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.

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.
