Actors, stago hands, director, electricians—all are a-flutter. The furn sitings arrived by motor truck from Haltimore this artemoon which is a bit of swank, never before in dulged in by local talent. The elec tric sign is in place over the clock face on the tower and all is in read iness for the opening *lomorrow. The cast are all stars, their male prototypes on the real stage may be found in the persons of John Drew. George Munroe, Bruce Mcßae, Eddie Fry and the John Barrymore of early days. For the female counterparts of the fair actresses in professional life one must look among such names as Julia .Marlowe, Fay Bainter. and Marie Tempest. The fact that an amateur Frances White, has been called in to fill the role originally assigned to the Elsie Ferguson of An napolis and is gutting away with it proves what a versatile crowd of ac tors the Navy Relief has at its com mand.

BLAZE FREDERICK, MR., Apr. 26.—Halt ed in its northward march by shift ing winds, the forest fire, which has been raging on Catoctin Mountain since Tuesday, was today sweeping southward over an era estimated at tetweon 3.000 and 4,000 acres. Hav ing swept northward for a distance of 7 miles, to within about three miles lof the mountain village of Catoctin 1 Furnace, the fireswas turned back wards by the changing winds and to day was approaching the little coun ty towns of Mountaimlale and Bethel. About 500 men are fighting the tire which is beyond all control, but they hold out hope that the diminishing wind may today enable them to con quer the blaze. The extensive water shed property of Frederick has not teen seriously affected, city olflcials said today. A sawmill and 50,000 feet of lumber on the property of Joseph E. Schropp. at Catoctin Fur nace, were burned yesterday.

DANCE CARVEL HALL Fridaj’, April 2/, 1923 R:no TO 12 BIDS OBTAINABLE AT DOOR I xx id 1 ss SPLENDORATTESOS ( WEDDING OF DUKE Albert, Of York, And Lady Eliz abeth Wed In Westminster Abbey Today <lty Tlir \m>< Pre.) LONDON, ENGLAND, Apr. 26.—Al bert, Duke of York, was united in marriage with Lady Elizabeth Bowes- Lyons in solemn old Westminster Abbey at 2 today with a pomp and panoply reminiscent of the spacious days of the mid-Victorian era and atr.id the tumultuous demonstrations of the vast throng that gathered in tho threatening weather to catch a glimpse of the wedding party. This was the second time in a lit tle more than a year that the King and C tieeti of England gave one of the‘r children to someone outside the ranks of royalty. Whilo the marriage of the sov ereign’s second son lias not stirred the imagination of the British Em pire as did Princess Mary’s wedding, the romance which turned a simple Scottish maiden into the wife of a Prince and suddenly transferred her from a position of relative ol scurity to a place of the fourth lady of the land, captured the hearts of the Brit ish people. Religious And Social Event Today’s ceremony was both a great religions and social event and was marked by an elaborate display of fashions and jewels. Eight hundred of England’s great est luminaries in state, court, diplo macy and society, as well as an Im pressive asseml ly of foreign princes dukes, duchesses and others cf rank and title, were liters attired in finery and jewel embollislinuuitj that repre sented the proverbial king’s ransom. In ail nine Americans witnessed the ceremony. In addition t.o Aralassador and Mrs Harvey the favored guests were seven of the American newspaper men it London who cast lots for the privi lege of writing eye-witness stories of the gorgeous spectacle. Announcement was made at tho district attorney’s office today that ad ditional charges were being drawn up against Baird and 8011. In addition to the embezzlement charges already lodged against them information was being made accus ing Baird of perjury and making false reports to the state banking depart ment and charging 801 l with forgery, it was declared.

RITCHf WOULD FIGHT GAMBLERS ON SUGAR Governor Ritchie has promised co operation in any movement to meet the extraordinary situation regarding the price of sugar. This commodity has now jumped to 11 cents per pound on the wholesale market. “A buy er’s strike” is promised, and speak ing of the matter the Governor said he would co-cperate to force specu lators to disgorge Cuban sugar they .are holding oft" the market. He ssid: “I will be glad to co-operate in any j movement which will be effective in preventing the hoarding of sugar, be cause I believe excessive purchases now simply will tend to raise prices further and thus play into the hands jof the speculators. Of course, any as sistance in my power to punish profi teers will be given.” The boycott was proposed by lead ers of the Federation of Women’s Clubs, in convention at the Southern Hotel, acting as individuals.

