I SEVERN BOAT CLUBMEN
1 TO GATHER AROUND THE
. FESTIVE BOARD TONIGHT
Mom! ers of the Severn Boat Club
j will make merry tonight at their an
.! nual banquet to Le held at the club’s
| quarters foot of Gloucester street,
j For a nural er of years the club has
, | made it a point to celebrate Wash-
I i ington's Birthday in some appropriate
man no.\
| For several years a minstrel *>how
was given. Last year, however, it
was found inipossil le to get a troupe
together regularly lecause of busi
ness rr other interference, that is.
to produce a creditable show. A ban
quet was hold Instead, and it was
such an enjoyable success, that it was
decided to repeat this year. Hence
the gathering tonight which has been
arranged by a committee consisting
of Paul Winchester. Garland Healv
and William A. Graham. The func
tions, It is expected, will bring out
practically a full attendance of the
clubmen.
HORSES SLIP AND FALL
IN ICY STREET BEDS
Horces, though they are few about
the streets nowadays because their
services have been largely supplanted
by the motor vans and trucks, had
rough going during the early hours ofi
this morning on account of the icy |
conditions of the street 1 eds. parti
cularly those on the vitrified brick
highways. The snow that fell during
the forenoon of yesterday thawed as
(he sun peeped out. Then came lower
temperature during the night, with
the resultant freeze, and it was hard
lines for those equities not rough
shod. Many animals had falls, and
vehicles to which they had been at
tached had to be left in the streets for
some time.
Of GALE ESTATE, IST
RIVER, FOR DEVELOPMENT
An important deal in county w*a
terfront property which has just been
closed is that by which Louis B.
Myers ami Nevett Simmons have pur
chased a tract of land of about 60 |
acres with over two miles of shore
front along West river adjacent to
Galesville.
The property w’as purchased from
Georgette M. Gale and Lillian S.
Keech, trustees of the estate of the
late George Gale, and as indicated
by the deed placed on file In the of
fice of the Clerk of the Circuit Cour '
at the Court House today, the pur- j
i chase price was alout $20,000.
The properly is situated dircytl}
opposite the site of the Almas Auto
tnolile Club, and is considered to le
one of the finest development pros
pects in that rapidly growing section
of the county. It directly connects
I y Stat£ road with Annapolis, Balti
more and Washington. •
The new owners, it is understood
are planning to immediately place th<
property in the real estate marke:
and have had it platted for that pur
pose.
JTOWI
In selecting an automobile, look
to the accessability of the vari
ous parts. The more complicated
the machinery, the more it will
cost for repairs and adjustments.
The retail price of a car is not al
ways the best guide as to its cost.
The Auto Show will have a line
of cars based on the above prin
ciple.
■ • •
Do you realize that aside from
agriculture, the automotive in
dustry is the largest in the coun
try?
Nearly $3,000,000,000 was spent
in connection therewith in 1922.
• •
The following is quoted from a
letter received from Admiral
Henry B. Wilson. Superintendent
of the Naval Academy:
“I am very glad to co-operate
with the merchants of Annapolis
in their effort to stage a success
ful automobile show ”
This is just one more boost
which makes the management of
* the show feel good.

• mm
This is worth remembering:
Always do the hard work with
your engine while it is hot and
leave the easy jobs for the car
while it is cold. This means the
car should always be left in such
a position that it can be moved
j with the least effort. If for in
stance. the car is left on a hill, it
should be left heading downward;
it’s easier for the motor, when
starting off again. In snow, mud
i or deep sand, make a track to
pull out while the engine is
w-arm; later hen-you start off
again, the engine will have less
’to do and is far less likely to
burn out a bearing.

Before a congregation that com
. pletely filled St. Anne's Church lr."
. night, J. H. Man uder’s l>eautif.i!
sacred cantata, "Olivet to Calvary.'
I was given by a choir of fifty vok“
under the leadership of George A
Webster, organist and choirmaster o
, St. Anne’s. Mr. Webster’s farewc!
musical production at St. Anne's fo’
he is leaving next week for Bostrr
placed his final reputation as a nurd
■al director on a high pedestal, asth
•untata was beautifully given In tin
face of a great many difficulties cl i
to the sickness cf various members o
the choir and fewer rehearsals th.-i
are usually considered necessary
The ensemble singing was excellent
no rough passages marred the her
mony of the composition as a whole
The careful training given by f •
choirmaster showed in the percisic
of the choir’s singing and the clear
i ness of the attack.
Solos Beautifully Rendered
The solo work was also except in i
ally good. Clarence L. Clemson. th
tenor soloist of St. Anne's, was nev
I in better voice; his tone and < nun
j ciation were unusually good and h
sang with great expression. Charli
j H. Shearman, another well-known b
I cal tenor, also gave a beautiful solo
In spite of her recent illness. Mrs
j L. Serle Dederick sang her sopran
| solo very well. Her voice is well cu’
i tivated and of fine quality. Mrs El
liott H. Burwell's solo. "Droop Sucre
Head.” was sung with great beaut
and pathos; it is the culmination v
the Crucifixion, and she rendered i
! with much feeling. Mrs. R. G
j Chaney and Mrs. Charles C. Sin/tor
*M>th contraltos, sang the barlton
solos of the work. Mr 3. Slayton ha
a low musical voice, while Mrf
Chaney sings with a great de-M o
, finish and style, as well as dramati
' feeling.
The bass soloists were Prof. Wilte
jP. Shenton and Prof. L. Serb
Dederick. Mr. Phenton’s sc'os \ver<
well suited to him and gave him a flm
opportunity to show the richness n
his voice, while Professor Ded*ricl
sang the difficult recitatives of hi*
pert very well.
