and Pythias of the gridiron, insep arable companions in their youth. Yet one is going to be minus au over ci at after the annual service battle next fall. | During the past few days, of Christ mas leave, these rival pigskin lead ers renewed their friendship In New York with much joy on the part of 1 oth parties. Where one went, there went the other. When Mulligan laughed. Carney roared likewise. If one looked mad. it went double. There’s only one thing under the sun these two friends can’t agree upon and that's the outcome of the game at the Polo Grounds next No vember 24. Strangely enough, they're going to play opposite each other, also. For Carney is a left guard and Mulligan a right tackle. Ibitli Hail From New York Both are native New Yorkers. Both went to high school together and there learned to play alongside of each other. Now listen to 'em: Hate to do it, but we’ll sure show you fellows up," chirps Cant. Carney confidently. “Beware of yourself,” answers ('apt. Mulligan. “It'll be two straight victories for Army. Wake up to that fact now.” Finally matters progressed to the point where the confident friends and warriors wagered their Lrass-button ed ovarcoats on the result. Now the loss of an overcoat is j strictly against regulations, and any , Cadet or .Middie returning to his aca j detnic heath without one Is likely to hear of it. An obvious answer would be for each of the rival’s classmates to buy an extra one for their cap -1 taiti. But would they do it? Not they. For it would be admission of weak ness that probably the other team had something on their own. And if any group of football enthusiasts in the world believe their own team is Lest, it is the fine-spirited Army and Annapolis contingents. CONCERT AT EMI MANSION ON IAN. 15; .

BABY NEW YEAR USHERED IN BY EMM Residents Of Annapolis Pursued Time-Honored Customs In Marking Pass Of One Span Of Time To Another—Gun-Firing And Bell-Ringing. SERVICES IN CHURCHES WERE WELL ATTENDED Staid old Annapolis gave a right noisy welcome to the advent of the New Year, and the dying of the old year. And there whs a good bit of merry-making on 'the side, too, with out conduct of the boisterous nature, however. The celebrants began to move about the streets from early Sunday evening until long after midnight, and not a few, remained up and abont all night. Occasionally one would hear a loud howl, or the crack of a pistol shot ring out over the stillness of the night, as some of the folk* finally wended their way homeward. Many Attended “Watch Nights’* As the moments sped closer to the , great divide of time between one an nual span and the next, hundreds of residents cither walked the streets or gathered about firesides in homes, and bade u fond adieu to 1822. or as sembled in the several churches for the watch night services—a touch of the more solemn celebration in wel coming the next year with its 305 days. The services in the churches were largely attended. There was the re trospect over the passing year, it v trials, its difficulties, its blessing, i, and causes for thnnkfuluess or not. and the silent prayer that the New Year will be full of hope. Weather Net A Hamper The threatening conditions of W/*a ther, which later gave way to a g.lc from the southeast and a torrential rain, did not dampen tlio ardor of the crowds that made their way about the streets during the ’Eve. Firing of re volvers marked the principal means of noise-making, and in some sections fire-crackers and pyrotechnics also were exploded. The real demonstra tion began along about 11:45 o'clock.
