WATER SITUATION
j 9REATLYJMPROVED
Again Filled
j And Certain Restrictions Have
Been Lifted
Repairs to the impounding dams of
| the Annapolis Water Company’s plant
! have now reached such a state that
! the rigid precautionary restrictions
j as to the use of water have been lift
! ed. This announcement was made to
day by William H. Moss, president of
the Wjiter Company.
During the emergency that arose
j when the dams were either washed
■ out or badly damaged by the cloud
burst of two weeks ago, consumers of
water were requested to economize in
all directions, especially as to wash
ing automobiles and sprinkling lawns.
Plenty of water has been pumped dur
ing the last few days, and there is an
ample suply again In the storage
; reservoirs. While the situation has
greatly improved, consumers are ask
ed. however, not to be extravagant.
Improvements Up To Connell
Through an inadvertence a para-
I graph was omitted from the report of
j President Moss, published in yester
day’s issue of The Capital, in which
he discussed proposed permanent im
provements at the water works. The
1 elipsus was:
| “Whatever is done must emanate
1 from the City Council, as the Board of
Directors of the Water Company are
, only a managing body, with full
{ power to manage, but very limited
j power to spend money for improve
! ments.”

County School Needs Aggregate
Nearly $125,000 More Than 1922
li
Nearly 1125,000 more will be needed -
for school purposes in Anne Arundel!
I county for the fiscal year, as com-'
pared to last, according to the budget'
which the County Board of Education 1
has submitted to the County Commis-]
sioners. This would appear to mean !
an increase in the tax rate for the
’ year, unless the new assessable basis
is sufficient to take care of the in-1
crease needed for schools.
Last Year’s Budget WMjsOH.7S
Last year the amount assessed for
school purposes was {204,808.75. This;
was on a total assessable basis of $26,- j
601,094. The amount asked in this
year's budget is $329,531.73, or an in
crease of $124,722.98. The respective
amounts set out in this year's budget
by the education board are as fol- j
lows:
General control, $6,990; instruc
tional service, $169,697.05; for opera-,
tlon of school plant, $24,900; for main
tenance of school plant, $20,945; for’
auxiliary agencies, $24,100; fixed;
FEDERAL INSPECTION ”1
OF CADE! BATTALION !
AT ST. JOHN’S BEGINSj
The annual inspection of the battal
ion of Cadets of St. John's College
which will furnish the basis for rat
ing in efficiency with other military
institutions of the country, began to
day and will continue through tomor
row. The inspecting officers are Col.
George W. Stuart, and Col. Frank
Rowell, of the regular United States
Infantry.
Today the corps was inspected in
close and extended order drills, and
field problems. Tomorrow there will
be an inspection on parade to be fol
lowed by formal guard mounting. St.
John’s has often been rated among
the “Big Ten” institutions from a
military standpoint, and although not
so qualified last year, it is hoped it
will reach the class as a result of the
present inspections.
A. US. MR CLASS
GIVES PERFORMANCE
II FAMOUS COMEDY
The Senior girls of the Annapolis
i High School, last evening presented
“The Rivals," the famous comedy by
Richard Sheridan. This masterpiece
of the eighteenth century was very
well acted, and the attractive cos
tumes added even more to the success
of the performance.
Eleanor Owings, as the deaf Bob
Acres, took the part excellently and
the audience was kept in gales of
laughter whenever she made her ap
pearance. Tempa Russell, as Sir An
thony Absolute, was fine and carried
the difficult parts off splendidly. Mrs.
Malaprop, as portrayed by Louise
Clow, was most charming, and her
•misuse of words very comical. Mar
garet Hill, as the much-sought-after
Lydia, took the part most effectively.
In fact, all the actors were so good K.
is needles to metion them all in detail.
The quick change of scenes was due
to Richard Williams, Bird Duckett
and Charles Crandall.
To Miss Miriam Dryden should go
much credit, for the success of “The
Rivals” was due to her untiring ef
forts and her hard work in coaching
and producing the play. The lovely
furnishings for the interior scenes
were loaned by the Globe Furniture
Company, and added much to the ef
fectiveness of the decorations.
Wallace Hambruch, a former stu
dent of the High School displayed his
artistic talent in the touching np the
scenery used during the play. His
work added greatly to the old Eng
lish settings.
The High School Orchestra played
during the evening performance and
Lucile Purdie rendered several selec
tions in the attention.

THUNDER AND HEAVY
I RAINS, HAIL WINTRY
| BLASTS, IN 24 HOURS
I Annapolis has experienced practic
ally every variety of weather during
the past 24 hours. It seems that win
ter will Just not get out of the lap of
spring. A series of thunderstorms
passed over the city during the after
noon and early evening. The storms
were accompanied by torrential rains
that continued intermittently
throughout the night.
During the early morning hours
there was a heavy rain of hail. This
caused a decided drop in temperature,
but fruits are not thought to have
been damaged by the pellets. The
mercury early this morning -register
ed around the 40-degree mark. It will
continue cool tonight, but tomorrow
the temperature will rise, and there
will be clear skies, too, according to
the weather forecast.
Last night’s rain came as a blessing
to farming interests, as early crops
were being greatly retarded because |
of lack of moisture.