Baird i said that his manipulations of the! bank’s funds had been going on for twenty-five years. 110 said that spec ulations in the sugar market and in stock had been responsible for h: downfall. 8011, who admitted having taken about $160,000, declared that he had not speculated, but that the “high cost of living” had forced him to take the banks’ money. Few assets remain in the posses sion of either of the men as far as the authorities could ascertain. RESERVEDSEATSFOR j MUSICAL COMEDY READY Reserved seats for ‘‘The Man Who Owns Broadway,” George M.

I By some the unusual clang was per : haps not given more than passing notice. Others, however, heeded and • made inquiry, which developed the | fact that a new bell has just been in stalled in the clock tower of the | academic group of buildings at the Academy. And there is a good bit of interest attached to the new instrument that now tolls off the hours and half-hours jof the naval time piece. It was stated i by authorities of the Academy that j the bell was cast from metals from i the “ship’s bells” of the now obsolete j battleships Michigan. Alabama, In t diana and Massachusetts, which were . sent to the foundry, melted and the | new bell cast. The four battleships named will be recalled a c . having been used for the summer practice cruises of the midshipmen for a number of years, until the change was made whereby the middies now’ receive their summer instruction on the mod 's em warships of the navy.

COMPRBHINRIVB LOCAL AND GBRIBAL NIVA. ! EDUCATION IN ! U. S. PRESENTS GREATMLENI Dr. Angell, President Of Yale, Tells Of Its Tremendous Ex pansion In Recent Years, In Address To University Club Last Night. PROGRAM CALLS FOR NEW TAXATION WAYS Speaking before the University Club of Annapolis in McDowell Mali last night on “Some Prob lems of American Education,” Dr. James Rowland Angell, President of Yale University, made the prediction that, in spite -f the tremendous expansion of \merican education in the last 10 years, the temper of the Am erican people is such that new ways of taxation will he fought to finance the program of -educa tion. President Guy R. Clements of t ie University Club introduced President Angell as a psycholo gist and educator reared in New England and broadened by con tact with the great state institu tions of Minnesota, Michigan and C hicago, and now president of one of our country’s foremost universities. Problems Of KdnratJou Dr. Angell described his present dotjr with the Board of Visitors of tho Naval Academy as being at the end of a radius traveling with finite velocity in an infinity of directions, and dnrtng his talk spoke many times of the prob lems of the Naval Academy. “The problems of American educa tion today are two-fold. On the one hand how shall we find the financial means to provide the education which our present generation demands, and on the other,' what kind of an educa tion should we attempt to have. Tho public abhool situation the whole country over has resolved itself Into a problem of how shall we pay our public school bills. Maryland has had a big shake-up in education in the last ten years and is improving its educa tional system, and we hope Annapolis, as a city, is feeling the results of this improvement. Big cities from the Cast to the West are practically bank rupt in carrying out the program of public school education. The possi bilities of the budget system have long since been exhausted in many cities. High School Development In the extraordinary development of our high schools there has been no parallel in any other country through out all history. The high schools have expanded out of all proportion. Par ents are ambitious for their children, in 1 the program of secondary educa tion has been enriched and enlarged in ways which the broadening of our educational ideals have seemed to make necessary. This expansion has meant new trained teachers, experts and specialists in their own line. Will Pay For Education “With this tremendous expansion the bills have multiplied out of alt proportion to our system of taxation. But we need have no fear; the one thing in this country which will be paid for is education. That is the public spirit and temper of this coun -1 try. “What is true of the high schools is also true of collegiate institutions. When we see a dozen State institu tions with student bodies the year [ around from 7,000 to 12,000 students; when we see one class at California with 5,000 students; when we see my I own institution, Yale, -with 500 more I students this year than last, we won der if there is a limit. t College* Are Flooded “All the colleges are flooded with ’i students; classes have been limited. t and the most unreasonable thing is that oven our women insist on being * educated. The present generation has been hypnotized with the idea that : education is the one essential cri- I terion of civilization. The question arises, should we say that some peo ple are not fit for education; that they should be far better employed else >j where. If the conditions of entrance . and advancement are wise, this Is a I I matter that will be self-corrective, > and the unfit will be eliminated.
