1 JOHN’S WINS SECOND
HONOR FOR ORATORY
Speaking on the subject “The Spirit
of America,” William C. Baxter,
representing St. John’s College, won
! second honors in the annual contest
of the Oratorical Association of Mary
land Colleges, held in alumni hall of
Western Maryland College, at West
minster, last night.
First honors went to Washington
College. The successful orator was
Townshend Hows, whose address was
entitled “A Basis for World Govern
ment.” The contest was extremely
close between Howes and Baxter.
I)r. A. N. Ward, president of West
ern Maryland College, presided over
the ceremonies and delivered an ad
dress of welcome, and the response
was made by Prof. Sydney S. Handy,
of the chair of English at St. John’s,
who is the local representative on
the Intercollegiate body.
For Western Maryland was Clifford
H. Richmond, whose topic was “They
Shall Pay.” The University of Mary

NOW OPEN TO FRUIT
GROWERS OF COUNTY
The appointment of Thomas L. M.
Mears as the Anne Arundel county
representative of the Fruit Growers
Nurseries of Wayne county. New
York, opens for the farmers and di
rectors of Anne Arundel county a
purchasing market for all of the
county need for stock.
The Fruit Growers’ Nurseries are
not limited as their name would ap
pear to indicate to the selling of fruit
tree saplings only. Their line in
cludes everything in berries, grape
vines, ornamental and shade trees,
weeping trees, evergreens, shrubs,
hedging, bulbs, etc.
The northern grown sapling is said
to have advantages for planting in
southern climates inasmuch as its be
ing l red in a cold climate makes it
particularly alle to stand the slight
changes of temperature which occur
in Maryland. There is nothing new
alout the purchasing locally of north
ern grown plants, but the establish
ment of the agency with Mr. Mears
gives the first direct contact that
Anne Arundel county has been of
fered in this way.
All members of Annapolis Council,
Knights of Columbus, are requested
to meet at St. Mary’s Hall at 7 o’clock
this evening to go to home of our
late Brother Conroy and hold serv
ices for the dead.

ALL IN CAST WELL /
SUITED TO PARTS
Undoubtedly destined to mark the
triumphal climax of the many artistic
musical comedies and dramatic pro
ductions staged at St. Mary’s Hall
, during the past season, “The Man
Who Owns Broadway,” which was
given its first performance there last
night, made an instantaneous hit with
the extremely enthusiastic audience.
With J. L. Convery, who has given un
stiutingly of his talent and energy to
make this show the “best ever,” dir
ecting it, the success of the produc
tion was assured. The popularity of
Mr. Convery, both as an actor and
director, is not to be marveled at, in
asmuch as he combines more than his
share of dramatic talent with untiring
vigor and an ability to get the most
out of every member of the cast.
In addition to Mr. Convery’s splen
did acting and directing, however, it
is to be noted that every other mem

eye to their talents and suitability

Because of lack of sufllcient evi

of violating the liquor laws.
In the case of Andy Johnson, in

CHUN TO PRODUCE
PLAT "IN DOIL LAND"
Two Hundred From City And
County Clubs Being Coached
By Miss Burch
AT “CIRCLE” ON MAY 15
Under the direction of Miss Mary
Burch, of the Y. W. C. A., the children
of the various town and county clubs
will give the play, “In Doll Land,” on
May 15, in the Circle Playhouse.
“In Doll Land” is one of the most
unusual plays that Miss Burch has
ever given, and is one full of laughs
a-plenty. It is the story of two little
girls’ experiences in “Doll Land,” and
is a very interesting and quaint story.
Among the dolls that the children im
personate will be “Limpy, the Rag
Doll, the King of all dolls, and his
chorus of Rag-Dolls, the Tin Soldiers
and their captain will do all sorts of
intricate military drills with the in
fantry and cavalry.
Big C lown And LltUe Clown
Hoop-la, the Clown, will be there,
and all the little clowns, who will give
a fascinating dance; then “Fat-Sing,”
the Chinese Doll, and her chorus of
little “Chinee” will be most delight
ful. The most gorgeous of all dolls
will be the French Doll, for she will
be resplendent in real Parisian finery,
and every one loves a French doll
The picturesque Quaker dolls will add
a note of quaintness in their soft gray
costumes. The Sailor dolls will give a
song and dance, and the Colonial dolls
will show one how he statelv minuet
should be danced. A note of some
thing different will be the funny Me
chanical dolls and the Scotch dolls,
with their “Highland Fling,” will give
a touch of the unusual.
Two Hundred In Cast
The story is one of great interest
and will prove as delightful to
“grown-ups” as to the little ones.
The cast numbering 200 include chil
dren from the ages of four to fifteen
years. There will be a matinee per
formance on Tuesday, May 15, at 4
p. m., for children, and an evening
performance the same day at 8 p. m.
in the Circle Playhouse. The prices
for the matinee will be 25 cents for
children and 50 cents for adults.
Prices for the evening performance
