SAYS OYSTERS AND
SHE FEWER
Conservation Commission In Re
port Submitted To Governor
Ritehie Tells Of Decline
The need to restore the supply of
oysters and shad in Maryland is set
forth in the annual report of the
Conservation Commission, which Har
rison W. Vlckerß, Jr., chairman of
the Commission, has Just forwarded
to Governor Ritchie.
Both the shad and oyster supply
have been declining, the report
points out, and Mr. Vickers has of
fered a remedy in each. He sug
gests that proper State and Federal
legislation be enacted to curb the set
ting of nets; In the report he states
that the nets now are so numerous
ind extend so far beyond their proper
limits that it is practically impossi
ble for the shad to do any more
than enter the bay. Mr. Vickers
states that few of these fish ever
reach the head of tho rivers, their
natural spawning ground.
Oysfer Rocks Depleted
Mr. Vickers points out, too, that
year by year the oyster rocks have
become depleted and resuscitation of
them has been neglected to such an
extent that many rocks formerly pro
ductive to a high degree now are en
tirely barren.
By planting oyster shells on which
the oyster spat might attach itself
and by the transplanting of bivalves
from congested beds and from sec
tions in which they do not thrive be
cause of the lack of natural food in
the waters. Mr. Vickers belioves the
oyster industry soon could be re
stored.
He believes, too. that a large an

eight or ten years with which to be

Ithacans Captured
Contest Getting One More
Fall Than Opponents
For the first time in five years the
colors of the midshipmen were low
ered in a wrestling match. The big
Red grapplers of Cornell University
turned the trick by a score of 13
to 11. the closest of any engagement
.in which the middies have figured.
The margin of difference in the score
was brought about by the fact that
the Ithacans got two falls and one
decision, to the sailors’ one fall and
two decisions, and one bout resulted
in a draw. Five points are credited
for a fall, and 3 for a decision.
The meet was staged in the drill
hall at Ithaca, the trip being the first
the Middies have made away front
home, and was witnessed by a crowd
of more than 2,000 spectators, an un
usual gathering for an athletic event
of the sort at Cornell.
The outcome hinged on the 175-
pound-class event, its which Hanson,
of Cornell, threw Vieftrig, with alody
hold in 5 minutes 2g> seconds after
the Navy man had a i-mlnute advant
age. With Cornell leading ly two
points. Captain Wright, of Cornell,
who Just left the Cornell Infirmary
after a two weeks' illness, played safe j
with Herlihy and did not attempt to'
force the wrestling until after nine
minutes, when he took a 22-second ad
vantage.
Arnold Threw Ills Man
Captain Arnold, of the Navy, wal
the only one of the Middies to se
cure a fall. Opposed by Read. Ar
nold 'found little difficulty in throw
ing his man and obtained a head
scissors, but Read twice broke from
it lefere Arnold was able to make it
effective. Arnold’s time was a little
over two minutes.
In the 115-pound class McWilliams,
of Cornell, secured a time advantage
of over six minutes over Rhea, of
the Navy. McWilliams was aggres
sive and forced the wrestling. Just
as time was called he was forcing
Rhea’s shoulders to the mat, but the
whistle saved the latter.

ALL KOMAR
LECTURE ON LEPROSY
Do you know that there are two
thousand lepers in the United States
waiting for the Hospital No. 66 at
Carville, La., to be enlarged to ac-:
commodate them? To those of us
who have been regarding leprosy as
an affliction almost extinct, this infor
mation conies as a decided shock, but
the stereopticon slides to be used
Thursday at College Ave. Baptist
Church in demonstration of this and
other truths in connection with thi?
disease will prove the falsity of this
general attitude on the part of the
public. Only be segregating the dis
ease may we hope to wipe it out, as
has been done with yellow fever,
hook-worm and similar terrible
scourges. There is a body of interest
ed men and women, known as the
Mission to Lepers, embracing all de
nominations. The aim of this organi
zation is to cheer and aid in every
possible way these outcasts—the most
miserable in human society.
Come, and learn more about it at
College Avenue Baptist Church on
' Thursday evening at 8 p. m.

I SLIGHT FIRES
OCCUR WITHIN SHORT
TIME OF ONE ANOTHER
Two general alarms of fire sound
ed In the very early hours of Sunday
morning, trought out large •delega
tions of volunteer fire fighters, as well
as hundreds of residents of the city
who had settled themselves into deep
slumber. The first alarm sounded
shortly before 1 o’clock, was for a
blaze that broke out in small wooden
sheds, used as summer kitchens, in
the rear of houses on Washington
street. The glare from the flames
could le seen from a great distance,
and for a time the row of dwelling
houses .on the street—and they are
all frame—was seriously threatened.
HowevorT once the firemen got busy,
they soon mastered the situation.
Before the flames were entirely ex
tinguished in a lapse of about 15 min
| utes, during which many persons had
returned to their homes, the shrill
blasts of the siren whistle atop of
Porter Hall, quarters of the Indepen
dent Fire Company, again were heard.
The alarm this time had been turn
ed in front the Beehler home at 1
Taney avenue, Murray Hill, occupied
by the family of Lieut. H. L. Samson,
of the Navy. A blaze had teen dis
covered on" the shingled roof, near
the chimney, which had probably been
i caused by flying sparks. The Rescue
Hose Company dispatched one of its
trucks to the scene. Cutting a small
hole in the shingle roofing, the fire
men got at the heart of the trouble,
and subdued the flames in short or
der.
The damage from both fires was
slight.

HARDING’S CANDIDACY

WASHINGTON, D. C., Mar. 19.
‘ “Attorney-General Daugherty's an

statement issued today

OF “REPUBLIC”
Manager Philip Miller Gets Ova-*
tion At Plucky Recovery From
Fire And For Giving Patrons
Beautiful New Theatre
Greeted By Large Crowd.
NOTABLE ATTRACTIONS
BOOKED TO COME
That pluck, energy and optimism
are appreciated in Annapolis was
she vn last Friday night at the re
opening of the Republic Theatre when
Manager Philip Miller ai)d Mrs. Mil
ler received an ovation, from a large
circle of friends and patrons of the
theatre who showered congratulations
c:i them for their successful recov
ery from the fire which wrecked the
Republic building. In addition to
personal messages nnd telegrams
many beautiful floral tributes were
received ranging from the elaborate
horte shoe of flowers from the Anna
polh Lodge of Elks to more simplo
! remembrances of bouquets from other
friends.
The flowers added to the beauty
of the lobby which with its red-tiled
floor and large blue vases and artis
tic wall fountain looks like an at
tractive Bun-parlor.
Come-Rack Applauded
While the spirit of the "come-back”
wu3 especially applauded on Friday
night the building itself came in tor
much favorable comment. In replac
ing the old building Mr. Miller seized
the opportunity of remodelling the
theatre, which is now first-class and
Btrictly up to date. By altering the
entrance and making a balcany that
accommodates fifty persons the thea
tre now seats the same number as
formerly but with larger seats and
far more room betwreen them, th
room thus greatly adding to the com
fort of the patrons.
New Lighting System
The new indirect lighting system is
arranged to have vari-colored lights
thrown from ten ornamental balcon
ies on the side walls and adds greats
ly to the beauty of the theatre glvi
ing a rainbow effect that intensified
i the charm of the Ivory, rose and
French gray color scheme.
The picture version of “The Hotten
tot, ’ Willie Collier’s well known
Broadway success, will be shown to
night at the theatre.
| The famous horse race, around which
the play centered is also the feature
of the picture, and is said to be an
aim-zing piece of photography and ex
hibition riding.
