•NEW YORK. Jan. 19.—An indict
ment charging operators of the Com

WALLACE REE StAR
OF FILM, LOSES FIGHT
AGAINST DEADLY DRUGS
Wally Reid has played his lasi j
scene.
After a long, hard fight against!
odds greater than those that he over-!
came in the moving pictures in which j
he starred for eight years, he died in !
a Hollywood sanitarium. Los Angeles.
Cal., yesterday afternoon, his hand in |
the hand of his wife.
The doctor's certificate says he died j
j from congestion of the lungs, but j
everybody who knew him knows the
drug habit killed Wally Reid. Nobody
knows it better than does the young I
and beautiful wife, whose loyal and j
unselfish devotion to him he tried his j
best to reward by putting into his j
1 struggle to free himself every bit of i
his strength and courage.
His stiyngth failed, but his courage
was with him to the last.
"Dot, we’ll beat it yet,” was one of
the last things he said.
Dot was his pet name for his wife— i
Dorothy Davenport Reid, mother of
his six-year-old boy. Bill, and her- 1
self an accomplished actress, who
gave up her own career in moving
pictures where she had been a high
salaried leading woman that she
: might devote herself entirely to him

lELKS'TEAMLOSES
TO INDEPENDENTS
Pinochle Squad Of Firemen
Takes Lodgemen Into
Camp, 31-29
Members of the pinochle team of the
Independent Fire Company today are
wearing the proverbial “smile taat
won’t come off,” and if one perchance
, should mention a certain Brother
Hoyle, he of rule-making fame for
card games, as being the last-word in
authority on matters relating to pin
ochle. it’s almost a foregone conclu
j sioti that aforesaid Independent pin
ochlers would give the daring one :he
! cold and stony stare.
All of which is the natural conse
quence of last night's victory chalked
jup by aforesaid firemen-devotees of
the game of “bid-and-meld” over the
j opposing quartettes representing the
local Elks Club. While the margin of
; victory was not sufficient to make a
rooster lose hiH lusty voire, the final
! team-count standing 31 to 29 with the
I Independents on tlie long t*nd of the
markers, still it was, as one fire lad
die put it “'nuff to bring home the
l aeon.”
Last night's affair, which was held
at the Independent fire quarters, was
; the second of the round-robin series
of games now being staged by the two
teams. The first event was held re
cently at the Elks’ Club and the fra
ternal organization’s team on that oc
| casion came through with flying
colors. Another game wiil be played
February 1 to settle the existing dead
lock in team standing.
Lost Ret, Pit sited Baby Carriage
Despite the fact that they were the
losers last night, the Elks' team got a
i big measure of consolation out of the
; out-door festivities that followed as
1 the result of a wager made between
W. U. McCready, Jr., of the Elks, and
| Harry Green, of the Independents, on
j the outcome of the games played at
their table. According to the terms of
I the wager, the loser was in duty
bound to roll the winner, all comfort
. ably seated in a large baby-carriage,
from the Independent's fire quarters
to Church Circle and return. The Me- j

Dr. C. Alphonso Smith gave a fas

Ly Acoustical Methods."
The guests of the club were wel

by Dr. Guy C. Clements, president of
the club, who said that for six years
j the University Club has been listen
ing to and giving many scientific and
intellectual talks “hut that the club
does not lay claim to a monopoly on
the intellect of Annapolis."
Deep Sea Soundings
Dr. Hayes, who more thany any
other man in America has been re
sponsible for the development of deep
i sea sounding by acoustical methods,
told of the invention of the hydro
phone, an instrument for detecting
and focusing faint underwater
sounds. These instruments were in

A report covering the oyster shell
] planting operations of the Conserva

j which time 200,000 bushels of .'.hells
were returned to the Chesapeake, is
ileing prepared by Swepson Earle,

Mr. Earle states that he will rec

one of the greatest assets of the State.
Approximately the same quantity will

I
1 The Annapolis Public Library has
recently received the gift of an in

i is a very diversified collection, con
taining such things as a crown of
thorns from the Mt. of Olives, a King
. Penguin from the Arctic Sea. a six
foot crocodile from Africa, a marine
, turtle three feet in diameter, and nu
, merous other smaller objects mainly
| ! illustrative of marine life. The col

is hoped that this is the nucleus of
a larger collection so that the library
. may eventually l ecome not only a

museum as well. A further gift of
f j several hundred volumes of standard

Disease Spreads Throughout
City And County, And Naval
Hospital Is Crowded By Mid
shipmen And Enlisted Men
Under Treatment.
PHYSICIANS ISSUE
SOUND WARNINGS
Although no cases have thus far
taken a serious turn, such as devol
| oping into pneumonia, spread of the
j flu” disease has nevertheless reach
jed an alarming stage in Annapolis
j and Anne Arundel county.
While complete figures of the num
ber of cases have not been compiled
it is estimated that several hundred
| persons have been taken down by the
! malady in a mild form. The situa
tion is such, that physicians have
broadcasted warning to all persons to
exercise every possible precaution to
prevent spread of the malady. For
the past few days doctors in the city
and county have been kept almost
constantly busy day and night.
Many Midshipmen Have it
Latest of the developments in con
nection with the spread qf the dis
ease is the fact that more than 150
midshipmen, and 43 enlisted men of
the Navy, the latter including blue
jackets and marines attached to duty
at the local naval station, are ill
of the disease to a more or less ex
j tent. The naval hospital here is re
ported to be crowded, so much so
that cots have been placed in the
corridors and additional help has been
employed to meet the situation. In
addition to the middies and enlisted
men, a number of officers and mem
bers of their families are down with
the disease.
Sound Warnings Issued
Physicians ore warning all persons
suffering from the slightest cold, to
take the utmost precaution, lest a
more serious condition of the ailment
might develop. The disease is report
ed as prevalent in practically every
secion of the county, but Is more in
the epidemic stage in the lower sec
tions. around West river and vicinity.
As previously told in The Evening
j Capital, 75 of the 100 students attend
, ing the High School at Tracy’s Land
ing were taken ill, necessitating clos
ing the school for several days. Twri
er three of the smaller schools around
that neighborhood also have 1 een
olosed.
Aisqiiith Family Hard Hit
Reports have been made of cases
where all, or nearly all, members of
a number of families, are Buffering
rrom the malady. In one particular
instance, that of the family of Mrs.
♦'earl Aisquith, 11 in all, living near
South river, are ill. These patients
are under the care of Dr. John Col
linscn. Not only have physicians in
the city and county been kept con
, stantly on th e go, but the existing
situation Is also reflected in the drug
stores, where the working forces are
busy day and night filling prescrip
tions for the multitude of patients.
