IS OFFICm HERE The Goddess Spring officially as cended the throne this morning at exactly 10:29 o’clock, eastern ; standard time, as successor to King Winter, according to the astrologers, astronomers, and weather prophets generally. And if the sample of ■ weather that marked its formal de but, it is going to be a very delight ful spring indeed. The cold wave ’ from the northwest was short-lived and today there is a decided tinge of spring in the air. The sun crosses the equator going north at the exact time referred to al ove, attaches of the Nautical Al manac office determined four years ago.

It is now located in the con stellation Pisces (fishes) and will be for some years. When the sun crosses at the ver nal equinox, it rises due east and sets duo west from all points on the surface of the earth, except at thei South Pole and North Pole, where directions are at zero and have no meaning.

MSTCONFERENCE REPORTED AFTER SPIKE WEBB, BOXING MENTOR Spike Webb, director of 1 oxing at the Naval Academy, may be lured away from the Annapolis institution, according to recent rumors. From Chicago comes the word that the Mid-West Conference has made an at tractive offer to the diminutive men tor to forsake the Navy and become director of tho pugilistic art for the Big Ten. Last summer Webb had charge of boxing in the University of Illinois Summer School for Coaches and made a decided hit with the authorities. Accordingly plans were at once got ten under way to secure the Balti moreans, but until an offer of exceed ingly attractive figures was made a week or so ago he remained adamant A8 coach of the A. E. F. boxers in France and of the Olympic team in 1920 Webb has been considered one of the best boxing instructors in th* country. Since he took charge of the Middies about four years ago the Navy has achieved a prominent place in the college boxing world and his team has never lost a match. Ever since he took charge of the 29th Division fighters at Tamp An niston at the outbreak of the war Webb’s interest has been centered in service sports. Consequently it is thought that it will be difficult to lure him away from h;s first love.

LUDICROUS FARCE BY CADETS OF SI. JOHN’S | “Nothing But The Truth” To Be Produced Tomorrow ' Night CAST IS EXPERIENCED The play, "Nothing But the Truth." ; which will le given in McDowell i Hall tomorrow and Friday nights of this week, is a farce abounding in , laughs and thrills. It is built upon the simple idea of its hero speaking nothing but the , absolute truth for a stated period. He bets a friend ten thousand dollars ’ that he can do it, and boldly tackles truth to win the money. For a very short time the task is placidly easy, but Truth routs out old man Trou ble aud then things begin to happen Trouble doesn't sepm very large and aggressive when ho first pokes#hie nose into the noble resolve of tlu hero, but he grows rapidly and soon one sees the dealer in truth disrupt ing the domestic relations of his partner. In fact, Trouble works ov ertime, and reputations that have been unblemished are smirched. Sit uations that are absurd and compli cations almost knotted, pile up, all crediled to Truth, and tho result of the wager to foster and cherish that great virtue from the lips of the man who has espoused the cause of truth to win a wafcer. Keeps Audience In Laughter It is a novel idea and so well lias it been worked out that an audience is kept in throes of laughter at the seemingly impossible task to untan gle snarls in which the hero has involved all those he comes in con tact with. It is a clean bright farce of well drawn characters and was built for laughing purposes only. William Collier played "Nothing But the Truth" for a year at the Long acre Theatre, New York, and it has been on tour for over two seasons. The characters in the present cast at college are all experienced, -having taken part in other plays on numer ous occasions. Following is the cast of characters; Robert Bennett, William C. Baxter; E. M. Ralston. Carroll J. Stine; Dick (rnntlniiffl Oil Pagf 4.) LECIUREONEEPffi AT BAPTIST CHURCH Annapolitans are urged to hear the Rev.

EARLY MORNING Two Buildings Destroyed, Third Saved By Fire Fighters Using , | Chemicals— Direction Of Wind Probably Prevented Serious Conflagration. !PROPERTY OWNED BY WALTER H. HART :! „ . Fire of undetermined origin, that for a time looked as though it would I seriously menace Eastport, a thickly settled suburban section of Annapo lis, broke out at 12:30 this morn ing, and hut for the assistance given l y the volunteer firemen of the three i companies of the city, many build ings would have fallen prey to the 1 11 lines. A two-story frame dwelling house, u loccupied, a smaller structure used j for storage purposes, were destroy ed and a third, occupied by the family of Louis Hopkins, a tinner, was bad ly scorched. The property was own el by Waiter H. Hart, a large real i estate owner in the village, and the | loss, estimated at $5,000 is practically j ail covered by insurance. Origin Is Uncertain Persons crossing the Spa creek bridge were first to discover the alarm. Some say that the flames started from the outside. In dry grass, and others claim that they originated In the unoccupied building. The blaze gained great headway before the Eastport firemen reached the scene. Meanwhile, assistance was asked of the city firemen, and a chemical truck of Die Rescue Hose Company was dispatched across the way. The fire men of the village, who also have a chemical truck, and those from the city, did splendid work through the use of chemicals in holding the flames In check until the engine of the In dependent Fire Company of the city, arrived on the scene, and pumping water from Spa Creek, soon had two high pressure streams playing into the "mass of flaming embers. Direction Of Wind, Blessing The burned buildings were situat ed at the northwest end of First street and near the home property of Mr. The fact that they were ncai* the hank of the creek, and sep arated by 20 or more feet, together with the fact that the high wind was from the southerly direction, un doubtedly prevented a serious con flagration. Had the wind been from the northwest quarter, the flames would have wiped buildings out right and left in their path.
