Stuart Olivier Retires
As General Manager
Of Baltimore News
<B> 1 li*
BALTIMORE, Ml).. Feb. 28.
Stuart Olivier, for the last fifteen
years general manager of the
Baltimore News, today announced
hig retirement from the paper,
effective tomorrow.
Beyond saying that he felt that
“twenty-five years is a fair span
of a man's life to give up to the
rather wearing burden of news
paper work and newspaper man
agement;* Mr. Olivier said no
thing as to his plans. He also re
tires from the general manage
ment of the Baltimore American.
METER STEAMER
STILL HEMMED IN
DY ICE CONDITIONS
I „
Notwithstanding , the , generally
warm weather, the ice embargo still
continues to greatly impede naviga
tion, and the steamer Annapolis of
the Tolchester Company, again was
prevented from making a run to An
napolis. Officials of the company con
fidently hoped that conditions today
would le such that the trip could be
made.
The Annapolis stood ready to leave
1 her Baltimore pier, but as an indica
tion of the tee jarrt, officials of the
i company telephoned Luther Francis,
Annapolis agent of the Hne, that only
! onu steamer had arrived during the
! morning; and that was one of the big
' bay boats, the Captain of which re
' ported tlint the ice jam was especially
heavy between Thomas Point and
Fort Carroll, at the mouth of Balti
more harbor. Under the circum
stances the Annapplls did not venture
out.
Thore was but one movement of
shipping in the local harbor today.
The big steam hurge of the Standard
Oil Company which put in here yes
terday with a ciirgo of 2.400 barrels
of oil, bound for St. Michael's, Md.,
: went out this morning, and as noth
ing lias since been heard of her, it
is presumed she is making fairway
for her destination.

racing yacht, remains in peart.

mended to President Harding today

l no longer be considered a political
'perquisite of senators and represen-
I tativos, lut should be vested in the

Ira McKee To Captain
Navy Basketballers
Next Season
Ira C. McKee, of Butler, I*a., j
has been elected cajJtain of the
Naval Acadqmy basketball team
for next season. It had been
generally understood that McKee
would le chosen, and tho elec
tion was unanimous. There was
a decided sentiment at the Naval
Academy that McKee was not
only entitled to the basketball
captaincy on account of his xvork
in that sport, but that his serv
ices in athletics generally made it
proper that he should lead a ’team
in his final year at the Academy,
which will be next year.
McKee acted as captain of the
team practically the entire sea
son, leeause of the continued in
disposition of Warren Parr. He
i xvas the heaviest point-scorer of
the squad, caging the ball from
court under varying conditions,
and in shooting from the foul
line, he is rated among the lead
ers in that department. McKee is
halfback on the football team and
also a memler of the baseball
I squad.

tributed for study.
A letter was read from Mrs. John
M. Garrett in connection with her
concert work with the “Evergreen

list, and Sylvan Levin, pianist. Mrs.

was taken on getting a concert for
Annapolis as the expenses xvould le
great.

Club Women's annual dinner of which
Mrs. Arthur Owens is chairman.
These dinners are famous, both for
the quantity and quality of the menu
that is served. Persons who are
