REGATTA TODAY
Lively Brushes Between Var-
Varsity, Junior And Freshmen
Eights Are Expected
* •
1 With the Varsity brush attracting
> particular interest because the con
• tending crews are entered in the
| Poughkeepsie classic, June 28, and th’e
j result will furnish a line on their
work, oarsmen of Syracuse Univer
-5 sity and the Annapolis midshipmen
1 were all set for their annual regatta
on the waters of the Severn this aftcr
, noon.
Varsity, Junior Varsity and Fresh
men races will he rowed, beginning
with the Freshman contest and wind
ing up with the senior setto. The
Qpener is scheduled for 4 o’clock, wa
ter conditions permitting, and indica
tions are there will be a fine combina
tion of the elements.
Tho rival crews finished their prim
ing yesterday afternoon and were in
splendid physical shape for the en
gagements.
The middies, because of academic
duties, were out only during the aft
ernoon. The rival coaches—Glendon.
of Navy, and Ten Eyck—expressed sat
isfaction with the work of their
charges.
All the races will be rowed over
the tw'O-mile course. The Syracus
ans are a huskier and more powerful
looking lot compared to the eights
developed by Ten Eyck in former
years, and, according to the w'eights
announced today, all three, of the
visiting crews will outweigh their re
spective Navy rivals. The Orange
varsity is especially heavy averaging
179%, compared to Navy’s 173%. The
averages of the other crews are:
Syracuse second varsity, 168%; Navy,
166; Syracuso freshmen, 168%; Navy
plebes, 164%.

NAVY TOSSERS LEAVE
FOR GAME WITH PENN
Bound for Philadelphia to meet the
nine of the University of Pennsyl
f vania on Franklin Field the Navy
baseball sc.uad. 20 strong, left Anna
polis on the 8:20 o’clock car this
morning. Head Coach Blakeslee had
not decided who would do the twirl
ing. but it was considered not un
likely that Peterson would start, and
if he is not “right.” then “Slim”
Kelly will be sent in as relief.
The Middies have lost four games
in a row during the last two weeks,
their conquerors being West Vir
ginia. Washington and Lee. Pittsburg
and Georgetown, in the order named.
They have high hopes of pulling
themselves out of the rut by sending
the Quakers down to defeat in today’s
I battle.

SPORTSMEN URGED TO I
KILL BIRDS AND GAME
DESTROYING ANIMALS
A movement is under way to pro- I
teet the game of this section by en- 1
listing the aid of sportsmen in shoot
ing game destroying animals and 1
birds before they have an opportunity i
j to cause destruction during the nest- i
ing and mating season. Plans are be
| ing made to have every sportsman in
terested in game protection, spend
some time ridding woods, fields and '
marsh of predatory hawks, owls and
crows, weasels and others who an
nually kill ten times as much game
as all gunners combined.
It has been stated that the red
squirrel alone w*sl kill 209 birds a
, season, while the great horned owl
! destroys annually covey after covey of
quail. Special efforts are being made
|to enlist the aid of game lovers
j against the crow, who is described as
: destroying individually more birds of
all kinds, more birds’ eggs and young
poultry, than any other bird that ever
flapped a wing.
AH game destroying animals and
birds are classed by sportsmen and
game lovers as vermin, and it is ex
pected that vermin hunting clubs ern
be organized here and that members
of established gun clubs will join in
the movement by going into the woods
and shooting as many game destroy
ers as they can find.
Entertainments At

The two school entertainments
l given in the old school building at
j Shady Side recently were a wonder
j ful success. Never before were so
• many people crowded into the build

were showered with congratulations
from every side. The management of

members of the board of directors
will be elected during that day and a
ballot-box will be in charge of Mrs.

unable to attend then to cast their
vote some time during the day.

of the work of town and county; the
secretaries of the “Y” will report on
their work, and each chairman of the
various commitees will give briefly an
outline of the different activities of
the "Y.” The membership meetings
give each “Y” member an opportunity
to become thoroughly acquainted with
all branches of the work and the
methods used in this work.
Every member is cordially Invited
to come to the "Y” at 7:30 p. m- Mon

GOVERNOR AF CONTEST

Students of the Maryland State

the literary societies of the institu
tion. Miss Lida Lee Tall, principal,
presided.

Miss Tall and the students on the re
sults shown in the scholastic term.

MIDDIES’ “JUNE
WEEK” WILL BE

Ceremonies Of Commencement
Days At Naval Academy Now
Only Two Weeks In Offing,
And Routine Of Drills Will Be
Sideracked.
WILL BE MORE LIKE
COLLEGE FESTIVITIES
“Juno Week ' or commence
ment period at the United States
Naval Academy now is only
three weeks in the ofting, and
staid old Annapolis is beginning
to perk up for the gay festivities
that mark that occasion, and ring
down the curtain on the regular
academic term. Already there is
a vanguard of visiters in the city,
arrivals being chiefly relatives or
close friends of the midshipmen
graduates. Many others have
made reservations at the hotels
and the various hoarding houses.
Diplomas For About 425
Approximately 425 young men will
roeeive their coveted “sheepskins,"
and automatically their commissions
J 'is officers of the service. The class
at present has a membership of 435,
but indications point to aomo being
found delinquent In the final examina
tions that will begin within the noxt
few days. Not all of the graduates
will go directly in the line of the navy,
as 25 have applied for commissions
as second lieutenants in the military
arm of the naval service—the Marine
Corps. The others, however, will be
commissioned as full-fledged ensigns.
Honor Man From Pacific Coast
Kenneth M. McLaren, of Washing
ton State, Is expected to be the “honor
man” of the class. He has “starred"
since his “Plebe," or first year, and
at the last annual examinations he
had worked his way to the top. Close
ly pressing him, however, is Harry
R. Carson, Jr., of Louisiana, who waa
less than two points behind McLaren
in the tests last May.
This year's events preceding the
graduation exercises will be decidedly
more like university and college com
mencements. For the past few years
there has been a gradual elimination
of the many drills and practical exer
cises until now they are practically
nil, so that the graduates and the un
derclassmen will have much more time
to mingle with their friends. This
has been made possible by the fact
that no more does the official Board of
Visitors, appointed by the President
and Congress to investigate needs of
the institution, visit the school during
June Week. Instead, the board as
sembles here several weeks in ad
vance, when academic routine is in
full swing. This year’s board com
pleted its work nearly a month ago.
Baccalaureate Sermon Jane S
The ceremonials and festivities
leading up to commencement day,
which will be June 7, will be inaugur
ated on Sunday, June 3, when Rev.
Sydney K. Evans, Chaplain of the
Academy, will preach the baccalaure
ate sermon to the graduates. Two
formal drills and three “dress par
ades" will be all the military eclat to
. mark the period, and the rest of the
; time will be given over to social func
> tions, both formal and Informal, in
i eluding numerous dinner parties, and,
in many instances, family gatherings,
i Class reunions of old grads, will be
F in order, too.
So Drills Opening Dap
Monday, June 4, will be a day of re
, spite from the official side, except for
a dress parade by the regiment late in
l the afternoon. There will be band
. concerts, morning and afternoon, and
